Tune In: Mythbusters Meets DOOM Next Weekend

For now over a decade, Discovery’s popular show MythBusters has helped put an end to longstanding myths relating to popular culture, news stories, and everyday life. For next week’s January 31st episode, they’re taking their expertise to video games.

In this special episode dedicated to the hobby near and dear to our hearts, we’re excited that id Software’s own Tim Willits will be helping Adam and Jamie dig into an often-discussed topic of FPS games: Is it really possible for someone to carry all those health packs, guns, and even a chainsaw? Using the DOOM universe and DOOM 3 BFG Edition for reference, Tim helps the team recreate a DOOM level in real life.

Catch the episode on Discovery on Saturday, January 31st at 9/8c. For more details, visit the show’s page on Discovery.com.

  1. “The Company Rooster Teeth has already done this on their show Immersion about 2 years back.”

    Thanks Reuben!

    I just checked it out! It was funny!

  2. I would love to see the Mythbusters address some Fallout myths as well. There are plenty from F3 and F:NV that can be tackled without irradiating a few city blocks in the process.
