Actual Answer: ---
Winner: --- // Winning Bet: ---
playing Doom on console in controller. something i cant imagine.
this game design to play with KB/M.
well it is better on mouse and keyboard, mostly because of how effortlessly you can switch through weapons, but it plays pretty well on controller.
It could use some more aiming sensitivity options like different sensitivity curves and such but all in all I had no issue playing through it on ultra violence. I think on Nightmare you would see a big advantage using mouse and keyboard tho.
Yeah I noticed that when trying Doom 2, seems really choppy on my big screen, although playing the Switch version of Doom 2 (now that it's patched) doesn't have the same issue.
yes, the recently released ports have been patched to run at 60fps I think.
@b-cell they included Doom 1 and Doom 2 in fact. but they are not the best versions. it seems they tried to run them as close to the original versions as possible. meaning they run at 35FPS, which doesn't look great on a 60hz TV because it was designed for 70hz PC monitors.
so they stutter a bit when played on console.
I imagine on PC this is not an issue
I don't get the issues people have with the Marauders to be completely honest. After getting my strategy down they are dead within 15sec max.
you super shotgun them, quick switch to hit them with the Ballista, quick switch back to the super shotgun for a final hit.
do that like 3 times and he's dead.
If anything, his freaking dog/wolf is the annoying part.
I played on Ultra-Violence only so far, so I don't know if I too would hate that enemy more on Nightmare.
and about the ammo situation, well, the chainsaw now auto regens to 1 charge after like 20sec I think, so enemies are your ammo crates, it keeps you moving and aggressive at all times and keeps you from loading up on tons of Heavy Cannon ammo and just shoot everyone from miles away. It's a deliberate design decision to keep the player close to the enemies and make camping far away less of a viable option.
I have absolutely zero issue with it, and I can't see a logical reason to see this as a negative as you always have a chainsaw charge when you need it, and if you don't that means you're really bad at aiming.
in Doom 2016 the chainsaw was more like a super move if you are ever in a dire situation, it didn't auto recharge and you got way less charges inside the levels.
that's another thing the lower ammo count forces you to do, AIM... you can't just spam like a crazy person without actually trying to use your ammo effectively or you will run out before your chainsaw recharges in some fights.
again, I can't see any way to see this as a negative... the new ammo balancing forces you to hit your shots, use your ammo wisely and it keeps you close to the action and keeps you from distance camping.
and the game compliments the new focus of drawing you closer to the enemies by giving you instant access to the double jump and you get the boost ability really early as well. so you have the ability to dodge attacks better than in the first one where you weren't forced to be as close to the fights as in Eternal.
