Read the beginning of the post I made further up above.

GameRager: Didn't original doom have limited ammo types shared by guns as well(albeit with higher ammo limits)? I believe it did.

AB2012: Doom 1-2:-
Bullets = Pistol & Minigun. Max 200 (400 backpack)
Shells = Shotgun & Super-Shotgun. Max 50 (100 backpack)
Rockets = Rocket Launcher. Max 50 (100 backpack)
Cells = Plasma Launcher & BFG 9000. Max 300 (600 backpack)

If they water down Doom anymore, the next Doom game will involve ammo caps of 5 shells / 10 bullets, the chainsaw will be replaced with a walking frame and all maps will be indoors (so a small gust of wind doesn't blow Doomguy over...)
Doom 2021, flossing demons to death...
Just replayed a bit of Doom 2016 to remind myself of how bad the checkpoints are and by all that is unholy are they bad.

I first quit my session yesterday in the Foundry. Every time I try replaying the game, I quit at least once in that level. The checkpoints there are straight from hell.

Just had my second quit in Argent Tower when the character refused to grab a ledge and fell to his death, the result being put all the way before beginning the whole platforming section near the level start, resetting all combat and pickups along the way.

Another thing I hate is that you keep any challenge progress when you die (including weapon masteries). It literally incites the player to find a good checkpoint, perform the idiotic thing required in the challenge, off himself and repeat until the challenge is done so that he can proceed to play normally. Being rewarded for dying is stupid at best. So that is one improvement in Eternal. I haven't seen any combat challenges there.

Playing on Nightmare and I have no issues with the difficulty. My main issue and reason to stop playing for the day is wasting time due to a terrible save system which is also inconsistent and counter-productive to the game as a bonus. If the checkpoints at least had the decency to remember the exact state of the game when they got triggered (pickups you already got, which enemies are dead, challenge progress so that you can't farm it etc.) but no, let's just reset everything to a "supposed" state.

And regarding ammo, once you put 2 upgrades into ammo capacity, most of your ammo issues should be over. Add to that the ammo oriented runes and you will be literally drowning in ammo. So 2016 at least has that on Eternal.

Yahtzee weighs in :D

How does what he says measure up to the experiences of those who played? He acknowledges the whole "Now you have to chainsaw/flamethrow to get ammo/armour, but doesn't complain about it beyond how it changes the pace of combat.

As someone who enjoyed Doom 2016, I'm looking forward to this.
I didn't particularly care for the ammo collection through chainsawing mechanic there, but if they improved chainsawing (by easing up on the fuel necessary to use it constantly, which I hear they have), then I feel it could be ok.

You linked to the wrong thing, but yeah I'd agree with everything he said. They bloated it up with too many new mechanics and story, they made you have to chainsaw and such too often, but otherwise it's still pretty solid. I preferred 2016 though, and you might too.
