    [FINAL RELEASE] Eviternity

    Really excited to play through these maps. I’ve only played the first couple so far, as I’m trying to wait for RC2 to really dig in. I believe I heard it was almost ready for release. Is there any ETA currently?

    Oops. Stopped by walmart last night to pick up a couple things on my way home and saw Doom 2016 on the rack for $16 for PS4. Couldn’t resist. Only spent about 30 min on it so far, but seems like it will be fun to play through when I want a break from that sweet old school action.

    Thanks again everyone for the warm welcome and recommendations. Busy weekend, so not a whole lot of Doom happening, but still working my way through Doom II with a little Heretic on the side. I had forgotten about the awesomeness that is Tricks and Traps. Also, I've checked out the first couple of levels of several of the suggested wads. TVR!, Perdition's Gate, and Double Impact so far, all of which look good. Of those, I'll probably work through TVR! first, based on what I've read about it and experienced so far. p.s. I also watched some of a Sunder playthrough...wtf haha. Maybe one day.

    After a little poking around I went ahead and grabbed Perdition's Gate from Mustaine's site :)

    Hi, thanks. And thanks elend and Gaea74 also! Another wad that is on my radar and I would like to try is Doom the way id did. I understand the level design/aesthetics are meant to be similar to the original 3 episodes, but does the difficulty level approximate the OG episodes as well? As for my current skill level, I played ep1-3 on Hurt Me Plenty and while it was comfortable, I wouldn't call it easy. Some of that was probably the controls, though, as keyboard+mouse seems way easier to control now. I don't intend for this to become a wad recommendation thread, but certainly give me a few more examples of interesting mods with a somewhat lower skill requirement if you have any handy. Heretic seems roughly similar in difficulty so far, but still on e1. I think all I played back in the day was the shareware version of this one. Oh, and I'm definitely looking forward to Romero's upcoming e5 wad!
  7. I haven’t played Doom since 1996 (minus a partial play through of Doom II in college at some point) and I am completely blown away by the amount of resources there are available and the support these games still get from the community! Also the fun I’m having playing/replaying these. i purchased the iwad files from Steam and got GZDoom up and running. So far I’ve played through the first three episodes of Ultimate Doom with keyboard only controls (the way I remember from back then) but now I have mouse + wasd set up for my current playthroughs of Heretic and Doom II. I also have Eviternity and NEIS ready to go soon. Needless to say, I’m pretty excited about how much fun I’m having. Anyway, mostly just wanted to introduce myself and see if there are any other recommendations than what I’m currently doing. After Doom II I’ll try out e4 and probably try to get into the Final Doom wads.
