Our videos of Doom

Our videos of Doom

You probably all know that Bethesda only sent DOOM to the press yesterday, which is why we cannot really tell you what we think about the game although it's already been released. Having only played the early levels of the adventure on PS4 and PC, it's hard to be sure the campaign will deliver until the very end. That being said, it can't be denied that the gameplay works perfectly well with a gamepad on consoles. Miguel captured some 1440p/5.1 PC footage with the mouse and keyboard, but we also have 4 PS4 videos to show you some gamepad action. We played for a bit less than an hour and we had a lot of fun, but we wonder if the 15-hour-long campaign (say the developers) is not going to feel a bit tedious in the end for such a fast and manic shooter. Provided the game throws new types and enemies at us with new weapons until the end, it might very well be the case. If not, then it could potentially harm some of the fun, leaving the player with the feeling that the campaign should not have been stretched out that much.

Looks good, time to time you can feel the original vibe specially when you see a monster from the original game but when you fight with the same species for minutes then it seems a little bit boring. I guess the story is not motivation so source of the fun is only the gameplay which I don't feel worth the money right now for me

I am happy everyone likes the campaign which is great news but I have an issue with the game looking overly orange in pretty much every level I have scene....

I am sorry if this is a weird question but I need to ask: Which PC footage is best for you? I have a really slow internet connection so I want to download only one of them. Thank you anyway.

Is this supposed to be 60fps on console?

I don't know really, I only captured the PS4 version. My guess is the third and fourth video must show more interesting encounters but I'm not sure. Miguel is not the best DOOM player out there though.

It's not supposed to, it is.

Am not a fan of the genre but it does look good. However those kill moves I saw in the first movie were already looking extremely repetitive. And that while the video was only 5min long.. Imagine a full game like that.

I was worried about that as well, but i think they are short and varied enough that they don't interfere much, and they are actually optional, you can just shoot enemies to death as well :)

My biggest question: will it sell well to keep the MP alive.
It's release window was poorly chosen. And there was no buzz or hype at all compared to the hype the previous Doom games had. I have the impression Bethesda wasn't confident with this game at all (also no review copies before release...). This game was announced years ago. Something definately went wrong during development.

But why? The multiplayer beta was awful.

The single player campaign looks to be the opposite though.

It did go wrong. The entire game was scrapped and remade. Its had a bumpy ride, the MP is shit, but it sounds like the SP is pretty fun. I'm in for picking it up when its a bit cheaper.

I beat the game today. Could not put it down. Best FPS in years. First thing I wanted to do when I beat the game was play it again on a harder difficulty. It has a Ninja Gaiden vibe throughout the entire game. I LOVE THIS GAME. For reals. It's GOOD. (xbox one version)

Is this by chance capture on nightmare video quality setting?
Commented on 2016-05-16 18:50:31 In reply to Wheat_Thins
Yes, everything maxed out, I just disabled motion blur because I hate it at 60+ FPS.

Kinda. I mean you probably will want to do the glory kill moves because they reward you with health and armor and occasionally ammo. But yeah they are varied enough that they don't get old. I enjoy them. Makes you feel like an unstoppable badass for sure.

You still get health from just shooting enemies, and ammo? That's what the chainsaw is for :)
Commented on 2016-05-19 01:00:44
Do you get as much tho? Yeah I love that the game rewards you for just jumping into fights, rather than running away and trying to find health packs or ammo. Keeps the pace up.

I'm shocked the two versions look as identical as they do. Notice any framerate issues on either the PC or PS4?
