We're back playing DOOM 2016

Cryoakira's preview video of the sequel to DOOM made such an impression on us that we decided to give the 2016 reboot a second chance. We must confess that back when it was released, we only took the time to record some PC and PS4 gameplay footage before moving on to other games. That's why we're back on the first episode today, in 4K this time! Also, because PC gamers always tend to believe the franchise can only be enjoyed with a mouse and keyboard, we tried our best to show that playing with a gamepad can still be pretty dynamic. Don't get us wrong, we know a mouse will always be more precise and we don't mean to show off our average skills with a controller expecting to blow your minds, but we'd like to believe it still looks fast paced enough, right?

We previewed DOOM Eternal

It may have been pretty quiet here since we left 2019 behind, but we got to be invited to a preview event concerning DOOM Eternal not that long ago and we are now allowed to share the gameplay footage we recorded on site. Let's not beat about the bush, this sequel to one of the nicest surprises of 2016 is looking very promising, with new mechanics that make sense and the same overwhelming pleasure only the mass killing of demons from hell can provide.
Note: We are sorry but the following footage was recorded in French as it was the language set up by the publisher for the preview event.

GSY REVIEW | PC, PS4, Xbox One Monday, January 20, 2020 | 12:30 PM
We reviewed The Kraken

We particularly liked The Surge 2 back when we reviewed it before its original release in September, but we have been concerned with the performance issues we have been facing since then. While our review code allowed us to play in 4K with an 80/85% resolution scaling without witnessing a single frame drop, we now cannot go over 1080p with our RTX 2080 Ti and i9 9900K and it's been the case for months. Lowering the settings makes no difference, neither did our many attempts at reinstalling the game and switching to another SSD. With that in mind, we were afraid we might not be able to enjoy the new DLC which came out last week. In the end, we did have a pleasant time with it despite the occasional drops (in 1080p!!!), but we didn't expect it to be so short. Quick explanations inside.
Note: If you're interested in The Kraken, stay away from the second part of our video, which shows its final boss.

RTX on Wolfenstein: Youngblood

The implementation of Ray Tracing in Wolfenstein: Youngblood was first presented to us just before Gamescom opened to the press back in August, but we all had to wait 5 more months to see the release of the update of the game. It was well worth the wait though, as contrary to the latest Call of Duty title which only featured ray traced shadows, Youngblood utilizes Ray Tracing at its best, which means it includes ray traced reflections too. As a result, every surface can potentially show reflections, from the very clear puddles of water to the windows of the local shops and it looks very realistic. When a mirror is dirty for example, it affects the reflection in a very natural way and the same can be said with other types of materials obviously. We will add a comparison video so you can truly see the visual benefit of the technology, but for now you can check the one we have recorded with performance DLSS. On that subject, DLSS is very impressive in this game, the image quality is excellent and performance mode really helps the framerate when playing with Vsync on for example. Two other modes are also available, one more balanced and one focused on quality and you'd be well advised to resort to DLSS instead of native 4K as Digital Foundry already pointed out.
