More DOOM 3

With QuakeCon getting underway, there are some QuakeCon Doom 3 Multiplayer Impressions on HomeLAN Fed describing the multiplayer action on tap at the show. Since some of the first comments on the story below concern physics, here is what this update has to say on the subject: "Rag doll physics was in evidence during the Doom III multiplayer demo, including objects like boxes and barrels that could be moved by weapons fire and a dead body hanging from the ceiling during one portion of the level that could also be moved by weapons fire. Some glass windows could also be smash but unlike most glass in games the window didn’t shatter all at once but rather in pieces."

I swear to god, some people will never be happy. You're the kind of guy who looks down on the world as if everything they do is wrong, and you need to let them know they're doing it that way, without any word on how to fix it.

My point is that even though I plan to buy both games I am sick of hearing people describing each as the be-all and end-all. Some peple need to realise that as good as each game is they are not even quite as good as they like to think they are.

Half Life 2 from a purely objective point of view is a game without peers in terms of providing a game engine for budding developers to create mods for. Already we've seen modders of yesteryear become the innovators and contributors of today. This isn't about graphics entirely, this is about fun, and finding new ways to have it. When someone bounced the idea of playing basketball with manipulator guns off Gabe, his reply was something to the tune of "yeah, you could do it" in a way that made me feel all tingly inside.

Nobody can say this for sure until they start making mods for this game and DOOM3. Although a mod for HalfLife 1 was great that doesn't guarantee that it will be great for HalfLife 2. So you are not being objective... you are being prematurely subjective without the evidence to back it up.

Go find someone elses parade to rain on you cynical old man.

I'm not raining on anyones parade, although some people here seem to enjoy doing so, saying one game is better because of this feature or that feature. I am just pointing out that BOTH games have some real, fundamental problems. At the same time BOTH games are going to be really good when they come out. Unfortunately HL2 isn't going to be that much better graphically and DOOM3 is going to cost me 10 x the cost of the game itself in upgrades to play it.

P.S. Ever think the movie was recorded on lowest difficulty so that it could show off the game

The bink videos are 1024 x 768. That is fairly high quality and it looks worse than the big 600 meg video that was released just after E3 because all the graphical artifacts are more obvious.

Don't take it so personally, man. In 5 years we will all be laughing at how GREAT we thought each of these games were.
