Seems like you don't know that Doom3 will be out in a few short months...

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

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

Sure is.
What are you talking about? The single player demo of Far-Cry is already out
ftp://ftp.ubisoft.nl/Demo/FarCry/Sin...DemoFarCry.zip

Edit: Nevermind.. *sniff* It was up earlier.

there was a miscommunication with Ubisoft Holland and they posted the demo to early. The file has been removed from the FTP. Around 11 o clock tonight more official mirrors should be available. We wish everybody a lot fun with half of the files.

Hehe, yeah, i just saw that over at the forums@ubi. Guess the demo will be out today, in..about an hour and 15 mins? 10 PM GMT or something like that.

Wee! Can't wait.

Hope it won't be dissapointing.

Well, I'm very excited about the single player portion. From the Mulit-Player beta test, I can already tell that single player could have some interesting results if done correctly
The game is already in a fairly polished state.

I never got to be a tester.
But who cares about that today?

Lets hope for a really good demo, kinda like the first one of CoD. Kickass.
Best demo yet. Or perhaps the UT demo back in -99 still is the best, i'm not sure.

I suck at time zones, I thought it was going to be in 13 hours and 15 minutes.

Hurray! Something new to play with!

UT demo definately over the CoD one, but the best demo ever was still the original Doom....IMHO.

That was definitely a great one. Playing DM-Morpheus on a Voodoo3 at 1024x768 in Glide was an experience to behold.

My other favorite demos include q3test-1.08, the one that only had one map and one model. I also love the original Medal of Honor MP demo. Stalingrad is such a fun map, especially for 3-4 players. Vash knows exactly what I'm talking about.

Back OT - I'm very excited about the Far Cry single player demo. If I likes, I will go out and place my order the next day. I need something new to sink my teeth into. Half-Life is still fun, but it's time for something different.

The best two demos I have played were Dungeon Siege and Battlefield 1942, I played battlefield for about 5 hours then ran into town to buy it. The moment I finished the Dungeon Siege demo I wanted to get into that damn tower so I went into town and bought it.

The only two demos that have made me buy that game instantly
