The /newstuff Chronicles #468
Zalewa on Exitway: A medium-sized, classic Doom 2 level with good gameplay. ... There's a small twist to the classic gameplay, as you're being stalked by a cyberdemon almost throughout the entire map. It teleports in several times, shoots some rockets at you, and then teleports away. This is really well done as these short encounters are threatening enough to do some damage, but not too out of the blue to cause forced reloads from a saved game due to sudden and unexpected death.

New Doom 2 Speedrun Record

In speedrunning circles, few accomplishments are more prestigious than owning the world record for fastest speedrun of a whole game. As Doom inspired the very first online speedrunning community, any Doom speedrunner who can claim such a record must find it doubly so. The Doom 2 speedrunning record fell in dribs and drabs over many years, first dipping below 30 minutes in 1999, to below 29 minutes in 2001, to sub-27 in 2003. A record of 26:09 was set by Radek Pecka in late 2003, and stood unbroken for seven years, before being smashed by Looper in 2010, who dropped the record all the way down to 23:25. Now, after four years, relative newcomer Zero-Master has broken the record with a new single-segment Doom 2 UV speedrun in 23:03. Could sub-23 be far away? Just how much more improvement can be wrung out of the routes? Only time will tell.

A download link for the demo can be found on the COMPET-N website, and discussion of it can be found on the Doomworld forums. Zero-Master has also uploaded a Youtube video of the demo, for those who feel like using a few orders of magnitude more bandwidth to see the action.



Doom Radio - Post Mordeth Episode 1: Plutonia Revisited

Double-surprise! Not only does Doom Radio still exist, but today's "new" episode takes the form of an entirely new segment called Post Mordeth. The broad topic is post-mortem-style discussions of released Doom projects, and our first victim is 2011's Plutonia: Revisited Community Project. Join us as host Xaser interviews leader Joshy and contributors MTrop and dew, but be warned, it weighs in at a whopping 2 hours and 20 minutes. Grab a snack, grab a shotgun, and Go 2 It!
