Rise of the Triad Lowers the Doomstick


Now that I have a PC that can actually run every game I throw at it, Interceptor Entertainment’s Rise of the Triad reboot is high on my games-to-catch-up-on list. Today, it jumped up the list a few more notches with the release of patch version 1.4, which bundles a bunch of fixes and updates with free DLC, including 6 new community maps and the almighty Doomstick, “a semi-automatic Ludicrous shotgun from Hell.” How can you not want to shoot things with a gun called the Doomstick?

Even better news–at least for Steamers that don’t already own the game–Rise of the Triad is running at a 75% discount as the current Daily Deal on Steam. For the next 30-some-odd hours (as of press time), you can buy the game for a mere three bucks and some change. Holy Doomstick, that’s a great deal!
