Stuck in its own kind of development hell for nearly a decade, Doom (otherwise known as Doom 4) is a back-to-basics run out for the series - buckets of blood, over-the-top weapons and more demons to turn into gory puddles than you can shake a boomstick at.
The hilarious activities of Druscilla and her cat Drizzle, not to mention her uncooperative donkey and feather-donating chickens make for a fascinating story of the invention of the magic flying boomstick! "Druscilla's Halloween" is a combination of practicality and magic, of belief and persistence, and Druscilla's determination demonstrates that valuable talents can be hidden in very strange packages.

I like prowling gun shops, pokin' around in George's Guns or Bob's House of Boomsticks looking for that one great bargain--the minty '03-A3, that as-new five-screw Smith & Wesson N-Frame, whatever--and I'll see a copy of Shooting Industry on the counter.
