    Cultists of Doom Slayer

    That's a fair point. I mean it wouldn't be a video game if the character couldn't be killed. And I guess id have countered the increased power levels of Doomguy by making enemies much harder to fight compared to the original games. But they don't cancel each other out; the Slayer is still far more a force of nature compared to Doomguy even with the increased difficulty.

    Cultists of Doom Slayer

    I agree with the gist that there seems to be this uplift in Doomguy’s meta across the series. the appeal of Doomguy was that he was an ordinary human faced with extraordinary circumstances and kicked butt. this new incarnation seems almost supernatural which just doesn’t sit right with me completely. Hugo talks about the “power fantasy” and to me the power fantasy is more impactful when the dynamic between the hero and his enemies and challenges is heavily asymmetric; I mean there’s a mental change knowing you’re vulnerable vs knowing you’re a “Slayer”. this is also why I still prefer to call him Doomguy not the Slayer because it grounds him a lot more and makes him feel like the ordinary human from the original games.

    Doom Eternal Delayed(March 2020)

    We’re all different at the end of the day and have different wants. I’m most upset about not wearing the Slayer helmet as part of my pre-order :D but happy to wait anyway. Life’s busy enough there’s always something else to do

    I preordered and I’m not fussed

    Hugo loves Prometheus confirmed :)

    Yeah I have a feeling this will go down the route of the trope where gods are just creatures who are very advanced and might have made us and other things. no cosmic level supreme beings here. Fine by me

    Doom Eternal Delayed(March 2020)

    I was wondering why we’d heard nothing about the game so close to release..

    The slice and dice glory kill is in that video (on a possessed) with a fair bit of blood

    How come the first picture says 0805?

    Heaven in Doom Eternal

    Yep. And you can argue heaven ain’t exactly done wonders for the world either. Ordinary guy on the street gets a pass from the Slayer. Angelic warrior who did sweet fark all while millions were slaughtered well now you’re part of the problem.

    Heaven in Doom Eternal

    Why? Evil is just a relative word. I’d happily put the Heavenly Host in my line of fire if given the chance

    Heaven in Doom Eternal

    I hope we fight everything. Heaven, hell, demons, god. Get in the Slayers way, he will kill you, whoever you are

    New interview from Quakecon 2019

    Lol Hugo said SFA during that. Nice interview though. Skipped the MP bits because I ain’t interested in MP but the rest was good

    Quake single player lives on in DOOM (An observation)

    There is a lightning gun... in multiplayer :) otherwise, good post i would like to see standalone Quake games though. Or a Quake/Heretic-Hexen hybrid. I think they mythos there is as good as DOOM with scope for it to be even better.
  17. Image doesn’t load for me on my phone... direct link?

    Known Bestiary

    The truth. plus yep, tentacle commandos were one of the best DOOM enemies ever. Utterly savage, unrelenting and their voices always gave me chills.

    Doom Eternal: Official Stadia Trailer

    Significant understatement. That dude is terrible. Using a controller is no excuse... he stands in spot hiding behind cover expecting to heal. someone didn’t brief him about DOOM beforehand

    Mecha in Doom Eternal

    Holy crap I never even saw those. Awesome spot

    Angel name revealed.

    Spawned by demons? nah I don’t think so. It’s interesting that it has a brain in a case. Definitely drone material. Maybe they enslave planets and capture subjects to be turned into these drones. Or this faction is a transhumanist one.

    No Traditional Multiplayer

    Meh. If I want multiplayer I’ll play a game designed for multiplayer as it’s sole purpose. Just as MP games that try and add on a SP component usually fail, for me DOOM is all about the campaign

    Tower of babel artwork

    Huh? In the story, God simply made everyone speak different languages and he scattered them over the earth. AFAIK there is no Hell in the Old Testament

    My feelings on DOOM Eternal in London

    Give me the option to use less intrusive power ups on the map and I’m happy. A toggle in the menu will be fine. also the ability to remove 1ups or they might as well give green and red mushrooms and fire flowers to complete the arc.
