Well, faithful followers of "This week in Doom", here we are in the year 2016. As I have been doing for the majority of the history of Doom's existence, I will continue to bring you new doom wads, new reviews, updated news and much more. This particular page is my modest attempt to keep you abreast of all the current goings on in the Doom community - new Doom wads, new Doom 3 maps, updates on projects, Doom engines and more. Enjoy and Keep on Dooming!

 

==========================================================================================

 

Thanks to "Fonze" for taking up the mantle of responsibility for TWID and doing the research and writing up TWID for us. Also, Thanks to you, the reader(s), and Community, which have kept Doom alive and relevant for all these years. And, thanks to ID Software, without whom, all this could not be possible. Keep on Dooming!

 

My apologies for the late release this week, the files came to me a couple of days late and then I was busy with life, so, you know....

 




 

       This Week in Doom: 03.06.16



It's funny how over the years, most games tend to fade away into memories we reminisce on later, but one game has had the vast staying power that even the games wedged into our fondest memories could never reach; Doom. Doom is over 22 years old now and the community is just as strong as ever, with absolutely no signs of downsizing any time soon. It's very likely that the community will continue to grow for the next 50 years; that's the staying power of Doom. It is a truly special thing and just damn relaxing to play. :)



Well I'm a bit late to the party on this one, but the founder of this site, Bob Larkin, released the second map of his most current set (and the third is almost their too) about two weeks ago. This one is called "Dilemma" and takes the E1M2 mapslot. It is meant to be played in a continuous run after "Claustrophobia." It's a pretty fun map and features 2 different routes to take to finish the level. Fun, solid map; check it out right away if you haven't already! http://www.doomwadstation.net/Dilemma/



Let's check out this week's submissions to the archives, as stated there are 10 this week!



First up we have "No Remorse" by youraverageamir; found here:

remorse.zip



This wad runs in zDoom with the Doom 2 iWad. This wad was likely a first wad, but keep at it man and one day you'll be making some really sweet stuff!

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Next up is a map called "Something Awful" by Bzzrak Ktazzz and can be found here: sthawful.zip



This wad runs in vanilla under the Ultimate Doom iWad. It features a fake exit and extra boxy rooms filled with mobs of enemies that make little sense. Basically, it is its name. Lol. But seriously, keep at it dude...

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Third up this week is a megawad called "Mano Laikas: A road to Gamzatti" by Nicolas Monti, which can be found here:

 manolaik.zip



This megawad runs in vanilla under the Doom 2 iWad.



While I can't say I was a fan of the texturing, this was a pretty fun megawad to play. Give it a shot when you can.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Following that is a DM called "boo" by Aardappel; find it here:

boo2.zip



This DM map runs in any Doom port with the Doom 2 iWad. This map looks nice and seems like it'd make a fun duel map. Grab a buddy and get some frags today!

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Fifth is a wad called "BID2" by Serious_MOod and can be found here:

bid2.zip



This wad contains 2 maps that run in PrBoom+ under the Doom 2 iWad.



What a fun map! This reminds me very much of "Toxxika" by FranckFRAG in that the level of detail was just fantastic, the gameplay was ruthless, and I had fun dying over and over, heh. The second level is really just a "The End" level, but it looks pretty darn cool as well. Definitely give this beast a shot today!

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Next is a wad called "Escape From Castle Hitler" by Aidan Geisler (Luigi2600), which can be found here:

hitlerca.zip



This wad runs in the 31st mapslot of the Doom 2 iWad and was tested in zDoom. This WolfenDoom wad was okay.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Seventh this week is a wad called "newik1" by Memfis; found here:

newik1.zip



That's right, he's back; after a couple months we find out Memfis just couldn't stay away. This wad runs in PrBoom+ (-complevel 2) under the Doom 2 iWad.



For those who have played his maps before, Memfis is pretty reliable for making above average maps. Give this one a shot.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The following wad is called "Hellborg" by Erdem KIRMIZI and can be found here:

hellborg.zip



This wad contains six maps for the Doom 2 iWad to be run in Zandronum.



