Most publishers have agreements like this, what's the big deal?

Doom 3 blows. If they would have released a demo before the ship date it's sales would have been much lower.

17. Plan Sep 11, 2004, 09:33 Ralphus
 
Why not just buy the monthly subscription service for one month to get the game earlier than everyone else, and then when the month is up go get the hard copy.

If it'll work that's my plan.

Question is: how much cheaper will it be on Steam?

"just think about it..
- no packaging
- no color cover
- no printed manual
- no shipping around the world
- no retailer profits
- no CDs
- no copy protection
- and full control about piracy "


Yes, I'm sure the years of developing Steam were free.

They said most of the sounds and textures that wouldn't be changing before release were going to preload. What's the big deal?

Keep in mind, if you want play the game at a different location, your account still works fine. If you want to sell the game, just remove it from your steam or create a default login for the buyer.

People just hate Steam because they don't understand it. It's a great thing for developers, and yes more should use this type of system.

Having to use Steam for single player is a great idea, the issue being piracy.

Having a LAN center pay for each copy is a good idea, just like licensing since they are making money. This can be done with the month to month system.


You probably think I'm a developer or something, but in all honesty, most people I know *cough* have not paid for a single player game in YEARS, and something should really be done about it. However, if more developers do go to a steam type system, THEY NEED to release demos before the full comes out!!!

yawn... I'm maybe 4 hours into the game and it's boring the shit out of me now...

Running around in the dark, looking for PDA's and hidden ladders is such innovative gameplay!!!

I'm a long time instagibber, I even remember [LM]Wowbagger down there from UT instagib. Anyway, UT2K3, while I did play it some, sucked big time compared to UT. I think they should take all the time they need and make a real farking sequel.

Anyway, FragOps will be out tomorrow, and the trailer looked pretty nice IMO. http://www.frag-ops.com

I played MOHAA a long time ago, what's so great about this? It brings nothing new to the table, and I don't really see anything it does particularly well.

MOHAA with special effects and more scripting... oohhh.

If I put my monitor at 60hz it's hard to look at. I know people think that your eye can only see up to 60fps, but recent studies show that the eye can detect framerate differences well into the hundreds. So all I have to say to Carmack is....

CAP THIS!]r

I'm actually looking forward to this one, so that means something will happen and it won't come out for a very long time.

Gabe stated that the e3 stuff was scripted, but the actual game would not be aside from certain thing having to happen.

Also, you really think the whole game after 5 years of development were these little segments for e3? This is not the full game, maybe this is all the hacker could get to.

Why are so many people believing what this guy is spouting.

I really do think that what was released as beta is just an E3 build, or something compiled with some of the resources.

There is no way this is all VALVe had. You'd have to be a dumbass to think that....

"Re: Enough with the fat jokes. Oct 2, 09:57 Jerebus

Are you immature assholes making personal attacks about the man's appearance just lashing out because you 'want your game NOW!!(WAH!!)' or does it actually make you feel better about your own miserable lives (and physical condition) to make fun of the fat dude? I'm guessing it's more of the latter.
pathetic.
I'm sure you are all sexy Brad Pitt looking studs, yeah, that's probably what people who obsessively post to gaming message boards look like...grow up."


STFU FATASS!

What transpired on Oct 5 2003:

Sorry guys I wasn't able to update last night. If you were in the IRC channel you understood why, anyways I had a phone call last night from someone who is good friends with a lot of the people at VALVe, but dislikes Gabe. He was telling me some quite shocking information... :-(. All I have to say is even though the source code is out, and even though the beta will most likely be released, please buy the game when it comes out. I never usually stress this kind of thing with a game cause I'm not really entirely against warez (because the game companies usually still make a ton of money regardless if I buy the product or not), but if we don't all go buy that game it could mean the difference between functional VALVe or no VALVe. You all don't realize how bad the situation actually is. They are also going to have to deal with like 6 lawsuits when this is all over as well.. I'm sure if they get sued they will counter sue Microsoft though. Blah, I'm scared that Halflife2 might have been canceled (doubtful, but possible). So if the beta comes out, don't spread it, it will be shitty anyways, GAME BETAS ARE ALWAYS FUCKING SHITTY. Just wait till this Christmas and buy the fucking game. Anyone who spreads the beta will have any information we can find about you on this site and the whole community will remember you as the ones who killed VALVe.

Also, this image here is fake: here.

Well, it's already started, people are playing on the source code. Of course it's caveman style running around a room with shitty textures, but I guess people have already figured it out.

Guess we'll be seeing some underground games pretty soon..
