Guess I'll be Going to Best Buy Today

Doom 3 is in stores now, and apparently it is very, very good:

You will jump back. A lot. Even if you've played through an area before, even if you know where all the demons are, you will still be jolted because Id's craftsmen did such a careful job orchestrating your claustrophobia. Yes, we may be a little jaded on scripted sequences guiding the action, but this three-ring circus of adrenaline and fear elevates gaming as an art form and puts it on par with Hollywood.

And yes, Virginia, I do have the Uber-system required to play the thing maxed out.

Damn... just when my tan started looking good too...

Having played the game, I can say it really DOES need a 5.1 (or 6.1 if you can afford it) surround sound rig. Without it, you'll jump when you hear an imp screech in your ear... with it, you'll knock your chair into the wall hard enough to break it in half.

It's that damn good.

This damned thing's giving me heart attack enough thank you very much. Suddenly I'm *glad* I didn't upgrade the sound.
