I keep all my boxes. And I'm running out of shelf room.
Although I actually do like the current type of boxes. It has room for lots of pretty pictures to look at when deciding if you want to buy the game. It also makes them easy to find on the store shelves.

Tell me... what thought out gameplay was there in Quake 3?
They put a bunch of models on a map, gave them guns, and they blast each other. there's nothing more than that. the guns don't even have alt-fire.
I said it once, I'll say it again... Arena was just a demo for the Q3 engine.

It has some decently thought-out gameplay.
Which is more than anyone on earth can say about Quake 3.

I don't see many problems at all with the graphics engine. The fire is a bit silly, but they obviously weren't attempting to make the game realistic looking. It really seems that they're trying to make an FPS that's just fun. Seems like a good idea to me.

Also, I think it's safe to say that the current graphics are not final at all, since they spent most of the development time creating the GORE engine.

Actually, it's $60 a copy. And then the special editions were about $70, which just about sold out.

There was a bug that gave Lt's unlimited grenades, and they could just spam passages with them endlessly.

Wow, just looks like alot of uppity people who happen to be uppity about their sexual preference seek to uppity to someone for an obscure reason.

Wendy's pulled the ad from the show because it was a "controversial subject", which was apparently against their advertising guidelines. You'd be hard pressed to get anyone to agree with an assertation that Ellen wasn't a controversial show. Sure, the policy is stupid, but it doesn't show that they have anything specifically against homosexuality.

And just because some random person claims that Dave Thomas likes a homophobe, it doesn't make it true.

There are plenty of rights violations in the country. Can't people use more VALID examples, rather than knocking on a dead guy because they disagree with his company's advertising standards?

#2,
Spyware secretely takes personal or private information from your computer. Playing a game that you know has PunkBuster software integrated into it, where you KNOW how PunkBuster works, is not secretive. If you don't trust the software, don't play the game. But by playing the game, you would imply consent to how any of the official software works, as long as the company divulges ALL information about how it works (which PunkBuster seems to have done).
Not to mention that anything you do in Wolfenstein multiplayer is public, and the altering of the game coding is illegal (as by section 2 of the EULA). Right to privacy does not include public actions.

The "communism" comment doesn't even make sense, so I won't comment on it.

I don't know. $5 bucks says he wanted to give them a role.
Instead they have a small blurb without speech and then they die. I'd go just to see them die.
But if he ****s up with anything having to do with Boba Fett, he'll see a gigantic chunk of his fanbase just leave, get shitloads of hate mail, and Episode 3 will fail. I garauntee you.

>>And why would they advertise if nobody buys the magazine?<<
Well, last time I checked, no one was buying CGW solely for the demos.
Which is why they still sell the version without the disk.

CGW rant and EA ripping us off Jan 3, 2002, 15:05
Jan 3, 2002, 15:05
 
For all the people worrying about the hurting of magazine sales... I wouldn't worry too much. The bulk of money that publications get comes from their ads. That's why the ads are there.

Jeff seems like a nice guy and all, but I personally don't like CGW much, because of how much they editorialize. PC Gamer seems to offer a much less biased veiw of games in their reveiws, since theirs seem to mirror what i've actually seen in games.
I guess the straw that broke the camel's back was the Tribes 2 review. It was:
1.) two months after release (and I don't take that "production schedule" crap. Ten other publications were able to have an article on the game out a month earlier)
2.) consisted of only 25% of the article talking about the actual gameplay. The ohter 75% was bitching about problems installing the game. Not to mention that the reviewer went on to blame the problems on the dev team, when it was already news that Sierra decided to release it against the team's warnings that it was unfit for release.
(Although I'd like to commend them on getting alot of articles that PC Gamer doesn't do, like the Arcanum preview.)

But enough about my CGW ranting. The entire problem is, EA is trying to push a DEMO as some sort of a retail product. Considering EA's current financial problems (which has led to mass-axing of games that have gone all the way to final beta stage), it sure as hell seems like they're trying to make a quick buck by ripping us off on a demo we can get free in a week, or by buying a magazine. I wouldn't blame ANYONE for being skeptical about EA's intentions.

Does anyone else wonder why we didn't see all this crap when Blues News AND FilePlanet have posted demos out of foreign magazines before?

>>BluesNews has become the haven for...childish behavior<<
>>Also looks like that Zombie poster has WAY too much free time on his hands if hes actually reading all these posts<<

Thank you for demonstrating. Insulting me for reading above an eigth grade level IS childish.

>>Not fair to honest customers who actually "buy" games to see all the awefull stuff posted here at BluesNews.<<

1.) It's not a GAME. It's a DEMO.
2.) It's a demo that's going to be released NEXT WEEK for FREE.
3.) It's a demo that you bou-- oh. wait. You didn't buy it? Because no one else did either.

There is seriously something wrong with the gaming industry when you hear the term "warez the demo".
Am I alone on this?

Pirate a demo? No morals for posting a single level of a game? Huh? P.O.S. quake mods are worth money now?

Hm? what was that? You conveniently forgot to mention that there was nothing on the sites about removal? Oh. Must have slipped your mind.

EA is obviously attempting to squeeze every bit of cash they can out of one of their only games in the past six months that have made it to release. EA IS GOING BROKE. What they're doing is trying to get a fast buck off of selling a demo.
Have you EVER seen a game try to SELL a demo?
I see people blaming blue's news for warez and shit, but they have yet to address that demos are NOT meant to generate revenue, they are meant to promote it.

I'm sorry if I don't lay down for marketing for legalese. I guess I just have some sort of dignity left.

And I see everyone screaming about how it "steals money from CGW". Well, you can give CGW a winning lottery ticket, but it won't stop the fact that their magazine is absolute CRAP ON A STICK.
