Constrained Owing to Lot
Oh for Christ's sake. Yes, I love DOOM just as much as you silly people do, but PLEASE wake up from your coma and realise how stupid this thread is.
It's just sad to see so many people still stuck in 1993... how can you even question features like mouselook, jumping etc ? If you want Doom with pretty graphics and no new features, play the source ports. If you want an entirely new, immersive DOOM experience, join the club and wait for Doom III.
Hold it right there. I dont just want Dom with pretty graphics without any new features, but mouselook is the only feature i hate it the most, jumping is acceptable to me, and im speaking from the point of view for deathmatch. Perhaps newdoom really needs to require mouselook/jumping/or more brand new features to entertain the newcomers. To be honest, I already love the look of those demons as ive seen them from the doom3 src, but im not so sure i would be so appreciated about its gameplay but i would love to try that when it comes out. As the matter of fact, I do not play any weird source ports like vovoom, or other custom feature port like batmandoom, ghostbusterdoom..those kinds. Anyway, about how people will be so additive to this new doom, we'll have to see about that :)
you lot are more hardcore DooMers than i thought. i dont even know what strafe50 and silent bfg is?!? :p
but i played doom alot single and multi player in the day. doom was the game that got me into fps. and i think its a great game.
but the new doom is going to be different, with mouse look and all the othher goodies. you will need to 'look' and 'jump' to apreciate the atmosphere and realistic graphics + environment.
you cant have the best of both world's, this is the new doom, accept that its not going to be the same. its modurn for christs sake
umm, go to competn.cjb.net to read for some hardcore doom experience faq =)
'options' would be too hard.
Well, I assure it could definitely be optional. Have you ever played Quake3 online games? The Mulitplayer option provides you can launch a server for your favorite gameplay mode: team deathmatch, ctf, rocket arena....including external mods too. So I suppose in Doom3, there will be an option that you can host an oldschool playing server. Hopefully idsoftware will make a perfect deathmatch map like Doom2map01 for those hot dm fans of us =]
