Enter World 1-1. With a crowdfunding campaign running on kickstarter right now, filmmakers Jeanette Garcia and Daryl Rodriguez are looking to change that. With your help, this first film will chronicle the rise of the Atari age, with later chapters bringing us through the years and up to the current state of the industry.
There are many things that one could note about id Software's classic, Doom. The sci-fi horror shooter basically defined a genre. It's horrific, violent imagery made it the scapegoat of many an incident. It outpaced Microsoft's Windows 95 OS on installs on PCs. Doom, and the brilliant minds behind it, are bonafide legends. I could cite a million facts, or wax nostalgic for days; but there is no need, is there? Instead, we'll pay tribute to the masterpiece with not only a behind the scenes look at id from 1993, but speedruns of the original three episodes of Doom; my own personal world record runs. Sit back, and enjoy the ride. Here's to twenty years of killing demons, and many more. Hit the link and check it out. Chick-chick boom, baby.

The Bounty is a unique, retro styled, high score based RPG. A roguelike with a classic arcade edge. It's meant to challenge the player, and inspire them to push their limits further. You start your game, and delve into the dungeon; everything you do rewards you with points. But there are no shops, no inns, no safehouses. Once you die, you die.
To check out the indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, learn more, see what you perks you can get for contributing, and download the latest available version of the demo, please head here, to the official Indiegogo for The Bounty.
Nintendo's newest home console, Wii U, is a clever, unique, powerful system. One that a majority of folks haven't experienced, if reasonably low sales are any indication. This piece will be Gaming World Wide's way of introducing you to this fun machine.

Gaming World Wide is back with another installment of the Under Appreciated Games feature! This time around, we're going to take a step back to the sixth generation, consisting of the Dreamcast, Playstation 2, Gamecube, and XBox. Some of the last gen of consoles still play these games, and the original machines can still be easily picked up, so it isn't difficult to dive right in. There was a big, crazy world outside of GTA, Zelda, and Halo. Now's as good a time as any to explore what you may have missed.
