Blue, you deserve the time off my friend. You do the work of three people on this fantastic news site and I'm amazed you find time for sleep!

Agreed, I love that this continues to be made. I played a few patches back and had zero problems with the game start to finish - it's amazing how much he has fixed, when I tried that game unpatched it was a total shambles, broken animations and quest bugs all over the place.

If Warrior Within is any indication, all his means is more out-of-place metal music, more stubble, and more swearing. Oh dear.

It's great in a good corp, and it feels less like a level fest and mroe rewarding as a result.

I'm fairly sure Shiva is a free update just like their last major one was (I forget the name though).

"Giving hype a bad name" is spot on Blue. Man, I used to be a Sega fanboy through and through, but these days they just impress me less and less. Very few great games, no Shenmue 3, and now this, abusing the trust and dedication of fans like me. It's like the Sega I knew and loved died with the Dreamcast.

Deus Ex in Europe is already listed as DVD only, presumably because of the many language voice recordings in there. No surprise Thief 3 will be the same.

The difference here between the Call of Duty demo and the Lord of Everquest *BETA* is the beta bit. It's not out for people to try, it's out for people to test, therefore they want a limited number of users, ideally of the computer/game literate variety. In which case using a file subscription service makes sense.

The issue with CoD was a) It was meant to be a public demo b) Everyone wanted to play CoD it so the FP servers were bound to get hosed with mile long queues if that was exclusve, which is dumb.

I love Blues News, I just want to get that out of the way before anyone says I'm trolling. Having said that, the increasing prominence of the banners is driving me crazy. I pay to remove them on ShackNews, I would gladly and willingly do the same here if only there were an option for it. Does the agreement with UGO prevent something like this?

Y'know, this game looked pretty unremarkable until I checked out the video. This is the spiritual successor to Abuse. I loved that game. I hope they don't screw this up. I can't wait.

Why? Because it's l33t. Seriously, this'll be fun to run when I get home. And there are so many people out there that SOMEONE has to find a use for it. In the end I guess Daniel Vogel decided to implement it because he can. And attitudes like that have resulted in some pretty cool (if often pointless) software in the past.

Anyone got any screenshots of this yet?

"What other possible countries (from 1942) do we have left? I guess that could give us an idea how many addons we will get."

I'm glad someone *finally* had the balls. All the other publishers haven't been willing to risk it - they've all been waiting for one of the big boys like EA to try, and even then they were expecting a dual format test (CD/DVD). Hopefully this'll finally kick the PC games industry in the ass, the fact that we don't usually get DVD games is starting to be a problem that will only get worse. Just look at the number of 3 CD games appearing, how much of a pain in the ass is it to install them? A big one. What I don't get is this: anyone with a PC remotely capable of playing UT 2003 is BOUND to have a DVD drive, surely? The odds of someone having a 1 gig+ machine and no DVD must be stupidly slim. I'm pretty sure publishers are using stats from years back of the entire PC market rather than recent DVD drive penetration stats from gamers, which is just dumb.

Anyway, yes, let's hope this sells like hotcakes despite the "less common" format (come on, DVD drives are dirt cheap these days) and therefore starts a long overdue trend.

Nah, he lives, you can even hear the dialogue on the DVD if you listen, the cops telling Pink to get down on the floor and stuff I think - the bang is Pink slamming the warehouse door.

Oh, and yeah, this is probably going to be a pretty terrible game which is a deep shame for such a great movie. The Dusk 'till Dawn game was horrid and SCi slaughtered The Italian Job, in fact the last decent game they did was Carmageddon.

My god, it feels like Daikatana all over again. Except I think Freelancer could still be good. Have to wait for the reviews though.

Worms and Viruses etc. easily outnnumbered spam in my inbox (after my own custom spam filters were applied) until recently. I use The Bat! and after getting sick enough of these thing I found a good, free virus checker, installed it, installed the Bat plugin, et voila, no more virus spam! It all gets filtered into a Quarantine folder, saving me the headache of deleting it by hand.

They started from SCRATCH?! Jesus, for a company that released one fo the greatest games of all time Valve has nonetheless managed to make themselves look like fools repeatedly since.

Likewise. One of the saddest losses of the internet crash was stomped.com as it was with Redwood and Vangie.

This has been known about in the GW community for months now, officially too, so it's funny THQ only sent the press release today. Nice to see some shots of it finally though.
