Doom co-creator John Romero teases new PC shooter

And he's acting like a Jedi.

It’s been a long, long, long, long time since John Romero worked on a first-person shooter. The famed co-creator of Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, and Quake never really left the games industry, yet he hasn’t worked in the genre that made him famous ever since the disastrous 2000 release of Daikatana.

But Romero’s been talking about creating a shooter for the past few years, vaguely discussing the development process for the past few months, and now the stage is set for one hell of a reveal…

...On Monday, that is. April 25. That’s the date listed at the end of the (humorous) teaser video above, titled “The Return,” which also directs viewers to the website for Night Work Games. The site in question is similarly sparse on details but does feature this rather candid sentence:

Night Work Games - John Romero

We’ll keep an eye out for Monday’s announcement—be it screenshots, trailer, or a hologram embedded in Romero’s hair—and update you as soon as possible.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
