I think you would be violating some copyright or exclusivity stuff or something like that by making it available online.

Hey Blokie, if you can't post the review or the movie can you at least tell us if a movie is on the cover CD/DVD and if it's any good? Also, what's the release date for PC Gamer? The 15th?

Review Summary

"A consistently excellent, always varied 3D shooter. The Star Wars game fans deserve"


Plot Details:

you get to fight alongside Lando (voiced by Billy himself) and Luke.

Fight against the Reborn - a dark side cult and Shadowtroopers who weild lightsabers.

First Level: armed with only a stun baton + a Bryar Blaster you must gain acces to an imperial outpost (by shooting the main doors with a gun emplacement) then Jan helps you infiltrate the outpost

You get to control a r5 unit and a mouse droid

controllable vehicles in later levels (at Yavin)

the final boss is a dark Jedi "whose appearance is bound to suprise you."

The Plot is not covered that much as it would spoil it


I do not know how much of this you already know, but i hope some of it is new.

I will answer any questions later.

This 92% is just on the beta, so it looks as if the final will probably be a few points higher, can you say 95%??? :)

I thought they reviewed the final version. Where did they say it was the beta.......if it was a beta review then it would still be a preview..........you cant have a review until you see the final product.

You expect Jedi Outcast to 'beat' Half-Life?
Has Raven ever given off the impression they were going to change the FPS landscape with JO or uttered the ambition to do so?

If you're really looking for a game which has the potential to rival HL's impact on action gaming, wait for Duke Nukem Forever.

BTW, perhaps you shouldn't compare a 3 year old score to a recent one, the theory is that the overall standard by which games are judged has improved since then (though I personally don't wholeheartedly subscribe to that theory).

"I thought they reviewed the final version. Where did they say it was the beta.......if it was a beta review then it would still be a preview..........you cant have a review until you see the final product"

I thought the consensus was that PC Gamer UK reviews beta copies of games whereas the US PC Gamer waits until the final release. The UK fans have been saying this the last few days on this board.

Yup, that's the ticket.

02-13-2002, 03:41 PM
My thoughts exactly, but it's all good imo.

ukdag69
02-13-2002, 03:42 PM
I got that magazine through the post as well. I've made that video available on Morpheus - but I warn you its a HUGE download.

The version PC Gamer reviewed is a late beta, so while it may still have a few bugs, the content is identical to the finished game - so 92% is what its worth. That may not be the highest ever (96% btw, tied between Half-Life and Civ 2) but its pretty damn good.

Another point: Don't think that the review was delibirately suger-coated after Lucasarts gave PCG:UK the exclusive. I remember when Bullfrog gave PCG:UK an exclusive pre-release review of Magic Carpet 2. They gave it something like 44%, then nobody bought the game. PC Gamer UK gets criticised a lot by other jealous magazine editors, but in my opinion its still the best PC games mag around.

TUS_Tomcat
02-13-2002, 03:44 PM
LOL indeed


If i remember correctly (some details may be off, or i may have gotten it all wrong), a long time ago already, they reviewed Grand Prix 2... and had something on the cover like, Grand Prix is BACK...

Anyway, the game was supposed to come out just after the magazine would be in stores, BUT, it was POSTPONED and not just by a week but by a couple of months...

And there they were with their "It is finally here!!!!"




IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY

but something like this DID occur and i think it was with them

ps2maddenman
02-13-2002, 03:48 PM
Hey ukdag69 what is the Morpheus filename to search for it? Also if at least 4 or 5 of us on this board get the file and keep morphues running the d/ls will be super quick for the rest of the people out there who don't have it.

I have cable and as soon as I get the file I will keep it up on Morphues. :)

ukdag69
02-13-2002, 03:49 PM
Yes, its true. But that wasn't the fault of PCG:UK.

If that happens with Jedi Outcast...no...I don't even want to think about it.

TUS_Tomcat
02-13-2002, 03:54 PM
No it wasnt their fault, BUT, i believe that back then they were still saying that they onyl reviewed finished games...


that made it REAL obvious that it wasnt true


also, tell us, what is in the movie!?!?!?

aswer some of our questions already posted :):)



like:

how long is the movie, what resolution is it, is there any other Jedi Outcast stuff on the CDRom/DVD besides the 94 meg movie, WHATS IN THE MOVIE



and what is it called so we can try to find it on morpheus :)

02-13-2002, 04:03 PM
'havent found it on morph yet


first did a search on jedi


i finally thought omg thats it, saw jedi outcast trailer

double clicked and start DLing but remebered to check file size and it was 3.3 megs

duh, old trailer:)

outcast didnt give me anything, now trying JO lol


[EDIT]

ok lets not talk about what JO gave me.... well, it involved a lot of porn but no starwars

ukdag69
02-13-2002, 04:10 PM
The movie looks perfect full screen at high-res, which is why a few minutes of coverage stretches to 92mbs. I think the trailer was a little poorly made in places though. Its an extended version of the trailer they put up on the website.

