    Full QuakeCon 2018 Schedule

    Alright. Let's get to Doom. Enough with the sponsors.

    Wolfenstein Youngblood

    So I'm really digging the 80s cyberpunk impression that this teaser gives. Really hoping that they do a good job with this one. What are eveyone else's thoughts?

    Twice the demons?

    They'll probably do little variations on each demon, like in Doom RPG or Project Brutality. That's what I figure.

    Release date

    So according to this article: https://www.techradar.com/news/doom-eternal-release-date-trailers-and-news Doom Eternal is listed on Amazon to be released December 28th of this year. Does anyone have confirmation on this or is this just a placeholder release date?
  5. I would like to see Mick Gordon borrow from the soundtrack of Doom 2 much like he borrowed from the soundtrack to Doom 1. It would be great to hear his own rendition of "Running from Evil" and various other tracks.

    What improvements over Doom 2016 are you expecting?

    I actually liked the glory kills. I just want don't to be absolutely necessary all the time. Just some of the time or have them be optional according to the player's play style.

    We got the demons!

    I believe that the worms could be the thrashing limbs of the Icon of Sin. I believe that the end text in Doom 2 talked about how the thrashing limbs of the biggest demon you have ever seen devastated untold miles of hell once you pumped its brain with rockets.

    What improvements over Doom 2016 are you expecting?

    Bigger guns, bigger demons, bigger hordes, more blood, guts, and gore, option of permanent corpses for PCs that can handle it, better gore effects (including graphical effects and sound effects), more badass soundtracks, bigger levels, more varied levels and battles, not just arena type levels and battles. In terms of guns, I would love to see an upgrade of the double barrel shotgun to a quad shotgun at some point in the game like the one in Project Brutality, because well, why the hell not? Who wouldn't just love to one shot a hell knight with the quad shotgun and have his entire upper torso just explode into a cloud of blood and gore? This would also allow for more bigger battles with bigger demons since you will have more powerful weapons. I would like the BFG to be treated like the regular guns with its own mods and everything. Have a weapon mod that allows you to fire a massive beam that you can mow down hordes with. Those are just some of my preliminary thoughts. I would also like some levels on the scale of Deus Vult and Alien Vendetta. Just imagine facing off against that many demons in such HUGE sprawling levels in modern graphics.
  9. We know that a lot of rock/metal songs were adapted and included in Classic Doom, such as Alice in Chain's Them Bones, and a song from Pantera (sorry, can't remember what is called). As I have listened to more rock and metal songs throughout my life, I have thought on occasion "Wow, this song would fit very well in Doom." One song that I have been listening to recently is Beyond the Wheel by Soundgarden. To me, it would be a perfect song for a boss level or final map. It just sounds so foreboding. Another one that I listened to a while is Heavy by Collective Soul. To me, it would be fitting for a fast-paced, action packed map. Another one is Ted Nugent's Stranglehold. Not the whole song, but at about 2:30, the bass rhythm reminds me of sneaking around a Doom level killing imps and zombies. Granted, the lyrics would have to be removed since lyrics would break the atmosphere of Doom. What are some songs that you have listened to over the years that would have fit very well in Classic Doom?

    'The most overrated videogames you've played' thread

    Half-Life 2. It was a "good" game, but that is all I can really say about it. I didn't think it was this revolutionary, mind blowing gaming experience that everyone made it out to be. Of course, I played it years later, so maybe it was revolutionary for its time.

    DOOM: Annihilation - the new Doom movie

    It will be fun to see how he dies. Hopefully he will get blasted to gibs with a rocket or something.

    DOOM: Annihilation - the new Doom movie

    They just need to have blood, corpses, and gore all over the place, and then it will look more like Doom.

    DOOM: Annihilation - the new Doom movie

    I really hope the soundtrack to the movie is better than that techno crap.

    Rage 2 leaked?

    The beginning of the trailer looked and sounded kind of cool with the car and everything. But after the Bethesda logo, it was like "WTF is this?" And yeah, it doesn't match the more dark and serious tone of the original, which is kind of disappointing. And whoever thought that throwing the color pink everywhere was a good idea ought to be fired. I have no idea how anyone could think that that looks good. Who thinks of the color pink when you think of post apocalyptic?

    DOOM: Annihilation - the new Doom movie

    I was hoping they would copy the aesthetics of Doom 2016, along with the story and everything. Sigh. Looks like they are just trying to make a 'better' version of Doom 2005. LAAAAAME!

    R. Lee Ermey Has Died At Age 74

    His voice is in a Doom mod somewhere. Jay's Brutal Doom I believe it is. One of the friendly marines that you teleport in has his voice. It made me smile and chuckle when the friendly marine said his line while mowing down demons "You're the lowest form of life on earth! You're not even a human fucking being!"

    DOOM: Annihilation - the new Doom movie

    Please, oh please, oh please, oh PLEASE let the second possibility be the case! I can't tell you how disappointed I will be if it is the first!

