When a PEGI listing for new RAGE downloadable content surfaced months ago, it felt a bit late, considering the game released in October of last year. Still, the add-on seemed like something we'd be interested in checking out ...


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...

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 ...

Who better to give you insight into the weapons of id Software's post-apocalyptic shooter RAGE than Snoop Dogg? When this man tells you that something is capable of "taking off a motherf*cker's head," you trust him because he knows what he's talking about. I love the random celebrity appearances that are a part of game marketing. The less sense they make, the better.

RAGE's release has been dominated by reports of the game running poorly on PC. Unfortunately, a PC version wasn't provided before we were able to run our review, but I've gotten my hands on a copy via Steam and played through the first mission to see how it stacks up compared to the Xbox 360 version.  I am beginning to count myself lucky that I didn't have to fully play it for the review.
