While browsing the PlayStation Network, I was pleased to see that the classic PC game, Wolfenstein 3D had been made available for download.

This is one of the first games I owned for the PC and brings back lots of memories.

A lot of games you re-discover and play years on, often turn out to be a disappointment and not how you fondly remembered them. Wolfenstein is not one of these.

The graphics may not demand a Radeon TNT Exterminator 5000 (or whatever a decent video card is), but this is more than made up for in terms of game play, which cannot be rivalled, even by modern day standards.

The game may be very pixelated, with the Nazi’s bleeding red squares when shot, but it still feels very violent. This makes me think I was probably too young to play it when I first got hold of the Shareware copy all those years ago. I seem to remember my mum didn’t like it, and I often found myself repeatedly pressing the ESC key as I heard her climbing the stairs towards the spare room which housed our PC. On hindsight, I don’t really blame her.

Even in 2009, I still find myself getting a little scared and jumping while opening a rusty blue door to find myself staring down the barrel of a gun, branded by a crazy Nazi. Then there are the rabid Alsatians, which still remain the thing of nightmares.

A great game and well worth the £3.99 I paid to download it.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
