DOOM

PlayerUnknown might be the James Halliday we’ve been waiting for

PlayerUnknown might be the James Halliday we’ve been waiting for

Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene published a video this week speaking about his next "game." The game is currently called Prologue. It's not clear at the moment if this is to be the final name of the game, or if this is sort of akin to calling the game "Demo". For now, the important bit is the idea that Greene effectively invented the gamified universe of Battle Royale (inspired by the film series), and he's on to his next project with a new game studio where a new experience is about to exist.

DOOM Eternal Invasion mode axed, but it’s not all bad news

DOOM Eternal launched a little more than a year ago, and you'd think that after delivering the base game along with two expansions, the folks at id Software would be ready to close the book on DOOM Eternal's development.

Of course, the latter can be defined as anything that has a microprocessor, which includes most non-trivial consumer electronics these days. Smart appliances are even better targets for these attempts, and that is indeed what a couple of hackers attempted in making IKEA's Tradfri smart lighting run the game, though with a bit of necessary cheating.

Nintendo Game & Watch hack runs DOOM but don’t get your hopes up

After the highly successful NES and SNES Classics, Nintendo tried its luck again with another revival of an old-school gaming system. The Game & Watch, which prefigured Nintendo's Game Boy handheld, has been given new life and, unsurprisingly, became quite a hot item, despite its price, because of its limited run. Also unsurprisingly, it has piqued the interest of hardware hackers and modders who, after a lot of work, have been able to run a custom Super Mario Bros. game and, more impressive, the original DOOM.
