Are you a huge fan of Bethesda? Then this bit of news will make you happy. You can now download and play all three of the classic Doom games on your PlayStation 3’s through the Doom Classic Complete bundle!
QuakeCon is going on right now in the heart of Texas, where id and Bethesda are hosting one of the biggest LAN parties in the United States. Also at QuakeCon? Lots of good games from the publisher and the developer, including a recent reboot of the classic Apogee game Rise of the Triad. Also on display is the upcoming re-release of DOOM 3. DOOM 3: BFG Edition features enhanced graphics, 3D support, and new levels of gameplay - which is what the latest trailer is all about.
UPDATE: Sadly, it looks like some PR lines got crossed. No co-op in DOOM 3: BFG, only in the included DOOM 1 and 2 arcade titles.
Remakes and rereleases are all the rage in the gaming world these days. Why, just today SEGA published two Vintage Collections on XBLA. Now id Software and Bethesda are getting in on the action with a deluxe remake of Doom 3 and its expansion, Resurrection of Evil for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC. The newly-announced remake will not only improve on many of Doom 3's weaknesses and add new missions, it even includes Doom 1 and 2 as well. That's a Big Freaking Game collection!
Back in October of 2010, Doom was pulled from the XBLA due to licensing issues. The title is a grandfather of the modern first person shooter, and it should be experienced by, well, everyone. It's been over a year since the game was pulled from the Arcade library, but today marks its triumphant return.
One thing that's become increasingly apparent in today's age of digital downloads - they can disappear at anytime. Most times this happens because of expiring contracts between content providers. Such is the case with DOOM on Xbox Live Arcade. The game was originally released before Zenimax Media actually owned id Software.Once that contract expired there was no place for your money to go when purchased, so the game has been pulled.
It's been sometime since we announced that Doom 2 would hit Xbox Live Arcade. Well over half a year in fact. But all is not forgotten for the game, as Destructoid managed to hit up Bethesda about the game.
This month the Battlefield Report takes a look at a myriad of games that have one thing in common: you have to shoot something. Unfortunately, it's not always that easy. We list the most common game functions that help you adjust your aim.
On the Download is a new feature from Co-Optimus that wants to get you in on the low down for downloadable games. The meat of this feature will cover an experience with a current co-op downloadable game or DLC for a co-op game that I've played recently with friends.
If you've received one of many great co-op titles from this past year, you may have some questions about what kind of co-op you have in your hands or who you can play with. Our Co-Op Terminology guide is your definitive source to finding the answers to your co-op questions.
id's timeless classic DOOM game has found it's way onto another platform, the iPhone/iPod Touch. I believe this makes it the game's 4,371st different platform - including the calculator, handheld, console, downloadable, web, java, and toaster based versions.
Doom on the Xbox Live Arcade was a solid port of the game, and if my count is correct, it's the 37th system to get such a port. Yes I'm counting graphing calculators. But if you've had your fill of the first game, then it's time to upgrade to the double barreled shotty and play Doom 2 in glorious four player co-op.
For the past few Co-Op Classics columns, I've been trying to hit some of the key co-op games of the past. Double Dragon and the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game are on most people's list of classics. Today, we move on to what many consider to be the most influential game ever. This game spawned hundreds of clones, and almost singlehandedly birthed an entire game genre, the first person shooter. A technical marvel, a violent, intense atmosphere, awesome level design and downright scary foes, all wrapped up in a co-op package, make DOOM one of the greatest co-op games of all time.
Classic co-op game Doom is coming to the iPhone next week, though the version is actually based on the Doom III game. Titled Doom: Resurrection, the game is rebuilt from Doom III assets and code - no small feat.
It looks like I spoke too soon, another great co-op title just popped up on Amazon.com for a discounted price. Doom, sporting four player split screen and online co-op, is available for less than $3 on Amazon's website.
