DOOM
« on: July 22, 2017, 08:40:58 PM »
Is free this weekend.

Tried a bit and I really like it...at least the beginning.

Anyone played it?  How long is the solo campaign?  Is it worth it?

I have played it. Not finished it though. It's freaking awesome. Pure DOOM madness.

It's something like 12 hours long.

I tried the demo ages ago, it was far too slow (computer performance, not game pace).  Today  I set it all to low.  Even the menu ran slowly!!  It was running better and didn't even look too bad.  I'm sure its amazing at max settings on a good computer.  I'll buy it one day.  its gone up my want list now I know i can get it to run :D 

The price is $25 my currency, .. a bit more than the necro for D3 lol

Not sure if I had it at max settings...I doubt it.  But it is gorgeous.

Probably one of the prettiest games I have seen graphics wise in a long time. 

My problem with the game is that it is so frenetic.  I have a feeling if I played it more I would eventually catch up with the action and how to play.  You basically have to always be moving which I found frustrating.

Were you doing the glory kills?  I was in the demo and found that was a good way to have breaks in the action.  Get them showing they are ready, run up and do it, get 1-2 seconds while it goes through the animation when time slows down and you have a mini breather. 

Did you ever play Doom1 or 2 from the 90s?  Thats one of the things that made it stick out.  LOTS more enemys.  You could get monster infighting going.  Since I only did the first 2 levels, I saw waves of up to maybe 20 baddies?  Might have been 6-8 max on screen at a time. 

For something crazy from a DLC of the original, check this out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTCm3vTB1I4  I played that map last year, managed all the kills and secrets, very tough with a few of the toughest monsters and LOTs of mid to tough things.

It is very different to say a consolised game where its "YOU ARE HURT, GET INTO COVER AND YOUR HEALTH WILL REGENERATE!!"

This is saying, if you are hurt, go out and rip that creatures arm off, shove it in its neck. You'll be rewarded with health.  Rinse and repeat :D

Did I play Doom 1 and 2.  Pshaw...Of course I played those games.  i rocked those games.

Yes..glory kills, ironically, do give you a breather when playing.  I noticed that also.  I will have to get this game eventually.
