There's a really interesting rumor going on right now. It seems like at one point back in 2008, Croteam were originally in charge of one of many itinerations of Doom 4, and some enemies and elements from Serious Sam 3 are not tributes, but are actually leftovers of said project. Thoughts?

That is…a really wild claim, actually.

Here’s the characters in question.

The Khnum

The Scrapjack

Both of these look very similar to the Baron of Hell/Hell Knight and the Mancubus, respectively. Even the filename of the image for the Khnum read “Baron3.jpg” when I got it.

If true, then it is quite an interesting bit of trivia. All that is left for Croteam is to confirm/deny these rumors.


A Tribute to Ty Halderman

Doom II - 2016 - by Michael Jan Krizik aka “valkiriforce”

Some Doom authors decided to tribute Ty Halderman, who passed away in 2015, as part of THT: Threnody. valkiriforce went it on his own, though, and made his own level, taking the place of Halderman’s own “Starhenge” in Icarus: Alien Vanguard. It’s also sort of a composite of homages to several of Halderman’s own levels, including but not limited to “Starhenge”. Maybe it’ll be a walk down memory lane if you’re familiar with the material, or maybe it’ll convince you to finally give those blamed TNT megaWADs a shot. All I know for sure is that Ty is missed.



This is every color Gameboy Pocket ever made.

Some of these are extremely limited. The Atlus Gameboy for example, was given to employees of game developer Atlus in 1997. Less than 150 of them were ever made. Also, there were only 2,000 glow in the dark Gameboys ever made and they could only be won through a drawing.
