Cacowards 2021 Mentionation Thread

Recommended Posts

Is there any merit in mentioning specific levels in megawads? 

 

If so, I think Map 17 was the standout from the fab Auger:Zenith.

 

Fantastically balanced and enjoyable.

+1 Haste

 

In a year already filled to the brim with spectacular releases, this is a stand out. Short, punchy maps with no fat, and frequently visually appealing.

Not to be a downer, but have we lost any community members this year? When a prominent member passes away, news travels fast, but I'd hate to miss eulogizing members because they were less well known.

No hard evidence, and not this year, but the OP of this thread is my biggest concern:

People are allowed to have their own opinions.

Besides, it's probably the best DBP up to date and stands to be a very solid megawad, especially since most DBPs are done in one month.

My nomination for the Espi award is Aleksey Kamenev, also known as 4shockblast. He is a very prolific speedrunner, and has the most demos on the Doom Speed Demos Archive of anyone, with over 2480 demos. He was also the very first person to complete E2M8: Tower of Babel in the UV Pacifist category. However, by far his biggest achievement was when he broke a record that stood for over 20 years when he became the first person ever to get a legitimate run of E1M1: Hangar in eight seconds.

Zone 400. No bells or whistles. Just simple, fun and fast gameplay. Great for Corruption Cards and other mods.

 

Only MAP26 with pistol start on nightmare. :D

Not sure if a beta release is eligible, but this was my favorite thing this year : Atmospheric Extinction

Generally, no; we usually just wait for a final build and then consider a project... But occasionally this isn't viable (looking at you, Eternal Doom IV.)

+1 Skulltiverse

 

After playing through it for the MegaWAD Club, I think it's definitely Cacoward material. One of the better and most cohesive community projects I've played in a while (that isn't from an ongoing series).

What's next? Falklands / Malvinas Doom?

I agree about Mtpain, he makes enjoyable videos. Honestly, he gets cranky whenever any remotely stupid questions pop up (I do like his responses whenever someone asks about the voice of the Delinquent). Still, some kind of award referring to his comprehensive and originally consistent megawad reviews (of which I believe hasn't really been a thing on youtube before)  would be nice.

When does he get cranky? I chat with him in comments sections and he's really considerate.

Just some of his responses to some of the stupider questions. Maybe he thinks he comes across as snarky, but he sounds too blunt for that. Specifically, a patron suggested that he'd have to adjust his attitude regarding Eternal Doom, and his response was that tight kind you hear from people on the verge of screaming something angry and profanity-laden, like some bratty kid insisting no one should question how they think about things. I do tend to think he was just not in a great mood for that sort of thing.

This is a solid mentionation, but don't be surprised if it doesn't translate into an award this year, or this five-year plan, heh. 4shock is one of the most prominent members of the current speedrunning community, so why print the book with only half the chapters written. To not quote a famous someone, he does not belong in a museum!

Honestly, I barely read this response as snarky, let alone cranky. It is his show afterall.

I don't think I've ever mentionated (if that's even a word) this many wads in one year.

2021 has been absolutely nuts.

Hey y'all, this thread is for mentionations, not unrelated discussion about random wads or for telling other folks their mentionations are invalid.

 

[EDIT] For context, there used to be a string of off-topic posts here, but they got pruned (thanks!) -- all is well now; carry on. :P

*Finally* got around to Heartland and it's pretty great. Excellent showcase for the Eternity engine. So I'm popping back in to say:

thanks to the GLES build on the new GZDoom release i was able to play and complete @msx2plus project: Time Tripper.
Its seriously amazing and a marvelous otherworldy new experience.
Its something i was searching for since TerminusEst13 made Nocturne In Yellow for Gloome a few years back.

Good mash ups of Bullet Hell and FPS are not usual, and this one is one i would totally pay for.

Congratulations, msx2plus!
You made something that i found similar to Hellsinker but for Doom :)

Hope you can fulfill your vision to the end!
:D

Kill is a shoo-in for the Mordeth award!

 

 

I mean, it was technically finished, just unreleased. Seriously, this is probably gonna delay Devilution, just so they can win the Mordeth next year, unless Mordeth itself somehow sees release then too.

It wasn't finished until this month.  It sat on my hard drive in an unfinished state.
