    Hah nice. I've unlocked all the single player milestones apart from 1... Complete the game on Ultra Nightmare. I had a quick go just to see how I'd fare and got killed right before the end of level 2. Didn't even see it coming. bahaha.

    Finished the game. Definitely way more intense and more challenging and way more fun then 2016 although it probably overdid the platforming element a bit. The 2016 version seems easier by comparison now where once you get the super shotgun, you can kill everything. In Eternal it is not so easy as you have to face enemies like the Marauder where timing is more important then just super shotgun blazing away. Loved this new game. Highly recommend it.

    I just got past the Marauder and I'll say that I'm not a fan. Given how noisy this game is and the reliance on mobility, it's really cheap to put in an enemy that requires perfect distancing that you have to manage while constantly trying to get away from everything else.

    the irony is the last time they tried to mix Quake and Doom (Doom 3 anyone) they got the mix a bit wrong.

    haha am I seriously still the only one who absolutely loved Doom 3? Doom bias aside? I re-bought it on PS4 recently and then Switch too, genuinely love that game. on topic yeah this is very Quake Arena-inspired, for sure, but it is still very well done and fun as hell. so much platforming though :( I've only just gotten to Earth for first time. but being FIFO, work has changed our rosters to 2 weeks on/2 off for covid, to reduce flights/airport time. so while I might be away for 2 weeks, can't wait to get those next 2 off to really hook in :D

    I loved Doom 3. I played it years after it was released and was still hugely impressed. I thought the flashlight mechanic was great, and I really enjoyed the occasional puzzle element (simple though they were).

    Save files are corrupted VERY easily from my experience of the few crashes I've had. It's easy to lose your progress, recommend backups after each session :thumbup:.

    Nice. I still play it, only reason i said what i said was that every time Doom 3 gets mentioned it is usually hated on and im always like 'whaaaat, how? Why?' Haha

    Touch wood, PS4 hasnt been crashing at all, but yeah as i mentioned other day, heaps of mid-fight Bethesda disconnects which pauses everything and prevents challenge/unlock progress until you sign back in

    All I can think during that clip is 'WHY HAVE YOU NOT COMPLETED YOUR SUPER SHOTTY MASTERY?!' as you missed so much armor opportunity.

    Haha only just got super shotty! Does it give armor on kills if you do the challenges?

    Also last year I recall devs saying you could infiltrate mates games and control an enemy. That never happened eh?

    When you hook something it applies a burning effect similar to the flame belch and they drop armour in the same way from damage.
