First Post! January 29, 2020 - Duke3D.exe Day

Hail to the First Post, Baby! Let's get to it.


Hey Shacknews, it's time for First Post and it is Duke3D.exe Day! Let's officially kick off our day of posting. Please take a look.

Hail to the King, Baby!

Duke3D.exe shareware launched on this day in 1996. The game went on to change FPS design forever and is still heralded as one of the best games by dognose, CrustaR, freakynipples69, and my good buddy Duke Nuked.

New Squarepusher music video and song!

Yes, have some. Thanks to hatelull for bringing this to my attention with their Shacknews Chatty thread.

More Smash Ultimate community reaction to Byleth and the 7.0.0 patch

Zero is hype for Byleth and the Palutena nerfs have some players very worried.

Not Dabuz. He is still confident in Palutena.

Dabuz also opined on some of the other nerfs.

Samsora might be dumping Peach.

ESAM is stoked about Byleth.

It's a he, Mario!

      I love how timeless Duke3D is. It's still as fun now as it was when it was released and most of the ports are still fun and interesting to this day. The colored lighting and true 3d engine of the Saturn version, the original episode and soundtrack of the PS1 version, the uniquely altered N64 release, the new World Tour episode, and everything inbetween. It's just a blast to play and, thanks to its design, works beautifully with a gamepad. Really, the only port of the game that I didn't like was the release, and even then "port" isn't really accurate so much as "that game with the same name and same level names but plays nothing like it".
