During our recent trip to id Software, one of my favorite pictures I took was of
DOOM’s Spidermastermind. The photo eventually became the model for LA bakery, Sweet and Saucy Cake Shop, to create a DOOM-themed cake. The cake was delivered today to X-Play’s X-Play’s Morgan Webb. For those attending QuakeCon, Morgan will be on hand to moderate our 20 Years of id Software panel.

Our European PR manager, Alistair Hatch, pointed me to an insane collection of DOOM collectibles on
Flickr and YouTube. Collected by Mahmut Saral (aka DOOM Collector), he’s got every possible version of the game ( 32X!!!), as well as guns from the movie, old as dirt press kits, and even an HD-DVD.
It’s a collection that would even make John Carmack envious… unless he’s actually got John stashed in somewhere in there.
