In many places, you can't walk into a movie theater and catch a flick or waltz into most restaurants for a meal (it's delivery or pick-up only), but you sure as heck can march yourself into GameStop.

Forget all about Crysis, the new question is, can your PC run Doom Eternal...at 1,000 frames per second? The answer is no, it cannot, though not from a lack of technical capabilities on the software side. If you have the necessary hardware—and you don't—you could run Doom Eternal at quadruple-digit framerates. This... Read more...
Perhaps one of the bigger surprises with Doom Eternal is that it will be launching on the Nintendo Switch, along with the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

It was with great disappointed that I wrote in October of last year about Doom Eternal's release being delayed until 2020, as it was originally intended to launch on November 22, 2019 amid much hype.

After eight years of waiting, Rage is finally getting a sequel.
