About Me:

My name's Rob. I'm insane, but not in a criminal way. At least, not yet. Take the character of Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, make him older and chubbier...and you pretty much know all you need to know about me.


More DOOMing stuff.
August 13, 2008

I watched TV last night. Baseball and then the Olympics for a bit. Because of that, I got a decent amount of DOOMing in, as I hate just sitting and watching the tube when I can be doing something else at the same time.

So, here's what went down in ICARUS:

The letter "W" has been Overdrived!
August 09, 2008

W = Word Zapper

In my current mission to shit out Atari 2600 reviews like Taco Bell burritos, I give you this little gem. And yes, my folks really did buy me this game to give me something "educational" to play. Goes to show that no one's infallible.

Oh, and here's two more level recaps for Icarus (Doom megawad I'm currently playing).

6. P.E.T. Rescue nice design, as you can see the exit from where you start, but you have to go inside a structure and out another door to actually get to it. As for the level, itself......very short, very easy, very forgettable. 4/10

Another Atari 2600 Flashback Moment
August 07, 2008

Swordquest: Fireworld

You know, last year during the team tournament, one of the judges remarked about how it's kind of old and uninspiring for writers to simply pick out bad old NES games and bash them because, in essence, it's too easy. So I'm raising the bar and bashing bad old Atari 2600 games. Because it's even more easy.

Oh, that's right. I did tell Blu I'd be putting up more Doom progress from Icarus. So here's two more level recaps!

Another review
August 06, 2008

Chase the Chuckwagon

I'm still binging on reviewing all the Atari 2600 games I own (even the ones I don't really remember well at all, like the next one I tackle.....so get prepared for a deluge of factual errors!), so I decided to hit up one of the most memorable.

YOU CAN'T KEEP ME DOWN!!!!
July 31, 2008

J = Journey Escape

Look at that! I looked at my list, picked a letter I hadn't done and cranked out another Atari 2600 review! For one of the all-time greats, too! Who's laughing now?

LAUGH AT MY STUPIDITY
July 31, 2008

Keystone Kapers

So, I did a super-quick Atari 2600 review with an ear-to-ear grin on my face because I was going to get a quick, cheap letter in the Alpha Marathon. And then I went to the AM thread and saw I'd already done a "K" review earlier in the year.

I hate myself.....

Blame Blu.....not me!
July 30, 2008

So, for the Emp and Boo Hatred tournament, they gave me a Doom wad to play. The main effect that's had on my life is that is reawoke that sporadic off-n-on Doom addiction I have. So, I've been working through Icarus (done by Team TnT, who did 1/2 of Final Doom; the Evilution half) and Memento Mori (an "all-star" collection of designers coming together to make one of the all-time greats in the eyes of many).

And, luckily for you, I'll be updating you on my gameplay until I eventually lose interest in Doom games again! So, with three levels of each done, here you go:
