It seems more like they're trying to use the Doom name to get some of the CoD pie, nothing more. They're not trying to make good multiplayer, they're not trying to make a Doom multiplayer, they're checking boxes for some of that market which mindlessly purchases that one game repeatedly. So they're not going to get what they want, neither will Doom fans who want multiplayer.

4. Re: Doom divides gamers in open beta free trial Apr 18, 2016, 12:05 MajorD
 

I find it curious how the focus of the game has been on the MP. Nothing really has been marketed towards the SP aspect of the game for quite some time, if all that much to begin with. It just makes me wonder if it is another case of pushing an incomplete game out the door to meet the release date.

People that have no interest in the MP of the game (which looks like it will be uninspiring and not a true to the franchise), and are only looking forward to the SP portion of the game, may end up being let down. Just my prediction, but I hope I am wrong.

Grin......I was thinking the same thing. Maybe the game was inspired by some acid trip the developer had, or a serious creative mind.

How has no one mentioned this yet? Call yourselves #MasterRace?

The game is CAPPED AT 60 FPS. On an engine level. No way to disable it.

I played one round, went 21-3, then immediately uninstalled.

Fucking console GARBAGE. it's 2016. anyone who buys this game for PC needs to be publicly humiliated.

^ this

... and add to this the fucking retarded UNSKIPPABLE intro logos and screens, of which there aren't just the usual two or three but more like a dozen or so (technical disclaimer, id logo, Bethesda logo, nVidia logo, legal disclaimer, beta disclaimer, epilepsy warning) and you have a technically inept console garbage clusterfuck of the most epic proportions on yer hands. Fuck this game. Toilet. Flush. Buh-bye.

Well, it sounds like we finally reached this point in time with DOOM: If Quake was made today...

And some of you thought it was a joke.

Well, he has the talent and background to kick out a better game than the current ones the sellout blowhards at id Software are these days.

I'm ready for him to make us his BITCH! <<<<Sorry, I had to do it, you knew it was coming anyway.

3D Monitors: A gimmick that quickly faded away.

Curved Monitors: Another gimmick that is slowly fading away.

VR Headsets for gaming and watching TV/movies: Jury is still out until I have the opportunity to test one. But, I don't think they will gain as much traction as everyone initially anticipated, and may just end up being an acquired taste.

Now, applied to educational and various types of therapies could prove to be huge.

I don't know, with 7 Days I feel like they take two steps forward and one step back. To me they've made a lot of advances in some things (particularly UI) but cater too much to the diehard crowd who wants everything in the game to be a massive grind. I revisited it again recently and couldn't get into it anymore, everything just takes way too long. We tried messing around with the settings to find a sweet spot but it just felt too grindy in a way that similar games I've played didn't.

This game struck a chord with me and I have enjoyed putting numerous hours (918hrs) into since Alpha 5. Along the way they have taken some steps backwards while testing the waters, but ended up removing/changing some of the things back for the better. Alpha 13 was no doubt an F'ing grind, where they tested the waters again, but have been improved with the release of A14.X. I’m curious if it was A13 that you felt it became a grind……

Eventually they ported the game to Unity 5.X, updated character models (textures and mocap), numerous other textures throughout, and refined the crafting menu nicely. Along the way though, they had to scale back on the crafting menu icon textures for crafting items due to memory headspace, but now I understand why.....for the console port. So another PC game had to be limited again due to consoles. Sigh…..

I like this developer and they are ‘very’ involved with the community, and still have a lot of faith in them. There are still a lot of cool features on the roadmap to beta and gold (power/lines, water lines, NPCs, quests, etc.). I would say they should have released along time ago if I hadn’t seen a lot of additions/improvements/implementations along the way, but the game continuously makes positive strides by a passionate developer.

If you check out some YouTube videos of early alpha releases (~1 – 9) and compare to videos of the current game, you can clearly see how nicely the game has matured along the way.

News Comments > DOOM Open Beta Next Week; DLC/Season Pass Plans
26. Re: DOOM Open Beta Next Week; DLC/Season Pass Plans Apr 7, 2016, 10:40 MajorD
 

Wow, this pretty much put the nail in the coffin for this DOOMed release! Could they be more ignorant of how bad this whole Season Pass/DLC is for the franchise, which is already on troubled waters?

But, I'm sure plenty of people will lap it up, and only encourage more marketing of this nature.

I may pick it up for single play (only) when it is in the bargain bin for $5.00, but then maybe I'll have forgotten about it by that time.

If it wasn't for Cutter and harlock, I'd have stopped visiting years ago - and one of them's been banned because you kept losing arguments with him.

Na, he just created another account. Meet rudra. Or was that /s as well?


Wasn't harlock Space Captain before getting banned? Not sure if he had another account name before Space Captain, but I'm sure he is tactfully lurking around here still. I think he may have hacked Cutter's account and is using that now.

Valve made $750 million last year. The math says 1.1 million isn't going to hurt them. For them it's like ordering a pizza, having it be delivered, and tipping the driver.

$1.1 million for each breach. So how many breaches were there? I guess it will be decided in Federal Court at a later hearing. /shrug

So 'maybe' they're starting to finally realize the franchise has progressively become stale and are looking for new ideas to keep the money machine oiled. So there's that, but it is pretty much just another CoD game.....

Glad they're making improvements to Edge, but still more work to do.

1) Enable Right-Click in favorites and sort as desired (name, date, etc) unless I am missing something.

2) Allow user to determine, on the fly, where to save a file you're downloading.

3) Bing plug-ins (right-click functions)
