Very forgettable game.
Felt like a stereotypical console game with its crappy controls and mechanics. Even the singleplayer was not that great, because of the typical console stuff. Doing the same things over and over again, pinata-mobs, non-interactive surroundings, forced upgrades that shouldnt be there at all in that way, since it felt like you only got what other games give you from the start, and that god damn hand-holding to find your way through the levels, AKA green beacons that show you where you need to go. Oh yeah, and not being able to switch task... really... I know its a Bethesda game that always have issues with that, but seriously, this is 2016...

Crappy controls? DOOM controlled great. It felt like Q3 multiplayer, only in SP. Piniata mobs? Did you play on Easy or something? Enemies have plenty of health and do plenty of damage on the highest difficulty setting. Non-interactive environments? You mean, aside from the plentiful amount of secrets that can only be found by exploring the levels and interacting with them?

I swear, people will bitch about everything these days. DOOM is in no way a stereotypical console game. What other console shooters play like DOOM? It's run 'n gun instead of cover-based, has a ton of verticality and speed, has health and armor pickups instead of health/shield regen, lets you carry every weapon at the same time, rewards weapon switching, has levels with tons of secrets that aren't easy to find, has powerups, etc.

The multiplayer is a waste of time but the SP is great. Are there some concessions for accessibility and broader appeal? Sure. The execution system does make the game easier but it also keeps the pace up so you focus more on killing and less on running away so you can find health pickups. What's sad is that a lot of people act like they want a straight-up remake of the original Doom but if that actually happened, they would just complain that it's more of the same. Remember the RoTT remake? 'nuff said.

Yes, shitty controls. AKA predefined animations that cant be cancelled or manipulated in any way, huge hitboxes of mobs, autoaim for ledges in jumps, predefined jumping spots, even though you can jump high enough to reach others easily, etc.
Yes, pinata mobs. AKA the mobs that break up and give you tons of candy, AKA ammo and health, when you hit them or saw them in half.
Yes, non-interactive environment. AKA stuff that doesnt break or move when you hit it, is just there to be pretty. Couldnt even flush a toilet. There were no physics. Not even explosions worked properly to blow mobs back, prolly because of that stupid pinata stuff, not to mention lack of rocket jump.

I swear some people have no idea what the other guy is talking about, yet feel the urge to spew out BS and just invent accusations just for the heck of it.

And no, I dont want a remake of it. I want a game that uses todays possibilities and is not held back by weak consoles and their shitty controllers. If I want the original I can play the dozens of remakes.
I want something new, improved. But that was just a generic console shooter that people like you think was a PC game because it was a little faster than usual and threw more mobs at you.

Yeah, totally not a console game. At least P2P tell you something? Lack of LAN support? Forced achievements? But its nothing new that people have forgotten how real PC games are, after we mostly get console ports anymore.

Oh and I forgot something: The music. Doom was also very popular because of its music. I remember them saying they would have a new awesome soundtrack that will continue there where the original let off. I really was excited about that, slaughtering mobs while a nice typical Doom soundtrack is playing, gives you goosebumps. But thats not even music you hear most of the time, plus its always the same repeated crap.
Yeah, the "music" reacts very well to things happening in the game, and changes accordingly, but its still just a few tracks. I cant even say what genre it is. Dubstep? Not sure, maybe a few samples. Metal? Maybe a few accords. Its just some made up crap with random sounds.

Oh and maybe you remember me being excited while other people here already said "its going to be crap". I praised and defended it against the trolls actually, because it simply looked very promising.

If you don't get the copy i wouldn't sweat it.
From what I've seen the pc remastered rereleased version don't look that different from the original, another reason why it's probably free if you own the game

Any comparison shots remaster vs normal version yet?

https://www.reddit.com/r/Bioshock/comments/4qio3c/bioshock_remaster_comparison_screenshots/

Thanks for those, the comments in that thread align with my thoughts.
I did not see where it said if those were console or pc shots. In a few days we will know

To me, it looks like nothing more than a SweetFX/ReShade injector version.

Different textures and higher polygon models are there too.

another expansion? holy shit...

I've been thinking how much I miss this game recently but I'm sure it won't be what I remember. Vanilla EQ ruled.

Then try Project 1999. Its not vanilla (its at Velious), but its pretty much feels exactly like back in the days. Even the people are as nice.

NMS is actually pretty good... for testing overclocked PCs. Seriously. It will test stability very well. If it crashes, its not stable.
The game itself is laughable though. Its more like a technical demo, because after the 10th planet youve seen them all and did pretty much everything you will ever do.

Fuck you MS, seriously. That is the worst update you ever done, so many things broken, so many systems destroyed and needing a fresh installation, that I wont ever install that crap (yes, I actually have a choice, since I have a bug that prevents showing that update). I rather will change back to Windows 7 or 8.1 instead and screw DX12.

Man, I so wish there was an alternative. MS is going completely crazy. Its more than time to turn your back to them.

The thread explains that it happens mostly at high framerates, 70+ FPS, vsync and some other things. Also some Windows versions seem to be fine.
It also explains that Nvidia always had problems with DPC latency, yet it never was that big of a problem that you could either see or hear it. That is only happening with Pascal.
So yeah, the average user wont see it, most actually dont even realize, even if they have that problem. My friend for example bought a 1080 and has that problem, but he didnt even notice it until I pointed out the obvious. Was quite funny, and now hes mad as hell at Nvidia, even more than I was at the 4 GB lie of my 970. But Im not going to pay that much money to be an average user or ignore stuttering/crackling.


