Drawing Closer

Recommended Posts

I've been notified that Doom3.com has been updated with screenshots, desktop images, and a video trailer for the next upcoming installment in the Doom series. It seems that there is at least one new screenshot, and the trailer is merely the previously released E3 video, except with a male narrator. You can even pre-order the game, if you feel so inclined. And remember folks, this game is not yet rated.

I can tell you have a hard time seeming enthusiastic.

But since someone can't take a joke, I'll comment further. I liked the screenshots, but what about hell screenshots? I know I'm not the only one who'd like to see at least one.

But won't Hell be that much more exciting to see since all you have to go on are your own thoughts?

My god, I might be on to something...

I agree. This is what the whole game will be building up to, like first encountering the alien world Xen in Half-Life. It should be up to the imagination before actually getting there for a better experience.

Okay, maybe this has been brought up before, but what's with that weird baby/insect thing a little over 3/4s of the way through the e3 video? It's right before he starts shooting at the jumping spiders. I've never seen this thing before, looks creepy as hell.

The game certianly isnt coming out on doom's 10th, but maybe they will release something else on the day, like a new video or something, or maybe even a demo (which could be the same as the leaked alpha, so for the people that have played the alpha theres nothing new in it, except a message at the start that says "ID ownz teh haxors")

Oh hey, yeah, that trailer does kick ass. I'm still curious, though, WTF is throwing that one guy around? I'm sure this has already been discussed, but there's a guy halfway through the video who is pulled up by his leg and slammed into a door by apparently nothing. Really weird and creepy... This is what I get for not paying more attention to the Doom 3 forums. Oh, and if they did release the demo and if it were the same as the alpha, I would hope they would have cleaned it up. I honestly wouldn't be too upset if it were a nicely done version of the alpha - at least it'd be something to play (the alpha is too crap to play on a regular basis).

Also notice when he shoots the zombie something translucent moves past the corpse

Unlike the blair witch project, Doom3 has some meat on it's bones!

I actually saw empty Doom3 boxes at EB games yesterday when I went to the mall with Annie. The boxes are actually pretty cool, and resemble the site. They have two styles: a smaller one that's rather common today, and a larger one that comes with a figurine.

I'm glad I upgraded my computer, now.

A demo would be a very sweet X-Mas gift, but I highly doubt it. It would be too good to be true.
The alpha is just a techdemo, though. I want a fully working, playable level.

I think its about time. The textures look alot better now than they do in the alpha. And the video seems smoother and final game concpet basically done. IF they are finished with all this video cgi crap the game is in the debugging stage and ready to ship. Thats my opinion. Im just tired of all the guys gettin poed cause they wanna play the frickin thing already

Heh, such things are not allowed, now that everyone (except for those that dont, like most people) has broadband and so they can download it every time they want to watch it, and websites never ever go down anymore...
