Introduction (By Tchernobog)

Another year, another battlefield. With the conflict against the spam bots becoming calmer here, I have gotten myself deputized by Willis our generous host and benefactor to wage war against a new threat on the Transfusion Forums. It seems every day there is another encroachment on our territory, with one particular wave creating forty pages of mostly dubious dating and porn links.

While I write this another battle is raging, this time over which Blood port is going to be king of them all. Despite its official backing and recognition Blood: Fresh Supply stumbled badly coming out of the gate, leaving the field wide open for challengers. The venerable BloodGDX has now merged into a wider effort called BuildGDX with full source code access and a classic renderer available now to boot. Not to be underestimated is NBlood, which despite only being released within the past year has already built up a substantial following. With talk of a new EDuke32 release featuring all of the improvements Voidpoint implemented for Ion Fury as well as merging in projects like NBlood to basically make one super engine for all Build engine games, this could very well become the best way to play everything under the sun as far as we are concerned. Night Dive Studios has yet to wave the white flag yet however, and vows that work on their release will continue.

For me personally though the most enjoyable part of the year has been discovering Civvie 11, who himself has quickly become the king of retro shooter coverage on YouTube. When the dusts settles and I can settle on which port to play on I will try my own hand at Pro Blood, although we shall see if my attempt will be anywhere near as valiant as his. Onwards soldiers.
