Quake 3 Still Good For Tourney
by tIKi_mAn @ [03:18 PM] October 19 2004

A new bracket is starting up, called The Central Havoc Invitationals, featuring RA3 as their first run. If you think your team has what it takes, check it out.
"The league’s first season will be open to teams from all over North America. We invite competitive teams from any mod to come register."
Though unfortunate it is currently limited to players in the North Americas, prizes include GeForce 6800's and other powerful goodies.

Doom 3 GOLD
by DGhost @ [03:08 PM] July 14 2004

The word is out, the planet is shacking, Doom 3 is officially GOLD, here's the .plan from Todd
Welcome to id Software's Finger Service V1.5!

IT'S DONE!!!!!!!

Yes, this is the official word that DOOM 3 has been code released and has been approved for manufacturing! It won't be long now until the anticipation ends and the PH34R begins ;-) We literally just hung up with Activision and have confirmed that our latest release candidate has been mutually approved and is finally GOLD. Thanks to everyone for their patience (yeah right! =) and for everyone at id, Activision and our numerous partners for helping us create what I believe is absolutely the best game we have ever made.

So, the next question is release dates. Retailers in the States will be allowed to pick up games starting at 12:01 AM on August 3rd. The official street date is actually August 5th in the U.S.A., but some of your favorite stores will probably have it early for those of you who have to have it first. Check with your local retailer for that information.

Internationally, the game will take a few more days to make it to the store shelves. The UK will probably get it first, on or about August 6th. Everywhere else will probably be Friday, August 13th (que Twilight Zone Theme) or close to that date, with just a few exceptions (e.g. Russia and Poland). This isn't because we don't have love for you folks outside the U.S., but the localization and manufacturing process takes a bit longer outside the U.S. where we will have JVC run 24/7 to get the units built. I guess the European manufacturers prefer to give their employees nights and weekends off. Go figure!

The champagne is flowing here at id and smiles abound!

I'll update again with some DOOM 3 preparation tips (not what hardware to buy - you'll have to wait for a programmer for that sort of thing). In the meantime, I want to see those "DOOM 3 GOLD!!!" threads set new records for swamping message board servers, destroying productivity, and post counts ;-)

Recapping today's headlines....DOOM 3 GOLD!!!
Full press release is here. I couldn't stop myself from posting that! :) At last, time for me to upgrade my computer!
