Smile oh this thread...

the nvidiot Archmage's (i think that was him and what his username was) comments in the version 1.0 of this thread is what i thought was the most interesting and caused quite a commotion.

he said something like (and dont quote on this):

he wont be impressed with doom3 because even tho its visual quality will be a bit impressive its gameplay and game genre is nothing new and innovative and because of games and hype over doom3 many people will be "brainwashed" into thinking that these r the type games to play and not the entirely new and innovative games that r not fps, rts, rpg etc etc (he never gave an example of a new, innovative game genre or gameplay because he might be an aspiring game developer and dont wanna give away secrets of gaming innovations he has on his mind)

so he says (dont quote me hehe) to give new innovations in gameplay and game genre a chance and not only innovations in game graphics which is what doom3 may be mainly about



what i say:

i agree
but i still do care much for doom3

i need to try it out for myself before i say its not impressive or innovative

What I would really like to see is Thief 3 based on the Doom 3 engine. Imagine what you could do with Thief and an engine that is all about shadows.

That's actually a GREAT idea Cereal, but from what I hear, they are doing something VERY similar with the Unreal engine on that one...

Yeah that's what I heard too. Well maybe someone will sit down and do a total conversion of Doom 3, but I guess it's a little early to get excited about that possibility, hehe.

I'm not very excited at all about DoomIII itself. What does excite me, however, is the engine. Look at what awesome things have been done with the QuakeIII engine. Imagine Jedi Knight based on the Doom III Engine

This thread just grows everytime I look at it. Anyway, when JC says the G3 will render D3 in realtime all maxxed settings. Does he mean the Ti200 or vanilla G3? How about clock speeds. I don't run mine at defualt speeds.

And you also automatically infer the gameplay sucks based on 1 minute jarring clips they showed? I agree that the gameplay didn't look spectacular, but to immediately infer that it SUCKS is pretty hasty, considering the source of information.
It was a 10 minute vidcam capture of the E3 presentation running on the r300

He meant a Standard GF3

The ti200 is overclockable to standard GF3 speeds and BEYOND... so no problems there

GF3 will be able to handle doom3 with everything turned on at 30fps.

I dont remember there being a resolution mentionned, but i assume it is 1024x768x32
