Last year’s DOOM was met with positive reviews and went on to become a commercial success. But what does that mean for the future of this long-running first-person shooter series? If a recent interview is any indication, it sounds like id Software is willing to explore further opportunities. Speaking to IGN during DICE 2017, Co-Director Marty Stratton said, “We left ourselves a really, really amazing canvas and a lot of colors to paint with going forward.” Though he didn’t divulge any information, Stratton talked about id’s ongoing support for DOOM‘s multiplayer, stating that the studio has “some things that we want to still do and give players.” “We try to keep a close eye on what people are talking about, it’s going to be hugely informative as we go forward with just about everything,” he continued.

By now, it seems safe to say that Doom can be played on any device a person wants. It’s been adapted for printers, ATM machines, calculators, the Apple Touch Bar and many others. But none of those devices have 370 horsepower to send you careening down a road, honking like a maniac while you blow demons back to hell. A YouTuber going by the name vexal uploaded this video tutorial showing what he claims to be a step-by-step guide to playing Doom on the console screen of a Porsche 911. That would be moderately interesting on its own but as he explains, the cars shifter, horn, accelerator and steering wheel all control the game—meaning you drive while you play. Advertisement Advertisement According to his steps, take a flash drive that contains a single file with the car’s VIN number on it. Insert the drive into the Porsche’s USB slot and start the car. That should take the computer system into debug mode. Then, insert the game (he shows Doom II but says it works with the original as well) and READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Bethesda parent company ZeniMax announced today that they’ve acquired developer Escalation Studios, who worked on Doom’s SnapMap game editor. As Bethesda explained, Escalation “has helped build and support some of the biggest franchises in the industry.” They’ve also developed some virtual reality and mobile titles. Escalation is working with other ZeniMax studios on a number of projects at the moment, and they’ll continue to work on titles across PC, console, mobile, and VR platforms going forward. Todd Vaughn, Bethesda’s VP of Development, said: We have continually been impressed with the team at Escalation that Tom and Marc have assembled. Their commitment to quality and innovation has made significant contributions to the projects we’ve worked on together, and we’re excited to have them join ZeniMax. Escalation Co-Managing Director Tom Mustaine added: We are proud of the incredible team that has helped make Escalation such a success. We can’t wait to see what the studio is capable of with the support of such a great company as ZeniMax. What do you think of the acquisition?

Bethesda VP: “Half-Baked” Games Are Just Not an Option Every gaming veteran(veteran veteran) will have a grasp on how the industry has evolved. We’ve come a long way since cartridges, and farther since shelf prices started hitting $59.99. But from thereon, developers have noted a struggle. Many games, memorable titles and those that retain legendary status, take a long time to make. As a matter of fact, games are taking longer and longer to make. Unfortunately, business pressures have left many devs without the time they need to make their intended product. And Bethesda Vice President Pete Hines recently chimed in about the stigma. “We do believe that, ultimately, if the game isn’t good and isn’t right, then this has all been for nothing,” Hines told Gamesradar. “If it’s not ready, if it’s not what it needs to be, then we don’t feel like we have any other choice. We don’t feel like it is an option or a choice to put out something that is half-baked or not all the way there.” His words are pretty much backed by Bethesda’s history. Part of what makes Bethesda itself come under scrutiny, is that they keep trying to top themselves. Objectively, one could argue for days that all their games are rich…
