If you've shotgunned and boot-stomped your way through the new Doom campaign (and if you haven't yet, you should) fear not: Bethesda has plenty more demon hunting ready to go. The developer released "Free Update 4" this week, which comes with a nifty arcade mode. Every gun, suit and "Rune" upgrade is unlocked from the start, giving you the best possible edge in the battlefield. The aim is to blitz through the "streamlined" game in the shortest time possible, avoiding enemy attacks and racking up multipliers. Points are rewarded for butt-kicking your opponents, leading to a final score that you can compare with friends.
About a year ago, Blizzard revealed a chat service for all of its Battle.net multiplayer games, starting with Overwatch. Last month it killed the Battle.net name altogether, saying multiplayer support is a "normal expectation" that no longer requires its own service. Now, the World of Warcraft maker has rolled out Blizzard Voice, a chat service that works across all its multiplayer titles.

The Oatmeal's Exploding Kittens project took Kickstarter by storm and raised an impressive $8.8 million. Now, the online sensation is back on the crowdfunding platform with another card game, and it's all about building monsters that can eat horribly hairy, axe-wielding, laser-toting infants. Matthew Ingram (that's The Oatmeal's artist's name) has teamed up with his Exploding Kittens collaborator Elan Lee yet again to create Bears vs Babies. The project is already a hit after having raised $1.3 million, but that amount's bound to grow with 27 days left to the campaign.

Ubisoft's upcoming VR game Star Trek: Bridge Crew seems to instil an excitement in certain people that just can't be matched. And so it is with a heavy heart that I bring you news of the game's delay. Originally scheduled for November 29th, it's now been pushed back to March 14th, 2017.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew is a collaborative game in the vein of Artemis or Space Team. In it, you'll assume one of four positions -- captain, engineer, weapons or pilot -- and then work with your team mates to complete objectives. It's a VR-only experience, and so is only coming to PC and PlayStation 4 for now.
