Free game of the Week: Wolfenstein 3D

Are you a gamer? Do you like free things? Of course you do!

We here at the Tech Deck are just like you - poor gamers looking for a good deal. And you can't beat no price tag.

So we'll be on the lookout for games offered sans cost around the Internet. If you see a deal we should feature on the blog, contact us at dang@spokesman.com or kiph@spokesman.com.

It's been more than 22 years since Johns Romero and Carmack unleashed Wolfenstein 3D on the world, id Software's precursor to the mega Doom franchise that would follow. This year saw the release of Wolfenstein: The New Order, a game that was unapologetically old school and received rave reviews.

The original DOS game that saw protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz eventually fight a mechanized Hitler can be relived for free in your browser, thanks to a release from Bethesda Softworks on the game's 20th anniversary a few years back.
