Good points ZigZang, it's a bit of the turnside of the Mod medal isn't it?
I never play multiplayer anymore because 99.99999999% of all people on the Internet aren't worth the air that they breathe, and I'm heartily awaiting a law that bans anyone < 25 years of age from the Net. (Cue obligatory bitches and moans by anyone below that age
This whole patching before it's released is just fucked up. While some people will proclaim that it's a sign that "developers are very dedicated to their game", to me it's a sign of "Get it released now so we can make money, then see about actually getting it to work later".
Considering the fact that it obviously wasn't done, and STILL they decided to come out during a time when an absolute fucking HORDE of games is being released, this doesn't speak well of the publisher either, but all publishers are fucking rats anyways, so no surprise there.
They raped my ass with Tribes 2, and the only reason I even bothered to marginally follow Vengeance was because of Irrational. If you made System Shock 2 you get much love in my house.
This whole imminent patching bullshit has already turned me off again though. It will probably only be 2 weeks before all the "Waaah, I can't play it at 5000000000fps on my P2-400 and my Virge graphics card, it needs to be nerfed!" whiners will get the publisher to lame all the maps and fuck all the graphics, so we'd all feel like we're playing something from the Nintendo 8 bit system. There are far better things to spend money on, fortunately.
Btw, did anyone get the Van Helsing DVD today? Any decent extras on it?
