    I don’t really know how the UAC pivoted from ‘generic space marine contractor’ to ‘corporate space cult’ but I am all for it.

    Really dragging ass at work this morning. Relatively empty building today, so I cranked up my phone's volume and pulled up Rip & Tear and BFG Division. If these songs don't get you going, man I don't even know... it's like audio-meth or something. WOO!

    Nice. I can listen to music with earbuds at work, and if I'm having a frustrating day dealing with people or tasks, I'll throw on the DOOM 2016 OST and then I CAN OVERCOME ANYTHING

    I'm pretty sure she's responsible for all the god-awful platforming towards the middle of the game right after you get the double-jump ability. That alone is a crime punishable by death, even before all that "opening a portal to the hell dimension and inviting a massive invasion in".

    I'll be honest, I have no idea what platforming you're talking about, I found the platforming elements of the game to be spot-on and they barely even slowed me down.

    That gameplay trailer is my 2018 GOTY...

    Love how the UAC is apparently trying to spin the demon invasion too.

    "You may notice a slight change in the environment. Do not be alarmed, this is all according to plan."

    "Remember, 'demon' is an offensive term."

    "Earth is the melting pot of the universe"

    Is it weird that I think the mini spider-brains are cute AF?

    The Super Shotgun was one of my favorite weapons of the last game. There were a few times when enemies were juuust far enough away that it wasn't as efficient to use. They completely solved that problem by adding a fucking grappling hook to it. :D

    Oh. My. God. That looks awesome. Also being released on switch at the same day as other consoles if I understand correctly? Port handheld by the dark mages at panic button - can't wait to see how hard they can push the switch this time, given their work with previous Doom and Wolfenstein.

    Christ, how do you kill hype so quickly this year for me, Beth?

    I detest the new art direction.
    The gameplay looks utterly gimmick ridden.
    The pallet of doom 2 just looks terrible in 2018 CE after the nicely gritty feel of 2016.
    The glory kills just leave me cold.

    It is a truly unnatural state of affairs that an EA release has me more hyped than the whole of the Beth lineup this year. It's like Beth'd had a total reverse-Midas touch for all their upcoming things thus far. What the fuck.

    The art direction looks largely the same as the first game, and the glory kills looked mostly the same as well, with some variation thanks to the predator arm-blade. The Mancubus glory kill is practically the same thing as the first game, except now you force feed it the explodey bit on a blade skewer.

    I already love so much the use of the grappling hook against aerial enemies to enhance the platforming.

    I couldn't stand them, and was really glad when they were over. They weren't an issue in the later "Hell" themed levels, but they were terrible midgame.

    So I guess that's why they didn't call it "Hell on Earth" :biggrin:

    Game looks like it's taking everything from Doom 2016 and going to an extreme with it. Not sure how I feel about a lot of the new content apparently being "Monster/weapon from 2016 that we made to look more like 1993"

    Really worried they didn't attach a release date to the game. I think we would have gotten one by now if it was coming out may 2019 like I was hoping it would.

  • Linespider5Linespider5 ALL HAIL KING KILLMONGER Registered User regular
    Yowza.

    Seeing this footage now, it’s crazy to see, despite how groundbreaking Doom 2016 is/was, id was actually being quite conservative in terms of honing in on the classic Doom look with a fresh paint job.

    This is like MK1 to MK2 in terms of reinvention, scope and ambition.

  • jungleroomxjungleroomx And I said, hol up Registered User regular
    What is really getting me excited is this feels like Doom just by looking at it.

    Doom does have a feel. Doom 2016 came damn close but this... yeah, I'm ready.
