DOOM's difficulty has been recently increased, according to the Executive Producer. Non-linear exploration will also be featured heavily, while it will be possible to find more story about the Marine.
Doom is going to be Doom-autiful! (Get the pun).
Ikr terrible pun, I just want to see who would boo me first.
No, you didn't.
Dude it was sooo bad that it wasn't even good...That pun attempt was Doomed to fail ;-) OT: I really hope they innovate enough and give us a really good fps experience, its been a while since we had one of those.
I don't see a pun. But I do see a terrible attempt at one *ZING*
We want Sasuke
Doomed from the get-go😜
Yup it does look promising. Judging from the Alpha which I was a part of, I had a great time with it to be honest. I'd expect nothing less from a Doom game.
Non linear exploring? That's not what doom is about unless they are just talking about secret rooms
This is why I'd want to buy it. Just like Dark Souls, you'd die in doom, die, die and die again, but the fun won't end.
Please, no. Dark Souls is just too much for me!
This will have a difficulty setting so font fret.
To white feather: *Times New Roman pacing in circle, fretting if he'll be able to complete the new Doom game* Just making fun :D
Comic sans! Lol that's scary enough
I'm playing this on "I'm a wimp". The traditional way of ramping up the difficulty is to simply give enemies moar health and up their attack/accuracy and I hate that traditional way. It feels cheap. It starts to piss me off the third time I die.
@insomnium Yea I hate that too I wish they would just make the ai smarter ie flanking, rushing when they know your health is down. But if that's the way you look at it turning down the difficulty makes the enemies die faster and aim is all over the place. There's always a difficulty that is balanced though. Off topic: is your username inspired by the band insomnium?
No, you don't die if you're good in doom and unlike dark souls, there are no checkpoints and you can save as much as you want.
Dark souls difficulty is really nonexistent once you learn to play the game. Sure you die at almost everyboss at least once but that's only cuz the game is designed that way. I feel like the whole dark souls difficulty thing needs to stop. It's really not that hard for hardcore gamers.
I agree 100% I think it's the lack of checkpoints and looming feeling when you're carrying too many souls that people relate with "difficulty" lol. I have a friend who won't play the game because he doesn't want to play a game that's "hard just for the sake of being hard" and then I just tell him it's not hard at all and I can tell he gets pissed because I'm insinuating that he sucks and needs his hand held lol. And then he will talk about how clarevoyance ruined skyrim lol.
Look , i just played bloodborne again ( NG+ ). Yes, it was soo easy for me to the point that i killed 4 bosses before i die and i died only because i wanted to go nuts lol. But the first walk-through was awesome , insane, fun and new experience even though i played the soul games. It was easy because i already learned how to play it very well. As long a game gives you that learning experience in first walk-through then i am fine. Sadly most games feels simple these days , just 1 hour into first play-through in hardest difficulty and i feel like i played it for years..
Doom is the type of shooter that actually has a legitimate skill ceiling, like its sister-game Quake. You don't really die a lot if you're actually good. It doesn't have faux-difficulty like Dark Souls. Dark Souls is the type of game literally designed around you dying and even then once you learn the game properly it's not hard anymore.
Frisky i really want to know what is fun in keep dying? really do want to know. anyone knows if there are different difficulty options or just one default?
It's not the dying that's fun it's the feeling you get when you are victorious. Finally beating a boss that made you stop playing the game for month finding a new bonfire, opening up a new shortcut.
The alpha was pretty cool considering it was the 1 map and select weapons and what not when everything is ready and all the maps should be awesome.
I can't wait to play this.. I'm craving a solid FPS on my PS4. When is the release date for this?
Amazon France said 30 June, though I think it's a little late. Maybe mid-June at the latest.
Doesn't the ps4 have great variety? I'm sure there's a solid fps out there. You should play this on pc.
No everyone knows xbox is the " bro shooter" console smh. Its why ps4 gets all exclusive content for 3rd party shooters (cod, battlefront, destiny) because they can't make a decent one themselves.
Never been a Doom fan but I can't deny that this game has me intrigued. I damn near preordered right after the showing at E3.lol
DOOM > Wolfenstein > Bioshock > Quake > Battlefield > Halo > COD. Talking about single player experience.
hmm.. I'd place Bioshock above all..
