I love single player shooters when they're good, and that's a decent pre-order bonus. Excellent trailer. Loved John Lee Hooker's 'Boom Boom' being sung in German. -- The world was movin' she was right there with it and she was
Looks interesting! The last 15 seconds or so of the video made me LMAO. I thought I was watching the digital version of a Quentin Tarantino movie. Tarantino movies always have a horribly violent scene playing with completely oddball, disproportionate music playing in the background.
As for the Doom 4 beta access... well, I haven't heard a single drop of information regarding Doom 4. And I mean... at all. Which makes me wonder what kind of state the actual game is truly in. Maybe after I can see it for myself will I be able to make a decision on it's actual worth. Or if it's simply capitalizing on the 'Doom' name just for the sake of increasing interests in Wolfenstein preorders.
I wasn't all that interested in this Wolfenstein remake to begin with in all honesty. It rubbed me as just another generic, 'Nazi-sorcery' FPS.
Was that a response for what I wrote? Or someone else?
Who had first dibs? Bethesda/id Software?
Wolfenstein on the whole Nazi killing video game genre. At least as far as I know, it was the first PC game I ever played. I think I was like... 8.. maybe 9? I just remember walking along the walls hitting space bar looking for Stanley Cups. -- The last bastion.
Loved the video, hahaha. Campiness at the end reminded me of Inglourious Basterds. I'm really stoked for this game; I know it's a franchise that's very long in the tooth now, but this iteration looks really good. What they've done with the alternate-reality idea is a lot more interesting than the fairly generic occult angle they went with last time. I'm there day one.
Personally, I'll never tire of Wolfenstein. I spent more hours playing Wolfenstein 3D between 1992 and 1999 than probably any other game. Even authored a well-known total conversion and over 150 custom levels. (And that Wolfenstein? There was no multiplayer in it, either...)
As for the Doom 4 beta? I don't know what to think. Is Doom 4 even a thing? Rumors have it approaching an almost DNF level of development hell. -- "The counsel of fools is all the more dangerous the more of them there are." -?lafr H?skuldsson
Theres depth to Wolfenstein: The New Order if youre willing to put the time in to find it, to the point where I dont mind the lack of a multiplayer mode. The craftsmanship in the campaign speaks to what happens when a developer doesn't have to split its resources between two very different types of games wrapped into one package. Still, unless you're the type who tends to revisit games to try every tactical option and find every last collectible, this could be an experience that's short but memorable.
The Good: Takes some narrative risks and raises mature themes of Nazi atrocities A challenge even for seasoned FPS players, owing to solid AI Dual-wielding shooting action gets especially intense at points.
The Bad The story dips into action-movie silliness a bit too often. The visuals are all right, but feel a bit dated. Frequent interludes where the pacing slows to a crawl.
