3D Action Planet, a semi-minor game site yet more major than our own, has a review up of the Unreal 2003 demo. I don't know who these guys are but they sure don't charge money to view stuff at their site. Stupid ass Gamespotting whores.

Anyway, check the review out here (http://www.3dap.com/features/demos/ut2003/). It's quite a long review so if you read it, tell me about it. I'm going back to sleep. Work sucks.

i've played it a bit, graphics are very pretty (water effects very nice), guns have been beefed up a bit, some interesting new game modes and maps, looks promising

I've played it too. Really love that railgun type thing. The map design is really nice too.

That's not too bad. I might have to give it a try.

You should. Rachel got it the other day and it looks pretty great.

The downside is that it doesn't run for more than 5 seconds at a time on my computer.

Thanks for the recomendation Darkstar, I mean Shining.

I'll go download it right now.

Venom

And as I go to their site what do I see? A patch for the demo. What the fuck? A patch for a demo that's a week old? That's retarded.

Venom
19-09-2002, 00:13:05
Damn 7 minutes to download it. That sucked. Too slow need more bandwidth.

Fuck you, bitch.

Bet it worked, too...

Venom
19-09-2002, 02:52:53
Yep. Working pretty good. And by that I mean perfectly.

:lol: i haven't got the patch - and what do you mean retarded? that's what releasing these demos is all about, saves finding out the bugs when the full game comes out

7 mins to download 100megs?
Zowee!

(note to self, must get broadband...)

I've never liked the Unreal series of games.

I know that but it took like 3 days for them to get a patch out. It just made me laugh a bit.

Patch schpatch

Venom

And yes, 7 minutes, but that was slow. I started the download out at about 450kb/sec and it dropped slowly down to around 300.

FunkyFingers
19-09-2002, 12:21:16
Bah - I get what, 4kb/sec on average if I'm lucky...

I think I'll check, see if I can get ADSL on my exchange, hang on...

FunkyFingers
19-09-2002, 12:24:26
Ooh, my exchange is ADSL ready :)

Wonder if I can justify the cost...

Venom

Of course you can. It's a life changing experiment. I can never go back to surfing on a dial up. I just can't. I'll die first.

FunkyFingers

Dr FF will have to be consulted though

Venom
19-09-2002, 12:50:59
She'll enjoy it to. She may not think so at first but she will.

It's what, 30 a month for BT Openwoe, or (NOT)Freeserve ADSL?

Hmm - currently my surfing bills come to about 20 a month.

Funkodrom

DON'T GO FOR BT!!!

I think you can get ADSL for around 25 if you shop around.

And it's BT, who I hate.
I have Virgin Phone at home now. Wonder if Virgin do broadband, seeing as they have their own ISP?

Funkodrom

I love Virgin. I've got Virgin Gas and Electricity, and Phone, now all I need is a Virgin Mortgage, buy a new Virgin Car and get Virgin Internet and I'll be Bransons best mate.
