Doom

doom-liveaction-trailer-700x334

Hey, remember that Doom (2005) movie that starred The Rock. The one that was inspired (and I use that term loosely) from the mega hit video game franchise of the same name. You know, the one that had very little to do with the game, a bunch a hootenanny about genetics and a plot that Lloyd Kaufman would have tossed in the trash? Yeah well, this is your cousin Marvin talking, you know that new video game/movie you’ve been looking for? Well watch this!

Before you get too excited, NO, there is not new Doom movie… but they’re should be, and it should look a like this! In celebration/promotion of the newly updated DOOM video game coming out in May, director Jospeh Kosinski has delivered an outstanding cinematic live-action trailer for the latest franchise installment. It manages to do in one minute, what the entire 2005 Doom couldn’t do an entire 2 hour movie (except for the FPS scene, that was dope). (more…)

DOOM was the great-granddaddy of the modern FPS, with its legacy haunting every single game in the genre with fast, arcade-style action, a ridonculous arsenal at your disposal and hordes on hordes of science-augmented magic-assisted demons for you to carve your way into. It was also one of the most vaunted multiplayer games of its time, with tons of user-modded options and map packs, which gave the game the staying power it has until today. Bethesda seemed to be trying to maintain the franchise’s line, until they released their multiplayer gameplay trailer…

We’ve known this for a while: movies are jealous of vidya. Not just because of the more immersive experiences they can offer simply through interaction, but also because they rake in a whole lot  more cash. And with First Person Shooters being a staple of gaming since DOOM, this approach seems like a good starting point toward merging both mediums together. Hardcore Henry is definitely not the first film to attempt this (not even the first attempt by director Ilya Naishuller to pull off this exact result) but it’s definitely a step in the right direction…

Gather round, FPS youngsters. Shooter grognards, put away your DOOM Bibles! I shall tell you of DOOM, the id Software title that changed gaming forever. In the bygone year of 1993, John Romero and his nerd-cabal created the first one-man hell invasion simulator and it was a thing of red and sticky glory, that left behind a legacy that lasts until today, with a ridonculous amounts of fan-made mods. Now, it returns for the new generation and it looks…

And so ladies and gentlebastards, without further interruption, I give you the 17 biggest hits and misses of E3 2015! (more…)

With E3, the most wonderful time of year for us gamers, well underway, Bethesda hosted a press conference to demo and reveal all of their wares to the gaming press last night. While most of the attention may be on the spectacular looking Fallout 4, Bethesda also finally showed us some tantalizing footage of their OTHER upcoming big game, Doom 4. Lucky for all of you, we’ve got a few of these videos here for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to have a clean pair of pants ready for the, erm, aftermath before you slam those play buttons. (more…)

Everyone has been wondering, and hoping the Bethesda Softworks‘ big announcement at E3 this year would be Fallout 4. This is the first time Bethesda has had a showcase at the event. Now it looks like there may be something else in the works, the roll-out of the reboot/restart/revitalization of the DOOM video game franchise. This recently released DOOM teaser shows what they’ve been working on. (more…)

id Software founder and developer of the classic first person shooter Doom, John Romero, was once the hottest name in the gaming world. Sadly, after the failure of PC shooter Daikatana- the game that promised John would “make you his bitch”– Romero seemingly drifted into gaming obscurity.

Although gaming has somehow managed to move on and evolve without the man who coined the term “Deathmatch”, it looks like he’s about to return to the medium to make more bitches.

Yahoo broke the news of his return to the field:

John Romero, one of the chief architects of the seminal first-person shooter Doom, is returning to the genre that made him a celebrity.

It’s been a dozen years since Romero has made a shooter, but in an interview with Eurogamer, he confirmed plans to return to making action games, though he’s not ready to divulge a lot of details yet.

Other then adding that the game would be “MMO-ish” and the character would grow and get better over time, Romero said he “learned his lesson about talking too soon about specific game features and release dates”.

So, what do you think, is it time that the granddaddy of the shooter returns to the top of the gaming heap or are his dreams of a comeback about to get tea-bagged?