These maps were very nice looking and a lot of fun to play. They are all big maps, but between the fun gameplay, the nice detailing/texturing, and the well-done lighting you just can't help but feel the need to see what's around the next corner. A bit of switch hunting in here, but never so bad that I didn't know where to go right away. Definitely give these a download right away!



_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The ninth wad this week is called "There and back again." by Muff1n, which can be found here:

taba.zip



Run this wad in GzDoom under the Doom 2 iWad and contains 9 maps. These maps were pretty fun to play and didn't look that bad. They were not that challenging, making them a nice romp.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Our final upload to the archives this week is an update to the mod, "Beautiful Doom (version 6.1.0.0)" by Agent_Ash aka Jekyll Grim Payne aka zer0; find it here: bdoom_61.zip



This mod runs in zDoom or better. Everybody loves Beautiful Doom. Not much more needs to be said aside from the name. The update makes things more vanilla-like, which is an awesome step in the right direction! Download this right now!



Wow; what a Hell of a week for /idgames! Let's see what else we can find around the web.

===============================================================================================================

Starting with DoomWorld, there are a couple sweet wads that have come up!

The first is called "Miasma" by tourniquet!



This map is very big and very awesome; it is an absolute must-play for every Doomer! Absolutely Cacowad material in that its looks make you drool and it's gameplay makes you want to play it again. It's also a pretty massive map coming in at just under 1,000 monsters! Check this map out right now!



Find "Miasma" at its thread here: https://www.doomworld.com/vb/wads-mods/86466-miasma/

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Author Lainos, who created the atmospheric "Comatose" map, has released a new map called "Urotsuki 2: Cargo Cult" which is to be the first of three maps in this set.



This map runs in PrBoom+ (-complevel 2) with .OGG support under the Doom 2 iWad. The level of detail and beauty of this map would be shocking had I not played "Comatose" when that came out. This is certainly one of the best detailed, fun maps there is. With just under 300 monsters it's a nice sized map for that Doom fix you know you need right about now. Download and play this sweet thang right away!



Find the thread here: https://www.doomworld.com/vb/wads-mods/86543-urotsuki-2-cargo-cult/

Over on the zDoom forums Blackgaze has finished his monster pack based on the old game Spellcross. These monsters are pretty cool. Give them a check when you can!

Check it here: http://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=49873&sid=76457e6202b70ec828e820c0bb18f297

SunMadcat released a Map/Room Randomization wad for Zandronum over on their forums. This thing is sweet, so head on over there and see what he's been cooking up!

One Man Doom has three new reviews up! These continue from last week's focus on zrrion.

The first one is a zrrion map called "The Core," which can be found here:

http://onemandoom.blogspot.com/2016/03/the-core-acorewad.html

Next is another zrrion map called "Mouldy Old Void" and can be found here:

http://onemandoom.blogspot.com/2016/03/mouldy-old-void-moldyoldvoidpk3.html

And the final review for the week is about Realm667's Doomja-vu Competition last year, which was won by zrrion with the map "Mouldy Old Void," but featured other fantastic maps such as Sgt. Shivers' "Put Up Your Dukes!" and Xaser's "dead.wire" (among a few others)! Read the review here:

http://onemandoom.blogspot.com/2016/03/realm-667-doomja-vu-competition.html

Fantastic reads here!

Wads In Progress shows a new Tolwyn map in development. It's called "Quarry of Despair" and has a nice-looking screenshot up; check it here: http://wadsinprogress.info/?a=showshot&wad=1796&shot=1

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Oblige webpage has some news! V7 is on the way and the changes sound promising. Check it out here: http://oblige.sourceforge.net/

Doomsday has a new blog titled "Steady progress" up. Work on the Home UI continues. Read it here: http://dengine.net/blog/2016/02/steady-progress/

===============================================================================================================

Andy Olivera continues to update the DooMed Speed Demo Archives week in and week out and he has my total respect for doing so for so long a time. Thanks for your work keeping the speedrunning community alive, Andy! There were 53 demos added just this week! Check out the DSDA here: http://doomedsda.us/

Unfortunately Doom 3 news is sparse, but that just leaves more time for Doom Reborn!
