Oh yeah, that guy is totally straight. I saw a whole thing about him on the VH1.

Doom Eternal may have gone overboard with lore, abilities and cool downs to juggle, and the marauders slowing the gameplay down to a crawl when they appear, but overall I thought it was a blast and a worthy sequel.

Marauders were great.

All the things you mentioned in specific were great.

i liked all this stuff

Marauders are also an interesting piece to the combat puzzle in Eternal because you have to figure out how to do all that cooldown and ammo juggling while being pursed and still dodging other enemies

Marauders were annoying at first but I think the reaction to them was way overblown. If you just sit in front of them with the SSG and shoot on react to the sound cue you can easily stunlock them with a fast swap to the ballista. Everything else about Doom Eternal was cool except the story which was noticeably weaker than the first.

That works in the first appearance but not when there are other enemies around, and having to mix dealing with them with the inflexible marauder pattern was not good.

I will admit marauders got a lot less annoying once I learned One Weird Trick to reliably damage them, but they never stopped feeling like they invaded from an entirely different game, probably a brawler with a dedicated dodge/parry button.

Also Iíll get back to Doom Eternal eventually but I didnít find it as fun as the first Doom for whatever reason. I think a lot of it was just expectations. I really like busy action games like DMC and all those but something about the business in Doom was like... a step too far? I dunno how to articulate this

Doom Eternal's main problem, and I'm 100% serious about this, is that it didn't have an active style meter. If there was one then I think more people would have totally Gotten It.

Actually yes

Did they have it in the arcade mode? The original game had that when you replayed it sort of

I'm on the same boat. I feel like it's too tightly designed and that's just not something I'm looking for in Doom.

I love dmc/Platinum games too but I don't want that style of stuff in an FPS.

I still think MGS2 is a fantastic game. Shame about the absolute banal setting though.

I suppose I can understand people not feeling the cooldown abilities and constant weapon swapping and perk/talent bloat but I have MMO brain so all that fit like a glove

Yeah, pretty much. The enemies are built around using the right counter and not anything else but at the same time the whole bestiary is coming at you simultaneously and it just gets exhausting trying to execute one kill move while also doing the avoid moves for everything else and also glory killing trash to keep yourself topped up. The older games, even 2016, tolerated and even encouraged running around firing whatever willy-nilly at everything that moved and if you do that in Eternal you will be punished.

You think MGS2's floating platform on top of a giant computer spaceship is more banal than MGS3's "the woods"?

At least mgs3 had woods, swamp, desert, mountains, inside.

Mgs2 had hexagonal rooms. The setting was cool but all the rooms looked the exact same

Painkiller looked pretty cool


It is too bad there isn't a modern version of Duke Nukem 3D and Blood that are on the level of the Shadow Warrior reboot thing.

Holy poo poo I just assumed (after, I thought, trying everything) that there was no reload button but there is! That makes things a little easier.

edit: all right, I'm done. A fitting end: I leave the bad guy in a pit and do an escape sequence , climbing up all the time and running full speed. Me: "of course, the bad guy I left below me is in front of me actually". 1 second later, bad guy steps out from in front of me and hits me or whatever, and the final fight starts.

Hey fellow goons, I was banned in the great Burt purge of January 2020 and am (thankfully) now back on the forums! Myself and another goon have been making this game for about two years, it's called Rhyme Storm and it's a freestyle rap rhythm game. We're launching in Early Access this Summer and you can wishlist us here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1250350/Rhyme_Storm/

It's a big help if you do wishlist us and takes only a second! We just published a second video demonstrating how the gameplay works.

It's definitely a brain twister of a game! At launch we will have an easy and normal difficulty in this style, as well as a really cool mode that generates whole sentences. If you're familiar with Markov chains/IRC bots back in the day, picture that but in a rap style. It's like a whole AI generated freestyle and it's pretty hilarious! We'll be showing that off sometime soon.

Our first big priority post launch is a full VR mode.
