Ships Ahoy - DOOM 3: BFG Edition

The Bethesda Blog announces today is the North American release day for the DOOM 3: BFG Edition, an enhanced edition of id Software's first-person shooter series. Here's the Launch Trailer, and here's word:

Relive your favorite moments of DOOM with the newly-released DOOM 3 BFG Edition — available now in North America and this Friday in Europe on Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3!

BFG Edition includes the original versions DOOM and DOOM II, as well as re-mastered versions of DOOM 3 and its Resurrection of Evil add-on pack. And for the first time ever, play eight never-before-seen DOOM 3 levels in ‘The Lost Mission’.

Later today, PS3 players will be able to download the game directly on PSN. And if you already own DOOM 3 on Steam, between now and November 13th you can save $10 on your purchase.

10. Get the original release of Doom 3 if you want mods. Oct 17, 2012, 01:16 hb3d

If I can't mod it or anything, kinda kills a lot of it for me
There's just no reason for a serious PC gamer to buy this version. If for some reason you don't already have the original release of Doom 3 and the RoE add-on, buy that instead and download some of the great mods for that version like the classic Doom mod and the co-op mods. The Doom 3 source code is now open source too, so if you are serious about mod creation, the sky is the limit.

I've played a few of the levels of the "Lost" missions, and they are just cramped, linear, boring garbage with virtually no story. The few audio logs and emails you find are just terribly uninteresting. Any third-party single-player maps made by modders for the original Doom 3 release can't be any worse than these.

As for supposedly improved visuals in this BFG edition, I'm not seeing it. The game looks like the same game made in 2004. Of course there are no settings in the menus for video aside from resolution, FPS 60/120 (why fixed?), bloom, and antialiasing (4X max).
