View Full Version : Just Got DOOM3!!

07-31-04, 08:00 PM

I just bought DOOM3 at BestBuy!
I called ahead and asked if they had it and was told
that indeed they did but not on display... "it was in back".
I asked if I could come by and pick up a copy and was told "sure".

Got there and asked the guy by software for DOOM3, he said hold on
while he asked a manager, He was given the ok to sell it to me.

I live in Chicago, Illinois and the BestBuy I bought it from is located at:

Ford City IL (Store 311)
7600 S. Ciceroero
Burbank, IL 60459
Phone: 708-229-0065
Hours: Mon-Sat 10:00am-9:00pm
Sun 11:00am-7:00pm

I have been playing for about an hour & it is amazing! Really well done from
what I've seen so far. I'm playing with High Quality, 1024@768. Looks & runs
very good. I actually jumped a few times like a wuss, and thats only from
the zombies & Imps :)

One thing thats really good (other than the graphics) are the sounds.
The sounds are very sharp and booming. The reload sounds to the blast
from the shotgun really stands out, Very impressive. The atmosphere
is very well done in the begining where you just report for duty and talk
with some of the people on the base. I am really excited and can't wait
to dive in and play tonight.

I'll post some ingame pics later on.

My computer:
Pentium 4 3.0c
1Gig of RAM
ATI 9800pro (3.10 drivers)
SBLive Sound Card
2 Speaker Setup

I just pleaded with my Dad and he said He would reserve me a copy at Gamestop for pickup on Aug 3rd. Just called my BB and Gamestp and they both said the 3rd. Can't believe they sold it to you early.

Just went to 2 Best Buys , 2 Wallmarts , 4 EB's and 1 Circut City and noone has it!!!1 I even went as far as to tell one of the Best Buy chicks that I needed it for my nephew that had cancer. She said that was cute but no matter how hard I tried there was no Doom 3 or hot BestBuy chicks phone # owned: :(

I called my Best Buy and they had it in stock. I drive all the way out there (30 minutes...) and there were none _at all_ except for the stupid presell boxes. Of course, it's no sales tax weekend here, and it's crowded and I had to fight my way to customer service, and they never had any in-stock.

07-31-04, 08:36 PM
I'm really gald you got the game early....but I seriously think some heads are going to roll at that BestBuy you mentioned by name and address :rolleyes:
If ID or Activision get wind D3 was sold out of retail...."the Real Hell" is going to break loose.

I just called best buy and they have them! But only in the back! I offered him $100 and he said no :( gggghhhheeeyy!!!!!!1

JAk...go to BB pull the SW manager over to one of thier display PCs and force them to read this thread....might work :)

They said in the G4TechTV video that retailers can sell it whenever they get it in. It's not the word of the publisher, but I think it's worthy...

to the thread poster, Does Doom 3 look better than FarCry?

And Jakup, I offered the guy at best guy 50 bucks to let me buy a copy...he said no. :( Grr

So, let me get this straight...you guys are willing to pay $50-100 MORE than the $55 it's already gonna cost you to buy the game so you don't have to wait 3 DAYS???? LOL You need help.

I just got back from EB and the guy there said it wasn't going to be released until the 4th. All the boxes said the furth also. He also said they didn't have it in yet. Meh I really don't care at this point.

For the love of god it seems like some of you would be willing to part with a testicle in order to obtain this game 3 days early. Man, and I thought I was obsessed with PCs. You guys need help... :p

08-01-04, 12:19 AM
I donate my left testicle :condom:
