    Another DOOM movie being made?

    Very interesting to see! Although, I feel that for posterity’s sake, a mirror of that video will have to be uploaded someplace where it may not be easily found (since we could be getting into possibly spoilers). On a side note, I’d take this information with a grain of salt, but the IMDB page has now listed the movie’s release date as May 17, 2019 (I think, I know it’s the same date as John Wick 3).

    Custom voice pack (non brutal)

    Just as a quick question, what source port will you be using for your WAD?
  4. I for one, cannot wait for the day that mappers will use this to simulate something like zero gravity or some wacky way to "jump" in a non-euclidian space. A pity something like this may not work in a modern source port.

    “Doom: The Fake Outrage”

    I don’t know why, but I just think it would be hilarious if the guys at id put something in the game that would make these idiot grifters completely flip their shit (like an Easter egg or something). As an example, that PS4 Spider-Man game has a LGBTQ flag as a landmark, and I remember them throwing a tantrum and declaring “nO pOlItIcZ iN mY gAeM”; the same thing happened when it was announced in Total War: Rome II that there would be female generals or something to that effect.

    So how come people don't think Doom 3 is scary

    While Doom 3 isn’t like “it’s so scary it’ll keep you awake for days,” it does manage to be legitimately disturbing every now and then (when it doesn’t rely on jump scares). A few examples come to mind, especially with a couple of demon intro scenes: -The Maggot intro; there’s just something about that screaming corpse that’s very unsettling, possibly due to how inhuman it sounds. -The Lost Soul intro and everything building up to it, ESPECIALLY the sound of sobbing you hear beforehand. It doesn’t help that the Lost Soul reveals itself in a very gruesome manner. -The “they took my baby” scene. While there’s really no scary imagery in the traditional sense, the horrifying sound effects you’re subject to will more than likely make you think that the loot you get afterwards feel like something of a consolation prize. That being said, it is somewhat hard to be scared of the environment around you when you still have the arsenal of a one-man army and the general ability to more-or-less instagib most of the demons with a combat shotgun.

    So the official IMDB page is up here: https://m.imdb.com/title/tt8328716/ Look at your own risk at it might contain spoilers. As for the spoilers (albeit not story related for now), they’re a mix between good news and bad news: Since the movie hasn’t even been given a proper trailer as of yet, nothing is final and set in stone.

    Small news for today; kind of a hint as to how the soundtrack will be.

    (Indirect) Doomslayer Face Reveal?

    So over at r/Doom, someone with a very good eye actually appeared to have discovered what the Doomslayer without his helmet looks like. Of course, it’s at the very beginning of the gameplay footage where he’s putting on his helmet. Here, distinct facial features are much harder to make out as his face appears to be mostly covered in shadow, but his hair is what stands out because it looks familiar (in fact, too familiar): Yes, I’m well aware of the face model the Doomslayer has in D2016, but I’m pretty sure that was meant as more of a placeholder, in order to show that there is a face behind the helmet. Regardless, this is extremely interesting to notice, and it shows that the guys at id are really putting in attention to detail. Plus, another part of me thinks it’s kind of reminiscent of Dredd, during the beginning of the movie where Judge Dredd is suiting up, and we see the only time where he isn’t wearing his helmet, although we only see the back of his head and his face is completely covered in shadow.
  11. So over at r/Doom, I found this thread that discusses a UAC booklet found in the Doom 2016 deluxe edition (which is why I posted it here and not in the DE forum). Thread is here: At first, we get the usual “welcome to Mars” fluff: However, there’s another section of the booklet that actually hinted what really was to come in Doom Eternal: Finally, we get what’s either just a simple acknowledgement of the Doom Bible or a hint that Phobos and Earth may not be the only UAC-related locations: What’s particularly interesting about this last hint is that we have no clue if this is a location we get to visit in Doom Eternal or a subsequent entry that will follow. If anyone could get more pages from this booklet, that would be appreciated. Thoughts?

    Another DOOM movie being made?

