The /newstuff Chronicles #447
Preliatus on Extreme Weapon Pack: None of the weapons work a large percentage of the time, leading the player to be vulnerable to monster attack while the "reloading" animations take effect--ranging from degreasing your pistol, to doing a personal manicure on your nails, or waiting thirty seconds for the BFG replacement to fire, not counting the vacuum cleaner.

The /newstuff Chronicles #446

Tib on Swim With The Whales: Ah, Swim With The Whales... what can I say about it that will tell the prospective player of its brilliance? All I can say is that it's a nice little collection of three maps by Ribbiks, based around building an abstract environment with very challenging gameplay. This time around Ribbiks rolled the dice and ended up with the colour blue as the basis for the maps, get it? It's called Swim With The Whales because whales swim in water and water is blue, how artistic and abstract is that? (more)
