Is it still available to play online? I'd assume a classic like this still has servers of some sort lying around somewhere.

Not sure about PC...you can play the Xbox Live Arcade port online I think though.

The Xbox Live version is pretty much dead online wise. My brother has it and has yet to be able to connect to anybody else playing it in the few months he's been trying.

That's a problem with a lot of Xbox Live enabled games....online play works like a charm but actually finding someone else to play against is a different matter. I'd love to play a Quake 2 deathmatch on Xbox Live (it's on a free bonus disc with Quake 4) but I can't see that ever happening (nobody else plays it) :(

I'd like to play Warmonger for the PC with real players. It's a heck of a game. It's free. But I guess hardly anybody knows about it. :( The computer controlled character's AI is so good that it's hard not to think of them as real players even when you know the truth. :?

Hey Elgin, check out Zdaemon:

http://www.zdaemon.org/

It's a variant of the Zdoom engine, all you'll need is a copy of the Doom.wad, Doom2.wad, tnt.wad or plutonia.wad to play it. There are tons of maps available for download and there are quite a lot of activ players too.

looks interesting. Ive got a copy of ultimate doom around somewhere. I know I've got Doom II in the attic but I think it's on 3 1/2 inch floppy.

Maybe we should organise regular gaming nights so we can arrange to be online at the same time and with the same game.

I love love love Doom! I usually only play on the GBM on the toilet now though! But I wouldn't mind getting to a few second hand shops, getting a few cheap PS1s and link cables, the Doom discs and having a little Doom central party at home :lol: They're so cheap to get now it's in the plans for a winter weekend

I'd like to play some DOOM so I'll add your tag next time I'm on harlequin. I have to warn you though I'm immense at this game. Immensely bad! :lol: I'd try to make some regular gaming sessions too if it was a night I could make.
