HDoomGuy wants the mod to be a giant, absurd orgy that the entirety of hell is in on.

“If only you could talk to the monsters,” a now-infamous review once said of the original Doom. Here’s a thought, though: what if you could fuck them?
Ever since Doom hit the PC Gaming world, people have been modding to hell and back, but one guy has his eyes set of making stay in hell and to turn into satanic type sexual orgy decided to scare the wits out of you, or turn you on, depending on what makes you tick.

The ESEA is an eSports community that runs a popular online Counter-Strike league.

In late December, its security got breached in a big way. Now the details of that breach are coming to light, with 1.5 million users affected after the ESEA refused to pay a hacker $100,000
More bad news for Counter-Strike eSports players, first 'gambling' was banned, then more recently leagues have been shutdown by their owners after Players formed their own union for better pay and sponsorship contracts, and now one of the top community sites have had all their members personal details leaked online, with lots of personal info, including cell phone numbers and private text messages. :(

OverWatch_Cheating_Law.jpg
But, lucky for now only in South Korea under new laws to crackdown on Massive Online Cheating!

Video gamers who cheat while playing online will face five years in prison under a new law passed in South Korea. An amendment to a bill promoting the gaming industry is aimed at targeting those attempting to gain an unfair advantage playing on the internet.
Anyone caught breaking the law which is backing manufacturers and programme makers will face a jail sentence of up to five years or 50million KRW ($43,000) and streams of gamers have already been banned from playing the game Overwatch, and these new laws are mainly aimed at fighting the 'makers' of the aimbotter scripts which come out of places like Korea more so than other countries, and will give the legal power for companies like Blizzard to crackdown on servers hosted in Korea and their authors, more so then attacking the...

The Wonderful Developers behind the World-Famous RetroArch Emulators need your Monthly Help!

Sadly, it has come to point that the developers behind RetroArch need monthly support to keep going on with development and maintaining their build servers for all of us to enjoy using like we have been doing for totally free since the start of the project.


There is not a retro classic gaming fan that has not at least tried out the RetroArch emulators on one of their mobile devices, or modded gaming consoles, as its one of the best out there, its become so popular that even hardware makers are illegally including it in their Arcade projects with Raspberry Pi boards or similar hardwasre, making it very hard on the developers of RetroArch to keep up with all the demand on their schedule to improve the cores and also to keep forking over tons of money each month for the servers that maintain the...

'Watch Dogs 2' effort leans on AI, as the games developer gets into hacker education.

People tend to think the world of data capture—as it pertains to their online activity—is limited to web clicks. It is not at all, and Ubisoft wants you to understand that as the gaming company promotes its new hacker-themed video game called Watch Dogs 2, which is due out Nov. 15.


Ubisoft is ramping up the hype for their new Watch_Dogs 2 and part of their new campaign is to make people more worried about how bad 'hacking' is, and how easy it is for those evil hackers to grab your smart data and use it from even something as simple as an 'selfie', and part of their 'education' adweek is to teach people about it at the same time promote their game, so check it out today!

But what about Video Gaming Consoles, well its still a 'Grey-Area', since you COULD go ONLINE with them! :)

You may have thought that if you owned your digital devices, you were allowed to do whatever you like with them. In truth, even for possessions as personal as your car, PC, or insulin pump, you risked a lawsuit every time you reverse-engineered their software guts to dig up their security vulnerabilities—until now.


For those that have been living in fear everyday of their lives in the USA because of DMCA that been around for over a decade now, they can finally breath a bit without fear of spending 10 years in jail, because finally for the next 2 years (it will be reviewed then), you will legally be able to rip open something electronic, poke around in it, and hack/mod it, as long as you OWN it, and you doing it in CONTROLLED jab, or you doing it just for your own personal...

Piracy in the PC Gaming World, may soon be making a Big Comeback

The DRM protection software currently stopping pirates from playing many of the PC's top gaming titles is again causing excitement. Partially confirmed rumors coming out of Russia suggest that following a team effort, the infamous Denuvo may have been cracked for Rise of the Tomb Raider.


At one time the Underground Warez scene on the 'net in regard to PC Gaming was one of the biggest things, and it for a while was one of the reasons Game Developers stopped doing Triple-A PC Games and instead focused their development efforts on releasing new games on dedicated consoles instead as they were more protected and harder to crack, but that changed recently over the last few years, PC Gaming has returned big time, thanks inpart of the digital Steam network by Valve in releasing games, and also in much harder impossible to crack DRM...

The New DMCA §1201 Exemption for Video Games: A Closer Look

Recently EFF scored a major victory for video game archiving, preservation and play – we got an exemption to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act for some archival activities related to video games.


For the last year and half, the EFF and various other groups have been fighting and lobbying the USA Govt. to change some rules on the DMCA act in regarding to keeping old video games working for usage in libraries and for archival storage, and of course the various big publishers along with ESA have been fighting back to keep the DMCA rules the same, no modding of consoles to be allowed.

But recently that has changed a bit, with the DMCA being modded a bit in the rules to allow bypassing of copyright and other controls to allow older games to work in local player mode only, that is if...

17 Year-Old Teen Hacker gets a 2 year suspended sentence, and an order to fight against cyber-crime!

A member of Lizard Squad, the group responsible for numerous attacks on gaming sites and platforms over the past year, has been found guilty in Finland, of a comical 50,700 charges related to hacking!


We all remember how upset we were trying to game online with our new shiny PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles last holiday season, but we could not, and millions around the world could not either, all due to the fact a hacker group called Lizard Squad was DDoS'ing the Sony PSN and Xbox Live to prevent us hard-core gamers to enjoy our next-gen consoles and the little bit of new games available.

Claims to be member of the hacking group Lizard Squad and admitted to a number of swatting of rivals

A 17-year-old hacker from British Columbia, Canada, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to 23 charges of extortion, public mischief, false police reports, and criminal harassment.


We have reported in the past of the new trend called 'swatting' where someone figures out your home address, and calls the SWAT team to get your ass kicked by the police and of course out of total surprise and shock to the victim, and we even posted stories with videos of it occurring live during an online gaming match, but now finally one of those horrible 'swatters' have been caught and he recently pleaded guilty to over 23 charges of public mischief and false police reports and seems to be member of that 'Lizard Squad' group.
