Medal of Honor Official SP Demo

After all the upheaval over the inadvertedly distributed cover-disk version and its subsequent withdrawal (on which topic Leaked game demo sparks online debate on CNNmoney offers a round-up of the events, including quotes from our very own Blue), it may come as a surprise that earlier than announced, Electronic Arts has now decided to release the official single-player demo of Medal of Honor: Allied Assault for download from FilePlanet (registration required). This whopping 175.2 MB version features a regular installer that unfortunately includes DirectX 8, but that otherwise offers the same Nebelwerfer Hunt level in 2015's imminent WWII first-person shooter as before. Update: Here is a local copy with mirrors.

As I understand it loony *got* paid. However, there came a time when Blue wasn't able to continue paying him a reasonable salary anymore. So loony decided to take the job at Shacknews...
That's about right, although it's a part-time gig, and Jason found a full-time day job in Manhattan soon after... he's doing fine now.

There are two issues with this call for more "content." One is crossing the fine line between reporting on news and generating it - a journalistic no-no as someone in the other MoH demo thread pointed out so viciously. We consider mirroring (or occasionally even premiering) demos and patches, or posting screenshots, more of a service than generating content, but doing previews, dairies, interviews and what have you is a different ball-park.

The other is time. As someone here already observed, we're working pretty crazy hours between the two of us. Apart from keeping up with mailed-in news and tracking down new stories ourselves, Blue needs to attend to the business side of the site, and I attend to 3D Gamers. During the week, neither of us has time to play games to any extent, so taking press builds for a spin and writing a good preview on them, or preparing an in-depth interview, just isn't feasible. And during the weekend we'd like to take it a bit easier just like the rest of the world, too.

So while we have in the past considered doing more "content," it remains something that doesn't very much appeal to us.

However, what we would like to work on is offering more services. We have a .plan tracker, a press release archive, local file downloads and a LAN Party system, so there's definitely room for expansion there. The Mailbag (more of a community service than content, anyway) is indeed regrettable sporadic since Jason's departure. Similarly, he was working on a Links database which got shelved at that time. We're handicapped by a lack of programming capacity (my Perl/CGI skils are rudimentary, and Steve's are absent ;P) but I'd still like to pose this question:

Do you have a suggestion for a worthwhile service to add to the site?

And, it doesn't go without saying, thanks for the kind words and support many have expressed here.
