Suspended from Twitter

UPDATE JUN 22: It’s now two weeks later.  Nothing’s changed since I wrote this on Jun 15th. A week ago (Jun 8, 2015) I was suspended from Twitter.  I’m a bit miffed about that.  Let me explain why.

Happy 20th, Rise of the Triad!

I moved from Pennsylvania to Texas in December of 1992.  I took a job with 3D Realms (then just called Apogee Software).  I left a company of 70,000 to come work for a videogame company in Garland of around 20 or so (most of that was order takers at the time).    I stayed there from […]

Classic Doctor Who back on air in USA

I’ve had a TiVo for a long time (14 years), and one of the cooler features is that the service learns what you like, and will record other programs besides the ones you tell it to, thinking you’ll like them. So tonight I’m looking through the recorded shows, I found an episode of “Doctor Who”. […]

Life Itself

I just got done watching the movie “Life Itself”, which is the movie based on the life (and the book) of Roger Ebert. This is a movie that is participating in what I think a new thing is where you can rent movies from PPV while they’re still in theatres. It is a hard movie […]

ROTT Video Capture #1 [ UPDATED ]

Rise of the Triad is a game I really loved working on. Well, the original one, I didn’t work on the newer Interceptor version.   ROTT was by far my personal highlight of my 20 years working in the videogame industry.   Not only was I a mapper in the game, I was a character […]
