Any new beta news on HL2 or Doom3
 
I know the alpha/beta of Doom3 I have is over a year old. I was wondering
if anyone had heard if they will be releasing any new betas any time soon?
Any word from ID on a release date for Doom3? I think I'm more excited
about the engine than the game since I'm looking forward to a game like Call
of Duty2 or Jedi Knight X using that engine.

Thanks

Check www.doom3.com on a regular basis. It went live just before xmas and
its apparently 'coming soon'. In my mind - they're getting ready to ship
it - box art, manuals etc, and amassing stockpiles of the game to send out
to vendors. plus maybe a little last minute code polishing - you know how
carmack is. :P

Ship date 15 April 2004 according to EB games. Not
for me. I'll wait until it comes on firesale. I've had enough of
gory-monsters and dreary post-apocalyptic 'dungeons' to
last me a lifetime.

I will enjoy Far Cry (23 March 2004) much better anyway with
its idyllic-island settings and open game-play.

Somebody needs to do a Far Cry mod with a bunch of surfing
beach-babes............

If the game is part of the "The Way It's Meant to Be Played" campaign,
I wouldn't be suprised if Dawn surfs around the island wearing
transparent Nvidia branded bras. Every nerd with a nose pimple would
flock up the servers.
