What Happened To Doomguy's Zig-Zag Hair?

What Happened To Doomguy's Zig-Zag Hair?

I love Doom 2016 a lot. It might be one of my favorite games of all time. But it has a problem. One which seems to be returning in the upcoming Doom Eternal. Where the hell is Doomguy’s sick 90s hair cut?

This important piece of Doom lore was left out in Doom (2016), as spotted by Marphy Black. They create some fantastic videos all about classic PC games like Half-Life. But they also care...

The Week In Games: Rock The Dragon!

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is coming out this week. I only know two things about this game: It comes out soon and it is Dragon Ball Z game. I’ve played some great Dragon Ball Z games and some really, really bad games. I hope this one is good!

This might be one of the best TV show intro songs ever created. It is up there with the X-Men animated show theme and the Buffy theme. As a kid,...

Wait, I Played Dragon Quest Builders 2 And Need To Change My GOTY List

Wait, I Played Dragon Quest Builders 2 And Need To Change My GOTY List

I made a mistake. Last month I wrote up my top ten games of 2019. I still stand by that list. I love those games and Control is still my favorite game of last year. But last week I started playing Dragon Quest Builders 2 and I need to change my list. I need to add DQB2.

Look, sometimes you get busy and put stuff off. I played a lot of games in 2019, but I also held off on other games for...

20 Years Ago, Mission Hill Had A Perfect Video Game Episode

20 Years Ago, Mission Hill Had A Perfect Video Game Episode

Video games appear in TV shows and movies all the time. Usually, they are just small background elements. A character playing a shooter on their PC or someone tapping away on a mobile game in an elevator scene. And often when they do play a bigger role in the plot, it’s handled poorly. However, 20 years ago the series Mission Hill handled a video game storyline perfectly.

Recently, one of the...

Indigo Prophecy Has One Of The Best Opening Levels Ever Made

Indigo Prophecy Has One Of The Best Opening Levels Ever Made

I know all of you, or at least most of you, folks reading this don’t want to murder someone. But I also know most people think about how they would get away with a crime, like murder, every once and a while. Luckily, we rarely need to wiggle our way out of a murder, so we never get to use any of those theories or wild ideas.

Though if you ever play Indigo Prophecy, also known as Fahrenheit in...

Star Wars Games Don't Always Need To Include Jedi

Star Wars Games Don't Always Need To Include Jedi

Star Wars is a large universe with thousands of characters, planets, ships, and aliens. And yet, again and again, most Star Wars games seem to focus on or include one part of the franchise. The Jedi. Those wild space monks with lightsabers and force powers. I love a good Jedi game as much as any other Star Wars fan, but I’m also ready to play new games that don’t include these people and...
