"Doom is their core singleplayer franchise. "
Fuckoff, where is the SP DLC / expansion pack whatever ?? :D
Why waste time with DLC when you can just crack on with "Doom 5 (aka Doom 4 / 2016 (aka "DOOM") 2)"
I assume that's what id's core team are doing, and if not then
The original Doom 2 was exactly this as we all know.
Let's Be Honest
when you nail the original, giving them more of the same for the sequel is often the smart move.
Shame Quake didn't turn out like that :(

^Totally Not A Self Promotion
yeah seems spammy, but primal is a user on our site, unless this is just someone pretending to be primal. Or primal was a spammer all along! Opinions?
It was my post without logging in. I am not any of the multiple people involved in making this game. If I were connected to it somehow, I would have said so.
I put the Twitter handle in there in case someone wants to find out more about the game. You can also find it by reading the Steam page carefully.
I'll be happy to take advice on how to word posts like this to not look spammy or self-promotional. I've made a few of them before and nobody's complained as far as I can remember.
In other news, I played Q.U.B.E Director's Cut recently, and it was all right with decent puzzle progression. Kind of like Portal in some ways, but not quite as engaging. Reviews suggest the sequel has easier puzzles, so I am skipping it for now.
Is BlackRoom TRYING to be the ugliest game ever made?
Romero's career really did take a turn for the worse after leaving id.
It was the "follow them on twitter" part that seemed the most like it was written by a marketer. :) But, because I recognized your name I didn't flag it as spam. It's a difficult line because community members like should be able to post links to games they think are cool/interesting, but we don't want outside spammers posting links like that. But the content of the post in both cases is the same. So the only way to tell them apart is if I know the person posting it. (Off topic posts to things like jewelry and bootleg purses are easier to flag)
I'll put in a bit of effort to justify my future game recommendations with either "this is an interesting take on the FPS formula; do check it out" or as "I am playing this and having a good time; might be your thing too."
And I should start to assume people can find the devs on social media etc. on their own. I won't be spamming links and Twitter handles anymore :)
Speaking of recommendations, I am currently playing Snakebird. I believe it's also on some mobile platforms, but I have the Steam version. I sincerely recommend it for puzzle game fans. It's solidly designed and really ramps up the difficulty while introducing just a few simple rules now and then. (That'd make it a "casual hard" game for lack of a better term.)
very stronbgly disliking the cover art for rage 2, and also the soundtrack they picked for the trailer (30 seconds one)
of the first rage, I really liked the graphics and the animations (the dynamic animations that considered the environment and where the enemies were hit).
I think I disliked everything else basically. THe gameplay was basically total health and life regeneration. Story stupid as hell.
Decent Underground Is Better
Free Ziggurat From GOG
GOG is giving away Ziggurat during the next 48 hours. It should be worth at least a couple of hours of play, because of the variety in character classes, perks and weapons. (Unfortunately you have to unlock most of them. Editing XML files would be cheating, right? ;)
revealed on E3, more in august
Thanks for the head up. Grab a copy ot that.
Layers of Fear is free on Steam for 48 hours. Just add it to your account now and keep it forever. This game is a beautiful masterpiece of psychedelic horror.
