I have high hopes for two reasons , ID is now owned by Bethesda who in my opinion release quality games and the new Doom was ready a couple of years ago but they scrapped it and started again because it wasn't good enough , my hopes are high.


Oh and John Carmack isn't there any more , I think he lost his way as shown by the very disappointing Rage.
I think Carmack spread himself too thin, he has his fingers in so many pies. The man was a genius, just wish he'd stick solely to gaming.
Last I heard he was involved in the oculas thingy

Me neither.

You'll notice the games that usually tend to do well show off their game play as soon as they are able to.

I'm not holding my breath for this one. I'll probably wait for it to go on sale on Steam or a DRM free site if possible and check it out then.

I dunno, I was pretty Dragon Born for awhile.

I played that game to the point where I think I might hate it now lol.

Right before checking the news on ATS, I just typed 'Y' to exit zDoom in which I was playing a WAD I've never tried before, UnholyRealms.

Quite a coincidence indeed heh

I'm sure the newest Doom will be worth it to play trough once like Doom 3 was...let's hope it's good enough to play almost 20 years later like Doom 2 still is!

That's a relief in some ways. I haven't seen that engine though so I'll take your word for it. I pretty much stopped playing games from big companies, especially ones that get a lot of hype. I have felt that the industry has moved to making games that hold the players hand to much, even in supposed sandbox games.

There was a day where you couldn't fast travel around the map, rely on a compass pointing you towards your next objective, had to physically read your quest journal to figure out what you need to do, and death could come at an instant if you weren't careful.

As far as Doom goes. I was never actually allowed to play it as a kid. I had Chex Quest! It wasn't until some years ago I got into Doom and the original content for it I couldn't get into. Played a lot of custom stuff which is a lot less sparse than what I've seen from original maps.

I definitely hope this is a good Doom game though. I really dig the sci-fi horror on Mars concept. My DnD group has played two, half year long campaigns in similar environments. Inspired by Doom.



Edit: When it comes to games, my mindset is like Yhatzee (Zero Punctuation)

Rats....I thought this was going to be about Doom Porn from the title. We need some New good Doom.

There is a new IP coming out perfect for ATS, I'm not great at thread creation or youtube embedding but it looks promising, they actually showed pre alpha gameplay and it wasn't too bad, I'll do a name drop if someone wants to do it... Don't want to derail thread... DOOM!

SF! I figured I would have caught this over on IGN, but it is cool I stumbled on it here. I don't know why but I really really really loved Doom 3. The way it made you feel normal at the beginning and just through you into bizarre happenings was just creepy. You got to feel as if you knew the crew, and when you think it may be something more alien in nature that is killing everyone off the story takes that supernatural turn. It wasn't really repetitive neither like the first Doom. The trip to hell was amazing to be honest. With this said bring me a next-gen souped up Doom 3 and I'm sold. I am a kid who skipped Haloween to watch scary movies, had a Freddy Kruger poster on his wall at 4, and who never gets scared yet for some reason Doom 3 gave me the weirdest feeling when I played it by myself in the dark. I'll be watching, can't wait! BTW with Bethesda behind the wheel this game should be the shizzznittt!.

Rage may have been lacking in storyline and gameplay mechanics. But the visuals were pretty amazing, in my opinion.

No video available but the first report from those that were there are very promising , it looks like my hope for a remake of the original Doom may have been answered .



Executive producer Marty Stratton introduced the demo, explaining that the reason the new shooter is called Doom rather than Doom 4 is because “it’s an origin game, reimagining everything about the originals”. In other words, a reboot. The story kicks off outside a research facility on the surface of Mars, but the demo also included a cave system


Whatever it is that has changed, some things remain the same, and one of those is enemies: players will face down demons of various kinds, from smaller types that attack in groups to huge foes that require plenty of bullets to defeat.

No news on a release date but I'm hoping Q4 just before Christmas

Is it really 10 years since Doom 3? Wow, I keep that loaded on a computer to play and The Dark Mod (Thief style port).

Can't wait for the latest version of Doom!

Derek


Did you know The Dark Mod now has a standalone release you can download for free? No need to have Doom 3 anymore. All the missions have been converted and they are working on their own full thief like campaign.

About the trailer, looks sweet but i'd love to see more gameplay.

They're using ID Tech 5 the same engine used for the new Wolfenstein

Correction , they're using ID Tech 6

You're telling me they had a build up and reveal just to give it to a closed group of people? I'm sorry but this is sounding more shady as time goes on, what little hope I had was erased because of it.

From what I've read ID promised attendees of QuakeCon an exclusive look at the game , we will get to see the demo after that.
I wouldn't discount it just because of that

I really want this game to do well, I have been around the block and have seen what happens when companies have shady reveals and testing, it means they don't have confidence in their product most of the time. Lets hope it's really good and they just don't want the greatness of this game to leak out early! because hyped has also killed many games as well.
