    I kind of know what he is getting at. One of the pleasant things about Doom (Reboot) was that it gives no fucks to the story, Slayer picked up a monitor and flung it aside as a nod to it. Game looks great, but the story stuff looks like generic naff shit.

    Pretty sure Doom 2016 was more than that.

    Just read the Eurogamer review. Edwin is an insufferable bore. You can almost picture him masturbating over his own purple prose: referencing porn, O-faces and dripping orifices in a Doom game...It reads like a self-congratulatory orgy for one.

    Where do people go for reviews? The EG ones are so wank I just wait for people's opinions but still miss reading a review of a game.

    This - it's so annoying. 50 quid on Steam is crazy though, sigh. I now have: Steam, EGS, Twitch, Origin, UPlay, Xbox GP, Battle.net and GOG Galaxy to somehow tie them together. Such an irritating waste of space on my computer.

    I tend to just read the EG reviews and then Google for the VG247 reviews round-up and follow any outlier reviews there to see if the issues reviewers are flagging up concern me at all. For Doom Eternal: https://www.vg247.com/2020/03/17/doom-eternal-review-scores-pc-ps4-xbox-one/

    The Doom Eternal reviews seem pretty great generally, but a few sites docking it points for the unnecessarily expanded story. That's probably an issue that's easy to overlook, but I can see why reviewers would find it unnecessary: Doom has never been about the narrative.

    I'll venture onto opencritic and just hand pick a few high and low scoring ones and skim them. I don't tend to read reviews anymore. If anything I'll read them after I've played a game.

    My preferred approach is just looking at some gameplay on YT or twitch.

    I read that and was WTF-ing at those bits. Pseuds corner stuff there for sure.

    Itís really annoying, I quite agree. However, I now have two kids sharing my Steam library, and of course only one player can use it at once. Which has actually made it quite handy to have games on a couple of other platforms!
