GameSpy is running an introduction to the Doom3 expansion pack, Resurrection of Evil, due out April 5, 2005. That's right, in just over a month, not a year and a month.
"One of the most popular sections of DOOM 3 was the ancient civilization area introduced towards the end of the game, and that's basically where the expansion begins.
Gamespot is running a story reporting that proposed legislation would make it illegal for retailers in the state to sell or rent violent games to children under 17. Initially that sounds like it might be a good idea, but I can't help but to cringe each time another area of life becomes over-regulated.
Atari is planning to release another video game based on The Matrix Trilogy just in time for Christmas. Their 2003 title Enter the Matrix sold approximately 6 million copies. I found Enter the Matrix to disjointed and far removed from it's namesake. The storyline, if you can call it that, was hard to follow, the goal was unclear, and the "action scenes" were boring and repetitive. I hope for more with The Matrix: Path of Neo".
Here's a story on a board game based on and entitled Doom: The Board Game. This is apparently not breaking news, but I just heard about and got a chuckle over it a few days ago. But hey, I think it might make a neato gift for those diehard doom series lovers, or those who wished they could have played doom3 but couldn't swing the hardware upgrade! Get yours here!
