The only thing Doom 3 defined was disappointment.

Big question for me is; will the PC version now have online co-op play like the Xbox version? If it had that I'd definitely buy the 2 copies of the PC version to play over the LAN with my son. And if they added split-screen co-op to the 360 version I'd be in heaven. I still occasionally play and enjoy the XBLA version of Doom 2, so I think I'm a victim to the nostalgia factor with this franchise.

That's what I'm wondering also, will the console versions support online play for Doom 1/2/3?
I think it was the Orange Box on consoles that even though it had multiple games, the only one you could actually play multiplayer on was Team Fortress 2. Forget about Half-Life 2 or Portal.

I'm fairly certain that it was only the Xbox version of Doom 3 that supported online co-op; I'd have to dig out my copy to be 100% on that though. I doubt they'll be removing that in any remake. There wasn't any Vs online mode in it, if that's what you mean.

Just saw a video for The Lost Mission and it showed off a chainsaw wielding demon;  were those in the game before?

There was (at least) 1 zombie with a chainsaw in the original game. Don't remember if he was a boss or not. The sequence that introduced him was a bit like the meeting with the first skaarj in Unreal. Then again, the entire game of Doom 3 was pretty much a rehash of that scene smile

The PC version of this will support the Oculus Rift headset. Which is actually pretty cool-looking.

I saw this comparison video that makes it look like the major graphical improvement is some lighting improvements to make everything brighter and less in hard black shadow.  And motion blur, depending on whether you consider that an improvement.

there seemed to be a couple of parts where it looked like they removed some of the lighting effects.  maybe once this hits 75% off I'll consider it.

Curious in that if you install Doom 3 BFG edition to the HD on a 360, you can't launch the bonus Doom 2/Original Doom:

Quote
Twitter user Wario64 discovered the error message seen below. NowGamer reached out to Bethesda and was told by Bethesda's Matt Grandstaff that "we recommend not installing the game" as it will prevent the launch of both Doom and Doom 2. Additionally, "there is no performance advantage to installing the game to your hard drive."

This seems very odd, and I wonder if it also happens with the PS3?

I picked it up for the PC and played for about an hour and the game looks better than the vanilla Doom 3 but it isn't that great.  The bald heads still have angles, not even close to being round.  They did fix up some of the textures.  It runs very smooth with a fast frame rate.  I'm playing with a controller and you can use your flashlight at anytime even with your weapon out with the right trigger.  I do think using the flashlight takes away from the game.  It still has decent shadows and it can get very dark.

It's been fun to revisit and since I owned Doom 3 already I got it for $20 but not sure it's worth it.  You can also play Doom and Doom 2 with a controller.

Joystiq's article has a little more information. According to the comments you can still launch Doom/Doom 2 from the dashboard with the game installed, you just can't launch it from within the game. A better error message would have been 'Please launch these from the dashboard' when Doom 3 is installed to the hard drive.

I am guessing this is for PC then?...as i had the Xbox 1 Version  Tongue

saw it today for 24.99(full price new games are usually 39.99)..I have still been put off a lot by some things that have been said online,and i have a massive amount of stuff to play now(after a game drought through the summer),so i guess i can wait and maybe the price will go even lower

Bought it by accident when I forgot to check my Steam basket before completing a purchase of Crusader Kings II DLC.  Decided it wasn't worth the attempt to try and get a refund (chances of getting that are about .2 percent).  Tried it out to see what had changed.  Realized that every character still looked like Michael Ironside.  Everyone still walks like Robocop.  Textures appear a bit better.  Wide screen is available now.  I'll probably play it a bit more when my backlog gets reduced a bit more...so...2037.

I just finished both Doom 3 (original campaign, normal difficulty) and Doom 1 (original 3 episodes, Ultra Violence difficulty) from the BFG Edition. These games have kept me hooked for nearly a week now, and I'm not finished. Both games have aged very well. Doom 1 isn't exactly good looking these days, but for the first time in the history of these games, the mouse controls are good. The game is amazingly fun even today.

Doom 3 has also aged well. The criticisms it received are mostly pretty unfair, with people complaining about the lack of features from Doom on one hand (no large hordes of enemies) and the inclusion of features from Doom on the other hand (monster closets were a fundamental part of the original games, but it seems people have selective memory). I've played through the game before, but I still enjoyed myself a lot through my entire second playthrough. The game has become a little more action-focused since its original release, since the BFG edition is somewhat brighter and gives you a lot more ammo. It's still got an incredibly tense atmosphere though, and it'll make you jump. The graphics are dated, but still hold up very well. What really saves them is the lighting and general level design, both of which are done very well indeed.

Looking forward to playing through Doom 2 again, and trying the expansions to Doom 3. I might even try the additional campaigns to the first two games if I'm not tired of the games by then. Tongue

So with the recent Doom 20th anniversary I got interested in revisiting the game. Another thing that had me interested was the Brutal Doom mod that basically makes the gore and guns over the top (see link). With Brutal Doom, and the high-res textures mod installed the game is complete blast to play through again. I remembered E1L1 like the back of my hand but once I got to the second level things became less clear. Could recall some certain sections but not others. And forget remember all the secrets. Triggering some of those are so obscure.

Highly recommend going back to Doom with the new mods if you haven't played it in forever. These mods really bring the game up to date and throw in some nice surprises.

Here's a helpful guide that walks you through the process of installing Brutal Doom with the High Res textures and how to launch it. Got everything downloaded and up and running in about 15 minutes: http://www.mattloveswriting.com/how-to-install-brutal-doom/

Brutal Doom doesn't just add gore and high res textures, it can also add a plethora of fun and interesting gameplay additions.

For example, there's head shots, new weapons with reloading mechanics, proper mouse aiming, sneaking, stealth kills, melee kills, kicking, and a whole lot more.

Funny thing is, it actually all improves the game since it's handled in a way appropriate for Doom.

Yeah I just had an awesome moment where I freed one of the marines that was tied up and he became my co-op partner for awhile. Totally didn't expect that.

Really having a blast playing with this mod. The over-the-top gore and mass amounts of jibs just add so much to the game. Plus the 3rd person fatalities are blast to watch.

Something that came up last year when we were discussing this was whether the BFG edition had online co-op like the original 360 edition. I did some posting in forums when Doom3 was being discounted in a Steam sale. I found out that there's a good fan co-op patch for the original Doom3 (Last man Standing) but it apparently isn't compatible with BFG. I never did buy either version, but I think if I do get one it'd be the original with the expansion.

Yeah none of the mods work with the BFG version. So the BFG comes with the following bonuses:

- High resolutions out of the box (can get mods to improve graphics in vanilla Doom)
- The expansion pack + Lost Missions (can't get Lost Missions outside of BFG)
- Original Doom (ep 1-4) and Doom 2

I have D3 + the expansion on physical disc but ended up getting the BFG. It was $5 and was curious about Lost Missions. I do have to say its nice just launching the game and playing it right from the get go without having to fiddle with mods or having to go through the physical installs (which requires entering keys for both the main game and the expansion).
