In this inaugural cast of Retro-Spectives, Pat and James seek the truth by breaking down the following questions:

  • Just how difficult is Doom?  It was hard in the past, but have all our years of popping heads in call of duty made it a cakewalk?

  • Are its levels a masterpiece of design or just confusing mazes?

  • How many toxic pits will we go diving into for some bullets or in hope of finding a secret?

We answer these questions and more in the first episode of Retro Spectives!
