Doom Returns
Doom, the game that started it all, is coming back next year. The new version, created by id Software, is currently under development. A few in-game videos are doing the rounds, and the game is available for preorder now on Steam.

More details to follow as and when they become available...

BobLAN 2015.2 Roundup
There goes another top weekend of gaming, food, beer etc. As always, huge thanks to DFC-Lynx (aka Bob) for hosting the event in such an organised manner. Retirement is obviously having its benefits :)

It was great to see everyone there this weekend, especially Foxy, Brad and Jason who had travelled a long way to make the event.

So what about the gaming? The big hit this time was newcomer Rocket League - a 4v4 football game where you each drive a car to knock the ball around. We ran a mini league, which proved to be incredibly tense towards the end. We also played quite a bit of CS:GO, BF3 and GRID. QuakeWorld made a brief appearance, but there was no room this time for TF2, Day of Defeat or HalfLife2 DM.

Trebz brought along his usual selection of board and card games, and we took time out to watch the shambles that was England playing rugby against the Aussies.

I am hoping to get a copy of the final Rocket League spreadsheet, which will go up on the BobLAN 2015.2 page, along with the completed schedule.

BobLAN 2015.2 This Week
Here's a reminder to all that BobLAN 2015.2 starts this Thursday. Please ensure that you have installed all Windows updates, Steam/Origin updates etc before you come. This is to avoid hobbling Bob's broadband on the night.

Let the gaming commence...

Fallout 4 News
Bethesda have been busy in the runup to the November release of Fallout 4...

The Fallout 4 Season Pass will include ALL DLC that will ever be released for Fallout 4. Most game season passes cover just one or two items of DLC, so this is great news for those planning to go beyond the estimated 300 hours of gameplay offered in the standard game. Read more about this on Shacknews

In addition, a series of videos are being released covering the benefits of each of the S.P.E.C.I.A.L attributes. Again, Shacknews has links to these videos. They are well worth watching, as they are done with the wonderful artistic style that goes with anything to do with Fallout.

For a bit more background trivia on the Fallout series, have a watch of this Top 10 Facts video - some interesting stuff in there!

Virgin Cable Speed Boost 2015
Virgin Media is doubling the speed of most of its broadband packages again this year. The upgrade begins on 1st October 2015, and should be completed for all customers much quicker than previous upgrades. Here are a couple of articles about the upgrade: Will this happen in time for BobLAN?!

BobLAN 2015.2 Dates
The dates for the second BobLAN of 2015 have been announced. The LAN will take place from Thursday 1st until Sunday 4th October. The usual LAN Party page and Forums Topic are up and available for use, so get those game suggestions coming in!

Steam Link and Controller
Valve have announced Steam Link and Steam Controller will be launching globally on November 15th (but available a month early to those who preorder)

Steam Link works with the new Controller to allow you to play games hosted on a PC elsewhere in the house but displayed on your main TV. The PC does all the grunt work, with Steam Link just streaming the video and audio from the PC. PC users would probably prefer a keyboard and mouse, but anything that promotes PC gaming has to be a good thing, right?!

More info and a Steam Link demo can be viewed at Steam News

Fallout 4 Announced
Fans of Bethesda's Fallout series will be happy to hear that Fallout 4 has finally been announced. The game will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, although no dates have been mentioned at this stage.

A short video shows some of the scenery you are likely to encounter in the game.

The next DLC for Goat Simulator will be a Zombie mod inspired by DayZ. The DLC is priced at $4.99 on Steam - further details and videos can be found on ShackNews.

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Announced
It was announced yesterday that the next iteration in the Call of Duty franchise will be released later this year. Developed by Treyarch, Black Ops 3 will be available on 6th November 2015.

Black Ops 3 will consist of three game modes: Campaign, Multiplayer and Zombies. The Campaign can be played single player, or with up to 4 players as a co-op campaign. Zombies will likely require you to kill zombies at some point, and Multiplayer speaks for itself.

More details to follow nearer the time.
