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 ...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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 ...

Doom getting deathmatch and private matches soon

Doom's multiplayer will be receiving a free update, soon, which will add deathmatch to the selection of game modes. Private matches are also coming, allowing players to tweak settings to their liking. Users can opt to turn off demon powers ...

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...

 
 
Quake Champions photo

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...

Doom has free and paid DLC incoming

After touching up Doom with a photo mode and a "classic" gun placement option, id Software has shifted its attention to multiplayer and SnapMap for the game's second free content update due out tomorrow, July 29. There are two new multipla...

More DOOM than DOOM

I was late to the party with the new Doom. I picked only picked up the game a few weeks ago. And by now, all the reviews have been written, everyone knows its great. There are already tons of articles, opinion pieces, and editoria...

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 ...

 
 
 
Doom x Seinfeld photo

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...

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...

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...
