I'm a 22 years old italian.
I would like to know what you think about my pics so fell free to comment :)

I have a Skype account:

The failure of being a coward: Doom 4.

This is a open letter to Bethesda and ID software.

I know. I know you are scared. Doom 4 has revealed itself to be a production black-hole.

I can understand. You failed pretty most of it's development times and if rumors are correct it's better that you cleaned the board and started from scratch, with a new engine too it seems.

All this seems fine and promising...but is hot air.

Do not get me wrong. I will buy Doom 4. of course. I do not have to make that decision, it's already decided as I bought and will buy any ID software related title. But I am a old and decrepit gamer, I am a REAL gamer, one that wants it's game to be something, not to pose as something, and one that buys title from developers that always delivered good experiences...

but most of the people are not like this.

Hell, quite the opposite.

So I am bewildered when I read about your will to answer the huge silence of the title, that now is on par with DUKE NUKEM FOREVER for all we can know, with more silence.

We had a not amazing CGI trailer, that just confirmed there is at least one Cyberdemon in the game, and a rather insulting closed door demo at quake con, insulting because it seems it was showed “to show something to [id Software fans] that gives them the confidence that it is still a viable studio that’s doing really cool stuff”.

As far Pete Hines(PR guy) says...

but you do not showed anything to ID Software fans... or you thing that those bunch of guys sitting in the Quakecon room was a DECENT PERCENTUAL OF PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BUY DOOM 4...

how many people was there? 300? 500? 1000?

and those people are the ID software fans that need to calmed down?

no. they are not. You could not even THOUGHT that even a little fraction of EUROPEAN AND ASIAN CONSUMER was there to attend at Quakecon.

Doom 3 got out in 2004, now we are 10 years after that day, and the only thing doom related was the shoddy BFG edition that looked worse than modded doom 3 (that make it look like a real modern game, so there IS a problem).

In ten years we need to wait a whole year for have a 2015 reveal, AFTER you already revealed it to a close bunch of people? Because the “game is not ready” but is enough ready to be shown to a limited audience? And then what about the release? 2016? 2017?

You did not want to reveal it yet? Do not show the trailer, let alone a real time demo as you said the Quakecon showed reel was...

or maybe, you actually do not have ANYTHING to show? What you showed at Quakecon was just a special created cutscene in a game engine...

what, that would mean that you ARE producing Duke Nukem Forever...

or simply you are afraid that it could get shunned and laughted at, but be prepared because that will happen anyway.

DooM is an old game, a old game that is already considered in a “dying state”...

Half Life 2 killed Doom 3 for the critics, the movie was utter shit, the hd version is rather bad and no real tangible news for the new title...

a year more? Yes, is not much, it just means that the game will be washed away by the better showed games of the competitions. they shows everything, maybe never release what they show, but show it either way...

after all, most “gamers” today never played or even know what DooM is... and they will not risk to buy it if they are not showed what the game is...

and that's is your failure because you are cowards and do not show what you are doing...

DooM 4. yes. DooM 4-ever...

thanks for your time.

Don't like DmC? Wanna good laugh?…
1r0zz0 Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
the big problem is that people just cannot realize that DmC is a BAD GAME.
now that someone killed the story, they are praising the combat system... or the animations... or the colors...

Geez, I just thought you would've had a good laugh. That style of nitpicking is usually for a good laugh.

Watch for a watch, thanks man :)
So then all of those reviews you had posted in the now defunct Not My Dante group are all gone? Do you plan on making any more reviews or are you done?
