Game Curious Brutal Doom v20 – Giddy with Gore

The Doom mod community is ridiculous. Best encapsulated by the fact that there are now 20 versions of Brutal Doom which is the only recent mod I’ve played and therefore my favorite. The addition of death throes, dismemberments, modern weapons, and modern FPS controls make Doom feel like new again. So much fun my face… Continue reading

Just Playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Jenny O’ the Woods

Monster contracts have been my favorite quests so far in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Mainly because I just want an excuse to explore the world and discover something new.

I’m not sure I knew what a computer was when I saw one awkwardly sitting on a card table in our family room. My dad was tinkering with it. Turning it on, turning it off, turning it back on. I saw him clicking on a lot of buttons as letters showed up on the screen. I… Continue reading

Game Curious Wolfenstein: The Old Blood – All I Need is Pipe

What a difference a year makes. I wasn’t sure I wanted more Wolfenstein last year, but now I can’t get enough. The Old Blood takes ol’ Willy Blazko back to his roots, er, cell in Castle Wolfenstein. There’s only one thing to do and we’re gonna take as many Nazi corpses with us as we… Continue reading

Arcade Challenge Report – Jungler

A bunch of snakes got stuck in a Pac-Man maze and started shooting at each other’s butts. Jungler was released by Konami in 1981. “The player controls a snake-like ship moving around a number of mazes chasing three similar computer controlled ships. Being hit by bullets reduces the length of the ships. Ships are destroyed either when… Continue reading
