Gaming Now and Then - Retro Store
We’ve covered news local to “Opium Pulses HQ” in the past with the ‘Bring the Game Over’ service offered in and around Oxfordshire, United Kingdom. This time should interest both local and international video game collectors as most of what’s on offer can be bought across the globe!Recently, in my sleepy hometown of Faringdon, a temporary store popped up among the seemingly dying street of shops and I was instantly intrigued. The plan so far is to only stay open until the end of 2018, however the journey has been a positive one so who knows what will happen?Simply named ‘Gaming
Opium Pulses Points Disabled in Store (UPDATE)
UPDATEEarlier this year we made a very hard decision… allow us to elaborate…Since our store opened to the public in 2014, we’ve been constantly hit with fraudulent activity, not just real money fraud but multi-account point farming too, meaning our store stock was being bled dry by fraudsters who had no intention of paying for the products they claimed.

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)

Rock God Tycoon - Essentially a Rock Band simulator.

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.

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
