Right now is the twenty sixth Anniversary of the launch of Doom 2, so John Romero was performing some trivia on Twitter and answered a burning query that a number of individuals needed to know the reply to. I wasn’t one in every of them and really I can not assure that a number of individuals needed to know the reply however I suppose at the least one particular person did. They noticed their shot they usually took it.
Now we all know: “Doom Guy’s name is Doom Guy.” That is canon now as a result of John Romero made Doom, so except the opposite John desires to weigh in he is proper.
Doom Man’s identify is Doom Man. https://t.co/jy9vBVKzPROctober 9, 2020
Lastly, we all know that his identify shouldn’t be Doomguy, however fairly Doom Man. Truly now that I give it some thought that is nonetheless extra sophisticated. Man is a surname of germanic origin widespread in France and England after the Norman conquests. So possibly Doom is a primary identify? Perhaps it is brief for one thing, like Adoom or Doominick? Does that imply we will not definitively use male pronouns for Doom Man as a result of Doom Man may not be a Man however would possibly as a substitute have the final identify Man? The plot thickens.
Doom Man has had a variety of secondary names. There have been Doom novels within the 90s, and Doom Man had the identify Flynn Taggart, however there have been additionally Doom 3 novels and Doom Man was named John Kane. The Doom 2016 and Doom Everlasting video games simply name Doom Man “The Doom Slayer,” which is extra of a title than a reputation and is subsequently tremendous to name Doom Man.
Anyhow, the primary DLC for Doom Everlasting is known as The Historic Gods, Half One and is a standalone growth out October twentieth.
