A brand new writer in the fields, Fatima has been taken under my electric spark's RGB- rich and ensures she doesn't engage in excessive snark on the website. It's unclear what command and Conquer are; however, she can talk for hours about the odd rhythm games, hardware, product reviews, and MMOs that were popular in the 2000s. Fatima has been creating various announcements, previews, and other content while here, but particularly enjoys writing regarding Products' latest news in the market she's currently addicted to. She is likely talking to an additional blogger with her current obsession right now.

Doom RPG is one of those odd side-stories in videogame history, a project born from id Software co-founder John Carmack’s relentlessly tinkering nature. It was a mobile game from the pre-smartphone era, and the game’s origins are as simple as Carmack’s wife buying him a slightly better phone: which naturally set our boy to thinking.

“Getting into this was really a sort of random event,” Carmack told Eurogamer in 2006. “A year ago, I rarely carried a cell phone, and it was just an old black and white clunker. When my wife gave me a new mid-range phone with a decent colour display and some bad game demos on it, I had my curiosity piqued a little about the platform. It turned out to be really easy to develop Java applications for the phone, so I played around a little bit and started thinking about what elements would make a good game for the platform.”
