Anyone have any alternate download sites?

On second thought, I simply updated the story so the mirrors are also visible for folks that don't check the comments.

2. Re: Only previews at corporate sites Jul 28, 2001, 18:25  Frans 
 
Maybe you're missing the point. Please read our FAQ:
http://www.bluesnews.com/faqs/bluefaq.shtml

Under "Why didn't you print that thing I sent you?" it lists:
Your preview was hands-off and contained no new screenshots, or it was based on a publicly released demo.

The point is that such previews contribute no new textual or visual information about an upcoming game, and are usually based on other previews or the official site(s). We feel that such previews are thus of little or no news value, so we skip them.

Previews on 'corporate sites' usually contain hands-on experiences, quotes from the developers and new screenshots, because they do have access to this kind of information for the very reason that they are established sites. That's just the way the gaming industry works these days.

So while there are always exceptions both ways, we tend to report more on these kinds of previews than those at smaller sites, as the only criterion is the article's news value, however commendable the effort that any site puts in their articles.

It's not been released in the US yet, and since we're a US site first, and international second (yes, not even my presence here can change that ;)), previews of upcoming US games are still considered newsworthy.

Yes, as mentioned on the site.

I am not aware of any objections to sharing the Xiaoxiao flash, we only removed the link because their server got fried.

7. Re: definitely worth the download Jul 22, 2001, 20:52  Frans 
 
You can download a FREE patch to the original AvP which makes it the same as AvP Gold

Oh? Where?

For reference purposes, the files released for AvP and AvP Gold that I'm aware of are listed here:
http://www.3dgamers.com/games/alienspredator/
and there's no patch to upgrade the original game to the Gold one, as far as I know. Any URL contradicting that is appreciated.

I'm going to start a website called bluesnew.com

Too late, it already exists (and it's completely unrelated to this here site )

There is one possible exception though; I thought the demo for The Fallen was pretty interesting

Yup, and I pointed that out to Loony after I played it late last year, but I guess he needed more convincing. Why else would he bring up the topic again half a year later?

I thought JA2 sold really well?! (at least in Europe??)

Read the press release, it explains why that didn't help them: "...failure to receive royalties due from the European publishers..."

On another note, Blues News seems to be much slower loading lately than it has been in the past. New host?

No changes were made or are planned for the server or our connection - and for me the site loads just as speedy as always (well, since we got this new board, anyway)

By the way, the article seems to have been written by someone in the UK.

Uhm yeah, that's to be expected. CVG is a UK site.

Actually, the news story originally contained the wrong links to the site's frontpage, rather directly to the English and German versions of the interview. I fixed it now.

The server file seems to be misnamed on blue's.

Use hlds40164017.exe instead of hlds41064106.exe
Unconfirmed and probably fixed by the time you read this

Oops, a typo in the link on that page, that file itself is properly named. Thanks.

I just forget my password, and don't really see the point of trying to figure it out. I would just have to remember it

You can use the system to look it up:

and if you have cookies turned on in your browser, it will remember it for you after the first time you log in.

Actually, it looks like the download size weighs in at around 91.6 MB.

Nope, it's 91,558,918 bytes which equals 87.3 MB.
