do you think Romero would be hired if he applied? I hear he is still looking for employment to make a sequel about a game that involves a samurai sword...

" It probably doesn't have an uninstall option either. "
HAHA! Too funny.

As for the shelf time from gold time... I know a few weeks is a *long* time but I am sure companies/publishers have been trying to shorten this time for years. Supply Chain Management is serious business... minimizing distribution paths is a difficult science... if there was a way to make this shorter, I am sure they would have found it by now.

An alternative method is to do away with the publisher, set up a big FTP site (or let the Fileplanet/Shacknews whores host the game), set up a pay cart system and have people download directly from the Net.

Alas, this business model has been tried and has failed... it would be sweet though.. because Gold would equal Distribution.

We would be playing Unreal 2 right now if this were the current method of distribution. Think about it, the gamers get the game 3 weeks earlier, they pay less since there are significantly less "publisher costs" and www.gheyplanet.com and www.whoreshack.com get the downloads they want... everyone wins!

Althought the publishers wouldn't be too happy about it.

Unfortunately, the internet isn't ready for this distribution model yet... maybe in 10 more years... it has been tried numerous times before the Dot Bomb era and failed... only time will tell...

According to the FAQ on the Unreal 2 Forum, there will be no demo:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHEN WILL THE DEMO BE OUT???
currently...it is that there will be no demo. If there is one, it'll probably be after the release of the game, not before. Now, enough with the demo threads.

Rigs,

please don't get me mixed up with Dr. Del Patel... he is the one who needs all the crash courses he can get. simply click on his name and read his old posts to see what kind of a person he is.

But please don't mix us up, we are different people (thankfully)

EDIT: looks like most of his posts have been banned/deleted by The Blue One, just to show you what kind of idiocy he spreads.

7. hmm.. Dec 19, 2002, 01:57 Dr.Del
 
...I have heard the hype about this game for eons, have had friends with Xbox's who think this game is Da Bomb, and now that I have downloaded it, I really don't see what the hype is all about.

maybe all the hype has ruined it for me? raised my expectations too high?

I got so bored I barely made it past the first 3 minutes... it seems to be another TPS to me...

my 2 cents.

FarmerBob, such hostility...

thank you for the lesson in gaming... since I am such an newbie and don't recall Half-Life, even though I was one of the 2D artists employed for such titles as Space Ace and Dragon's Lair many moons ago, I am ever so thankful for you setting me straight.

News Comments > Turbine & Middle Earth Online?
3. Re: Hrmm... Dec 5, 2002, 15:03 Dr.Del
 
Asylumn, what verification did you use?

I tried calling Turbine to ask them myself, the main switchboard operator wasn't quite sure who Tolkien was, I think she thought I was referring to some secret organization or something. Then when I mentioned "War on Middle Earth" she stated she was going to call Homeland Security on me and promptly hung up.

I guess I just don't have the inside connections that you do.

yeah I remember War in Middle Earth from my Commodore days.

great game indeed.. somehow though, I think the "magic" in video games from yesteryear don't seem to translate to success in today's market.

Speaking of Medieval Total War, I just got it today... I am installing it now.. I love RTS's which is why I think this Tolkien RTS will r0xx0r.
