Doom Movie

Thursday, February 9th, 2006

So I picked up the Doom movie on Tuesday. I had yet to see it and I had heard that it wasn’t so great, but I still had to have it. I went in with low expectations of what I was going to see and was rather surprised that it didn’t suck that bad. […]

Wednesday, February 8th, 2006

Shout out to Jonic over at Re-Retro. He forwarded this interesting link to me.

Most Overrated games

Thursday, February 2nd, 2006

As any reader who follows this blog regularly knows. I don’t like hype. So many games get an extraordinary amount and then they just fail to be anything. I mean sure. Nothing can live up to the hype it gets, but a lot of games can’t live up to just being good. I recently saw […]

Upcoming FPS games for 2006

Tuesday, January 31st, 2006

Or rather, to write about a popular genre.
I was never popular.

Anyways IGN has a list of upcoming FPS games for 2006. It’s not a huge list but it definitely highlights a few of the big up and […]

So hi-res your eyes will bleed

Tuesday, January 17th, 2006

Apparently some folks thought that Half-Life 2 did’t look quite good enough so they developed a mod pack to up everything to a high resolution texture. It also mods it in a variety of other ways. Nothing too substantial from the looks of it though. File front has the link on this one, along with […]
