Dark Forces, the original one, was the demo I think I was most hyped about. I remember waiting for the first game magazine with a demo in it to come out like WEEKS in advance!

If Half Life 2 is really delayed to Sept 2004, Far Cry is probably the reason Half Life 2 delayed, maybe Valve think Far Cry released in March and Half Life 2 released in April could hurt Half Life 2 sales. Delay the release by 5 months will give Valve put more works on Half Life 2 to catch up with Far Cry.

^I second that.

I will learn how to code and code my own game before HL2 comes out. I have dropped this from my "must have" list all together.

Really? I thought you did have one, I'll keep me eyes open for prospective GFs for ya.

I think my wife is going to love Far Cry, she's a tropic island kind-o-gal.

Yeah, apparently it has been pushed back to Wednesday. But as you say, the bittorrent links are spreading like fire so i guess some were able to download the demo while ubisofts ftp was wide open.

Don't think it's popular to post torrent links here though..or?

18 mins left..come on you lazy *beep*

I don't know either, I was going to ask someone to post it for me since it's a demo...but I'd rather have a mod give it a go/no go before hand. (hint-hint mods! )

No I don't have one. To be honest I haven't looked either. The ex-wife did a number on me and I'm in no position right now.

I will say this for you liberals. It is easy to get girls when you are liberal and the girls are much easier.

Knowing you just as soon as it's available anywhere.

Sorry, I forgot about your ex....I'd be reticent after an experience like that too. (Me once again thanks the fates that got me and my wife together!)
