Seventeen years ago, portals such as Gamespot circulated the news that gold master disc of the original StarCraft is missing and probably stolen. For those of you who don't know this, when a game is finished then the code for that game is saved on the Gold Master (GM) disk, which is then sent to the multiplication for the market, so we say that the game has gone gold or is in gold stage when the finished copies are prepared for customers.
User Khemist49 claimed on Reddit last month that he bought a bunch of old drives through E-Bay and found GM drive of Starcraft among them. In the comments some prayed to publish it, other advised how to legally protect himself, and some didn't believe him. He shook his drive on live stream and it was confirmed that it was a real GM of the original StarCraft.
He decided to be honest and give the disc back to Blizzard two weeks ago. Yesterday he again appeared on Reddit with information that confirmed the veracity of the story. Blizzard sent him Overwatch and $250 in the Blizzard Store. Then they called him on the phone to thank him and for the confirmation that the disk was stolen. He was also invited to BlizzCon with all costs covered, so they can sit down together to talk about the situation live. He accepted and in the end he was told to expect a package, and soon after he received a "packet" with its periphery that you see on the image below

A few more games inspired by metal that I think are worth mentioning (I'll try to keep this up to date with any suggestions)
Heavy Metal Machines - A nice combination of Micro Machines and Motor Rock with more metal!
Rock God Tycoon - Essentially a Rock Band simulator.
Metal Tales: Fury Of The Guitar Gods - Top-down twin-stick arcade shooter made by metalheads for metalheads.
Painkiller: Hell & Damnation - 90s style first-person shooter with a metal soundtrack and gothic style
BDSM: Big Drunk Satanic Massacre - You play as Satan's son in a twin-stick shooter with a metal soundtrack and nude demons.
Slain: Back From Hell - A heavy metal inspired arcade combat and puzzle platformer.
Valfaris - Indirect sequel to Slain, with tighter controls, prettier graphics and heavier soundtrack,
Butcher - Known by some as the 2D DOOM or by me as Soldat with a heavy metal skin.
Charlie Murder - Control a punk rock band in a beat 'em up RPG set in the zombie apocalypse!
Death Goat - If DOOM was a twin-stick shooter and allowed you to play an a wheelchair bound OAP.
Rock 'N' Roll Defense - A tower defense game that involves keeping unwanted idiots away from the rock show.
A Story of a Band - A quirky little band management simulation game.
Ubermosh Series - Twin-stick series that involve slicing bullets with swords in gun-filled cyberpunk mosh pits.
And for those interested in the game mentioned a few comments above

I mean I guess that's all the original Doom games ever were? Only with even less story!
But I know what you mean about the repetitiveness of the more modern Doom games, I think the fact they're so intense and demanding means you actually get mentally exhausted after just a few hours, I completed the original Doom just a few weeks ago and I didn't get that same fatigue. I pre-ordered Eternal and I still haven't completed it! But I tend to take my time with games and I'm perfectly okay with taking up to a few years to complete a game, so long as I get there eventually.
With Doom and Wolfenstein thriving with modern releases, I think I'd really like to see a new take on the Quake series.May 06, 2020
