Doom's Arcade Mode is the ideal way to play the campaign

Doom is a really solid shooter. It evokes old-school level design with an emphasis on all-out action and not a lot in the way of fluff. The story definitely draws too much attention towards the end, but the game has a breakneck pace that ha...

Doom looks ripe for a replay with Arcade mode

I played Doom once and adored it. Then I went straight back in to mop up the collectibles, and continued having a good time. Next it was on to the multiplayer, which didn't do much for me, and I've since been meaning to play the campaign a...

Doom soundtrack now officially available

Ever since the release of Doom back in May, fans have been clamoring for an official soundtrack release. Bethesda was silent on the matter and, oddly, didn't even have a digital version for purchase. People just wanted to rip and tear at th...

PC platformers and pixels of the past

If you grew up playing games in the late '80s or early '90s, you remember that Mario dominated the discussion on playgrounds and after school. By some estimates, Nintendo controlled up to 90% of the home console market, and it's no wonder t...

Every game is better with God Hand in it

God Hand. You've played it right? Otherwise known as Clover's (RIP) best game (which is hard to do when you made Viewtiful Joe and Okami), it's pretty much the quintessential brawler. It had it all -- customization, a deep combat syste...

Podtoid reviews Doom

Maybe the biggest gaming surprise of the year so far has been how excellent Doom turned out. Seriously, there was tremendous doubt all the way up until the minute it launched. Then, once the campaign starts, well, those concerns all me...

Doom even managed to hide satanic imagery in its music

They say if you play Doom's soundtrack backwards, you can faintly make out the lyrics, "The devil is good, actually; the devil is good actually," in repetitive locust drones. Well, not quite, but in a move that 30 years ago would have been...

Doom's composer explains how they created its hellish feel

Seeing sound teams work their magic is a thing of beauty. I've had the good fortune of seeing sound-proof rooms at work at a few studios, and the things they use for inspiration are pretty unreal at times. That also applies to the composer ...
