News Comments > DOOM Single-Player Video
5. Re: DOOM Single-Player Video Apr 28, 2016, 20:49 ItBurn
 
A lot of the problems that were present in the last gameplay video still seem to be here, but one thing that seems a bit better than I expected is the executions. It seems that monsters go into "execution mode" only if your shot doesn't kill them. It's like, if they're close enough to death, they'll go into this "staggered" mode where you can use the melee if you want. It doesn't sound like it'll stop gameplay as much as I thought. It still kinda sucks and breaks the immersion that they flash red and blue and stuff.

Also, it looks like there's no textures, just colored polygons, like all the Id engine games. The art style is also pretty generic.

I think it'll probably be fun, but the flaws and visual style look like they'll make this just an average, forgettable game.

I think this comment arises because there's really no way to play the game as a "bad guy." All of the dialog choices basically move you along the same path of being a hero.

There's indeed very little RPG left in Fallout 4 and I think this is agreed by almost everyone. Not saying it's a bad game.

I've watched the trailer and read the announcement, but I still have no idea what this edition has that is new.

I love metroidvanias, but I dunno, I don't like the look of this one and I'm not sure about the mechanics and how it seems to play.

If you actually WATCHED the trailer it flat out TELLS you what is new.

Watched the intro and damn..... beautiful game, sad story start.

OK, I watched it again. I guess I was expecting more... It's basically the exact same game, but with DLC I guess, not really a remaster like they claim.

The system is nice because it's actually ingame. There's a menu option for it. You go through mods, select one and the game downloads it and installs it live. It's pretty good.

It's probably going to be limited though. I doubt it'll support the script extender, which is used in every good mod. But I have no idea.

I'm guessing that they'll prevent some mods from being listed for various reasons though, so you'll still probably need to get some mods an other way.

I've played all of them, and so far battleborn is the clear winner.

Has anyone played Strafe yet?

Strafe has nothing to do with these games... I did play an early version of Strafe. It was ok. Unless Strafe is some kind of Battleborn character?

Isn't Paragon just a throwback, team based FPS?

In any case, as far as throwback styles go, Strafe looks more fun.

Paragon is a multiplayer moba with modern 3rd person arcade shooting. Strafe is a somewhat old-school single player first person shooter rogue-like . They could hardly be more different and I really don't see what's "throwback" about Paragon.

Christ, I can't keep up with all these MOBAs and FPS/Team-shooter moba dealies. It's as bad as the perioed we went through when it was WWII games out the wazoo.

I hate these games! Everyone is doing one too. It's just like the MMO orgy we had years ago. It's all about making a quick buck. Such a waste of talent.

I didn't play much Online. I'm looking for a good coop game to play with some friends. Is that a good option? There seems to be character progression and some kind of storyline?
Coop in GTA 5 is a blast. The heist are usually pretty fun (you need 4 people), and there are a lot of little one of missions you can do for various people. You can also just run around and cause chaos and do goofy things. Might want to play in a private lobby though, as public ones are usually full of hackers, at least they were a month or so ago when I last played

We're going to be 3, so I guess heists are out of the question.

GTAV was a 7/10 for me. I enjoyed 4 a LOT more. It's mostly the 3 main characters thing and the effects it has on everything.

I hope they actually improve the game this time instead of just slapping a number 3 on it...

Borderlands 2 fixed almost no issues from the first game and the pre-sequel fixed none. There's serious issues in there. There's barely anything new either. Just samey new characters and a new story. The history shows that they probably won't do much.

I don't really feel that every genre needs to have RPG elements. Hotline Miami had none and it was great.

I agree. It would be amazing if it was a Diablo clone with automatic weaponry.

I think that was called Star Siege, and it was pretty bad...

It's not because one game failed that no other game with similar ideas can succeed.

Both me and my kiddo got on the Overwatch beta and the Doom beta for this weekend. We played the hell out of Overwatch. Doom got about 10 minutes, and we even had some trouble with logging in.

Pretty much my entire feelings are mirrored by the plentiful Steam reviews.

Was that a full 10 minutes or more like hard 5? Yes, someone stated that a lot of reviews are from players under 1 hour, I think he meant that as a bad review due to not enough time. But whatever, either game you mention is just all more of the same we've had, good or bad. Doom is all but a name now, those that mattered in the making of the franchise, long gone.

One hour is enough! It's all the same, over and over.

I couldn't get past the smeary look of the game. Like it was rendered at 480p and up scaled to 1440p. I'm betting it's largely the shitty AA they force you to use, but there's no way to turn it off to check. You literally cannot get a good look at anything in the game, it's all slightly out of focus.

That's because that pos reverts back to 1080p on your 1440p screen even if it says 1440p in options, you have to re-apply it every time you start the game. From technical and A/V side this beta is as shitty consolised trash as it gets, core mechanics are even worst IMHO. Worst part is, judging by recent AAA "beta" trends that are just glorified demos few weeks before lunch I can bet not much if anything will change at release, sure they will unlock some gfx options but not much else.

I have a 1080p monitor and the game looked upscaled from 1440p. It looks blurry as sh*t. Noticeably terrible. Also, there's no way to turn AA off, I hate AA. The game is a blurry mess. Maybe they're trying to hide the terrible textures because of their shitty megatextures.

I've gotten into Enter the Gungeon. It makes me so mad. I didn't manage to beat level 2 yet. I can beat the dungeon no problem, but the bosses are such a difficulty spike. This game is basically the same as Binding of Isaac, except with less items, variation and crazy combinations. The problem is that the difficulty curve is too harsh. It's not really a curve, it's more like difficulty walls. I don't think I'm going to put more effort into it because for now it's just frustration with no progress.

I've been tempted to try Hyper Light Drifter, but I'm afraid of having a similar experience...

Played an hour. It was boring. You move incredibly slowly and everyone has too much health. It definitely feels like halo. At least if it was more like call of duty you'd die faster. There's not much else to say really...

How old are you? Because right now you sound like a person who grew up with CoD instead of Quake, Doom and Unreal. The fact that everyone has much health is an absolute winner for me! It's like old times, where winning against another player was based on being consistently better than the other player instead of who's having the most twitchy trigger-finger.

This game is the first game in ages where I was finally handed everyone their asses. I think I killed 15 guys before I kicked the bucket because fights weren't over in an instant and accuracy mattered again.

I am pleasantly surprised. The graphics are weird and yes, you move a tad too slow, but finally! An FPS that doesn't try to be realistic or like CoD!

I'm old enough that I was gaming before fps games even existed... With that said, it feels like everyone has more health than in Quake 3, and a LOT more than in the old Dooms. It's the overall balance, the way the game is setup, it's unsatisfying and it's really easy to get your kills stolen. I was saying that COD would be better than Halo, not because I want it to be like COD, but because this new doom IS a mix of COD and Halo. If they were going to make it like that, I would have preferred that they take the health of COD.

I personally always preferred games where you die more easily. You're imagining things, there's as much skill in these games than in bullet sponge ones.

There's a ton of unrealistic fps on the market... Not sure why you like this game so much. It's so generic and bland.
