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.

But no one's MAKING you pay anything, so you don't have to if you don't want to.

Exactly, it's all about practicing patience and/or self-discipline. So you can't have something "right now" along with everyone else? Wait, and you'll get it. How is this so hard?

36. Eh. Aug 28, 2003, 19:13 Morgan19
 
The only stance I have on it after briefly reading the post and some of the replies on this page is: so what? All this hoopla is over *demos*? Wait a bit (days, weeks, months, whatever) and then you, your neighbor, and everyone else can try it out. If it's literally exclusive and will never be released to any but one site, how does that affect any of you guys? So you won't buy the game... It's only hurting the people making it. In the end, all we're taking about are demos, not the final retail product. If you're so concerned with how it plays, that's what review are for. I'm sorry, but all this just seems like a whole lot of impatience and fist-pounding for no really good reason.

19. Re: BEST LOGO EVAR! Aug 28, 2003, 13:22 Morgan19
 
Eh...? It's not any different from most of the other logos... Someone/thing popping out of the predefined logo space on the left, and the rest a blur. I'd actually rate it as one of the worst (like last week's) simply because it obliterates the site name, for an effect that isn't all that great in the first place.

This OotB sounds awfully familiar... I knew how it was going to end (about "they're trying to get me") a few words into the first sentence... Wasn't there another "spider conspiracy" OotB last year, worded almost exactly the same? o_O

But seriously, I think back to playing Dragon Warrior on the NES, the first few Wizardry's, or Might & Magic 1 and am just floored at how people can look at these shots and called them ho-hum. I would've had a giggle attack as a ten-year-old back then being able to run around realistic looking forests like in the shots.

I shake my head in disbelief at the people calling those screenies "unappealing" or "crappy." How jaded are you people?

Hey Blue, do you think it's time to implement some sort of "sigs can't be more than X lines" rule? That down there's just plain obnoxious.

The post somewhere below about "only sites selling things make money" got me thinking. Doesn't Blue's already sell tshirts? What about coffee mugs, stickers, posters, other types of clothing like hats or hoodies, heck even slinkies with the BN logo on them? Might be worth looking into, dunno.

(EDIT-) Look like Alex beat me to it. Well, that's two people that think it's a good idea.

Not true! My grandparents, who live in central Michigan, owned a White's metal detector store for decades and always had tons of historical artifacts they'd found to sell at the shop. Bullets, coins, medals, all sorts of stuff. It's not a waste of time, you just have to know where to look.

4. Re: can't remove patch Jul 24, 2003, 00:06 Morgan19
 
I'm just patiently waiting for the day MS screws up big time and releases a patch that makes every computer not boot..oops, sorry, can't remove it...gotta FFR.

Or you could use said patience, wait a few days or weeks until people are sure the patch is safe, and then install it. That way you don't have to reformat or make stale MS jokes!

Yeah, a company trying to make money and survive sure does deserve to go under.

5. Re: A sad, sad day Jul 18, 2003, 14:02 Morgan19
 
Wow, this is sad. Although I seem to be in the minority, I enjoyed each and every one of the "regular" Might & Magics, all the way from M&M1 to M&M9. Yep I liked the later M&M's, even 9. It was fun! Maybe a little skewed at the beginning and ends power-wise, but fun nonetheless. Could the later games have been better? Sure, but what couldn't stand some improvement? I still enjoyed them.

Some of my best computer gaming memories from when I was a little kid stem from the original M&M. Humor me this trip down gaming memory lane, but there were a lot of fond memories spent with that game. I'm sure I'm spelling some names wrong or getting them completely wrong:

Sorpigal, Erlequin, Algary, Dusk, Castle Doom, Castle Wolf, the Astral Plane, the Inner Sactum, sending your score in to New World and getting a certificate back, the Gates to Another World ("Why won't it let me go through?!"), statues, Ice Queen, all the various keys, the purple and yellow walls with an invisible passage, the alien that sold goods in the desert oasis, the Ruby Whistle, fighting the red dragons for a tooth, trying to figure out what "beladonna" was, clubs, Crag the Hack, gathering your characters at the Inn and the little asterick, creating characters in the first place, the first strategy guide I ever bought (and a damn good one!), food, gems for casting spells, the gold & silver messages, the fantastic art on the map and cover, Etherialize (and ending up in a wall), the gaming consequences of having male or female characters, the age of your characters, the Wheel of Luck, the impossibly hard "compass" monsters at the 4 corners of the map, the map coordinates like A1, B3, etc., the chess puzzle, King Alamar, the lords in the castles, Blackridge North and South. And that's all I can think of off the top of my head. "All."

I still get a "oh crap" feeling when I think of the little tune that played when one of your characters died ('ba da doo DA doooooo') or your whole party was wiped out.

I haven't read the news, but it looks like the series are still going to continue, just elsewhere? It'd be a shame to never see another M&M game again. Although I couldn't care less about HoMM (never got into it), I was looking forward to seeing what a M&M X would be like.

Blue's News is #1, and I'm not just brown-nosing. This is the only game site I visit any more, FilePlanet be damned. About the only other time I'd visit other sites for news is when I do want to try a demo or something, and even then there are always plenty of free sites.

Edit- Had to add "FilePlanet be damned."