I can't remember the filename exactly, something like outcast.avi. Just look for a 92mb movie uploaded by username UKdag and Bobs your fathers brother.

Exactly... "wait for DNF" - I've added DNF to my other list of wanted games from 3DRealms... right behind Prey.

JKII was rumored, announced, developed, and about to be released.

DNF was all of the above several times, been in development for god knows how long, and still has no solid release. We think *maybe* it will come out this year, but it's not worth caring about since you can't hype something that doesn't exist.

As for knocking Half-life off the hill: no developer aims to take another specific audience. While many people disagree, the last few major FPSs to be released... sucked. Max Payne was great SP play... but after beating the game, I lost interest. The very next I was back to Half-life/CS/DOD.

Return to Castle Wolfenstein: So-so single player... boring multiplayer. The story in rtcw was a little out there for me. The MP aspect was fun for maybe four or five days... back To HL/CS/DOD. I had more fun in the MP-Test.

Medal of Honor Allied Assault? Sure it beat RTCW.... but it's still the same old stuff. After playing this at a buddies... I didn't even purchase it.

JKII on the other hand is something totally new. New weapons, force powers, a STORY, and one hell of a lightsaber. If people don't flock to this game, I'll be very surprised. In fact, it's one of the few games that does stand a chance to get players from the half-life community.

Unreal 2, Quake 4, Doom 3... all viable canidates for excellent FPS's... but also down the road. JKII is now. It'll give non-starwars fans a chance to have fun at a different type of FPS.

(/me throws his 2 cents in the forum mix)

A lot of porn of the strictly male-male variety to be exact.
Not too surprising if you realise which activity "jo" is an abbreviation of.

Here is a list of everything in the cool Demo

Nothing is preordained
To know the Light
You must see the Dark

Kyle shooting stormtroopers
MultiPlayer battle
More Kyle shooting stormtroopers
Kyle doing a force assisted flip
More Kyle shooting stormtroopers
Lightsabre battle with 2 "Reborn"
Kyle slashing stormtroopers
Kyle using force lightening
At St
More Kyle slashing stormtroopers
More At St
Kyle uses lightsabre throw to take down 2 Rodians
Kyle slashing a Gran
Lightsabre battle with 3 "Reborn"
Kyle slashing open a wall
Lightsabre battle with a "Reborn" who Kyle kills
More MultiPlayer battle
Even more Kyle shooting stormtroopers

The Saga Continues March 2002


The demo is 2 minutes 21 seconds long.

The reveiw does not specify what vehicles are drivable, saying that they don't want to spoil the surprise...

Also mentioned in the reveiw:

4 Difficulty settings Rookie, Jedi, Jedi adept, Jedi master

Even on Rookie the game takes around 15 hours to complete.

Multiplayer modes:

Capture the flag
Deathmatch
Team Deathmatch
Capture the Ysylamiri (sp?)
Holocron Deathmatch
Jedi master


Does anyone know whether you can play Multiplayer Offlinewith Bots, like in ST: Voyager??? It doesn't say in the reveiw.

bty, Jedi Outcast will now be the 4th best FPS ever, according to PC Gamer.

The top 5 FPS at the moment are:

Medal Of Honour Allied Assault (95%)
Half Life (96%)
Return To Castle Wolfenstein (94%)
ST Voyager: Elite Force (92%)
Aliens vs Predator (90%)


Jedi Outcast will slip in at No. 4 next month!

(While H-L has a higher score than MOH, it came out 3 years ago so its score doesent count for as much now,)

That just renders PCG UK's 92% JO score totally meaningless IMO.
EF was a good game but not a great one and RTCW is just plain mediocre (in singleplayer at least).
JO should be vastly better than either of the two and you just can't tell going by PCG's score alone.

ps2maddenman
02-13-2002, 06:24 PM
Hmmm, I personally loved both Elite Force and RTCW, I guess it is all in the eye of the beholder......... But you are right, if you didn't enjoy these 2 you probably will be disappointed with JO, I know I am going to love it since I love those others.

