  • Blog Post: Doom: A New Vision Of Hell

    If you walk through a video game development studio, you'll likely run into a wall dedicated to concept art.

  • Blog Post: Doom: 10 Badass Moments From Our Hands-On Session

    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... More
  • Blog Post: Playing The New Doom Splattered Our Brains

    Going in to our gameplay session with Doom at Id Software I had one burning question. How would this series feel after a decade of shooter genre evolution?

    Shinji Mikami's career began at Capcom in 1990. He's known as the father of survival horror today, but his early work suggested a much different title.

  • Blog Post: Moments: Becoming A Wasteland Warrior In Fallout 3

    Fallout 3's Wasteland is a dangerous place, but that only makes it more exciting. For me, the Our Lady Of Hope Hospital was a crucible that brought out some of the best the game had to offer.
