4. Re: Tired of Interviews that say nothing Sep 2, 2003, 11:36 Morgan19
 
Granted, there wasn't a whole lot of new info in the interview, but after reading it it looks like there are only a couple questions where he straight-out said "I can't comment on that yet." And even those had other info padded around the N/As. He commented on aspects of both weapons and vehicles (like characteristics, number of new ones, etc.) so I'm not really sure what it is you're expecting to hear...?

As for release date, it's pretty common knowledge that the game is at least more than a year away, if I remember correctly. How do you expect them to get an exact date that far? And even so, with the way most gamers react to release dates these days, I wouldn't want to give a concrete date out and then be torn to bits by "fans" when I missed it by anything over an hour either! I don't see how that's a problem.

That was FUN!!!!

The red puzzle is the room with the alligator and shark that you fall into. I didn't notice the first time because I was too busy trying not to get eaten.

As for Ben's age, just pick a number to start out with Dan and work the rest out, going Dan > Ben > Mike > Dan. For example, I started with 20 for Dan (far right), so that makes Ben 10 (10 years younger) and Mike 5 (5 younger than Ben). But since Dan has to be twice as old as Mike, that doesn't work. So keep trying a number with Dan and working through it til you get the right one. Not hard at all. (Hint: Try ages in multiples of ten. 10, 20, 30, 40, etc.)

I take it no one has an answer to my previous point, so we're all going to ignore it and its implications?

Oh, sorry. Mmm... I wish the edit button worked too?

What I think's going to be really funny after all this hoopla is the inevitable "this demo sucks!!" or "I hope the retail's better than this POS!" posts that'll soon follow.

Payment = payment (money), services, trades, goods, or whatever form of compensation you'd want to include apart form something being given for free.

Is this something you know for a fact? If so, may I ask how?

Oh please, you're a grown man, you know how business works and are better than that to imagine otherwise.

Let me ask you, then. If they didn't have to pay to get exclusive content, where does that place you? This whole thing would then basically be you and the other sites crying that some other site is getting better stuff. But if they can do it for "free," as you're asking, why can't you? If someone else is doing better because of any reason besides payment for the content, would it always be your practice to then complain and try and knock them back down?

More food for thought.

Oh yes Rictor, poor you, you fight the man by stealing things. Please.

Do you think it is right to profit from something to basic?

And since when was a game demo something necessary for survival or, as you put it, basic? It's a luxury item, a commodity, a material possession, an item that makes your life prettier and, if you believe it to be so, more fulfilled. Nothing more. Comparing an absolutely critical sustenance for life like air to a GAME DEMO of all things is ludicrious! It's a thin argument.

Curse not editing... To clarify, come up with a real-world example where someone was given exclusive rights to something without having to give anything in return. It's an incredibly unrealistic situation, so I'm curious what you're thinking of.

Would you feel the same way about this if FilePlanet was not paying anything for the right to premier this demo exclusively?

Give an example of something like that actually happening (I can't think of any off the top of my head), and then I'll think about that. Honestly, that's hardly likely to happen, so that situation doesn't hold much water. They *do* pay for it, so that's not debatable.

Demos are by defeinition free and who gives these people the right to profit from something that is supposed to be free.

Ehh? Where is it defined that demos are "free?" You might THINK they're free because that's been a norm for a while, but in now way is anything created by blood, sweat, and tears (to use a good ol' phrase) ever free because you demand it to be so. The company that makes a game (or anything else, for that matter) has every right to say what happens to that product. Delusions of things "having" to be free shows nothing but ignorance and a demanding attitude. If they want to charge for it or give it to someone else who charges for it, that's their perogative. And if it makes them lose business, that's no one's concern but theirs. Sorry, but your logic here is tainted by getting a little too comfy with highspeed Internet and instant gratification where things are delivered in an instant. Don't forget that all these "free" demos you're demanding still have production schedules, employees who need to be paid, and whatnot. You think they just come out of thin air? Get real.

ok i don't buy their fuckin games anymore

That's tossed around so much now that it hardly means anything. Actually do that, and I'd be surprised. Until then it's just words.

Why is it okay for FilePlanet to grab an exclusive deal that hurts their competitors but it's not okay for their competitors to not offer the demo?

Mmm... Because they paid for it? $s awfully powerful, whether you like it or not.

No kidding? (Not to go off-topic, but...) When did that happen? So is it across the board, not just this one? I must've missed the excitement that made that happen.

Valve tends not to release pre-retail demos anyway, so that doesn't really count...

Interesting... Why has editing been disabled? Blue, if you did that on purpose, isn't it slightly ironic? You want free release of demos, but people can't be free to change what they say?

make it exclusive for a week

That's exactly why I have to disagree with Blue and everyone else who thinks this is a plausible argument. Your own example is great: it's a WEEK. Seven days. A single week. Is it really worth getting worked up over all this when all you have to do is go find something else to do for that short of a time?

Yes, granted it might be a longer period, but so what? There's other things to life than a ridiculous demo, a teeny tiny portion of a full game.

As for the "but then every game site's going to become pay," no, they won't. That's a ridiculous notion that I'm pretty darn sure will never come to pass. Look at porn: 99% of the stuff you'd find online you have to pay for, but there are ALWAYS free places.

I said it before, and again: You guys need some patience and other interests, and learn to pick your battles. This isn't even remotely worth getting up in arms about. (Though it is making for an interesting thread. :))

You think EVERY game site on the Internet is going to go the pay route? I highly doubt that.
