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.

Uber’s game is surprisingly fun for something so self-serving

While it may be a freebie, the goal seems pretty clear, to encourage more drivers to sign up to the taxi-disrupter.
