5214672 No.5214672 [Reply] [Original] [archived.moe]

Yesterday, On Doom's 25th anniversary, John Romero announced an upcoming unofficial Episode 5 for the original Doom to be released in February.

The mod will (OF COURSE) be free. But there is also a boxed "Collector's Edition" that comes in 2 versions (with one considerably more expensive than the other). (This was skipped over (presumably mistakenly) in the Doom General, so I'm making a thread for it for people who missed the announcement.)

>>5217494
>Q: How did you choose the music for the levels?

> A: It was a gruelling decision process to choose which Pikes to use in SIGIL. There are literally hundreds of choices to consider. The decision process came down to song length and mood. One of the levels is very dark, so I chose a super creepy song that is really different from the rest. I also like the longer songs to have fast and slow parts that might sync with the action onscreen.

Sounds like there is midi music for the levels as well as the buckethead CD.

BFG Edition, and also I think the Classic Complete release.
I think the latter dummied out the Nazi iconography from the Wolfenstein levels, and reworked the SS Troopers to generic Zombiemen (but with fucked up sprite offsets, suggesting someone just hurriedly loaded them into the .wad and didn't bother testing them or fixing them up).

BFG Edition was a re-release of Doom 3, for modern PCs, but also for consoles, so you could play it on XBox360 and the PS3. It included the expansion Resurrection Of Evil, as well as a small XBox exclusive campaign.
In the original Doom 3, there is a flashlight, but it's a weapon you select, and you can't shoot a gun while using it, only swing the flashlight as a club, and it sucks.
In the BFG Edition, the flashlight weapon was deleted, your flashlight instead being mounted on your armor, and having a limited, recharging battery, like in Half-Life, you'd just toggle it with a button. This is much more practical, and somewhat mirrors the popularity of various flashlight mods.
Some say this ruins the horror atmosphere, but I'll be blunt, Doom 3's atmosphere for horror is quite limited and repetitive, if you've had one of its cheap jumpscares, you've had them all, you kind of grow immune to them in short order, just finding them trite and frustrating. I'd much rather just have the better flashlight contributing to making it a better shooter, and skip the weak horror charade.

BFG Edition also came with the old games; Ultimate Doom, Doom 2, and also the episode 'No Rest For The Living', which previously was exclusive to the XBLA port for the original XBox. No Rest For The Living is pretty good actually, hard, but fun. If you haven't played it on console, you can download the .wad and play it on PC with whatever sourceport you fancy, would recommend.
Playing the old games, I'd say they've got great controls, compared to some of the original console ports.

I'm assuming because of the physical copies. The .wad itself will be free, but I guess he wants the incentive to remain, so that two months from now, it won't be "Whatever, I already played it."

Could also be that it still needs polish, we've seen what, two or three levels or so? There's more that needs to be done, and we've only seen the Deathmatch arena of one map I think.

This just reeks of trying to cash in on another company's IP through his past association. He should just make his own game. In fact if this isn't promotion for a new game called Sigil, then I don't see the point.

He should retrace the ID's series. First make a 3D game with low polygon environment and 2D sprites. Low budget, tests the water for interest. This can re-use the maps from Sigil for episode 1. Then if this game is a hit, make a fully 3D game with more complex lighting and more polygons (roughly equivalment for Quake or Quake II). Keeps the budgets low, and focus on gameplay and action.

Who knows? People have asked about it on his stream, but he's been quiet, his wife haven't answered anything either.

It was called Blackroom, and he announced it a while ago, but apparently he felt that he got a too lukewarm response and thus wanted to retool it some.
Ever since, he hasn't mentioned it, some suspect the collector boxes are intended to raise needed money for Blackroom's further development, but on the other hand he also said that if Sigil is successful enough, he'd love to do another levelpack, which seems like it would conflict with the busy development of another game (even if building levels for a game such as Doom is rather quick and simple, particularly with modern programs such as Doombuilder, as compared to how much more modern games often construct their maps).

Honestly I'd be pretty glad if the levels hover somewhere at the level of early E4 difficulty, they're hectic and tense in how you're constrained with supplies and have to avoid injury, and to make the most out of monster infighting and the ammo you have available.
Maybe tone down the amount of Barons (not removing them), because trying to face off with like three of those at once when you'd struggle to have the ammo needed for just two can be more tedious than fun.

But then again, Ultra-Violence is Ultra-Violence, it's meant to be the hardest.

If you admit you suck at the game, it's absolutely not Kaizo tier. Kaizo tier would imply it can literally only be played by 100% perfect rote memorization, and you have to struggle through endless repetition, cruel fake-outs, and unwinnable scenarios.

Neither TNT nor Plutonia qualify as any of that. They're designed to be harder than the original game, but they're they're not by any means among the hardest.
For that matter, they do have difficulty levels, if you can't do Plutonia on Ultra-Violence, then don't do Ultra-Violence, there's always Hurt Me Plenty or Hey Not Too Rough
They're not bad design at all (well, the last couple of levels of TNT could be much better, but most of that .wad is good).

I hope Romero won't continue with his annoying habit of making narrow corridors and even narrower platforms for his levels.

It all started around Doom 2, when he grew a habit of making hard to move around platforms in levels like Tenements or Living End, or narrow corridors like in Abandoned Mines.

That went even worse in the atrocity called E4M2, which was an unplayable level. E4M6 also had this habit of "platform above, lava below" shit, and you have to know all parts of the level to survive.

Tech Gone Bad was going back to classic style a bit, but it still had some of these issues, but they were tolerable. E1M4b got into an alarming level of narrow platforming again, but still more or less ok.

But from what I see in the Twitch, now we are back at E4M2/E4M6/Map29 style, and that means no freedom of movement, lots of catwalk platforms and other annoyances.

C'mon John, you know better what made Doom good: fast and free movement. Why the hell did you restrict the player from moving well around the level? Fix these issues before release ffs.

There are some major setbacks, though. The lighting is 'softer' and not as dark, taking away from the original aesthetic. Textures are also lower quality than they were on the ultra setting in OG Doom 3.
I'd honestly recommend just playing Doom 3 and installing the duct tape flashlight mod, and killpixel's widescreen crosshair (assuming you go down that route).

Here's a link to Romero's videos., https://www.twitch.tv/theromero/videos .

Yeah, it's doesn't look that good and you wouldn't expect it to be that good. After all, with so many thousands of custom doom levels made over the past 25 years, there is god-tier stuff out there that this isn't going to get close to touching.

Sigil is mainly for nostalgic people who are fans of Romero.

I don't see the point of shitting on this for it not being god tier. All you can really expect is something mediocre with a few interesting moments here and there. Plus you get the satisfaction of playing something made by Romero himself, if you are interested in that.

>> No.5235975

>>5235209
The twitch videos didn't look good, but the snippets in the trailer looked awesome. Particularly that hide and seek game with the cyber with zigzags on the ceiling. That looks like god tier.

Also Tech Gone Bad was god tier. Phobos Mission Control was demigod tier. It had flaws, but those pool areas were sexy.

So I'm optimistic. Also godtier userlevels are rare. Some people are wanking to the likes of Ancient Aliens or BTSX, but I found both to be goddamn boring beyond the ostentatious and sprawling presentation.

I expect Sigil to be the best thing for Doom since NRFTL.

I don't expect them to be anything other than meat and potatoes levels. That's fine. He's clearly not going for anything complex (which he shouldn't, because then it wouldn't feel like the classic experience, which I'm pretty sure is what everyone REALLY hopes that this will be like).
