I dont' get it. Why is everyone so upset over the game possibly having a Railgun? (note I said *possibly*; the game isnt' done yet, so it may or may not be in there). *shrug* I thought Railguns were kinda cool in Quake2.
4-person Multiplayer. I'm *glad* to see this. DOOM isn't about a hoard of PLAYERS wandering around armed to the tits, laying waste to the piddly opposition. DOOM is about *atmos-FEAR*. DOOM is "Ohmygod!!!!...ohmygod!!!...omygod!!!...AAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!"...not about "Heh, a pair of Cyberdemons...you 4 take the left, you 4 take the right, and the rest of us will hit them up the middle".
I am, however, disappointed at the lack of Sound 'focus'. Even though I run an old sound card (AWE64 Gold), my new DOOM III system will most definitly have a kick-ass sound card. Ah well, if it plays and sounds awesome, I guess that's the main thing, huh?
Take a weekend to finish? *shrug* I'd like to see that doubled, but as long as creating levels for it isn't as nigh-impossible as it is for Dungeonsiege (I know, different genre, but still...), I'm sure we'll see a LOT of levels come out for it. I can see a bunch of current DOOM/DOOM2 mega-wads being redone (Memento Mori, Plutonia, Hellstorm [ ;) ], etc.). :)
I STILL think D3 is going to kick some serious ass!
