the people i've seen refer to rekkr as kind of like a weird hybrid between doom and a build engine game with no hitscan enemies were definitely spot-on. all the maps have a really charming 'realistic' layout mixed with just a bit of abstract geometry to make it more level-like to run around.

What should happen is that Amid Evil fully releases, and then a few months later DUSK releases, and THEN a few months later Ion Maiden releases, and THEN that System Shock remaster releases a few months after that.

I'm on the final mission of Deus Ex after binging hard on it tonight because I was frustrated about having never finished it. I'm experiencing significant burnout so I'm not exploring that much but like, I'm right at the end what the hell else could I find.

Game good. I'm about to destroy the internet.

Hey anyone know some easy Q3 defrag maps? Looking for stuff like these two Reflex maps

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4X-hkQyx4Rc

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_EnYnjk45Y#t=539s

either just really easy breezy or having multiple routes where the problem is refining to get the fastest speed rather than passing speedchecks/technical rocket/double jumping poo poo etc. Q3 maps I've found so far just have a bunch of poo poo I'm too bad to do yet and I'm not really interested in grinding it out right now, I just wanna feel good and chill flying around colorful void maps. The type I'm looking for seems really common in Reflex steam workshop but Reflex cooks my laptop to the point it's uncomfortable right now so trying to switch over to Defrag.

Kingpin also looked amazing but played like poo poo

Aside from the whole "Attack of the Motherfuckin' Brown Motherfuckers From Motherfuckin' Brown Town". Thought Q1 and Q2 were bad? Kingpin is a whole new level of browny brown brown.

I played through the demo so many times and loved it, just the right amount of grime and grit and nasty environments. I love the retrofuture thing it has going on, almost a Full Throttle vibe.

The full version just doubles down on brown, and has way too many way too powerful hitscan enemies.

Some fun choices there. I guess I need to play those ORL maps now!

One thing that really surprised me is that Forgotten Sepulcher isn't shortlisted for best visuals. It's the world-dominating screenshot-generator map from last year. I wonder if they just didn't want to take up too many nomination slots from one map (although making bigger shortlists would have helped there).

e: Also, I'll mention a few maps I nominated that didn't make the cut. Because I think they should have. :-)

"Best gameplay" is kind of difficult to pin down. I nominated a couple of maps that I thought innovated in really fun ways. However I also nominated Wenl Mine (megad2lvl3) for just excellent old-school combat setups and exploration/routefinding.

I also put Sacrifice Unto Sebek (retrojam6_mukor) in a couple of categories. I don't think it's the *best* map released last year in terms of either visuals or gameplay, but it is quite good at both. Actually retrojam6 in general was a badass release, which might have gotten a little overlooked from being released in January.

In the "oddball maps", I nominated Ruins of the Elder God (jam9_shotro). Cool idea (and good execution) that involves going back and forth through a map where the available areas and routes change in each pass. I know there's a lot of split opinions about this one, but it pushed the envelope.

Look, just sign the stupid petition. I've got stuff to do.


Randomly reading stuff on the Doom wiki about the console versions and exclusive maps for them, come up to the last map of the PS1 port, watch the linked video and it hits me: I've never touched a console port of Doom yet I have played this exact map before. Not surprising, honestly, there's a lot of Doom maps based on other maps in that manner.

The problem is now that I know I've played a version of that map before, I'm already driving myself crazy trying and failing to remember where I did.

Itís been converted to PC a couple times, as a stand-alone and in the lost levels expansion to the Doom64 conversion.

Other than Doom 2016, and the other noted retro inspired games, single-player FPS games have not been that great in recent years. I'm throwing down the gauntlet! We need more stuff like No One Lives Forever, F.E.A.R., what have you, I'm talking early to mid 2000s and whatnot, I'm saying it. Level design with a lot of charm and attention given to it, cool campaigns, fuckin' rad poo poo.

I know I'm a bit out of line here, no offense intended if you were on the dev team for Killzone Shadowfall (you better believe I returned that), and don't tell me wandering around the FarCry 4 map collecting bear asses is an FPS game. I know it is, but it ain't right. It's wrong. It ain't what this genre was founded on, the principles of cool level design and excellent action, it's a far cry from it quite frankly. We gotta wake up these devs! We gotta start an FPS revolution in the streets!

Can keep those games and still start a revolution! I'm thinking we occupy the street outside Ubisoft or some other big publisher, and let them know that some guy wants them to make games kinda like Monolith made for a bit 15-20 years ago. That would be good. I'd put it in google maps and do it myself, but I gather that it's in France, so we need some French goons to get this going. I'll add to the indiegoogo page.

of SA-Mart forever

I discovered Brutal Doom not too long ago and have had a grand time the last some weeks playing through Ultimate Doom, Doom 2, Evilution and Plutonia as well as Hell on Earth, the megaWAD created for Brutal Doom. I know that there is a link to Doomworld in the OP, but there are so many choices here that I'm not sure what I would enjoy. I started to play Plutonia 2, but I'm about 2/3 through it and probably not going to finish it as I'm finding it more difficult than fun. Could anyone suggest from personal experience any large (roughly the length of one of the "official" games) WADs truer to the original games and not frustratingly difficult?

Memento Mori, some Scythe 2, Vanguard, and I'm a big fan of Suspended in Dusk for Ultimate Doom, though a short one. The later maps in a lot of these popular ones (Scythe 2 and Vanguard for example) will be slaughter, but worth checking out the earlier maps either way. And in general, gameplay balance is a crapshoot with mods like BD.

And if you're curious to try the Vanilla gameplay, SmoothDoom is good stuff. I find these maps are best with the Vanilla gameplay myself.

Final Doomer basically hasn't left my load list since I started with it, it's fantastic. I just wish there was more on the horizon, it sounds like it's been put on the back-burner.

Also, I watched WhamNinjaMolehill play AA with LegenDoom and it worked pretty well. Of course, there's been a big LegenDoom update since but it should still, right?

Okay, this is pretty neat in what it does and doesn't do. It doesn't drastically change the formula but instead just provides aesthetically fitting weapons that are tweaked from the original weapons to, well, address one characteristic of Skillsaw maps: the tidal waves of enemies that can appear and the very long combat encounters that have very little breathing room. But the weapons are not beefed up to completely minimize this aspect of the map designs, they're instead made to increase the tempo of the fights juuuust a tad, just enough to prevent potential exhaustion after the occasional grueling moment.

I see that he also made a loadout for Return to Saturn X, so I guess I'll go check that wad out again as well.

What does "not work" mean in this case? What does it do when you try to run it?

If you just want a launcher frontend (rather than also a browser/downloader) you can try Simple Quake Launcher 2.

Yes.

The BTSX loadout is probably the weirdest of all of them. The chainsaw replacement, iirc, gives you a damage shield in exchange for health + modifies all the weapons in some fashion, I think. Especially neat, because of how quickly you can grab it in the BTSX maps.

Darox

You can't kill what's already dead


It makes all your weapons overpowered (some more than others) but turns off if you lose more than 25% of the health you had when you activated it.

The BTSX loadout is neat in that you don't have a proper super shotgun (It's an incredibly powerful basically-melee weapon instead) and the rocket launcher has no friendly fire so it changes how you look at weapons; the regular shotgun in particular gets a lot more action. The plasma weapons are straight up OP so that's also fun. The BFG replacement can kill multiple cyberdemons with a single shot no problem and the plasma rifle minces everything you look at. The only downside is that they devour ammo.
