The transplant was considered botched since the surgeons transplanted one of the wrong blood type, which pretty much fits the definition of "botched".

From the article:

Unfortunately, in this case, human errors were made during the process

True, it's entirely possible that had the right organs been transplanted that she might have died anyway, but we'll never know.

Does anyone here honestly think it'll stay a FilePlanet Subscriber-exclusive demo forever? It'll be allowed on other sites before too long, and on covermount CD-ROMs. And if its not then they don't really want to sell the game that much, in which case they're fools instead of jerks.

Well what's worse, the idea that the Eurpoean version will be much better than the US version, or the idea that they'll just wait until the US version gets punched up a bit before they bother to unleash the same crap on Europe?

offers a four year single-player scenario

four years? Well that should buy them some development time.

Yes I know this is a lame joke.

No, I don't actually believe this, but I thought it might make for a good laugh in this thread.

But still, I saw a Hummer over my lunch break - holeeshit! I always thought people against the SUV needed to get a life - but I start to see their point when I see one of these. I tremble in fear of whatever puts this vehicle in its place.

Then why even bother to mention it?

For the same reason he bothers to mention the release of several games that are only accessible to those who go to the store and pay for them.

Plus, it's Steam. It's Valve. It's Counter-Strike. It's news. Blue's News. Geddit?

...that the full game is just sort of "meh" - very average. But the voice acting is TOP NOTCH and very hilarious, forcing you to keep playing just to see what happens next. Good voice acting is so rare in games (in fact, next to non-existant) that this alone makes this game stand out.

It's very strange that they would chose to tank development like this, especially since I presume it was already well on its way

Perhaps it was that the single player bit was never even started and so they decided to have a BF1942-esque free addon to their existing game and sell more copies of it, while not annoying the people who bought the game in the first place.

I'm trying to remember what portion of this was shown off at QuakeCon 2002 - was any single player shown off?

if a company like Epic can't afford to find/work with some people who *can* make a demo, then who, pray tell, can?

Well actually it was Legend Entertainment who made Unreal II, so it wasn't Epic's fault Legend didn't have enough people.

And although I made the initial diss in this thread about a lack of a demo to "trick" consumers into buying it, there's also the other end of the bargain - when the developer/publisher decide it doesn't need a demo. No demo didn't hurt Warcraft III's sales or its reviews. It only got a demo when the sales started to slump a bit. And Blizzard not only has tons of people but Sierra's (formerly great) gold charge card. Same for Neverwinter Nights.

But still I don't see how hard it would be to slap together an installer with a crippled EXE and a small level on it. They don't even have the multiplayer concerns that other Demo people have.

How lucky for Rein and Sweeney - a thread about a bad remark in an interview has turned into another one about Unreal II bashing!

I didn't mean to imply that I enjoy racial slurs

I don't think anyone here thought that - fredrickson's racial slurs seem to be limited to the threads no one reads (which is probably why he's "gotten away" with it) - not this one.

Has anyone advanced the theory that perhaps fredrickson is a troll from some established place like SomethingAwful.com?

Then again SA.com's folks wouldn't resort to blatant racism... (not this time but before)

It's not a bad game. Daikatana is a bad game. Half-Life is a good game. Unreal II is "meh".

So yes if you paid $50 to discover this then you'd be mucho pissedo. The game is essentially one big FPS cliche.

And in another vein - they decided not to come out with a Demo for the game, which has been discussed to death. They say they simply didn't budget in time for it, which seems normal enough. But why did they *have* to have it out in February? This would make sense in December, but not Feb. So it's essentially like those movies where the studio doesn't let the critics see it first. Couple no demo to turn people away with the fact that most places won't let you return software and we know why there was no demo.
