Thanks for the linkage, but the credit for the first find goes to Warp2search's story on it...that's where Hanners found it. (And he credited it as such too, I just thought I'd pop it up here since I'm a bit weird and anal about giving credit where credit is due. )

Haha, not really suprising, since all the other big-name FPS games have been leaked. And really, as soon as you make a beta and send it out over the internet, you can be almost sure that someone will crack it so it doesn't need any authorization/cd-key crap to work. Oh well, it's not like these leaks will really affect sales, noone is going to judge the game based on a buggy set of 3 levels (unless it's REALLY bad). Hell, if it wasn't for the HL2 alpha, I probably wouldn't be so excited about it.

UT2003--leaked.

Doom 3--leaked.

HL2--leaked.

U2--I think it was leaked, but I honestly can't remember for sure.

It's a pattern, ladies!

Number one, don't talk about it here because we don't like warez. I don't even have to link the post--you know where it is.

Number two, The Word From Around The Way is that it's a total piece of crap. But then again, so are all leaked alphas.

Oh yes, I forgot Halo. Halo was leaked as well.

I hate this kind of betrayal of confidence. What kind of total dunder head leaks this stuff? I don't understand why people just can't wait for the final addition to play?

All people do is complain about how bad the alpha is. The internet is one big grab ass for free stuff.

It's hard to wait for even a demo since games are fashionably > 1 year behind lately.

Yup, it definatly was, the E3 demo from almost a year before it was released (man, those E3 demos are leak magnets!). Also I think I remember a few other games were leaked, but I can't remember which ones. Man, they really need better security on these things, you would expect companies like Valve and ID and Epic to have the most security on their games.

Oh, and I think the full version of Yuri's Revenge was leaked like a month before the game was released.

Don't forget BloodRayne, the game whose final version was leaked like 4 months before the US launch or something.

I was playing a leaked final game something like 3days after the build date in the main screen!!

I dl the U2 alpha at the time, and it was buggy as hell, I could only load one level without my pc crashing. Im dont care for alphas/betas anymore, and I know STALKER is a game that Im going to get anyways
