    BTW, Is it just me, or does Doom 3 sound too much Halflife-ish?

    I mean replace UAC with black mesa and the opening scene sounds almost the same. I mean even replace the zombies with headcrap zombies, Z-sec with marines, torch with crowbar and viola! half-life!

    Not likely....

    "Of course, id Software is not a dumb company. An Xbox version of "Doom 3" is well underway and was heavily shown at this year's E3 trade show. When that will hit the streets, though, is still up in the air.

    "We can't say, at this point, that it's going to come out this year," said Hollenshead. "There are a couple of big pieces of work that still have to be done."

    Except D3 has the storyline of the original Doom, which came out about ten years ago.

    :naughty: In that quote I provided, it starts out like Half Life... Hmmm and Gabe was pretty hyped about the game... hmmm.... maybe he helped out!! No wonder there were delays in Hl2! So Gabe and his team could work with iD!

    Well, this is basically a remade Doom 1. So, maybe Half-Life is modelled off that! :O
    EDIT: I doubt it.

    True, half-life was a more ellaborate version of Doom, anyway. But basically Doom 3 seems to be presented like half-life.

    Edit: alievation just said it!

    Why do you pre-order at a store? Do you get it before other people or something? I always go to the store the day of release and buy it off of the store shelf. Somebody enlighten me, I want to play Doom 3 when it comes out. Not a minute later.

    in some areas its hard to get a hold of a popular game.. (like Toronto for example) especially limited editions like HL2's Collectors Edition.. there will be a limited supply one would think.. so around here if u want a CE, its best to pre-order.

    i remember Diablo2 sold out on first day.. i walked into the store to pickup my copy only to see others who hadn't pre-ordered giving me mean looks :|
