Must be one heck of an easy game to make. They list a March 2003 release date!!!

Today would be the day that they ship them prior to the release date, tomorrow.


With few exceptions, games don't have street dates like DVD movies. Once they get to the stores, they get sold right away. Thats's one reason that smaller stores that just sell games tend to have them on the shelves first. A huge store like a Best Buy is going to have a pallet of games stuck in a trailer along with all kinds of electronics and other stuff. Depending on how much they care about getting the job done, that stuff can sit on a loading dock for days.

35. Re: Mark's quote is gone Feb 11, 2003, 18:21 Raven
 
Like several others have pointed out, I fail to see the "quote" from Mark Rein anywhere. Did it get pulled from the article, or did Blue pull it from somewhere else?


Edit: Just wanted to make clear that I was asking where the source was. Thanks for clarify that. I did not intend to imply that it was a made-up quote.

I find it mildly amusing that a 31 year old college graduate is making less money as a graphics designer than a 16 year kid can make at Home Depot.

I must admit that being a graphics designer must be a heck of a lot more fun that hauling lumber...

#14, are you being serious, and saying that it would take away sales from Raven Shield and Splinter Cell?

Or are you be sarcastic, and saying that such a title does not deserve to be physically close to good titles?

I love it how games that came out last week are referred to as "upcoming" on news sites. Progress on the game? It's done!

Oh well, it's not like I could do any better.

Actually, #5, I am not caucasian. Does my statement stereotype me as such?

ps: I'm glad that you love being right.

That will be one patch I don't download.

Racism is bad, but I don't think that changing this game will affect anything in a positive manner.

I didn't think that any judges talked like that, except for the ones that compete with Jerry Springer for airtime.

Actually, you should see the list of errata on the official Dungeons and Dragons web page for the 3E sourcebooks. There are quite a lot of errors.

Retail stores get a heck of a lot less than 50% of the sticker price on games.

20%-30% is common, and that's before they pay for shipping, rent, the salesperson behind the counter, etc...

I wouldn't really call "Read the manual" a hints and tips section.

I think that Blue should scan the sonogram and make it the picture of the day.

Don't you love it when even the publisher doesn't know that their game is already in stores?

I like the voice commands. Who needs to know how to fire weapons when you can just say it?

Actually, it used to say 134 years, before Blue corrected it. It said it yesterday too.

If it never said that, the grandkids line would make no sense at all, which it doesn't now.
