Doom 3 official release date has been set to August 3rd I hear...

Can't wait :D

(especially since that is ONE day before I leave to go on my church mission for 2 years...i plan on playing doom 3 all day long that day)

It's nice that you'll be spending a day killing things before you go to Italy.

Also, I'll be really surprised if this makes that date.,

Let's just call it deallocation of video memory and computer resources :)

Personally I just think id's hanging around waiting for Valve to show its hand. Then again, we'd be waiting a loooooooong time if that was the case... :rolleyes:

It's nice to have a date in mind, but frankly lots of retailers just pick dates with no real basis. I personally hope to hell it is confirmed and it is the planned release date -- I'd love to play the game, but I doubt it is.

The wait for D3 and HL2 has been a sucky one--if the mods for hl2 wern't so awsome I'd refuse to buy the game on the basis of Valve being a sucky studio for customer relations and its release date shenanigins. But frankly, I can't wait to play cs and dod on the new source engine.

You're going on your mission? Where to?

I'm not much of a first-person-shooter player so I don't know much about Doom, but I remember playing it back when I was like 10(which was only 4 years ago, but... you know :P)

But I remember playing Doom 1, a demo of Doom 2, and a demo of Doom 3.

Has it really taken that long for Doom 3 to come out?

Didn't Valve do a near-complete rewrite after the code was stolen a few months ago?

They've redone the networking code to shore it up, that's a fact, as to the rest of it, who knows?

The entire LAN code was revised because of security issues that surfaced once the code was out and being looked at, i guess they got some tips and listened?

Hard to say with the rest of it. ID can wait for valve all they want, Doom3 isnt going to touch HL imo.

yeah, I heard the STEAM code for the game was also bonked. strange that they kept the source code for a multi-million dollar project on a computer directly linked to the web......

I bet they purposely "leaked" the source code, all part of a scheme to get people more excited about the game, and make more money!

so i guess they are paying the people they arrested and charged with the leak to go to jail so they wont be revealed in their little advertising scheme

no, he wasn't saying that they distributed their own code. He is saying like I said that they left security holes wide open(as I told you, they had the code on a computer that was accessed to the internet, would you do that with code that is worth multiple millions of $$$?).

yes he is:

as the word "puposley" indicates. :/


as to what he said, i think it's not very viable for valve because
a) they look like a bunch of 'tards for getting their source pwn3d
b) they are having to pay their developers more to add stuff into the game
c) people are getting miffed at the wait(i can't say it's made me any more excited about the game)
