A New Shingle?

One of the things I had intended to do here on the blog when it was dedicated solely to Classic Doom was to occasionally review PWADs both past and present, providing some screenshots (or even videos) from the levels and my opinions of the works. I would still like to do so, but recently I became distracted by my own works-in-progress and the public opinions of them thus the blog took a bit of a different direction. Besides, I'm not ashamed to admit that I think KMX E XII does far better reviews than I in the DOOMED blog which are just as deserving of readers.

In the meantime, I decided that I'm going to continue to participate in the Doom community (whether they want me there or not) and submitted a pair of map reviews to DoomWorld's Newstuff Chronicles which (a bit to my surprise) were approved for publishing in the latest edition of Newstuff. So far no one has chimed in with any objections to my participation, so maybe I've finally found a niche there.

The only drawback to that is, as its name implies, the Newstuff Chronicles is restricted to reviews of content recently added to the id Games Archives. I still have a ton of older Classic Doom content that I want to share with my readers, so all I can do is ask for patience. If all goes well, I might actually get back to posting about some other video games here as well.

  1. Thank you for your kind words. The reviewing scene isn't nearly as vibrant as it used to be so it's always good to hear another voice. I'm thankful for the Newstuff institution but the more the merrier, in my opinion.
