I think HL2 will be a blast, and I am pretty damn stoked about DOOM3 too.
From my point of view, I am looking for the next big Online FPS game. I really don't care what it is, as long as it hs the quality of online play I have come to expect in the games I get deeply involved with. I'm into the whole competetive play/clan thing, and right now there is nothing out there worth playing hard IMO. It's all been done to death. In the past I have always played Quake games, or mods based on Quake engines, with the exception of Tribes 1 and 2. The last one I played, before I decided to take some time off, was Urban Terror, a Q3 mod. It's pretty fun, but is evolving too slowly and I played it to death. Now I find myself with nothing to play....
Valve knows HL1 multiplayer wasn't popular, and hopefully they have learned from that. DOOM 3's multiplayer will be designed for 4 players (from what we have heard so far). This means it could be a couple months after DOOM 3 hits shelves before we see even a basic mod, and the appropriate sized maps, that allow for a 16-32 player game. Kind of a bummer, but like I said, who knows. Maybe id will get the tools out to us around xmas time so we can get some stuff started.
He cut the possum's face off then cut around the eye socket. In the center of the belt buckle, where the possum's eye would be, he has placed a small piece of wood from his old '52 Ford's home made railroad tie bumper. Damn, he misses that truck.
