Yes, I must agree. The enjoyment of a game like this completely evades me. I can see perhaps some minor enjoyment out of it for the hack and slash mentality except for the completely annoying camera angles. Blegh.

"Say what? ASPs other attempts to move the computing world towards thin clients have failed miserably every single time they have been tried, while distributed and peer-oriented technologies have racked up success after resounding success."

The discussion here has nothing to do with thin clients, it has to do with content delivery technology... and I know firsthand it does not fail miserably everyday.

"This is a technology that must NOT happen."

Of course it is. The constant chore of a software company to maintain and support multiple versions and offer installation solutions for those version can be quite a headache... along with the difficulty of getting updated versions of software to non-computer-literate users.

"Speaking as an engineer, I do not understand how anybody can seriously advocate inserting more components between the locus of control and the locus of response."

Uh... are you sure you're not an IT admin? Because 1 is more constant than the other.

Steam doesn't improve user experience 'yet'. The idea of Steam is not new. Content delivery technology similar to this is all over the net with ASPs and java apps, etc. And this is a technology that must happen. Of course saying that is not going to change anything here. But in a few months when the issues are ironed out and everyone's playing HL games without hardly a thought of Steam (except for the inevitable urge for enhancements)... well, there it will be.

Sadly, I think the best part of this IS the music.

Yes. You are correct. That is another way of looking at it.

Thanks. Your "downloading" will help promote overpriced games.

10-4 on the price. Hopefully more and more people will begin waiting for these prices to drop... and just maybe they'll lower the prices by default. I won't hold my breath though. There are reasons that EA is successful, even though they're scum.

Sounds like a pretty fun gogo while I wait for Unreal T 2004. Guess I'll actually have to reinstall that thing again.

Ok. I got one more beef. When I got to the end and the cap'n was doing his little speech, I decided to shoot all my friendlies for the heck of it. As I knocked each one down, the guy just kept on giving the speech. Good lord.

oh.. and it doesn't support my mouse buttons 4 and 5. Come'on. Go prone: mouse button 5. Please guys.

"Well it wasn't Britney kissing Madonna good... but it is certainly good. I would agree the AI needs some work quick. Way to often I had enemies 10 feet from staring at me as I shot'em. But it did bring back good memories of playing through MOH:AA the first time. Grenades are fun."

This inability to edit stinks. Anyway, I do want to point out that the game did lock up on me half way through. I had to restart my computer, then finished. Hopefully that'll be cleaned up as well.

Seeing that this game was at QuakeCon, I would guess that it uses the Quake 3 engine.
