Nazi on the ground, shirtless B.J. Blazkowicz’s boot on his chest — where have we seen this before? How about wherever fine PC games were sold back in 1992?
He’s a little leaner, a lot less mullet-y and his facial expression no longer suggests he’s passing gas, but B.J.’s Nazi-kicking form hasn’t changed all that much over the past 23 years, as seen in this DOS box art from MobyGames.
It was a simpler time back then. A time when 640K of RAM and a 286 were enough to deliver a mind-blowing first-person experience. A time when soldiers tied random strips of cloth to their wrists. A time when you weren’t cool unless your hair was tickling the nape of your neck.
We’re just getting started playing through Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, but from the get-go MachineGames is showing off its deep love for the franchise. We’ll have more as our Nazi-slaying adventure continues.
