Anyways it may have been released yesterday or earlier for all I know...

Soime stores already have the game in stock, but not on their shelves, so it doesn't suprise me that Amazon has it.


And I'm not too interested in Doom 3 anyway.

Wow, I thought I was the only gamer around that wasn't excited about Doom 3. Sure the graphics look good, but the Doom series has never really been my cup of tea.

Neither am I, but I just found it as new news because I never paid much attention to release dates...

"We now have the official minimum system requirements for DOOM 3 (thanks: Blues): 1.5-gigahertz Intel Pentium 4 chip or AMD Athlon 1500, 384 megabytes of memory, two gigabytes of hard drive space, an nVidia GeForce 3 graphics card or better or an ATI Technologies 8500 or better. If you're still keeping a GeForce 2MX/4MX and an older Pentium III in your PC, now's the time for an upgrade and here are a few tips. The ideal rig would include a 3GHz Intel Pentium 4 or a 3000+ AMD Barton, 1GB of RAM, a 6800 or X800 GPU based video card, the latest sound card from Creative (Audigy 2 ZS), a Western Digital Raptor (or 2 in a RAID setup), a DVD drive and the best peripherals money can buy (keyboard/mouse). A nice 19" monitor supporting a decent resolution at a higher refresh rate is a must also. I know that paying for all these could kill your summer holiday plans, but we're talking DOOM 3 here, right? "

I'm more of a Half-life boy myself, but I guess my disinterest in Doom 3 might have something to do with the fact that I never played the first two.

....WOW..

I understand not playing Doom 2, but not even playing the first Doom?

You suck at life.

Hmmm...chances are, if you can play UT2004 well, you can play Doom 3 fine. What are your system specs?

Sabretooth

Pentium III 1GHz
nVidia Riva TNT2 Model 64
Creative Vibra 128 Sound Card
40X CD Writer (ROM Drive)

I didn't even know doom 3 was out this week.

never got into doom, and I HAVE played the first 2. Some people like it, some people think it's stupid.
I'm one of the people who think it's retarded.




but that will never answer me this question.. Why is everyone so in love with CS? I mean.. Why?
No pun intended to those who like it. I just don't why it's So great

I don't get why people play Counter-strike either, there are much, much better mods for Half-life than Counter-strike. Natural Selection and Day of Defeat are just two examples.

I'll probobly ******* Doom 3, meh.

Ouch.

Well, if you update your video card to a Geforce 3 and your OS to XP, you might run it well without turning off any of the important stuff...

NO NO NO! Doom 3 isn't out till the 6th for me..... AHHHHH I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE

So far, so good. The animations are awesome. The demons don't just spawn or drop from a ceiling or run through a hole in the wall.....they CRAWL smoothly from places. One came from a vent and started crawling down a wall at me, then jumped from the wall to an adjecent wall, and then onto me.

It's very smooth. It literally looks like it's crawling.
