I hope there is more than 5 weapons. The flare gun (pistol) is rather annoying.

I found the word "sechs" in one of the scans. Dang. Doom 1 and 2 featured monsters fighting each other and now Doom 3 features the ability for them to have zombie and mansechs! No wonder this game got the Mature rating.

Yeah those guns are pretty goofy looking.... why is it a general idea that all guns will be misproportioned, round and extremely bulky in the future? Every REAL concept weapon I have ever seen was square and streamlined....

oh well... I guess id has to keep their ideas original

And I hope there are more guns than that... I want the BFG and the chaingun dammit.... and the rocket launcher... and maybe the double barrel shotgun....

Also, anyone think these newest screens are a lot more impressive than the ones we were getting a few months ago? I remember some pretty blocky\unpolished looking screens showing up for this game, these look extremely nice.

Heres to hoping it runs better than DXIW

Yeah, I'm sure that would be nice and interesting..........

And I hope there are more guns than that... I want the BFG and the chaingun dammit.... and the rocket launcher...

people asking for more weapons look at the last E3 video..
ROcket launcher is there ,and another weird weapon that looks like a super BIg chaingun. read somewhere (maybe quakecon2003) that the BFG was there too
that weapon was pretty cool in quake2 and im not sure ,but also the railgun could be there too. i would like to see a huge inventory of weapons , and some kind of weapons that could be used alone and mixed on the fly and form another bigger one. also the size of all the weapons posted there is not actual scale ,is not similar as the sceenshots above suggest ,the chainsaw is huge and most others weapons too.

i notice that in the multiplayer screenshot of the marine with the flashlight ,they use a helmet but idsoftware already told that the helmet was gone , that explain the last D3 E3video showing the face at all times of the marine.. could that be that they now allow the option to use it or not. or maybe single player helmet is off and multiplayer- on?

btw.. Idsoftware MUST be doing something extra with their Models...


because projected high quality Bumpsmaps alone (even if they are taken from the originals) doesnt do miracles.. jeezz from 250k polys to 1.5k is a huge diference in the detail and in the game the models looks pretty close to the originals.. even quake3 models have more polys than the 1.5kmark ..

railgun is out, apparently, because it's all confined spaces.

last I heard, the list for D3 weapon was thus:

machine gun (may or may not be chaingun)
rocket launcher
plasma rifle
soul cube

I don't know what the soul cube is... wish I did.
