  • Video The Doom Annihilation Movie Looks Absolutely Horrifying

    In more ways than one

    Take a moment to reflect on 2005 and you might remember the science fiction action horror film based on id Software's famous video game franchise DOOM, starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. It ended up being a box office bomb and was a movie the majority of fans and critics would rather forget. Years later, Johnson himself said...

    We heard you like Doom

    Last year, the unthinkable happened - the Switch got a new Doom game, the first since the '90s. A remarkable technical accomplishment, Doom gained rave reviews - but if industrious hackers have their way, it won't be the last slice of hellish FPS action we get on Switch. As reported by Kotaku, there are other Doom games...

  • News New DOOM Update Adds Motion Controls On Nintendo Switch

    Hell has never been so accessible

    Released towards the end of last year, DOOM was one of the more surprising, yet extremely welcome, additions to the Switch's early library - so much so that it starred in our most memorable games of 2017 feature.

  • News Digital Foundry Gives Its Full Analysis of DOOM on Nintendo Switch

    Impressive for a handheld shooter, but with compromises

    For anyone that's been following the game closely, it's no surprise to say that DOOM has some compromises in order to tick along on Nintendo's diminutive system. The fact it's there is impressive in its own right, but squeezing a current-gen game (originally released to critical acclaim in...

  • Soapbox DOOM is the Most Important Switch Game Yet

    A sign of good times ahead?

    DOOM is great, no doubt you'll know that if you've played it or read our review, but despite so many other incredible titles from Nintendo's fair hand, DOOM marks something far more important than what Nintendo produces on its own systems. A fully-fledged, modern shooter like this was not a common sight on a Nintendo...

  • Video See How Well DOOM Holds Up on Switch Compared to Xbox One

    Hell on Mars, but in a good way

    It's probably fairly safe to say that nobody expected DOOM to arrive on the Nintendo Switch before it was announced.

    Review DOOM

    A bloody good time

    It's 2017, and this is a review for DOOM on the Nintendo Switch. Even after having completed the 8-to-10 hour campaign, spending a few more hours in multiplayer and having tried out arcade mode, it still feels unreal. After 20 years, id's magnum opus is back on a Nintendo console. "They are rage, brutal, without mercy. But you...

  • News Bethesda Adopts "Popular Internet Saying" To Promote DOOM On Switch

    Prepare for "Nintendoom"

    Nintendo's critics have been saying that the Japanese company is on the rocks for years, and the term "Nintendoomed" is often lazily rolled out whenever the firm hits a bumpy patch in the road.  The diminishing handheld market and the dismal Wii U era saw the phrase get used on several occasions, but since the success...




  • Random This New Mod Gives GoldenEye A Feeling of Doom

    See you in hell, James

    GoldenEye 007 is a stone cold classic, even if modern TVs and wobbly N64 controller joysticks do it few favours. Credited by some as a vital release for the FPS genre on consoles, it stands as one of Rare's greatest games. Of course, the fact that licensing issues have left it in the annals of history is a pity, meaning we...


  • News The N64 Almost Got A Multiplayer-Focused Doom Sequel

    Details regarding the cancelled Doom Absolution emerge

    The N64 got an exclusive Doom title in 1997, but this wasn't the only game in the lineage that was planned for Nintendo's 64-bit system.

  • Nintendo 250x183 Doom 64

    An exclusive to the console in what is a relatively small-scale franchise, Doom 64 has been unfavourably compared to Rare's masterpieces when it's a great FPS in its own right. An abundance of well-designed levels, monsters, secrets, and weaponry is wonderfully coupled by the haunting soundtrack and dark, atmospheric scenery. This is still a joy to...
