Bethesda showcases new Quake Champions character, announces beta start date

For anyone still interested in the different "champions" in the upcoming Quake Champions, Bethesda has released a new trailer that goes over Anarki's abilities. Anarki was actually in Quake III Arena, so he should be familiar to any old-sch...   read

Quake Champions ain't your granddad's Quake

I’m a big fan of old-school shooters. I cut my teeth on them in my youth and I still get a kick out of how ultra fast paced and skill based those older games were. I can return to classics like Unreal Tournament and Quake III Arena wi...   read

Quake Champions will be free, but there's also the option to buy it

There's a certain degree of mystery surrounding Quake Champions. The allure here is that it's Quake, and that's a classic franchise that a lot of people cut their teeth on. But, it's also 2017 and that means publisher Bethesda might be susc...   read

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...   read

RAGE goes digital on Xbox One

Id's RAGE was sort of a cross between Fallout and Borderlands, and there was plenty to do in the post-apocalyptic wasteland caused by an enormous meteor smashing into the earth. It had a pretty good driving engine for the Mad Max ...   read

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...   read

Doom 4 was canceled because it felt too much like Call of Duty

The story of Doom 4 is one that has mostly not been told yet. For years, id Software toiled away at the next Doom game while simultaneously working on Rage. Eventually, that project was scrapped and another (2016's Doom) was started. ...   read

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...   read

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...   read

Rad Rodgers: World One has sleeper-hit potential

Rad Rodgers: World One is a game that, quite literally, came out of nowhere for me. We got a message from the publisher, 3D Realms, and I was blown away by the trailer. I wasn’t so sure the game’s humor would work, but the amoun...   read

Get your RAGE on Xbox One!

One of the weirder promotional tie-ins can be found in id Software's RAGE from 2011. For some reason, Blake Griffin (from the LA Clippers) campaigned to be featured in the title and wound up getting a bobble head in the game. I hadn't heard...   read

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...   read

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...   read

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...   read

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

We were expecting Doom to eventually hit the $20 price point, but what we didn't expect was that GameStop would be the retailer to make it happen. Today seems to also be a Doom discount frenzy day, because the May 2016 title also has i...   read

Yeah, I'm not sold on Quake Champions yet

Quake Champions was a nice surprise out of E3, but the teaser didn't give us much to on, and talk of classes and abilities turned some long-time fans off entirely. Today's gameplay footage out of QuakeCon is a better showing, inherently, t...   read

Quake Champions will be PC-only to avoid 'limitations'

When Quake Champions was announced at E3, it ruffled some feathers. In one moment, it made the PC crowd jump for joy when id Software noted that it would be 120Hz. In another, they crashed a lot of old school arena shooter fan's hopes ...   read