    DOOM: Annihilation - the new Doom movie

    Glad they seem to be making it like Doom 2016. In my opinion, Doomguy shouldn't talk. He should just be a wrecking ball, like the terminator. Other people can do the talking, like Olivia Pearce, Samuel Hayden, Vega, other UAC employees, etc. They can do the exposition. Have the movie start out before the invasion, maybe with the discovery of Doomguy's sarcophagus. Then when the invasion starts, Doomguy gets awakened by some scientists just before they are brutally killed by demons. Doomguy breaks free of his chains, kills all the demons with his bare hands and possibly with a gun, just like in the game. He later finds his armor, a shotgun, and goes on his way to kill them all. Then the rest of movie should be pretty much be like the Fight like Hell trailer, only with Mick Gordon's soundtrack blaring in the background. He must do the music. If the movie is exactly like that, I just might buy it.

    So how far did you get on Ultra-Nightmare?

    I've gotten just to the Foundry level just far, but man, ultra-nightmare mode has made me realize just how balls to the wall intense this new Doom is. Before playing on ultra-nightmare mode, I thought that Doom 2016 was too easy, that it didn't quite capture the same sense of dread that the original had where it felt like you were up against overwhelming odds, but all that's changed. You CANNOT fuck up in combat in this mode or else you're done. You have to move, you have to be fast, you have to kill everything as quickly as possible since even weak enemies can kill you quick. Although ultra-nightmare mode can be frustrating at times due to all the restarts, it has breathed new life into the game for me. Really, in my opinion, it captures the absolute intensity, speed, and brutality of the original.

    Where will Doom go next?

    Well, I'm hoping personally that Robert Duffy can make what he said about Ryzen a reality : "The additional threads and cores allow us to turn up a lot of things: better frame rates, more AI, more things happening in the game space, more simulations running, more realistic worlds." As much as I want a Hell on Earth sequel already, I wouldn't mind waiting a little longer while so they can create a souped up graphics engine and combine it with advanced physics and better AI so that when Doom finally comes to Earth, it will be the most mind blowing Doom game ever made. However, some SP DLC for the current Doom game would be nice too. Someone mentioned making a DLC similar to the Episode Thy Flesh Consumed to act as some sort of intermission between Doom 2016 and presumably Doom: Hell on Earth. Something that I was thinking about the other day after playing Doom 2016 is how I wish that id had made Hell a little bit more gruesome and oppressive. Last year, I played Brutal Doom 64 and found the Hell sections to be extremely foreboding and oppressive, especially in one level where there was a room full of captured, mutilated UAC marines crying and shouting due to their torment. Seeing something similar in Hell in the next Doom game would really make Hell seem more like, well, Hell: a place were unfortunate souls go to be tortured and tormented for all eternity, not just a place where demons live.

    Hardest level in Goldeneye 64.

    Aztec by far. I want to replay Goldeneye on PC with keyboard and mouse. Some gameplay videos of the game being played on PC just fill me with nostalgia, and I want to be able to shoot accurately and fast like James Bond would in real life.

    What do you think of nightmare mode?

    I wish that nightmare mode was also more than just enemies hit harder. I wish that they could incorporate monster respawning like they had in the old games. That would quite a fun challenge.

    Favourite Fast Food Place?

    Eh, I like each one for a specific item. McDonald's Double Quarter Pounder with cheese is always my go-to burger when I eat there. When I go to Wendy's, their spicy chicken sandwich along with a cup of chili and fries makes an absolute divine combination. Subway's Italian BMT is absolutely delicious along with their macadamia nut cookies. Burger King is alright. Their Whoppers are huge. Carl's Jr. is ok too. There criss cut fries are marvelous and their burgers taste pretty good as well. Used to eat out at Arby's a lot. Their roast beef sandwich's are delicious and they have amazing curly fries. I haven't eaten at Whataburger in ages, which is a shame since I live in Texas. I need to go there before I fly up to Idaho this upcoming New Year's Eve. My family and I used to call it Whatabum because the first time we ate there, some panhandler came in and tried to bum some fries off of us. The manager kicked him out after that. When I was a kid, I used to go to a place called Rally's a lot. Out East I believe it's called Checker's. They had absolutely amazing cajun fries. Which reminds me that Popeye's is my absolute favorite place to get fried chicken and it beats out KFC any day of the week. Another place that I really love is Chipotle. Their steak burritos are amazing. Pizza Hut is alright. When I'm up at school, however, when I crave pizza, I usually get Little Ceaser's 5 dollar hot and ready pepperoni pizza. Can't really beat that price for pizza. Don't like Taco Bell. Taco Bell is shit and is an insult to Mexican food.

    Hour long interview with Hugo Martin via /noclip

    Of course it did. I guarantee you that you more people in the gaming community know about Brutal Doom than the Doom comic. And don't misunderstand what I'm saying. I'm not saying that Id was inspired by Brutal Doom or that Brutal Doom is the reason Doom 4 is the way it is. I am talking about the impact that it's had on how gamers view Doomguy and who Doomguy is. That's it.
