Send Thatcher back to Hell in this new Doom 2 mod today

Following a short delay caused by Tennent’s Lager (actual true story), Margaret Thatcher has returned from Hell to menace us once more. Thankfully, one doomed space marine will stand up and venture into the tenth circle of Hell (aka the UK) to put the reviled British prime minister down for good. Thatcher’s Techbase is its name, and Doom 2 is the game you’ll need to play this free mod now it’s out. It is quite the thing, and even has a custom soundtrack from Paradise Killer’s composer.

Cheaters are already ruining Call of Duty: Vanguard’s multiplayer beta

Call of Duty: Vanguard’s cross-platform multiplayer beta has already been afflicted by cheaters, much to the frustration of players on both consoles and PC.

As you can see in the various videos embedded below (thanks VGC), this weekend has given cheaters the oppertunity to flex their muscles alongside players that just wanted to see what this year’s major Activision game is like.

Apex Legends will keep tap-strafing, at least for now

A couple of weeks ago, Respawn Entertainment said they were going to get rid of tap-strafing in Apex Legends, but now it seems they’ve changed their minds. Tap-strafing is a movement exploit that allows players to keep their momentum after slide-jumping, letting them make speedier turns than they should. Unfortunately for Respawn, they say getting rid of this tech has some “unexpected side effects”, so tap-strafing gets to stay in the game, for now. Read more

In-game images of Arkane Austin’s co-op vampire game Redfall have leaked online

Someone somewhere isn’t happy about this. It seems someone has either gotten their hands on Redfall or found some images of it and posted the lot online. The in-game images of Redfall apparently show an early version of the game, so it’s worth noting you aren’t seeing a finished product. Looking over the images, it appears the game will have some looter shooter elements, a skill tree, ultimate abilities, tiered weapons, different characters, and more. We won’t post the images here, but you can look them over for yourself on Twitter and Imgur. While not much is known about the…

Splitgate review: a raucous FPS that’s much more than Halo meets Portal

You might have heard Splitgate described as “Halo meets Portal“, a useful shorthand for those of us with brains too tired to describe it more colourfully as “a gun learns physics” or “Benny Hill gets a battle rifle”. However you describe it, Splitgate is a belter of a multiplayer arena shooter, born of gimmickry, yet graduating with honours, it’s a grin-delivering game of tight, gun gymnastics and wacky Loony Tunes doorways, and just the right amount of frustrating to make you sweat and launch into another scramble for the bazooka in the middle of the map.
