A Group Of Hades Fans Are Staging The Entire Iliad On Twitch

Hades, the well-received roguelike from Supergiant Games, is very obviously rooted in Greek myth.

Looks like Hades might be coming to PS4 soon

A quick history lesson about Supergiant Games’ Hades reveals that Theseus was very nearly the hero of the game, rather than its most notable villain.Hades has become something of a superhit, with the roguelike action game enjoying at least 1,000,000 sales across PC and Nintendo Switch to date. The game quickly became one of the highest-rated titles of the year after a stealth launch via a Nintendo Direct Mini back in September 2020.Since then, it’s dominated the gaming conversation thanks to its likable cast, addictive gameplay loop, and impressive writing.But we very nearly saw one of the game’s most widely reviled characters star in…

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…
