...The weirdest was the "souls wall" with animated faces on E3M3. it's a pity that most developers are going for realism today and there's little interest for this sci-fi setting.


By the "souls wall" do you mean that awesome "trapped-souls'-faces-as-I-like-to-call-them" wall? In other words...


SP_FACE1?




I love that texture! I can't decide whether it looks better as a still, normal wall texture, its classic scrolling appearance or its warping appearance with ZDoom texture warping. :)

Hmm, my first memory is probably my dad playing Alien Vendetta and not letting me watch, because "I'll get nightmares" and it was about 10pm...

Hehe, a couple years back I went and translated a bunch of Polish Doom reviews for a guy who was writing a book about Doom. I still have these on a disk somewhere, though I'm not sure if I haven't deleted the scans.



Nice! Why would this guy need Polish articles of them all? Also, do you happen to be Polish? I'm asking because Polish is a very hard language to learn. Where did you learn it, assuming it's not your mother tongue?

Speaking of old reviews etc. when I clicked "Doom" in my Steam library today, it showed a piece of news referencing an old article from PC Gamer. It was dated May 1994 and it was the first issue of PC Gamer in the USA:

http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/08/02/m...doom-obsession/

Inside you will find links to full-sized scans.

It is my mother tongue, teehee :P

As for why he needed them... well, I truly cannot remember it, but I think he posted a request for old Doom-related materials on some forum, I made an offer to translate some Polish articles, and he accepted. The completed book didn't make any use of them though.
