So... I haven't loaded a save game yet since I only played once so far for a little while... How does it work? Based on your posts it sounds like you can't stop and save in the middle of a level.  Is that accurate?

You can stop in the middle of your furthest level and go and play previously completed levels without erasing your furthest progress.  It's kind of nice really. There's separate options for resume vs replay.

I can't get enough of this game. The combat is fast and fun. The levels get huge and there's tons of nooks and crannies for the OCD explorer! 

My only "complaint" is about the hugeness of the levels.  It creates a similar problem that I had with the recent Wolfenstein games where I really love it, but I need to make sure I set aside enough time to play through a level in one go (or at least where I know I'll be able to follow up the following night).  If you stop midway through, you have to kind of get back into the flow of the map, which can actually add a lot of time to the next play.

I know it's not really fair to complain about that, but it makes it hard to jump into the game sometimes.

I can see that being the case as I am on level 4 and it seems massive.  Replaying to find secrets sounds like it could get lame because you have to play through the entire thing.

This is a later iteration of the engine with far, far less of those problems. If you're seeing low-res textures, you might be pushing your graphics card too hard.

I'll be playing on PS4, but Rage pop in was so bad I couldn't play more than an hour without getting annoyed.

Rage was their first attempt at using id Tech 5, and it was much improved with patches. Doom is using id Tech 6. That people generally no longer complain about the engine should be a good enough clue that it works.

Thanks, looks like my fears were unfounded as I didn't even notice it happen once in a couple hours.

This game is fun and not like I expected it would play, it really feels like a modern skin on OG Doom.  The melee deaths are actually kind of neat and useful too.  I will say it does not look quite as nice as the trailers made it look though.  For the record I am also playing through Uncharted 4 at the same time, so that might skew my opinion on the visuals.

Does this have the same awful texture pop that Rage had on PS4?

My friend playing it last night said it was exactly like Rage with those problems.  He's still enjoying it, but said it was quit blurry at times (on PC playing on Ultra).

Uggggggggh dammit

- the actor playing Kylo Ren seemed like a terrible choice, he always seems like a whiny loser to me. 

As I said to another friend who kept complaining about Kylo, look at who his grandfather and uncle are, and you'll realize the whole family is generations of whiny losers.  So in that respect, they chose pretty much perfectly lol.

+1 for reals.

I heard another interesting theory:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Supreme Leader Snoke is a clone of Luke made from his hand that they recovered along with the lightsaber.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I also wondered if he was a clone, but I thought it was the emperor, not Luke.  In the official art of the force awakens book, they said the design of Snoke they went for was supposed to *not* look like the emperor, to distance the big bad from that trilogy and this one.  I think he still looks old and decrepit, like the emperor did though.

There are only X-Wings and TIE Fighters in this movie when it comes to starfighters, but these aren't the same models from the old movies. The X-Wings are pretty similar in most regards, but are now so effective that they're probably the standard fighter for the Resistance, whereas X-Wings were in limited supply back in the Rebellion era. The old model was the T-65B, while this new one is called T-70. The biggest difference between the two models that I can see is that the T-70 features an underslung blaster cannon that the pilot can aim independently of the ship.

The new x-wings have a split engine with one half on each wing.  The old ones were not like that.  

Yeah, I wasn't really looking at visual qualities when I was writing that. I'm more into the technical specs. smile

Trivia: The new X-Wing look is actually based on the original sketches for A New Hope, so in some ways it's the old X-Wing look.

Yep!

My GOTY is Mad Max.  I loved how they handled the license.  The visuals, ground and car combat were really fun.  The repetitive nature did not bother me so much.  It was the most fun I had gaming this year.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Rey is.....Luke's kid?  Too many connections.  Dropped off on desert planet.  Good pilot and mechanics.  Looks just like young Leia and Padme.  Had flashbacks when touching the lightsaber?

I actually thought she was gonna be a solo kid too, so that surprised me.

Some fuck face spoiled the Kylo Ren thing for me months ago, really chaps my hide, but I still had fun with it. 

Snoke is who?  Emperor clone?

Han Solo rocked it.  Every line of his was perfect and I am sad that he had to go. 

That's all I can think of for me.  Just really loved it and can't wait to go back!


Spoiler for Hiden:
You're right about too many connections.  I also worry that Finn is force enhanced, explaining why he is the only stormtrooper, apparently in history, to overcome his conditioning.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I didn't even think about Finn being force sensitive, but I guess it makes sense too

This has turned into my GOTY for this year.  I absolutely love this game.  They totally nailed the license to a T.  The visuals are great, the combat is fun, the car combat is really fun.  It just really feels like you are playing a Mad Max movie.  I read some reviews after to see what the gripes were and I can see the issues with repetition.  I only really didn't like the mine sweeping parts.  The rest of them I really enjoyed and wished there was a way to do convoy attack runs on the fly.  I had waited for black friday for this to go on sale and now I wish I had bought it day one.  Great game!!

I am having a lot more fun with Supremacy mode.  Walker assault wasn't doing it for me.  Love the Fighter Squadron still too.  Needs more maps though, 4 maps is silly.  Wish there were more weapons and customization options too.  I think it's lame they locked the rebel alien species way down starting at level 40.  Hope it has legs and the expansions are good.  I fully expect it will tie into the new film.  I know the first free one deals with Jakku, but still 29 years before TFA.

Anyone playing want to comment on gameplay?

Most of what I have read is giving pretty mediocre reviews and questioning longevity for a primarily mp game.

Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk

The gameplay is extremely shallow and repetitive.  I was expecting battlefield with a star wars theme, but it's very basic gameplay.  The reviews that call out the game for mediocre gameplay are right on, in my opinion.  It does look and sound beautiful though.  And I do like the spaceship combat mode, even though reviews don't seem to keen on it.  Missed opportunity for sure.  Seems like it was catered to a more casual, wide reaching target group.
