New Doom cover art looks like every other shooter box art ever.

That's pretty ironic, considering they restarted production half way through development because it was too similar to other first person shooters. I do like the good old classic Doomguy's armor look, though.
I know what you're thinking. No, I don't like peanut butter.

If I had to choose between the real world or the Chex Quest Fan forums; I'd choose the Chex Quest fan forums.

Drop the https and use http instead. That should work.

IMO the "Looks like Doom 3 and Duke Nukem Forever" comment got it spot on. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to like Doom (4). I kind of wish they would have just made a Serious Sam sort of game with a slightly more serious tone and Doom's tech / hell environments.

I've been following this pretty closely, and while it may seem similar to Doom 3 at some points (face into scanner) I'm pretty sure those times aren't very common if even existent (might be just for emphasis in the trailer). It certainly feels faster than Doom 3. Not sure if its as fast as 1/2; keep in mind in trailer they can't move pretty fast or it would be a horrible trailer.

The player speed might be ok, but I'm not sold on the fatalities, I don't get the appeal of them and they kind of remind me too much of QTEs.

I've read that they're optional, but I am not sure how they would balance that. For example, if they had a non-fatality chainsaw that was like the original Doom chainsaws, how would they accommodate that in the level design?

Usually when games have these flashy finisher moves that take control away for a few seconds to play the animation, I just stop using melee attacks completely.

The part that reminded me of Doom 3 was the map design; what I've seen sort of looks like a brighter Doom 3. that's not a bad thing though, I think Doom 3 still looks good.

Wait, whaaaa? I didn't watch the trailer, but fatalities make this seem a bit like Brutal Doom to me.

Yeah, to be honest I'm not entirely sold on the fatalities either, but I'm willing to give them a try at least - maybe it won't impact the flow very much? Idk :/ Optional means that you won't have to push the button to proc them, but I'm pretty sure the chainsaw automatically does it, from what I've seen.

I'll wait until the new Doom game drops in price before I buy a copy. I learned my lesson with Doom 3. Paid I think it was $60 for it, and discovered that it was just a hyped, soulless money maker.

Does anyone remember my old plan to make a brand new Chex Quest as a third person shooter?

No, but that sounds like an awesome idea. Although that can kind of already be done with the chasecam option in the original CQ.

Also, anyone here play Geometry Dash?
