Ok, so.... I
actually have two reviews for you today. the first one is
and is (naturally) based on the movie "aliens". The second
offering of the day (also reviewed by zorah) is of a map
released this week on the archives (in beta stage at this
Axe Fortress. click on the highlighted text to go

I'm kind of
digging the nostalgia I'm discovering as I dig out these old
maps and give them a playthrough and review that is 20 years
in the making. I'm especially happy to finally get some
recognition to the pioneers of the Doom mapping community
who didn't have review sites back in the day to submit their
work to. Neal - wherever you are - thankyou and well done

While maybe not the hardest damn wad out there, this one
does put up a fight, though not necessarily in enjoyable
ways. On most maps in this wad, you are immediately pitted
against an angry horde and have to act quick to annihilate
them and force some breathing room into the situation. Click

eric bring us two reviews of a single level total conversion
for doom2 based on the classic (and chilling) slasher film -
Friday the 13th. Apparently, there is only one badass - you
know who he is, and, of course, he can return from the dead.
what more could you ask for? crappy 80's paint colors and
jason? let's go! click on the pic!

thoughts on wolfenstein - the new order.
this is not
intended to be a comprehensive review, just some quick
thoughts on the game.
please come up with something new? i mean, really. it's just
another fps for god sakes. it doesn't offer anything
groundbreaking in terms of gameplay. it's very linear and i
hate walking up to a door only to find out that i can't open
the damn thing! at least let me open it to see a deadly fall
through a bomb blasted wall or hit me with some sort of
surprise! just seeing a circle with a red line through it is
can i just pick up
ammo as i go over it? do I need a little popup to tell me
when there is ammo/health/whatever available? speaking of
which, I'm playing on "death incarnate" i find myself with
more than enough of everything i need - health, check -
ammo, check - in fact - so much goddam ammo that i should be
able to collect it and sell it to my fellow soldiers
for a few extra bucks! same for health. i should be running
low on both all the time, don't you think?
and, while i am
enjoying the game, (who doesn't enjoy wiping out nazis?),
the ai is, um, not very good. i ran through this one section
because i was under heavy fire and got nailed several times
and they never even followed me. ??? like i said, isn't it
time that games moved on to the next generation? those nazi
bastards should have been hounding me after i bolted past
them. i want something new and exciting! ya - i love the old
style run and gun type fps but in this day and age i want
something more - and i don't mean more freaking cut scenes!
i'm no game developer but i would have to think that with
the technology available today that we could get a sandbox
fps that challenges us, adds something new to the genre and
essentially breaks some new ground in terms of ai and the
environment - shouldn't glass like shatter when you shoot
it? Shouldn't boxes explode if you drop a grenade on them?
Aren't we there yet? where are the realistic environments?
This is 2014 for goodness sake!
you will probably
enjoy the new wolfenstein, but you're not going to get
something new and exciting based on what i've seen so far!
so, i really don't know whether to be happy that it has an
old style feel to it or disappointed that they couldn't keep
that and still add something new to move the genre along.
like i said - just making it so enemy soldiers follow you if
you bolt past them would have been a great start!

provides some good challenge, at the cost of some detailing
and some design choices that may make you want to mouth the
words, "Dick move." It's worth checking out if you've got
some free time this weekend.

zorah chimes in
today with a review of a doom 3 map called "lost facility".
while he didn't seem overly impressed with the difficulty
(he's a very good player), he really seemed to enjoy the map
design itself. click on the pic to check it out.

Today, i decided
to give a 20 year old map a proper review (there were no
review sites in 1994). this map was created while doom was
still in it's infancy!
To that end, I
reviewed "petkillr" which is a really well done map and
worthy of the miniscule amount of space it will take up on
your hard drive! click the pic to download!
