Random Madness: Wild Hogs: Level 12 of Doom

I saw that movie Wild Hogs the other day for about the tenth time. Some argued it was just a major cash-in attempt, with a bunch of funny guys involved in a crappy story, but I actually sort of liked it. You’ve got plenty of well known stars in there like John Travolta, Ray Liotta, William H. Macy, Tim Allen, and Martin Lawrence.

Anyway, I just laughed at two of the gaming-related lines in that film, said by Charley, the sheriff:
“Hey, I took my law enforcement course on the internet! For arms training they just told us to play Doom!”
“Man, that was like Level 12 of Doom!”
He said the second line after the standoff between Damien Blade and his son, Jack. In other words - it was really intense.

Now to get all nerdish, I looked up to see what the actual level was he was talking about. I presume he’s talking about Doom 1, seeing as he didn’t say Doom II or Doom 3, although it would make more sense that it would be Doom 3 seeing as it was released only a few years before this movie.

Anyway, in this case, if it’s the PC version of Doom, then it would probably be E2M3: Refinery in the Shores of Hell Episode.

Not a particularly hard level, but some nice scenery and a rocking soundtrack, inspired by “Regular People” by Pantera. If they wanted to talk about a hard level, they should have said the level with the ol’ Cyberdemon. Anyway, you know what Hollywood’s like: clueless.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