If that were to happen to you. Since you mention things like vsynch which I don't use, other things and some windows version. I'm confident my game is smooth in appearance and feel, unless there is something really less visible. But fine don't buy the card, thanks for the heads up though.

As I said, some report it. Some report it happens even with Vsync off at high FPS in games like CSGO. You can go check your DPC latency yourself with listed tools and need to understand what it is. High DPC latency is never good and WILL sooner or later make problems. I had my fair share with that before, even without Nvidia cards. The whole system will slow down and other problems will arise.
If I had a latency of over 250Ás (Nvidia cards always cause a DPC latency of about 150), I would be worried. But I guess some people just like to waste money for extremely fast stuff, only to have it crippled by things like that...
Not to mention tolerating shit like this, tells them to keep doing it in the future.
It is unacceptable, and it doesnt matter if you "feel" it or not. Its there and its a problem.

Top of the morning to you, Sir!

They fixed that about a month ago and every (beta) driver release since then has had it incorporated, of course.
Wrong. Not to mention you didnt seem to have read your own link properly, especially the last few sentences, where he clearly says its not completely fixed.
People still having massive problems and the "hotfix" didnt do crap in most cases:
overclock.net
Thats the sole reason I didnt buy a 1070 yet.

Feels exactly like I predicted. Completely sterile and after a few planets you feel extremely stupid, since what you do is the same all the time. I dont even see the point in playing.
Reminds me very much of the driving around on planets in Mass Effect 1. They were pretty much all the same too and extremely boring after a while.

Oh well. Looks like this time the Turkish military failed to preserve secularity in Turkish government.

Wonder how much more totalitarian/churchy/rightwing the Turkish government will become before it happens again.

-scheherazade

Doubt it will happen again. Erdogan replaced most high figures already years ago, but now he is going to exterminate the rest.
At least the western countrys governments showed whats going on with them, calling his rule democratic and supporting him, congratulating him "preserving democracy".
Still not enough people understanding whats going on, or who simply dont care, until its too late (for them).

Can only hope that Vulcan takes off in a big way.

I think we'll see that. Most notably, UE4, Source 2, and id Tech 6 already natively support it and Unity is working on supporting it as well. You've also got Intel, AMD, and Nvidia supporting it as well as all the tiny SOC companies (ARM, Samsung, and Qualcomm). So, for games, that covers the entire spectrum.

I was watching a development video where someone was using UE4 and explaining that, by using Vulkan, they could simultaneously release on Windows, Linux, and Android because the pipeline in UE4 could spit out executables and binaries simultaneously.


I really hope it will happen, because I am seriously getting sick of Microsofts new developed control mania. It hurts everyone except themselves.

200fps is not really surprising given the horrible console port garbage visuals. What's next? "News" that Pacman runs at 500fps on Vulkan? Yawn.

That would be pretty bad.

I really liked Overwatch, but it made me come to the realization that I'm getting old. I get destroyed and that is not fun.

I also question how long this will keep people entertained for. The progression system didn't do anything for me. I didn't feel like I was working towards anything.
Im getting old too, and I am getting destroyed too if I start a new game. But after a few days and a week the latest its very noticeable that my reaction time improves and I start to destroy again.
Older people just give up too quickly, because they think their age is the problem and they cant change that. Thats complete and utter bullshit. Youre never too old to learn new stuff or to train old stuff to be able to do it as good again as before.
But if you tell yourself "Im just too old", of course you will never be good again.

No idea what you guys are raving about again.
If people have fun playing Vanilla and other less casual expansions, then let them. And they surely arent few.

As I said, I yesterday checked these private Vanilla servers out and there are still quite a few that are up and those are PACKED with people and having queues. Even more people in the starting zones than I have ever seen on the original servers, even when the game or expansions were just released.
So obviously a lot of people want to play it like that and have a lot of fun doing so (as did I leveling to 10 in that "grindfest" so far).

An added bonus is that people are FAR FAR more friendly than on the original servers and the chat is very mature. Probably because the "mature" frustrated people like you, are not there.

I think your problem is that you cant control yourselves. Its easy to play such a game just when you have time, not level like you are on a race. You guys obviously cant do that, even today as you have "matured". You cant blame a game for your addiction. You even go as far and say the game was extremely bad with Vanilla, which means it would have never been successful. I mean I have been there myself, but I never blamed the game. I knew it was me and I just tried to compensate like the classic addict.
And seriously, if you call Vanilla WoW a grindfest, what do you call EverQuest then (which btw is also still relatively popular in the same context)?

I'm sure the timing of this announcement has absolutely nothing to do with the growing vanilla moment. #Nostalrius #YouThinkYouDoButYouDont #MakeWOWGreatAgain

In other news Nostalrius' petition to Blizzard to bring back legacy servers has 175,000 signatures, and growing rapidly. Vanilla WOW team lead Mark Kern's support and comment is the second highest.

Yeah, its kinda funny how this makes me actually want to start on a private Vanilla/BC/WotLK server. I guess I will look for one right now. There should still be enough left.
