Gamespy's Doom 3 First Look

Damn those guys at Gamespy, I haven't even left for E3 yet and they've already seen the Doom 3 presentation multiple times and have posted a three-page first look about it. As you might imagine it's chock full of goodness regarding the game that everyone is going to be clamoring to see at E3, not least of all me:

While id isn't planning on giving away the entire plot of the game anytime soon, here's what we know so far: DOOM III is basically a "retelling" of the original DOOM, with many of the same characters and themes, and even some returning weapons. Most of the game is set on Mars, where you're a marine recently stationed at the Union Aerospace Corporation, a company with strong military ties doing experimentation with teleportation technology. It seems a few people at the UAC don't exactly have everyone's best interests at heart, and after a betrayal, things quickly descend into chaos, with members of the facility being possessed and turned into zombies. This is where you come in - as one quote from the demonstration put it, "only one man stands between hell and earth... you."

I'll have my own pics and writeup tonight or tomorrow, but until then, see you at E3! Or not.

Wtf?
Doom 3 a retelling of Doom1???
Why the fuck is it called Doom III then?
Not that I mind that the new game's a remake, but it seems really lame that they numbered it as if it was an actual sequel.

I'll need to swallow those news before I can really enjoy it.

I think that they're going back to the original storyline and expanding on it is quite cool. I'm getting even more excited by the day =)

The video on Fileplanet is the intro BEFORE you go into the booth that has interviews, history of Doom and a small amount of Doom III footage... not the actual 11 minute video that fully shows the game.

Is the 7 minutes movie just a small version of the 11 minutes ? I don't want to wait 2 hours for nothing.

Yeah agreed, but why call it "Doom 3"?
That title is so damn ridiculous for a "retelling" no matter HOW I look at it.

Here is an 8 meg video of Doom 3 stuff.

My sig contains a lot of DooM III stuff. The D and the first o contain screenies, the second o, the M and the first I contain downloads and the last two IIs are the Doom 3 logo and Gamespy's Doom 3 stuff...
