@OorWullie Yeah, it's a sales disaster for third parties.

@Ralizah it wasn't that way back in September when Doom was announced. I searched for it and it came up immediately after the Direct within a day or two and I pre-ordered. I'm guessing they massively broke something in their search engine when they redesigned the site for their annual pre-Black Friday mandatory redesign (which I loathe that they do that, they always break the site), but I wonder if it's limited to these Switch games, or if it's a broader problem across everything from linens to automotive? Come to think of it, L.A.Noire for PS4 isn't showing up either. But Doom for PS4 is (because it's a year old.)

@Deathwalka it's a lot less blurry if you turn CA off in the video settings. Looks more like classsic id games, to me that way. Of course I also turned on the classic Doom pose: Gun in the middle. Where it's MEANT to be!

@NEStalgia haha yeah the first thing I did was put the gun back in the middle.

Now if only we can get classic Doom too

I pre-ordered Doom, it arrived on the day of release, loving it so far!! Probably played 75% in handheld mode.

@MarioBrickLayer it really is so good, and I've heard the sky rim port is way better! Bethesda have outdone themselves, I will support all their ports because of this dedication to give us as much quality possible with the timeframe and hardware

It's kind of hard to believe, but this game is actually scratching a Metroid Prime itch for me with it's campaign. Almost like the Hunters sequel we never got, focusing more on weapons, combat and substantial multiplayer, but still possessing lore and secrets for those willing to find them.

Doomguy also reminds me of Samus despite his purposefully barely-developped backstory. He hunts demons with the same gusto that she does with Space Pirates, and both species are equally terrified of their respective nemeses, as described in their writings. And the glory kills work almost exactly like lethal strikes from Other M.

I was saying that earlier. This game really reminds me of Metroid Prime.

@JaxonH @meleebrawler I said it first lol like last Friday. You know what else it reminds me of.......Perfect Dark only with Demons instead of Aliens. Maybe that's just me and the lack of playing a ton of single player FPS.

@Spoony_Tech
Ya. It's the elaborate 3D maps with secrets and map stations. It's the 1st person view and demons you fight like space pirates. It's the lonely but deadly atmosphere.

@QwertyQwerty I have to agree. The sound issues are really starting to get on my nerves in later stages. Really hoping a patch gets released soon. I may also take a break until it hits.

@Akira_1975 hold on what are these sound issues? I'm in hell at the moment and I have not come across any issues? What sort of sound probs are u getting??

Deathwalka

Akira_1975

@Deathwalka Well, I'll hear a loud buzzing sound at random points. Sound will also diminish in quality to the point it's barely hearable. I've also heard popping and static sounds. Once these happen they won't go away until I restart from a checkpoint. I'm not sure if playing docked or undocked has any impact on the frequency of these issues. I'm surprised you haven't encountered any of these. Especially now that you're playing in hell.
I haven't played enough multi-player to know if they happen there as well. Looks like Bethesda is aware of these so hopefully a patch isn't too far off.

The one time I got the loud buzz, it stopped after I went into the map screen and back out. HVe you tried that?

It is a known issue, hope they can fix it soon.

@Akira_1975 I'm really surprised, as I have not had a single issue apart from the frame rate dropping a little on a couple of slo mo cutscenes in hell when there was a lot going on but nothing annoying.
I've read others say this so maybe It will happen? If it helps I have only played in handheld mode.

Classic shotgun is the best gun, bar none. As long as you can keep up a steady string of executions for ammo resupply, you're golden.

@rallydefault Glory kills, normal ones anyway give health, not ammo, unless you proc the normal drop rate. To get more ammo you use the chainsaw.

Man I'm surprised at how difficult it can be finding your way round! Lol idk if that's because I'm playing on handheld hence the screen is smaller? But sometimes I get seriously lost and can't see a way out or think that's too far too jump.
I'm loving the super shotgun! Pure dynamite in your hands lol

@Deathwalka I've gotten lost no less then 3 times in the first 3 areas so you're not alone.

@Deathwalka It's not just you. I got lost when I first played the demo on PC. The areas are well-designed, though, and it's easier to find your way than in something like Dark Souls, where I can lose my ways for hours on end.

@Ralizah oh yeah the areas are designed really well. I wish there were some weather effects though, I'm a fan of rain and snow, as I think it adds a lot of immersion so that's one thing I would love, is a bit of variety in environments.
