It is that time again…the weekly Netzwerk Terror LAN gathering. I have zipped up four maps to play when the Action period rolls around today. Two of the maps which have been released are fortcave by [CHAOS]Homicide and mxcity by [tBd] NRGizeR. The other two are test maps, which show considerable spunk and promise to make it to the “show”. Those maps are nakatomi by Shadowfire and coverme by Sir Caliber. It will probably be late tomorrow before I get something posted as to how the maps really played.
In other 6th Floor news, I am hopefully going to be getting through more reviews in the coming weeks. These will be the same objective and complete reviews, but without DM or TP comments initially. From what I have found, most people want to check out a map before taking time to download it and realizing they do not like it. For those on cable and DSL, this is no problem, but those the 56k people, like myself it is a bit frustrating. By doing this, you can get a general idea for the map, how it is laid out, how it looks, r_speeds and all the other information I provide on a review. As these maps make it into the NT Clan rotation, I will update each map accordingly and revise the review. This way, you do not have to wait weeks on a review for a hot, new release.
As for interviews, I have three lined up, two confirmed are NRGizeR, who created the aforementioned, mxcity and the_HUNTER, who has created the Lock ‘n Load trilogy and Night Raid. Look for both coming soon. As soon as I get word on the other interview I will let you know who it is.
And as you can tell, it has been a few days since the last update, this is due to a buddy of mine in from Chicago, so we were doing the “tourist” thing the past few days in SoCal. My vacation is upcoming, which means I should be having many updates and new reviews. Oh and one final thing…consider this somewhat important (that’s why it is last), my oswald [at] actionquake.com email is not functioning correctly. If you need to send me something, please address it to sockit [at] loop.com. I am still trying to figure out why the mail server does not like my password. Of course this only happened after I reformatted Windows98SE…gah!
