Doom 64: wait even longer for this long-awaited re-release

Halfway’s excellent sequel is coming to all codecs in March

Doom 64 is coming to issues! Why did not I discuss this when it was introduced!? Did I discuss it when it was introduced? (Rapidly checks) I did not! I should be shedding my thoughts!!

Doom 64! That is the Doom sport for Nintendo 64! From 1997! It is coming to issues! Particularly, to Change, Xbox One, PlayStation four and PC. It’s lengthy been one of many foremost pipe dream re-releases for me and lots of different clever, good-looking folks. And, finally, it’s coming. Subsequent March. That’s… fully too distant. However then, Doom Everlasting, the no-doubt vastly inferior sport it’s presumably selling, has been delayed till then. Subsequently, as a (spit) pre-order bonus, Doom 64 can be on the bench. I used to be briefly apoplectic with white-hot rage that the one option to get Doom 64 can be to pre-order a £59.99 PS4 sport, however fortunately it’ll even be bought individually.

Why am I so enthusiastic about Doom 64, I hear you ask? Certainly it’s simply an inferior port of id software program’s demon-perforating masterpiece? Unsuitable! Unsuitable, you fool! It’s an entire new sport! A complete new set of ranges with model new graphics and many cool new stuff! In a number of methods, Doom 64 is a extra trustworthy follow-up to Hell on Earth than id’s polarising Doom three, with that traditional OG Doom gameplay married to among the most attention-grabbing maps within the sequence. It retains the thicker ambiance of the PlayStation 1 Doom with its foreboding music and lighting, but additionally brings in a way of enjoyable with its secret gimmick ranges and memorably uncommon traps.

Right here’s hoping that is the beginning of a bizarre pattern and we get some extra traditional console variations of largely PC-centric video games. Duke Nukem 64 will do for a begin, please and thanks.
