Finally, the Seinfeld apartment recreated in Doom 2

In a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup of Things Only '90s Kids Will Remember (and perfectly attuned to my being on the Seinfeld anniversary arc of Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jerry's apartment from Seinfeld has been remade in Doom II by one Doug Keene...   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

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

When a review embargo is held until the day of release, potential buyers have a right to be nervous. Bethesda holding review copies of Doom until the day of release seemed damning to more than a few people.  I started playing at about ...   read

Doom's Achievements look surprisingly not-hellacious
