Half-Life 2/Doom 3 Tech Comparison

This article talks about which tech is "better", Half-Life 2's Source engine or Doom 3's Engine. It compares and contrasts. While both games are quite impressive in their own right, one is clearly superior to the other. When taking all factors of graphic fidelity, engine optimization, and overall scale into consideration, Source is just head and shoulders above Doom 3.

Valve seems to suffer from their own popularity

It's my personal jihad now to get Doom 3 to run under Linux.. (yay WineX!) While hanging out in #cedega on freenode's irc network, tryna get the free version of WineX CVS to install.. I discovered something really funny.. People have been bombarding poor channel #cedega with questions and complaints about how to get Doom 3, and what looks like sierra's online game deployment system i've just only heard about called Steam.. uh.. and apparently some people have had some less than easy time with it.. hehe

Ant's Brief Review on DOOM 3 & Tips...

Today, I finally bought DOOM 3 after pricematching Fry's Electronics $43.99 price with Electronic Boutique. Oh and I sold old Quake 3 Arena for measley two bucks. I was really worried that this game wouldn't run on my aging Athlon 2200+ XP gaming box. I was totally wrong, and very surprised.
