I’m gonna sing the Doom song

Saturday, October 2nd, 2010

As previously mentioned, here at the Next Era Network, we keep a close eye on any developments related to the classic Mega Man franchise, because, hey, that’s what we grew up with and the reason we are what we are today.

So there was things. Granted, there was never a post about Mega Man 10, but let’s forget about that for a second.

Now, if you’re not a damn kid that should get off my lawn, you know about Doom. And if you’re on this site, you know about Mega Man.

Now mix.

And you get Mega Man 8-Bit Deathmatch. A Doom Megawad, built around Deathmatch, containing what appears to be ALL the weapons from the robot masters of the first six games in the classic series, and of course Mega Buster, plus special Blues and Forte busters, Mirror Buster, Sakugarne (or however you spell that shit), Screw Crusher and Ballade Cracker. The stages look fantastic, it’s an amazing rendition of Mega Man graphics in a 3D environment. I haven’t played it yet, but am intending to try it. Trailers are on the site. Full game’s not out yet, but a downloadable demo which can be played with a sourceport such as Skulltag (I personally prefer zDoom for normal playing, but Skulltag is better for multiplayer).

So yeah.

Doom doom doom doom doom.


Doomy dooms of doom.

Also, doom.

This is why Kenny isn’t part of the artist squad

Alright, this was something that actually took place over a month ago, but I thought some of you readers might get a chuckle out of this.

There’s this one community I’m a part of, and there, we sometimes do something called “Coral Mayhem”, which consists of looking at weird or shitty pictures and giving insightful commentary on them. Back in August and September, I hosted two of them – which were entirely about art I had personally produced in fourth, fifth and sixth grade. And the second one of them had a subject matter which is relevant to your interests. Yes, that’s right, Mega Man. I even brought in our very own Lief as a guest commentator, though he’s not part of that community.

Warning for a bit of language and horrible art you will never be able to unsee also clicking around in the Coral Mayhem subforum will make you want to stab your eyes out

(the first part is here. It’s arguably even worse.)

And this, kids, is why you shouldn’t let Kenny near… well, anything, really.

I apologize for any physical harm these images may cause you. No, wait, I don’t.
