Wonder how many pissed-off SWG players are gonna show up, just to tell Smedley what a jackass he is.

haha I was thinking of something along those lines but involving gratuitous violence, a plastic lighsaber and the place where no light ever shines.

For sure a horrific placeholder name of a project but Takedown strikes me as terribly plain. Kinda sound like the name of a cheap budget shooter one won't give a second look at.

Jee we have yet to get a game that uses realistic hair like that. They don't even pull it for realistic grass. Actually I would be quite content with realistic cloth and capes that don't intersect with geometry :p
Of course we have been stuck with the same technology ever since the devs decided it wasn't worth the money to make a game that doesn't run on consoles. Every time I see a manufacturer promoting its newest graphic card I want to tell him/ her "Great job but since games are not making use of your technology and probably never will, that's a cause lost on me." Oh back in the days when every year developers and manufacturers brought exciting new features. Half of which would actually make it into games. Oh your GPUs would really turn heads back then. And we would feel so compelled to change our hardware every year. I guess I have to wait for new consoles to come out... Saving money until then!

They could indeed choose a specific area of Tamriel instead of the whole continent. But they would need an interesting place to drag players and varied enough to make leveling up interesting. Iliac Bay could do it. Snow Temperate and Desert and Daggerfall Online would sound catchy.

Well if they make a MMO I hope they keep the game mechanics of the series as much as possible. Playing TOR at the moment and I am feeling like I am playing WOW again. The game is lacking a lot of ambition in that regard. Same warrior attacks same rogue techniques same sh"t all over again. I know Conan didn't do as could be expected but at least they were trying to innovate.
Bethesda has been doing this series for some time now and in spite of the fact they are more successful each time, nobody else is doing that kind of game any more. No more Ultima Underworld No more Might and Magic etc. I would see no point in playing Elderscrolls online if they don't keep what made the games successful.

Sorry but I found Crysis 1 fun to play. I liked the mix of stealth and FPS. I keep reading comments about how games are crap on this forum I'd like to see what you guys are playing these days.

But, as others have noted, the game failed at reaching greatness for so many reasons other than the graphics. The bugs? The AI? The confined gameplay? The pointless world hubs? The good, but completely underutilized vehicle component? The weak gun play? The terrible story? The weak UI? Broken economy? Boring gameplay?
The game was weak, and graphically, the highs did not surpass the lows.
Thinking Quake is the last id game I really enjoyed playing,
Ray

Ah ok what recent game did you enjoy as having better gunplay?

I hope the people that defended the screenshots in the previous thread - and even went as far as to say they looked good - are thoroughly embarrassed.

Personally I hope the end of war and poverty but I guess your hopes and ambitions in life are more reasonable. Whether there is point in sharing them on the internet instead of doing something useful is another story. Don't assume your running-nosed point of view interests grown-ups per se.

Anyway I don't know what people are expecting from Doom4. It's just going to be another first person shooter. It's not like we have been flooded with quality shooters lately. If it's got interesting level design and exciting gameplay, ( better than the current COD sheite we are treated with)that will be enough for me. I don't need it to be awesome. Good will do.

News Comments > DOOM 4 Screenshots? Cancellation Rumor Denied
63. Re: DOOM 4 Screenshots? Cancellation Rumor Denied Mar 1, 2012, 09:22 Spektr
 
Maybe those are screenshots from Half life 3? :p

Seriously, I read at the Rage engine is not competitive. How relevant is that comment? Why would an engine need to be competitive? Most developers make their own engines nowadays. Who licenses their technology nowadays, except epic and to a lesser extent crytech?
Is the skyrim engine even remotely competitive to the first crysis engine?
Personally I am tired of seeing the same engine over and over again. ( yes the Unreal 3 engine ) With its limitations the rage engine was a departure from the conformism that has pervaded in the video game business lately.

Wrecked cars? Cranes? Large outdoor areas? It doesn't look like it's set on Mars, that's for sure.

Wow.. Well observed my dear Sherlock... it's because, as somebody pointed out, the action is setting place on earth. How do I know that? Well from expecting a new take on DOOM 2 that was taking place on earth. ( I must admit I didn't recognize earth much at the time) Also from projections I made. Would ID make a new game taking place on Mars again? That would start to get a little repetitive for them and they also need a new environment to show off their new tech.

And no it doesn't look like Doom III at all. Like you pointed out so brilliantly, the action is not set on Mars. It's pretty obvious they are using the same engine as Rage. Especially in the library screenshots with the books. Look so similar that one may wonder what innovation this new game brings in terms of graphics. No new game need bring graphic innovation but it's always nice to have something new to "chew on". Especially when we are talking about Id software games! This said it's the first ID game that seems to be taking place on contemporean earth. Rage being their first game set on earth. So from a design point of view it's still a new challenge for their creative teams, used to chew out hard Sci-Fi environments. Kinda strange by the way, DOOM III is taking place in a science fiction environment, and this, supposedly a follow up, is taking place in an environment that really looks like the present day. The possibility that those are screenshots for a Rage expansion is not to be excluded at this point. A hint for that would be the name of the garage "collision" that would refer to the Mad-maxian gameplay of Rage and the collision of the comet. But I doubt it because the technology in Rage looked more advanced and the architecture less realistic.

I must add that in spite of its shortcomings I loved the gameplay in Rage and I am still thinking this was the best fps to come out in a long while. Playing it awoke some old reflexes from the old school days.

I suppose none of these teams are in charge of ironing out the bugs in TOR but a lot of silly bugs I would like squashed before all my characters reach 50 and I stop subscribing.Kinda off topic I know? but then..
