UT2003 Demo Update

A post to the Infogrames Forums (thanks Alex Judge and Unreality) by Epic's CliffyB offers an update on the UT2003 demo, which he promises will be "not much longer" (not that we haven't heard that before, so an accompanying grain of salt is recommended). According to the update, the reworked menus are being ironed out, the server browser is almost finished, and they are focusing on testing the maps that are shipping with the demo. He goes on to outline some details about the four maps to be included, and concludes by adding: "One thing that I'm excited about with the new UT - all of the gametypes will be very fun and viable online. Assault and the original Domination, as much as I love them, had some issues that prevented them from reaching their full potential online. Dom 2.0 and Bombing Run are right up there with CTF and other gametypes!" Attempting to stave off the inevitable effort folks put into misinterpreting such things while hedging on the definition of 'not much longer,' a follow-up post from Cliff reminds us: "I did NOT promise a date. We could be more than 2 weeks away still."

A bunch of hype and no product.

I laugh everytime I hear "news" about UT2003 because it's always the same. "This is the best game ever, and it's all most done even!"

I don't want a buggy product either, but I think .plan, interviews, etc. should all be on hold till they can ship a product. Put your money where your mouth is, turn off the hype machine and code something.

I can't help thinking of DNF everytime I see something about UT2003.
