The next episode of Discovery Channel's MythBusters — the show in which rumors, urban legends and myths are tested with a scientific approach — will explore an aspect of video games that most first-person shooter fans take for granted. The question the show will attempt to answer is: "Is it possible for someone to lug around a half-dozen guns, grenades, a chainsaw and a bunch of health packs, while also fending off demons from Hell (or their closest equivalent)?
"Using id Software's Doom games — specifically Doom 3 BFG Edition — as a template, MythBusters' Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman will do their best to bust myths about first-person shooters. In a video posted to Bethesda Softworks' YouTube channel, the publisher says that id Software creative director Tim Willits will aid Savage and Hyneman in their Doom experiment. Bethesda says Willits will help their research team "recreate a Doom level in real life."
The Doom episode of MythBusters airs this Saturday, Jan. 31 at 9 p.m. ET on Discovery. Perhaps Bethesda will use the show to give us an update on Doom 4, which we last heard about at QuakeCon this past July, or at least the latest on the promised Doom 4 beta.
So, I really have no idea what I'm doing here. I guess I can just talk about whatever. I'd like to start with music. Video games have been my passion since 1980, but music has always been a close second for me. If you didn't gather from my username, I love Ween! I love every genre of music as long as it challenges me to accept something that the majority may not. One of my favorite things about playing the classic consoles is I don't have to listen to dialogue and can blast music! Remember being in the arcade playing Defender with Dead Kennedys blasting!! I do enjoy the modern games with a story, sometimes I just wanna play Joust and listen to Iron Maiden! Have a great night, i'll get this right eventually!
