Here is Torn, famous for his poor English grammar. I hope these wads will give everybody something to play until Christmas Eve. This newstuff includes Death Tormention 3 and Nimrod: Project Doom, and also a few joke maps. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all you Doomers, and let us hope for another good year of Dooming!

From the creators of RTC-3057 comes Nimrod - Project Doom, a mod for Skulltag with new weapons and maps. It is based on the Nimrod mod for Doom Legacy finished in 2002, which also originally was going to be a deathmatch mod. This mod has some really nice deathmatch maps plus new skins for weapons and players. It can played as a new Skulltag episode or online with your friends (or enemies). I really love the music and the levels are beautiful. And the Skulltag spheres are used to useful extents and not just slapped in the map. The only complain is the bots' error messages, but kristus writes about that in the text file. People, you have to get this. If you are a deathmatch freak and have Skulltag installed, download this and get online. Wins the prize as newstuff 259's best deathmatch mod/wad.

This smells like a joke map, however it at least has gameplay. The only things that makes this a ZDoom map are a few slopes, a mirror (I hate that trap, heh, I almost peed in my pants) and the "best boss battle ever" (tm). Play it for a few minutes' fun and for checking the last monster, it made me laugh for a second.

A silly new palette for all you people out there included with a silly map. Skip it or play it just for a waste of some of your time.

This map set has 7 maps including a Nuts clone (however I would list it as a Nuts lite). I will only review the first 6 maps as I guess everyone knows what Nuts is about. The main theme has techbases surrounded by cliffs and forests, this mapset should give you a great time. Except I don't understand why the author included a Nuts clone, seems pointless to me. However this mapset is worth a download.

The third of the Death Tormention series, and a nice welcome. The maps all mostly follow the old style of Episode 4 (wood, marble and tech). Many of the maps are quite blocky, I could miss some more curved sides, but the maps are quite big and finely detailed. Death Tormention 3 has many well-designed monster traps, with many surprises. But the area of e4m8, where you enter a very dark area with many invisble demons, is just annoying. But other than that, this map set has some nice action and is worth a download for all you Ultimate Doom fans. Death Tormention 3 wins the prize as newstuff #259's best single player wad.

Skulltag - Deathmatch - 967 KB -
A set of maps for Skulltag deathmatch. But I feel the author could have used more of Skulltag's features, he added weapons, spheres and not really anything more. Another thing is, if you are going for very detailed maps, then this mapset has some really plain areas. I don't care much for very detailed maps (as it can affect the gameplay in a bad way), but some more details in these Skulltag maps could have been great. However here is a little note from the text file: "New maps from scratch" and that is a lie! I have checked, and at least half of these maps are from other wads such as the Dwango series and others. I am sure I have seen map18 too somewhere, forgot where though. There is of couse also a edited E1M1, this time decorated as a hell cave with a poor texturing (missing star* textures, etc.).
