I really must get DOOM (2016) for Switch soon, shame it isn't on offer this week. 

 

It was £25 not that long ago

Stop spreading bullshit.

 

Well he’s right that it is cheaper elsewhere (although not quite that cheap), it’s still irrelevant if you only want to play the Switch version.

Probably for the best if he’s spouting bullshit :)

Nope. It's vanished from people's Ready To Install lists. 

 

Ive had my 360 Dooms installed since forever, and didnt know about this part. Thats awful. So if my HDD craps up or whatever theyre gone? Great.

I'm pretty sure that's already been a thing.

Memo to self: set up the script thing you mentioned. What's the point of ignoring someone if you can see their bullshit in quotes?

If I don’t want to get both Doom and Doom II, which one should I go for?

 

Both of them

A bit of an over reaction for a wrong tweet, don't you think?

 

Have you considered that it might have something to do with everything else you've posted in the last decade?

Honestly? No. I didn't know people keep their grudges forever. Kind of sad.

Inaccessibility of online features is one thing, that's expected. But all my digital downloads will carry on working in the future as they don't require some website existing or not.

So that's it ? No way to redownload? If so, that's worrying.

A con to convenience and saving some plastic. A good reminder though, I didn't realize they could halt new downloads. Should have been obvious, given the Microsoft ebooks fiasco. 

 

We pretty much long term lease anything with DRM.

Looks like they finally updated Doom on iOS as well, although it looks like it is no longer based on the port that John Cormack worked on which was pretty much perfect. Of course there's the stupid login requirement. Hope they remove it here as well.

Deleting games from backwards compatibility to resell them kind of undermines the ostensible reasoning for all these re-releases, to make games available on the latest platforms.

When the 360 versions were switched over from Activision to Bethesda, were they new versions? I'm wondering if Bethesda did a deal with Activision to avoid having to develop new ports, and it's expired in the intervening time.
