Doom VFR makes me sick

I like to gush about how good I think Doom 2016 is. Some naysayers on the sidelines like to point out its flaws, and I respect that; nothing is perfect, and I could write a doctorate on the fundamental differences between new and old Doom a...

Doom is the gift that keeps on giving

Out of nowhere, a three hundred pound man in an Avengers t-shirt barrels through the crowd, stomping on a child who falls to the ground clutching a Steam gift card between rigor-mortis frozen fingers. An old man is pushed violently under a ...

The original Doom but with loot boxes

Doom originally released in 1993, approximately two decades before the invention (or at least popularizing) of video game loot boxes. Thankfully, we have the technology to fix the mistakes of our past. ZDoom is a fan-made port th...

Review: Doom (Switch)

PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox One. It's a weird phrase I'm not used to seeing. During the Wii U era, PC, PS4, Xbox One kind of just flowed out of my fingertips. It's muscle memory at this point, seeing a major multiplatform game on the "big three" ...

Sometimes, the enemy makes the game

[There are not many feelings in this world, besides sex, that are as satisfying as besting an enemy that genuinely tests your skill. When you come out on top, you feel like a total badass. Not because it was easy but because it wasn’t...

Doom on Switch is somehow smaller than NBA 2K18

In the week following Nintendo's reveal of Doom coming to the Switch, we've gotten a bunch of info about the specifics of how large it will be and how it will perform. While we already knew the game cart wasn't going to include multiplayer,...

Doom's Olivia Pierce was inspired by Tilda Swinton

Last year's DOOM is already one of my favorite first-person shooters. Every piece of the game feels as though it was designed to hit players like a sack of bricks. Its combat encounters are violent and snappy affairs that encourage both con...

Doom is free on PS4 this weekend

I'm sure most people with any interest in the genre have probably gotten around to playing Doom. It's one of the best FPS games around, and I'm speaking as a huge fan of the original games. In a bit of a surprise move, Bethesda recently ann...

All multiplayer DLC will be free with Doom's 6.66 update

Doom's latest update marks some big changes for its multiplayer mode. A blog post from Bethesda explains how the progression system is receiving a total overhaul and, more notably, how all the previously released DLC (a season pass original...

Who was Doomguy? John Romero has a funny story about that

Behind-the-scenes Doom stuff is my jam, and I like to think plenty of you feel the same way. With that in mind, John Romero has shared an anecdote about the box art that you need to see. It's a good one. The original plan, back in 1993, was...

Bethesda announces Doom VFR at E3 for PSVR and Vive

To kick off their 2017 press conference, the jazzed up "Bethesdaland," company VP Pete Hines introduced "one of two VR projects" they have in the works, Doom VFR. Not much is known about it right now other than that it's some form of D...

Weird science: play DOOM on a Porsche 911

There's thunder and lightning flashing outside as I write this, which adds a nice bit of punctuation to the mad science that I'm writing about. I would have never believed it could be so easy, but apparently the onboard computer in the Pors...

Peter Glagowski's personal picks for Game of the Year 2016

2016 wasn’t the best year for gaming, at least in my opinion. We definitely saw some solid titles come out (along with the end of a decade-long wait for two games!), but a lot of the major releases this year were retreads of tired the...

Here is Doom II being played on a keyboard key display

Apparently there is a brand of keyboards that includes a tiny display in each individual key -- the Optimus Maximus is one of them. This allows you to program them to display whatever you'd like, so Doom had to be the obvious conclusion to ...

Review: Zen Pinball 2: Bethesda Pinball

I was in a game store when I came across a box of Bethesda blind-bag toys the other day. I don't know why, but they kind of captivated me for a little while. Seeing plastic miniatures of Dog Meat and the Lone Survivor mixing with the DoomGu...

Today's Doom update adds bots to multiplayer

The fifth free update for Doom rolls out today, and with it comes a new grab-the-ball-and-score multiplayer mode, Infernal Run, as well as a higher level cap, bots (!!!), and a better SnapMap. As much as I don't have any interest in returni...

ZeniMax Media is targeting a Doom fan game

The lasting legacy of Doom shouldn't only be attributed to the quality of the main game. Creator id Software had such a lax approach to fan creations that it eventually bought a few for a full retail release (Final Doom) as well as licensed...

Looking at Ni No Kuni II, and it looks really cool! Will I have to play the first one, or is this a final Fantasy situation where you don’t have to know anything?

Curious about Have you ever bought a game not because you expected it to be good, but because you just wanted to enjoy one or a few particular concepts it uses?

So I just watched a recent tear-jerking anime that I could somehow relate to when it comes to its subject It has a few issues, but I enjoyed it Plus, I thought of it having a weird crossover art with another
