[edit] Wolfenstein VS Doom

The "Get Sblounkched!" line at the beginning of the 8-Bit-is-Enough section, coupled with the fact that the King of Town behaves just like the Wolfenstein end-of-level-boss, leads me to believe that that is a reference to Wolfenstein 3D, not to Doom. --The New Uzi Bazooka 11:25, 6 August 2010 (UTC)


Okay, I just found out that the segment's called "Castle Poopenstein." This is clearly not a reference to Doom. I'm taking it off. --The New Uzi Bazooka 11:25, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Font

You think it is worth mentioning that the font on "Blue Laser Blasts" (or rather the words Blue Laser), is written in the font DooM, which is based off of the font in Doom?--Geonightman 17:40, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

I never noticed that, good catch! And yes, it is worth mentioning. Just be sure to link Fonts and Breakfast Cereals from Specially Marked to this article, too. Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 18:41, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Daemon

Isn't an email refresh daemon just a general e-mail thing?

A Wikipedia: Daemon is a general kind of program, yes. Used mainly by Unix. However, the specific wording of "Refresh.daemon" is what makes it a reference to Doom. Many people, usually WAD builders, have been looking through the Doom source code for decades, and there are a few lines[1] that have puzzled them as to their actual meaning. One is this: "R_Init: Init DOOM refresh daemon - [................................................]" What begins as some kind of execution for a process in the code turns into a line of random dots. But as you see, the beginning reads "Init [Initiate] DOOM refresh daemon." So it's a reference. --The New Uzi Bazooka 11:45, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
