The /newstuff Chronicles #472
Zalewa on Bauhaus: If it's not the best WAD that I have played recently, it's definitely one of the best. The fact that it's been mentioned on the "runners up" list in 2014 Cacowards speaks for itself, although I believe that it clearly deserved to be up there with the "top ten". Everything here isn't just done well, it's done beyond well, and it's also original, refreshing and very atmospheric. (more)

Have you seen my chainsaw?

Multiple sources have let us know about an entry recently posted to Bethesda's blog where MythBusters investigates if it's really possible for the Doomguy to carry all that stuff:

In this special episode dedicated to the hobby near and dear to our hearts, we’re excited that id Software’s own Tim Willits will be helping Adam and Jamie dig into an often-discussed topic of FPS games: Is it really possible for someone to carry all those health packs, guns, and even a chainsaw?

The episode is scheduled to air on January 31st.
