More DOOM 3

Luckily Texas seems just a hair southwest of the blackout, so there's another couple of DOOM 3 multiplayer previews on GameSpot, IGN and Computer and Video Games based on what they've gotten to see of the shooter at QuakeCon (there are also some QuakeCon Pics on HomeLAN Fed). Here's a bit from IGN:
You'll find it's much harder to hit your enemies in this game than in the previous ones. No longer does a single hit box surround your opponents. Now all hits have to be scored on the actual polygons of the character models. Todd explains that this is a natural evolution for action games given the increasing skill of players. As they get better, targets have to get smaller to compensate. While fighting you'll find that bullets can pass in between a character's legs or the space between their torso and arms without damaging them. You'll need to be much more accurate now with each of your shots. Still, it's not too hard to score kills, particularly if you're playing against a bunch of journalists operating on two hours of sleep and a three-whiskey breakfast.

Okay. First of all. Everyone, STOP making assumptions about Doom 3.

"Since its beta, that means no optimizations." - BETA MEANS NOTHING, BETA MEANS EVERYTHING. id could of optimized the hell out of the frame rate, or they could of done nothing. Stop making stupid assinine assumptions.

"HL2 will be better than DOOM 3, id is pissing there pants" - What the hell is wrong with you? id releases a 1 minute clip of Doom 3 and HL2 releases a 15-20 minute clip and all the sudden Doom 3 is horrible? If I remember correctly most of the same people were saying "Kick ass Doom 3!!" before HL2 video was released. You have *NO CLUE* what id could not be showing you. You have *NO CLUE* if Valve has showed you everything already. You also have *NO CLUE* how FUN Doom 3 will be versus HL2. HL2 could get very repeatative and for some reason Doom 3 increadibly FUN!

"I heard Doom 3 only runs at 640x480 on a GF5900, I am going to cry now" - Just shut up. This is a GREAT thing. This means Doom 3's eye candy will last longer on the store shelve. What it doesn't mean is it will necessarily be more fun. Besides, by time the game comes out, cards will be 1.2x - 1.5x faster, and then a few months after that 1.2x faster again.

All in all, stop making assinine assumptions about Doom 3, and stop thinking HL2 will be the cats meow. id has nothing to prove to you, they already have millions, they have no reason to show you "everything", or hardly "anything".
