Super Shotguns & demon beatdowns - Doom is the true successor we deserve

Bethesda revealed the long-awaited Doom reboot during their first ever E3 press conference. Slick and gory, insanely violent and over-the-top, it looks incredible. I am so ready, but then again I would say that.

Most of our regulars know that I used to love id Software with ferocious and slightly creepy intensity. It all started with... well, Commander Keen in Goodbye, Galaxy! if I'm totally honest... but escalated to Doom in short order. Doom was a perfect shooter; slippery-quick brutal corridor brawling that made its action the narrative, relying on incredible level, enemy, art and encounter design to tell its story, and it basically defined the genre.

Super Shotguns & demon beatdowns - Doom is the true successor we deserve

Unfortunately id found themselves sidelined after the glorious Quake days and never quite recaptured their original brilliance, because they missed the point time and time again. Doom 3 was great but it wasn't really a Doom game until the last few levels, while RAGE was half excellent corridor shooter and half lacklustre phoned-in open world. Now, after dodging a bullet, it looks like id are going back to their roots and doubling down on what they do best.

Namely: corridors full of ravenous demons to kill with shotguns. Let me explain exactly why Doom is the reboot we've all been waiting for with the aid of new footage and screenshots.

Quadruple your Wang: Shadow Warrior 2 announced with four player co-op

Need more Wang in your life? Of course you do. Shadow Warrior 2 has been officially announced and that makes us very happy indeed.

As a true sequel, however, it's not going to be more of the same. Maps are now procedurally generated, which you can play alone or with four mates for quadruple the Wang.

Uplay are selling Battlefield 4 at a huge discount and undercutting Origin

We've seen some cheap Battlefield 4 deals over the last few months, but we didn't expect Ubisoft to trump almost all of them. They're currently selling their rival's shooter for just £7.49, which is an absolute steal considering that even Origin are retailing at £14.99 along with the rest of the cheapest online sellers. Thanks to mrsusan74 @ HUKD!

Don't panic. You'll get an Origin code. Battlefield 4 is a great shooter, now that it isn't broken. Click here to read our Battlefield 4 review, and check out our video of what happened when three complete noobs took on the Naval Strike DLC.

We've met the SAS. Now it's time to meet the FBI SWAT team.

Rainbow Six Siege will feature teams of operators from around the world, including this hard-hitting American outfit. From bulletproof mats to biometrics and grenade launchers, the FBI SWAT team certainly brings "Special Weapons And Tactics" to the proceedings, but seem to cause a lot of collateral damage!

Look out for Rainbow Six Siege on October 13th.

Titanfall is still just £12.25 new on Xbox One, and still sensational

Titanfall is still a magnificent shooter. Accessible yet deep, ridiculously fun and empowering, mechanically peerless, it's well worth getting into even if the player count is now admittedly rather low. It's also an incredibly important game, directly responsible for the rush to include exciting vertical mechanics we see in most next-gen FPS titles these days.

It's a great price for a new copy. If you're on the fence, check out our Titanfall review and remember that the three excellent map packs are free!

Halo 3: ODST joins the Master Chief Collection this Friday [UPDATE: or not]

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is ready to make good on its apology package by adding Halo 3: ODST into the mix.

UPDATE: But not this Friday, apparently. "A placeholder release date for the ODST campaign for Halo: The Master Chief Collection was inadvertently listed on the Xbox Store," reads a new update from Microsoft. "We continue final testing and will make an official announcement once our release date is determined, and apologize for any confusion."

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is now £19.99 on Xbox One - time to finish the fight

Halo: The Master Chief Collection has long been castigated for its broken matchmaking, but I've encountered nothing but speedy loads and great matches over the last couple of months thanks to some great patches. I'd recommend it to any series fan as the amount of content is utterly staggering, including the four legendary campaigns that are a blast to revisit in their entirety, in co-op or cross game playlists. Well, apart from some of Halo 2's weaker missions, that is.

Go2Games are now selling a new copy for £19.99, which is a great price and one of the best we've ever seen without buying used.

