The /newstuff Chronicles #465
scifista42 on Brutalist Doom: The description of the file tells you about the principles of "brutalist" architecture and how it's supposed to be emulated in the wad. It sounds convincing, and indeed, the wad does just what it claims to be doing. And anyway, it turns out feeling like a jokewad of sorts. (more)

Realm667 needs your help!

The long version of events can be found here, but the tl;dr version is that Realm667 has been hacked one too many times, and if Tormentor can't get together enough cash to get an upgrade, both R667 and his business homepage will be closed down. Here's hoping the Doom community can scrape together enough money to help out.
