Summary: Doom 3 is a landmark phenomenon, no matter which way you look at it. In terms of sheer graphical brilliance, the game is simply unmatched, and will likely continue to be the reigning king for some time to come. The incredible level of detail is jaw-dropping, and the ability to scale it for playability on even the lowest of the low-end systems is a glorious miracle of optimization.
Hector: Badge of Carnage Episode 3: Beyond Reasonable Doom

Excerpt: Hector: The Badge of Carnage is a series of episodic adventure games developed by Irish developer Straandlooper Animation and published by Telltale games. The series features an obese, foulmouthed bully of a detective named Hector and his effete and dull-witted partner, Lambert. The third episode, called Beyond Reasonable Doom, continues the story of the previous games in the series, pitting Hector against a wily misanthrope named Barnsley, who has nefarious plans for...
Excerpt: It has been interesting to watch the Badge of Carnage series unfold. We Negotiate With Terrorists, released over a year ago on the iPad, was a flawed, yet extremely interesting update to the classic Monkey Island formula for PC adventure games.
Excerpt: Beyond Reasonable Doom is the third and final episode of Telltale Games’ revolting yet entertaining Hector: Badge of Carnage series. The identity of the elusive terrorist has been revealed, and he plans to unleash a biological weapon at the Clapper’s Wreake Festival, or Clapfest, an event which he has organised allegedly to improve the image of the run-down, crime-ridden town.
Excerpt: Straandlooper and Telltale Games are back with the final episode of the absurdly raunchy Hector: Badge of Carnage. For those that have visit Clappers Wreake for the first two episodes, you know...
Pros: + Strong voice acting returns, + Flawless autosave system
Cons: Pacing is horribly slow, Formulaic to a fault, Nearly all puzzles are ridiculously obvious
Excerpt: It’s normal for a game to lose some of its appeal the second time you play it, but a recent replay of Doom 3 (or ATTEMPT to replay it) proved the game an exceptional case. Let’s get one thing straight here: I NEVER enjoyed Doom 3 . Ever. Even on my initial play-through, the hilarious ineptitude of the enemy AI and level design made the experience painful enough.
Excerpt: Date: 7/19/2005 DOOM 3: Resurrection of Evil (RoE) is the first expansion pack to last year’s DOOM 3. RoE picks up the same storyline as the original, but a year or so after the events in DOOM 3. The Union Aerospace Corporation base known as Mars City has been off-limits since its near destruction at the hands of hell-spawned demons.
Excerpt: Well, it’s been some time since a superhype game came out to grace our screens, and today we celebrate that day – Doom 3 is upon us. That is, it’s been upon us since August 2nd, but that is but a minor detail. It has arguably been one of the, if not the most expected game of the year (though I imagine it ties with Half-Life 2 for this spot), and certainly of the past several years, what with the other contenders like Duke Nukem Forever fading well into oblivion.
