    Doom: Annihilation update

    Changing the race/gender/sexuality of a character for no reason is the same thing whatever way you do it, make Blade an albino guy or Wonder Woman a hairy man for example and see what happens, besides there is not really a point behind it, is just marketing stunts, is "inclusiveness" for inclusiveness sake and if it looks dumb and pointless from someone outside of the USA like me i can only imagine how ridiculous it must be from the inside, they have good characters that are black or women or whatever, use them, dont change what it works for being one way so the brand gets noticed. And i am not even "white", i am from South America, and in hollywood movies latinos are always portrayed as servants or drug dealers, dont see anybody making a fuzz out of that, and i have even read, to put an example, black people complaining about making the disney mermaid black, because they know that is just a marketing stunt and has nothing to do with movie producers being self righteous, they are movies coming from hollywood after all. Why no create a new, original not white straight male (wtf is cis anyway) to target a certain demographic instead of changing an already existing character? Because nobody would pay attention, that is why, they need the "controversy" and debates about it to get the new changed character to be relevant. And all of this is coming from a totally open minded person mind you, i know people from all social statuses, races, genders and sexualities, my country is like that, everybody is welcomed. And something else that i wasnt gonna say, i dont know if this is gonna sound offensive or whatever but is not my intention, but i also dont wanna live in a world where i should fear my thoughts and words because otherwise i get marked as a black sheep that do not follows "the truth" or whatever: The reason why most characters are heterosexual white males in media is because they are written by them, and they are also the demographic, the demographic of most movies from hollywood is united states citizens who are white and straight and male, because those are the people that usually go see those movies. I dont care about any of that by the way, i am a lover of cinema as an art and i watch literally any kind of movie, what race/gender/sexuality is the main protagonist is not even in my list of things that make me appreciate more or less a movie, unless is part of some kind of socio political propaganda of couse, but i still dont care as long as the movie itself is good, i just dont want change for change sake. I hope i made myself clear and dont get banned or anything weird like that, it would be ridiculous honestly. The Lion King remake is one of the most popular movies right now, it has made one of the biggest box offices ever, and is a terrible movie. Same thing for Endgame and many others, Endgame was even praised by "professional critics" as a good movie when is not, and is the perfect example of a movie without substance designed by a studio board meeting, and even less creativity. And i am a Marvel fan by the way, but there is no front where to defend the crap disney has done at this point, which is sad because Infinity War was pretty good, but the mcu is a whole can of worms for maybe another day Casual audiences see movies an entertainment and nothing else, they dont know abotu the craft of filmmaking, as pretentious as that makes me sound, but i guess the success of the mcu is because most people who pay for those movies have never read an actual Marvel comic book, so they dont know how bad disney screwed up, they did the same thing with The Last Jedi but because everybody was way more familiar with Star Wars they saw right throught the charade. Hollywood is very good at making technically flawess movies that are totally hollow and souless, generic formulaic and forgettable cookie cutter products. That last sentence you wrote could be easily applied to the people who complain about most movies being about "white straight males" or whatever, ironically, is the opinion of a minority and they get really irritated and vocal when they dont cater to their needs. I also find extremely simplist to call anybody who does not agree with a certain opinion a "hater", which i actually get on other sites from mcu fanboys/shills when i criticize ANYTHING from the mcu, even when i love Marvel and i have been reading Marvel comic books from 24 years now. Is just not true. And i dont have why learn to love literally everything that gets trown at me, i need to have at least a minimum of a filter in quality standards, specially when it comes from hollywood that is a place that is constantly trying to brainwash everybody. I dont knwo why we are even talking about this lol, the movie is gonna suck anyway, is just a matter of how much, and the gender of the protagonist would be the lesser of its problems from what we have seen so far.

    About Doom 2016's replay value?

    Sounds too arcade for me, even more than Doom 2016, i think i am gonna pass or i am gonna wait whatever time necessary until it has as low of a price possible. And the combat is repetitive as hell and not even challenging, that is why bores me, otherwise i could forgive the arena aspect. Anyway, i would love if they focused more this time on level design with exploration and combat working as one instead of just arena after arena, we will see, i am sure the game will be good though.

    i'm losing my joy of watching movies.

    Man i feel you, and i am sorry to break it to you, but: all movies have some kind of agenda behind them, all of them. And Hollywood out of all places is nothing else than a big brainwashing propaganda machine, it always been like that, it always will be, and they are not even subtle about it. You can find for alternatives in independent movies and movies that do not come from big studios or USA in general, but everything has some kind of hidden message in it, the thing with hollywood nowadays is that is straight in your face socio political very specific agenda, and is gonna get worse, the current state of commercial mainstream movie industry is disgusting. And something else, the problem is that the movies barely are made by the directors/artists anymore, they are made by a studio board meetings based on demographic and market analyis, that is why they are all so cookie cutter and souless, the best example of this is of course the MCU, specially something like Endgame, which is a perfect example of everything wrong with the movie industry today and all around a bad movie.

