Doom Legacy 2.0 - Breathing New Life Into A Classic

In 1997, id Software release the source code to the original Doom games to the public domain, spawning a slew of source ports adding all sorts of new and more advanced features to the ageing classic. Now, the Doom Legacy team have managed something that was considered impossible: added per-pixel lighting and normal mapping to the now 14-year old game engine. Check out the screenshots below or visit the forum for more information.

I don't think this is enough for me to play through the whole game again. On second thought I installed Doom3 the other night and have had a great time playing it with a new computer and the mods that are out there.

Yeah, but there is one very fun and excellent mod that was released recently called "Knee Deep in Zdoom." It requires the Zdoom source port and an Ultimate Doom IWAD (the file taht contains all the game assets), but it's basically a re-imagining of the original "Knee Deep in the Dead" episode from Doom that is so fondly remembered. It's excellently designed and really does recapture that original tension and thrill you got from playing Doom the first time. For anyone interested in this, I would definitely recommend taking a look at Knee Deep in Zdoom.

The game was announced much too early, but also people were hounding Ubisoft about Splinter Cell for years, so they wanted placate them by making the announcement.

It's normal for games to "go dark", no reason to worry about it. In our age of social media and glut of releases everyone has to turn everything into a big deal if they don't get what they want immediately. Just be patient and let them develop the game.

And let's hope they don't turn it into a modern Ubishit game, packed with mundane boring filler, and ways to artificially extend the length of the game. Experience points, skill trees, resource collecting, grinding for equipment upgrades. None of that trash belongs in Splinter Cell.

Fond memories of the OG trilogy. Hope they do right by it.

well ... one thing's positive in that ... they're using the snowdrop engine for this remake, which looks better than Ubisoft's Anvil engine.
Snow drop is a stunning engine have been used in the Division series as well will be powering the upcoming Avatar and Star Wars Outlaws

Waiting 5+ years for a sequel or whatever? Yeah, I’m over it.

There's no reason they can't release smaller projects in between large releases. They're just obsessed with only AAA blockbusters. They forgot that's how a lot the modern giant ips today got started.

RupeeHoarder11h ago(Edited 11h ago)

To a degree….new blockbuster IP’s have always taken a while though. You just don’t feel like it’s as long because you don’t focus on what you don’t know about yet as a gamer. For example before the last of us 1 did anyone really care? No we were focused on Uncharted. Then once that new IP hits you become hyper focused on clock watching for sequels.

neutralgamer199210h ago

Waiting 5-6 years is too long. It should be 2-3 years max. Sequels shouldn’t be taking 5 years

Uncharted 1-3

All in the same generation and we aren’t talking about long time ago. Now developers are just taking too long

There should be a healthy AA market where games are priced at $49.99

Please do. I’ll take a smaller dense crafted worlds any day of the week over empty bloated bullshit that disrespects my time with lazy checklist crap.

If it replaces dlc I would be all for it

jwillj2k46h ago

As long as price is reflected in the smaller projects then great. Can’t say a game is worth 70+ if the campaign is 10hrs. Doesn’t matter how incredible it is. And if they continue to stuff “collect 20 stickers” filler into that 10hrs then I would say it’s not AAA regardless of what it looks and plays like.
