    I know things are weird at the moment but I'm sure we can allow ourselves a new dedicated thread for a big game release. DOOM ETERNAL! Discuss.

    Ass temps fully cranked. Half expect the release to get postponed indefinitely at 11:59PM on Thursday "because Covid".

    Been watching a few vids and just can't get excited at all. Looks like I'll be leaving it for the moment but keen to see impressions once others start playing it. See if that sways me.

    Ok I ordered it from Shopto. Devoured the 2016 game in 2 days, so can't wait.

    Pre-ordered this today, ready for the weekend. I've not played Doom 64 yet either so looking forward to trying that too.

    They are selling this in stores now, I'm surprised they didnt open the digital release too.

    Hmm... the "launch FAQ and known issues" post implies we may be in for a slightly... buggy... launch, on PC at least.

    @JamboWayOh yeah there was something about it in the article on Game earlier. I think they are allowing shops to sell it in case they get shut down before it releases.

    @JamboWayOh

    Have you checked your email recently? I checked my original order email this morning and had the code.

    I'm stupidly excited for this one. Doom 2016 was a fucking amazing game and this just needs to be "more of the same" as far as I'm concerned.

    If it turns out that Edwin was right (stopped clocks, twice a day, all that stuff) I shall be utterly gutted. Will probably run out into town and start licking anybody who looks like they're about to cough.

    It's for the xbox and they tell me it will probably be ready for preloading on Thursday at the earliest.

    Heard a couple of reviewers unironically hailing it as the best FPS ever made. So that should be fun.

    @Dirtbox Depends which reviewers, to be honest. Edwin is a reviewer and has a track record of going squarely against my tastes.

    I admit I'm worried by the reports of a heavier story focus. Not what I wanted. But what I do want is fast-moving, free-flowing combat with good enemy variety and rapid switching between lots of different, satisfying weapons. Basically the anti-CoD. If it delivers that, I'm happy.

    Remember when DOOM 2016 was going to be a CoD alike?



    Yeah, fuck that.

    RPS have slapped a Bestest badge on this which is reassuring. They are quite picky with those. PCG gave it 94% which is pretty mad too, but I'm less trustworthy of them than I used to be. I'm fairly confident it's going to be great fun.

    Ahh I see. On my Bethesda launcher it says available from 11pm tomorrow. That's a bonus if true.
