The Horror! – Blood: One Unit Full Blood Retro Review

Oct 31, 2014

Blood Still has Life Force in It  After playing about five minutes of Blood I was transported back to a time and place some of you may not remember. It was called the mid-90’s, and despite being very young, that didn’t stop older kids from giving me copies of Doom and the sequel.
