  1. So, does that mean it'll have Pestov Platforms? :D

    I'm Glad Doom Eternal Is Hard

    You obviously haven't played Vanquish. Doom Eternal is basically first-person Vanquish, but much worse.

    So I emailed John Romero and here's what he said

    Daikatana is a good game that got hated on for reasons entirely external to the game.

    Condemner - Texan Death Metal

    We're not dead! Here's a rehearsal version of the title track of our next album, upcoming "when it's done"...

    Dunno if it's better to get ahold of you here or on Discord, but either way, here's a new Condemner rehearsal track!  This is going to be the title track on the next album....

      Sweet, rotten. Sounds like you're going back further in time, from a referential standpoint. Rehearsal quality aside, there's an aura of analog-era sleaze to proceedings. Going to be self-released again?

    2. Cynical


      Interesting that it sounds more analog -- the recording methods were largely the same as the last album for everything except the drums... but the drums are real this time, and on a real kit (not sample replaced, like most albums are these days), which may be making all of the difference.  As for whether it's going to be self-released, the answer is "probably" -- if a label comes to me asking to release it, the answer may well be "yes", but given that no distro on earth was interested in even *carrying* the first album, I'm doubting that will happen.

    What's Your Favorite Band Ever?

    Nothing will ever top Morbid Angel's 1985-1993 run.

    What if Classic DOOM gets forgotten..?

    Everything gets forgotten on a long enough timeline.
  9. My guess is you haven't played a lot of maps, then (or, more likely, it has and you didn't realize it). Putting enemies high or low enough that they can't be shot from certain angles easily is a time-tested design technique.

    Not completely; more complex stairbuilder setups that work in vanilla can break in Boom (and vice-versa). Been there, run into that.

    The DWmegawad Club plays: Hell Revealed 2

    I'm really surprised to see the love for Map 15. A map that starts with a mandatory one-try SR50 to a secret BFG? Uh...

    Does anybody really value Cacowards?

    It may not be as grandiose as a lot of Eternal's work, but it's one of the few things I've played in recent years where the traps managed to off-balance me and surprise me, even if I had no problems actually surviving them. Eternal has always had a knack for sketching out the angles and traps in such a way as to outwit the player who thinks they've seen everything and know every Doom mapping trope, and he's still really on his game with Endpoint.

    If you had read the post, you'd see I already did The fact that we need a Forgotten Cacoward list says it all. But a few more that aren't on any of those lists: Grime Disturbia Dark Resolution 2008 Endpoint Doxylamine Moon: Overdose Claustrophobia: The Walls Close In Asylum of the Wretched Monster Hunter Ltd.
