Coming soon as an actual book you can buy The Bonerquest. Hopefully you'll buy a copy when I'm done with it.

Will you accept The Bonerquest?



Zombies Ate My Neighbors is the best game ever.

Read fun articles Josh (Charlie) wrote for Tomopop or Nukezilla! Professionalism! Also I did some news for Destructoid. Sort of a real writer!

Check out Josh Hayes, a name Charlie uses for journalism on the internet so that he can say silly personal things without the fear of them being exposed openly. That and to hide from people he knew who he don't want to find him, not no way, not no how.

Twitter, or Tumblr!

Doom troopers has one of the coolest titles ever. That title tells you flat out what you can expect from a game like this. Take a second to think about it. Anything associated with doom is generally of an evil and violent nature. Troopers generally refers to a military organization, so using deductive reasoning we can assume violence and military operations?





I don't think I've played a 16-bit game with the level of gore of Doom Troopers.

I found this game years ago. Never played it much. Just a basic run and gun shooter. A button slaps guys with your weapon, B button shoots, and C jumps. I never spent much time with it, but for some reason I saw it and thought I'd do a write up about it.



The main selling factor of this game is the sheer glory of 16-bit violence. I don't think I've seen more hilarious gore. One of my favorite things is shooting a guy until his head pops off. Whats hilarious is that sometimes doesn't kill the guy. The bad guys can still shoot their gun headless. Isn't that awesome? Another cool scene I saw was these knife guys flopping around bleeding everywhere. He has his little seizure until he explodes completely. I was not quick enough to get a screen shot, but use your imagination.



What else can I say? I'm on level two right now. Having fun with a quick shooter. Nothing really amazing here, but a fun enough game you might not have heard of. Exactly the type of game my old school series of articles is intended for. I just wish Doom Troopers had a LITTLE more substance to it, but really with dead bodies flopping around who wants more substance? Towards the end of the first level you have to create a bridge of dead bodies by shooting guys standing in the water. I wish I thought of that.



Here is a boss that I've yet to encounter, but he pukes green slime on to you. This is the type of creativity old school games were known for. I can't help about laugh at all of this stuff.