Ushgarak
02-13-2002, 06:46 PM
I wouldn't put too much stock in the scorefor Magic Carpet 2 being indicative of PC Gamer's reviewing approach. It was done by a single, rather nutty reviewer, the entire rest of the team didn't agree and that guy was later fired (though not directly for that)

And yes, it is definitely a beta version they are reviewing. They will assure us, if asked, that they have been promised that it is an accurate representation of the finished product. They have been both wrong and right about that before. Knowing PC Gamer as I do, 92% is a little lower than I was hoping- the true classics get 94% or more.

They didn't have the impact (HL was the right game at the right time), but they sure were better. System Shock 2, NOLF, AvP2, Deus Ex, and so on... I expect JO to be the next. :)

As for DNF being revolutionary... I'll believe it when I see it, times have changed.

HalfLife 98%


Half-life Had its day.. If I went to play through an old game that revolutionised action gaming the last thing I would pick up in my FPS collection would be Half-life.. its way way too overated there were only two or three memorable experiences.. and thats when you fight the marines after that with the aliens and stuff its just a sad ride all the way to the bottom. But enough of Half-life Bashing now to the next one.

Duke Nukem Forever??? you've seriously got to be joking??3D realms haven't produced anything that amazing EVER? and don't mention Max Payne another overated game that sits offers nothing else after your 1st completion of the game.

Basically there are Quake IV and Doom3 that will put us back on track when we're talking revolutionizing the FPS genre and Idsoftware has given the guys at Raven the task of QuakeIV
and Id themselves creating a great new engine for both games.

IdSoftware has been dealing with Raven for ages now and Lucasarts picked up on that..*cough incompetant ******* * but I'm glad they did go with Raven cause now we're gonna have a great game on our hands and if we get a sequal with the DOOM engine maybe in 2004 then what more could we ask.

What would they name it
DarkForces III:Jedi Knight III:Jedi Outcast II: _Fill In the Blank_?


The Power of the Force comes indirectly from an IDsoftware Source

[Edit - Stormy - swearing :tsk: ]

digl
02-13-2002, 07:36 PM
nope, It should be called
Star Wars:DarkForces IV:Jedi Knight III:Jedi Outcast II: _Fill In the Blank_? :D

I agree about HL and MP being overated, however, I dont know how you can be so sure that Q4 and Doom 3 will revolutionize anything. They will probably be amazing graphically, but that isnt a revolution in the genre

Maybe U2 will be more revolutionary

While on the topic of PC GAMER...

Is it just me or has this magazine slacked off lately?

Sure, the PC GAMER tag on the sides of the magazines, as you stack 'em up, looks nice... but I remember a time when one, single issue was the size of THREE of the kind they publish now.

Just really ticks me off...

Hi there
Just to clarify a few points brought up on this forum...
1. Yes, there is/are useable/driveable vehicles/turrets in the game - I don't think you'd want me to reveal the best one because it occurs quite late on in the game and is a great surpise.
2. It would be an infringement of our copyright to scan the pages online and I'd have to get our legal blokes to send an email asking to take them down, so please don't - it will only be a waste of everyone's time.
3. The mag should be available to buy from bigger bookstores in the US - or you can buy a sub online via www.futurenet.co.uk or you can just buy the single issue by clicking on the 'PC Gamer' tab at www.futurenet.co.uk/futureonline/magazine.asp
The latter page is currently showing the issue,before the JK review one, but this will change by tomorrow.
4. Both editions (CD and DVD) carry the new movie - although no playable demo. As far as I'm aware, if a playable demo is made it will be after the game has shipped. In the UK, the playable demo will appear on PC Gamer before any other mag.
Any more queries, feel free to email me
Cheers,
Matt Pierce

Hi guys (been lurking here for ages, never have time to post)

The file you are looking for on Morpheus is called: uk_final mix.mov that is unless those who have put it up have changed the name. It is exactly 93,927 KB. I would offer to share it myself, but unfortunately I am at uni so it aint really an option. I can tell you that it is full of almost all new footage (I took the comments from PCGUK to mean that it would just be a higher res. and longer version of last weeks trailer) It includes long 5-15 second 1st person perspective shots of Kyle messing about gunning stormtroopers, along with quite a bit of multiplayer lightsaber deathmatch stuff (and some very good AT-ST action). All in all V. Good. :)

Gordon.

