DOOM 3 or not DOOM 3?
December 13th 2004, 15:26 CET by JasonB

It looks like DOOM 3 the movie will be in the theaters on August 5, 2005.
Budget:  $70M
Director: Andrzej Barkowiak (Cradle 2 the Grave)
Writer:   Dave Callahan (???)
Actors:  Karl Urban (Eomer from Lord of the Rings)
            Rosamund Pike (Hottie from Die Another Day)            
            "The Rock"  (Soon to be Governor "The Rock" ?)

Screenwriter Dave Callahan claims “everyone was keen to keep the game’s atmosphere”, though there are some “minor” changes done to the film’s concept: The monsters have nothing to do with hell, the plot is not taking place on Mars and “space marines” are not well “space marines” as their outfits are more like SWAT team members.

So what's DOOM 3 about this movie?  After "Final Fantasy", "Wing Commander" and "Tomb Raider" do we have any right to expect any movie based on a game to be worth watching?  The writer describes the movie as more of a horror film than an action flick...who is this jerk and where can I send the hate mail?

Ralph Macchio is already signed for the combo-spinoff franchise 'Karate Kid vs. The Demons That Are Not From Hell (Honest) From Doom (The Movie)"

I do not think I hate any individual actor enough to make them the default grunt model. I am sure someone can come up with a good example of one I can agree with. Ralph is just nothing to me. He wasn't even something when he was supposed to be something to me (read teen years).

Just out of interest is the new enhanced Crapsifter on its way? You're probably aware of this bug with the current version but... if an advanced search throws up more than one page of answers, clicking the "next page" button will lose your advanced variables.

For example if I'm searching for "wang" under Joker's name, when I click "next page" it will bring me page two of a search for the word "wang", regardless of poster identity.

This has been discussed to death, but when you're carrying 8 guns and one flashlight, taping the flashlight to one gun isn't a particularly good solution.

While looking up his age, I discovered something vaguely amusing.  The company that the space marine in Doom is forced to work for is named Union Aerospace Corporation (UAC).

No shit? UAC was plastered all over the walls in all three Doom games.

Okay, how about a headlamp?  

(And BTW, where is this dude keeping all of the weapons he's carrying around anyway?  I mean, yes, it's not realistic that he has a whole bunch of flashlights around to tape to all his weapons, but how the shit is he carrying all those weapons around anyway?)

On the one hand, he killed a woman, but on the other hand he killed a baby.  That makes it a wash for me.  I'd maybe give him five years suspended and community service.

This question applies to virtually every FPS ever made with the exception of the Halo games.

The answer is: it is a goddamn videogame you jackass.

The aim of law enforcement (in the most romantic view) is not to play goody-two-shoes, but to protect the innocent from the guilty. Who cares if they have to break the law to kill the guilty in order to do that?

Doesn't destroy my argument at all.  My argument isn't that things have to be realistic, it is that they can be as realistic or unrealistic as the game developer wants to get the gameplay devices they want.

My original "can't tape all the guns" statement wasn't made because I think the game should try to be realistic, but rather to show that if you're going to demand the game allow you to do something realistic (as Fly was), you should at least think it all the way through and make sure what you're asking for really is realistic....

So fuck you, McBain, you stupid Mick.

I always suspect that an always-on flashlight wasn't provided due to performance issues.  After all, it's one less lightsource you have to worry about during hectic firefight scenes.

Stupid decision any way you slice it, though.

As for the "how can you carry all those guns" blehblah, shush up already or someone is going to hear you and set about "fixing" things.  After all, this is what happened with Deus Ex 2 and we all got "unified ammo" - next we'll get a "unified gun" that picks up different ammo - and later, we'll get a one gun that picks up one ammo type, but magically converts that ammo into a flamethrower, .45 pistol, or chainsaw at will.  YAY!

I'm anti-death penalty myself.  If you have to kill a suspect trying to aprehend them or to stop a crime in progress, that's one thing - but after he's been captured and incarcerated, then killing him is going beyond justice and making people safe, into the realm of pure revenge.  Bleh to that - and, like Chuckles said, what if it turns up, years later, that he didn't actually do it?  You never know.

The changes they're making for the movie don't bother me, fans always bitch and whine about any adaptation (see also: comic book movies) but in the end the only thing that matters is whether the movie is any good or not.  Which brings us to the most important point; the movie is going to suck.  There is nothing they can do that'll make it not suck.  It doesn't matter if they based the whole thing flawlessly on the Doom series and even included a fucking IDDQD cheat, it'll still suck.  HOLLYWOOD: STOP MAKING VIDEOGAME MOVIES, THEY SUCK.  It's true you know - take HL2 for instance, it's got bundles of atmosphere that could work really well in movie form, but if they ever make the movie it'll suck.

However in response to Scott's post, I don't think it'll hurt the Doom "brand", I think the public are savvy enough to draw the line between games and movies.  Think about the whichever Game: The Movie you've seen, has the painful awfulness of the movie affected how you rate the game or any future titles in the series?  Basically Id can kill the brand in two ways, by releasing crap games or by not releasing anything at all.

But you can just as easily find a "realism" argument for taping a gun to each weapon, say limit the number of weapons with a taped gun to the number of flashlights you found so far in the game.  Declaring it just a game at any point is purely arbitrary and in this case was merely an argumentative convenience for you.

So fuck you, McBain, you stupid Mick.

Overreact much?

Even if it wasn't for the fact that I don't give a flying fuck about movies based on games, I'd probably still skip this crap (unless being sufficiently wasted, of course).

What's even more infuriating than what these pricks have done to the little story there was to Doom is the fact that the Doom 3 expansion pack is featuring an Ionized Plasma Levitator.

Even if they actually do execute him (this IS in California, remember?) it won't happen for a few years - at best. Plenty of time for ass-raping and whatnot.

The arguments against are fairly practical.

A. There's no undo on the Electric Chair. With prison you can at least go "oops, my bad" and hand the guy a check for time lost.

B. It's expensive. Seeing as how it's about 5 times more expensive to fry a guy than to lock him up. Save some federal dollars, put em back in your pocket and let the perps rot in jail.

C. Deterrence. The economic payoff of a criminal striking a balance between the chair and life in jail are so small it hardly seems worth the effort. The differences leading to each outcome are so vague and capricous that there is no value. You're also at the top end of the punishment scale, so there's still not much to work with.

D. Wouldn't your life be just that much more valuable if there weren't death penalty debates all the time? Imagine the time not wasted on messageboards and trashy TV. No more jailhouse spectacles on execution dates.


On the economics angle, and how reducing sentences leads to less crime:


In New York, the minimum sentence for second-degree murder is 15 years. For first-degree murder it's 20 years. If the minimum mandatory sentence for the sale of more than two ounce of heroin or cocaine remains at 15 years, the additional punishment suffered by drug dealers who commit 2nd-degree murder during drug sales gone bad is now as low as nothing. For first-degree murder the additional penalty is as low as five years.

Punishing drug sellers as harshly as we punish murderers turns drug sellers into murderers.


It's something England discovered when they were plagued with highwaymen. If the sentence for robbery and murder were both excution, you left the robber no reason to leave you alive after the robbery. After more than a few dead rich people, the law got changed pronto.

Immorality: The morality of those who are having a better time.
