IMHO, it serves a dev right, if they hype their freaking game for YEARS, and expect everyone to grow old waiting. The fix? Do not announce till 6 months or so before release. I applaude HL 2s devs for the way they handled PR.

Except... the same thing EXACTLY happened to Valve. The source leak. The delay. Etc.

I love alpha/beta leaks, as long as it's not a leak of the full game. I'm a total freak and I love being able to check out the stuff. I still play the Doom 3 alpha every now and then, and every time I do it just gets me hyped up for the final game. You know what's really sad? The Doom 3 alpha is more stable than some games that have just been released in their so-called final state. It's both sad and funny at the same time.

Actually, that NO WAREZ HERE announcement seems to be gone.

You're kidding right?

"Half-Life2 September 30!" September30 hits...."Half-Life2 Holiday Season!" 2003 almost over. And to this day nobody knows when HL2 will actually ship.

I'd be surprised if something popular doesn't get leaked.

Who cares when the game is out. It will be out when it is done. The software companies don't OWE us any thing. If they don't put out good products and don't deliver when they say then don't buy their products.

The same people who can't wait for a unfinished demo are the same people who complain how buggy the game is when it is released.

It's just a game.

It is true that console games can be bought at the store, and returned, MOST places, but pc games have some kind of copyright crap stuck to them, that hinders everyone, that buys a crappy game, to just eat it.

I dont believe in wares(I use to be into it) because it is plain wrong, but I do think that their should be some kind of way for us to play the game, B4 it is released.

Maybe for us 56k'ers, send out the demo cd to the stores, bout 2 weeks before the game hits. This would cost me a whole $5 to find out if it's a dud or not.

I have a stack of pc games on this table beside me, and half of them were crap, but couldn't find out without buying them, and opening the box.

I think it's a bunch of hog wash that we have to accept an unfinished product, because of 'copyright' laws. What about the laws that protect my $50 from crap!!!
