The graphics in Doom 4 will be truly amazing. It’s too dark to see them, but trust me… they’re there!

    So the cover to Doom 4 is the Monolith from 2001: Space Odyssey ?

  2. Dudewin on January 31st, 2011 11:32 am

    I guess this is what they mean with black humor…

    DOOM: now Blind-Friendly!

    If you stare into the screenshot long enough, the screenshot stares back at you.

    I know games are getting darker and edgier, but this is ridiculous!

    I "See" What You Did There

  7. SenileZombie on January 31st, 2011 11:52 am

    Shiver in horror as you are assaulted from all directions by monsters you cannot even SEE!
    TREMBLE with excitement as you jump across a bottomless pit!
    SUE with frustration and get your god damn 50 dollars back!

    Well, imo Crisis 3 will have such superior graphics, that it will just fire an awesomeness lazer straight out of your monitor, instead of showing you "the game".

    Also, link related to optional salvation:

    Doom 5 will be so dark you won't be able to see the box, dvd, or even your PC without a flashlight.

  10. MasqueNoMercy on January 31st, 2011 12:18 pm

    if only the doom movie was so dark you couldnt see it… although you could probably tell the terrible story and acting from just listening to it

  11. invadingduck on January 31st, 2011 12:18 pm

    It's the Emporer's Grafics!
    Only the the most 1337 can see it!

  12. Wetmang on January 31st, 2011 12:47 pm

    Doom, the highest employer of unrealistic shadows in the industry

  13. CakeBard on January 31st, 2011 12:54 pm

    REAL men don't need their retinas when fighting monsters!

  14. C__F on January 31st, 2011 1:03 pm

    Just look at that marvelous HUD! Seriously, most games need to keep an aesthetically pleasing Heads Up Display like Doom 4's. It's engineered from the ground up to deliver vital information almost subconsciously to the player.

    And don't get me started on the graphics.

  15. Leo E. on January 31st, 2011 1:16 pm

    Black? Pfft. Don't they know? Real is brown!

  16. Strike_low on January 31st, 2011 1:34 pm

    Now we are totally DOOMed! (or Gloom?)

  17. Cookino on January 31st, 2011 1:45 pm

    What? You think this is dark? I can clear this game blindfolded!

  18. Marzen on January 31st, 2011 2:45 pm

    Reminds me of a review for Doom 3 I once saw from the movie's special features

    "The game's dark, and I don't mean dark is in dark in tone, though it IS that as well. I mean dark as in 'I can't see a #$@!ing think in front of my face.'"

  19. Axel X on January 31st, 2011 3:05 pm

    …..NOW I understand!

    This was obviously made to compare how the main character's sight is slowly diminishing with each game! As you can see he is obviously on his way to becoming blind and that's why each game is darker and darker. By the fourth game he's all but completely blind but by the fifth he will be.

  20. truegentleman on January 31st, 2011 3:06 pm

    So what happens with doom 5? Does it become pure white? Or will they have to wait until they can ship it with a black hole so that it actually sucks in the light around it?

  21. DM1293 on January 31st, 2011 3:09 pm

    Doom 5 will take place in a black hole.

  22. Luigi676 on January 31st, 2011 3:13 pm

    Crap. Now I need a new graphics card.

  23. RemielChibus on January 31st, 2011 3:51 pm

    Better Doom than bloom…

  24. coolsnape on January 31st, 2011 3:52 pm

    Talk about a shot in the dark

    *watches as Mr.Popo appears from the darkness, Smiles and says "Hiiii" *

  29. Sir_Nox on January 31st, 2011 5:02 pm

    When id said that Doom 4 would have a new blind-firing mode, this is not what I had in mind.

  30. General_Asshat on January 31st, 2011 5:40 pm

    Look at those goddamn graphics. Not even Crysis on the most BEEFED-UP PC could compete with that, and that copy of Doom 4 is on the fucking Wii.

  31. Dr_Pie on January 31st, 2011 6:00 pm

    There was absolutely nothing inside the screenshot. Nothing after nothing came bursting out.

  32. SentryGunner on January 31st, 2011 6:44 pm

    Ha, they'll never know what hit 'em!

  33. VJoe10[8] on January 31st, 2011 7:09 pm

    “No! I must kill the demons” he shouted The radio said “No, John. You are the demons” And then John was a zombie.

    BOOM! ….wait…where's the headshot?

  35. GazzyW007 on January 31st, 2011 8:29 pm

    Grammar was killed that day along with your grandmother after an accident playing DooM 4.

  36. MagmarFire on January 31st, 2011 8:45 pm

    Should I not have done that?

  37. oboewan on January 31st, 2011 10:16 pm

    (Insert Gears of War joke here)

  38. oboewan on January 31st, 2011 10:17 pm

    Also, 3DS port pl0x

  39. oboewan on January 31st, 2011 10:38 pm

    My PC can only run this game at its lowest settings.

    One word: Sedatives. :D

  41. tmotom on February 1st, 2011 4:22 pm

    never gonna get to my level, bro.

  42. mikeorike on February 2nd, 2011 1:00 am

    looks doom 4 is
    doomed to fail

    ok that was bad

  43. whatswiththexenomorphsreally on March 3rd, 2011 2:34 pm

    Doom 13 will make the definition of light erased

  44. saucebody on April 4th, 2012 4:36 pm

    Hilarious thought: The screenshot for "Doom 1" is ALSO from Doom 2. So yeah, huge fail on whoever made it.
