Time to revive the old YouTube channel again, this time with something more interesting.

I had gotten this PS2 controller at a thrift store a few weeks back, and I thought it was a cool little piece. I decided to grab it, and do a little comparison to the standard DualShock 2 on the PS2. It’s actually a pretty nice controller. Too bad it doesn’t have Scorpion on it. So I thought I’d make a video about it, and the turmoil I went through getting this thing fixed. It went through hell and back, and now it’s found a good home in my hands. At least I won’t spill soda on it.

Also on the YouTube channel: Me documenting the PlayStation Home E3 2013 booth. For anyone who wants some free PlayStation 3 themes or access to things like theย Killzone Mercenary beta, you might wanna check it out. If you redeem the codes, leave a comment telling me. I like to be charitable sometimes. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love Doom. The fast-paced action, the creative levels, the large variety of weapons and enemies. It’s no wonder it’s held up as a classic in the first-person shooter genre. In recent times, people have made Doom last longer by way of modding โ€“ changing Doom‘s weapons, levels, even adding stuff never before seen on the Doom engine. Some of these mods, like Alien Vendetta and Doom the Way Id Did, take an existing spin on the tried-and-true formula, while others like Brutal Doom change the game drastically. Those mods are famous and well-known among the Doom community for their good quality. I wish I could say the same thing about the mod I’m featuring: Sonic Doom II: Bots on Mobius.

It’s like I’ve hopped back into 1998! and not in a good way!

Sonic Doom II was the work of one SSNTails, a Sonic the Hedgehog and Project GeeKer fan. (Don’t be surprised if you had to Google search that last one, I don’t remember that show either.) Back then, mashing existing franchises with Doom was pretty common โ€“ there was the Aliens TC for Doom, as well as Batman Doom, made by the guys who would later go on to make Zeno Clash. Naturally, SSNTails decided to mix the speed and fun of Sonic with the run and gun tactics of Doom and see if he could make something truly amazing in the Sonic fan games realm. Unfortunately, he didn’t succeed in that.
