The no nonsense “this is the story, who cares why, here’s a shotgun, off you go” approach to Doom 2016 is one of the reasons I had so much fun playing it. Not every game needs a layer of intelligence to justify itself.


To be fair there is a layer of intelligence in just how well Doom 2016 recognises this in itself!


Exactly! There's a lot of thought in 2016's thoughtlessness, a lot of cleverness behind its stupidity. Even reading the codex entries reveals that there's a ton of backstory and lore stuff, but it's hidden away for people with an interest in that sort of thing (which of course, I am).

My worry for Eternal is that this clever stupidity will be lost and replaced with capital-L Lore and capital-P Plot.

EDIT: This is a great watch, and explains the process they went through to get the unique attitude of 2016.

The playstation version of doom was incredible. Id played my 32x version to death by the time i got around to playing it, and the new lighting coupled with that scary soundtrack (which I vastly prefer to the original music) made it a terrifying game. So many memories of playing the game in deathmatch with linked up PlayStations :wub: .

And stop calling it PSX :x :dread: :capnscotty:

Now this is how you establish a character in a video game

Doom Eternal. There was a longer gameplay video showing a different part of the game shown.

But that was awesome. Really can't wait for this one.

It really was the best console port at the time. The Saturn version could have been amazing, but John Carmack crippled its performance. The guys making it had it running at a solid 60fps (More than double the PS1) but it had the trade off of texture warping being more prevalent. Carmack hates texture warping and wouldnt accept that version so they had to rewrite it and they just couldn't get speed they needed. As such it's a slow, horrible mess to play. Digital Foundry did a video looking at the least to most playable console ports (Number 6 will shock you!) that's worth a watch.

See, this was one of the bits that worried me a little from the footage. It's longer than 99% (EDIT: Nope, 100%) of the cutscenes from DOOM and, although cool, feels overdone. We get that the Doom guy is badass, the first game established that. If the strawberry floating demons are terrified of him, what does showing us that normal people are too really add?

Hopefully it's the game's intro, and the only cutscene of that length in the game.

Thanks to Taf for sharing the PS1 music clips, I hadn't ever heard those before and they are way creepier and dark than the heavy metal midi score of the PC version.

I was about to post the same, that clip has me slightly worried about the game. As long as that's a one off then I'm not too bothered, but if we're going to get lots of stuff like that then it's not a good sign.

Did people actually say Demon is an offensive term?

To repeat earlier posts the phrase "X is an offensive term" is often used as a right wing joke to poke fun at so called SJWs who dislike, you know, offensive hate terms.

DOOM Eternal used that joke as a lazy jab.

People got annoyed by it.

End of.

I thought I may as well post this in the newer DE thread as opposed to the old Doom thread.



Published on 22 Aug 2017

In this 2017 session, Doom composer Mick Gordon provides a detailed look into the compositional process, production techniques and creative philosophies behind the hell-raising soundtrack to the 4th installment of the seminal first-person shooter franchise, Doom.

The Playstation version is the best. Like you say, the changed lighting and soundtrack made it a far more engaging, terrifying experience.

Looks good, have they said if the Switch version will be coming out on the same day or will it be delayed slightly?

Edit, looks like its coming on the same day which is very good.
