Since Pal's thread FUCKING SUCKS, I've decided to start a new one, mainly because of lol official Doom 3 [H] benchmarks, that show that the game looks fucking awesome at low specs.

I want this game right now, I really do. It looks fucking awesome, and probably sounds, too.

Best Buy gave me a VIP pass to cut to the front of the line there on the day of the "Doom Release Party" to get a copy; but apperantly I'm supposed to give it to a customer who's bought more that $200 worth of stuff. I'm really tempted to keep it though.

My computer should be able to play it at 1024x768 at High and not go below 15fps.

This is fucking great.

Also, that shit about it sounding great even on integrated sound?

That is fucking great.

As long as you have access to a 5.1 surround sound system, you have 5.1 surround, no Audigy ou Sound Blaster Live or whatever required.

I have a friend who works at EB and she told me they release early to pre-orders. It is about time people who pre-order start getting perks besides little metal figurines.

I just got me a copy of it, however, the computer I'm currently on isn't fast enough to handle it. Oh well. I'll just have to wait until I get out to Texas to try it out.

I just read Spokker Jone's article over at SA about Doom 3 and though it was awesome. It sums up my ideas on the game perfectly.

Well I'm back from the supposed Best Buy DOOM 3 Party. Never before have I seen so many nerds drooling in one place; except for that once Star Trek convention when the hot Bajorian chick who married the brother of the batrender in DS9 showed up.

I got to play Doom on some top-of-the-line computer hooked up to some widescreen, 5x9 foot HDTV though, and that made my night. About 150 people showed up, along with our local radio station's (DC 101) representitives to pass out tee-shirts and stickers.

a radio station showed up to a geek orgy? interesting... that doesnt really seem like the sort of thing that makes good airplay.

anyhow... i had the alpha when it was first going around. its the only thing my computer has ever had trouble with. if my Ti4600 hadnt of exploded then i would be even more excited than i am... but im going to have to wait a while before i can play on account of my still not having built my new computer.

i might actually buy this one, just on account of it being Doom. i remember when i bought the first doom... back in the day... lol am i rite??? all ur base r belong 2 us

I really, really hope this game fucking sucks.

I'm sorry, but my life will be essentially made if Doom 3 fails miserably, if only because it's been hyped more than Daikatana and Episode 1 together, and we know how well THOSE both did after the initial groups realized they were atrocious.

It doesn't suck, by any stretch of the imagination in my opinion. I played it today and I honestly can't think of anything that I didn't like.

Well...there is one problem. It needs a shoulder-mount flashlight. The game is really dark, which is all good by me because it makes it all the more creepy. They did include a hotkey to switch from current weapon to flashlight and back. ID, congratulations on recieving my soul in payment for this game, it was worth every....whatever souls are made of.

I disagree. It's better shining your flashlight into pitch black corridors then fumbling about for the change weapon key when you spot a fat, chainsaw-armed zombie charging towards you. The game's more frightning/atmospheric without the mountable flashlight.

And I fucking hate the imps.

I like how Gamespot gives it an 8.5, then spends the entire review ripping it apart with the odd "but it has nice graphics".

It would make it alot easier if the flashlight was shoulder mounted, then you wouldn't have to fumble around trying to get your gun out when you open a door. Of course, the fact that it would be easier is why it's probably not in the game.

It has nothing to do with being easy. The idea behind the game is to be a good, sci-fi horror FPS. If the flashlight were shoulder mounted, it would entirely remove the effect of the shadows and textures in the game.

What's with people saying the game has no depth? It has plenty of depth for anything coming out of the Doom series. Doom isn't supposed to be some tactical shooter, "tango down!". Doom is supposed to be a shoot first and shoot some more. My first computer games were Doom and Wolf3D. Simply put, Doom 3 satisfies all expectations of an iD fan like me.

And it doesn't satisfy fans of more depth-based FPS's.

That's entirely the point which is trying to be made. There are so many people already hyping the game to fuck, and clearly not realizing that "good for Doom" is not synonymous with "innovative", "excellent", "amazing" or the numerous other adjectives being used to describe it.
