Now Playing: Burn:Cycle (1994)

After The Last Dynasty left such a bad taste in my mouth (shut up), I felt that I needed to balance things out by playing another obscure Windows 3.1 game, but this time a good one. At least that’s what I hoped. I had never played this one before now either. Always wanted to, but it just never came up. My PC wasn’t cool enough to handle it back in the day and the only other system it was ever on was CD-i and who the fuck had a CD-i?

Now Playing: The Last Dynasty (1994)

Site is still nowhere near ready, a proper site name, domain, and some other little design changes will be coming soon, but just going to throw this out there now anyway because it’s on my mind and that’s the whole point isn’t it?

So let’s see…The Last Dynasty. A combination space combat sim/fmv adventure game. Doesn’t that sound amazing? (Well it did to me!) The first thing you will notice about this game upon going to install it is that it will ONLY run on Windows 3.1. Being a classic PC nut I have a virtual drive with Win 3.1 on it for just such an occasion, so no big deal there.

Here we go again…

This is the blog of the entity known only, for the time being, as Richenbaum Fotchenstein.

Horrorgasm was an old IRC screen name of mine, which later became an old band of mine. My old blog-type site way back then was called the House of Hate and was MUCH more angry and vulgar than I intend this one to be, but despite the fact that these names make this sound like some kind of fetish porn and/or neo-nazi site, I’m going to stick with it for now.

To be honest, I don’t know exactly where this is going yet. Things will be ranted about. Other things, such as games, movies, and maybe a comic or two, will be discussed and reviewed. Stories of the days of old may be told, with the names changed to protect the innocent. Sometimes I may even just start rambling off insane story ideas I have, but don’t quite know what to do with yet.

You will either enjoy these things or you won’t. This post won’t do much to change your mind either way on that front. At best I suppose all I can offer here is a warning to those who are easily offended and/or confused by strange and/or nerdy things: you’re probably in the wrong place. Fuck off.

Otherwise…welcome!

Actual content will follow shortly, as well as any needed modifications that come up. The design of this page clearly needs some alterations still, but this will do to begin with, and I don’t think it will end up straying too much further from the current minimalist look.

See you soon.
