YouTuber’s attempt to spawn 100,000 Revenants in DOOM’s SnapMap is a metaphor for life

I know we’ve been talking about the new DOOM a lot lately, what with our review of the game, videos of Donald Trump custom levels and how goddamn awesome the story is, but this YouTuber’s ambitious SnapMap video was just too good to pass up. Not only is it a hilarious montage of trying to spawn 100,000 Revenant Demons in a customer level, but it is truly a poignant parallel to lifeR...[Read More]

DOOM does back-seat storytelling right

When I heard id Software’s Marty Stratton say in April that telling a story wasn’t really a focus for the new DOOM, I was incredibly disheartened. “We don’t put story front and centre at all,” he said. “DOOM is about doing this, fighting demons, using awesome guns.” He then went on to say that there would be a semblance of story and mystery to uncover if players...[Read More]

New Titanfall 2 details leaked

Coming via a post on the Titanfall subreddit, which has since been deleted, the leak comes from a user whose source is stated to be “in the know.” There was no mention of swords, but the user does say Titanfall 2 will include larger multiplayer maps and takes a page out of Nathan Drake’s book with the addition of grappling hooks. The grappling hook will allow for even more dynamic gameplay, as is ...[Read More]

Ron Gilbert wants Monkey Island back, asks Disney to sell it to him

Disney recently announced it would no longer be publishing their own video games, effectively cancelling their action-figure/game hybrid Disney Infinity. That’s not to say that games based around Disney properties will no longer be made, they will just be licensed out to other developers and Disney just enjoys the profits. You know, kind of like what they did with LucasArts in 2013 where the...[Read More]

Blizzard’s first foray into the first person shooter market, Overwatch, launched today and finally those some 10 million players who enjoyed the beta can stop searching for Overwatch pornography and just play the damn game. Our review of Overwatch is on its way, my fellow editor Charlie is playing the heck out of it as we speak (at least, he better be) so once he has opinions we shall share ...[Read More]

Uncharted 4 is the fastest selling PS4 exclusive to date

It’s been two weeks since the latest (and said to be last) adventure of Nathan “perfect, un-mussable hair” Drake dropped onto Playstation 4’s everywhere. OK, maybe not everywhere, but at least a fair few places as Sony announced today that Uncharted 4 sold 2.7 million copies in its first week worldwide, making it the fastest selling of the console’s exclusive titles. ...[Read More]

Let’s check out DOOM SnapMap, featuring Donald Trump and Raccoons

DOOM has been out for just over a week now, and by all accounts it seems to have been positively received. Our own Aaron Birch gave it an 8.5 in his review earlier in the week, and I find myself agreeing with him after my time with the game. DOOM is fast, brutal and a great challenge, as well as having a captivating minimalist narrative. But aside from the awesome campaign mode, and the multiplaye...[Read More]
