I just got my copy of Doom3 from EB, and am taking a look at it now. Wow, it is incredible so far.

Is anyone else into the Doom series at all?



Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

Who ISN'T into Doom!?

I have all the old favourites, Doom, Doom II, Final Doom. But my system is a very, VERY long way off from being able to run Doom III sadly. I'm dying to play it though. Give us a nice review. How does it run? Sounds/graphics? What about the pant-filling factor?
Is it the same story as the first ones, just major supped up? Are all the old enemies in it?

no it wont be on ps2 or GC. i know for sure PS2 couldnt handle it but maybe GC could, but the id software has never made any games for Sony or nintendo so im pretty sure it wont be appearing on any other systems

All the original DOOM games and Quake II appeared on PS1 and PS2. So they have ported before. The graphics for Quake 2 were hideous compared to the PC version though, i'd prefer it if they didn't port to be honest.
Gamecube can handle the graphics, it's graphics system is actually better than the XBOX, but the playbility and some other features on gamecube are lacking, so you're probably right, most likely only xbox.

That sucks.

The game is absolutely amazing. I am still in the very first part of the game but I am still impressed with the visual effects so far. Very creepy visually as well as sound effects.

Here is a screen capture. Not exactly the best quality as I had to make the file small enough to fit here, but you get the idea.

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression.

1987 i believe was when wolfenstien first hit the shelves, which is a year before you were born. tongue.gif
doom was concieved off about that time. i didn't say when doom came out, i said when it was concieved off.
