When Doom was first released, at least one person I knew was confused by it. "Where the heck am I? I don't see anyone here at all!" they squawked. "You are the player." 16-year-old me retorted brassily "You have to go around... read
I've fallen behind on Double Fine's developer-led Let's Play series Devs Play, but I can't resist jumping back in now, order be damned, for the episode about Doom featuring John Romero.

This is a total-conversion mod by DooMero that, well, you see ... it's the Donkey Kong Country experience rebuilt in GZDoom. Which is to say it'... read
This one's for you, Morph. Today there are a bunch of new trailers for games like Assassin's Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and The Last of Us Remastered (which is on sale) but Bill and I would rather talk about superhero cartoons from twenty years ago, and guns we can't remember the names of in Unreal Tournament. read feature

Bethesda said its big reveal of Doom -- that is in fact "Doom," not "Doom 4" -- at QuakeCon would be for attendees only, not for us Internet ne'er-do-wells, but I still watched the QuakeCon stream like a sucker, anyway. When ... read
The teaser trailer for Doom (4) didn't do much for me, but I'm looking forward to the long-awaited reveal. We'll see more of the game at this year's QuakeCon, set to take place in Dallas, Texas from July 17 - 20, or so I thou... read
I was barely old enough to game in 1993, let alone take trips to id Software for office tours. That's why I'm so jealous of one Dan Linton, owner of a wildly successful BBS known as Software Creation, who took a trip down to... read
I grew up with FPS games like Catacomb, Wolfenstein, and Doom, so this episode of Did You Know Gaming is a real treat. It goes over pretty much everything from the origins of the game, the origins of the name, and most of th... read

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
