Well, I finally broke down and downloaded the Duct Tape mod.  ("Under the crazy presumption that a roll of duct tape has to exist somewhere on the Mars facility, the Duct Dape mod sticks flashlights to your machinegun and shotgun.")

In case you've been living in a cave and thus haven't read any reviews, Doom 3 is a dark game.  Very dark.  Shadows everywhere.  Some areas are pitch fucking black.  You have a flashlight, but it's considered a weapon, so you can't have a gun out at the same time--not even your pistol.  While this is wonderfully atmospheric and very scary, it's also rather annoying; after the rand(1_000) * 1_000th time I wasted shotgun shells by shooting at nothing, I decided enough was enough.  The Duct Tape mod projects a narrower beam than the flashlight, so the flashlight still has plenty of utility; it's just that I no longer have to stumble blindly through the game, hoping I don't bump in to anything undead, possessing pointy claws, or able to throw fireballs at me.

Oh, my haul for the last two nights:
  • The Thinkgeek "Killer Coding Ninja Monkeys" shirt, from my sister.
  • The Thinkgeek π shirt (where the symbol for pi is formed out of its first few thousand digits).

  • Tonight: America The Book: A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction (from the Daily Show people).
  • Two more shirts: the Thinkgeek "hacker." shirt and the "SELECT * FROM users WHERE clue > 0" shirt.  ("0 rows returned.")

Oh, and I had my toe sliced up by a doctor again today.  Whee.
