News Comments > DOOM 4 Screenshots? Cancellation Rumor Denied

Looks near future, about 20-30 years. Futuristic cars and tanks and other small touches, it's not like they're going to demolish all the old buildings in the industrial zones just to put up shiny warehouses.

Quite a half-life 2 vibe actually. I'm quite looking forward to it based on these screens.

Social games are exactly what he described, exercises in spamming and microtransactions. What this guy seems to be talking about is... a multiplayer game. Fucking revolutionary!

Hunting and soldiery are also jobs. If a job is going to be in a game, it might as well be deep and satisfying.

They were pretty crap attempts at branding anyway. Should have stuck with a unified Windows name.

I thought the Solid series was over, and Rising was the next game?

I quite liked the plots. A lot of thought went into them (which really comes out in the exposition scenes of 3 and 4) even if some of the elements are a bit zany.

2's postmodernism and the whole end of 3 are some of the best bits of storytelling in gaming history.

They've given me much more value for money than minecraft. Good for him, and all good things come to an end.

Extremely profitable game in sequel shock.

The use of the classic LM model really hurts my wanting to play it. I'm not a rivet counter but

  • it looks extremely out of place among all those solar panels and geodisic domes

  • it looks fucking stupid flying sideways

  • that's not remotely how it lifts off

  • it has barely any cargo capacity


  • The dev having some creativity and making his own LM design (just one model! something that looks like it could do the things it does in-game) would make me buy this though since it looks fun.

    It's seriously worth getting to grips with the idiosyncratic UI if only to experience briefly a game of such titanic complexity. There are some tutorials on youtube (quite long, obviously) and tilesets remove the ascii confusion.

    Had a lot of fun with the beta so far, but I think I'll stop and wait for the finished version because those screenshots look amazing compared to what's currently available.

    Some porn is worth paying for. In my opinion, brazzers stuff is not, or at least, I am not interested in it.

    But does he actually think 10,000 adoring, slobbering fans are going to try to make demands that kickstarter doesn't even contractually allow them to, and that they have no real venue to make, anyway? Could that possibly be worse than a publisher that can say "if you don't do this we're shutting you down?"

    Fans are always going to have demands, luckily, as you say, they have no contractual power.

    In certain spheres of indie development, I think there's too much focus on listening to the fan. This is understandable because we went many years without any communication between fans and devs, but I think we need to move towards learning when to ignore the fans, because according to sturgeons law, 90% of their ideas will be terrible, and even the good ones will dilute the vision of the author.

    I would prefer a modern abandoned horror like Penumbra, but anything new from Frictional is good.

    Surely for valentines day it'd be better to bundle a load of 2-person co-op games?

    SP campaign! They've been practising on TF2 so that they're still in shape with their SP making skills.

    I'd like to request that future headlines about this game refer to it as "Game of Game of Thrones".

    If that's what happens to aging rock gods then plane crashes and drug overdoses look pretty dignified by comparison.
    Truly it is better (at least for your image in the eyes of history) to burn out than fade away.
