    Grr. Waiting for mine to come through post. Which is stupid as it's a code anyway, which means I'll have to wait another several hours to download it. And I need my bandwidth for working from home. Gah.

    I'm looking forward to playing that more, to be honest. Nothing against Eternal, but I like the horror element of Doom - and 64 recycles some of the PSX soundtrack which completely changed the atmosphere of Doom. Should be good.

    It's been playable for a long time, just a case of throwing it's wads into zandronium or zdoom or similiar.

    Okay first two levels done. Nightmare difficulty is err a nightmare. Still not got my aim in yet, the controller input is pretty twitchy. It's basically doom 2016 but a bit more mental. There's story there but I'm ignoring it as it's just boring demons talking about taking over earth blah blah.

    Aye, Nightmare has always been a genuine challenge in Doom games even for strong FPS players. I tend to go one below just because I find it less stressful. But might revisit on Nightmare after.

    Revan can do nightmare with one hand whilst she finishes Nioh 2 with the other hand.

    Oooh the slayer gates are juicy. I've died a few times in one and it's had the cheek to say if I'm struggling I can return to them at a later time when I'm upgraded. NEVER! I'm beating this now. (Slayer gates are optional area battles that give you juicy upgrades if you can clear them).

    Royal Mail have let me down, TGC dispatched my copy on Wednesday morning and usually get stuff to me the day before release. Oh well, as long as it arrives tomorrow I won't be too miffed.

    Wish my Steam copy would just unlock already. It's been an... intense... day at work and I could really do with slaughtering a whole load of demons right now.

    Bit too much wild platforming. Melee is now pointless until you've charged it. The story is pants.

    However the exploring is great fun and the combat amazing like last time. As I goto work though my main feeling is rage. The end battle of mission maybe 4 is fucking horse shit on nightmare. Can't remember the last time I was so pissed off on a game. It throws every prick at you in the game in a tiny arena.

    I'm guessing delivery of physical releases is about to get ropier and ropier. Have just switched my Persona 5: Royal pre-order from physical to digital.

    Yep, I was close to switching my doom order. Looks beautiful with a crisp 60fps on poor person PS4.

    I'm not normally one to preorder so I can't remember how this works, but come 12am can I click play or do I have to wait an arbitrary number of hours into tomorrow before I can play the sodding thing?

    Not as bad as doom 2016. The file size is about half as well.
    7 gig patch.

    That's good to hear (no pin intended). I took a notion and pre-ordered it digitally, so it's preloaded. C'mon midnight!

    Oh here we go, from the steam page:

    Coming March 20
    This game will unlock in approximately 5 hours.

    I'm about 5 hours behind yous lot, so you'll be good shortly.
