Doom 3 BFG mod brings the game to virtual reality

Doom 3 BFG mod brings the game to virtual reality

Virtual reality and first person games are often thought to be the perfect pair. After all, both try to let you experience virtual worlds from the point of view of a character, rather than watching from behind or above. In reality, the perfect VR FPS is harder to pull off than you’d think, because of frame rates, controls, and game mechanics. modder Codes4Fun, however, might have just stumbled on the perfect formula to make that happen, with a mod that makes the Doom 3 BFG edition actually playable on the HTC Vive.

Doom 2 custom level that takes 3 hours to complete

Doom 2 custom level that takes 3 hours to complete

Designing and developing levels in a game is no walk in the park. That’s true even if you’re a professional but even more so if you’re just getting started. So you can imagine the creativity, hard work, and old-school persistence of Doom modder Ben Mansell, who poured no less than 300 hours making a Doom 2 level. Yes, a single Doom 2 level. But don’t let that lone digit fool you, because that very same single level will take at most 3 hours to finish.

Galaxy Note 7 becomes a deadly weapon in GTA 5 Mod

Galaxy Note 7 becomes a deadly weapon in GTA 5 Mod

Well that took long enough. Although a blazing or even exploding smartphone is no joking matter in real life, the case of the Galaxy Note 7 was something that would inevitably become the butt of jokes. Perhaps for a few years even. So, naturally, it was begging for a game mod and a certain modder by the handle of HitmanNiko was only too happy to oblige. Now Grand Theft Auto 5 players can really use the Galaxy Note 7 for what it has become: a fiery weapon of mass destruction.

Now you can play No Man’s Sky as a Doom mod

Now you can play No Man’s Sky as a Doom mod

Do you wish you could play No Man's Sky but don't have a PC (or PS4) powerful enough to run it? Maybe you're interested in the game, but turned off by all the reports about a lack of satisfying gameplay and/or the missing features that were promised before launch. Or are you one of those types that just really likes games that make use of tech from the original Doom? Well, if any or all of those statements apply, there's a mod that will be right up your alley.

Modder brings Pokemon Go to the Dreamcast VMU

Modder brings Pokemon Go to the Dreamcast VMU

Those of you who ever spent any time with the Sega Dreamcast console likely remember the system's take on the memory card: the VMU. Short for "Visual Memory Unit," the palm-sized device plugged into the controller, often displaying extra information during gameplay, and when the rare title supported it, could also be used as a stand-alone unit to play mini-games on the go. Now, over 16 years later, someone is trying to make a VMU-compatible version of Pokemon Go.

GoldenEye 007 gets HD remake as Source engine mod

GoldenEye 007 gets HD remake as Source engine mod

First released in 1997 on the Nintendo 64, GoldenEye 007 became an instant classic. Its multiplayer features were unprecedented on consoles at the time, and the game alone was worth the price of the N64. Even before the original Halo, GoldenEye 007 was the forefather of console FPSes. Now, 19 years later, and with 10 years of work from dedicated fans, a complete HD remake is available on the PC, built with Valve’s Source engine.

Xbox One S gets its own XBOOK ONE S laptop mod

Xbox One S gets its own XBOOK ONE S laptop mod

Well that was quick. The Xbox One S is barely just a few days old in the market and, as expected, it is already getting its first serious mod. Yes, the now famous (among avid gamers, at least) Ed Zarick is at it again, turning what is billed as the smallest Xbox ever into perhaps the most portable Xbox ever. Ed has finished designing and creating the first XBOOK ONE S laptop and is opening the doors to customers who want to enjoy console gaming without being stuck at home. Too much.

Tour Seinfeld’s apartment in this Doom II map

There's no end to the list of interesting hack and mods that result in the PC FPS classic Doom running on a gamut of random devices — everything from smartwatches to Doom within Doom itself — but this news is about something interesting running in Doom. Well, Doom II, to be specific. That thing is a pixellated recreation of Jerry Seinfeld's apartment from the hit '90s sitcom Seinfeld.

Modded Sega Genesis games getting official support, distribution on Steam

Modded Sega Genesis games getting official support, distribution on Steam

Fans of Sega's Genesis console (also known as the Mega Drive in Europe and Japan) have long been able to dive back into their library of classic 16-bit games on Steam, but starting next week, it's going to be even better. Complete with Sega's support, Steam is launching the Sega Mega Drive Classics Hub, which will include the ability to play modded versions of the games.

Super Mario World turned into Flappy Bird, all done by hand

Super Mario World turned into Flappy Bird, all done by hand

The one-hit wonder and addictive mobile game Flappy Bird was noted to have a few art assets quite similar to those of a Super Mario game. It was only a matter of time, then, that things come full circle. Popular for being one of the most hackable games, Super Mario World, the SNES version, has been modded through code injection to run a totally new level that plays like Flappy Bird, with the eponymous hero as the bird. While that might sound unexciting at first, the whole process was actually done manually through a series of carefully calculated moves, using nothing but a controller.

Mod lets you play Fallout 4 as Dogmeat

Mod lets you play Fallout 4 as Dogmeat

I am a huge fan of Fallout 4, but the companions in the game leave a lot to be desired in my book. I find most of them to be more of a hindrance than a help, they always block doors or walk into my line of fire like morons. I've played mostly with Paladin Danse since he can actually fight if you need to. The problem is he isn't very stealthy leaving you basically unable to sneak up on people, especially if your power armor has the stealth boy mod. A new mod for the game has been unveiled, and it lets you play the game as one of the companions, specifically the cute and ferocious Dogmeat.

Lumia 520 modded to include huge Wi-Fi antenna, CPU fan

Lumia 520 modded to include huge Wi-Fi antenna, CPU fan

Smartphones are often called "computers in our pocket", mostly because of how capable they are today compared to yesteryear's hulking boxes. But if so, should we be even surprised if someone took pains to mod one like a PC? Well, we definitely should be in this case. While most mods involve changing a smartphone's appearance or just software, a certain Mark, a.k.a. Core Down, went the extra mile to mod the hardware too. To the point that he adds a ridiculously big Wi-Fi antenna and a contrastingly small CPU fan on a Lumia 520.
