Thanksgiving Fun Attack

Thanksgiving Fun Attack

November: Things That Have Happened This Month... ...over the years! Well, back in 1992 id Software finally moved from an apartment to a real office space in Mesquite (the Black Cube). In 1996, I started Ion Storm with Tom Hall and our first office space was in the Quadrangle building near downtown Dallas. Interestingly, we've never released a [...]

October: The Month of Many Birthdays

October: The Month of Many Birthdays

Man, last month was hella busy for me and I forgot to announce all the fun birthdays that took place! We have 5 birthdays that happened last month, so let's begin: October 28th : John Romero - 35 years old (!) Yes, I'll announce myself first before the other ones since they're, ya know, not living beings. I just turned 35 and, yep, I feel [...]

10 PRINT “Hello World!”

My girlfriend, Stevie Case, shot 15 episodes of a new show called Lock -N- Load in London, England a couple months ago. It's currently being shown on TV in Asia and parts of Europe and will be making its way to the US hopefully soon. She does a great job as a hostess - the series is about a huge European Quake III tournament called SuperCap that [...]

The P4 Upgrade Edition

The P4 Upgrade Edition

Well, I finally upgraded my machines to P4-1.5Ghz and let me tell ya, you definitely need to know a few things before going out and buying the stuff you need. I went to Fry's here in Dallas and picked up the Intel 850i motherboard, RDRAM and P4-1.5Gzh processor. The first hint that I didn't know everything I should know was when I asked the [...]

A Healing Wolf

A Healing Wolf

I just wanted to add something that some of you might find interesting from the era immediately following our release of Wolfenstein 3D. Back then, the primary method of communication was a BBS, be it Prodigy, AOL, Compuserve, or any of the thousands of other BBS's (our favorite was Software Creations, hosted by Dan Linton). We received a lot of [...]

The First Quarter

The First Quarter

Been pretty busy lately as you can tell by my non-updates. I'm pretty excited by the recent release of Steven Kent's awesome video game history book, The First Quarter. You can get it on Amazon by clicking on the little pic -- you really owe it to yourself to read this amazing recounting of the old days by the insiders themselves. I wrote the [...]
