Fine by me... I've happily used Yahoo! mail since 1997 and have absolutely no desire for it to turn into Hotmail. Blegh.

18. Re: More clarification on load times.... Dec 20, 2007, 18:19 Morgan19
 
By load times, does that mean "loading a saved game" or "loading between areas"?

I'm not going to let any load times make or break a game for me. It's always something.

Normally I'd agree... But when literally 50% of your time "playing" a game is spent staring at a loading screen, that's a little nuts. From what I hear, what's worse is that there are the long loading screens for everything, including entering or leaving a simple interior space. Now that's just silly.

Regardless, I'm going to try the demo so I can see for myself.

I'd be all over this game, if it wasn't for the hideous loading times every review mentions.

Malware, not mailware. The prefix mal- from the Latin malus, mala, malum; a 1st/2nd declension adjective meaning bad, evil wicked. Hence malware is bad software. In Gamespy's case, it's bad presumably because it's slow, requires registration, and supports the evil empire, i.e. IGN/Gamespy.

Try again. Malware means the program is designed to specifically harm, injure, disrupt or otherwise screw up your system. It doesn't mean "bad software"...

Wii = overrated

Not at all. If you're a hardcore solitary "don't bug me" gamer than sure, it might not be great. But for families, or groups of people who want to play together, or a couple like me and my wife, the Wii is fantastic because whoever's involved can both easily and painlessly enjoy some videogaming at a more common-denominator. Sure, it may be a bit more "everyone-friendly" than a lot of gamers are used to, but like it or not the playable-by-all factor is hard to say about any other system.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but there's still no way to cancel out of joining a server once you start, apart from alt-tabbing out the game and restarting, is there? That needs to be remedied ASAP.

I could see people suspecting cheating beacuse of the "bad guy here" targeting cursor and the game's ability to shoot through walls, but I haven't seen anything blatant in the past few weeks of playing.

Oh it's compatible, alright-- except now after the patch, my mouse's X- and Y-axes don't work at all. The mouse buttons themselves work great, but moving it doesn't do a thing, and I don't see any new options for getting it back.

Whee!

Does anyone know if this patch is like 2142, for example, where the servers you play on have to match your version? I'm just wondering how it being "beta" would affect online playability.

...What's unique? ...What's different? How is this any different than any other game? ...What's DIFFERENT? What's so special? What's so unique that some guy says that this game will be on his harddrive way after everything else fades? What's so compelling that some guy says "best game in years"? ...BUT WHAT IS SO DIFFERENT? ...What's DIFFERENT????

Simple: the experience.

I felt like an actual soldier playing through the SP game, and I feel like an actual soldier playing MP. Contrary to what you seem to think, a game doesn't have to introduce some radical new idea or have totally new weapon ideas to be good. It's one of the best gaming experiences I've had the joy of taking part in, plain and simple.

Yep, finally found one in the area that got a shipment in today-- it sounds like shipments all over this region came in a day late, for whatever reason.

I had to turn off bloom and the distance fuzz before they drove me batty, but now it feels like good ol' UT again. Looking forward to getting some play time in.

Just curious, but where'd you buy it from? I wasn't able to find a single store out of a half-dozen that had it in stock this evening.

So has anyone actually found a store selling UT3 yet...?

I checked my local Target, WalMart, Best Buy, Circuit City, and EBgames and not one of them have the game in stock. There's shelf space for it, but no one seems to have actually gotten their shipment yet. Bizarre.

I actually had a borderline-normal post asking where people were getting it today from. Does that count?

Bwah? "Now available", as in today? I know a couple stores listed today as the release date and most have tomorrow, but I'd be curious to see where people buy it today, if it is possible.

News Comments > UT3 UI Fixes Planned
19. Re: um.. Nov 15, 2007, 10:37 Morgan19
 
For me the ESC menus were worse than the nice tabbed/sectioned ones from past games (UT2k4, I think?), but you know what? I don't plan on playing the UI. I'm going to play the game.

Apart from going in to set up settings and controls the first time, the only other thing I need is the MP browser– which worked fine for me in the demo. So... If they make updates to it, fantastic. If not, not a big deal to me.

I just noticed that UT3 has been pushed back a week to the 23rd Nov. I didn't hear anything about it but when I checked all the sites today they all reported the same thing.

Everywhere I've checked still says Tuesday– are you sure you're not just looking at a Black Friday ad or something?
