Kotaku reports this long interesting story about the development Doom IV.
The point of it is that Doom IV got has now been rebooted once, and is on track for next gen consoles. But, they've got a very long way to go. That the Doom IV project, has had bad management, and communication problems.
John Carmack got up in front of everyone and said something like, "Doom means two things: demons and shotguns."
Its a very interesting read, and I don't do it justice, so I just won't care to quote much.
But I made sure to make this a blog post because the Doom 1 demo, and Mortal Kombat 1 on floppy, are the things I grew up on. And then Amazon Trail. I only expect the best from Doom IV. And next-gen RAM and blu-ray and such, should create plenty of room to innovate on. I just hope they have enough fucking good, young guns and engineers, to do it justice. : /
