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.
@Tiz: It's about not knowing what will be in the lootcrate. That makes it possibly addictive. And EA went for pay-to-win. That is gambling. (5 minutes ago)
@Tiz: Agree. People want to punish others well implement methods because of EA stupidity. (53 minutes ago)
EA lost their minds and went full greed. $60 buy-in with P2W microtransactions, and an unholy grind? I'm not surprised by the pushback but it's impossible to tar everything with the same brush. (58 minutes ago)
If you don't have the time but want the stuff, then you pay. If you do have the time and want the stuff, then you grind. (1 Hour ago)
I think this whole thing is being blown out of proportion. EA over-stepped with BF2, but the method to unlocking stuff in most games is fine based on a time vs money scenario. (1 Hour ago)
This is a stupid move by ESA. They are now distancing themselves more and more from their customers. They are spitting in their faces. Apparently the signal to EA wasn't clear enough. (1 Hour ago)
And now Australia sees lootboxes as gambling. You know who doesn't? ESA, the entertainment software association which is EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo, MS... (1 Hour ago)
