Just watched it, yep it's nuts. Every addition looks awesome, the grappling hook, the dashing, the predator arm thing. Can't wait.

i remember the day i got DOOM II, i bought it on CD-ROM (it was one of my first CD-ROMs), and a friend had Myst. lol.

never thought that 25 years later i'd be excited for a new sequel to an already great remake. WOLF3D was mindblowing, DOOM was amazing, DOOM II was great, Ultimate DOOM was good timez, the expansion packs, they were ok but obviously made by modders. not very interesting modders either (i was a DOOM modder, made wads, enjoyed the Aliens TC, etc.) Doom 3 was kind of a bummer. DOOM itself was kind of obsolete by that point, no longer pushing graphics or gameplay, the Quake Arena paradigm had long since taken over, Arena style gameplay, multiplayer shooters, basically the future of what everything is now. but DOOM was dormant for a long time. it's exciting to see this new wave of awesome games. all they had to do was run with their original inspiration after all!

Doom was doing multiplayer from the beginning, ironically enough. now it's best as a single player game. it was a lot of fun to do the original LAN and Serial modem Deathmatches & Co op runs in the first two DOS games. i used to run serial cable between PCs to play co op on DOOM II and that was so much fun. they would throw in all these random Cyberdemons and additional enemies depending on the mode you played. more weapons and items too. just more mayhem. i love it.

Does anyone know for sure if the Collector's Edition is sold out on GameStop or are they waiting to take pre-orders? I just can't see how it could sell out in one fucking day.

I got my pre-order in at GameStop.com. I guess they weren't taking them yet. Thank god. I really wanted this one.

The MP is the only thing that I'm a tiny bit disappointed about with Doom Eternal. I knew the SP would be amazing and they look like they've completely smashed it out of the park but since the MP is also being developed by id this time I was hoping that the MP would be amazing as well.

For me personally I was hoping for just a basic deathmatch mode where everyone starts with the same weapon, no loadouts or special abilities. Just a classic straight arena deathmatch to fill the void left by Quake 3 Arena.

Maybe there just isn't much of a market for that kind of mode in modern times but I was hoping id would be able to give the old-school fans some fan service in that regard.

It's not in anyway a deal breaker at all and the game is easily my most anticipated game of this year but it's a mild disappointment that I didn't get my basic arena deathmatch mode. Oh well, maybe Quake will be rebooted one day.

This blaring through my headphones while I play may actually result in me splitting my pants. Last soundtrack was amazing and this sounds like it's going to be just as good if not better.

So many gibs. ^_^

I can't wait to see the RTX methods implemented in the game. Should look amazing.
