News Comments > DOOM in May
16. Re: DOOM in May Feb 4, 2016, 13:38 SirKnight
 
From what I saw in the two MP alphas, you are MUCH better off playing the old Dooms with Zandronum and Brutal Doom or Quake Live on STEAM. If Doom was like Quake Live or even UT it would be worth it.

As it is, wait until a sale and get it for the single player...if the reviews are good that is.

I've been playing A LOT of Doom 2 with GZDoom and Brutal Doom using some custom map packs. Most fun I think I've ever had with FPS's and way better than any modern FPS by far.

I was looking forward to this game, but I think I'll wait a little longer. It's not like I have a shortage on games I haven't played yet anyway.

Looks really cool. I may just have to back this thing.

Hopefully they'll add VR support.

At this point, it would be an interesting experiment for his next game (if he makes one) is to release a demo on the same day and see if piracy is just as bad or less. It seems price is not necessarily the main issue here since Braid was pirated to hell and back too.

Maybe try bringing back the shareware model. I miss those days.

Or perhaps go to the free-to-play model. Personally I hate that model and avoid most games like this but they seem to be making a lot of money that way.

I really do want a demo for this game though...

It's probably because I just woke up, but I could have sworn at first that said topless women.

I am disappoint.

Yep, I want a remastered RE2.

A remastered RE3 would be nice too. I liked that one also. The first three are really the only ones I care about.

News Comments > DOOM in June?
4. Re: DOOM in June? Jan 8, 2016, 00:11 SirKnight
 
So far the multiplayer of Doom blows. Quake 3/Quake Live is where it's at. Unless the beta blows me away, I will definitely not pre-order or day one buy the new doom. I'll just stick to Quake Live and GZDoom/Zandronum with Brutal Doom.

You have been warned...

I got the kickstarter email about this this morning, since I supported them getting a DK1 (and later a DK2). So awesome.

TigerDirect not accepting any returns is a sure way for a computer parts store to go under at light speed. I have bought many computer components over the years that were defective, especially hard drives, so there is no way I'd do business with these guys now.

One time I bought a hard drive from NewEgg and it was DOA. They sent me a replacement and it too was DOA. Finally the third time it worked. That was so annoying since there was almost a week wait each time for shipping.

Cisco is probing itself in the backdoor. I hope someone brought plenty of lube.

All of those plus 3DO, SNES, Gameboy Advance, and iPhone for me.

Actually I recently bought Doom 1 and 2 for the Gameboy Advance.

I've been playing doom most days here recently anyway, but I'll definitely play it tonight. Most likely with Brutal Doom.

I'll probably give this a go since I'll have a VR headset anyway (current DK1 and DK2 owner).

It's going to be weird not having my suppressed sniper rifle, grenade launcher, machine gun, etc with me all the time. And no vehicles or personal helicopter.

But, from what I've seen so far this looks kinda interesting. I loved FarCry 3 and 4 (as well as liked 2 quite a bit) so more of that is welcome to me.

It'll be kind of cool to get an idea what life must have been like back then, in a small way. Of course, there'll be plenty of things that aren't realistic at all - like the taming of wild beasts to sick on people on your command, lol.

I've heard the MP is not very good.. like they made it even more arcadey and Call-of-Duty-like.


This is true. Now it does have a unreal tournament feel to it as well, but they screw it up with some CoD/Halo like choices.

I hope they fixed these issues for this new alpha but I am not holding my breath.

The new UE4 Unreal Tournament is A LOT better, and free, and even modern Doom soruce ports and mods are better. I've been playing a lot of old school doom here recently. Even getting back into map editing after all these years.

Launching fire balls from your wrists. What could possibly go wrong?

At least Liu Kang cosplayers can be more realistic!

That makes me think of the old shareware days. When Doom or Wolf3D had the first episode for free. Good times.

For me Diablo 3 was just ok. Diablo 2 is where it's at.

It would be great if they would update Diablo 1 too. Last I tried to play it (which was on Win7) it didn't run very well.

From the Doom alpha, unless they make some big changes, Quake Live is the way to go for multiplayer. Or even the new UE4 Unreal Tournament, which is free.
