    Quaddy and Cynthia were probably fingering in the toilets at Oceania back in 93.

    The super shotgun is a lot of fun. The Marauder is a pain in my ass though.

    I'm stubborn so I'm back at it. Enjoying it again but still have massive reservations. I'll see how things go on. There's definitely fun to be had but i feel like it is incredibly arduous. Nioh is tough and i die more in that but keep wanting to continue. With this i just want to turn it off.

    That said i don't feel as strongly as i did last night. So I'll carry on. Partly because I've just got the super shotgun and it's beautiful.

    Just to quickly digress, had an email from cdkeys saying that I've received the cdkey for Doom and that I've used it, so yeah, they sent me an already used cdkey and it was late. Escalated it to PayPal, absolute shitshow atm. Won't ever use them again.

    I'm surprised more of you aren't enjoying this. Love how there's no ramp up time unlike in 2016, it just shoves you straight into the action.

    The shooty stuff is vastly improved over 2016 too, such a great feel to it. The only downside is that it's kind of stressful to play, a good stressful but I find it pretty intense once the demons kick in.

    Hmmm... I think I might possibly conceed that there are slightly too many cooldowns and upgrade trees in this. Feels slightly over-layered in a Nioh-esque kind of way. Still insanely good fun, though.

    The marauder is a twat. Never enjoyed fighting him once and later you have to fight him at the same time as all the other major demons. There was a lot of rage.

    Part of the problem for me i think is I've always preferred slow methodical games to frantic ones. Probably why i love doom 3 the most as it's slow. Doom 2016 i got away with playing it my way but there's no give on this. It wants me to play it in a way I'm not comfortable with. It is very much a good game, just not for me. First two levels i could fit my play style into but not level 3, and it'll get more intense from here obvs. So i should have trusted my instincts. Pity.

    Back to nioh 2 i go. Not a bad thing mind you.
    Yeah, I feel the same about it, and actually prefer the platformy bits because that's the only time I can relax and play it without managing multiple cool downs.

    I can do the juggle between chainsaw, flame and grenade ok, but that's about it. I'll see how I get on.
    Wait until you reach the platform bits that require you to manage your air dash cooldown in order to traverse them.
    Eh? I haven't found them hard at all, fiddly now and then but your dash refills super quick. We get it, you don't like the game.

    Is he still bleating on about that? It's difficulty is trivial at worst.

    Yeah I've come across one tricky bit but I did it after a few attempts. It's more me pressing the wrong button to dash like a shmuck.

    I just did the bosses prior to killing the first Hell Priest. Fucking hell, my hands are slightly shaking. The first one was bad enough, then it throws two at you! Albeit in an arena more amenable to dodging.

    Initially I thought fuck you game. But actually, I did it third time after realising how to kite them.

    Bloody great stuff.

    The enemies that teleport next to you can fuck off though. Very annoying and need to be taken out pronto.

    Yeah I've actually universally been loving the platforming tbh. It's the other bits i wasn't keen on but i think i was just on a downer last night as even the structure and combat im liking now. I need to play the game for what it is sand stop trying to play like any other fps. Doom is rapidly becoming quite an individual beast.

    @wuntyate

    Yup exactly that for me too - I was forcing it to be like the original doom games and I thought, "16 shells in total for a shotgun? Wtf?" until I learned the chainsaw mechanic. I now need to unlearn doom when I'm playing this and then it's fine.

    I just went back to fast travel to some earlier levels for some secrets and the first slayer gate and fuck me, the sense of power I had was ridiculous. Playing this with all the upgrades after I complete it will be ridiculous.

    Yup, spot on .I'm loving it for what it is .the cycle of having to constantly chainsaw.or glory kill to keep combat moving is unique and fun imo.

    6th mission was pretty good stupid sticky floors aside.

    And that marauder though, that's a pretty shitty enemy.

    I found level 4 much much easier than level 3, playing UV on PS4.

    Level 6 is fucking amazing. The game mechanics all clicked for me there. Just a relentless onslaught.

    Like doom 2016 if you actually explore and get the upgrades it kinda gets easier the further you go except for one or two spikes. Overall though this waaywaaaaay harder than 2016.

    Iím preparing to start this and was wondering about difficulty level. Any suggestions? I am distinctly average in terms of ability, but I don't want to remove any sense of challenge, and the accompanying satisfaction, from the game.

    If you played 2016 from what I can guess each setting is harder than its equivalent in that game so go one lower if you're concerned. It seems people are finding the middle difficulty pretty tough (Hurt Me Plenty) so maybe start there and tweak down if needed. Ultra Violent is pretty ball breaking at points.
