Doom Eternal is finally getting its ray tracing update

Doom Eternal is finally getting its long-awaited ray tracing and DLSS update, Nvidia announced today, and they even released some lovely new ray traced footage of the game running in 4K. The shiny, realistic lighting tech has been teased and hinted at for absolutely ages, but in the run-up to the game’s launch last March, it quickly became apparent that its ray tracing support would arrive much later than planned. Happily, the new footage looks lovely, what with all those plasma beam reflections bouncing off the glass walls and polished metal floors, but honestly, when you’re ripping and tearing at…

“There are more stories to tell with the Doom Slayer” says Doom Eternal dev

Doom Eternal has just wrapped up the rebooted series’ story, the one that kicked off with Doom in 2016, but that doesn’t mean id Software is done with the series just yet.In an interview with Polygon, Doom Eternal game director Hugo Martin has dropped some hints that the series could go on to cover more, untold stories in the future – and that the story of rebooted Doom, really, could only just be beginning.“While this is the end of the story arc that began in Doom (2016), we planted a lot of stakes in the ground with that story,” Martin…

Someone remixed Hades’ soundtrack to sound like Doom, and it’s perfect

By Sherif Saed, Wednesday, 17 February 2021 15:07 GMT Doom’s unmistakable sound can evidently infect music from other games fairly well.Doom and Hades may not have much in common, beyond being critical darlings, but their music is both memorable and so fitting of their styles that it’s hard to experience them without such a core component of their makeup.But what if you could Doom-ify the Hades soundtrack? After all, the two are made up of banging medleys of guitar solos and an upbeat spirit to their soundtrack. Musician and YouTuber Geoffrey Day decided to go through the effort of turning…

Best of 2020: Ghost of Tsushima, and Sherif’s other GOTY picks

It’s probably beyond trite at this point to say that 2020 has been a wild and weird year. This goes for most of us, but for me, games often existed in their own sphere, away from whatever real-world disasters have befallen us that year. That is to say, I usually have a pretty good idea what my game of the year is each year, well before we write these.I can’t emphatically champion any of the games I played in 2020, which is rare for me. But I can tell you that I enjoyed my time the most with Ghost of…
