    Don't forget about Doom 64 being ported to current gen, it comes with your pre-order of Doom Eternal but also will be available to purchase separately. I heard it'll be like $5.00? I won't be able to shell out for Eternal right away but i will def be all over 64.

    (i also realize 64 has been free in some fashion on PC through roms and modding for some time, however it's nice to have an official release provided it functions as it should though)

    Is this the one that was it's own Doom, or was that Final Doom for PS?

    D64 was a separate development instead of direct port, it's got its own set of maps, darker graphics and soundtrack, lacks chaingunners, revenants and arch-viles, adds ghost imps, new boss, new gun.

    Going to buy just the basic version of Eternal, because not interested in all preorder stuff incl. D64.

    Some people even treat it as kind of a true sequel to Doom 2 as opposed to Doom 3.

    Doom 3 just sticks out like a sore thumb for me in the series. Eternal is everything I expected it to be... BADASS. Cannot wait to dive into it more later tonight.

    Eternal really asks you to play on a harder difficulty. Hurt me plenty is just way too easy! Started on Ultra Violence.

    Okay, I'm playing Doom 64 and I'm on the third level, Main Engineering, and the music makes prominent use of a sample that's used heavily in Closer (Precursor).



    Makes me wonder what the origin of that sample is!

    Okay, back to Doom 64.

    I've never played Doom 64..I always thought it looked so bland and dull and more like the first Quake game than a Doom game.

    ...but for $5, I might just pick it up on the Switch tomorrow.

    Yeah i could have sworn i recognized a sample in there while i was playing as well only i thought it might have been something from the opening few seconds of Sin.

    EDIT: There very well could be more than one, I'm not sure that i picked up on the one from Closer Precursor so maybe the one i heard is in a later level? Hmm let us know if you hear any more!

    Of course the Doom 64 soundtrack is 3 hours and 43 minutes...

    Aubrey Hodges did the music and sound design; based on how he was doing other things at the time I'd guess this is an "alert" or "death" SFX used for one of the creatures in Doom (manipulated, of course). Hell, maybe it's the door opening.

    Who wants to sift through thousands of SFX?

    I initially didn't like Doom 64 after I downloaded it...but man, I'm hooked now. fun! figuring out the levels can be kind of annoying but that's what makes it addicting at the same time. I'm hooked. It's perfect on the Switch Lite.

    after I beat it, I'll download Doom 3, which I've also never played. then I'll move on to the Turok series.

    It's actually way more fun than I thought it would be...

    I agree. stuck on one level though. can't get the yellow key! it's stuck behind a cage and on a block that goes up and down. can't figure out the puzzle lol. still really enjoying it though.

    I’m enjoying this way more than I expected! I bought animal crossing, Nioh 2 and this and so far I’m enjoying this by far the most. Maybe it will change but I thought Nioh 2 was going to be the game that sucked my life away but it’s this one by a big margin. Highly recommended
