G4 DOOM3 Movie

G4/TechTV has a little movie containing new footage and words with the folks at id Software about DOOM3. It's a Windows Media 9 AVI, mirrored at 3D Gamers. Pretty cool stuff. They even give you a sneak-peek at what I believe is the new BFG. The sad thing is that I haven't seen any screaming deals for the game yet online. I'd preorder, but what's the point in paying full price? Thanks Blue's News.

On Mac and Linux DOOM3

id CEO Todd Hollenshead updated his .plan again with more information on DOOM3, specifically on the Linux and Mac OSX ports and the status of the demo. Without further ado, here's a snip:

Mac and Linux: Unfortunately I don't have dates for either of these. However, Linux binaries will be available very soon after the PC game hits store shelves. There are no plans for boxed Linux games. More remains to be done for the OSX version of DOOM 3 and that will take some time. We won't release the OSX version until it's just as polished as the PC version. The date for OSX DOOM 3 remains "when it's done", but I can confirm that it's definitely coming.

Demo: our priority was finishing the game first and now we are turning our attention to the demo. I don't have any information to share regarding any specific content, but I don't believe that we have ever disappointed in that regard in the past. We will release the demo as soon as it's done, but this probably won't happen until after the game has arrived on U.S. store shelves.

I think that today's User Friendly sums up the average geek's reaction to the news of DOOM3's golden goodness.