Well, I could do the community a favor. I have a server 24/7, so if someone mail me (stein@firstmultimediagroup.com) about how he/she can give me the 90+MB trailer, I'll be glad to share it :D

02-14-2002, 10:58 AM
So the file is called "uk_final mix.mov"

Ok of us who can d/l it we should drop it in our shared folder when done so all can enjoy



thx.

btw I have 20% d/led right now and it has taken around 15 minutes.


It's a .mov (Quicktime File) Big Surprise......


EDIT it stopped d/ling at 26%, looks like whoever was hosting it logged off for a while, but that is why morpheus is so nice, as soon as they log back it auto resumes.

btw I will open 5 slots when it is complete and host it under a different name, I'll let you guys know if it ever completes.

ps2maddenman, you should click "Find More sources for Download". That should speed up things a little bit, if someone else also have same file in their "My Shared Folder". BTW, when it's finished, it takes often some time to appear there, so don't worry if you don't find it instantly.

Hey Lord Finnson I tried finding more sources and nothing came up, I think whoever posted it needs to come online again, as soon as I have it I will share with all.

btw with the copyright thing, it is a trailer (not a program) and as long as you aren't selling it I think you are ok with the Fair trade act. Trailers are free downloads as soon as pc Gamer UK posts them, they have no say and can't prosecute anyone for downloading it because they post on thier site for download. Correct me if I am mistaken.

you can view it as its downloading, at least i always can with mpgs..


you have to have downlaod accelerator plus (what i use i dunno if it works with other progs...) anyway, set it to work automatically inside IE blah blah blah...then once you are downloading the movie, you have to go to the theater and then hit play and it will bring up a download accelerator plus window....in it will be a url ...cant remember what the url looks like, but copy and paste that into quicktime (in the enter url not enter file part) and then it should allow you to view it...)

now, i dunno if this works for .mov files, but it works for .avi and .mpg movies for me....

Lord_FinnSon
02-14-2002, 12:01 PM
now, i dunno if this works for .mov files, but it works for .avi and .mpg movies for me....
It can play mov files; it opens up another window to show them.
EDIT: Like I said, you can speed up downloading in Morpheus clicking "Find More Sources for Download". Then it tries to find another users and downloads parts of the file from everyone of them. BUT they do have to be online AND share files with other Morpheus members(you can disable it in the Options menu, under Traffic).

ps2maddenman

I put the file up on Morpheus yesterday, but it seems people are having problems downloading it (probably due to the dodgy connection on my end.)

I think the best bet is for me to email it to someone with spare web space, then they can post the URL here and we'll all be happy. If you have the space available, send an email to ukdag69@hotmail.com and I'll reply with the file attached.

Btw: Last time I was in the States PCG: UK was available all over the place, you should be able to track down a copy somewhere...

Hi,

I am currently uploading it (13% and counting) to Magnum2's server. It was quite slow to begin with and we were going to give up on it, but things have speeded up now.

I am hungry and bored, the reason I am doing this? I know very much (being in the UK) what it is like when something is released and I don't get a look near it. Why publishers ect. can't just release things on a world wide basis is beyond me.

Now 15%, slowly but surely . . .slowly but surely.

To Bill, Federico and whom it may concern,

My account has a 1024k limit on attachments, so the email route is out of the window. I don't know whats wrongs with Morpheus, somebody was downloading the file last night, then stopped (my connections been all over the place the last few days, which might explain it.)

There is another option though. A mate of mine has a website and I assume plenty of space. I'm gonna go round there with the CD and see if he'll upload it temporarily. If he does, I'll come back here and give you the URL. I think he has a scanner as well, so I can scan the six review pages straight out of the magazine and upload them on the website (this is probably illegal, but what the hell.)

Six weeks till the UK release, I'm counting the days...

Magnum2
02-14-2002, 03:29 PM

He wasn't in, so I dropped it through his letterbox with a note. The site is www.dafatmonkey.com. The file should be on there by tommorrow.

You all owe me, all this running around doing favours means I have to pick up my girlfriend and make it to the restaurant (a three-quarter hour total trip in good traffic) by 9pm (giving me exactly eighteen minutes). I could really use 'Force Speed' with this one...

1. A 92% by PC Gamer UK for a beta is DAMN good.

2. I'm really suprised to see that you can drive vehicles, or control R5 and Mousebots... LEC said there are no vehicles to drive. I wonder, is this really true? I doubt LEC would lie about their own game. I have a feeling YOU made that up. Anyone else that can back it up?

