im relaxed... sick, but relaxed. my 'tone of voice' comes from how disappointed i am. ive explained why.
They didn't even think they'd have an actual live build to show off at all, and if you knew how many hours they worked to get it ready to show something at PAX.. hell, Blair hand-delivered the thing.
Im glad they are working and ive done some programming i realise how hard it is. im not talking about what they presented. i havent even SEEN what they presented yet. im upset about HOW they presented it, then shove it on the forums like: "well, we did show you SOMETHING". yeah, something in a pamplet that im NEVER going to see unless someone scans it onto a computer and puts it on YouTube! whats the point of being on the official website and forums if i have to go to YouTube to get my info?
No it wasn't playable but what did you expect to see? It's not like Entrenchment where you can just show a Starbase for the WOW factor. Hell, Entrenchment wasn't playable either. They just showed you the TEC starbase and TEC mines. That's it.
Again, i dont care what they showed, i care that they cater for the small percentage of people able to go to PAX and leave everyone else out in the cold. i have no doubt (i hope, they could still do something monumentally stupid) that they will post electronic versions on the website soon, after their "holiday" (though why someone couldnt have taken the time to post it as it came out or soon after it came out at PAX i dont know), BUT, to claim that
pamphlets, interviews and demos.
some of the demo on youtube that was taken unofficially.
a fair bit of info
is just down right insulting.
Im not upset about what they showed, im upset that they have welded their mouths shut for over 6 months, then release some info at some gaming expo that i had never even heard of until now, and then threw up their hands and said 'well, there was a fair bit of info there" that i wont see until someone posts it on the net, AND if the YouTube reference was any example im sure alot of it will be third party if not boot-legged
THATS what im upset about. Poor Show Ironclad.
