Classic Doom gets ray tracing, but only for Nvidia GPUs

Doom – the 1993 one – can famously run on all manner of stuff that generally has no business running games, from inkjet printers to pregnancy tests. You’ll be wanting a bonafide PC for this new mod, though, as it adds some GPU-intensive but rather lovely ray tracing to Doom’s first three episodes. There’s DLSS support too! Read more

Improve your doomscrolling with the bot tweeting through Doom

My personal top Twitter tip: add pleasant breaks to the nightmares of your feed by following a few good image accounts or bots which regularly post nice things. I like accounts which post rock formations or bots which generate landscapes. Perhaps you find comfort in violence? If so, you might enjoy interrupting your doomscrolling with the Doomscroll Doom Bot, a Twitter bot which is very slowly posting a complete playthrough of Ultimate Doom, one frame every hour.

While Xbox Game Pass Gets Better, PS Now Gets…Avengers

Outriders came out last week on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.

In Sony’s defense, the company has improved PS Now since launching it back in 2014 as a streaming-only platform similar to the more recent Google Stadia. At the…

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…
