Doom 3 Done?

Recommended Posts

Some loyal readers have sent word of a scan that's been circulating the 'net that seems to indicate that Doom 3 is done, what with it saying "it's done" on it and all. The new pose for the Doomguy and the wonderfully 1996-era Exocet font seem to suggest that this is the Real Deal, and not just some lame rumor. So... when can I play it?

Here's a mirror of the scan on Gamespot. - Cyb

Oh, and here's an interesting shot of what looks like a Doom 3 box and 6 CDS FOR CHRISTS SAKE, DIDN'T DOOM 1 COME ON LIKE 4 FLOPPIES?! never mind, apparently it's a fake pic, blah - Ling

I recall those fonts being used on a series of AD&D add-ons.

And this 'scan' is from where exactly? There's no page number or publication name. I'm thinking photoshopping or something.

- What's with the fourth period?
- Exclamation marks are seperated from words in French, not English.
- TV is lowercase.
- What the fuck is 'viral media'?
- Missing / extra hyphens.
- Vague and dated quote from single source.

Nah, it looks to me like just the sort of stuff someone in a marketing department would produce (especially with the use of the term "POS" - "point of sale", not "piece of shit"). And it could well be something prepared a long time in advance, ready to be tweaked and updated before actual use.

So if it's done, way isn't it on my PC? Apparantly it ain't done yet.


Its done being made, they still have to print thousands of CD's, Manuals, Boxes, Cardboard shop displays, Posters, and send them across the world..that doesnt happen overnight!

Yeah, not to mention the imminent point release updates to be unleashed after the packages are gleaming in every gaming shop in the world, to iron out the bugs. Give another three months for that :P

*faints to the floor but gets back up 30 min. later just to remember that this is probably another non-official-piece-of-crap like everything else has been*

One of the brightest rays of hope that I can remember. That really makes my day - and I just woke up.

Some possibilities:

  • this is a fake. a real "scan" would have borders from the scanner, oblique angle, or whatever.
  • this is real. doom 3 will be on shelves within a week, or a month, or whatever.
  • this is real. activision produced this promo sheet and it's intended for distribution to retailers or purchasing departments or whatever, but it's been prepared way in advance and they haven't officially mailed it out to anyone, because the game isn't really done.
Something to mull over.

How about

  • this is fake but by some really wacky coincidence Doom 3 is done.

The marine in that picture looks incredibly life-like. It's almost scary to think that soon we'll be battling with guys like that in DM-mode. Incredible.
