Why play doom when there is a perfectly fine apocalypse outside?

I'll buy this game as soon as I finish the first game.

I've played and finished the first one. LOved it too, arguably my favorite fps this gen, but I simply cannot get myself to play the second one yet. Maybe in a year or so, when I will pick it up for a fraction fo the current price, or when the PS5 hits.

I am excited for this game, but am stuck away from home with only a Switch and old laptop that isn't nearly strong enough to run the game on the lowest settings. The game looks like a blast.

Pfff... waiting for the Switch version is gonna be plain hard. It looks SO FUCKING GOOD OMGODAMMNITPANICBUTTONDOTHETHINGALREADY!!!!



I was gonna make a separate thread for this, but since there's already a thread for Doom Eternal, I thought I'd post it here.

In case you missed it, Bethesda had ANOTHER major fuck up, completely botching the DRM they put in the game despite all the backlash they got for doing just that in the past.

LOL, sorry, I'm dying, I can't stop laughing. Bethesda has to be an epic troll job at this point, I refuse to believe any publisher could be this incompetent (notice I said incompetent, not scummy: EA, Acti, Ubi, etc. {though they are that, too}). They continue to do the thing people constantly gave them shit for doing time and again, and then they can't even get THAT right, TROLOL.

Great game, but man is it difficult. I die a lot.

So this released and i'm not even sure yet where to put my thoughts on the game, it feels odd to play but I can understand where it is trying to lead me into a loop i just haven't got there yet nor has my style adjusted to how the AI runs circles around me while trying to stay alive. After two hours last night I've decided to drop the difficulty to Hurt me plenty and let the game flow more which i'm sure will improve my enjoyment and man, oh man does it run like ass at times on my PRO. Actually I can't tell if this is frame pacing or or just the speed of play that is required because it moves so damn fast. Turning off motion blur helped quite a bit and turning on a setting on my TV that smooths frames. Feedback in hand is amazing, some of the best I've felt and i'm sure that gets even better as you adjust to the speed required. Love the platforming. Love the map, if it is just a bit slow to open. This shit is gonna be good.

So far I've found the best settings for the smoothest and more fun play with a controller to be 60, 50 on sensitivity. Aim assist not completely off but bumped down a great deal while keeping smooth movement on but at the very least getting rid of sticky aim as that shit gets you killed. And I concede for once, that i wish I had a PC powerful enough because that is obviously the place to play this game, it's feels almost a shame to be playing it on PS4 at all.

Thoughts? playtime? Doom 64 first?

Digital foundry : "the PS4pro was the most stable of the bunch"  (when talking about the stable 60fps promised on doom eternal)

Supposedly the PS4pro runs it well.
Dureing the testing in a demanding area that digital foundry showed, it was only a few dips down to 59fps, otherwise it was 60.
"exedingly rare" when it comes to dips.

They called it "effectively a locked 60fps" on the PS4pro.

"The optimisation here is excelent" - DF.


DF says the Xbox One X, isnt as stable in FPS, and it has occasional "hicks" where it cesses up, and you run into a stuter.

However DF also said, both versions run alot better than Doom 2016 did.

Have so far just played a bit over an hour, game seems pretty good. Not sure how you can complain about fps, digitalfoundry just did a video and it's rock-solid 60fps even in heavy battles. Runs great on my PS4 pro, graphics look worse than last doom, not sure how they managed that. I'm playing on ultra violence.

For my sensitivity I have 0 on smooth aim or what you call smooth movement? And 55/55 on sensitivity, you haft to turn smooth aim to 0 otherwise it ruins your aim, it makes your aim slow at first and it acceralete. I don't see how anyone wanna play this on PC.

Edit: Missed that you mention motion blur, this was good of you to tell, I have now turned it off as I see all blurs/abberation/grey filters/vaseline the enemy of gaming.
