Yea...I also agree on that. UT2K4 is hands down the best game of 2004. The only way I think that could change is if HL2 ships this year and is half as good as the reviews are hyping it to be. ONS is too addicting, and when I finally do get tired of it from time to time, there's pretty much 10 million other game types I get into for weeks, if not months at a time..like assault, instagib ctf, etc.

publishers have to announce any release changes to vendors regardless....so far the verdict from the publisher is on the 1st...if your lookn at tom's hardware, its been noted thier source for that info was questionable since that source would have no way of knowing

the vampire game is linked, it uses the same engine so according to the usual contracts they have to release the game after the release of hl2...but its possible if hl2 gets pushed back more and another developer is waiting that valve would let them go ahead and release it

I have a funny feeling that it has been waiting.
This isn't the first time I've seen their release dates so close together.

ya the devopers for vampire have been done for quite a while now i do beleive, thier just stuck on thier contract, just seems to me valve would let em release it if they have to wait any longer since theres no doubt alot of money sittn there doin nothing but costing more but i doubt it, if valves publisher doesnt change thier date for another couple of weeks then i think the nov 1st is a safe bet, if weve learned anything from farcry and doom3 and every other previous popular game then its known that you always rely on the vendor's date before any others websties date since that date is direct from publisher and required.

Default Re: Crytek deceives and has killed any future for FarCry

Vampires was ready last year in october, but due to HL2's delay, they've basically been sitting on the game for a year.

They have been tweaking it, etc...using the time wisely...but the game has been ready for a year and I really feel for them. They have to be kicking themselves for using the source engine and being screwed over on releasing the product. But then again....would so many people even give this game a second look if it was on a lesser engine? Kind of a catch 22 for them. I hope you're right....i'd love to have HL2 nov.1st.....but seeing as a few sites that were @ a convention that VUG was at reported them being told late nov. at earliest....I'm skeptical. All I know is Valve has soaked alot into this game...they need to see some returns, and I know Vivendi is in a not so good financial state right now, and can really use a boost....so to me, it would make sense to push this puppy out the door asap....but with the lawsuit, and vivendi being vivendi (clueless idiots) I can c possible problems.

The lawsuit worries me...because they need to know how much $$ each company has coming before they can release it.

WoW has made me its bitch even in beta so this news won't kill me but I am very disappointed. When the news of EA acquiring Crytek was announced and with the knowledge that a console port was in the works I kind of expected the game to be dead.
