doom-II

Finally got it!!

Had ths idea on my mind for many years that this door texture from DOOM would make a killer tattoo idea. I got a friend who’s really good with skulls n demons n traditional stuff to re-draw it in his style and the end result is something I am super happy with! Heavily inspired but not a 1:1 exact copy.

PSYCHED!!

holy shit, when’s the last time I did a stream? When’s the last time I did a Budget Shooter Theater stream??? Feels like forever.

So, before I give the announcement, I’m putting down some new rules. Well, new rules that really only apply to me.

Instead of playing a single game per stream, I’ll be trying to play multiple games per stream. I’ll play a game for an hour or so before I move onto the next game. This doesn’t mean I’m gonna be abandoning games, but I will be juggling more games per stream for maximum variety and viewing consumption. (I’m going to assume VODs that are an hour or less might have people stick around longer, idk I’m not a statistician)

This probably won’t really apply until the next BST stream, we’ll see how it shakes out.

So! Tomorrow, April 28, at 1PM PDT (4PM EDT), I’ll be (hopefully) finishing Serious Sam: The Second Encounter. Regardless if I finish it, I’ll finally get to Doom II: Hell on Earth, requested by someone like way back in December jesus christ I am so sorry for slacking on these.

Be there, aloha. And chastise me if I somehow break this promise.

When I saw the full body icon of sin made by Sgt. Mark, I thought it looked ugly, and didn’t match the original art style. Here’s my own full body icon of sin, attempting to stick to the original style of Doom monsters.

There’s actually an interesting story behind this easter egg.

Adrian Carmack, the artist for DOOM, also did all of the art for Commander Keen. However, he hated Commander Keen, and he wasn’t to fond of Tom Hall, Keen’s creator.

Here’s an Excerpt from Masters of Doom:

It would later be confirmed by John Romero that Adrian was the one who put the dead keens in the game, because he never wanted to do another keen game.

Anyway, hope you learned something new.
