i'm thinking that they're doing this to see how long it takes the hax0rz to crack the encryption on the 'automagically downloaded to your hd regardless of purchase' version. you know, if they even bother.

lord only knows what happens when hl2 comes out.

'look - here's 2.5 gigs for your hd/dsl connection!'

'gee, thanks. now i have to delete a gig of pr0n so that i can boot my machine now that i don't have any space left. nice.'

yawn.

i'm sure that this will sell to some degree, but it's a shame, really, that this is even getting released. with bf:vietnam and far cry coming out right around the same time for about the same price, i think that some poor fools'll get cheated, here.

i'd /love/ to know what caused the last delay... especially after it had "gone gold".

that's the first and last time that you'll see 'counter-strike:condition zero' and 'worth playing' in the same phrase, i think. by the time that comes out, will anyone care at all? heck, it'd probably not even be worth /downloading/, much less 'buy'.

what a waste.

anyone else notice that the 'take over the galaxy' gametype that they're talking about on the gamespy page is called 'galactic conquest'? now /that's/ a meta-fox, right there. sheesh!

it's an interesting tech demo, but little else. looks like it was a build from october of 2k2, so i'm sure that it's quite a bit further along by now

while i'm happy that they were able to ape the style of geocities circa 1998, i have to point out that this site is nothing more than a hype machine for travelocity.

wank wank wank.

honestly, though... how hard would it be to consider that up front and do an incremental save at the beginning of each level, then? essentially, have a 'start of level' save up front, then the actual place in the level afterwards (in the same file). if the savegame actually is on a level that has a change (unlikely, but possible), then revert back to the beginning of the level and /explain/ that to the user. don't break all save games just because there's a chance that it would do that, though.

good points, btw. thanks!

man, that's so ghetto. i wish that there were more of a push to think about the saved game format up front, so that developers could ping the version of the saved game and restore it/update it as needed instead of just straight up breaking it. tron's been out for a few months now, so i can imagine that many people will update with this patch and loose 10-20 hours worth of gameplay.

there really has to be a better way.

just a bit more time spent up front in the technical architecture part seems to me to be able to really pay off later on.

in response to post 21:

it not always the case that retail == lame experience. in some ways, i'd love it if more people played dc. for instance...

day of defeat is still quite fun... and it's been retail for a bit now. honestly, i think that cs is the exception, not the rule. besides, cs was full of smarktards well before it went retail anyway.

i'd really love to give trama my $ at this point. i've been playing dc more than 1942 for months now... the expansions were pretty much worthless (i think that i played secret weapons once or twice), but i play dc at least a couple of times a week (since beta .2, i think). great mod, great mod.

plus, i love being able to play as a sniper with a semi-auto gun

...do yourself a favor and choose a different server. for some reason, you'll dump to the desktop if you try to connect to a server running .5. by tomorrow or something, i'm sure that everyone will be upgraded to .6 anyway.

great new maps, btw. too bad most of the .6 servers only have 5-10 people on them

ok... i'm a moron. what's rvr? if you read the post, you'll see that they use it constantly, but never define it.

does this new design mean the end of the way-cool logos that walter was making for you? that's a shame... i really liked how he pushed the idea of a logo, and would sometimes show it to my classes as an example of good logo utility. (ie... if the brand is strong enough, you can do almost anything with it and still retain the original feel of the brand). i'll be sad to see it go.

i like the beginning of the gradient idea up top, but it's a shame that that doesn't continue on down the page. this feels very much like an in-between design.... i can't wait to see what the final one is.

it's a shame that that couldn't be a bit smaller and aligned to the right instead of left. i know that they want to be all up in here and all, but this is bluesnews, not ugo (and that logo is a monster). it would fit really nicely on the other side, though.
