    On Romeros image gallery, he shows a picture by Julie Bell with the Cyberdemon appearing more like a psycho bull on steroids than a "Cyberdemon".

    I always found it interesting that Julie Bell was considered for the Doom II job.
    Don Punchatz did the cover illustration for Doom I and they must have been happy with those results.
    Sadly, Don passed away in 2009.

    Now that would be a HOLY GRAIL painting to own.
    While I don't have that painting I do have one that Don Punchatz did for EGM to promote Doom on the 32X.

    Looks like the magazine went out of their way not to publish pictures of naked demons.

    Yeah I was hesitant to buy it at first but I'm glad I made the purchase. Had to repaint the metal shielding though because of some discoloration that I couldn't get out. Ended up looking good.

    And had to edit my post a couple times. Stupid imgur automatically made my posts public lol (I'm on mobile).

    Someone make an adapter that will allow the Steel Battalion controller to work as a RC/Drone controller.

    I borrowed the controller setup from a friend to make a video of the prototype. That shit is waayyyy to expensive ha ha. But using it to control an R/C car would be pretty awesome lol.

    I own two copies of The Art of Computer Designing (Japanese release)
    It's an art book made by Osamu Sato, most known for LSD Dream Emulator and The Eastern Mind
    I am willing to trade or sell one of them, but I guess I need to get my post count higher or get some verification from an administrator before I can

    What? They actually made hard copies of that game? Wow. Funny thing is that I was playing it on my EverDrive yesterday. Good version of Revirsi but why did they have to put young girls taking off their tops in to it :( spoiled a good game as now I look like a pedophile for playing it.

    The rarest item I own is the full set of the Sammy Keyboard controller for Phantasy Star Online for the GC. I have all the manuals, and the pack of cards unopened. I also have a Lodgenet GC controller in its packaging, mint condition. I have also almost completed my GC controller collection so there's that.
