The annual “Best Of Doom”, the Cacoawards, has been announced. You've got twelve pieces of awesome Doom goodness that if you don't keep a keen eye on the Doom community (like me) you need to check out. There's also the Lifetime Achievement Award, Best Gameplay, Mapper of the Year, and a lot of Doom trivia along the way.

So check out the Cacoawards over at DoomWorld!

Warsow 2.0 Released

01 12 15 - 11:50

Warsow, the Qfusion (Quake GPL engine) powered free shooter, released it's 2.0 version. It's got over 150 new features after a year and a half of tests & improvements. Several improvements to note:

  • Most assets now under Creative Commons Share Alike 4.0 License, so no more worries about most of the assets being used in custom content. 
  • Many graphical effects revamped. 
  • Spawn code improved so that in a duel you now spawn as far away as possible from the other player on respawn.

You can download the latest version over at moddb.com.  It comes in Windows, Linux or Mac flavors.  Yum.
