On Location With: DOOM: The Movie

Filed under

Gaming

I'm standing on the set of the upcoming DOOM film, and, as someone who played all the way through DOOM 3, it's quite a surreal experience. From the dark hallways of the UAC facility to the caverns of the archaeological dig site down to the textures of the corridors, it's as if someone got permission to build a DOOM 3 theme park and tried to rebuild areas of the game brick by brick. It is about as close to standing inside a videogame as one could imagine.

The movie's set, however, is only one small part of the story, which, after years of being talked about, is finally set to hit theaters this October. In addition to visiting the set, we had a chance to meet with the movie's stars and producers, who all seem dedicated to making DOOM the first movie based on a videogame to finally, well, not suck.

Full Story.

Initial impressions of PCLinuxOS 2014.08

I spend more time looking at the family trees of Linux distributions than I do looking at my own family tree. I find it interesting to see how distributions grow from their parent distribution, either acting as an extra layer of features which regularly re-bases itself or as a separate fork. New distributions usually tend to remain similar in most ways to their parent distro, using the same package manager and maintaining similar philosophies. When I look at the family trees of Linux distributions one project stands out more than others: PCLinuxOS. Read more
