DailyGame.net reports that id Software is expanding its internal dev team to start hardcore production of DOOM 4 -- and the job posting reveals that DOOM 4 takes place on Earth.
dude OMGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!! THE KINGGGGGG THE TRUE KING OF FIRST PERSON SHOOTERS! There is no doubt. DOOM is the King!
Doom and Doom II were king...Doom 3 is the ugly bastard (not literally, the game did look good) from the same parents... Doom simply doesn't work without romero...unless he gets back on board with it...it will suck...thats the only way to explain Doom 3...How do the people (except for Romero) that more or less created the first person shooter and the idea of a 'deathmatch' turn around over a decade later and make one of the most gimmicky, lame, cheesy, albeit gorgeous games in the genre?...they invented it, yet failed misserably in the gameplay department... terrible level design...unispired, played-out weapons...gimmicky gameplay mechanics...and terribly dumb attempts at scaring you... iD has a large amount of programming talent...Carmack is a legend in that regard...but without John Romero heading the creative aspect of iD's games...they have plummeted ever since...seriously...he left after Quake 1...arguably the best game iD ever made...Quake II was a let-down for many in gameplay...Quake III was innovative only in the idea of an arena shooter...and Doom 3 was the biggest disappointment for me in the history of gaming... iD's stuff always looks good...again, a nod to Carmack for that...but everything else just seems simply feels outdated imo...
Well I wonder if this was the game OPM was talking about the big Daddy of FPS games. Aslo I wonder if Doom 4 will use the Rage Engine or some thing else? I think this is great news to hear that Doom 4 is in the works. I can't wait to see what will be added.
Doom 4... Hopefully the id has learned from the disaster that was Doom 3 and makes this game as close as possible the legendary Doom 1 and Doom 2.
agreed...I wish they would just call this next one Doom 3...take the original Doom 3 and brush it under the carpet...that game never happened in my reality... its like the Terminator 3 of video games...it doesn't really exist yet...
hey Doom 3 was great ><
dunno what you guys played i loved doom3
Funny, I thought the whole reason Doom 3 was so mediocre was because it played EXACTLY like the Doom 1. The gameplay was revolutionary when the first doom came out, but it was overly simple and lacking at doom 3's release. Either way you have to admit, for its time doom 3 was visually amazing. It was the best looking game i'd ever played at that point, and still looks better than some of this gen's new fps games. I have high hopes for doom 4 though. Its been a while since id has come through with a classic like i know they can deliver.
Doom 3 was a fantastic game and one of the best fps I ever played. Got very high reviews too. Don't know why you don't like it.
doom 3 wasn't a disaster. it was a good game. anyways, great news.
LOL I totally forgot they made a T3 until you just mentioned it. I actually paid to see that and totally forgot I saw it. It was sooooo bad.
Wow I liked Terminator 3 a lot. Not nearly as good as 2, but the story was cool, and the ending was great.
haha what are you guys talking about?...have you not played many first person shooters or something?... Doom 3 was NOTHING like the original doom or doom 2...it was slow, boring, and had weak attempts at scaring the entire time...everything was close quarters...you were always in hallways and corridors...yet were still stuck with the same lame objective of flipping a switch or getting in an elevator to beet the level... it kept all of the outdated stuff...yet didn't keep any of the old stuff that made it fun...Doom 1and2 were actions games...you had plenty of ammo and you just ran around blasting the shat out of anything with a pulse, and there were hundreds of things with pulses...Doom 3 was a ridiculous survival horror type shooter with gimmicks...you were never fighting more than 3 things at once, and all they did was spawned in behind you in an attempt to scare you... you couldn't use a flashlight in one hand and your pistol in the other?...you couldn't duct tape the friggin thing to your gun anyway?...the lighting was cool looking and everything...but being that most of the game is 100% black, the flashlight crap got old really really quickly...that and not a single new weapon, save the smg and soul cube?...wow... I was more excited for that game than any other game to date...I played more doom as a kid than I care to admit...and Doom 3 was a spit in the face to any action loving child that snuck onto his/her parents PC to play doom at 3am...that game was about carnage...about sprint strafing and spraying rockets across a room just to pop 100 imps into need piles of meat...Doom 3 was a scripted peace of crap that had you wondering around aimlessly in the dark and being like 'ooh another pentagram...ooh an imp warped in behind me and tried to scratch me...ooooooooooooh'...lame... and come on guys seriously...Nick Stahl asking the Terminator in T3 if it remembered him?...feck that...any decent writer would have made connor understand what was going on from the get-go...You take Cameron out of the equation...and you are left with crap...you take Romero out of Doom...and you are left with crap...its a given...
