Also, do you like exploring? So do I! However, you'd better not finish a session exploring, because you lose your loot. You need to finish on a battle. Did you clear the level of all enemies and are now secret hunting? Better not need to quit before you finish, because there's no way to save.

Holy shit that is fucking retarded. What moron at id came up with this horseshit??

Basically you need to start the next area/encounter for the save to kick off right? Yeah I hate that shit.

This is FALSE. It saves when you pick up any special item/secret/power, but if you die you'll start back at the last checkpoint. Progress is still saved, so if you died jumping back from the cliff you just got the secret from you STILL HAVE IT and don't have to do the jumping/cliff again. I just did this in the game so yea, takes maybe 15-20 seconds to get back to where you died in most cases from checkpoints. You don't keep ammo/armor though.

I played for 2 hours and had to force myself to stop for some sleep since it was 1am, I LOVE opening up the map(yay for needing/having one) and seeing all the little paths branching around. Also when i'm about to leave and see a greyed out area I find myself going back to find out what I missed. I pulled the trigger because I saw the aussies playing it and well the single player is 100% different game then the MP demo. Shame they didn't release "critic" copies or such. Also saw it on sale for 45$.

Runs great on my old system 2500k(3.5ghz) win 7, gtx 770 4gb. 50-60fps depending on situation. Had that same thing as the demo on first startup where the logo's took forever to load/run, but on second startup they were fine.

Snap map looks cool and really open, but focusing on campaign first. Oh yea there's a story and it's just enough to be interesting without interfering.

Fucking $80? Suck my balls! Can't say I much care for the stylized look either.

$60.
What's the deal with people using digital deluxe prices all the time lately? Same thing was happening with Overwatch.

Because the deluxe is what used to be called the normal game. Not to mention all the "cut" dlc depending on who you ask/what game. Some games you can't even get the best play options without getting the deluxe edition.

25% off coupon over at GMG, bringing the cost to $30. If Doom wasn't launching in 2 days... ugg. Too many games.

I'd love it if I could get a 25% off DOOM. Still on the fence and that would prob tip it over. 30$ for this is way too tempting. Oh yea don't forget Uncharted 4 came out this week.

you can, its called G2A.com and its about 34 dollars on their site.

I've had a few friends say they all got screwed out of money with bad codes on G2A so i've avoided it over the years.

All they will have to do to force you to upgrade is stop patching your old OS. Don't look for conspiracies where there is no need for one.

It was 1/2 joke and 1/2 worry. If they stop patching it's not a force upgrade. It's just with all the crap they pulled on win10 it's not hard to expect something like this.

I'm in the same boat. Except I didn't even buy the last two because of this very reason. Funny thing was I was just talking to some co workers about the same thing and how I another series was deciding to skip a year about this time. I would LOVE a 4 year cycle on these with the 4th year being some kind of totally different game or new ip.

Why not just you know... put out a real beta and let people at it? I hate these weekend only beta's(really demos at this point) that leave the people that work on weekends out in the cold for looking at games.

Where's the setting to make it not feel like Halo?

So did Halo speed up by like a factor of ten in its 4th and 5th installment? Or are people seeing a weapon limit and a melee attack and able to make no other comparison?

I didn't care for the beta, but Halo's slow movement speed, regenerating health, relative player vulnerability, and atypical weapons were no where to be seen. I honestly don't see where the Halo comparison is coming from, unless its just a generic way of saying "I didn't like it."

DOOM beta movement felt slower then any Halo game i've played(that's all but the last one) Look of the armor, two wep limit,loadouts, specials, same slow speed, melee are where most of it's coming from. Weapon damage felt the same to me too except the RL felt SO under powered even on direct shots. Levels were so small you prob thought it was faster then it is.

Overwatch feels like a faster game. Playing both today and some marvel heroes, i'd say the slowest in overwatch is = to DOOM marine for speed. So sad. Only way DOOM is fast is that fact that most guns except the RL will one shot you and you respawn fast. Levels are so small that you will to be in the action as you respawn, and slow movement means no tactical combat. Don't get me started on the "finishing moves" and how they basically mean you die in animation lock.

I'm having issues with the sounds in game. The super shotgun is ultra quiet and for some reason it seems like there's no footsteps/markers for tracking people. Also the game feels really really slow. I keep wanting to hit shift to run and realize it's the push to talk key by default. When you get shot and the only queue is red flashing which blends in with the rest of the UI/level colors the sounds issues become way worse too.

10. Re: More Ubisoft Versus Vivendi Mar 24, 2016, 13:19 Linksil
 
I don't see ubisoft as not having talent... I see it as them limiting and keeping the talent to games which are considered safe. Haven't seen anything really great/new out of them in a long time. I mean I have a good time playing a lot of the games(would be better without uplay) but there's a LOT of potential that's squashed. Never go into a ubi game with much hope for innovation.

Reading this and thinking about what I know of the company from other press it seems like they're talking about two different things.

It might be interesting way to help settle the whole console wars. But then again I can see them blaming lag on each others networks.

I can't be the only one thinking the voice over for kill(sprees?) Is just horrible!. If they let us edit it that's fine... but right now it sounds like someone recorded that on a monday morning with no coffee.

Yea without an open beta to feel it myself I have a really hard time being sold on this new "fast" MP. I still compare everything to tribes in terms of speed.

Right now from what I have heard it's the same as shooting down/at a plane. IE $500,000 fine and up to 20 years in jail. Since they are considered small aircraft.

I am slightly excited about this, but it's going to be a very hard buy without some type of sale. The gameplay looks fun until they throw in all the "kill" animations. I know you trigger them yourself... but when it's the only way to get extra health/ammo to fly out of the corpses it seems like you'll be forced to do it a lot. I know the animators need to be paid but there are only so many times you can watch the same stuff happen.