    Doom: Annihilation update

    Because it does, it looks cheap and cringe worthy for the most part (DIE DIE DIE! lol what is that dialogue) we might be surprised and at best get a decent entertainment that can be enjoyed because of Doom bias, maybe is even decent as a braindead cheap poorly written entertainment, maybe it even gets to be a decent entertainment, period, but i dont think it would be a stretch to say that is not gonna be a masterpiece in any way or even reach the calification of "good movie". Sorry for the double posting, i was readin two different pages in two different tabs and i did not knew how to put them together.

    Doom: Annihilation update

    Really? What Marvel does is cheap publicity stunts because a lack of actual substance and creativity that the works have to hold on their own. I could elaborate but i dont wanna derail the thread, besides is a political trend in media that we are seeing lately a little too often. Also, try to do it the other way around and see the reaction it gets.

    About Doom 2016's replay value?

    Yeah, is a contradiction on the game design philosophy, is just like those moments the game has like "Look how rebellious we are, we know you hate unskippable cutscenes so we made the actual protagonist discard them, because we know that you just want to play the game. Oh, and here is some unskippable cutscenes and unskippable moments of characters talking to you while you are trying to play the game, lol". I mean, the game is just small arena or big arena, but always a basically circle shaped arena with lots of platforming and you have to keep jumping everywhere all the time like freaking Mario or die (and you can even accidentally jump out of the map and die and have to do the thing all over again, AAA game design ladies and gentlemen), the original Doom 1 and 2 had A LOT of more varied scenarios not only in term of fights but levels, atmosphere, etc. There are some other issues i have, small but irritant, like trying to glory kill a demon but instead wasting the chainsaw ammo because of the odd way is implemented and because the glory kill button is right next to the chainsaw button, how slow the protagonist is, how stupid is to have more than one weapon mod and the fact that there are weapon mods at all, etc. But i dont want to make a list so i will just drop it. I can only speak for myself, but my expectations are already on check, i am not pessimist but not optimist either, i expect a fun game to play once and which has nothing to do with Doom beyond some superficial stuff. Being upset at this point when we know exactly what we are gonna get does not make much sense to me, though it would be nice to get a more old school experience. Luckily there are lots of retro style fps coming out now that do the job.

    Doom: Annihilation update

    The Warcraft movie is good actually, but is just for fans, that is why casual audiences turned their backs on it. Also, it should had the deleted scenes in, but whatever. Is on youtube now, but it looks all pixelated. This teaser looks better actually, but i would be surprised if the movie even reaches to be entertainning.

    About Doom 2016's replay value?

    Well, that is not up to me, is to how enjoyable the game is, if it was more fun to play i would not be complaining, i am at currently at Kadingir Sanctum and it truly feels like a chore to keep playing, i dont know if i am gonna finish it, and stuff like the challenges within missions or the challenges when you have Runes equiped, or the challenges within the weapons feel like they stop the game dead on its tracks, is not fun to pause a game all the time to look what do i have to do to complete some random missions to get the weapons to be decent. I hope, but i doubt it, that in Eternal they focus more on level design instead of just arena after arena while having weak weapons and slow movement. I hear you, maybe the game has not aged well, maybe when it released we were starving for a break out from the "narrow hallway shooter that is mostly set pieces with quick time events but is more cutscenes than gameplay" that it made us believe the game was better than it actually is, i mean i get bored playing a DOOM game, it should be like a shot of adrenaline for the senses, and i am biased to love anything Doom related, but in D16 the overall game is just kinda boring.

    Whats your favorite Doom game and why?

    Please, i would love to read it too, i think i can add some opinions to that thread, i was never totally fond of D16 either and i am currently replaying it and i dislike it even less, not that is a bad game, is just not Doom to me. I will never understand either why people put Final Doom along with the canonical official entries. Also, it would be Doom 3, not BFG Edition :/ I think we all can agree and say that without a doubt Episode 1 of Doom is by far the best thing to come out of the franchise, not that Episodes 2, 3 and Doom 2 are bad at all, but Episode 1 is just special.

    About Doom 2016's replay value?

    I am actually replaying the game because my brother installed it again, and i am just not enjoying it very much, i am at the foundry level and already dont feel like continue playing. The game is very, very repetitive, which i guess is what happens when the battles are designed as just arenas and nothing else, the tone is nothing like the original Doom, is more like a mix of the comic book and Brutal, all the challenges within missions, suit and weapons upgrades (and all of that to move and shoot as you should right from the start) feel like the developers stretching the gameplay in an artificial way, the platforming is not fun at all, the aesthetic of enemies and levels is very sterile and just meh overall, and the level design itself is bleh, i would say that if you finish the game discovering everything in each level then it has no replay value at all. Is an ok game, i think it benefited from being slightly more old school than everything that we were getting at the time which felt like a total revolution in gameplay and level design.
  13. No way, buying something without knowing its quality is just a waste of money and time, be it music, a movie, video games, etcetera, specially nowadays where everybody lies about the products they are selling, i was already scammed several times this year with movies. Adding to that, Doom 2016 was nothing special, so is not like i am crazy about this one.
