Original DOOM 3 Back on Steam; BFG Source Release Coming

The Bethesda Blog announces the removal of the original DOOM 3 from Steam is now remedied, and the standalone versions of DOOM 3 and the Resurrection of Evil expansion are now available at a lowered price for those not interested in the DOOM 3 BFG Edition’s release. This will allow players to play online with other owners of the standalone edition, as well as the ability to install the user-created modifications for id Software's shooter sequel. They also reveal that there may be more user content coming to the new edition, as word is: "For players with the BFG Edition of the game, you’ll be happy to know that we’ll be releasing the GPL source code in the near future. Stay tuned for updates."

I honestly cannot fathom being outraged -- and you're totally flying off the handle here -- because you're buying those things in the store and they're forcing you to ruin your game. Is your game ruined the second you see a cheat code on the Internet, or once you find out the game can be modded? Because that's the level of self-control we're talking about. DON'T USE THE GODDAMNED DLC IF YOU THINK IT'S OVERPOWERED. Just use those other things, which you would be getting in the normal course of the game.

I mean, if the complaint is that it makes your store cluttered, that's kind of valid, but not "OMG the Steam version is broken boohoo *sob*" material here.

Internet 101: accusing the other person of being emotional is the key to winning arguments.

But I'm not here to play games with you. I am pointing out the fact - Dead Space 2 on Steam is broken. With all the outrage about Doom 3 BFG edition, Dead Space 2 has gotten very little actual press, and hasn't been fixed STILL.

Are you familiar with the phrase "keeping an honest man honest"? You know that most door locks cannot withstand a deliberate intrusion, and yet leaving your door open isn't quite the same as having one locked - no matter how flawed the lock is.

So there goes your comparison between cheats, hacks, and having end-game items staring you in the face 30 minutes through the game.

To you this may be a non-issue, but it is definitely not a "feature" by any stretch of the imagination. It adds nothing to the game, only subtracts from it.

That's why there's a 23-page about it, on Steam:
