Earlier today, the crew at id Software and Bethesda did a one hour live stream of single-player of the new DOOM.  The live preview showcased three distinct levels from three different portions of the game.

If you’re on the fence about picking up this game because you prefer to wait and see how the single player gameplay is going to look, this preview was for you.

DOOM is coming May 13th, 2016 to PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Wii U Legend of Zelda Game Also Coming to Nintendo NX April 27, 2016

The next major Legend of Zelda game has been an elusive title. It was first previewed on the Wii U several years ago but has been delayed on several different occasions.  Today, it is my unfortunate duty to inform you all that the game has been delayed again, but that there is one more important piece of information to go with this delay announcement.

Earlier today, Nintendo confirmed that their next console, currently called the Nintendo NX, would be released in March 2017. Now we know that the the same Legend of Zelda game that is coming to the Wii U will also be released for the Nintendo NX.

To me, this seems like an unfortunate side effect of continuous delays.  This is also not the first time something like this has happened to a Legend of Zelda game. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was originally intended for release on the GameCube, but its continual delays forced the game to get a simutanous release on the GameCube and the (then) newly released Wii.  This didn’t hurt fans that much, as it was a great game.  While I’m convinced that Nintendo will release a great Zelda game eventually, it is upsetting to hear about constant delays on such an anticipated product.

More information will be coming when the game is previewed later this year at the Electronic  Entertainment Expo.

The next Legend of Zelda game is coming in 2017 to the Wii U and Nintendo NX.

Nintendo has officially announced their next game console earlier today in a conference call and on their official Twitter feed.

Sadly, no other details about the console have been revealed except for the fact that it will be shown in further detail at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.

The Nintendo NX is projected for release in March 2017.
