Well worth the watch for us old timers.
We're old.

Getting DOOM to work on null modem cables and battling it out was fun, but the sights and sounds of Quake will never be matched.
Ha, I did it with parallel cable with ParallelDOOM in college since I didn't have serial null cables except external dial-up modems (also a pain to work at first -- think my neighbor and I had to play at 9600 speed?). Both actually worked.

To me, DOOM was cooler than Quake.

Obviously it is time to fix that, Ant. Hop to it!
Haha, no time to play! I just gamed for about five/5 minutes for the whole weekend with a couple quick MAME games. Now, it is time to catch up with the Internet before tomorrow.

According to my http://zimage.com/~ant/antfarm/about/toys.html history, I haven't done major desktop upgrades since 12/20/2010! Most of the hardwares are still there. I do need to clean them out and change their fans. I am surprised that both boxes still work!

Hope you checked the expiry date, I know someone who drank a really old one and puked for a while after.

I did. Expires 4/1/2017. It's just nasty.
Which flavor and type? I drink the chocolate non-fiber one since I can't eat well (don't chew). I hate its vanilla (started back after my 1984 surgeries) and strawberry flavors.

No Mac version? Bummer, that means I'll have to play it at work.
And Linux. Remember when id Software supported them with Quake games?

You guys want a true Doom feeling sequel, grab yourself a FREE copy of Brutal Doom (provided you have one of the older Doom games on Steam), and enjoy.
It's so damn fast, fluid, gory as hell, and well, it's DOOM. Incredibly addicting due to the modern updated FPS controls and speed at which you mow down hordes of Demons.
If they charged for it, I would of happily paid.
I am waiting for Doomsday Engine to get Brutal. I can't stand sprites anymore!

... At least you have more than one fast affordable ISPS unlike in my areas. I could go back to dial-up.
