New Doom demoed at E3: prepare for a bloodbath

If the first Doom game in 1993 had parents and religious organizations up in arms, they would probably have nothing on today's latest incarnation. Or re-incarnation, so to speak. At its pre-E3 2015 show, Bethesda, who know owns Doom maker id Software, unveiled to the public for the very first time the new Doom. Aside from getting in on the times in terms of graphics technology and player agility, this upcoming first person shooter is also getting an update in terms of gore and violence, in line with today's standards as well.

Destiny Alpha gameplay first impressions: it’s just beautiful

Destiny Alpha gameplay first impressions: it’s just beautiful

The first thing I wrote about Destiny after I’d first began to play it was "Destiny is nothing if not gorgeous." This game immediately reminds one of Killzone: Shadow Fall once inside a map, but before you there, you’re given the impression that you’ve dropped into the wrong game. I thought this was supposed to be a first-person shooter - why am I picking facial features and hair color?
