Doom

Post#1 » Sun Feb 14, 2016 11:09 am

I missed this was in the making until a buddy told me about it a week ago. I didn't care much at first, as the last couple remakes of Doom were so shitty, but after watching the trailers in Steam today, it does have me interested.

Played a few matchs this weekend. It's fun but unfortunately Overwatch and Doom are coming out around the same time. I'm choosing Overwatch.

ended up cancelling my pre-order. Got a full refund from gmg.

Bought overwatch instead. Summer here not going to have time play more than 1 game anyway.

It was ok but wasn't anything familiar with the old school doom they were portraying it to be.

I found this article the other day and can't help but agree with it. Doom (or Quake) to me is about starting a Deathmatch with just a crappy machine gun then locating the weapons on the map and grabbing specific ammo for them. The way this new doom is might as well call it Call of Halofield. The whole loadouts and leveling up to unlock weapons and more loadouts thing isn't Doom. I still have hope that the new Unreal Tournament sticks to it's roots as an arena shooter.

Hopefully the single player is fun but the multiplayer aspect I'll pass on it till it's dirt cheap on a Steam sale.

PS - Overwatch only costs $39.99 for the full game. ;)

I cancelled too... got my refund.

It doesn't feel like Quake to me, my character movement felt slow not at all like I remember Q2/3. Disappointing for sure.

Maybe I'll try this TF3 wannabe you call Overwatch.
