Happy 20th Anniversary, Doom


This was the game that cemented my love for FPS titles
Dec 10
On December 10, 1993, Doom was released. Although it was far from the first FPS game I ever played (I was rocking Catacomb and Wolfenstein already), it had a profound effect on me, as I tirelessly spent hundreds of hours... read

What if Doom were produced today?


Screen full of jelly, soft drink ads, and DLC!
Nov 19
Doom was an immensely popular and genre-defining game back when it was released in 1993. It paved the way for many titles that followed and is still seen as one of the purest forms of first-person shooter gameplay. But thing... read

Prior to restart, Doom 4 lacked a 'personality'


All of id is focused on the project now
Aug 05
Coming into this year's QuakeCon, I didn't expect to hear much of anything about Doom 4. Like a child who doesn't get that one specific toy for Christmas year after year, I can only have my heart broken so many times. It's co... read

No matter what, the shotgun is still your best option

Bethesda Shop

Get Skyrim shirts from the official Bethesda store


Celebrate the pubs of Skyrim
Mar 14
Bethesda now has an official shop where you can buy a good-sized and varied selection of merchandise related to Skyrim, Dishonored, Fallout, Doom, Quake, and Wolfenstein. Everything from t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, figurines, lithographs, and messenger bags.  Personally, I would love to wear a Winking Skeever shirt with a pair of Vault 101 sneakers. That's the pinnacle of fashion my friends. read
A new console generation. A new batch of tech demos that mislead consumer expectations. As perfectly evidenced by Gearbox's recent Aliens demo, savvy game enthusiasts don't take kindly to developers promising one thing and de... read feature

Doom's Cacodemon bursts forth from LEGO Hell


OH GOD KILL IT
Feb 13
Allistair Pinsof, is that you? Whoops! My mistake! The hideous Cacodemon. Born from the depths of Hell -- or from the cover of a D&D manual, but whatevs. Now he's returned in LEGO form, badder (and a little bit fatter) th... read
Mention DOOM 3 to most fans, and the common (disparaging) response will be, "Monster Closets." Earning criticism for its jump scares, lack of charisma, and stylistic departure from previous DOOM titles, DOOM 3 has not aged we... read feature

DOOM 3: BFG is finally out today, have a launch trailer


It has demons and stuff...in 3D
Oct 16
Can you believe DOOM 3 came out eight years ago? To be honest, I feel like it didn't even really need an HD release. To me it still looks fantastic. Oh well, I guess it looks even better now, so that's cool. Also, it's in 3D... read

I'm an old school gamer, but I like to think I have an open mind. I like it when series reinvent themselves and I rarely object when a developer attempts a new aesthetic or visual style. I was there to applaud Konami's Guille... read feature

Today I played DOOM 3: BFG Edition and it was so intensely scary that I did an actual poo in my underpants. Fortunately, it was just a small and hard one, so I don't think anybody noticed. I just slyly shook it out of my leg ... read feature

E3: Turn the lights off! New Doom 3: BFG Edition screens


Jun 05
Gotta say that Doom 3 looked a lot more terrifying back in 2004, but hopefully Bethesda is still polishing it up. That "Lost Missions" chapter seems interesting as well, but the game won't coming anytime soon. Doom 3 BFG Edition will be bringing 2004 high-definition hell to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC this fall. read
