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."

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.

With a trite saying? You have to actually put the gun in your inventory, and wield it, the same way you would have to type in a console command or install a hack. This talk of locks and honest men is why we still have people throwing bitchfits about games that let you save anywhere.

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.

Here's a stretch -- the DLC costs money, and you're getting it for free. Or: with the DLC, you can play without the new guns, but without it, you can't play with them.

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

You're never going to win an Internet argument by pointing to another forum's thread, because every forum think all the other forums are full of idiots. That thread is full of idiots. They're wrong about the ammo drops. The console versions, without DLC, also have ammo for guns you don't and shouldn't have. Those are fixed drops. If it weren't the case, you'd be picking up wrong ammo through the whole damn game.
