It's the Thirty First and we have a new release of Brutal Doom! If you don't know what Brutal Doom is, it's an over-the-top weapon/gore/sound enhancement for Doom 1/2/Final/Ultimate. Check out the trailers for some awesome video of it in action. You need GZ or Zdoom (or something based of them) to run it. For more info on how to install, check out the FAQ.
If you want to watch some awesome trailers, click “Read More”. You can download it from moddb.com while you're watching too. Want the soundtrack too? That's for download. A pack of mutators? He's got that covered too! It's like a modern game's DLC & bonus features, all at once, for FREE!
UPDATE: Can't belive it, in the time I went to post this there's some more stuff for you do download and enjoy! You can also get Brutal Doom Lite, the mod but compatible with some other mods (you do loose some features though), and you can get the DoomNukem BrutalDoom Pack that reaplces some of the weapons. Awesome!

The known russian player Polo shows an old match in this VOD, with him and his new commentary. The duelmatch is from CPL Cologne tournament in 2000. His opponent was the swede Lakerman. The video has been great for many reasons. In it Polo explains the background and the time very well, tactical descisions, and last but not least he does a funny commentary (esreality).

Blendo Games has been doing some live(?) feed of Quadrilateral Cowboy development! If you've always wanted to see the excitement that goes in to making a game, here's your chance! Get to see:
I'm being sarcastic here, that stuff really isn't exciting, but it if worth seeing how much tediousness, hard work and persistance goes in to games. Most gamers think it's a glorious job filled with amazinness. Now, just imagine a huge studio with hundreds of people doing this on a daily basis!
Click “Read More” to watch the youtube videos. You can find a little more info about Quadrilateral Cowboy on it's website (or twitter or facebook) and in the interview a couple weeks ago right here on EarthQuake.

The Doom 3 GPL powered game Quadrilateral Cowboy by Blendo Games (whom I interviewed last week) posted a new trailer from Indiecade. According to the trailer, the game is about CPUs, acoustic couplers, power saws, multilinear subspace coprocessors, worka holism, instant Ramen (never ate the stuff myself), cute robots, hacking, syntax, and a lot of typing. Looks pretty cool! Check out the trailer by clicking “Read More”.

That's right kiddies, the famed “The Dark Mod” is now 100% standalone from Doom 3! What does this mean? You don't need Doom 3 any more to play it. How do you get this awesome standalone indie Doom 3 GPL based stealth game? It looks like you use their updater to download the latest version. I'm not 100% sure if you can just update your Doom 3 install so you don't have to redownload everything again, keep an eye on the Doom3World thread about it.
If you don't know, The Dark Mod is a Thief-like mod/game based on the Doom 3 engine. If you're a fan of Thief you'll like this. Click “Read More” to see the whole press release.
