    Doom 3 Article


    Linguica

    Webvoid has scooped everyone and has posted an exclusive look at Doom 3! No, I'm not kidding! They have screenshots and everything! They even interview id Software employees about it! I swear, it's legit! No wait, it's a joke. Sorry, I forgot for a minute.

    Actually had me excited there for a brief moment there, Linguica. Damn I'm gullible.

    id Software no longer has The Jomero on his side, so there is no way Doom3 will be good!

    Bah, not funny at all... made me giggle at the beginning, but then it just became pathetic.. especially the "Employee X" thing - WE GOT THE IDEA ITS CARMACK, no need to repeat it 10,000 times..

    Why cant they make another Keen game? Just think.. it could be sorta like Mario 64. One of these "next generation" platformers. Commander Keen Arena=good idea.

    I read all five pages! It was five pages, right? Yeah, well, it was good for quite a few chuckles, and nothing to complain about. How can you go thinking this guy has something against DOOM? I found it quite amusing. This was just a comical article, okay? Just for fun! It's just like the kinds of things we used to see on Doom, Darnit! :-b

    John carmack says in doom3, they are going back to sprites (yes, thats right, no more models and polygons (like quake1,2,3) SPRITES!). Doom3 is going to be a lot like doom and doom2, including: players move at the same speed as doom, the ability to look up and down has been eliminated, forget about all the unique player models to choose from like in quake3, because in DOOM 3 there's only one model: the DOOM guy (he's being pulled straight out of doom (the sprite form) to save on modeling costs). Falling from high places wont hurt you any more (like doom), the BFG will definitely be making a comeback, all orignial mosters and sprites from doom1,2 will be making a come back in doom3 along with a ton more new sprites. Level design will be very similar to doom1 and 2.

    I knew it was totally fake, going in, but when I saw the courtyard full of demons, cacos, and PEs...<P> I actually wanted to play that game. I may need to seek professional help.<P> But not until Godless 4 is done. :)

    Strangely, some of the screenshots did look very interesting, and made the "game" very appealing.

    I thought the article was pretty funny, especially the second page where he was watching the maze screensaver and he thought it was a Doom 3 demo.

    I'm surprised nobody mentioned this. I thought it was hilarious. <P>“The BFG was originally conceived to allow small children and people with mental disabilities to score a few frags. We added it to conform to an non-discrimination law. I’d say its been fairly effective, because the players with no real skills can just pick up the BFG and fool themselves into thinking they’re good at the game. Obviously we want to keep these mentally-challenged players happy, so the BFG will definitely be making a comeback… although in DOOM 3 it’ll be a lot more powerful. We’re equipping it with auto-homing, rapid-fire, instant-hit, devastatingly powerful blasts of fusing plasma that can incinerate an entire map with just one shot. Oh yeah, and some people have complained that the BFG is too hard to get on some maps, so we’re currently planning on just having the player spawn with it already equipped.”
