About
As one of the oldest members of Dtoid, (I'm already over the big 4-0) I've been gaming since the Atari 2600 was a brand new item, and thousands of my teenage hours were dedicated to gaming on the Commodore 64 and messing around with the new 300-baud modems. (That's .00003 of a megabit per second, for those of you who only know broadband.)

I'm proud to say that I'm a member of the first-generation of gamers, and I still use my PC and each of the three current-gen consoles regularly -- and not for "casual" games. Bring on the hard-core FPS and 3PS! I want to shoot something!

So, I give a big PHUCK YOU!!! to anyone who thinks that video games are for kids! As far as I'm concerned, they haven't been for kids for over 20 years.

GAME ON!

I hate sounding like some kind of a GOG sales rep, but in fairness I did submit this to the D-toid guys this morning. The front page has been pretty busy with other stuff. So, I'm not surprised that they didn't get it posted.

I just got my regular e-mail from the folks at Good Old Games and it turns out they they made a deal with Apogee to get Duke Nuke Em (the original one, not the vaporware one), Rise of the Triad, and Blake Stone! I can't even think about how many hours I burned up playing the original Duke Nuke Em!

No, these obviously don't have ZOMG HD GRAFX, but I don't care. I bought Duke immediately. For $6 and no DRM, f*ck yeah!!! What's funny is that the extras that come with it take up more MB than the game itself!

Since they have Apgoee on board, I hope that Commander Keen is next...
