    Has anybody else watched Fatal1ty playing on NBC Giga tonight?

    Didn't see it, unfortunately, I like watching progamers progress and especially fat's. Unfortunately, from what I HAVE seen of him (qcon 04), he really sucked. I'm sitting here in irc, watching the gamecast, cursing at myself over and over and over that I didn't go to the event as he takes a cool $25,000 that, even in the few virgin weeks the game had been out, didn't even deserve. I couldn't believe his dm2 game, I would've had him in the negative frags (although I'm sure he knows of the strategy I would've used by now, the map is already getting played less and less due to the unbelievably lame weapon-deny strategy I came up with). Now I'm sitting here pissed off at exploits/map issues in doom3 multiplayer, and pondering if I should cancel going to winter CPL (which I am signed up for). bah. competitive gaming sucks.

    Play Doom 3, Win Money

    More impressive I think is that doom3 is most likely going to be the game that's used for the $1,000,000 world tour next year. In any case, I'll be there this winter, unless some emergency comes up of course.

    "For those who have, uh, somehow played Doom 3 already?"

    "For those who have a badass retailer or don't know how to spell the word 'super'..."

    Random not-so-spoiling question

    Yes, the suit you get ingame has an air supply for just that reason, and of course to make things interesting it runs out of air as you go around and you have to find convienently placed air canisters to restock it. edit: oh, and I hear the dust/atmosphere of it is amazing.

    The Prima strategy guide...

    ...more or less sucks. I don't recommend buying it unless you're a collector, or, like me, are just trying to pass the time in any way possible. As usual it's information is shakey and poorly laid out, and focuses on entirely the wrong things.
  6. TwiNCannoN

    Well atleast it comes in a cd case

    No friggin kidding... I'm gonna murder that thing so hard when I see it ingame.

    The Prima strategy guide...

    Yeah, I know 99% of today's guides are worthless, but I just wanted to let you guys know that unless you just want the pretty book with doom3 logo then don't even bother. edit: doesn't even come with a poster :\

    My first impressions

    I need MP info!

    Doom 3 Out There

    Oh, I know, but that's not the fault of the customer. Wallmart's always in trouble for doing it. I hope they do it again for me :) I am hearing probably the most MIXED replies of all time about doom3 for stores around me though. Gonna keep calling until I get a yes basically, since no one seems to have a clue :P

    Doom 3 Out There

    Hey, completely offtopic, but I notice you have a "microsoft frontpage" folder also... do you have any idea what the deal with that is? (if you haven't checked it out, look in it, it's empty and from the capitalization looks legit, and if it's like mine you can't delete it). I've had this on 3 installations of windows and can't figure out what is up... and obviously you can't google about it.

    Doom 3 Out There

    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

    3 days 6 hours MY ASS!

    hm, well, my questions are all multiplayer really. I know SP will be badass, and I'm just not the kind of guy to get hyped up for something I will only play for X amount of minutes. However, for MP, which is something that could grasp me for the next X YEARS, I am literally on the edge of my seat. I'd give you some questions but honestly I'm a detail fiend when it comes to anticipating new games, so I'd probably ask way too much lol... SUCH AS: how long does it take for items to spawn? ammo? health? powerups? what's the weapon spawn system like? pickup/stay toggleable, or pickup only (and if so what's the timer, and is it variable in tdm vs tourney)? is there a megahealth or megasphere? does the berserker fill you up to 100 health ala classic doom? what kind of flavors does armor and health come in? does health and/or armor tick down like quake or stay at 100+ like classic doom? any extra bindings like crouch, jump, sprint/walk, use, etc? heh, and that was all just one run-on thought 0_o Of course, my biggest question that I still haven't gotten an answer on, but is a hard one to ask if you don't know how to do it or what it is, is the movement tricks in MP. Strafejumping, double jumping... have heard so many rumors about both, and they're important to me, so I want the truth asap :) if you have no idea what they are don't bother. But if you do, that's the one and only question that I'm DYING to know. also, curious if it still uses a console system, and what the commands are like. Also if it uses a bind system ala the quake series (and doom user-created engines). heh I'll stop here :P thanks if you do answer anything ;) edit: oh, and of course I forget the most important thing, but I bet you couldn't answer anyway being that there's no servers... how's the netcode? (if you just make your own server, it's no estimation of the netcode, since your ping will be 0)

    OMG ITS SO FAKE I CAN TELL THE PHOTOSHOP A MILE AWAY just kidding. But seriously, that best buy price tag makes me EXTREMELY jealous :P

    Doom 3 Out There

    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 :)

    Things to consider when mapping for Doom3

    Something for people planning to do MP maps for doom3 and actually want them to get playtime: http://www.promode.org/maps/guide/ decent gameplay theory/design guide from the quake3 CPMA community.

    Will Doom 3 work on Win ME?

    I installed XP on my father's machine that used to have ME a couple months ago. He still thanks me every day.

    800x600/AA or 1600x1200?

    Uh, stop playing video games. Anyway. The only time I'll ever... EVER... EVER use AA (which is basically, until they code it so it's not as fps harming, useless), is if there's a game that has bad HUD coding and if you play in 1600x1200 or something you can't see text or such. And even then I probably will just put it at 1024 and not care, because FSAA is stupid, if you're playing in 640x480-800x600 it's obvious you're in it for the frames anyway, which FSAA kills the point of. If you're in 1024 or above it's fine.
  18. Page 8 of the PC Games german article, whoever has it; there's a cell in there that I'm pretty much sure confirms the inclusion of left-handed weapon option, I know some people were interested in this. here, clipped it out

    Gamepads as an option.....Yes or no in Doom 3

    heh neat, trackballing. My friend used to trackball. OLD video of him playing (he mouses now): http://www.own-age.com/vids/video.aspx?id=52

    "bathroom scene" still in?

    I wouldn't be surprised if that scene got canned. It didn't really intrigue me.

    PC Gamer Swedish review out

    I love how all these moron magazine writers are like "omg nothing could be better/has been better" and give it a bad review (and if you're wondering why I say "bad review" of 90-96%, consider this: shitty games like final fantasy 10 and MGS 2 have gotten higher...).

    Win98 Users SOL

    Yeah, and pretty easy to get too heh. Every single ram issue known to man? I'm sure if you pumped win98 with enough ram it'd run doom3 no problems... windows is windows. However, you're in for rebooting like every couple of levels I bet due to win98's terrible ram bs.

    Creative tries to stop id Software with patent

    So wtf, are they going to do this to EVERY new game coming out? Because this is the next step in graphics... wtf. I just sent them a nasty email, feel free to do the same.

    Doom 3 Hit By Software Patents

    So, can anyone put this in english? The only thing I get from this is that creative labs are assholes.

    No Doom Experience without Win XP/2000

    maybe in the past when win98 had a dos shell, but these days the ram problems are too big to make it any worthwhile.
