Most things that come free with games lately are lame, so lets help out all those marketing folks and let them know what we want.

A free headset? Naaa, they are starting to pile up in my office.

Bumper stickers? Hmmm, a little better.

A UT car emblem? Now that was a great freebie! I still have that one on my truck.

A t-shirt?

A rebate coupon?

?

Its never too early to start thinking and talking about what we want.

I agree that most extra stuff that ships with games is barely worth it...so I don't want extras. Just the game will do.

A decent manual would be great, though...

set of Unreal "phrase" stickers 'megakill', 'headshot!", "miiiiister crow". "eat that!". - awesome

Envy should come in one huge collectors box for insane die hard UT fanactics with the follwing included.

1) A "bloody" good game...
2) A proper tin box not a wrap around..
3) Posters
4) T-shirt ( something intersting not just the logo...as HL2)
5) A book and or DVD of like behind the scenes making of...kind of give an insight to what goes on...

6) A card with a phone number to call if getting this massive package takes longer than "two weeks".

no rebate-coupons (I'd rather have the game cheaper without me having to fill their marketing-database), less bugs, more features, better support for custom content, ...


... and for *beeps* sake let someone write a decent manual for the editors et al. I want one that's at least 100 pages thick so I can use it to hit some sense into people.

Heck ... they should stop calling it a game and rename it to "Unreal Engine Construction Kit (amateur-edition)" ;)

Remember, some of us got our computers a little while ago, like when DVD drives were high priced novelties. Sorta like mine. As such, it has no DVD drive. Yeah I will probably upgrade my computer when UT2006 comes out, but still.

There's nothing wrong with CD's.

I like the UC2 Lauren so much. Its got nice body and cool effects etc.

And if they use it as bots we always can make custom models of it like other modders do just add it on the char script file or something.

And with that sticker VEHICULAR MANSLAUGTER is cool to but maybe you can made these to :2thumb:

Um, ok, if you got your computer way back then, forget upgrading. you'll probably have to get a completely new computer. I suspect it would take 10+ cds to install a game like envy for several reasons, one being that with the normal maps they're baisically doubling the texture sizes for every object in the game. Not to mention the all new physics, higher detailed textures, etc. I'll be suprised if they can get it to fit on less than 3 dvds. Though they might be able to if they used the right kind of dvds.

Oh, and speaking of dvd players, I just got a really nice DVD burner off newegg, and it was really cheap too. It's like the first object in the cd/dvd drives and media section when you tell it to sort by ratings. It was 48.99, and it also had a combo deal on it where you can get a 100 pack of dvd-r's for only 27.00 more. It's on special now, so if you're interested you should check it out. You can find it at http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16827152035

Oh, and dog tags would rule. I'd actually wear one of those.

CDs last time I heard are cheaper than DVD's but The standard these days is a DVD-ROM. so when Envy comes around I'm sure people with either upgrade for it or already have a DVD-ROM.

I upgraded to DVD for UT2004 SE.

I'd rather have 1 dvd over 6 cds anyday, and of course the new UT will take up even more space than UT2k4.
Normal mapped 2048x2048 textures = 8x as much disk space as your standard 1024x1024 texture from UT2k4

I still have all my game cd's, manuals, boxes. Everything. Even from the games I got in the 90s. Everything is intact.

I got UT in 2000. There's nothing missing.

I guess most people are too careless ;Op

(I'm just quoting you Kantham, doesn't mean I imply you're being too careless but I know there are plenty of people who throw their stuff around and it ends up missing..........too bad for them)

It would be awesome if UT3 would ship with a book like this, indeed (or a "with UnrealEd manual" edition). On the other hand, a quality book such as that one has to be agreed upon with a third party vendor...3DBuzz, in this case.

i have that unreal ed book and its amazing, the amount of information in it is great and its helped me learn some of the more advanced things in the ed. and i highly recomend it to any one its a great book. but to ship that with the game is a bit much lol, the book is like 1,000 pages, and most unreal peeps are not mappers so it would be a waste to all of them...although it would be cool if they had something with the game like that for the mappers. but if u ask me i dont need anything shiped with the game, so long as they give me a great game with few glitches. and have it shiped on time and not delyaed like 10 times then i will be more than happy. but if they had to ship something i would like some "matieral" object. something i could hold or display such as those dog tags, or an mini unreal metal statue, or a teeshirt that i could wear with pride (i already got a 2k4 and a 2k7 nvidia/ut promo shirts that i wear, im wearing the 2k4 one as i type this lol).

After looking into the last few games that were just released, I might settle for a plain DVD version that is NOT a special edition or collectors edition or part of any other "value-add" marketing scheme.

I am getting really tired of them adding stuff like a free game that I already played, or some behind the scenes footage that I don't really care to see, bundle it with the game on DVD and then want to charge me an extra ten bucks for the whole package.

I want sumthin' for nuthin' dagnabbit! Especially if they want me to pre-order the game.