    Ok, it’s been quite a while since we last heard of any official news (aside from maybe a couple of production shots from the movie’s official social media accounts), but we did get some more insight into how the demons will appear in the movie, according to Tony: This pretty much confirms that due to budget issues, the Spider Mastermind is a demon that won’t appear in this movie. Perhaps that CGI-enhanced demon will turn out to be the Cyberdemon? On a side note, IMX recently mentioned that he did some deep digging into the development of the movie, and found things that weren’t meant to be seen. As in, full-on character spoilers (no, I haven’t seen them nor do I desire to see them).

    Potato's Eternal Gameplay Analysis

    While it’s something up for debate (many people are agreeing that it’s “Corporate says we should let them through.” Other than that, very solid writeup so far!

    “Doom: The Fake Outrage”

    uh, no I wasn’t I’m pretty sure that is part of the UAC’s plan to “normalize the demons,” especially since we have another joke at the very beginning of the demo that pretty much says “there may be a slight change in the environment.” Yeah, and while the amount of people actually complaining about the joke was exceedingly small, those who were actually up in arms about boycotting DE were most likely in the single digits and were just straight-up on the lunatic fringe anyway. Besides, the joke itself is pretty much the UAC equivalent of that one Pepsi commercial where Kylie Jenner somehow manages to defuse a potential “riot” by offering Pepsi to the police officers. I recently saw another r/Doom political thread (that just got pulled) where someone said that there was somehow a Kotaku article on this “controversy.” I checked, and the only articles that were seemingly filed under Doom were the E3 teaser and an article talking about the Invasion mode (with some other details). THAT’S IT.

    “Doom: The Fake Outrage”

    NOTE: This is NOT meant to be a political thread of any kind. The mods are more than welcome to take this thread down in the event things get too charged here. With all of that being said, let’s get to the nitty-gritty. Quite simply, the video above (and by extension this post) is meant to illustrate that the whole “controversy” over the “mortally challenged” jokes was actually next to nonexistent, and the “controversy” that did get forged was mainly created by some, shall we say, less than savory characters desperate for views and appeal from impressionable audiences. It turned out that there was actually very little to no concern raised over the jokes in question, and the tweets that did raise concern about them basically consisted of “ok that joke was kind of lame, but I’m still stoked to play this game!” (Plus, they would receive next to no attention in terms of likes or retweets.) Unfortunately, that somehow managed to be more than enough for those “characters” to create this narrative on how “DeUm Iz ReDpIlLeD aZ FuK,” often either repeating the exact same article that seemed to be occurring throughout the offending videos or just putting words in people’s mouths that just don’t exist. What’s actually kind of sad is that these kinds of bad-faith arguments have pretty much infected every single comment section that has ANYTHING to do with Doom Eternal, stretching from IGN to Youtube. It’s kind of heartbreaking to see that edgelords are now claiming that Doom now validates them. All of that being said, while I do agree with most of his points, I do feel like Shaun does read a little bit too much into the themes surrounding nuDoom (like how Doom 2016 is apparently all about anti-capitalism and pro-environmentalism; I personally didn’t interpret it that way, I saw it as more for what it was trying to be, as a badass romp through Hell), as well as how Fallout is now missing the point of what the overall franchise is supposed to stand for (the first few games is more or less an allegory for the devastation of nuclear war and how Fallout 76 reduces it to a social simulator that lightens it up). But I suppose I could just be chalking it all up to his particularly dry brand of humor, which manages to be dripping with loads of sarcasm. But all in all, I found this video overall to be very well-researched and surprisingly educational (I didn’t know “mortally challenged” was a Discworld joke, and I remember Terry Pratchett being a big fan of Doom!). Plus, discussion about this particular video in the Doom community has been relatively civil for the most part, which was why it was kind of relevant to post this here. TL;DR- There really wasn’t any controversy over the “mortally challenged” joke, and those who tried to proclaim otherwise were essentially creating shit-tier clickbait.
