  • Blog Post: 10 Things That Still Annoy Us About Xbox One

    When Xbox One launched in 2013, the operating system was a bit of a mess.

  • Blog Post: Hands On With Doom's SnapMap

    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.

    Doom is an iconic first-person shooter for a litany of reasons, but one of the most memorable ways it always stuck out in my mind was the fantastic array of weaponry.

  • Blog Post: A Legend Reborn: Hands-On With Doom's Single Player

    When we arrived at the Richardson, Texas headquarters of id Software last December, I thought we accidentally walked into the wrong office.
