Looks like DOOM is Gameinformer's February cover.

Sometimes I forget that Gameinformer still exists.

Given my run-ins with some Cyberdemons in Doom of time past, I wonder if how accurate or backwards that statement will be. Cyberdemon are a fickle bunch.

 

Of what I played of the Doom Alpha, it'll be a shame if the MP mode is left to the dogs. It's the tightest shooter of its kind I've played since Quake 3. H5 scratches my overall FPS itch, but Doom is where I'm gonna be going when I want to run and gun the hell out of everything.

 

Based on the MP gameplay, all they need to do is find the right balance between enemy #s and challenge, and Doom has it in the bag to be the best FPS of 2016.

Agreed on all points, for all of it's various 'meh' aspects, RAGE illustrates that Id still knows how to make a bang stick feel good, it's nigh time they came back strong.

 

On the other hand, DOOM 4 (I will always call it DOOM 4) seems to have already won the award for 'most undeserved cynicism from gamers 2016'. I mean, in one corner you have kiddies unfamiliar with Doom and Doom 2(AKA the greatest shooter ever made) who immediately write off the whole thing as old and stupid because it doesn't have ADS. In the other corner, you've got miserable old dinks who haven't actually played Doom in 15 years, and whose complaints are based on what they remember Doom, rather than what it ever actually was; I've hear complaints of 'Doom 4 isn't fast-paced enough' at the same time as other people have complained 'It's too fast paced, it's not atmospheric like Doom 1'.

 

Normally I'm the cynical sort, but people need to stop complaining about hell being the wrong colour, open their bloody eyes, and watch some of that lovely shooter action. Sure the game might still turn out awful, I'm not telling anyone to go pre-order it (don't do that), but my money's on it turning out awesome, and if it hits big, I really hope we see some slightly more old-school shooter gameplay come back in a huge way.

And here's an imgur mirror of the GI article in its entirety. Some very interesting stuff in here.

Am I the only one who thinks the general art design in those screenshots is pretty meh? Some of the monster designs are rad, but the environments just look so incredibly dull and uninspired.

Having mostly played realistic/tactical shooters, I'm all for giving Doom a shot. I don't mind the visual design much, myself: I'm mostly there to try the gameplay out :P

More than Doom, apparently. I mean, if you're into that, more power to you, but... eh. Doesn't appeal to me a whole lot.

 

Keep in mind I grew up without ever playing Doom (I seriously never played even a second of OG Doom until college, and only the first few levels from the shareware version), so I guess my tastes are probably just objectively wrong or something.
