Feature: The worthiest reticules of all time

The best FPS games on PC

The best shooters endure. While other genres warp beyond recognition, there is something solid about the first-person shooter that makes it as dependable as a nice big AK-47. Maybe it’s the gung-ho simplicity - look down a barrel and pull the trigger. It's as fun to fire a double-barrelled shotgun from an early 90s FPS as the slick shotties of today. For that reason, this…

Doom Eternal new release date, gameplay, trailer, multiplayer

So Doom Eternal has been put back a few months into an already busy March period. Not the best of things to have to report, but at the very least, those who will be getting the game via a pre-order are now getting a port of Doom 64 as an apology. Below is an updated version of everything you need to know about Doom Eternal.

Feature: Every Stadia game coming at launch and beyond

Every Google Stadia game announced so far

Google held another one of their Stadia Connect conferences today, and this one was meant to be all about what games you'll be playing in the "scary" cloud come November. Sure enough, there were new Stadia games aplenty announced this evening, with the biggest addition being Cyberpunk 2077. To help keep track of them all, here's a list of every Google Stadia game confirmed so…

Steam Charts: Summery Summary Edition

It's never a good sign when Skyrim's back in the Charts. It means mischief is afoot. And not the good kind. In this case, it's Bethesda's Quakecon sale, meaning a whole bunch of the dreariest of usual suspects return to droop our eyelids and weary our souls. And Nier and Flibble Glibble Pants are both on sale yet again. In fact, this week's top 10…

Sigil, John Romero’s fifth episode for Doom, is out now for free

Nearly a quarter-century after The Ultimate Doom added episode four -- Thy Flesh Consumed -- to the genre-defining FPS, original Id developer John Romero gives us a fifth for free; Sigil. Nine new levels for the original Doom, so no super shotguns or (thankfully) Revenants. It's pointedly old-school demon-slaughter, claustrophobic and dark, with a look that never strays too far from the original game. While free…

Modder Superior: The many free descendants of Doom

Here is a riddle for you. When is Doom not Doom? Why, when its open-source code has gone through countless iterations and become a modern development platform in its own right! Sometimes a Doom mod outgrows its old home and breaks away as a completely standalone game. This week I'm bringing you an all-you-can-eat buffet of free, full games (and some demos) that are the…

Doom: Annihilation strafes directly to video this autumn

As chief Doom appreciator here on RPS, I feel it is my sad but solemn duty to inform you all that the new Doom movie Brock warned us about last year is still coming. This one is direct-to-video, coming from director Tony Giglio. Doom: Annihilation is due out this autumn, and for what it's worth, they do talk (briefly) about a portal to hell in…

Doom II mod Eviternity teaches everything to know about demon slaying

Doom 2 is more than just Doom these days. Some modern levels for the 90s classic FPS feature thousands of enemies, fiendish traps and difficulty beyond anything Id Software dreamt of. Eviternity, released yesterday, runs the gamut. It's a 32-level campaign split up into six five-map episodes, each with a fresh look and some new monsters. You'll start out in gloomy gothic tunnels, plinking away at…

Hallucinated HD textures and distorted deep dream tilesets

The hot new way to create high-resolution texture pack to fancy up old games is 'deep learning', feeding the original textures into a computer so algorithms can draw more-detailed versions of what they imagine the images look like. It has... varied results. I'm a hoary purist who still plays Quake pixellated without texture filtering so I'm not mad keen on these hallucinated manglings, but I…

CES 2019: Doom feels like a new game with Razer’s HyperSense haptic feedback tech

When I walked into Razer's HyperSense room at their CES booth, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Before me stood a desk and chair like any ordinary PC set up (albeit one solely comprised of Razer products) and two grinning demo guides. "Do you know Doom?" one of them said. Why, yes, I do, I like it a lot and know it well, I…

Doom went golfing and exploring Roomba brains over the holidays

Doom turned 25 last month, so it can do whatever it wants over the holidays - that includes turning into a golf game or converting the hazy memories of robot vacuum cleaners into hellish arenas. While I was away from my news-desk, programmer Rich Whitehouse cobbled together DOOMBA, a system for exporting the memories of your house's layout from a Roomba and filling it with…

Doomworld’s Cacowards showcase a dazzling 25th year of Doom mods

It's Doom's 25th birthday, and Id's classic FPS has grown up along with me. While I've enjoyed modern iterations such as 2016's reboot, the original's ever-mutating open source foundation and lively mod scene just won't let me go. When John Romero announced he was releasing a nine-level Doom episode built to 1993 spec, I shrugged, because that pales in comparison to what the Doom community…

John Romero’s about to make you a gift

Celebrating the 25th birthday of Doom's shareware episode today, Id Software co-founder and level design wizard John Romero has announced he's making a whole new episode for the seminal first-person shooter. Sigil is its name, and launching free in February 2019 is its game. Romero calls Sigil "the spiritual successor to the fourth episode of Doom," the one added in the Ultimate Doom expansion, saying…

Total Chaos and The Crimson Deed do unholy things with Doom

We're just shy of Halloween here and the stars are aligning, allowing unholy powers to warp Doom into strange, near-unrecognisable forms through the powerfully dark act of modding. Out tonight is Total Chaos, a survival horror mod so grand in its ambition that it leaves almost nothing recognisable as 'Doom', with detailed 3D environments and modern horror style. More traditional but still impressive is an…

Revenant Bus brings a very slow kind of hell to Doom 2

October is Skeleton Appreciation Month, and few people appreciate skeletons quite as much as Doom modder Marphy Black. Through his mastery of Agitating Skeletons, he has posed deep philosophical problems, made us contemplate infinity and sometimes just punch a whole lot of skellingtons. His latest is the most fiendish by far - he's probably going to make some poor Twitch streamer hate Doom, because this is…

Feature: Shoeing the VR goose?

Cybershoes’ err… Cybershoes let me run around in Doom VFR from the comfort of a wheelie chair

VR treadmills are possibly one of the daftest things on the planet. Yes, they sort of avoid that classic virtual reality hazard of tripping over headset cables and falling flat on your face, offering a way for TRUE VR immersion seekers to feel like they're really 'in the game', so to speak, but a) they're crazy expensive, b) take up mountains of room, and c)…

Steam Charts: Entirely Original Edition

OK! OK! Look, thank you, yes, yes, I know, thank you. Yes, it's very exciting that I'm here with this week's Steam Charts, but come on, please, sit down now, that's really enough. Oh, come on, all of you, you're lovely, but it's only little me. Goodness gracious!

Party like it’s 1996 in viking-themed Doom 1 mod Rekkr

When it comes to mods for old games, I love seeing just how far their structure can be pushed with modern engines, but there's still some wisdom in the old ways. Viking-themed Doom mod Rekkr takes it all the way to the old school and back again, uphill both ways in freezing snow. Built to authentic retro specs (making it compatible with even the original DOS…

Coast down The Molten Falls in Quake Champions update

Quake Champions is a fascinating experiment in remaking a game and trying to make that game both exactly like the original game but just More. The title has been impressively on top of their game, regarding monthly-ish updates and the addition of new characters, maps, and balance tweaks. They've also made the way that you and your pals explode into meat much more specific. Now,…
