Talking Doom3 is Almost Here!!!

Sorry for the spam topic... I'm just so ****ing excited about this... I have waited 3 years for this game. Glad to see the wait is finally drawing to a close guys. I have halted playing all games for now since I cannot get my mind off of doom3. This is what I first upgraded my computer for. Hehe. A P4 2.4, and a 5800 Ultra. I bought that stuff for this game. Funny how nothing in my system is the same anymore.

I just know doom3 is gonna rock our socks off. Now, I have been waiting impatiently for this game since the day the E3 video leaked on the net. Unbelievable how long ago that was.. now the time is near!

I have had so many great experiences with the shareware of Doom (never had the full version since I was flat broke.) I would play that game for hours upon hours, and seemed to never get bored. I would wake up early so I could play it before school, rush home so I can play some more doom, and stay up late dooming away on the shareware of doom. I swear I must of beat the shareware version at least a few hundred times.

Wow, just wow. Never can I remember being this excited about an upcoming game as now. I am even trying to get that day off from work! Hehe...

Its here guys, 20 more days and we can finally play what we have been drooling over for the last 3 years, and it couldn't look better.

Lets give the original doom shareware a run once again, DL it here:

Great times are ahead of us guys, from August 3rd and on, I'm scared I might lose my job and my GF

Come August 3rd, my PC will be Overclocked, and more than ready for the experience that has seems I have waited a lifetime for. I'm also considering getting this monitor just for this game:

Countdown....

Well I am not going to fall for all of the hype:

1) Single player part will be great fun. MP part? Id's games have always had strong MP parts. Q2 and Q1 were the number one spot as far as on-line players in their time. Most other games are going to larger scale interaction, Joint Ops can handle over 120 players. Yet Doom3 will be limited to 4? Why 4? I think you will see a lot of Doom3 servers pop up. I just don't see it to be the domniating force in the MP department.

2) Lack of co-op. Enuf said.

3) 20 to 24 hrs single player part seems "a bit short". Was hoping to get a longer SP part as that is what this game will carter too. However quality time is much much better than quanity of time so that may not be that big of a deal. But after 3 years of waiting for the game I dont want it to be over in a few days of playing it.

4) No DVD? WTF is up with that? I read their reasons. Why can't they just pay the cost? Epic and other compains did. I have just bought my 3rd DVD Writter for pete sakes. All 5 PCs I have in my house have a DVD or DVD Writer. Why make us play the CD shuffle game? At this rate I am wonder when we finally do move away from CDs (5 more years it seems like). People will have to upgrade their PCs anyways to play this, whats another 40 bucks for a DVD-Rom drive?

5) Unknow mod abilities. Many mod developers got their start on moding for Quake/Q2 games. I have not heard about any SDK or when it might be availible to the mod community. Hopefully we will not have to wait around. With a limited MP part, will this hurt the mod community? Granted for 99.99% of the readers here is not a big deal. But as a modder I am wondering about this. Who knows the next big mod (Counter Strike or Desert Combat) could be a Doom3 one?


Other than that this game will rock And ROCK HARD. I have no doubt it will be worth every penny. But those points above already make my a bit dissapointed in it...

I agree with jbirney, 20-24 hours of gameplay is a bit on the short side. That and crippled multiplayer... 8 for the Xbox, 4 for PC? WTF is this, the twilight zone? From what I understand this limit was put in place by design, rather than tech limitations, although per poly hit detection will require higher pings and more bandwidth. I'm pretty sure there will be mods and hacks that would allow for more than 4 players in mp.

i agree with all this. i have waited since the old days to play this. dom is proabably what got most of us hooked on games. pressing the space bar against a wall to find the secret doors is a classic!
