Doom 3 BFG Edition On The Way Later This Year

Soon we will be able to get the taste of the Doom movie out of our mouths, as Doom 3 is slated for re-release.

It's been seven years since the last Doom game and six since The Rock laid the smackdown on our candy asses on the silver screen. Ironically enough, the last installment in the franchise was that of Doom 3. 

John Carmack Looks Back On Wolfenstein 3D In This Commentary Video

There’s a generation of gamers out there who may have never heard or played a Wolfenstein game and that makes me feel quite old and depressed.  It’s fine for gamers to have Call of Duty as their #1 FPS game, but it’s always good to look back at what helped the FPS genre as things likely wouldn’t be where they are now if the team at id Software never created Wolfenstein in the first place.  

id Software Finally Comments On The Doom 4 Mega Leak Situation

This week an event occurred that rarely happens: art and in-game images leaked for a major game that wasn’t publicly revealed yet.  The game in question was Doom 4 and the leak was by no means small as over 150 images were released showing concept art, character renders, and basic environmental renders – all with a seemingly legit appearance along with boasting a realistic and highly unexpected art design.

The Doom 4 Mega Leak Continues With Even More Screens

Yesterday we received the rather unexpected reveal for Doom 4, albeit of the unofficial variety. Long in development within the Texas based lair of id Software, Doom 4 is a game that still had a nice amount of buzz for it but some of that faded based on leaked screenshots that were a bit meh across the board.

Rumor Of The Day: Doom 4 Is Revealed In These Leaked Screens

The internet can be a wonderful place for a variety of reasons as it brings us informative news, cool updates, and a healthy dose of humor which is sometimes unintentional.  In the world of video games the 4Chan board has become a somewhat notorious place due to its harsh criticism of certain games and news which honestly boarders on the idiotic while teetering on being downright depressing in how it portrays the industry to those in the casual field.

RAGE [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

The unique character design, impressive world that has been created and stunning use of idTech5 along with their 'megatextures' do little more than provide a breath-taking mask to otherwise bland shooter. At the end of the day RAGE feels little more than a re-skinned version of DOOM made by a group of people that were inspired by Mad Max and Borderlands.

The Pros: 

+Unique story telling

+Graphically impressive

+Awesome character design

+Unique weapons

+Solid co-op experience

+Ammo types drastically influence battle

The Cons: 

-Mediocre Feeling FPS

-Buggy, especially without install

-Doesn't have a real 'wow' factor beyond its look

-Repeative mission structure

-'Open world' is just a juncture between repeating zones

RAGE is something that I've been personally waiting for on bated breath. When it was originally announced back at QuakeCon 2007, it was the 'mega textures' and 'idTech5' showcase that started to blow everyone away. Beyond that though, the game was looking like it was going to take everything that Borderlands had already done, and ramped it up with all kinds of improvements to the style and specifically the graphics of the game.

RAGE Hands-on [PAX Prime 2011]

RAGE is a game that originally piqued my interested because of how much it looks like an upgraded Borderlands 2. With the recent announcement of the actual Borderlands 2 though, it was starting to seem a little like maybe RAGE wasn’t as exciting as I was originally thinking. The benefit though, being that its id’s newest, is that things are getting interesting for it as a unique First-Person-Shooter. 

New RAGE Gameplay Video: Gearhead Vault Mission

Bethesda Softworks has been gracious enough to release an exciting brand new gameplay video that takes a look at the "Gearhead Vault" mission in their upcoming highly anticipated game, RAGE. 

The new footage features your character accepting a mission from the Mayor of Subwaytown as he wants you to break into a vault owned by of one of the game's many different bandit clans, The Gearheads. The vault apparently contains a new ultimate power source that is created by combining Feltride and Plutonium and the mayor wants to lay claim to this new found power.

Why You Should Care: RAGE

 

Remember how I said that I’d try and feature some indie titles, maybe some older games, and potentially some newer games, from time to time, in this new series called “Why You Should Care”? Well… here’s the thing, I do fully intend on that being the case, but I’m going to have to jump out the gate here by playing a little catch-up on some titles that I have a personal interest in that are still on the horizon.
