Watch as we rip and tear through hordes of demons and take some time to briefly take in the sights and sounds of all the new alien locales and stunning vistas that make up id Software's follow-up to DOOM (2016). Before we go back to ripping and tearing of course.

After spending three hours with a near-final build of DOOM Eternal thanks to Bethesda, we discover that id Software has been quietly building a stunning genre-defining experience that could potentially become the high watermark for the FPS genre.

Developer V1 Interactive, a new studio headed up by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto, and publisher Private Division are ready to debut a small slice of its ambitious new game Disintegration at the end of the month. Part shooter part squad-based tactical affair it blends vehicles, abilities, and shooter-meets-RTS combat in a brand-new sci-fi world.

Which is a round about way of saying "watch this space". Revealed via the all-important Twitter-sphere, Techland dropped the bombshell overnight saying that Dying Light 2 -- the studio's "biggest project to date", would need "more development time to fulfill [its] vision".

1999's Kingpin: Life of Crime was more of a lead pipe simulator (FLPS) - that due to its for-the-time overtly graphic depiction of violence, saw it get pulled from stores across the globe. Smash cut to today's hellscape of desensitised content consumers called gamers, Kingpin looks rather tame. Which makes this new 4K remaster from 3D Realms something of a novelty.

Recent rumours have been swirling around that place we call The Internet telling one and all that just maybe Left 4 Dead 3 was in development over at Valve. The classic co-op zombie shooty shoot is still brilliant to play, so a new Left 4 Dead would be like a game-sequel dream come true. But a new statement from the Big Steam makes you wonder if the company has an actual phobia of the number 3.

As part of the latest yearlong narrative dubbed 'The Dark Heart of Skyrim' this year's major expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online is called Greymoor and revolves around powerful Vampires setting up shop above and below the iconic location.

Which would see one of Sony's most recognised PlayStation 4 exclusives makes its way to another platform, in what is also being reported as potentially the first of many potential ports.

In news most of us were *kind of* expecting, CD Projekt RED has delayed the release of the hotly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 by more than five months. Citing a requirement to spend more time playtesting and bug-fixing, the studio has moved release of the game to September 17.

Our resident Ninty expert (and thus, my protege), put together a bit of a think-piece one where he sees the Big N taking their sustained Nintendo Switch success to, in 2020, and potentially beyond. It's your hand, Nintendo.

(Get it? Because they used to dabble in play cards? And we're in a console transition year... oh, never mind.)

"I can't believe a battle-loving kind-hearted Saiyan like you even exists...".

With lines like that, what's not to get excited about with tomorrow's retail release of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and this launch trailer that captures every part of the anime series and manga. Seriously, DBZ is still kicking on, like a living metaphor for its various major fight build-ups over the years.

Sometimes a headline just speaks for itself, and when the trailer you're highlighting begins with "In 1945, Hitler summoned a Nazi zombie army...", you just sort of pay attention, you know?

After years of games-specific shows like E3 and Gamescom this year we trekked all the way to Las Vegas for CES 2020 - easily one of the biggest tech events on any calendar year. Amid all the robots, artificial intelligence, and self-driving cars we managed to check out the latest in gaming tech. And judging by what we saw - 2020 is going to be great year.

And it's bloody awesome. In part because the presentation is awesome and very on-point when you consider how games are presented on-stage at press events, or now through streaming reveals and other video. Basically, this is a glimpse at what Cyberpunk would look like if it was released on PSOne.

Two of Square Enix's biggest titles of 2020 (and perhaps of this generation of hardware) have both been delayed - to allow for some extra polish and fine-tuning time. Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel's Avengers now have new 2020 release dates, with the former only pushed back a little bit.

Which is the latest major content update that also happens to close out the Battle for Azeroth story-line before the focus shifts to the next expansion - World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. The update gets its namesake from the story which focuses on the Old God N’Zoth - where the Horde and Alliance need to work together to stop "an ancient corruption [that] has taken root across Azeroth".

Originally released in 1999, Resident Evile 3: Nemesis featured the name of its menacing villain right there in the title. And with the recent announcement of a full Resident Evil 3 remake coming this year - many have been wondering how the updated Nemesis might look. The answer of course is, as menacing and frightening as always.
