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...

Finally, the Seinfeld apartment recreated in Doom 2

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 ...

Doom record speed run photo

You can beat Doom in under an hour and a half

Sure, beating Doom on the hardest difficulty with perma-death on is kind of impressive, I guess. But it also takes like five hours, to say nothing of the numerous multi-hour runs in which you'll inevitably fuck up and die and have to start...

Doom Ultra Nightmare beat photo

Man beats hardest Doom difficulty without dying
