DOOM Eternal gameplay footage from QuakeCon


Recommended Posts

I actually think gameplay-wise this looks better than the first one but the entire aesthetic still really doesn't do it for me. 


The damage models to enemies are a cool improvement unless that was in the first one and I somehow don't recall. Biggest difference I noticed was the seeming absence of locked-in arena type areas unless it was just this particular level featuring more openly roaming enemies etc.

Coming to the Switch as well.


I was thinking about buying DOOM for the Switch, just so I could play it on the go... that was until I tried playing Fortnite with the Joycons and ugh... The pro controller works okay, but if you also need the controller... what's the point.


Also, games don't seem to go on sale for the Switch. You can get DOOM for the Xbox for like $15 bucks... on the Switch? $50 bucks... for a lesser version.
