DWTerminator Reviews Quake II Mission Packs

I never could quite dig in with Quake II as much as I did with the original, but I always thought it was a good game. We are talking about the squeal to my favorite game in the history of video games.

DWTerminator breaks down the two commercial expansions packs for Quake II, which are both available on Steam and regularly go on sale for very cheap.

I don't necessarily agree with all of DWTerminator's points, especially that Quake II was a primarily single player experience, but It was really nice to hear someone break these two packs down who has obviously played them both through.

This video is a little on the old side, originally uploaded in 2012, but this channel is still active and this video earned my subscription. Enjoy!

Check out DWTerminator's channel.


What a time when each strip from a single webcomic warrants it's own post. However, that is the case with my all time favorite webcomic, 'SuperMegaComics'. This weeks strip.. (Weeks? Months? Years? Whatever..) This time it's THE CAT THAT EATS GHOSTS.

Catch all the wonderful deep thoughts at the SuperMegaComics website.

A Little Source Port Goes a Long Way

I spent the last couple mornings before work playing Wolfenstein 3d. Not the new modern games, but the old DOS game that predates DOOM. One of the interesting things about Wolfenstien is that it's just as much a game about navigating confusing maze levels as it is actually shooting things.

I came across a source port called ECWolf that I was able to install into my Steam directory and rename the executable file thus tricking Steam into running it instead of the old fashioned version. This allows me to enjoy the source port experience while still having Steam count my hours.

So what does the source port provide? WASD controls for one thing. I know that prior to Quake and Unreal, mouse and keyboard were not the prevalent choice for FPS controls, but now I find it impossible to go back to how it was before that.

Gaming History: Wolfenstein Enemy Territory

GaminGHD has a new video up about Wolfenstein Enemy Territory. I missed out on all of the Wolfenstein releases after Wolf3d until adulthood, so I found this video really enjoyable, especially since this game is not available on Steam.

Baldur's Gate Promo (1997)

This was an extra which I found on my Ultimate RPG Archives CDs. It was common in those days for publishers to put demos of thier games onto CD-ROMs, but I think this was the first time I ever remember seeing a straight up promo video.

Here is is, a trailer for the up and coming 'Baldur's Gate'. My has BioWare changed.

Gaming Palooza Empire's Memory Lane. RealSports Soccer - Atari 2600

Gaming Palooza Empire takes another dip into the Atari 2600 library. This time into the dark realm of Atari Sports games with Real Sports Soccer.

Sports games can be a rough thing to cover on the Atari. This video manages to save itself from that problem by making the ending all about GPE's cat. Take a look.

GGGManLives: Half-Nuked Duke Nukem Mod for Half-Life!

Half-Nuked is a mod for Half-Life which replaces Gorden Freeman and his arsenal of weapons with Duke Nukem and a complete weapons overhaul. There are no new levels at this point, but I see a lot of potential with this mod. It was just recently covered by none other than GGGManLives. Take a few minutes and check out his video on the subject.

PS2 Multiplayer Party Box

This was shot a couple weeks back right after a meet up with Hemrawc, formerly of The Retro League. I had packed up a cardboard box full of PS1 and PS2 games. Here is what I brought:

SuperMegaComics Has New Strips Up

SuperMegaComics, a long running bizarre satirical web-comic has two new recent strips up after being dormant for a couple of years.

The artist, Johnny Smash, is selling a collection of his old SuperMegaComics in a physical volume which can be found at

SuperMega was a huge inspiration to me in my early years and it was great to see a couple of new strips come out of the website, even if it's probably only to help sell his new book.

GaminGHD Perfectly Encapsulates Computer Gaming Magazines

GaminGHD discusses Romanian gaming magazines he has collected - and written for - in this piece which remembers what was once a huge part of gaming culture.

Finally found games in the wild! Xbox Pickups.

I found these about two weeks ago and I couldn't have been more thrilled. My first true pickups in the wild in years, and my first pick ups (not counting Magfest) since I returned to physical game collecting.

Talkin Nintendo - Desert Commander

This week's Talkin Nintendo is up! This week: Desert Commander. There weren't too many turn based strategy war games on consoles during those days. This was one of them. We have a million now, but in it's day this was a rarity.

Dezm101 Revies: Space Debris (PS1)

Dezm101 released his review of a PAL territory clone of the original Starfox called "Space Debris" for the PS1. I really enjoy old games from around that time set in space like Colony Wars and Jupiter Strike. This was a good informative watch.
