    Slaughterfest WADs: Pro or Anti?

    No one invited the troll-whores to this thread. Also, your Midol needs refilling.

    Slaughterfest WADs: Pro or Anti?

    That is a fantastic idea of watching someone actually beat a slaughter map!

    Slaughterfest WADs: Pro or Anti?

    I listened to most of the Interview. I admit I had no idea there was a Doom Radio LOL!....very interesting points they make.

    Slaughterfest WADs: Pro or Anti?

    I will agree with you, yakfak, that the majority of slaughter WADS are among the most beautifully designed WADS out there. Thank you for your input! :)

    Slaughterfest WADs: Pro or Anti?

    Thank you for your input, Agent6 :) It's interesting, for me, to read a "Pro" perspective and its whys.
  6. I am not understanding the attraction of playing a "Slaughterfest" WAD as single player. To me, playing them is nothing short of just plain suicide. The last one I played and actually completed was Unholy Realms and it seemed like all I really did was kill 10 monsters, save game, then after your dead, load saved game and kill 10 more. Repeat until end of Map. But there are many who seem to love a good Slaughterfest WAD. In fact, that's all they'll play. What is the attraction here? Are you Pro Slaughterfest WAD player or Anti? Please tell us why.

    What's your favourite band?

    Pink Floyd is my absolute fave. Seconds are Alice in Chains and Nine Inch Nails.

    Valiant: Vaccinated Edition

    I, too, liked this version over the original. Great eye candy here. Beautifully designed. Challenging, but I would have liked to seen more puzzles. You already know that anything (especially) esselfortium, Espi, skillsaw, and all the other talented mappers on this game had a hand in, is going to be nothing short of awesome. If you are into combat, then this is the WAD for you. 4.5 out of 5 Stars.

    Newdoom Community Project

    This was my second time around with this Newdoom Community Project; the last time I played it was probably a year ago… The Good: - Mixed bag of Mapsets - Definitely some eye candy - LOADS of puzzles - Some traps to keep you on your toes - Tons of rewarding secrets - Secret Maps were good, especially Map 32 The Bad: - Combat was almost too easy, even on UV In Short: I had a lot of fun with this WAD. But I absolutely disliked Map 02 - everything about it. But most of the other 31 Maps make up for it. But other than that, if you like WADS that emphasize on puzzle solving, with average combat, then this WAD is for you. The later Maps are awesome and they're what bring this game from a little above average to a lot above average. I was hoping for more difficult combat like its successor, though. Definite replay value. Thanks for all your effort in making this great game! 4 out of 5 Stars.
  10. I could not agree any more with every word in this post.

    The Good: - Not a whole lot - It's only 13 levels - kinda The Bad: - Very linear mapsets - Lack of ammo - you're gonna starve in this area - Hallways upon hallways upon hallways - Terrible sound effects, especially the final Boss - The HUD - Horrible music - Very weird atmosphere - Unrewarding secrets - That gut wrenching, ear piercing, double "errrrrrrrrrt!" just before the explosions as the Map ends - 3 or 4 levels are pretty much identical - Slaughterfest endings In Short: Oh Gawd, what was that I just played? My eyes and ears hurt now... One of the Maps (I forget which one - Map05?) has an "ending" that brings you to a huge city-like room with ~200-300 monsters. By the time you reach this room, you are left with hardly any ammo for any of the limited weapons you possess. 95% of the ammo available in this room is upon your entry to it - 4 cell packs and a plasma rifle. Don't worry, you'll find the other 5% as you see all the 0's by your weapons in your HUD as you're fleeing for survival from all the mid-level monsters because your chainsaw, unfortunately, is not a magical chainsaw. Sorry, I can't recommend Equinox for all the reasons above. The fun just wasn't there for me. 1 1/2 Stars out of 5

    MARSWAR V3.01

    The Good: - Lots of everything to assist you on your journey - Lots of secrets, most of which are rewarding - Some huge maps - Decent puzzles - Great choice of music - none was annoying - Hardly a slaughterfest, even on UV, but not exactly a breeze, either The Bad: - The first 2 or 3 Maps are simple – in fact, they are simple to the point where they are annoying - That Map (28 User Interface) with all the red, triangular elevators. I see the Tron "feel" of it, but it still annoyed the hell out of me - Final Map could have been more original In Short: I didn’t think I would like this WAD as I played the first 2 or 3 Maps. And you probably will think the same thing. But get past those, and you have a pretty good WAD here. I loved the button that turns out all the lights thus making the Map a living nightmare for doing so! LOL!!! I won't tell you which Map it's on so have fun! :P Nothing fancy here. Most of the atmosphere and Mapsets are pretty average by today’s standards, but I’m sure it was the cutting edge almost 10 years go. More importantly, the game play is fun, and to me, that’s all that matters. Great 90’s nostalgic feel. Well done for a one man job! :) 4 out of 5 Stars

    Innocence X

    What I disliked: The 64/PSX (whatever) sounds, the lack of ammo, the unrewarding secrets, the recoiling of weapons and the "new" translucent Imps. I especially disliked the atmosphere - my eyes were hurting after Map 04. Almost every button you activate will spawn monsters coming out of the woodwork. I DID like the Mapsets, though. It's unfortunate that the atmosphere ruined them for me. This game should've been called "Spectre" 'cause there were more of them than every other monster in the game. Again, the gloomy atmosphere made them especially annoying. I've read the sequel to this WAD is much better...but for this one, it just wasn't fun for me. 1 1/2 Stars out of 5
  14. I never noticed the lack of bullet holes. I am very satisfied and even more grateful for the one you made. I really appreciate it! :)))))))
  15. I still can't get over that you made this, Empyre. And it only took you 15 minutes!!! I spent 3 hours searching for one!!! It was EXACTLY what I was looking for! Thanks again! :)
