The lights are on
Doom is the grandfather of the modern shooter, originating many of the things we've come to know and love about gory first-person experiences. But does it still hold up today? Yep. The PlayStation 1 port? Maybe not as much.
Join Jeff Marchiafava, Joe Juba, Andrew Reiner, and I as we blast through a few demon-infested levels, discuss the proper coloring of explosive barrels, and try to imagine a world in which something called the "fistol" exists. Stay tuned in for the Replay Roulette where I force Joe to play the PS1 adaptation of a TV show from my childhood. Spoiler alert: He is displeased.
Digging our commentary on top of old games? Check out a whole lot more of it -- over 100 episodes! -- on our Replay hub.
Alright, the next episode is up. Also, Joe Juba? Displeased? Unimaginable.
I recently bought the ps1 port of Doom, got the longbox of it. I think they made it creepier with have atmospheric background music and with the new monster sounds. I also liked the new gun sounds. Interesting tidbit, the sound effects used in the ps1 port were used in Doom 64.
The controls for ps1 doom kinda suck only because we are used to dual analog controls now. PC Doom still plays well though and stand up today.
Awwesome! I loved playing this back in the day. Let's see how it holds up.
RIP AND TEAR!!! This is perhaps the best game ever made!
I had the 32X version when I was a kid and boy was I horrible at it.
Oh Doom for the PS1, the hours of fun I had with you lol. Never liked the controls much though. And jeeeeeeze how is he not able to get out of that room haha!
I think I made it through maybe half of this power rangers game when it was released. Luckily I borrowed it out of boredom and lack of games to play at the time. Really don't think I'd want to go back to it lol.
And it still holds up as a really tight shooter.
