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. Edit: Fixed with a hard reset of the Ps4 and runs like butter now.

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?

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

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

You can't shoot the virus of course. Do some roleplaying with the hoards of hell playing the role of Covid19.

i'm joking, man. Complete and utter, pure escapism. It is such a wonderful thing.

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.



This shit is so fucking good, Doom 2016 and the OG Doom had a baby and it just doesn't give a fuck. Stuck with Ultraviolence still, so far and having a bit of trouble but I'm slowly getting better and more fluid, it is so fun. I'm not a metal fan but I have the soundtrack blaring and as with Doom 2016 it fits so well to the action on screen you get random surges of bad ass juice injected into your brain. Fucking love this shit and I'm willing to support Bethesda for once, really needed this game right now.

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.

It's quite annoying on console also with the online account needed with sign in and I hope they remove it, it's a flaw on a really good game and even after you create the damn account there is still loading issues and such BS and it can't seem to stay stable. Looks like they had this all set up to go full on lootbox and MTX in every aspect but pulled back. If this was two weeks ago I'd be pissed and not have bough the game but I'll take what I can get right now, it's badly needed to destress. I'm not defending them but I can't bring myself to be mad either.

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