Doom Eternal

Bruh I’m so excited for this game. I had taken a vow to never preorder, but for this game, I caved in and bought the deluxe edition. I’m now waiting like a kid in line for Ice Cream for Doomguy’s latest debut. Like if ID Software says you won’t go back to the last game, Doom 2016 which was well received in of itself, basically if they’re proverbially crapping on their last product, that’s a sign that makes me excited.

Plus the play testers and the insiders with recorded reviews of them playing is just magic to see. Also the enemy design looks awesome and they really went to great detail redesigning their enemies from 2016 even more to look more like how they did in 1993. And the new enemies sound really fun to fight as well. I also can’t wait to see what they do with a “Doom Expanded Universe.”

Will any of you be playing, will you guys assume demonic form and invade my game? As that will be a mechanic as well, obviously inspired by Dark Souls.

I actually haven't played the "first" Doom just because I'm so out of videogames. I keep up to date on the gaming news but I haven't actually played a videogame in ages Cheesy One thing I like about there being a new Doom release is that means another soundtrack on YouTube. Rip and Tear!

Doom has a soundtrack ?
Huh never noticed.

Currently waiting for doom2016 to get cheap on the switch.
Doom 3 cost me about £2.50.
But there's no map, the aiming sucks and its too dark. The flashlight runs for about 2 minutes then needs recharging.
I mean come on, this is supposed to be the future. I can buy an led torch for £1 that takes a single AA battery, runs for 5 hours and gives out about 10x more light than the tactical torch wired up to a future marines space armour.

Sometimes the sheer lack of 'thought it through'  can ruin an entire game.

Bloody glad I didn't pay more.

Doom 2016 certainly has a soundtrack. A soundtrack perfectly designed to tear demon's heads off to Cheesy

yeah I'm usually too busy tearing the demons heads off to listen to any music.

Although the single best DOOM sound effect was on doom 64 on the atari jaguar - the plasma rifle just made the BEST sound ever !

I've played doom 1&2 on: pc, game boy advance, via an emulator on my phone and now on my switch lite.

I remember when it first came out.
up until that time the only 3d games available were maze games, with the occasional dinosaur hiding round a corner.
DOOM changed everything.

Tell you how lomng ago it was.
To play it you either needed a 386 WITH an added maths co-processor OR one of the brand new 486 chip[s that actually had the maths BUILT IN !
It was also around the time that amd brought out their very first 486 cpu.

I'm currently waiting for the original QUAKE to appear on the switch.
I never got the hang of movement and aiming being seperate at the time (no mice) as it was all done through dos and keyboard or joypad controls. And back then joypads only came with one control stick. So to adjust viewpoint you had to press a button and stop moving.
