    Hm. Hopefully they're doing more to it than just a flat remake. It was such an amazing game, but I still remember it like the back of my hand.. I'd have it finished in about two hours!

    Glottis though.. Love that guy.

    The car Glottis made was fantastic when you go into the world of the living! I had this for PC I hope they release the new version for PC too

    (Coincidentally I may have just found myself a new desktop to add to the cycle at work, given all-but-two of them are video game related)

    Played about 8 games of Battlefield Hardline on the PS4 yesterday. Lots of fun.

    No Man's Sky was GOTS for me personally, Ori was my favorite XB1 game. Bloodborne needed more gameplay, but glad its confirmed. Batman and Uncharted looked fantastic too. GTA looks a real step up in terms of quality on current gen.

    Make the original doom, with updated graphics and I'd be happy.

    Thanks. Learn something new every day. I thought the big thing with Doom was that it was one of the first 3D polygon first person shooters (wasn't it Castle Wolfenstein that predates Doom? also by ID). Seems like they cheated in places I wonder what was first not to use any sprites and do it all in polygons then?

    The ground-breaking thing was MULTI-LEVELLED MAPS and also SPRITES FOR WHEN THE ENEMIES FACED AWAY FROM YOU iirc
