I got the kickstarter email about this this morning, since I supported them getting a DK1 (and later a DK2). So awesome.

TigerDirect not accepting any returns is a sure way for a computer parts store to go under at light speed. I have bought many computer components over the years that were defective, especially hard drives, so there is no way I'd do business with these guys now.

One time I bought a hard drive from NewEgg and it was DOA. They sent me a replacement and it too was DOA. Finally the third time it worked. That was so annoying since there was almost a week wait each time for shipping.

Cisco is probing itself in the backdoor. I hope someone brought plenty of lube.

All of those plus 3DO, SNES, Gameboy Advance, and iPhone for me.

Actually I recently bought Doom 1 and 2 for the Gameboy Advance.

I've been playing doom most days here recently anyway, but I'll definitely play it tonight. Most likely with Brutal Doom.

I'll probably give this a go since I'll have a VR headset anyway (current DK1 and DK2 owner).

It's going to be weird not having my suppressed sniper rifle, grenade launcher, machine gun, etc with me all the time. And no vehicles or personal helicopter.

But, from what I've seen so far this looks kinda interesting. I loved FarCry 3 and 4 (as well as liked 2 quite a bit) so more of that is welcome to me.

It'll be kind of cool to get an idea what life must have been like back then, in a small way. Of course, there'll be plenty of things that aren't realistic at all - like the taming of wild beasts to sick on people on your command, lol.

I've heard the MP is not very good.. like they made it even more arcadey and Call-of-Duty-like.


This is true. Now it does have a unreal tournament feel to it as well, but they screw it up with some CoD/Halo like choices.

I hope they fixed these issues for this new alpha but I am not holding my breath.

The new UE4 Unreal Tournament is A LOT better, and free, and even modern Doom soruce ports and mods are better. I've been playing a lot of old school doom here recently. Even getting back into map editing after all these years.

Launching fire balls from your wrists. What could possibly go wrong?

At least Liu Kang cosplayers can be more realistic!

That makes me think of the old shareware days. When Doom or Wolf3D had the first episode for free. Good times.

For me Diablo 3 was just ok. Diablo 2 is where it's at.

It would be great if they would update Diablo 1 too. Last I tried to play it (which was on Win7) it didn't run very well.

From the Doom alpha, unless they make some big changes, Quake Live is the way to go for multiplayer. Or even the new UE4 Unreal Tournament, which is free.

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.
