Quake is in Shamble(r)s!

08 02 16 - 16:17

Hey, over at Func_Msgboard there's a new Shambler model for the good old classic, Quake. It sure is purty and if you're a Quake fan I'm not seeing a reason to not have a higher poly model for that classic monster! From what I've read, it even works with WinQuake!

Game HacKeR's been posting some WIP map shots of his Doom 3 mod Doom Reborn over on No blurbs, just map shots. If you're curious about how some mappers work, here's a chance to check it out.

E2M3 Development E2M3 Development E2M3 Development E2M3 Development E2M3 Development

Doom Reborn's basic goal is to recreate the original Doom and Doom 2 in the idTech4 engine with all the engine eye candy ID Software has provided us with so we can recreate the game for a classic Doom player to remember and enjoy the memories of the classics in a modernized way, but keeping the old Doom spirit well in the game. We hope that you enjoy playing Doom Reborn as much as we have enjoyed making it for you, Have Fun!

Simple as that.  They're looking for your opinion.  I'm of the opinion “YES” but there's more then just me out there.  So head over to and let your opinion be known!

E1M8 Release by John Romero

17 01 16 - 21:27

You heard that right. Game HacKeR sent me an e-mail saying John Romero released a new Doom maps to replace E1M8. I haven't gotten to play through yet (because I want to play through the whole campaign vs the single map) but I got a couple screenshots for you. 

You can download it from the DoomReborn site.

Codename: DOOM Promo shot

Got in my e-mail last night a shot from the yet un-announced Doom 3 mod “Codename: Doom”. It's showing the Doom 3 Cacodemon vs the mod's Cacodemon. Pretty slick! That's all the info I got so enjoy the picture!


The Level Design of Doom (4)

12 01 16 - 01:55


Saw on twitter today a Game Informer video interview about the level design behind Doom. It's rather short (~3 minutes) but if you're like me and not seeing much so you can go “wow” when the game comes out, it doesn't spoil anything. So, head over to Game Informer and enjoy!