3. PC Gamer US will probably give it more like a 95%. The highest US rating was 98% for Alpha Centauri, Half-Life and Civilization II only got 97%. The original JK got a 94%.

ghedley
02-14-2002, 04:11 PM
I can happily back that up. It says that your perspective changes as you take control of the mousebot etc.

I too am skeptical though as LEC said nothing would be controllable. But could PCG really just make something like that up?

Hi Ps2, (sorry I didn't respond to your PM, as you can guess I have been a bit busy tonight!!)

I am using a small FTP program called RFTP. I discovered it a good few years ago for use of FTP on restricted systems (here at uni. on W2K need admin status to do proper installs etc.) It may not be the fastest (though some of the data drops appear to be due network traffic at both ends, but it is a nice small little FTP'er which doesn't crash or run a load of complicated side options.

as ghedley said, there is a possibility of a glitch. I sincerely believe that don't, but there is.

Woohoo, it's downloading, almost 1% lol, but seriously, when it completes I am going to change the name and post under morpheus for all of us, if the next person gets it they can drop it in their Morpheus shared folder and so on, then whoever d/ls from Morpheus will have more sources to get the file which translates into mega speed!!

THX



btw Only 6 hours & 53 minutes to go!! hehe


EDIT: now it says 8 hours, oh well, I'd be happy if it was 24 hours.


1.9 kb/sec, boy reminds me of those 56k days.

I can scan in the article tomorrow afternoon, but to be perfectly honest (I have only had a skim at the article as I have had a busy day!), there doesn't seem to be a huge amount of new info (not compared to a 90Mb video anyway). Out of the whole article I could only spot one new screenshot.

Some importnat info would be the Sys. Req. (which I would imagine PCGUK would estimate), they were Minimum: PII300, 64MB Ram, and a 3D card. Reccommended was PII(or III, not sure)400, 128MB Ram, and a 32MB graphics card.

As I say I haven't actually read the whole article yet, but I don't expect anything else 'groundbreaking', apart from the only big thing that was in it which was the Drivables Etc.

I guess it is area to area, I called 4 Barnes and Nobles and about 6 other misc book stores where I live and none carry PC Gamer UK, I think you can get it from here:

TUS_Tomcat, you should configure DAP to match your settings, you can do that by activating the "downloads" drop-down menu and selecting "options/configurations".
There's an "advanced" option in there that tells DAP to shutdown the PC after the download has finished, looks like I'm now 'forced' to actually use that feature.

Maybe I'll type the whole article?

BTW I've also heard rumors that the UK will be getting the full game before the US?

From PC Gamer's March 1998 Edition

Among the hundreds of new games we play each year, only an elite few can lay claim to greatness. On the following pages, you'll find those that, in our opinion, achieved such heights in 1997. Gaming greats, we salute you...

Game of the Year:
Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II - Lucas Arts

At the start of the year, the idea of a 3D shooter winning 1997's most prestigious gaming award was a laughable prospect - where was there to go beyond Quake, after all? Well, Jedi Knight answered that question in style, and for pushing back the boundaries of 3D gaming excellence way beyond what had previously been thought possible, and setting a new high watermark for 1998's crowded batch of 3D action games to live up to, it deservedly runs away with our award for 1997's Game of the Year at a comfortable pace.
Runner Up: Longbow 2 - Jane's Combat Simulations

Runner Up: Quake II - id Software

Runner Up: The Curse of Monkey Island - Lucas Arts


10 Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II Reviews:

Source Score Max Average

PC Gamer 94 out of 100 81
Computer Gaming World
4.5 out of 5 3.5
Gamespot 8.8 out of 10 7.6
GameCenter 9 out of 10 8
Adrenaline Vault 5 out of 5 3.5
Gamepower 4 out of 4 3
Computer Games 4.5 out of 5 3.5
Game Pen 4.5 out of 5 4
Intelligamer 4 out of 5 4
Gamezilla 85 out of 100 85

sniff, when i left it i ahd hoped it might speed up a little during the night, and reach at least 30% by morning, but i turn on the screen after sleeping, and, ERROR< lost connect with server, DAP says...


that happened at 9% so most of the night it did nothing... now its going even slower (was 1.2 kb a sec, now 0.5) and i dont know if il let it stay on or just say screw it.

maybe theyll sell Pcgamer k where i live today! if so ill try and get a FAST mirror up :)

OK I have the Magazine in front of me now and have only had time to take a quick look. Most of the screenies are ones we've seen before but I haven't had time to read the full article yet. Unfortunately I'm at work now for another 8 hours so I won't see the New trailer until I get home. It looks cool though and if no-one from across the pond has got it by then I will try my hardest to distribute it to all. Got to go now and do some work I will read the whole thing in my lunch break and report any unknown news back here.

