There is just *so* much hype surrounding this game, and the reviews look pretty good (both of them so far ), yet I hear lots of the typical 'I don't care' things in various forums, so I thought I'd check out a with a poll here.

I'm interested in my own feelings ... I voted for the 'yes but no rush' option, which is somewhat surprising given how many times I've played the original through the years. I guess it just hasn't lit my shorts on fire like some other games ...

I don't really care for Doom, but I do care about what they contribute time and time again. Like new engines and different perspectives on things. Maybe if the price comes down in the next year, and also I upgrade my computer for their engine.

I am just more into UT and the like ;)

The more I hear about this game, the less I want it.

I'm looking forward to Halo 2 instead.

Half-life 2! :D

Umm my computer wouldn't be able to run Doom 3 anyways, and I don't really like D3's genre...

Where's the "I already have it!" option? :(

I think I'm in the same boat that you're in, TXA. I'll get it, but I really am in no big hurry to get it.

I'll probobly check out the demo when that comes out.

I have a feeling I'm going to soil myself when I play though.

*hint hint* You're a mod, RP. You can add the option. ;)

Anyways, I'll get it when the price drops to $30 or less. :)

If your computer won't run Doom 3 at minimum system requirements I'm not gonna see play you on Counter-Strike for Half-life 2 because you won't be able to run it.

HL2 Specs (http://halflife2.filefront.com/file.stuff?body=HL2_Requirements)

Doom 3 Specs (http://www.doom3portal.com/info/systemreq.php)

HL2 doesn't require as much as you'd think.

Those were form a year ago and developers have said that those were aimed too low. Mainly on Processor Speed. A 1.2 ghz 256 mb of ram 64-128 mb video card should run it fine. Not many bells and whistles, but ya...just fine.

Didn't know that was old,

And those req. are still reasonably low.

I have no real interest for Doom III. Hell, I've already got a list of games to buy after I get a new graphic card...

not into FPS for a few reasons, but perhaps the game engine may contribute to a JK sequel...which will be nice... :D

Im much more excited about
1. KOTOR2
2. FF 12
3. FF 7 AC
4. NWN sequel ?
5. Bloodrayne 2

1) I could play it on my grandparent's computer, it can fit all of the requirements except maybe the sound card.

2) I'm expecting to get a new computer, whether it's building a new one or buying one.

3) I'm waiting for Half-Life 2 to come out, but I'm not sure if I can buy it. Yes that doesn't make too much sense, but who cares? ...

I might get it, but I don't think i'm gonna (be able to) finish it, so I'll 'acquire it' for free... :o

Prime
08-05-2004, 01:40 PM
I'll probably skip it...

I'll proably skip it cause I heard that the multiplayer is dumb, which is the only reason i buy pc games. I'll maybe rent the xbox version.

The real options are
1) Yeah, I'm getting it
2) My PC ain't up to it so i'll just say i aint interested
3) I'm an rpg geek
4) HL funie
5) Halo Fundie


:p

All my spare cash is going towards a new xbox (old one broke) and Halo 2.


I might rent the xbox version when I can though.

I just got it, it's a great linear gorey fps with stunning graphics that runs surprisingly well.

I doubt it'll be as groundbreaking as the original but i'll probably buy it to give my radeon x800 xt something to play with besides nerf arena :D

Be sure to get the Catalyst 4.9 BETA drivers...

Anthony
08-07-2004, 03:23 PM
I thought it was 4.9 ALPHA drivers. :/


I have modded 4.7 drivers

After reading the Gamespot review, I don't think I'll be getting it.

I want more than a good looking game. I want intelligence, and re-playability as well, not to mention a decent multi-player.
