Recommended Posts

According to their advertisement Saturn is going to sell it on August 12th. So I'll grab a copy there when I return from work, since I have to go by there anyway.


Much free time....
Was a pupil a month ago and now waiting for the "heros" at university of applied science dortmund to tell me weither ill study computer science (Informatik) or not ;)
The only thing that stinks is that most proffesors there use java to teach.
Java *shivers*
Why not C++?!?
Why that slow and complicated thing called Java?!?
Should put a nuke on sun.

Just called BestBuy - they said August 4th.

I personally think you guys are full of bs.

The guy that I contacted there said "the only way that would be possible is if someone accidentally put the game on store shelves before August 4th, but even if that does happen, we have been told to take the games back up until that date"

So there ya have it.

Unless you guys got lucky and found a BestBuy full of idiots that accidentally put it on store shelves - this is nothing but another scam.

...and what about people who work in (or know people who work in) games retail outlets? think that none of them anywhere in the world is interested in doom3?

Yes, we conjured the screenshots of the full version, and the warez groups conjured the full version itself, out of thin fucking air.

^^^^
What kind of protection does it have?

That's retarded. I've got a preorder in, and I won't buy it until it's street date. Why? Because I'm not a street date breaking smacktard.

It can't bother me that it might be possible to get it early, because I've already payed for the motel that I'm going to play it in for the 4th and 5th.

Heh, that screenshot is very reminiscent of System Shock 2.

Dude, I was thinking the same thing. That panel on the right wall there looks just like the ones I had so much fun smashing in SS2 :)

I stopped at a Gamestop and Best Buy near my house on the way home from a friends today. Gamestop told me August 4th, and Best Buy tricked me. I thought I saw it on the shelf, my stomach sank, and that's when I noticed it was a pre-order box.

I might just wait to get mine shipped to me.

Yeah, I'll be attending university this fall as a freshman, majoring in computer science. Were using Ada 95, instead of C++ (but that's ok, I know C++ alright). I wish they would still use C++, but the reason why they are using Java (or Ada 95 at my school) is that the proffs. want students to concentrate on Design and theory rather than the complexities of the language, and yes trying to learn C++ in a quarter can be frustrating if your starting out the first time. I've slowly learned C++ over a period of time and have had time to study it, making it easier to remember the syntax I learn.

My local Best Buy put up the copies on the shelves an hour before close. I got there just in time to nab one. Here's a shot of me being sad that there is no Muliplayer servers up yet:

You lucky bastard. Where do you live? (To wonder what state your bestbuy is in, not to come and kill you)

Hmm, Design and Theory...
And why do i understand NULL of java and dont have any big problems with c++? ;)
Ok, i have a big helper wo makes things easier called SDL but thats all.
I have learned it the rather hard way by looking at other people code, reading some tutorials, experimenting and a very helpfull IDE (Dev-Cpp).
Tryed other IDEs (and their compilers), even the high praised Visual Studio, but i always come back to Dev-Cpp.
It makes smaller binarys, it better explains errors to me and its even free for profesional use.
(No, the gcc does not want you to put your code on GPL!!!)

BTW: I started programming with qb45

And now my code for java:

int done=0;
while(!done){
printf("Java sucks!\n");
if(javasucks==yes)done=1;
}
SCNR ;)

And now, back to topic!

Sorry for the long delay, I've been bombarded with questions from various areas lately.

I'm in Minnesota, picked it up at the Minnetonka Best Buy. They put it on the shelves an hour or so before close, and I picked it up last night.

I've played one Multiplayer game finally. Here's a few more shots:

And what about us mac users, we get screwed twice, first on the system requirements then by the delayed mac release. I'm tempted to unload the $350 on an E machine for a chance at this game with the rest of the herd.

Probably someone extremely lucky.

Im talking about an actual release on store shelves.

I dont think it will be until the weekend is over.

IMO Monday at the EARLIEST.


Before i even read the rest of this thread, I laugh at you, LAUGH. I purchased a copy at the best buy in merillville, IN. I was just playing some dm, fabulous stuff, very heartpounding!

I'm playing it on a work laptop I took for this weekend, and I'll be returning to chicago on sunday afternoon. Even so, with this 32MB mobile radeon 9000, 512MB of system ram, and a pentium m 1.4ghz, it can still look awesometastic.

And as I said earlier I just got back from some dm, and it rllz for sure. The doomguy still runs pretty fast imo, and the lights, with the textures, and the general ambience created was spectacular.

Oh please. This is the same kind of "I know about an exploit in an MMORPG but I'm a little angel and won't use it to gain an advantage because I'm better than that", except worse. Life is short, people have lusts, GET THE FUCKING GAME IF YOU CAN. :P
