DOOM launch trailer ushers in ultimate brutality

Just so long as you are 18 years of age or older, you may freely view the following video game trailer. Can you imagine this version of DOOM being released back in the early 1990's? Not for the graphics - those are a generation ahead already. For the violence! The gore! The madness that drove our country insane throughout the government's rally against the playing of violent titles altogether! Bethesda wants you to have freedom.

Corsair VOID Surround Headset Review – Good price, mostly good audio

Star Wars Holochess creator Kickstarts monster-fighting game

Star Wars Holochess creator Kickstarts monster-fighting game

One of the things that makes me love the original Star Wars movies is the sheer amount of detail in them. The places you visit feel like they could really exist, and have really been lived in. One scene that always stood out for me was when R2-D2 and Chewie play Holochess. It's not vital to the plot, and the game doesn't make another appearance until The Force Awakens. However, it gives us an idea of what people do for fun in the Star Wars universe, and allows for a bit of character development.

Xbox 360’s Red Ring of Death cost Microsoft $1 billion

The Xbox 360 is perhaps one of my favorite consoles of all time. There were so many great games that I enjoyed on it, and nearly a decade later, I still have my trusty 360 that still gets used from time to time. Of course, I don't have my original launch 360. That device died long ago, as did many other of the originals. After all, the dreaded Red Ring of Death was a serious issue that lasted for years.
