Arena shooters are back, if the new DOOM is any indication. It looks pretty great, too—today’s new trailer showcases the shotguns, sniper rifles, and demon transformations that’ll take centerstage in DOOM’s multiplayer modes.
Tonight at Bethesda’s pre-E3 press conference, we got our first extended (extremely violent!) look at the new Doom, which will be out in Spring of 2016.
Doom 4, now just Doom, is a game a long time in the making. Mostly because at least one version of the game has been rebooted entirely. We got a brief look at the current game today, but here’s a rough look at one of the original takes, which isn’t exactly what you’d expect from a Doom game.
Apparently Doom is not the only game being ported or modded by fans over and over to run on the most unusual things. Finnish modder Pekka Väänänen was able to make Quake work on a Hitachi V-422 oscilloscope, an item that's normally used to observe electrical signals.
The game's been in development... hell for years now, but today at QuakeCon, id is showing off the first actual footage of Doom 4.
QuakeCon is moving to July this year—Bethesda's annual convention, usually held in August, will instead take place from July 17-20 in Dallas. No word on whether Doom creator John Carmack, usually the premiere speaker, will be on stage now that he no longer works for Id.
Sean Palomino, a video game developer, was moving from Texas to North Carolina in September when he suffered the most bizarre of setbacks: the moving van carrying his stuff caught fire, destroying everything he and his family owned.
The Id Software, your ego, and the super-deal.
Doom 4 is in trouble, and has been for quite some time now, according to multiple sources. Though publisher Bethesda tells Kotaku they still plan to release the highly-anticipated first-person shooter, Doom 4 has gone through at least one major reboot over the past few years, and sources say even today, five years…
id Software legend John Carmack doesn't just work technical wonders and make great games. He also spends a lot of time (and money) on Armadillo Aerospace, an amateur outfit that is trying to make a space rocket that, instead of flying into space never to be seen again, can be re-used.
Having been promised for an age, id Software finally made good last week on a pledge to release a modding tool kit for its ambitious, if slightly wonky 2011 shooter RAGE.
id's RAGE may have its fans—and I'm one of them—but even they'd admit it never really hit the heights it could, or given the developer's pedigree perhaps should have hit.
You used to be able to get Doom 3 for cheap on Steam, on account of the game being pretty damn old. But ever since the release of its updated sibling, Doom 3 BFG edition, the original is nowhere to be found. You can't buy it.
Here are some fresh QuakeCon screenshots from Doom 3 BFG Edition, a remastered version of Doom 3 that will be out in October for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
Here's a short, cute clip from id boss John Carmack's keynote address at this year's QuakeCon, in which the brutality of Super Mario Bros. 3 is compared to the more pedestrian Mario games of today.
Speaking at QuakeCon today, Id's John Carmack said they're hard at work on first-person shooter Doom 4 and it will be "done when it's done."
It's common knowledge that Gabe Newell used to work at Microsoft, right? In an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, the Valve CEO discusses learning that the first Doom outranked Windows as the most used software application:
