The /newstuff Chronicles #474
cs99cjb on My Soul Trapped in a WIN98 PC: I expected this map to be silly (it was) and quick to review (it wasn't). The concept is inspired, but I found the puzzle-based gameplay frustrating and became completely stuck several times. There are intervals of moderately intense combat in cramped locations, but that wasn't the most challenging aspect. It was only writing this review and my desire to see the next weird location that led me to persevere. (more)

ZDaemon Thursday Night Survival #192 - Slaughterfest 2012 (Part I Revisited)

Hordes, throngs, swarms, zoun... wait, I just had déjà-vu. It's been more than 2 years since we played Slaughterfest 2012, but this time there's a difference: on the last occasion, the server wasn't powerful enough to handle the most intense maps; now we will be given the chance to enjoy the maps in all their carnage splendor. See you there!
