doom and no gloom

Chris Burke Editor We knew doing a Doom cover would be risky, but we didn’t know that a portal would appear in OXM Towers and suck us all into our own personal hells. Chris’ life has turned into a turn-based RPG. He’s currently queuing at his local supermarket, waiting for his ATB gauge to fill so he can use the ‘Pay Cashier’ command. Doom is still one of our favourite ever shooters, with the Xbox One reboot from 2016 still giving our thumbs a good workout. So how excited were we to get hands-on with id Software’s latest iteration in the series, Doom Eternal? Let’s just say we couldn’t get to Hell quick enough. Find out what we make of the biggest, baddest Doom yet from page 44 this month! Of course, Doom…

the oxm team

Adam Bryant Staff writer Adam used to like horror games, but that was before he found himself in a maze where he was hunted by a Xenomorph, Mr X and that T-rex from 3D Monster Maze. Warren Brown Group art director Our art director’s hell is the most horrific of them all. It looks much like our world, but every bit of text is in Comic Sans font. It’s enough to make your skin crawl. Drew Sleep Production editor Nothing irks Drew more than a game-breaking glitch, and he’s now been cursed with them. He’s currently phased halfway through the office floor. Dave Meikleham Games editor Poor Meiks. Our very own 4K fanatic has been transported to a world where everything is in 240p resolution. It’s like the old days of YouTube, but for everything.…

Trust us, 2020 is going to be the year of Xbox, and this month Insider has news that console rivals Sony will once again be a no-show at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in June, aka E3. That means, for the second year running, Microsoft is free to completely dominate the event. Find out more about Xbox at E3 2020 on page 8 this month. Of course, what we really want to know about is the black box they’ll doubtless be showing off at E3. On page 10 this month we bring you all the latest confirmed tech specs and insider speculation on just what Xbox Series X will be capable of. One thing we’re sure won’t be bundled with Xbox Series X is any sort of virtual reality add-on. Is…

xbox to hog the e3 limelight

Microsoft was always going to have a stormer of an E3 this year. With Xbox Series X shaping up to be the most powerful console of all time (by a distance), and heavy hitters like Halo Infinite set to dominate the end of 2020, the Redmond firm was never going to struggle with content for its conference. Events have turned even more in Microsoft’s favour now, with the confirmation Sony is set to skip the LA trade show for the second year in a row. When it comes to open goals, Xbox Series X has the biggest of hitters at its (imaginary) feet. Sony’s decision not to show the PlayStation 5 or any of its upcoming games at the industry’s biggest event hands the stage to Microsoft. With the likes of…

series x targets serious tech

Now that Xbox Series X has been officially revealed in all its glory, it’s time for a heap of techie speculation. While rough estimates of what Microsoft’s new machine packs under the hood have been circulating for some time, a newly verified raft of leaks out of components manufacturer AMD suggests Series X is going to be even beefier than expected. Brace yourself for some graphics, Team Green fans. Hell, get ready for all the graphics. Last April, an intrepid Twitter user had a poke around a 3DMark benchmark database, discovering info on a new form of silicon processor from AMD that is likely to power both Xbox Series X and Sony’s PS5. Much more recently, this leak has been verified by those pixel-counting wizards over at Digital Foundry. The main…
