It's erm... 'arriving' to me as we speak I played the leaked Alpha a while ago, and while it was nowhere near polished, it did promise to be visually stunning and as scary as the original Doom games were when they came out
Holy crap! I was just playing it and man is it awsome! ****ING scary as hell in some parts.
DISCLAIMER - Read at your own discretion, this might ruin your Doom 3 excitement!
Near the begining when you go into the toilettes for the second time after the power gets shut off and the zombies take over, damn son did that part scare me! You pick up some armour then when you look in the mirror SHIT! All i have to say is 2 am, headphones on, alone in a big dark room.....................
Actually the Doom 3 storyline right now is really reminding me of HalfLife original in the way that everything is smooth in the start, then things go out of control and you return to the same places after things go wrong.
Okay fair enough, but the Doom games are like, the foundations of our gaming generation dude! :geek: In my books, not knowing Doom will be like telling someone 5 years younger than us that you don't know Quake, or somehow 10 years younger that you don't know Half-Life
okay, maybe I'm not familiar with Doom cause not many of my friends play it, but I played Half-Life for like ages now, I grew up with half-life, and just to brag bout it, I'm one of the best among my friend
I could run the game with ease if i had a better graohic card,but now i can play it only on 800x600 resuliton with everything off except Bump mapping or on 640x480 with evertyhing on except FSAA.The game looks muh better on 800x600 with everything off except bump mapping
If i were you, i would by an AMD 64 processer, then you are secured for the future.
And perhaps and 9800pro/5900ultra or offcourse the new POWER eating GFX's from Nvidia or ATI (6800xt), but they require a big power station.
