Default Semi-newish doom3 shot..

Apparently this has been in magazines, but some site has just got a decent copy of it.. not amazing picture, but nice anyway..



From the apparently very poor and inacurate report here;

the problem with great shots like that is that if when I start to shoot it I don't see bullet holes, flesh tearing, blood pouring out, and it reacting in pain and anger, then I'm going to think "this physics/AI engine is absolute ****" instead of "these graphics are amazingly good".

that's the problem with making one part of your game realistic and good - all the other parts must live up to the same standard or it'll ruin everything.

why would there be bullet holes in this picture? I see no gun anywhere and only a dead marine.

OMG ! There's also gonna be a CyberDemon !?
Er... sounds rather logical, in fact . Do you know which of the original monsters will be back ? Cacodemons obviously won't (wouldn't fit in), but what about the Arch-Vile, Mancubus, etc...

Arch-vile is definitly in. The mancubus, is actually a female apparently.. at least in doom3..

Dunno about Cocademons tho.. hopefully spider mastermind will be.. imps are in. Revenant is in. Loads of new ones like the babies with wings, and trites (The Thing, upside down head on spider legs things) too..

A 3D, bump-mapped Romero's-head-on-a-pike would be cool too .

Half life 2 still looks better.

If you look closely you can see that it's slimy skin is not actually reflecting the envoroment whereas HL2s beasties do

are you stupid or just not familiar with the English language?

I said "if when I start to shoot it..."

my point was that fantastic graphics make the game much more realistic, but if the other aspects of the game aren't equally realistic then it can seem unbalanced and the realism is runined.

in CS you can jump off the top of a building and survive if there's a few millimetres of water. they get away with it because the rest of the game is nonsense BS too.