Battlefield Hardline's first map pack revealed, deserves a vaguely Police-related pun

It would be criminal to... no. 'Ello 'ello 'ello, what's going on here then... argh, definitely not.

Tell you what, I'll leave the puns to you this time and stick to the basics: Battlefield Hardline has detailed its first DLC pack. Entitled Criminal Activity, you can expect four maps, two vehicles and plenty of unlockables including a nailgun.

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is a blast to the past, now only £10.89/.99 on Xbox One

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood acts as a prequel to The New Order, throwing B.J. Blazkowicz into two tough campaigns as he breaks into Castle Wolfenstein and races to stop the Nazis from possessing dangerous occult artefacts. It's solid and satisfying fare, focusing on action over story, and you can now pick it up the Xbox One version at a huge saving (as an Xbox One download key you can buy it Stateside too).

It's a stonking deal. Our resident deal hunter Buzz tells me that "it’s f****** hard," which is a good sign if you like a challenge.

Destiny is still going strong - find out why for £16.99 on PS4 & Xbox One

Destiny is still going strong - find out why for £16.99 on PS4 & Xbox One

Destiny is an odd little game. It's mechanically impeccable, the co-op is fantastic fun and the competitive multiplayer is highly underrated in this pundit's opinion. However, many gamers returned their copy, and I nearly joined them after becoming crushingly disappointed with its terrible storytelling and deleting it off my hard drive.

Thankfully I then re-installed it and still dip in on a weekly basis. To find out why, check out Forgiving Destiny: why my Biggest Disappointment Of 2014 is winning me back. Though we've occasionally seen it in short-lived £15.00 deals, this latest offer is a steal at £16.99.

Remember that the new House Of Wolves expansion is hitting soon, including some free content for those who don't own the season pass. Thanks and credit to nunn @ HUKD!

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood acts as a prequel to The New Order, throwing B.J. Blazkowicz into two tough campaigns as he breaks into Castle Wolfenstein and races to stop the Nazis from possessing dangerous occult artefacts.

It's a stonking deal and only a few pennies dearer than Nuuvem, but without the hassle of buying via a VPN. Our resident deal hunter Buzz tells me that "it’s f****** hard," which is a good sign if you like a challenge.

Halo 5: Guardians plummets down to £37.99 on Xbox One - #HUNTtheDEALS

Halo 5's #HUNTtheTRUTH campaign is still going strong, but we've managed to hunt down a killer pre-order deal for this anticipated shooter. You can currently reserve a copy for £37.99, which we'll wager is cheaper than most if not all launch day deals. Pre-orders can be risky business, but if you can undercut the RRP, it's always worth considering. Hopefully 343 will make sure the matchmaking runs perfectly!

Who's the hero and who's the villain? Why is Spartan Locke pursuing The Master Chief, and to what end? Will Zavvi actually deliver it on time? We'd love to hear your best theories.

Can Black Ops 3 fix Call Of Duty's biggest flaw?

Call Of Duty: Black Ops III broke cover over the weekend, as I'm sure you know. The hype train is already rolling in advance of its November 6th launch following the reveal trailer, news of a beta and loads of leaked intel about what Treyarch's third game plans to bring to the table.

To be frank, we're really rather excited.

Professional detachment and  Treyarch's past form aside, Black Ops III is making some very encouraging noises and seems dead-set on fixing one of the biggest problems with the series so far. The singleplayer campaign.

Can Black Ops 3 fix Call Of Duty's biggest flaw?

Call Of Duty is famed for its multiplayer, of course, but many players have forgotten that COD 4: Modern Warfare also delivered one of the most impressive FPS campaigns of the last console generation. It may have been bombastic and intense, but it also delivered a uniquely thought-provoking perspective on war, focusing on the personal cost in some unforgettable and surprisingly intimate sequences. Coupled with some sensational set pieces (All Ghillied Up will remain a timeless classic), it was an underrated component of a deservedly lauded shooter.
