Just woke up from a strange nightmare

I just woke up from a strange nightmare. I'm not even sure if I can call it a nightmare, but it spooked the hell out of me. Here's what I can remember of it.
I was living in an apartment. Not totally unlike the townhouse I live in right now, but it was one story and all the walls, floor, and ceiling were white but dimly lit- like everything was lit with fluorescent bulbs that weren’t getting enough power. Another difference was that there were a lot of doors to the outside. Out the front door was a courtyard area enclosed by surrounding apartments. It was the dead of night, must have been around 1 or 2 am.
But I didn’t want to go outside. No matter what I wanted to stay in the apartment. Taking even a single step outside filled me with dread and anxiety. I’d need to run back inside to stop hyperventilating.

Halloween Scavenger Hunt Rerelease

Three years ago I released a small game to my friends on social media sites.  This game was called "Halloween 2013," or "Halloween Scavenger Hunt."

This year I decided to update and rerelease the game with some new features.

VR Gimmicks and the Future

A quick video of me rambling about VR's position in gaming, how to make some money with in the short term, what the long term position VR will hold in gaming will be.

And, just to clarify, throwing out there that I'm only talking about gaming in VR.  There's many other avenues down which VR will be a massive success.

Doom Is, In Fact, 3D

So, with the release of the new Doom game, there's been some hubbub of people looking back on the old games.  One thing that caught my attention, was that there are people talking about the technical aspects of how Doom and Wolfenstein 3D makes them not 3D games.  Not really, anyway.

The comments section of the video kind of exploded with people arguing that there's little distinction given for why Doom isn't 3D and that the definition for what actually makes a game 3D isn't really given in a clear way.  Some people have attempted to defend the claims, but, in the end it just doesn't hold up.

Doom is a 3D game, and I can't believe I have to explain why.
