"The basic goal is to recreate the original Doom and Doom 2 in the idTech4 engine with all the engine eye candy ID Software has provided us with so we can recreate the game for a classic Doom player to remember and enjoy the memories of the classics in a modernized way, but keeping the old Doom spirit well in the game."

The Doom Reborn project has just released a pre-beta version for testing so if you are interested in heading back to the original game with an updated skin, check it out.

One addition to Doom 3 I loved was Super Turbo Turkey Puncher 3. It's a really funny game which nods to the original Doom. There is a Arcade Cabinet of Super Turbo Turkey Puncher 3 in the Mars Base Kitchen you can play right at the start.

The only thing you can do in the game is punch and kill Turkeys. One thing I noticed during this play through of Turkey Puncher is that if you hit the punch button faster you get a higher score for killing a Turkey. With that knowledge I punched turkeys to my current high score of 26,220.

I issue a challenge to all Super Turbo Turkey Puncher 3 fans, attempt to beat my score and post your results. I claim current champion... Read All

I picked up Doom 3: BFG Edition on launch day because I love all things Doom. I was blown away with the original Doom and how it ushered in the era of shooters. I love Doom 2 and the double barred shotgun. When Doom 3 came out and I had a computer good enough to play it I enjoyed it for its dark horror style. A few years later I replayed Doom 3 and again, enjoyed its dark atmosphere but that time I turned off the lights and cranked up the sound.

When iD Software announced Doom 3: BFG Edition I was excited. Doom 3: BFG Editions big additions are the original Doom & Doom 2. It also includes some new content for Doom 3 in the Lost Levels. It can also be... Read All

One treat of PAX this year was being able to get my hands on the new Doom 3 BFG Edition. The level they demoed was the bonus "lost mission" that will ship with the game. The system I played on was Doom 3 BFG Edition in 3D on the XBox 360.

I didn't have to wait in line too long and in a few minutes I put on the 3D glasses and extremely comfortable earphones and I was of exploring. Took me a minute or so to orient myself to the 360 controls but in a minute I was having fun. I have never enjoyed playing a game in 3D as much as this and I was really enjoying how immersive the 3D was. Switching weapons was fun, shooting the bad guys far away was fun... everything...

New trailer released for Quakecon 2012 about the new missions added to Doom 3: BFG edition. I can't wait to go back to the corridors of Doom 3!

Few video game companies tinker with hardware like this. Taking a mounted display and making it work really well with your video game is amazing. John Carmack is well suited to this because he deeply understands how this technology all works and I envy him for being able to talk the time and dabble in this kind of work. The video is a fascinating look into the tech he has been working on with head mounted displays. Have to admit, slapping a screen inches from my face doesn't appeal to me, but it the game adjusts to my movements that does appeal to me.

The video drops a few tid-bits about Doom 3 BFG edition in that it will ship with 3D and a few other... Read All

When I saw the news today that iD will be releasing "Doom 3 BFG Edition" I was extremely excited. Few games get the "HD/re-release" treatment and I just didn't figure Doom 3 would be one of the lucky few games that get it. Add in the Doom 3 expansion, the original Doom and Doom 2 and new content and my mind was blown.

But enough of my hyperventilating nerdery, here are some words from the masters of doom themselves:

"A number of companies have done these 'retro projects,'" says Willits, using the company's code name for Doom BFG, "but we're trying to do something with new content. We have all the games. We tried to make the offering the best we can."

Looks like there may be a screenshot of Doom 4 floating around. If this is real, I am excited. Even if it isn't, the fact that Doom 4 is being made excites me enough.

@jdodson have you seen this?

Doom 3 is a game that I happily put on my most loved games list. I have played it through a few times now and every time really enjoy myself. Some people hate on the fact you cant use the flashlight and a fun at the same time. Some people hate on the fact that the game is dark. But both of those things are game mechanics that make the game even more unique and fun for me. For instance, when you are walking through the Mars base and its dark you can either:

A) Keep your shotgun handy and stay "safe" knowing you can shoot zombie heads off.

Or

B) Have your flashlight ready and see whats ahead while not being able to do jack squat when a demon starts throwing... Read All
