The feed content has no formatting. For example:

"Ouya to bolster launch games with NES, SNES, N64 emulation. Blacklight: Retribution, Primal Carnage: Genesis coming to PS4. Fez on Wii U unlikely. First rain Gameplay footage. Coming soon to the..."

Itís difficult to parse the separate news items. Could it please be fixed to use bullet points, and not cut short, like thisÖ

  • Ouya to bolster launch games with NES, SNES, N64 emulation.
  • Blacklight: Retribution, Primal Carnage: Genesis coming to PS4.
  • Fez on Wii U unlikely.
  • First rain Gameplay footage.
  • Coming soon to the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
  • Xbox Live's Major Nelson Ľ PAX East 2013 Show.

    They donít have to be links, Iíd just like to be able to read the feed better. Thanks.

    You got me excited there, and then I clicked through and discovered it's only on Microsoft's Windows platform.

    There isn't really any difference between a [open] beta and a demo these days.

    Which is a shame, because I'm reluctant to buy any game that I don't already know I'm going to enjoy, and they complain about piracy on the PC!

    Moral of the story: don't buy games without trying a demo first.
    I hated the demo. Barely playable due to lag and poor optimization (it even had a bug that made your microphone always transmit when you were in the session lobby).
    But then a friend of mine bought the game anyway, and it turned out the release version ran so much smoother than the half-assed demo, and I ended up buying it myself, and I don't regret it.

    Then it wasn't really a 'demo'nstration of the final product. IE., a beta rather than an actual demo.

    1. IRL, sand isn't shiny.
    2. IRL, not all shadows, in fact most shadows, aren't sharp, especially outdoors.
    3. IRL, we have these things called 'curves'.

    1. A Joke? May 19, 2008, 17:08 Vigil
     
    "A new Euro Truck Simulator offers gameplay footage of driving a truck, depicting the real-life truck driver challenges the game will offer such as staying in ones lane, and attempting to remain conscious."

    I thought that was some kind of joke, but then I watched the video, and it isn't!

    That new blood looks ridiculous, completely spoils the realism. The old blood looks much better, by comparison.

    10. Levels Dec 1, 2007, 07:47 Vigil
     
    To the guys complaining about the levels in UT3, you need to bear in mind that the game has only just been released. You might want to wait a little while for the community at large to release better levels, or indeed Epic to release a bonus map pack or two, before writing off this game. I think Epic understand that the game's laurels won't lie solely on the levels that they made for it, but on the community's contribution, too.

    "I think a lot of the comparisons on the market today simply compare screenshots, frankly it's rather meaningless, a lot of the improvements can be seen when things are moving."

    Then we need to see some movie comparisons instead of just screenshots.

    39. In-game Server Browsers Oct 31, 2007, 18:02 Vigil
     
    Do people even use this feature any more? I would have thought everyone would be using standalone browsers that handle multiple games, like Qtracker or Kali. Who uses the in-game browser? I guess if you just played one game and one game alone, you'd use its browser, but if you have more than one, why are you using the in-game ones?

    6. My Experience Oct 13, 2007, 16:37 Vigil
     
    Menu items that change position when you mouse closer to them are a bad thing. For example, I see the Settings button at position x on the screen but as I go to click it it moves to position y. WTF?

    Bringing up the console when pressing the @ key is a bit of a showstopper as well. Why does it NEED an email address, anyway?

    I didn't actually get to play it because, after restarting after changing the video settings to max, the thing loaded the map but froze a split second into it, the screen went black and returned me to the MSWin desktop.

    I have decided to give up on this and wait for the non-beta demo.

    PS. Apparently Jolt have a dedicated server: http://www.ut2004.jolt.co.uk/index.php?page=&action=show&id=15509

    The video doesn't appear to show any actual in-game facials...

    BTW, it's a .exe file, so you can only see it if you can execute these files.

    Appears they have sold out. Whereever I try to enter their site, I get a big advertisement page (with just a big white square where the ad is meant to go, thanks to my ad filter), and the "Continue to 3dgamers.com" link is just a javascript reload.
