>Fileplanet people pay so that they don't have to wait in
>line for 3 hours to download things, and with high speeds

Okay. Fine. You wanna pay for the bandwidth so you don't have to wait in line, that's fine. If I wanted to download the demo from FilePlanet, and they told me "You gotta wait in line for three hours on our public servers and watch ads while you wait", fine. That's fair.

But to say "only our elite members can download and play the demo at all, because you need a special activation key", well, that's stupid. Sure, those foolish enough to pay for FilePlanet subscriptions are made happy, but for those of use who don't have FP subscriptions, it has two effects:
1) Angers us at GameSpy, assuring that we will NEVER get FP subscriptions.
2) Angers us at Microsoft, as they're trying to screw the consumer AGAIN, even if in the short term, by trying to make you pay for something which is traditionally try.

As a wage-earning, tax-paying adult, I realize that I have limited funds on which to spend on my hobby. I now choose not to spend these funds on Freelancer. I will take my business elsewhere.

Hey, nothing like alienating everybody who's not a FilePlanet subscriber.

I was on the fence in the beginning about Freelancer. Now they're telling me that I gotta be a FilePlanet subscriber to try the demo. They could go fark themselves.

Just like Microsoft. When you click on a link to the movie, Media Player errors out with "The path to the media file is incorrect". It would be too easy to let people (gasp!) download the files to their hard drive and watch them at their leisure.

"Program... I will crush you!"

Sweet. I'm gonna upgrade my video card for this game alone.

Oi. I just finished the demo, and I have to agree. The demo was choppy and appeared to have a major memory leak. Even when I exited out, Windows XP was sluggy and jumpy. I had to restart.

Gameplay wise... eh, nothing special. I've played better Half-Life mods.
