Hi guys, pritch here. So Cyb wondered if anyone else could have a stab at /newstuff, and I said “Sure, I can do that”, much in the same way as someone in the US army said “Sure, we can do that” when asked to find Osama Bin Laden. Anyway, hardly the baptism of fire it might have been as there are just two entries this week, and one’s a sort-of re-release. Doom 3 hangover maybe? Oh well.

The first DM map in this week is based on a storage area. There is a central arena with standard weapons, not too large with a few crates and a tight corridor that runs around it, with BFG, Plasma Gun and Rocket Launcher accessible via elevator. Spawn spots are well-placed and campers won’t find it easy unless they are determined. There is plenty of opportunity to kill people going for the BFG either from the rocket perch or through the use of a plasma stream along the upper level etc. Overall, a nice little DM map that should prove fast and fair.

Last week Xaser gave us 0verp0wer weap0ns and this week he gives us… 0verp0wer weap0ns! Well this time they’re just even more 0verp0wered as Xaser still found TNT Lost Episode too hard; I must admit I found it pretty ball breaking myself. The weapons look fairly decent (we’ve seen a lot of the sprites elsewhere before), some more so than others, like the (ridiculously) powerful plasma gun which can kill a Hell Knight inside 2 seconds and the BFG that now acts like a super-railgun (see screenie)… anyway you get the idea.
