Descent: The Forgotten Classic

9 09 2009

Found this article on the game, Descent. This game was a pioneering first person  imageshooter that gave you complete three dimensional movement. I used to play the crap out of this game against my uncle on Microsoft’s Gaming Zone (Pre- Live service).

Still playable if you know how to use DOSBOX, and you might be lucky to find the version released for the original Playstation (though it pales in comparison to the PC versions).

Awesome gem and a great article!


Robokill – Rock Solid Arcade

16 06 2008


I was stumbling around the ‘Net again just now when I found this game. It’s a cool shooter done in flash that reminds me in a little of cross between the Williams classic arcade game Robotron and Expendable in the Dreamcast. Playing right in your browser, the controls are very easy: a combination of keyboard to move and mouse to aim and shoot. Any casual gamer will have used these controls before on countless other shooters and those new to gaming would probably pick up quite easily.
