Review: Rad Rodgers

First impressions count for a lot in gaming. Sometimes a bad launch can tarnish an otherwise solid game from ever recovering, but there are some rare instances where a title gets a second shot. Rad Rodgers happens to be one such game. I rev...

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 ...

Early Access Review: DUSK

For the last decade or so, the first-person shooter genre has been dominated by the likes of Call of Duty and Battlefield. These two behemoths of gaming started a trend of “ultra-realistic” shooters that basically all play the s...

Wolfenstein II's first DLC episode is now available

This snuck right up on me, but the first DLC episode for Wolfenstein II is now available for download on all platforms. Season pass owners should already have the content, but if you want to purchase this separately it will set you back $9....

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 ...

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,...

Bethesda's revival of arena shooters, Quake Champions, will be leaving its closed beta phase on August 22 and entering into Early Access on Steam and through Bethesda's own game launcher (which I didn't realize was a thing). While the game ...

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...

Who was Doomguy? John Romero has a funny story about that

Behind-the-scenes Doom stuff is my jam, and I like to think plenty of you feel the same way. With that in mind, John Romero has shared an anecdote about the box art that you need to see. It's a good one. The original plan, back in 1993, was...

This Quake vinyl could be the perfect drug

There was once a time when video game soundtracks weren't fully orchestrated or composed by rock musicians. Technology limited composers to MIDI tunes, so there wasn't a need to call in more "professional" acts to spruce up your game. ID So...

This week is your chance to try Quake Champions

Quake Champions has been off doing its thing with a closed beta test. Maybe you signed up. Maybe you didn't. Maybe you wanted to, but you tend to have terrible luck getting accepted for these sorts of things, so you didn't even bother. This...

Quake Champions ain't your granddad's Quake

I’m a big fan of old-school shooters. I cut my teeth on them in my youth and I still get a kick out of how ultra fast paced and skill based those older games were. I can return to classics like Unreal Tournament and Quake III Arena wi...
