Doom's getting a PS4 Pro and Xbox One X patch

Doom is calling my name and I'm tempted to play through the whole thing again. id Software plans to roll out an update for Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro tomorrow that enables 4K support. This video is about it for details, so we'll have ...

Doom Switch update adds motion controls

I'm still a bit bothered that Bethesda waited until the zero hour to give out review copies for Doom -- they should have been shouting about how great it was from the rooftops a week in advance. Over time though I think people got the ...

Doom's audio issues on Switch will be fixed soon

The Nintendo Switch version of Doom is an admirable effort, to be sure, but the port is not without its issues. One of the more annoying problems is that the audio can glitch out from time to time, as shown here. It's the type of thing you ...

Doom is the gift that keeps on giving

Out of nowhere, a three hundred pound man in an Avengers t-shirt barrels through the crowd, stomping on a child who falls to the ground clutching a Steam gift card between rigor-mortis frozen fingers. An old man is pushed violently under a ...

Review: Doom (Switch)

PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox One. It's a weird phrase I'm not used to seeing. During the Wii U era, PC, PS4, Xbox One kind of just flowed out of my fingertips. It's muscle memory at this point, seeing a major multiplatform game on the "big three" ...

Doom on Switch is somehow smaller than NBA 2K18

In the week following Nintendo's reveal of Doom coming to the Switch, we've gotten a bunch of info about the specifics of how large it will be and how it will perform. While we already knew the game cart wasn't going to include multiplayer,...

Doom's Olivia Pierce was inspired by Tilda Swinton

Last year's DOOM is already one of my favorite first-person shooters. Every piece of the game feels as though it was designed to hit players like a sack of bricks. Its combat encounters are violent and snappy affairs that encourage both con...

Doom is free on PS4 this weekend

I'm sure most people with any interest in the genre have probably gotten around to playing Doom. It's one of the best FPS games around, and I'm speaking as a huge fan of the original games. In a bit of a surprise move, Bethesda recently ann...

Weird science: play DOOM on a Porsche 911

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...

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...

Doom soundtrack now officially available

Ever since the release of Doom back in May, fans have been clamoring for an official soundtrack release. Bethesda was silent on the matter and, oddly, didn't even have a digital version for purchase. People just wanted to rip and tear at th...

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 ...

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...

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 ...

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...

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...

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...

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. ...

Review in Progress: Doom

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 ...

Doom's Achievements look surprisingly not-hellacious

Doom is two days away from releasing, and it seems like we still know suspiciously little about it. Like, Bethesda has shown bits of the campaign and held multiplayer betas. Still, it all feels like one big question mark. The recently-...

So, it's Tuesday -- the date that's typically reserved for new releases -- and there's no review of Doom up. Well, two things! First, Doom actually isn't out today, it's out on Friday, May 13. Second, Bethesda has informed us that...

One last look at Doom's single-player before launch