Bioshock is the best in that group, no question about that
You mean Borrowsuck? The game that stole everything from the atmosphere, keycard progression/data pads, and idea of mutated mutated people from Doom 3? Don't forget how they made you play Pokemon Snap just to give you a reason not to be a badass for a while. "Would you kindly" place it near the bottom of the list where it belongs?
^but Doom 3 was unbelievably terrible...bioshock wasn't... Dead Space also 'borrowed' quite a bit from Doom 3...and was 100x better... I don't count Doom 3 as part of the franchise, though...it was a let down, and didn't deserve the title...probably why its been 12 years since they even tried to modernize it...
Bioshocks gameplay imo was garbage the story was good though and atmosphere was original but monotonous. You're just missing half life from that list
I don't think Dead Space falls in the same genre as Doom. It's more "survival horror" as opposed to "run and gun". Wolfenstein and Doom are the classic run and gun games that were also followed up by other gems such as duke nukem 3d and shadow warrior. No thought, no stealth, just guns that never require reloading!
Eh, I'd remove Bioshock, Battlefield and COD. Replace them with Timesplitters, Duke Nukem and Resistance. Timesplitters is number 1.
TimeSplitters and Resistance...two very underrated series.
If singleolayer experience. It's more like Bioshock > dishonored > halo > wolfenstein....And yea anything is greater then cod or battlefield.
Dishonored is a completely different genre ...
Didn't know Dishonored is a first person shooter. But to each his own? I guess.
DooM 3,Wolfenstein New Order + Old Blood, Bioshock 1 and 2, Counter Strike 1.6 are the best shooters for me.
Bungie's Halo's should be separated from 343's. Also Doom is amazing. the alpha was amazing.
It sounds good. There's too little of exploitative gaming going on nowdays, apart from releases like TES, Fallout, Just Cause and such as that. Even major sandboxes like every Ubisoft game has all the items practically labelled. Games that let you get lost, lovely! Also, it looks as though they're not making it too dark now at least.
I hope the "non-linear" isn't like Tomb Raider where you can just revisit previous areas and more like Skyrim... although I doubt it'll too much like Skyrim. ::reads article:: oooohhhhhhh
Yeah, definitely don't expect anything like Skyrim in DOOM...It's not an open world at all. What this means is that just like in the old games, you can explore the maps and find many secrets scattered around.
Gibs, Gibs, and more Gibs that's what doom was all about blasting demon hordes in the face with a shotgun while looking for secret areas. As long as it retains that mystery and fast paced action iam a happy camper. Oh and nightmare mode of course.
It better be non linear with a complex level design like doom and not this fake non linearity that just boils down to two ways to the same hallway. Please, dial down the story and no cutscenes or scripted crap either. That is not doom, increase the speed also. Stop following brutal doom, it's not doom it's a mod. Follow the originals.
You wasn't even born when Doom was released, please shut up about what Doom is about.
The story doesn't have me worried, yet. Afterall, The New Order's story and characters were amazing! Granted, cartoony, taunting demons will upset me (like diablo 3 did).
The alpha was veeery fun and kills were super satisfying. It's open-world? I'm sold
nice to see. the demo they showed looked way to easy
Agreed! It's not like this game can rely on the story to be great, it will be all about gameplay and with no challenge it would be underwhelming.
The demo for Bloodborne at E3 looked easy, too. I doubt that gameplay represented the actual difficult.
I'm really hyped for this game. Especially after playing the MP alpha. It was damn near perfect, IMO.
None linear exploration!? , shi....suddenly interested again...
Great news! I'm so excited for this! 2016 will be such a huge year for gaming. Too bad Dark Souls 3 is going to ruin most of it for me. But Doom i can't miss out on!
DOOOOOMMM Can't wait!
I will be there day 1 on PC if someone makes a new Simpsons mod.
Super stoked. Why does it have to be so far away?!
i'll be gone til doom-tober
i have my wife's doomdo in my grease pipe
looking forward to this one. Looks like Doom is going back to its roots
