    I got them down at 120k each.... and MAN the graphics are simply incredible. looks like this game is going to use the extended shader power of the 9800 pro as well, sweet :)

    Hmmm, I was going to start the download again, now the link on that site says "forbidden" Maybe a new link will be up somewhere soon.

    The video is amazing!

    The interaction with the environment, character details, rag doll effects... I can't wait to see what mods come out of it!

    Well that page looks like the download is there somewhere, I just keep clicking on the links and it sends me back to where I started- I can't read that laguage- I've clicked on every link, and it doesn't download the big movie-- Do you have a specific link for the 22 min movie from that page? I can't see it.

    *edit- All the links I found are really slow- I think I'm going to install kazaa.

    *edit- does anyone know the actual name of the movie file? Thanks

    All I can say is WOW- AND- I am going to say something else- I think this will be BETTER than Doom III.

    I think maybe Carmack is spending a little too much time on his rocket science hobby, and the guys who are making HL2 are on the other hand, not. I can't wait for this game to come out- I wonder if it will run OK on an OC'd 9700pro if it's in a system with an Nforce 2 with an OC'd 1700Tbred and some fast ram, that's probably what I'll be running by then.

    This game looks absolutley amazing. The physics engine blows me away more so than any thing else.

    Well, considering that Half-Life 2 has been in development since Half-Life hit store shelves, I would be disappointed if it wasn't just as good (if not better that) Doom 3. As far as running okay, I read that the game will "scale down" to the point that it will run on a P3 733 MHz system. I'd like to see Doom 3 do that (not considering the Xbox version :p).

    I'm guessing the 587 meg video on FilePlanet is the "new" version of the video that recently came out. It's the same video as the 500 meg version, but it's a little better quality (not as dark in some parts).

    Whoa, Nelly!!!!

    What a MOVIE!!!!

    I'm still shaking my head in disbelief at some of the things that this game will feature.


    BTW, yes, the FilePlanet file had an 'improved' designation in the name. ;)
