Looks halfway decent. Probably only going to play it for single player though, unless the MP ends up being ridiculously good.

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.

What...someone actually said Q3 was too colorful? Lol_dies

Iirc they add the color red to the already fascinating color pallet of brown, green and grey. Think I could run it on 4bit color? Tickling

people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

The speed of the person playing as an imp seemed pretty damn fast at least, but I'll also agree the base movement speed is still faster than the norm these days. I played the earlier alphas and it had a nice retro feel to it.

I'm really excited for this game actually, my only two concerns are 1. No coop for the main campaign, and 2. No real editor.

Heh, sweet, that looks like fun. Being able to become one of the beasts, nice addition. If the single player campaign isn't short I'm sold.

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


It's been a while since you played Doom1 or 2 hasn't it? I can tell, since you don't seem to remember that half of the demons in Doom1 and 2 had some kind of cybernetic implants and/or weapons.

I hate to be that guy... but they keep hyping how fast the MP is, in this press release they call it "VERY FAST"... But the video certainly doesn't show that. Looks middling.

Yeah the speed is nowhere near the TURBO speed which was kind of mandatory in MP Doom1/2. I fully expect some kind of console or server command which would up the movement speed in some way. Still, it looks faster than 90% of the MP shooters released these days. I don't want to prejudge it because it certainly looks like the best game iD has made since Quake3, I just hope it plays great too. More worrying than the movement speed, which as I said I believe will be something that can be set serverside are the weapons. In particular the BFG and the SSG, which should be the best guns in the game, but should require a ton of skill to use, just like in Doom1 and 2. Still with today's ADHD generation and their utter inability to play anything without major hand-holding, hoping for classic oldschool guns and mechanics is probably hoping too much...

Enh I dunno. Something sorta off about it? Not hating it, but not loving it either.

The movement is off. The movement is a lot slower than doom and that effects the feel of the game.

Toxikk has better feel if we're going by the trailer footage.

ZzzzOoooMmmmGggg, can't wait to see the greatest engine ever created, for the next five years! Mwahaha

Not only that, how can we all wait to hear what the god of creation has to say. We can only hope to find out how awesome he and his engine is going to be and why it runs like crap for the next 5 years till there's hardware to run his super awesome design! I'm swooning with anticipation! Faint

Is it just me or is this demo way out of focus and fuzzy?

And whats with making armor marines look like hospital orderlies?

What's old becomes new again, just a bit more dumbed down each time.
Been there done that, don't see anything here that is an improvement on Quake, Unreal Tournament, Tribes, etc.

Yep I'm aware of that, but even still. Do a side by side comparison of the Doom vid (at 20s or 34s) and this. https://youtu.be/PcbpIntnG8c?t=53 which is a more comparable fov.

Not even close. Even without strafe jumping. I guess they're calling it quick relative to contemporary games though.

Looks like a COD game...albeit with a rail gun and devil guy.

Meh.

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!!!!

No it's definitely slower than doom. If you are going to do an fps you really need to get the feel of movement right.
