If it's not ZDoom, it goes here.

Wow, so there's actually quite a bit to decipher judging by the sole 3 seconds of footage:

-The SSG actually looks incredibly detailed and intricately designed. You can clearly see some filigree markings, scratches inside of the barrels, and even "00 Buckshot" on the ejected casings. Very impressive.
-The hand loading the shotgun is obviously that of the Doomguy. What makes it interesting is that the glove is very elaborate-looking, looking like a piece of true power armor, rather than the simpler gloves found in classic Doom. On the other hand, the glove itself does appear to be colored brown, like with the original gloves.
-At first, I wasn't quite sure of the Revenant's new design, but I actually find it to be nothing short of absolutely bitchin'.
-Firstly, the design is actually pretty practical for what's supposed to be an undead demon, and the missile launchers give off that impression, despite their comical appearance.
-Furthermore, I really appreciate the decision to cover the entire body in rotting flesh and various machinery, rather than just having gore on the midsection.
-Already, people are complaining that it looks too hunched over and therefore like an old man, but the thing is, the revenant was never exactly walking tall. Besides, it's much improved from the Doom 3 revenant, which I thought had a hokey appearance due to its smaller vest and transparent "skin."

Overall, I feel very confident in this new Doom. My only genuine concern is that of the story and how it's going to be handled. I understand the frustration behind the previous build of Doom 4 and how it was "too cinematic," but at the same time, I really don't want this new Doom to be nothing more than a Serious Sam/Painkiller clone.

Got any particular reasons for that, or did you just want to write a three word post?
It was insanely generic. If it wasn't for the Wolf franchise slapped on it it would've been another Call of Duty or Halo game.

Somehow, I get this feeling that you really didn't play it much, if that's your feelings about it...

I personally thought that the Revenant was just hunched over cause of all the crap it's lugging around. I know I would be, had I two huge ass rocket launchers strapped to my back/shoulders.

Also, is it just me, or do the textures on everything look 100x clearer on everything in that video than RAGE's were? Shit in RAGE was blurry as hell when you stood still and looked at it.

Bear in mind that this is E3 material. The final version will look nothing like it. Just take a look at Bioshock 2 for example.

The production crunches and times these days can't be super quickly replaced in a month. Considering how notmuchdifferent Rage was in 2007 compared to the final, It'll surely look like this.

I genuinely don't know how anyone can have any strong feelings one way or the other from 3 seconds of non-gameplay footage.

Those tiny 3 seconds could possibly mean 35 hours of great gameplay.

The Doomguy is most probably going to be an F-bomb dropping Hollywood tough guy, judging by Wolf TNO. :( Why can't they keep silent guys. Half-Life did it just fine!!!
