Hands On With Doom's SnapMap
on January 29, 2016 at 04:15 PM
Id Software has released the source code for most of its games dating back to the original Doom, granting PC players the means to create their own maps, modes, and mods. Even with no defined set of rules as to how content could be created and shared, Doom's modding community erupted in popularity...
Doom: A New Vision Of Hell
on January 15, 2016 at 03:25 PM
If you walk through a video game development studio, you'll likely run into a wall dedicated to concept art. Id Software has such a wall, but it looks out of place, almost like it was stolen from a heavy metal music label. Much of the wall's pieces, like the image above, looks like album covers...
A Legend Reborn: Hands-On With Doom's Single Player
on January 13, 2016 at 03:56 PM
When we arrived at the Richardson, Texas headquarters of id Software last December, I thought we accidentally walked into the wrong office. Id’s familiar logo is painted on the wall, but the lobby doesn’t reflect the history or vibe the studio is known for. Intense white lights shine down...
Doom: 10 Badass Moments From Our Hands-On Session
on January 08, 2016 at 02:00 PM
When you play Doom, you have to discard a decade’s worth of first-person shooter conditioning. If your weapon is low on ammo, don’t even think about tapping a button to reload it, you can’t – the only way to replenish ammo is by picking it up. The tendency to duck behind cover...

Earlier today, 343 Industries revealed the new Halo 5: Guardian’s multiplayer mode, Warzone. This aims to take all the depth of a traditional Halo multiplayer match and layer in elements from the series’ single-player experience. Weeks ago, during our recent Halo 5: Guardian’s cover...
Hands-On With Blizzard's Overwatch
on November 08, 2014 at 03:38 PM
At BlizzCon 2014, I had the chance to play Blizzards upcoming team shooter Overwatch. While there’s no doubt there are some core concepts in play that have their roots in other titles, Blizzard has implemented its traditional refinement and polish to those concepts and created a fast, fun, accessible...
Kicking The Tires On The Ouya
on March 28, 2013 at 10:00 PM
The console isn't even out yet, but it's already been a wild ride for the Ouya. Since this Android based platform announced its Kickstarter campaign last July, more than 60,000 backers have contributed $8.6 million for an open platform that gives developers the autonomy to build what they want...

The GI crew sits down with Firaxis' almost-released tactical strategy game and show off what happens when XCOM finally gets its hands on laser weapons. Jason Oestreicher takes the sticks, Andy Reiner hosts, and Adam Biessener drops hard-earned knowledge from his dozens of hours of playtime on the...

on June 04, 2012 at 11:55 AM
Gears of War fans have learned to expect a content-rich experience with every installment in the series. In 2006, the original title impressed with stellar online campaign co-op coupled with numerous multiplayer modes. Its sequel introduced Horde mode, an addictive multiplayer experience that other shooters...
Unboxing The PlayStation Vita
on December 22, 2011 at 01:22 PM
I just now got my hands on the Japanese version of Sony's new handheld. In this video, we reveal the Vita's packaging, menus, front-end features, and play a couple games. So far, it seems like a well-made system with some impressive technology under the hood. The screen itself is big and beautiful...

Watch The First Three Levels Of Portal 2's DLC
on October 04, 2011 at 05:39 PM
Watch this video of me and a random online co-op buddy tackling the first three levels of Portal 2's just-released DLC pack, "Peer Review." Spoilers obviously abound, so enter at your own risk. I loved every second of my time with Peer Review's co-op. The puzzles are outstanding, GLaDOS...
Portal 2 "Peer Review" DLC Impressions
on October 04, 2011 at 04:55 PM
I just conquered the latest Portal campaign with a random stranger on Steam, and it was glorious. This free DLC pack is easily on par with what other publishers would charge $10 or more for. The just-released "Peer Review" DLC has two components: a two-and-a-half hour long (or so) cooperative...

We finally got our Japanese 3DS from the importer, so we couldn't wait to tear it open. GI's Matt Helgeson does the honors, showing you all the contents of the retail package, including the pack of AR cards that work with some cool augmented reality game functionality that's built into the...
