Tom leads a pretty normal life, working a nine to five coding job that typically lasts a lot longer than it should, and hating every minute of it. He’s stuffed into a little cubicle, alloted a 2-minute break each day and deals with people whom he barely cares about. It’s a familiar picture for so many people around the world who must trudge to a job they hate every day. Sadly for Tom hell on Earth literally becomes actual Hell as his entire building gets dragged into the fire-filled dimension from down under, all thanks to his company’s secret underground shenanigans with dimension-hopping technology. Things get somehow worse for Tom as a resident of Hell decides to use his entrails as a skipping rope, ripping off his arm in the process. Tom, though, doesn’t just get to die, which in many ways might be a preferable option, but rather his life is saved by a strange imp named Beezle who replaces his severed arm with a demonic one obtained from…eh, somewhere. That’s not all, though, because Beezle also holds Tom’s soul, meaning Tom has to go along with Beezle’s plans.

I need to amend my article from a short while ago detail my seven favorite games of 2016 so far, because DOOM needs to be right near the top with the Witcher 3’s Blood & Wine DLC. This is a return to a simpler time of lighting fast movement and balls-to-the-wall shooting that leaves you a little bit breathless and a whole lot happy. It’s exciting, visceral and a whole bunch of other PR friendly words that you’d probably find adorning a press release. DOOM kills it throughout the entirety of its campaign. It’s only misteps are its forays into the realms of competitive multiplayer.

Frogware have carved out an interesting niche for themselves in the form of their Sherlock Holmes series, which currently has no real competition. To my knowledge they are unique within the gaming world, which is probably why the many fans that play the series are willing to put up with its rough edges. Now Frogwares are back with another new adventure, so have they managed to tidy things up in their quest to bring more action to Sherlock? Spoiler; nope.

Right now the human race is pondering ways of achieving ways to leave our solar system and colonize other planets. Theories on how to terraform Mars or to set up a base on the moon are thrown around constantly. Despite the fact that we’ve yet to sort out our own planet, we already want to travel through space and seek out new planets and life. Stellaris, the new strategy game from genre veteran Paradox, lets you take control of humans or an alien race who embarking on their first forays into the universe, guiding them through the process of setting up a galactic empire, building a military, colonizing new planets, researching powerful technology, handling diplomacy and declaring way. It’s big and flawed and sometimes ugly, but at its core Stellaris is a compelling experience.
