Personally, I hope 3DGamers will around for awhile.
Thanks, we aim to be around for a long time.

It will be unfortunate if the fileplanet/gamespy "pay for demos" business model is the one that prevails ultimately.

Personally, I hope 3DGamers will around for awhile.

Funny how quality games still made money in the past, even when the demos of those games were mirrored across many sites.

They release a version specifically for stress-test purposes, and then LIMIT its distribution??! That's just daft.

3dgamers can't mirror it, because Lamespy has a 3 week exclusive on it?
LOL! No thanks. I'll pass.

Hmmm....I dont know....most people I saw who played the singplayer demo seemed to like it. Hardest thing will be getting people to give it a chance.

The Single Player Demo on the PCGamer Holiday edition for Impossible Creatures is 277MB. That download is worth the download... if PCGamer didn't squash our release of it.

It'll be interesting to see how many people download a 250MB file for a game like this. I just don't get the sense many people care about it, even though I do like some of the concepts within it. It's not like it's C&C: Generals or Warcraft III though, so why would Microsoft want to limit its exposure?
