• Yup, Doom runs fine on the Palm Pre

    If you were wondering the age ol’ question of “Will it run Doom?” about the Palm Pre, the answer is yes. We’re kind of thinking though that more would be surprised if the Pre wouldn’t run Doom. But anyway, one dude took it upon himself to reprogram an open-source version of the game to use WebOS’s DirectFB graphics library. So what we have here is a… Read More

  • Video: Doom Resurrection trailer (it's an iPhone game)

    John Carmack loves the iPhone SDK. Last year he said he was working on an app that will take the iPhone to its graphical limits and Doom Resurrection is probably it. Thankfully, it was developed with the current crop of iPhones in mind so you don’t have to have the new iPhone 3G S to play it. But if the iPhone 3G supports games this graphically awesome, what can the iPhone 3G S with… Read More

  • Video: Tremendous video of id Software from 1993 showing off then-in production Doom

    Attention, gamers. Set aside 30 minutes today to watch this video from 1993. In it, employees of id Software, the now-legendary developers of Wolfenstein 3D and Doom, playing an in-production version of the then-unfinished Doom. Read More

  • CrunchDeals: All id games half off this weekend on Steam

    Sweet. I know you’ve probably been getting by on that shareware version of Doom for the last 15 years or so, but don’t you think it’s time you went legit? Well, you’re never going to get a better price than on this weekend, as all id games are 50% off their already pretty low prices on Steam. Commander Keen? $2.50. Hexen? $5. Doom III? $10. And since I play them… Read More

  • John Carmack hearts the iPhone as a gaming platform

    I like John Carmack. He’s a very smart guy, primarily as a game designer but also in his sense of the industry. Doom, Quake, and Doom 3 all revolutionized the industry, and while id has been relatively quiet of late (Rage excepting), I think he’s got a handle on what might move gaming forward again. Of course, like everything else these days, it’s… Read More

  • Contest: Doom at 10,000 feet

    I just flew into Los Angeles last night, and boy are my thumbs tired. That’s not a joke. They actually are, because I beat Doom while in midair. Well, Knee Deep in the Dead, anyway. In case you didn’t know, Virgin America’s in-flight entertainment system, “Red,” includes the shareware version of the iconic shooter in addition to all the usual fixins. Bafflingly… Read More

  • Id announces Doom 4

    Like many of you, my first FPS gaming experience was Doom. It was on an old 486 with the “turbo” button engaged. It was maybe five frames a second and looked like shit, but back then it was revolutionary. Id’s bringing Doom back for a fourth time, officially announcing development is starting on Doom 4. No word on what the game’s like, but we’re guessing you… Read More

  • Interview with John Carmack, 'id Mobile' coming soon

    Interesting interview with John Carmack over on if you’re old enough to remember when Wolfenstein and Doom came out. I remember buying a $5 demo of Doom at an Egghead Software store. Remember that place? I loved that store. Remember when you had to actually go to the store to get games? Ah, simpler times. Anyway, the interview with Carmack is good. He’s starting a… Read More

  • Id Software Hops Aboard The Steam Train

    Sup guys? Digital Trends didn’t expect it and neither did I. Seems Id Software has teamed up with rival Valve to release Id titles through the Steam distribution service. The announcement comes during QuakeCon, which is currently going down in Texas. Price is key here and not just the newer titles, but all of Id’s catalog will be available for purchase. You can get Commander Keen… Read More

  • The Ten Hardest PC Games Of All Time

    While browsing Phillyist today, I came across a rather good article on the ten hardest PC games of all time. It’s a no-brainer that there are plenty of tough games out there. I mean, anyone who played the puzzle games from Sierra (King’s Quest, Space Quest, Island of Dr. Brain) knows how frustrating some of the puzzles in those titles can be. Custom PC tends to side with a… Read More

  • VideoGames > Girls

    Do you like your Sixaxis more than sex? Resistance rather than human companionship? SuperNES instead of showering? Well, here’s a video for you along with a clever little riff on Doom II being like a horrible ex-girlfriend. How dating my ex was like playing DOOM II on nightmare mode [Mingle] Read More
