Re: The DOOM Thread

I guess I was just talking about it on another forum weeks back. Romero was even streaming some of the levels and stuff on Twitch off and on. You might want to keep an eye on his twitter. Honestly if you message him there maybe he'll get back to you. The maps are still going to be free, it's just all the extras for somewhat of a collectors edition that he's selling. Apparently Buckethead is the doing the music too.

He also made a new map in 2016 which was cool:

But yeah I'm stoked for a full sized episode!

Yeah, that's the reason Doom needs to win the TR poll.

I guess I just kind of assumed someone else already posted about Sigil so I apologize for not raising the alert.

I'm definitely stoked to play it. Romero's levels in Ultimate Doom and Doom 2 are some of my favorites from the classic IWADs and of course he made most of "Knee Deep in the Dead" which is one of the most iconic sets of levels in gaming. His recent re-imaginings of E1M4 and E1M8 were both a ton of fun so I'm confident he hasn't lost his stride.

Romero said on the stream that after the cut off for pre-orders on December 24th that would be it for physical editions unfortunately. Ebay will be the only place to find them for an arm and a leg.

I heard the release was delayed. Romero's website still says February 2019. Anyone hear about any updates?

Limited Run had production problems and are expecting to ship sometime in April. Romero doesn't want to release the free WAD until the people who paid have their copies.