Till Next time.

Almost all new footage indeed, but still think I prefer the official site's trailer. It's 2min 21 as you know, but literally only a few pixels wise bigger in terms of resolution...

30 secs of annoying intro text once again :)

In the first scene it looked like the laser blasts were going right through the Stormtroopers, but I know I'm being picky and more annoyed with how it didn't seem like once the blasts hit their victims, they didn't pack any real "punch"...

Repeated death sounds for Stormtrooper deaths soon after was a bit cringe worthy...

There was a Stormtrooper kneling to fire at Kyle which was nice...

Then some multiplayer action, or at least I assume it was, coz Kyle ran past the player viewpoint :)

Nice coloured glows of the different coloured lightsabres...

N i c e spinning force jump...

Love how the Stormtroopers FLY when you hit them with your sabre...

Nice sabre throwing - esp. how one time it missed the Gran (?) on the way out but caught him on the way back :)

Loved both appearances of the AT-STs...

As always, nice scorch marks on the walls from sabre...

Nice side rolling when with sabre in a many person duel... but am still curious as to how the sabre control really works and how much more than a key-hacking session it'll be :)

There was some slow-mo at the end when Kyle kills someone with a lightsabre - I would say it's Force Speed but coz the guy just died, and the camera spins around Kyle (a la when leaving him still for a while in JK1), I'd say it's something that happens when you either kill another lightsabre wielding dude, or maybe he was a boss???

All in all I'm still going to buy the game, just still have questions as to how it'll play out :) Maybe I should read the review first!

02-15-2002, 07:19 AM
"only a littel bigger? thats impossible!"

True but not true.

I don't have acess to proper Quicktime, so had to play it through a browser plugin, so the resolution was the same as the other trailer. But I would happily imagine (@ 94Mb it would HAVE to be) that it will play full screen proper resolution if played through quicktime properly (Uni. have it installed but something with the files are knackered, so it wont play)

Hey guys, quick update, I am at 65% as of this morning and it said around 8-9 hours left, that means I should have it all around 7PM EST, I am posting on Morpheus first (hopefully you guys will support this program as the more people who have the file in their shared folder = better d/l speed for the next person, i've gotten some files at 160.5 kb/s because 40+ people have it and Morpheus adds all of the transfer rates together.....anyways you see where I am going with this.) Also I've been thinking about opening 2 ports on Morpheus instead of 5 so that those who are d/ling from me can get the file withing a fairly reasonable amount of time, when those two people d/l it, I will open up a couple of more ports hoping that those who just d/led it from me are now sharing too in Morpheus (It's all about teamwork)

17% here lol


Sigh, girls working at book stores are fo no use... Let me explain the situation:

I live in a fairly small town (11.000 inhabitants) and the main local store does not sell PCGamer UK... I still went to check it out but they didnt have it, I did pick up the latest Air Forces Monthly (a UK mag, mind you)

Right, so, at 17 km away, is a bigger city (50.000 + at least) and i KNOW they sell the PC Gamer UK at various points... If i want to go there, i'll have to buy a train ticket, so if they don have it there et, its kind of a waste. I decide to call first:

Get some girl / young woman on the phone: I explain the deal, or try to

Well, she goes away and says she found one, but its the february one, well i ask here whats on the front, uhh, a war game, title? i ask... Return of Castle ..... wolfenstein, she adds

Hmmmmmm, thats probably the US version i figure, since i recall seeing a pic on the pcgamer UK site with unreal tournament 2 on the front of last issue.

I decide, ok, she's probably way confused if i start telling her about a US version, so i just ask: How long, do you think, does it take for a UK mag, if its released TODAY in the UK, to come over here?

uhhhhh, she goes away and asks, comes back, 1 to 2 weeks, she says.

i say: hmmm, well, kthxbye

j/k no i say well ill look around sometime then




Remember when i mentioned air force monthly, new one, which i picked up? I checked in the one before this one, and in the back it said, next issue, february 14th, YESTERDAY, and i picked the new one up TODAY (and it MIGHT have beent here yesterday, i wasnt there then)

Moral of the story, DO I GO BY TRAIN OR NOT ?!?!?!

ARGH!!!
