2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. DesuArchive & RBT restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but posts need import from the contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

Early FPS games and their role in civil violence.

Well, well, well /vr/, looks like your video games led to some severe violence.
John and Michael Miller were known for their obsession with EARLY FIRST-PERSON SHOOTER games. This had a significant impact on their altercation with their neighbor Aaron Howard, most notably their outrageous demeanor, how they almost perfectly imitated the characters in their games as they instinctively resorted to the use of firearms to blast away their opponent.
The Millers' favorite retro shooters were all DOS-ROMS: Duke Nukem', Castle Wolfenstein, Doom, and some Batman game. Apparently, Michael Miller was in an especially hostile mood that day because he was unable to beat the first level of this Batman game, leaving him so angry that he was just itching to shoot someone.
