  1. This evening I worked some more on the new version of my webpage. (I took the old one down a month or two ago. There's only a placeholder page there right now). I've traded in the black demons motif for a green electronic/atomic one. The primary focus of the page is still going to be video games. Notably map reviews. Not the crappy little blurbs like I've done in the past, but full-length reviews.

    Reviewing maps is a bit difficult. Or rather, fitting qualities that aren't clear-cut onto a numerical scale is difficult. Sifting through a sea of crappy maps trying to find ones that are halfway worth playing is also somewhat difficult. I'm only choosing to review maps whose gameplay is acceptable. I'm not going to be as picky as say, Team Shambler, though. I'll review a map that sucks in other aspects, as long as the gameplay isn't bad. This way I'll at least not feel obligated to play all the way through some of the worst abominations out there.

    Of course, it may not have been the greatest idea to have started with the Doom 1 maps. Many of them are quite bad. But then, there are many awful Doom 2 maps also, so perhaps not. Doom 1 maps seem to have their own brand of strangeness, though. Attempts (mostly unsuccessful) to imitate the Shores of Hell, I suppose.

    I did the first review tonight. It wasn't a great map. Not a terrible map, but not a very good map.

    I'm not taking submissions for maps to review at the current time, so if you were planning to pimp yours here, forget it.

    And don't hold your breath because there's no telling when I'll actually put any of this stuff up.

      There are a few gems.
