Let’s Play Commander Keen 10: Mirror Menace

Mirror Menace, also known as Keen 10 is the first episode of the Dimensional Chaos trilogy that follows Keen 9: Battle of the Brains. It’s the first Keen 6 mod made by Szemigi . The story continues where Battle of the Brains left off. After saving the universe from Mortimer McMire Keen made his way back to home with his friends. They were flying when Lt. Barker told Keen a blue vortex is coming behind them. Unfortunately, it sucked them in and after a short landing they founded themselves on a planet that’s similar to Shikadus I.

Let’s Play Commander Keen’s Valentine’s Bash

It is the eve of Valentine’s Day and all is not well. Keen’s best friend, Johnny Dash, has been struck lovesick, another victim of the pernicious holiday! That evening, after an exhausting few hours of work in his backyard clubhouse, Keen receives an ominous message from a mysterious source. The evil Count Chuck has risen once again to afflict the world, and this time Johnny Dash is under his spell! Only Keen stands between earth and the undead hordes. Supplied with a magic slingshot and his wits, Keen must do battle with the unholy armies of the Count to save his town, the world, his friend and even… Valentine’s Day

update – Diablo II: The Abyss v 1.2

The files have been up for testing for a couple weeks now and everything seems to be working in this massive update. The Abyss can now be installed via setup and has a launcher built in so that the original, unmodded version of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction can be run at any time (including a version of the launcher for use with D2MultiRes.)

The change in version number format is to reflect the version of the launcher program.

The following changes in the game have been implemented:

	New background screen for TCP/IP game menu that I found in the game's files
	New Loading Screen based on some Diablo 3 art of Rakanishu or something.
	New Amazon skill: Quickness
	New sound for manipulating Arcane Runes in the inventory
	Bone wands/Grave wands and their counterparts are now correctly flagged as 'bone' type items
	Map Changes - The following areas have been renovated
		Act 1
			Rogue Encampment (modified from Demon666's plugin; thanks Demon666!)
			Cold Plains - Bishbosh's Camp (thanks ShamanKing!)
		Act 2 - Lut Golein (modified from Caela's plugin; thanks Caela!)
		Act 3 - Kurast Docks (thanks dyze!)
		Act 4 - Pandemonium Fortress (modified from ShamanKing's plugin; thanks ShamanKing!)

Blizzard is currently working on Diablo II Patch 1.13. I’m not sure if the mod will be compatible with it or will require my attention once the patch goes live. All this means is this will be the last content update for the mod until Patch 1.13 is released. More information on Patch 1.13 is available on Blizzard’s forums.
