Doom Online Impressions After Open Beta.

It seems reviews on Steam for the Doom Open Beta have been flooded with negative impressions over the last week, mostly down to Doom's new modern features and play-style.

Dear Opium Pulses Website Users,Since the launch of our giveaways beta early this month, we've had a lot of feedback, some pointing out what is loved and some pointing out what we could have, and should have done better.We've listened to every bit of feedback and as some of you may have noticed, winner picking is currently flawed and is often sending notifications and sometimes even emails to multiple winners, regardless of how many keys the giveaway contains.This is something we aren't happy with, and are putting every effort in to making sure it works flawlessly before we officially announce this

Call of Cthulhu Game to be Released Next YearThe infamous tales from H.P. Lovecraft’s world of horror will be recreated as a video game, namely that of Cthulhu, with Cyanide Studios and Focus Home Interactive bringing just that on 2017. Focus originally teamed up with Sherlock Holmes developer Frogwares to announce the project through a bunch of concept art, though the title went silent for two years.
