id & Valve Assets in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.?

Shacknews has a story up speculating about the possibility that art assets from id Software's DOOM 3 and Valve's Half-Life 2 may be present in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, GSC Game World's just-released shooter. They offer comparative screenshots to illustrate the theory, which is apparently bolstered by the fact that the suspect images seem to share filenames with the alleged source materials. They also received a quote from id's Todd Hollenshead, who indicates that if DOOM 3 images have been used, it was without permission, but they have not yet had the opportunity to investigate these allegations. They have not received requested responses from Valve or GSC.

Just as a note... it is CURRENTLY 'id', but it has been iD and ID in the past on products released by them... in other words, they can't decide how to capitalize it either, so stop whining when people get a bit confused.
