Spankage

Recommended Posts

Just when my faith in humanity was starting to restore something horrible happens. As many of you may know, famed designer of Ghostbusters Doom and sprite maker for the stars, Scuba Steve has some bad news for us on his most recent endeavor Action Doom. Apparently the unthinkable has happened, and Action Doom has leaked. Normally Doomworld would not report on leaks of this sort, and any reference to such a leak would be nuked in the comments and forums. However the developer of Action Doom has acknowledged this leak (as well as MancuNET), so it's safe to talk about now. If you have any information at all then don't hesitate to contact Scuba Steve, and please post your thoughts in the news comments. Also, here is a picture of a platypus.

Clearly, a tactical strike is in order. Since we have no target, I say hit Steve, as he's not released SS:AD yet.

It just goes to show that you cannot trust anyone. This is indeed a black day in the community's history...

How old is this news story? I never would have noticed it if I hadn't been bored enough to read something entitled "Spankage."

Is this for real or is this just Cyb posting fake news?

So spankage is the new word for irrelevant news, huh?

Leakage Is Bad


this really sucks. 2 projects that people are working their butts off to bring us and some jackass has the grand idea to steal them. this is one of the things that really pisses me off nowadays. I hope stuff like this stops, and I dont care whether or not it happens in my lifetime, as long as this crap stops.

Shouldn't this have been posted 10 days ago?


Yeah... that's what I was gonna say. This doesn't sound real at all... heh.

Whether you believe it or not, it's real.

To all those saying Action DooM will be delayed because of the hacking action, ill just remind you that what was leaked is what Scuba Steve has, nothing more and nothing less, so its pretty good to understand it wasnt finished yet.
Also I'd like to point out the April [1st] release was one big fake by Scuba Steve. Ever tried to kill the end boss ? Notice that it has Newdoom printed on the wall ?

To everyone saying this is no Beta: I'd like to point out that THIS is what you wanted Scuba Steve to release upon the doom community, theres no such thing as a much better release on Scuba's Hard Drive!

To Scuba: I suggest you stop lying to your fans about how much was stolen/compromised, or I'll have to release everything just to prove my point. And you know what you got, as I do.

Ok, now I'm really starting to doubt the legitimacy of this. All of these sound ridiculously familiar. Scuba Steve's original posting reads almost verbatim in style for Valve's statement after the HL2 leak and now Ralphis' reply sounds exactly like the reply that the AnonymousLeaker posted on the Steam forums when Valve claimed that the Leaker only got a hold of an unplayable early alpha version and not the full source. The Leaker then released a compiled version of the source and a playable version of the game. All this sounds a little too close... If it's not a fake, then something's really wrong with this community. If it is, it's a nice joke, but as said, it's a few days late...

This is very real, I downloaded it from Nanami's mancubus.net webspace. It was titled 'newaction.zip'. I told Manc about it on IRC, and he told me I wasn't supposed to see it, then he took it off.

If this is real and such a serious issue, then why the heck are there links to stupid images in the news post? If this is real and Steve is upset by the whole episode, then they're completely inconsiderate and inappropriate. If this isn't real, then like I said whoever came up with this idea is a bit late.

Yeah, for sure... I mean, check this out:

Doesn't that seem a little too coincidental? Either this is being done in really bad taste or this is a well executed joke. Either way, it's hard to believe that you guys are being so naive about this. You can just ignore these similarities...
