Amazon has it for $29.99.

I'd say it's worth it.

You can't technically crucify him on the Eiffel tower, it's not a cross. We could impale him there though, sounds fun.

I disagree.



I see more than enough cross's on the Eiffel tower. It is more then good enough for him.



Any ways, I am not surprised at the delay. I feel sick after all that hype'n'bs about HL2. Right now HL2 needs to lie low and Valve needs to fire their PR people and get some serious work done. All of a sudden Doom 3 looks a lot more promising right now.


As for game suggestions, try Prince of Persia (that is if you don't all ready have it.)

Yeah, but isn't it mult-player only? I need a good single-player game.

**** you Valve!

I'm sick and tired of this. I'm gonna go cash in my HL2 preorder and put the money somewhere else. Doom 3 and HL2 are too far away for me to care, atm.

Once HL2 comes out, I'm guessing that it's going to be a sweet game, but until then, I have bills to pay.

No toilet paper at home and i really need to go!
Well, guess my HL-2 coupon will have to do.

Seriously though. Don't panic, not yet.
Ok, it's not a good sign but i wouldn't worry..

Agreed.
Can't wait for UT2004, it's gonna rock so hard.

And tomorrow we get to try the FarCry single player demo.

A quote from "Almost Famous": It's all happening!

Sure is.
