Sweet. I still remember playing the first one back in the Voodoo 1 days. I actually played it first on an NVIDIA Riva 128 (Diamond Viper V330), but that card didn't yet support OpenGL which is what I needed for Quake 1/2 so I returned it for a Voodoo.

Anyone know where you leave feedback for this thing?


Yes, go to doom.com/alpha/feedback

Yeah the rocket damage is so weird. It feels like I have to shoot 1000 rockets at someone directly to kill them.

Yeah, that's not gonna happen. It's id. What was the last great sp game they made? I'm gonna go with Doom 2.


Quake 1 and 2 SP were great. So I'd have to go with Q2 as the last good SP game from id. Q3 was the last good MP game from id though.

Meh. It rewinds me of Q3A.

It feels nothing like Q3 and that's too bad, because if it played exactly like Q3 it would be a massive improvement.

Doom currently isn't terrible, but too Halo-ish and CoD-ish. But, the sad thing at least for me is true old school FPS is long dead. Too many console-kiddies wanting Halo and CoD. If only more people still played Quake 1-3...

Rocket jumping doesn't work AT ALL. I basically just hurt myself badly while trying.

Please let the single player be amazing.....

OK played it for 30 minutes.

The game gives me an Unreal Tournament feel kind of.

Looks very good. Very little texture paging due to the mega texture. It's still there but not as crazy as Rage.

The player is not slow as molasses like in Doom 3, but could be a bit quicker. Quake 3 speed would be nice. There is no run key that I could find.

My biggest gripe, and hopefully this is just one game mode that will be like this, is you only carry TWO weapons and one equipment (grenade or teleporter) depending on your loadout. This loadout thing is very CoD and it annoys me. The weapons should be sprinkled around the map and you use what you pick up...all of them if you can manage it.

The demon possession thing is interesting, but I feel could be better in a more open map.

The servers are not up yet, but it is possible to at least launch the game and setup controls and such.

The multiplayer screen feels sooooo much like CoD with the loadout screen, readying up wait and the random splitting into two teams.

But until I can actually play a match (in a few hours) I can't really say much but so far the menus and how all of the pre-game stuff is setup feels like CoD quite badly.

The constant spewing of childish BS like this is precisely why I haven't bought a nVidia GPU since 2002...! Ugh...! (But it's fun watching them do moronic stuff like this...;))



Huh? That made no sense at all.

What was childish? What's moronic?

There's definitely a few on this site that really makes me wonder about their mental health.

Cool. I remember playing the Nintendo 64 version of Turok 1 when it came out. The annoying thing was how much fog the game had to avoid needing to draw too much geometry.

Somehow I don't remember a PC version in 1997.

This game is totally worth buying. So much better than Dead Island (which I mostly liked).

Sounds like some serious mental issues. You might want to go get that checked by a doctor.

I was going to back this but I ended up forgetting about it. This is going to be interesting on the Rift, or any other VR HMD.

Far be it from ID to innovate in the game play arena. Looking at the gameplay in the video there is nothing more then shooting monsters. GOD ID SUCKS.


It's time to take your medicine.

Hopefully you'll get to haul cattle. My uncle drives a rig and he mostly hauls cattle. The thing about that is they move around which causes the weight of the truck to shift. This makes for a very different driving experience than hauling things that don't move.

Plus you have to not kill them by taking turns too hard.

Does anyone really give a shit if their GPU is soft to the touch? Do people really fondle their cards?


I regularly rub myself against my GPUs while I wear my Oculus Rift. Quite an amazing experience!

It's not that she's Asian (and still is) but she looked like an alien. She had a very strange look about her. She looks a lot better now.

And the fact you're trying to force what he said to sound racist is a bunch of hippie BS.

Meh. I like the PS4 controller better any way. I also like the Shield controller which works with PC, but with a cable though.

If I understand this right, NVidia Gameworks not only messes with AMD cards, it kills performance on previous NVidia generations, even though base on specs they should run faster?

Time to boycott games based on Gameworks...



Don't blindly believe everything you read, especially if it's dramatic. GameWorks absolutely does not do anything specific to hinder performance on non-NVIDIA. It's just optimized the most for Maxwell, which means any arch that's not Maxwell will not run at 100%. Including NVIDIA's older arch.

Also, PhysX is now open sourced. So there is no excuse for anyone to blame performance on that. Just take the code and tune it for your app/gpu. Developers could have actually got the source to PhysX long before it was open sourced. They just needed to have contacted NVIDIA and set all of that up.

And, no one is forcing any dev to use GameWorks. NVIDIA never pays anyone millions of dollars to use their stuff, unlike AMD (Hello Battlefield 4!). If a dev decides to use GameWorks they need to be aware of all the people that will not or can not use it and make sure their game has an optimized path for that. I guess devs these days are just lazy and/or incompetent.
