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.

Sooner or later, the legend will fade and ID will have to prove themselves based on the current market. Dont get me wrong - I am totally convinced D3 will be the next step in video games presentation and graphics, and that it will raise the bar incredibly high. I am just thinking that carmack and friends might be growing a bit distant from the world at large - sitting as they are in their ivory towers of gaming heaven, working and programming on machines floating in liquid coolant. Your average joe gamer doesnt quite have the income to keep his machine competitive with the latest CRAY mainframe. Valve realizes this - and as such will capture a HUGE MASSIVE market share. ID just realized this recently - and decided to wait it out a bit.

The days of under spec'ing minimum system requirements have hit a terminal velocity here - and sooner or later the industry itself will begin to object.
