A new version of Keen Dreams, "Commander Keen in Keen Dreams: Definitive Edition" was released for Nintendo Swtich yesterday, and as usual I'd like to remind you not to buy it since part of the profits benefit the current owner of the ip Javier Chavez who is a nazi.

I collected together Doomworld's Top 100 Most Memorable Maps and started playing through the list, from #100: doomwiki.org/wiki/Top_100_Most
