No vita release? Nonetheless, this is terrific news. I've been wanting a Doom 3 remaster for a while now, but had never expected a release with new maps. Not sure how I feel about the mounted flashlight though, I hope that is only an option, and not mandatory.

Is it actually being released on PC? I didn't see the PC logo at the end of trailer. If it is, I hope you can still quicksave. I hate checkpoints, don't know why, I just do.

Never mind. I'm just blind & some how didn't notice the PC box at the end.

I think it's because I haven't had my coffee yet but I was reading the entire thing thinking it was the original Doom being remastered. I was super hyped. I'm disappointed but yay Doom, none the less.

I've been looking forward to Doom 4 for years, but this is still a welcome addition to the series. Doom 3 wasn't the worst FPS of all time by a long shot, my only two complaints were the flashlight situation (which is being rectified) and how dull it got eventually. Doom 3 was a very long game, and it was more of the same every level. The fear factor wore off about half-way through the game because you can only hide an imp under the stairs or around a corner so many times before it becomes easy to predict an ambush. Aside from these two flaws, I found the atmosphere very dreadful and gorgeous.

Doom 3 definitely shows its age but I think it still looks good, at least when you're surveying a room and don't press your face to any surface.

I think it's hilarious that when this game came out people who didn't know what they were doing were flooding forums with "can I run it" threads, and the high-end hardware of the day was the only thing that could bring you the best graphics. These days you can run the game at full settings using an off-the-shelf system with the weakest of modern GPUs, or maybe even integrated graphics.

I am looking forward to this.. I couldn't play it on Ultra back in the day as my GPU had 256Mb VRAM and Ultra wanted 512Mb. I remember that era of gaming fondly when games would come out and often there wasn't hardware available to max it out so everyone played it on High until the next gen of GPU's launched with the VRAM or the Pixel Pipelines to run Ultra at playable FPS.. Oh those were the days..

I was the same my computer back then was a fine beast, but my Geforce FX 5950 could only run it on high (which looked amazing back then anyway).

It was a glorious era for PC gaming indeed (and gaming in general really), a lot of great games.

Read about this yesterday and am pretty psyched. I liked Doom 3, albeit the flashlight issues, but have never wanted to grab a 360 just to play a retro title. A remastering (with a flashlight fix included), and the Resurrection of Evil addage, and the original games = win. Also hated Rage, so this would be a plus. Kinda owe us anyway for Duke Nukem.
