    I'm fine with the mod/port/whatever honestly, but if they make a decent version without bullshit Bethesda account requirements then I'll throw 'em a few bucks. Great game.

    Wonder if the port was made by the same guy who did Powerslave EX, which got C&D letter...
    They do love borrow some work from others, first System Shock Portable.

    It's going to be a unity port, with bethesda.net account requirements.

    I wonder what they will add to this version, as Doom64 EX has been out for years and worked pretty well.

    Wishful thinking on my part, but it'd be nice if they added all the missing Doom 2 monsters and the spider mastermind.

    Were they cut from N64 (all art assets produced, but removed from the ROM for whatever reason) or nothing related to them has been produced at all?

    Played the Doom 64 Retribution a few weeks ago and IMHO it's better despite minor inconsistencies.

    Likely the later, otherwise they would have surfaced by now.

    Only thing I know is that the sound assets for those critters is available, since all the enemy sounds are the same as the PSX Doom (the same bloke also did the music for both games).

    Sounds are one thing. If they had the graphics in place, it could be doable.

    Otherwise, I don't think it's going to happen -- redoing these monster sprites using the same style and techniques but with a different artist sounds like too much work for a quick commercial release of Doom64 EX.

    I played both Doom 1 and 2 a couple years back and had a blast. Doom 64 is the one I have the most nostalgia for since it was the first Doom game I every played. Also scared the shit out of me as a kid due to the music and general dark horror atmosphere.

    Like i said, wishful thinking on my part. I'm content with an official release of Doom 3 on the PC finally.

    I never played Doom 64 in my life. I always assumed it would have sucked. Then I decided to watch gameplay of it one night a few years back and saw it was actually pretty good.

    But not good enough to buy. I'll just pirate the fuckin' thing and do Our Lord fantadomat proud.

    I played the EX port of it not long ago, very fun and suprisingly atmospheric, though the final boss was insane (apparently because I didn't do the Unmaker weapon thingy). Also the sprites are amazing in it, the Imps actually look like demons in it (as opposed to Wookies like in original Doom).

    I've never managed to beat the Mother Demon without the upgraded unmaker.

    I'm not gonna lie, never played Doom 64

    Makes sense to re-release it.

    How good it is?

    It's very good. Has slightly more of a horror theme like Doom 3, but plays more like Doom 1 and 2. It definitely deserves to be in the same lineup as 1-2-3-2016. Only thing I'd really bitch about that isn't just an artistic/stylistic choice is I wish the weapons had more "Doom-like" animation, but they're closer to Quake in that regard. The shotgun just sorta jiggling, for example.
