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's latest update brings out free-for-all deathmatch

Even if I have little to no interest in returning to Doom's multiplayer, I'm glad to see it have continued support. Following the fairly recent Unto the Evil DLC (more maps and gear, plus a new Harvester demon), id Software has pushed out ...   read

Doom getting deathmatch and private matches soon

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


Forget Champions, I just want Quake!

A recent GameSpot interview with Tim Willits, Quake Champions project lead, has confirmed that the shooter will allow for non-champion-based deathmatch in custom games. While that isn't the same as creating a different game mode without the...   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

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

Finally, the Seinfeld apartment recreated in Doom 2

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

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...   read

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...   read

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 ...   read

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...   read

Man beats hardest Doom difficulty without dying

Doom's "Ultra Nightmare" mode raises the stakes on the shooter's hardest difficulty setting, Nightmare, and adds permadeath. That means if you die once, you have to start the entire thing over. And it only took a day! YouTube's Zero Master...   read

Review: Doom

In my review-in-progress for Doom, I mentioned that "if what I've played so far is indicative of the rest of the campaign, the late embargo is absolutely nothing to be worried about." That was based on four hours of ripping the heads o...   read

Still the best part of the new Doom

I saw this (as a GIF) days ago and I still think about it and it still makes me happy. Perhaps you, like me, don't have any particular intention to play Doom right now, unless maybe it's cheap in a sale or some kind souls buys it for you. ...   read
