Nevermind that controller! Not sure how someone can look at a free copy of Doom 64 ported to PC and next gen consoles as a bad thing!
The controller is ok tbh.
I use an svideo + framemeister but i can for the life of me make n64 games not look like smeared vomit.

Meanwhile the ps1 looks amazing 🤣

Well for one.
The video output on the n64 is ASS
Absolutely horrid. Not to mention, 30fps, with massive dips on the last level too.

Even the old PC ports /emulators I've played run at 60fps on an old laptop, not to mention higher resolution.

The beginning of next year is stacked. It's gonna be really busy. Also, Switch version not releasing at the same time is disappointing.

There is a certain irony that they announce the game is being delayed 4 months while simultaneously announcing that invasions will now be added post launch.

You can tell this game needs a delay or 2.

Too many games this year anyway.
Uh, 2019 might be the first year in the history gaming without a single game I'd be interested in buying.

It's fucking disgusting that this game is getting delayed that long and still WON'T have coop, by the way.

Doom games without coop. What a fucking joke.

You guys say some weird stuff "what's a Doom game without co-op" and "what's a Doom game without deathmatch?" I grew up on Doom, got it first for SNES, then PC then Doom ll, did the discs full of level packs as well. I always played by myself, never online. The game was amazing that way, didn't need this other crap.

What kind of s video cable?

The funny thing is, the framemeister isn't that great. It has lag and produces serious noise in solid colors. For the price, its absolute garbage.

N64 on a crt looks pristine. N64 on my retrotink 2 and sony fald looks pretty decent.

Ps1 lacks n64s analytical edge AA / texture filtering and has serious dithering anytime particles/shadows are on screen. It is less blurry, but messier.

The only thing disgusting is your whiny attitude.

It's just a video game. Get a fucking grip.

I don't understand the Doom 64 anticipation when it emulates so well. I've been playing it for years in HD and a high framerate.

Eternal went from a buy to rent/sale for me. That's just absolutely insane to put it next to all those games.
My hype for eternal died once i experienced project brutality 3.0
On countless wads like back to saturn x, dark moon, valiant, knee deep in zdoom i could go on... And on

ff7 is not interesting to me,
Cyberpunk 2077 still MIGHT be terrible
Tsushima will be great, Last of Us 2 is questionable so far but still probably worth buying.
New Doom looks like a "wat for a deal"
YEP - Too many games! In 360/ps3 2005-2012 there were more worthwhile games each month I feel.

We're 5 points apart, it all comes down to Shenmue 3 + Dreams being better than Pokémon and Call of Duty. It's gonna be close.

Bug off. Doom has been maligned far too many times. They just can't get it right. I'd prefer it if they just stopped making them honestly since they obviously don't know how to do it.

Oh yeah, things got exciting again. I suspect we both have a low-80s and a high-80s there. Down to the wire!

Also this will give a change to Edge magazine to do a full special preview of DOOM Eternal.
Even now Retro Gaming magazine have a special issue with DOOM.
