I have just observed something both very clever and very ominous in this new trailer. There is a very brief shot of 3 rather primitive, hellish-looking stones, a screenshot of which I have posted. Now this took me a moment, but due to ever-present curiosity and a keen eye for minute detail, I noticed that each of the stones represent something, possibly a story if you will. Examine the large shot, then the smaller ones, from left to right:

Stone 1 (once again, left to right) is engraved with the box art from the original Doom, showing the marine perched on a cliff in hell, struggling to fight off the demons.

Stone 2 is, I believe a representation of the soul cube; it is much like a cave painting: notice how it shows a simple but large cube at top, with lines pointing at or aware from it, and there are several bodily figures stretched it toward it :naughty: ...it appears to be sucking in souls, yes?

Stone 3 is a representation of what we have seen in the first Doom 3 PC trailer: remember the skull-shaped mountain with the horns whose mouth the camera zoomed into very quickly before showing the destruction of the UAC base? That is it at the top, along with a couple of Hell Knights roaming nearby, as seen in some of the newer Xbox screenshots.

I am sure this has some significance in the Doom 3 storyline, and that it would be interesting to point out. :lookaround:

Great Observations. You've got a great eye. And this also shows id's work on detail.

Thanks, and yes indeed. This is why the company is named "id" Software for those of you still puzzled by the question. It is not pronounced "I-D," or "eye-dee," as some may think; rather, id is Stigmund Freud's primal part of the human psyche, the psyche itself, in simple terms, being the nature that makes up the human mind and it's drives and emotions. The id is the primal part of the human psyche, meaning that is consists of basic animalistic drives and emotions, such fear, aggression, etc...that is why the company is called id Software, because their games deeply effect that part of our minds, creating fear, aggression to fight and exhiliaration coming from things in a fight like an adrenaline rush. :evilgrin:

I like the tie-ins to the first Doom, the three stones in particular are obviously a piece of the puzzle you'll have to figure out. The effects are incredible. The Arch Vile is really cool. I think this game will easily exceed any of our expectations.

I feel sorry for game companies releasing FPS's after this game not based on this engine. They're going look primitive by comparison. It will be interesting to compare HL2, if it is ever released...

manslauter, that last screen you posted i pointed out. me and majic came to the conclusion it's a robotic drone (rather, he suggested it and i agreed).

the two headed thing, i dont know. the second pic in your first post is that thing that floats around. forget what its called. the last one is the commando.
