The team over at Hardcore Gaming 101 have just released the 158 page compendium for the Castlevania series. This is THE book for Castlevania fans on your holiday shopping list, and it is available on Amazon (both print and Kindle editions).
The headline is not misleading in any way. A modder by the name of “DooMero” has used the Doom engine, specifically the GZDooM hack, to recreate Donkey Kong Country in a 2.5D side scrolling platformer. The results are quite interesting to say the least.

Sadly, in recent years we have not been lucky enough to get a Gauntlet game though the Diablo series really hearkened back to those days of […]
It is pretty much accepted fact that Nintendo’s censorship policy literally gave the Sega Genesis a slight upper hand when the original Mortal Kombat was released on home consoles. Acclaim was between a rock and a hard place as far as the Super Nintendo version of the bloody brawler was concerned. History shows they went […]
