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.

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

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.

Gaming Palooza Empire has been putting out some really good Atari 2600 content recorded on original hardware lately. Here is Mountain King from CBS games for the Atari, recorded by hooking an Atari Jr model up to a VCR.
