I wish the normal melee was worth a fuck, the blood punch is great but I wish the normal melee was decent.
Vulkan gives you better performance. You should get more fps if it's enabled.This thread has inspired me to check the reboot series out. I never played Doom (2016), as my PC's hardware was below the minimum when it came out and I didn't own a current generation console. I upgraded my PC a year ago for Mortal Kombat 11, and currently own an Xbox One X, so that's no longer an issue!
I got around to trying the Doom (2016) PC demo last night. The graphics are fantastic, and I only played on the default settings the game set for me (mostly High and Medium). GeForce Experience can't optimize it because it's the demo, it seems, but it's showing I should be running a lot of stuff on Ultra and High, so I'm going to write its Optimized settings down and try them later.
For the gameplay, I'm a massive fan of The Ultimate Doom, and this game feels like a more faithful reboot of it over Doom 3 (which I also loved), but having said that, some of the mechanics feel odd to me, and the overall gameplay seemed just okay. Not awful or anything, but nothing to write home about. I'm not understanding all the hype around the reboot franchise based off my initial experience with the demo, but I want to give it another go on a harder difficulty.
I also noticed the game has an Open GL and a Vulkan mode. I've never used Vulkan before. For those of you in the know, what's the general difference between the two versions?
My system is:
I'm also curious how the PC version on my system compares to the Xbox One X version, as the Xbox One version of the game is currently on sale for 50% off.
- Intel Core i5 4440 @ 3.10 GHz (this is my system's weakest link, and just above the game's minimum requirement)
- 16 GB of (I believe) DDR3 Ram
- nVidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Windforce OC 6G with the latest drivers
- Traditional, non-SSD HDD
- Windows 10 Home November 2019 Update
Damn, he annoyed the fuck out of me, but I kept trying to do what the tutorial said and never bothered to look online to see if any other tactics worked, lol.Just a little run against the Marauder. He's easy once you know how to bait his attacks.
The Marauder can still get cheesed out even after the recent updates. Doing the whole SSG+Grenade+Ballista+SSG (Rinse and repeat) can delete him in seconds.Damn, he annoyed the fuck out of me, but I kept trying to do what the tutorial said and never bothered to look online to see if any other tactics worked, lol.
I liked the game alot, felt alot like classic doom, just like 2016 did. I did miss though that you never were really surprised with monsters, you always knew from the map what areas had them and in between there usually wasn't anything to worry about. Same thing with the secrets; you couldn't really miss the automap, so you never really could miss any of the secret stuff.
Agreed with the buff totems, they were just dumb. The arch vile could be irritating as well, I'd die until I eventually learn where & when he'd spawn, then i'd just bfg him immediately.
Slayer gates were fun, except when I beat one and the game crashed and had to do it again. That happened on a different one too, but fortunately the key was there for me to pick up that time. Arc complex was buggy as hell; I had to replay the parking garage eight times before I was able to get to the checkpoint and save before it crashed out.
There's a single player expansion coming for free as well, at least part 1 is. I think next week, looking forward to that.
He can be cheesed but I think he still serves his purpose because 90% of players won't know about this exploit. Guarnteed in the next Doom the Marauder will have something like temporary invulnerability after he is shot once for a few seconds.The Marauder can still get cheesed out even after the recent updates.

Could be. What I would want atm is the new single-player DLC and a kind of endless horde mode. Doom Eternal's gameplay screams for a horde mode IMO.He can be cheesed but I think he still serves his purpose because 90% of players won't know about this exploit.
