From their forums:

Posted 23 September 2009 - 04:19 PM

We need to verify that indeed all emails that we have received from registered users are valid - anyone that has submitted a duplicate email address will be disqualified. All validated users will receive their prize of a $10 or $20 coupon on or before October 12nd. This is the end date of this promotion and when we will be announcing the winner of the grand prizes.

So these free games are long gone, they just "forgot" to stop promoting it.

I hope that's finally the actual release date, considering how many hypothetical release dates the game has had in the past few years. Still, looking forward to it, whenever it comes out.

Edit: Protagonist's VA's reel here.

I never finished the first one because I couldn't figure out how to activate that damn shield generator and was too stubborn to look it up before losing interest. I bet it'd run just fine under XP; I should give it another go.

But yeah, would love to see new games set in the Gateway universe, MMO or otherwise. I wonder if Atari inherited the rights from Legend?

Too bad graphical interactive fiction is dead.

While it's of course possible to extrapolate from his previous titles and come to some valid assumptions as to what might be expected of this game, in this case a lot of the people haven't actually played any of them, and are just compelled by evolutionary psychology to join the mob. We don't actually know anything specific yet, so is it so impossible to hold on to at least a little hope in some corner of your blackened hearts that the game might be good? Angel

I've never actually played any of his games, but they can't possibly be as void of all merit as people seem to imply, considering he's still making them.

Maybe his ostensible personality makes him easy to hate, and people mistake disliking him with disliking his games?

One thing I've noticed - most of the people I know that like FOX news are pretty nice and decent people. Most of the people I've met that hate it are pretty intolerable, elitist and usually rude. (Notice how they always have to throw an insult into their opinion.) Looks like some of the posts here fit the mold.

Translation:
"One thing I've noticed - most of the people I know that like FOX news have the same opinions I do, and therefore are nice and decent. Most of the people I've met that hate it have opinions different from mine, and thus are pretty intolerable, elitist and usually rude. (Notice how I delivered a blanket-insult along with my opinion.) Looks like I'm completely oblivious to my personal bias."

Don't worry, I'm sure an executive with a wife, children and stable work history for 20+ years will suddenly develop a PCP habit just to suit your internet fantasies pal.

I'm not your pal, friend.

Also, like I said, I was joking about everything except the part where I wished he'd lose his job. There are worse things in life than a millionaire losing one job, and I actually think that's a reasonable thing to wish on someone who openly says he tries to instill an atmosphere of "skepticism, pessimism, and fear" at his workplace, never mind all the other stuff.

You do realize your hobby is videogames and not gun running or smuggling, right?

Wait, what? Your reaction seems a bit strong. I'd ask if you know him or something, but you don't come across as quite big enough an asshole to hang with him :p

Yeah except that he's worth like something like 50mil but you keep dreaming man.

Wealthier people have been undone by drugs, buddy.

I'm half hoping this, DJ Hero and Tony Hawk: Ride all flop horribly, Robert Kotick loses his job, defaults on his mortgage, developes a PCP habit and ends up under a bridge somewhere.

Or at least the job part. I guess I'd feel pretty bad about the rest.

Might not want to get this one on Steam if you think you might be interested in future mods. The forced patches are likely to be a problem.

Do you know what 'predated' means? Do you know that 1981 came before 1992?

He said "the first one", and considering Akalabeth was the first Ultima game, used 1st person view in the dungeon mode, and came out in 1979, he's in fact right.

You do know that 1979 came before 1981, right? Devil

Does GoGamer only sell within the US?

They seem to only ship to US addresses. I'm a foreign devil, and I just ordered a bunch of games for a friend in the US. It seemed to go through alright. I had to do it via Google Checkout, though, as their own system only had a pulldown menu for US states for the billing address. Guess I'll find out what happens!

I wouldn't be surprised if those were just the countries that they want to put pressure on currently, so they release some random percentages to try to influence policy. Maybe there's some law that's currently being voted on? It's not like they're above that.

I love steam engines of all kinds, and really hope they'll make a comeback some day (minus the coal). At least they're once again building new steam locomotives. They're also working on diesel/steam hybrids, which is pretty awesome in my book.

*Retraction* Actually, I may have been thinking about the Worldwide Invitational... not sure they ever streamed Blizzcon before.

That obsolete tech article made me feel really old. Nice read.

It probably says a lot about me that I've actually tried to find old modem connect sounds to download, but happily they linked to a simulator.

Wasn't there speculation some time ago that it would be set in Skyrim? I have no source for that; just some muddled memory. That should be a bit more interesting the the generic high fantasy of Oblivion, although of course Akavir would be ideal as far as strangeness and uniqueness goes.
