Nemesis X
Sequel to the 2016 reboot and it's set on Earth. Get hyped.

But is Doomguy being replaced with a woman of color? If not then you can get this toxic male power fantasy garbage out of my face.

Kazenji
Trolls keep on trolling....

Tzeentch
What did I tell you about speaking before being spoken too, Nigel?

cdtm
Doom fans themselves added Doomgirl into some source ports, complete with unique sound effects.

Equal opportunity fragging.

I hope Samuel Hayden is the one behind the attempted invasion of earth so you'll have an excuse to fight him.

A new mode has been announced that will have you and friends invading a player's campaign together as demons.

Game looks good but it didn't really get me excited. I don't know why.....

BackFire
Same.

Probably because it looks like more of the same, which is fine, but it's hard to get terribly excited about seeing a video showing that.

Ridley_Prime
When a game sequel uses the same engine as its predecessor, it's kind of expected tbh, though nothing one should really gripe that much about. I mean if Eternal gives you the same kind of adrenaline rushes from playing as Doom 2016, then there's nothing wrong with some of it being more of the same. thumb up

The silent protagonist badassery in Phobos as well as the melee weapon moment (cool ending there with the Arch-Vile, btw) was what made today's showing worth watching for me, though.

Smasandian
I don't agree with that at all. There is a ton of sequels that utilize the same engine but do something different.

These gameplay videos are lame. It was just rinse and repeat.....shoot a guy, turns blue, execute him. I've done that already in Doom....I need something more than that.

Don't mistake my comment as criticism towards the actual game. It's not. I'm fine with it looking a lot like the last doom and will likely buy it and enjoy it on day one. My point was simply that watching a video of such an experience isn't terribly exciting.

Smasandian
Yes, I agree. I wasn't a huge fan of the last Doom but I can understand why people enjoyed the hell out of it.

I honestly believe they showed a terrible cross section of gameplay. I know most of the enemy types were zombies but it doesn't show well.

But...this is coming from a guy who really enjoyed Doom 3.

Ridley_Prime
Oh, I get where y'all are coming from with the repetition of watching gameplay, but it's not like there wasn't some new stuff as well.

In all fairness, I'd expect there will be at least as much new stuff (weapons, enemy types) as there was from original Doom to Doom II, and Doom 3 to Resurrection of Evil.

The new mode where you can invade a player's campaign as demons has me a bit intrigued as well.

Smasandian
Sure.....I buy FIFA every year?

Khazra Reborn
This game looks phucking awesome. Fight me.

Kazenji
Noticing its alot more like the older Doom's having you to look for the ammo & health, Rather then do a fatality move on the enemies like the previous game to get alot of that sort of stuff.

Smasandian
I didn't say boring. I just said more of the same.

I'm criticizing the videos themselves....not the game.

The glory kills on enemies didnt give you that much health honestly. There was definitely still use for health packs, but if theyre upping the difficulty here by giving you less for melee kills, can live with that too.

Flyattractor
SHould have been called Eternal Doom!

Smasandian
Yes, Eternal Doom is a much better name!

Doom/Doom II is the only Doom worth playing.

So says the authentic old guy, who was playing around with his nes/psx consoles
and never once considered them "retro". smile

I'm so old, when I played Doom, I used a flight stick. None of that newfangled wsad mouse look.

So you're a hipster, then 😁

Hipsters are kids, pretending to like their parents great grandparents things.

Still makes you a hipster.

More on topic, this game is, naturally, getting some controversy among some people due to how it parodies political correctness. i.e.

"Remember, demon is an offensive term. Please refer to them as 'mortally challenged'."

"Earth is the melting pot of the universe."

Basically, the in-game PSA's saying that political correctness let the demons invade earth... It is kind of an on-the-nose reference or jab to immigration policies, tho I don't mind it being the premise to this essential Doom II reboot.

It is kinda interesting how they're going there IMO. Wouldn't mind seeing some subplot about some group of humans trying to fight for demons' rights, and how it backfires. lol

In the end though, the UAC have kinda always been the real bad guys, who want to extract Hell energy no matter the cost or casualties, and so they may just be trying to downplay demons (comparing them to minorities or somesuch) to gain sympathy.

It's an interesting contrast to some real life shit going on, regardless. Perhaps the biggest parody in all of this, is that the Doom universe's big corporation (UAC) would rather harvest Hell energy than utilize more nature friendly energies.

Unless you're writing South Park, you shouldn't do social commentary. It's always painful, and it dates the product.
