News Comments > DOOM Open Beta Extended
9. Re: DOOM Open Beta Extended Apr 18, 2016, 02:19 Jivaro
 
*shrug* I had fun. My preference would be that they get rid of loadouts completely, I think melee animations should be interruptable, and I think player movement needs to speed up a tad. All minor things that could easily change as a result of a beta like this, and they didn't keep me from having a good time with it overall.

I found myself using a custom loadout with a shotgun and a rocket launcher most of the time. The maps favored the shotgun but my own playstyle seemed to favor the rocket launcher. Probably because of all the time I spent playing Quake2 Rocket Arena. Some folks liked the lightning gun, I myself found it under-powered. I only managed to run around as the demon for the full duration twice, but I have to say...that's some fun right there...particularly when you get to take on the entire other team all at once.

The multiplayer is completely bonus material to me, so maybe that's why I am not so harsh with my judgement. I didn't expect to like it at all based on my dislike for just about every multiplayer shooter made in the last 5-6 years. I wouldn't even be able to make a good comparison with it and Halo or COD because I haven't played either since their original games. I lost interest after being disappointed with their sequels. If this game is taking bits of those games, it would appear that I am okay with whatever those bits are.

As I said before, I am pretty sure I am going to get my moneys worth out of this and Overwatch (which I loved). I tried Battleborn earlier today and came away less impressed. I only tried one character so I will reserve judgement for now...maybe try some of the other tomorrow.

Yeah, I was pretty happy with the balancing as well. I would be interested to hear specifically what balancing issues there were.

Spent time with both Doom and Overwatch this morning. I had fun with both. Probably will get both. For whatever reason both of these clicked with me. Been a long time since I played a multiplayer shooter and actually enjoyed it. I am going to get a lot of hours out of both of these.

for me it's a toss up between battleborn and overwatch. i was originally going the overwatch route, but battleborn is just more fun I think...

You aren't the first person I heard that from in the last few days. I haven't been interested in Battleborn previously, the videos I have seen have done nothing for me, but with all the chatter I should probably at least give it a look.

He claims he was denied access to their offices on April 1, 2015 when he attempted to return from his September 2014 sabbatical,

"LOL! Nice elaborate April Fool's joke. Right? Guys?" - Leslie Benzies

That's not surprising. Games companies often have very good sabbatical programs. With some studios, at the 10, 15, or 20 year point (depending) it's a full year off.

Even Starbucks has a sabbatical program. (At 10 years, btw) I wouldn't be surprised to find out that it is common in many industries. I mean, nearly nobody is working for the same place for 10+ years any longer. It's a "perk" that looks great on paper but how realistic is it for most people to plan on ever getting it?

What happened to all of you guys? All I read here anymore is personal attacks because you dont like someones opinion in the style of "oh look theres our resident troll/whiner/apologist/whatever".
One could think you guys didnt get older in the last 10 years, but instead are about to crawl back into your mothers wombs...

You could quite literally drop this comment in half of all the threads here from the last 2-3 years and it would not be out of place.

That's the median rent. Ouch.

Yeah, it is pretty nuts in the entire Bay Area/Silicon Valley..from San Jose to Marin and everything in between.

I realize the art style combined with what most likely will be a much younger age group than we have here is a bit a drawback for some, but I think many of you will find yourselves pleasantly surprised by Overwatch....if you ever get around to giving it a go.

I really need to get off my ass and complete at least one set dungeon. I have most of the sets for all of the classes this season and for whatever reason I have not really gotten into that feature.

At $14 for 9 missions, that's less then half the cost of the last expansion or the previous one which had 18-21 missions. Seems to be a fair price to me.

I agree, assuming the quality of the product is the same.

It's a shame the launch has been so shaky because they nailed the fighting mechanics. (IMO anyway)

Their only defense is to probably say she shouldn't have had pornographic material in the school in the first place. I won't be surprised if she wins, blaming the victim doesn't normally go over well.

Nudity isn't pornography and the law has already been established with regards to expectations of privacy on digital devices, but I get your point. It wasn't exactly a decision based in any sort of common sense to put nude photos on a non-password protected phone and bring it to any workplace, let alone a school.

In any event, I hope she wins. School districts here in the states don't pay teachers well enough and they fire them at the hint of scandal before even getting the facts. Sometimes threatening them with being professionally blacklisted if they don't resign....before any wrong doing has even been proven. The unions have been largely unable to do anything about it. It's part of the reason we have a teacher shortage, particularly male teachers. Who the hell wants to be underpaid, over-worked, and constantly under threat of being fired under false pretenses? It would be nice if the legal system gave the school districts something to think about when it comes time to decide whether to throw your employee under the bus or not.

When I had win 8.1 I would frequently get a critical update for the Razer software/driver. Unfortunately the update was old, but didn't recognize a newer version was installed. So if you installed the update the software would see it was out of date, update itself, and then windows update would think the software was not up to date, lather rinse repeat.

Yeah, I had that with my Anansi keyboard and my Taipai mouse. I really wanted to just drop the software app, but some reason I kept using it.
