The sequel to Full Moon follows roughly the same pattern as the original, except this time with no 1000+ monsters maps. The wad is still a wild combination of 1-hour speedmaps with mostly low monster counts and a few slaughter(-ish) maps throw in. That of course means starting with -fast monsters, 2x damage and pistol starts and a crazy ride guaranteed!

If last week's dose of nostalgia was not enough here comes another batch. There's not much different from the first half of the wad - monster counts stay about the same and fairly relaxing old school gameplay accompanies a more modern yet old school-esque design of the maps.

And of course, boom_compatible's coop/TNS fix gets to shine again!

Nostalgia is a recently released megawad by myolden, the author of Altars of Madness we played just 3 weeks ago. While the design of the maps is more modern than the name might suggest, the gameplay and texturing will make any fan of old school Doom feel right at home!

Also, we get to enjoy this mapset without major setbacks even in our total randomization mode thanks to the extensive coopfix (or tnsfix, rather) by... yes, boom_compatible again!

Finishing up our adventure with 3 textures, 3 flats, 3 monster types and 3-minute join limit on every map. First half of the wad had an abundance of coop issues and what do you know... it's the exact opposite for he second half, perhaps just some admin mercy for MAP25 which is almost completely dark and we're good to go!

3x3 is a community project in which besides a select few universally allowed textures and flats every map uses only 3 of each - textures, flats and monster types. This of course led to creative solutions in both esthetics and gameplay and a few wacky texturing experiments. Creativity from limitations at its best, I hope that sounds intriguing!
