I was wondering the same thing. CS still has a huge multiplayer fanbase, but it appears they've missed their window of opportunity for healthy sales, or are rapidly approaching that point.

"There is therefore no way to justify the hype for Doom 3 the game"

Yes there are: John Carmack's next engine. id doing single player. Content and themes drawn from a revolutionary game that influenced many for years to come.

"There is nothing unique about Doom 3 the game, except the engine" You believe you've seen everything from screens and videos. I believe there is much id has kept to itself regarding Doom 3 gameplay.

You like to argue 99% of the points. We get it. It's too bad really - you say some things that are right, but they get lost in the overblown misstated hype.

oh Xombie x0mbie x0mb|e Xombie, "You can't see it while moving, but the textures and models are obviously pretty sub-par." - Doomdiculous. The (ahem) Elvis-like upper-lip snarl on the guy's face when the skull flys into him, the monster climbing down the pipe, the fluid and convincing movement of every character in the video, the drawn detail...where is it "sub-par"?

"It's not efficient, though." - 1024x768x32 at just under 40 fps on a Ti4200 on pre-release software, hardware and drivers.(http://www.tomshardware.com/graphic/20030512/geforce_fx_5900-11.html)

"They simply sacrificed many graphical features" - which features were sacrificed?

"Very different from the original's "toss a horde at you" style." - agreed. Thank God.

(not that i had my boxing gloves on or anything
about DNF - who knows?! What is your take? I DO have confidence in Broussard and crew, and ultimately believe the game is still around and will of course see the light of day. Perusing the 3drealms boards, George clearly understands very well what works and what does not in a game, especially a FPS. Perhaps it'll unfurl something similar to HL2...no news for a long while, then blam. Of course then we can all join the "Yes, but is it Doom 4?" threads!

Oh please! Nothing personal dude, but this post is full of so much crapola it's actually funny. "insider trading"?! Huh? Doom 3's visual innovation and level of tech has sprung from Carmack's mind and the talent of id's staff, not a "very expensive and tideous development process". Expensive how? New workstations? Employees? Tools? id is like 3drealms - self-funded and independent. Carmack himself said in a gamespy interview "The process of building the new engine went much more smoothly than anything we have done before" (http://www.gamespy.com/e32002/pc/carmack/)
Carmack has too much integrity to be swayed by nothing but dollars, even from Microsoft.

and really, has it been clarified what is meant by "xbox exclusive"? Only on the xbox and PC? Only on the xbox? On the xbox first?

No s**t! This is going to be the first $1000-2000 game in history!

Then again, the round of benchmarks (see tomshardware) show that playable performance is achieved with a Ti4200 - quite encouraging considering the pre-release nature of the hardware, drivers and the game itself.

7. Multiple shadows? May 13, 2003, 11:03 Elvis
 
Maybe I'm a slow clod whose missed this...but apparently Doom 3 has multiple shadows for a single character?

In this shot, http://games.tiscali.cz/clanek/screen_detail.asp?id=3463&img=bog2.jpg, there are two shadows in the leftmost headspider.

In previous shots/videos (and even leaks :), I have seen one shadow per object, and that shadow has been pitch black; the shadows in this shot are not pitch black, but blended with a surface.

PCGamer says "a hefty portion of the game is set in a fictional metropolis called City 17 in a region that resembles Eastern Europe" <snip>

7. Re: find some (new to me) screenies here May 8, 2003, 11:01 Elvis
 
THanks Morgan19. While I was hoping to return to Black Mesa for HL2 (and who know perhaps it'll make an appearance), just cause the whole government-funded-complex-that-seems-to-go-on-forever setting there is awesome, the more I see of City 17 I doubt I'll be missing it.

And you're right about the comments!, which brings to mind one I saw recently from Dennis Miller: "I would call the French scumbags, but that, of course, would be a disservice to bags filled with scum"

(shot #1)

certainly no "quake 1" lighting visible in this scene. . .and the first shot I've seen that shows the HUD.

http://gamers.slashdot.org has gone live, not a bad stop for gaming news, and g-spy: http://spy.g-spotting.net/, a google-news style site.

still easier to just hit bluesnews & shacknews if you ask me!
