Doom is now only $20 at GameStop, Collector's Edition 62% off

Doom's next update has a neat feature that's a callback to the original game

Doom did what most people thought was impossible when it captured the essence of the 1993 game and adapted it to 2016 standards. It was an undertaking that seemed preordained to fall flat, but id Software did an incredible job making D...   read

Doom's multiplayer is being taken over by id, who promises to fix things

We've spent plenty of time praising Doom's single-player campaign. Our review breathlessly covers it, and we even dedicated most of a podcast to discussing it. The reason we keyed in on that aspect of the game so heavily is because the...   read

Doom even managed to hide satanic imagery in its music
