Depends on your definition of "big" but Red Faction is due in September, and Command & Conquer: Renegade and Ghost Recon in November. Other shooters due this year are Gore and Codename: Outbreak... have a look here for a list of tentative dates if you're interested:

Plus wasn't it Raul Julius' final movie before his death, or am I way off base on that one?
Looks like it, yeah, if you're not counting TV movies: http://us.imdb.com/Name?Julia,+Raul

Oh, and why is everything posted three times?
Seems the server had a rather high load peak just as those posts were being made - or attempted - causing some funkiness. This happened all the time with the old board, remember? Fortunately the load peaks are fairly rare nowadays and never last long, although that makes it hard to track down their cause.

2. Re: Duality Aug 28, 2001, 18:11  Frans 
 
I do. Does that count, or is it considered part of my job description?

Anyway, I still have a bunch of screenshots somewhere from the time there was a Duality section on 3D Gamers (yoinked last year, because, indeed, both company and game disappeared). Oh well, these things happen...

News Comments > Divine Divinity Screenshots
4. Re: Worst. Name. Ever. Aug 28, 2001, 17:54  Frans 
 
It was originally just called "Divinity" IIRC
Yup, first "Divinity", then "Divinity: the Sword of Lies" and then the name you're now enjoying - or despising, as the case may be.

4. Re: Demo? Aug 23, 2001, 21:16  Frans 
 
I'm afraid that's very likely indeed. Tiberian Sun came out in August 1999, its demo in December 1999, and no demos have been issued for the two games they released since then, Red Alert 2 and Emperor. Pity.

2. Re: Mirrors Aug 22, 2001, 18:59  Frans 
 
Actually, one of the 3D Gamers' ftp server certainly had the demo at posting time, otherwise the website wouldn't even show it, and the other server has just been synced up as well. But both servers are of course maxed out, so more mirrors are welcome indeed.

News Comments > Homeworld 2 Not Cancelled
24. Re: Where are Homeworld Engine Games? Aug 21, 2001, 20:10  Frans 
 
The site is called GamaSutra I believe, although a search of their site doesn't reveal a post-mortem article about Homeworld..
Right, we never covered a Homeworld post-mortem, on Gamasutra or any other site, so perhaps it never appeared online but only in Game Developer Magazine or somesuch?

Someone posted on this jDoom thread commenting on what a game to keep modifying.
Actually, that was yesterday's "jDoom Patch" thread - your other posts are still there and didn't magically move to this thread, nor are you being censored. No comment on possible technical difficulties.

Oh, and yes, we scramble every corner of the web - well, the gaming related ones, that is.

77. Re: Corrupt file? Aug 20, 2001, 23:46  Frans 
 
I downloaded the thing 2 times (from blues and planetmirror) but when I unzip the file I get a bad crc error.
I'm afraid the problem must be introduced on your end, as the file has no CRC errors when verified on our server (nor 3D Gamers' servers).

loonyboi accidentally posted a story here that was to go up on the Shack - I guess he still misses us. Your comment got attached to this story because he removed his story while you were posting it (might be a bug, but then again, this kind thing shouldn't really happen in the first place).

News Comments > Out of the Blue
96. Re: Well... crap! Aug 19, 2001, 21:33  Frans 
 
Its probably the most expensive part to maintain
Actually, it isn't.
i'm sure most people get files from avault or fileplanet or IGN first before bluesnews
Well, that's pretty rare since most of the files we post locally are received directly from the developer/publisher and posted before any other sites, or at a scheduled time together with few others. We feel it's a useful service and there's no immediate reason to discontinue it now (after all, it's only a small archive, we're no FilePlanet or anything ). As for the "most people" part, well, duh, our ftp server allows only 80 users to keep things managable, rather than the hundreds (or more) simultaneous users of the big download sites, but they're rarely as timely updated (IMNSHO ).

News Comments > Game Reviews
2. Re: Demo reviews Aug 19, 2001, 21:02  Frans 
 
No, because these days a lot of demos are so huge that downloading them over a modem connection takes a lot of time, and that's where demo reviews can help make up people's minds whether to take that plunge (just like reviews of full games do for purchases).

Of course, some demo reviews come out two or more weeks after the file's release, making them somewhat pointless, but hey, we don't cook the news, we just serve it (as Blue always likes to point out ).

it doesnt refute that hl2 is being made
Indeed, because that has been indirectly confirmed already. See eg.
http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=viewthread&threadid=21844
and
http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=viewthread&threadid=5932

But the title still hasn't been officially announced.