How about a Heretic 3 id?
I'd prefer a new Hexen :)
wow blast from the part right there. lol!
Well, this is great. I never thought Doom 3 was a bad game, it just wasn't very innovative, other then it's graphics for the time, of course. Hopefully, iD have learned from that game and revitalize the gameplay, bring it to more modern specs. Add a new weapon system maybe, upgradeable weapons, 4 player co-op (gotta have 4 player coop), bring back some classic baddies and a whole load of new baddies, could be a fun game. They really need to upgrade the gameplay, that is the main point. Graphics, we won't have to worry about that, this is iD after all. And story telling, that is another good point. Heretic 3, now that's a given. Get Raven on that on pronto. Heck, I would like to see Quake V from them too. I liked Quake IV, it was classic FPS gameplay meshed (almost to a fault though) with some newer aspects (but not enough I'm afraid, still fun. I beat it like 4 times). I want to know what's been going on with Mathew Kane.
Well I liked all Dooms up to now so Doom 4 should be great as well. I don't know what you fools are talking about 3 being bad though :( that's just wrong
Agree with you, I also liked Doom 3 (beside the dumb AI)
Turn off the lights in your room and run around trying to step on roaches... doom3
Definitely excited for Doom 4, I absolutely loved Doom 3 holds a special place in my PC collection.
yea for the ps3 too, that made my day, doom 64, fuccin crazy a** game. i was up set that xbox took doom 3 away from playstation, i would of bought it
They need to go back to their roots and make Doom4 in the image of Doom1 and 2. 3's formula was UGH!!
Carmack is no fan of the PS3, but it doesn't look like he will take the Gabe Newell approach and just ignore it. Id needs to hit a homerun with Doom 4. They used to be the king of the block, but now seem content with pursuing mobile platforms and whatnot.
xbox didn't "take" any games from ps2, ps2 at that time was inferior no one played it except morons like you. Stfu and get a life
Its post like that, that explain why you only have 1 bubble.
man. 14 years ago i played Doom 1 when it was released. kinda a weird present from my mom when i was 13...but she taught me right and i havent killed a single person yet :P i hope they can capture the magic that Doom 1 was. highly doubt it....but im pulling for them!
Yeah, doom 3 was a letdown for me. It was so redundant! I couldn't even finish the thing. Then Quake came out, and that was just as bad! One thing is for sure, id better come out with something good or its game over for them.
Doom is dead. Unless it's a whole new dev team and artists with a new vision, Doom 4 will stink.
I've got Quake 4 on my 360, god I hate it. >_< Hopefully Doom 4 will be a good game which is actually scary, the use of lighting and shadows is very important in both movies and games.
I LOVED Doom3. I'm hoping for something that will follow along the same lines, but with some more action for those who hate it b/c it's different from Doom1. But Doom3 is awesome, esp. the graphics engine.
DOOM RAPES. CAN'T WAIT.
DOOM 3 was a disaster, it was not a good game. Nor did it have much to do with what I think a DOOM game should be. Let's hope they make a real sequel this time...
What I'm expecting in DOOM4: I want to open a door and look into the eyes of a hundred demons staring back at me, DEMONS!! Bring back the original Barons of Hell! and for god's sake more of those fat guys with the rocket arms (I forgot what they're called)Also re-work the cyber demon because he was just not scary. After playing 3 I went back and played 2 and the 2D Cyberdemon sprite was a lot scarier..Oh and wheres the Mastermind? (Brain spider with the machine gun) Doom 3 had it's moments but it just strayed so far from what DOOM was that they could of renamed it something entirely different and we would be none the wiser. In fact I think it would of helped! Had it not had the weight of the "DOOM" name then it could of done a lot better.
I WAS ALWAYS THINKING OF THIS GAME. ever since 2005 when i got my 360 and 1 year later when i got my ps3. i loved doom for the ps1.actually come to think of it. you can buy doom on the xbox live market place, dont know about psn though. ther is nothing better(well when i say nothing, i mean most things.)then 4 player death match or 4 player campaign on NIGHTMARE mode. brilliant gaming. DOOM 4 GONNA BE THE BEES KNEES. FPS KING, WE ARE WAITING.
the types of enemys on the doom is nothing but great. what a clssic franchise :)
