Replacing the random lookup table in Doom... with interesting results.
What happens if you remove randomness from Doom? For some reason, recently I have been thinking about Doom. This evening I was wanting to explore some behaviour in an old version of Doom and to do so, I hex-edited the binary and replaced the random number lookup table with static values.

hex editing the text in command.com was always fun, making for a much more human / abusive OS... Replacing "Bad command or filename" with "Spell it right, asshole" for example

Ein weiteres neues Interview mit Harald Schmidt.

PS: Ich bin gespannt ob er tatsächlich Moderator von dem "Literarischen Quartett" wird. Ich denke das könnte gut passen.

Pretty impressed by Google Music All Access. I gave it a try today as the first month is for free anyway. Already I like it so much better than Spotify, which I could never really warm up to. Its player is a train wreck, while Google's web based player is very nice. And I can download albums to my mobile device so I don't have to use up 3G on the road.

Gamespot visits the creators of the Witcher series in Warsaw. Part one of a mini series about the upcoming Witcher 3 game. I can't wait to finally play it myself.
In part one of our three part series, Danny investigates the history of this beloved RPG franchise and introduces how Wild Hunt's prologue area attempts to introduce newcomers.

I have my doubts that this Game of Thrones leak was actually an accident... The way I see it this just serves to create more hype.

Awesome documentary: Sibel Kekilli (Shae actress) meets George R.R. Martin. Including footage of his private house, which is pretty insane :)

Film is in English language with German subtitles.
