id on DOOM 4 Images

While neither confirming nor denying the authenticity of the recent batch of screenshots purportedly from DOOM 4, id Software's Matthew Hooper took to Twitter to say that these are not representative of the game, saying: "Those images have nothing to do with what you're gonna see in Doom4. When we officially show things you'll see awesome." Thanks VG247.

The raw RGB textures were 1TB but the compiled textures were 150GB and even if they were compressed to 75GB they would still inevitably be of higher quality that the dross that shipped with the game.

So that's 18 dual layer DVDs, or 9 if compressed.
(I wouldn't care... bit it would make wing commander 4 look conservative by comparison)

Or a long download.
(especially when the game is released, and everyone is trying to get it)

Personally, I don't mind if it takes ~10x the drive space of a typical game.
The intermediary medium (disks, download, etc) is still in a shaky situation.

I wonder how that`d fly in reverse? Hmmm we won`t buy their games cause we the gamers don`t see iD as a Lead Dev team anymore. hmmmm

I suspect it would mean that they just walk away from supporting PC all together.

As far as 'multi-platform AAA game' developer's income goes, PC is a small slice already.

If the PC game market dries up, the developer reaction will probably be closer to 'meh' than 'omg'.

Yes. The TEXTURES were the reason Rage flopped. It had nothing to do with the fact that the game was like 5-8 hours long. Or that it didn't have traditional deathmatch. Or that it looked like Fallout Lite. Or that it had a shit anticlimactic ending.

No... it was the Textures.

[...]

- As far as reading forums goes, textures seems to be the biggest complaint - by a wide wide wide margin.

- The 'hu?' ending would be a distant second place.

- Not sure about the length.
I know people that spent ages screwing around doing whatever, and others that did just the minimum possible to get to the "ending".

(I mean, you could beat fallout1 in no time flat if you knew where the water chip was, and just went straight there... But most people chose to play it the long way regardless. It wasn't considered a short game just because you technically could finish it in a moment.)

- The other stuff, it's more personal preference than anything.
