Doom (2016)

Postby Talvieno » Sat Apr 29, 2017 5:33 pm

We don't have a topic for this, so I figured I ought to go ahead and make it - especially as we of the IRC are thinking of doing some DOOM multiplayer stuff at some point in the near future.

I played through it on the "Medium" like difficulty, but I don't feel the replay value like I do with the original 2 DOOMs for some reason.

I have yet to finish it. It kind of makes me nauseous after playing it for a while. It is really fun, though.

I'm like 75% through Ultra-Violence. I'm upset we can't play ultra-nightmare by default because I always like my first playthrough to be on the hardest difficulty possible.

Gaining the right to play it is a bit silly, but I can also see why they did it.

You should have jumped on nightmare though, ultra-nightmare is just nightmare with 1 life.

Nightmare wasn't unlocked for me at the start unless I'm already playing on it. I'm definitely playing on the hardest difficulty I could select.

This is kinda how I feel. But I'm chalking the reason up to me being an old fogey who believes in the 'good ole days' of FPS.

Personally I found the "medium" difficulty far, far too easy. I never died. That was kind of boring for me. Ultra-violence is where it's at. Possibly harder... but I'll have to see.

In any case, yes, I would feel the game had no replay value if I played through on "Hurt me plenty", which does exactly as advertised: you get hurt a lot because you can afford not to bother to dodge shots. And where's the fun in that?

Tal's thinking it might be sometime around 8-10pm UTC.... but don't quote me on that. I could be wrong with my conversions. :ghost:
