News Comments > DOOM Closed Beta This Month; New MP Trailer
19. Re: DOOM Closed Beta This Month; New MP Trailer Mar 10, 2016, 06:05 Ozmodan
 
Just another half baked shooter, certainly is not anything like the original doom.

Definite that I will skip it. Putting demons in armor with guns is way over the top and very anti-doom.

The entire point of Doom was the scarey ugly monsters, you hide that in armor and give them guns you completely lose that atmosphere.

All I can say is, the dev team blew it big time!!!!

Well, Apple's problem is with the price and inability to make changes to the computer.

People who buy Apple computers don't grasp those issues.

total themepark, so boring.

sandbox implies you can explore, there's no exploration. it's do all the quests for your current level in your current town, then goto the next one, etc. etc. etc. fucking snoozefest.

it really is too bad, as the combat is done better than any MMO i've ever seen. very satisfying.

I want to be untethered, and just explore, and have all the quest shit just happen automatically. Same trap that so many MMOs fall under, where everyone just mashes spacebar to skip through all quest dialogue, because it's utterly boring. why even bother being tethered to this dumb archaic quest system if it's total placeholder content.

it's like they just can't escape it. Firefall tried, and then they threw that whole system out and went back to quests and grind. at first it was an open world sandbox, you could jsut wander, explore, find stuff to do, dynamic quests. Then turned into people just running from one end of the map to the other handing in quests, going to kill 10 mobs, wash rinse repeat. Oh and andtantly everyone stopped playing together, as there was no incentive unless you were all roughly the same level.

GARBAGE.

fuck MMOs. they really all are absolute shite.

N..no.... No it's not a themepark MMO
In fact it's the exact opposite. Quests are only useful for Contribution points, which are only useful if you plan on buying houses and nodes for crafting and trade, they literally give almost no EXP. Therefor doing those quests in town are completely optional to you, the only quests mandatory for progressing your class are the ones from the Black Spirit, who you can literally pull out wherever you are standing and not even pay attention to the story if you wish to.

You get most EXP from going out and grinding like back in the day in EQ and DAOC. Thats why there are grinding groups. Nothing in the game is level restricted except for how difficult the mobs may get but no one is stopping you from going and fighting them, I consistantly level off fighting groups of mobs 3+ levels higher. Gear isn't even level restricted, any gear can become end game gear if you upgrade it with the gear quests at 50.

This game is as open ended as you can just about make it. It's as close to EVE Online in Fantasy as you're going to get as far as trading and having a balanced market. It's everything ArcheAge could have been if Trion didn't shit all over it.

If you have that opinion of this game then it's because you followed the quests at the towns out of habit from all other MMO's training you to play that way. Not because the game is designed that way. I literally have a buddy who didn't pay attention to a single town and he just grinded his way doing the Black Spirit quests and fighting mobs to 50.

It most certainly IS a THEMEPARK. It has NO sandbox systems. Go lookup what a sandbox is, you certainly are very confused.

Pretty game, but the end game content is almost nonexistent. I would not waste my time with it.

Not much of a grinder from what I hear, a lot of people had a level 50 within a week of play on the beta.

So if you just want to pvp, should not take you long to get to it.

Heard someone try to call this game a sandbox when it is clearly just aonther themepark.

Bought it and have shelved it already. More like MOO 3 than MOO 2.

Waiting for the new Endless Space 2 which I think will be much better.

Agreed, it is early access, but a lot of the basic design is questionable. Not sure they can correct it enough. Combat is just lame right now. And as someone already said the AI sucks.

My suggestion, don't waste your money, these developers don't have a clue what made MOO 2 so good.

At $50 for the collectors edition, I just might give it a try. Certainly a lot cheaper than other collector editions.

If I were VW, I would pay the fine rather what lose money on electric cars. The technology still has a lot of research to go before they are viable. I have a couple friends with Teslas and their range is way below projections in cold weather and at night. Rather expensive toys at the moment.

For all the apartment dwellers out there, good luck getting the complex to put in charging stations for you.

I think the fuel cell cars are far more practical although their technology has a way to go too.

Could be a good game, but the Beta was most certainly a buggy mess. A beta is supposed to get the minor bugs out, I have to agree with
Ars, this crap was pre alpha at best.

I have a better than the recommended rig and it crawled at times and I did not have the graphic settings on high.

Good luck using a mouse, I continually had major problems with mine.

Game is just not ready for human consumption.

I was looking forward to the Division, but the beta sucked! Bad interface, big time mouse issues. This is more like a pre alpha than a beta.

Not wasting my time with it until they work the bugs out which are far too many.

Good luck moving it to a new engine with the small staff they have. They have effectively killed the game.

Typical UBIsoft, release another poorly optimized game.

I was hoping this would be a decent game, but will wait for reviews now. The graphics I have seen, just do not justify a 970 one bit nor an I7.

I have not seen one decent review on this game. I think NCSoft wasted them time bothering with this. Not something that will do well in the west.

Horrible to see children with cancer, but I think making a game of such a scenario is outright sick.

Expensive marketing gimmick on the 18 core Xeon. No game in the world would use that many cores, even the 8 core version is overkill.

Better to spend on graphics cards than waste money on that cpu.
