    Coverscans, original adverts...

    Sorry for the necropost. I've been looking for another really old advertisement for DooM lately (does it say something about our generation when we wax nostalgic for commercials and printed ads?). The ad said this: "Want to be a hero? Go to hell!" Anyone know if it exists anywhere out there digitally? Or even remember it? =]

    the doom movie

    I have been a fan of DooM since 1993. I was one of the original guys who had downloaded a copy of original shareware version (from a BBS, something many of you probably have never heard of) shortly after it's release to the world. I remember when version 1.2 was the "latest" revision. I remember distinctly a nazi swastika being in E1M4, and thought it was an awesome nod to Wolfenstein 3D. Hell, DooM and I share the same birthday (December 10th). Suffice it to say, I'm a very long-time fan and my connection to the game runs deep. Now, with that said, I liked the movie. Yes, I was disappointed when I learned the monsters were not literal hellspawn. But you know what? The spirit of DooM is there. It really is. I can easily tell the difference between this and a resident evil movie. If someone were to show me this movie and not tell me the title of it (and even if I had never played Doom 3) my brain would immediately say, "This is a lot like Doom. A LOT like it." Anyone notice that one of the doors had the yellow lights around it, like a yellow key-card door from the original game? And that such a card was used to open it? Nods like that made me smile. Even Karl Urban's face reminded me a ton of Doomguy's. I enjoyed the movie. I even and especially enjoyed the first person mode. The movie, like the game, did not take itself seriously. It was exactly the right tone of DooM. This very long-time DooM fan was not disappointed at all. And had the biggest grin on his face after the movie ended.

    Udderdude's ROE Review

    Dunno about extra firepower to guns or not. I assumed "berzerk" was just like getting the berzerk power from before, and now your fists are superweapons. And it's true. If you use the artifact, you can kill a hellknight with just one punch. Yeah, the artifact is a bit too overpowered.

    Doom 3. scary?

    Unless of course, HL3 does the same thing that HL2 did: Not answering a single question already posed in the previous games, and then pose even MORE questions without answering them one bit.
  5. I loved the "hazard suit." It's a great nod to the original DooM, even though the suit is just a helmet. I wish you put on this thing when you had to go on the surface of Mars! The muffled sounds, the built-in light, the distortion of the mask, I love it. I was disappointed when I had to take it off. And I was disappointed when I had to run on the surface of Mars shortly after and not don the helmet again. :( -Jomero

    Doom 3. scary?

    It's scary if you want it to be scary. If your mindset is "Bah. I'm not gonna be scared. You can't make me scared! Go ahead and try!" then yeah, it's not going to be scary. You have to psych yourself up for it, and LIKE feeling that uncomfortableness that comes with being offput by the unknown and supernatural.

    Need help in Hell

    The monster only charges you when a seeker has located you. So if you need a breather, kill all the seekers except one and then stay out of the last seeker's spotlight. Then you can regroup, reload, find some health kits, or whatever you need and then go back to business.

    "...and I built his cage"

    It's "built." Why is it built? Other than the fact that is what he said? Well, other than the reasons already stated, "built" emphasizes that he and his fellow scientists were quite arrogant in believing that they could actually CONTAIN and CONTROL the devil. That their "built" cage is flawless and would get the job done without a problem at all. It was that same arrogance that resulted in the entire catastrophe.

    Doom 3 mission pack announced

    Well, just make the SSG able to kill things more than 2 inches away from you and it will be far better than the regular shotgun and still not be overpowered.

    Doom 3 mission pack announced

    "Through the discovery of a timeless evil artifact, you hold the powers of Hell in your hands, and the demons have come to take it back." I hope they're not talking about the Soul Cube because 1. It's buried under several tons of rock or it's found it's way back to hell. 2. It was not an evil artifact, but a very good and righteous one.

    Half-Life 2/Doom 3 Tech Comparison

    That's a weak excuse and you know it. Fans would not complain one bit if they got an actor that sounded slightly similar but could actually deliver believable lines. Maybe one or two would complain, but they'd get over it in 1 day. The millions of other fans wouldn't care that the crappy actor wasn't back.

    Half-Life 2/Doom 3 Tech Comparison

    Good face animations won't do much if the voice coming from them is crap. And the voice actor of the G-Man sucks so hard that he makes Monica Lewinsky blush. Good voice acting can make a good game even greater. Think: Deckard Cain from Diablo. The thing that impressed me the most, and also surprised me the most, was how awesome the voice actors were. Even in the voicemails in the PDA, all of them were top notch. Swann: "Yes, Dr. Bettruger. I think I do understand." All those lines were delivered great. G-man? He speaks with pauses....not unlike.... William.... Shatner. And tries to use catch phrases..... like Agent Smith... from the.... Matrix. Extreme suckitude. Hopefully the rest of the game can make up for that.

    He's right, Quake 2 weapons are essentially DooM 2 weapons. I don't really feel a railgun fits in the doom universe though.
