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.

Console is disabled by default in the game, but you can access it by using the following command line in the launch option: +seta com_allowconsole 1
Thanks for the tip. "Seta" doesn't work with this game though so you either always have to use the command-line option to enable the console or put it into a autoexec.cfg file which works. Enabling the console also disables achievements (not that I personally care).

change fov with g_fov XX or +set g_fov XX
That's a nice tip, but the Lost levels are so cramped that a wider view isn't really needed. The default setting is 80.

some people like the lost missions.
What people? All of the slow, unchallenging, brain-dead zombies you find in those levels? Standard Doom 3 at least has some story, cutscenes, and you feel like you are part of something bigger. These Lost levels feel like something Bethesda interns made. They have all of the worst aspects of Doom 3 in abundance with none of the charms.

dont forget the doom II addon from nerve "No Rest for the Living". first time for pc, xbox360 players know it.
That's just nine Doom II maps. I haven't played them, but given how many thousands of Doom II maps have been made, I don't see that these nine are worth $30.
