Doom 3 BFG Remastered Edition Coming this Fall

A re-mastered, re-vamped and re-vitalised version of the iconic Mars base shooter Doom 3, is set to be released on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 this autumn.

Known as Doom 3: BFG Edition, the new version will come bundled with the original Doom and Doom 2 games, as well as seven new levels encompassing a new single player campaign for Doom 3, known as "The Lost Mission."

Graphics have been tweaked to bring about HD textures, 3D support and 5.1 surround sound, as well as a few new lighting effects to make the whole package feel more contemporary. Currently available gameplay footage isn't going to blow anyone away, but you wouldn't know you were looking at a game originally released in 2004.

A couple of minor gameplay improvements will also be noticeable. A body armour mounted flash-light allows players to see a little more while slaying hell spawn and an auto save checkpoint feature will mean there's no issues for those who have long forgotten about hitting F5 for a quicksave.

Another Graphical Rebirth Game I Want

This is a step in the right direction for PC gaming. So many of our favorite games are still very fun to play. Some, however, are only good to pull out for nostalgia sake. One of my favorite games is Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. A game that many FPS fans still consider the best team-based shooter on the PC. I do realize that ET was released free, post RTCW, but many are still playing this game daily! There are entire sites and servers dedicated to pub and competition matches. ET truly deserves a graphical makeover. I would love to see ET's Goldrush, Oasis and the other stock maps running on the Doom3 engine. I would love to see a bit of a graphics engine boost while maintaining the physics and movement fans are used to. There are many games that are 6-10 years old that are still popular and held at the tops of gamers favorites lists...they just need a little graphical upgrade and maybe a decent map designing program so mappers can really take advantage of more modern level aesthetics, presentation and overall experience of the reboot.

The Flash Light

" A body armour mounted flash-light allows players to see a little more while slaying hell spawn"

That line is all that really mattered in this whole thing... Because honestly... a "marine" a "Space marine" at that who did NOT know how to simultaneously use a Flashlight with a Pistol at the same time... Did not get trained properly.. Hell... to not be able to Rip a piece of cloth of a hostile he took down to tie the light to the end of his Rifle.. Again... not a well trained Marine...
