Please don't be shit.

While I seriously doubt they can create anything that comes close to Doom 1/2 or even 3, simply because the mods that came out for those let you make whatever you want out of those games, the recent successes of Shadow Warrior and Wolfenstein give me some hope. If they can deliver on the feel of the weapons and great level design, preferrably of the non-linear variety, we might be in for a treat as long as they keep exposition, cutscenes, QTEs and audio logs to a minimum.

If you are getting nostalgic, get Brutal Doom and be blown away.

The shotgun loading sound too! Was that the Cyberdemon? I still remember thinking WTF will this be the first time I heard him stomping around before the door opened.

I think it's cyberdemon, Mancubus has 2 guns and neither Hell Lord nor Hell Knight had weapons (if I remember the names correctly)

Hell Knight (brown colored/weaker one) and Baron of Hell (pink/stronger) if I remember right. Mancubus is also a lot shorter and really fat. The one in the video is either a Cyberdemon or something new.

It's almost certainly their new take on the Cyberdemon.

I think I'm going to pretend I didn't see this. I know I'll be disappointed, and if I allow myself to get excited at all, I'll probably just finally collapse and die of terminal game disappointment.

Someone just remake all of the old school Doom games in a working modern engine, but with no mechanical changes. Brutal Doom, basically, but less of a pain in the ass to get up and running.

Dunno, Brutal Doom is easier to set up than Skyrim with 15+ mods ...

If they just did the whole thing with the same movement and feel in, say, Serious Sam 3 engine so you don't have to turn everything off to get 60+ fps, I'd be more than happy.

the reason d1/2 were so great was the multiplayer, it started the whole first person shooter craze. doom3 was more story and graphics. just give us a balanced game w/ replayability, and some silent bfgs

Yes, multiplayer was fantastic. Especially being able to play through the game cooperatively, which since then has been sorely missing from 95%+ of all FPS. System Shock 2 being the only other example I can think of.

I spoke with Carmack at a QuakeCon I was competing at, while they were working on Doom 3. Asked him if it'd have coop multiplayer, and his response was basically blah blah we're excited to have story-driven cutsceney type bullshit blah blah... I just kind of tuned him out while I focused in on his stupid face, holding myself back from punching him. So yeah, I really don't have any hope for this. Assuming it's him/Id, I didn't see anything specific in the trailer.

i'm sure his genius is stil in the code that will be doom4. the problem is doom2's gameplay was greatly influenced by the other guys at id back then. john romero, american mcgee, few others. those guys would DM ALL the time, and the balance in MP showed.

Doom 3 wasn't that bad. D1 and 2 had co-op play? I guess I don't remember that, hah.

If they actually put some focus on 1v1 I might be interested. Things have been primarily team based for years though and I don't see that focus changing.

Doom 3 was good. Just dragged up on in the beginning up until the shit in the monitor room. I had headphones on and was playing in the dark at 1am: When they came through the monitors in that room I jumped up and yelled something incomprehensible at my screen.

For that unique experience alone I give it high marks.

I remember inviting my brother and his friend who was over at the time into my bedroom to watch me play it. It was already late, turned lights off and I'm pretty sure within 5 minutes they pissed themselves. They were probably 12-13 too. It got me a few times too but then it became pretty expected. Good stuff!

One of the guys I game with said he'd heard rumors of internal bickering and lack of direction hence the constant scrapping and start overs, and may have been a factor in Carmack leaving. Who knows, just hope it's good :-/
