Almost the entire idiot brigade are having a dirty weekend of drama and faggotry in a disused windmill right now so if anybody wants to, uh, "take care" of them in one fell swoop, now's your chance!
QUOTE OF THE WEEK <Errant> "you can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think"
I am halfway through a lot of WADs right now and haven't finished them so can't review them properly. Here are some of them:
- Community Chest Yeah I thought I'd better play the first one before the second one comes out(!) I'm currently stuck somewhere in map06 (which I seem to recall was about as far as I got last time) with a whole load of cacodemons and no ammunition, in spite of having used savegames to get that far from a scratch start. Not really surprising as map06 is one of the late Magikal's maps which I never could manage (cf Industrial, link)
- Alien Vendetta each map from scratch - on skill 2 and with lots of savegames, obviously. I might do the whole lot as a mission in UV like I've done with Hell Revealed but don't hold your breath. The bits after you've got the keys and gone down the lift in map18 are huge, dark and beautiful, and map 31 has to be seen to be believed.
- Requiem Old classic I still haven't actually finished. Currently held up by map 14 because it's annoyingly low on health and ammunition (am I allowed to say that after elixir?) and 15 for some reason I can't remember offhand
Golgotha is one thing I finished. One map, runs on E1M1, made years and years ago with an obviously buggy BSP nodes builder. Easy, looks awful, no real theme, texture misalignments, the lot. It's kind of cramped and the secrets are crap. Passed fifteen minutes though, I guess. Get it if you're really bored.
EDIT Oh, yeah, Community Chest 2, that's supposed to be out today, I forgot. Well, it's not ready yet. See if they'd only got 10 maps it would have been released but they're only 9 maps or so short so they want to hold off for a bit. It's a bit annoying for everybody who worked hard to get their map done on time but I guess it's better in the long run.
Once again I quite failed to go listen to the wind at a crossroads or do anything else stupid but I found these links on slashdot of a pumpkin cut into a cacodemon and another cacodemon and a spiderdemon. The former looks better but was photoshopped apparently. It's still pretty good and at least better than last year's halloween update which just had a link to goatse.cx
