Peter Glagowski's personal picks for GOTY 2017

2017 may be over, but it won’t be forgotten. While 2016 had a collection of some decent enough titles, everyone brought out their A game this year. While I’m still not quite sure whether these games are as important as years pas...

How Strafe's 'Millennium Edition' overhauls the entire game

When it released in May 2017, Strafe was something of an anomaly. The first-person shooter looked like a game from a bygone era. It was fast and violent, not unlike Quake, with relentless enemies hell-bent on stopping players dead in their ...

STRAFE is getting a massive update with extra content

Say what you will about the hugely divisive STRAFE, but I thought the game was a total blast. It certainly can be obtuse and definitely isn't an old-school shooter, but developer Pixel Titan's take on on first-person Spelunky was a challeng...

Review: STRAFE

My first look at STRAFE was from Destructoid back in 2015. When a successful Kickstarter had funded the game, I became intrigued by a marketing gimmick that centered heavily on "Bleeding Edge Graphics for 1996." I love shooters and 1996 was...

Deal: Save on Strafe before tomorrow's release

Back in 2015, a Kickstarter began for a 1990s-style first-person shooter that is now culminating in tomorrow's release of Strafe. Now under the Devolver Digital umbrella, the game is going live on Steam for $19.96 tomorrow, but bargain...

Strafe is getting three collector's editions because why not?

The upcoming retro throwback Strafe is going to have three different collector's editions available for purchase. Even though I've been enjoying the game ahead of review, I don't know how I feel about all these crazy collector's sets; at le...

Strafe sidesteps its release date, jumps back to May

Strafe and all its hyper-violent, low-polygon action will have to wait for a bit. The procedurally-generated first-person viscera simulator is being delayed by just a little more than a month. Publisher Devolver Digital sent out a pre...

Strafe is gunning for a March release date

Strafe, the retro-themed throwback shooter and my personal most anticipated game of 2017, is going to be available on March 28. Along with that information also comes absolute confirmation that the game is, indeed, procedurally generated. T...

Strafe is exactly how you remember the year 1996

I recently swung (swang?) by the Devolver Digital booth at PAX West 2016 to take a good hard look at STRAFE, a hardcore-old-school-ultra-stylized-FPS-roguelike-simulated-gorefest. I've been side-eying STRAFE since its ridiculous Kickstarter...

Strafe might be the Spelunky of first-person shooters

One look at Strafe and its influences are obvious. The first-person shooter looks like a lot of first-person shooters. Quake, Doom, and Half-Life are a few titles that developer Pixel Titans grew up revering. Game director Thom Gl...

Strafe is going to make 2017 feel like 1996 all over again

Steven Hansen... Steven Hansen. Where do I know that name from? Eh, maybe it'll come to me later. Developer Pixel Titans has teamed up with Devolver Digital for its mid-'90s-feeling first-person shooter, Strafe, and that makes a whole lot o...

Strafe will bring you to your knees

Electronic Arts once famously asked in an ad “can a computer make you cry?” Today, we have the answer. Just try to watch the latest emotionally charged trailer for Strafe, the goriest shooter of 1996, without shedding a tear or ...

This demo for Strafe didn't make my head explode

I liked the look of Strafe, a 1996-style first-person shooter. As of today, I like how it plays, too. In the final hours of the game's Kickstarter run, a PC/Mac demo has come out for backers and non-backers alike. Can it help bring in the r...

Strafe is the goriest, most realistic shooter of 1996

I am tempted to just post the email we got about Strafe (stylized as STRAFE®), because it is a masterpiece of videogame marketing. With phrases like "not for the faint of heart" and "we understand if our game is too realistic and viole...

Well Im 17 levels into DOOM 64 and I think its safe to say its my favorite of the older Which is a nice surprise, because I always assumed it was a port and never planned to play Series ranking time! DOOM(2016)>DOOM 64>DOOM>DOOM II>>>>DOOM 3
