I still remember that dark game box, the sweet scent of a freshly printed instruction manual Just to meddle in... That one sentence, made me all nostalgic. There's just something special about a good, old-fashioned box, and a standard manual, with small quotes from the developers and "hidden&q...

never tried it, but depending on how many people in your area, that wants the Wii, I would say you should get there in the middle of night. Maybe something like 3 am or something. But, again, I've never tried it, and don't know anyone who has.

You could just get a new account... you've only got 2 posts :?: Another user had a problem a little similar to this one. When he tried to make a new account, he was told that he couldn't because his email-address was already used by his old account. So, unless he got 2 email-addresses, he might hav...

I suppose there's definitly a market for it, so far the other hacking simulations haven't been near the kind of thing Introversion could pull off. I know quite a bit about an MMO hacking sim called NanoByte Online, which is a pretty good one, nice online and all that, but it's still no Uplink, I re...

Oh, I'll be working through the launch. I won't be able to download the game until I get home at Launch +5 hours. And while office mode is a great idea, it ain't happening on my office's machines I'm afraid. Oh well. You are lucky. I can't play until Sunday evening, maybe even not until Monday morn...

might just be me, being too stupid to know what you guys mean with "Freudian", (heard of him a couple of years, but can't remember it) but when I saw this, I immediately thought of something, that I wouldn't connect with Defcon.

I hope that the CD's will be delivered as soon as the game is released, because I'll be sitting on my island without any internet connection faster than 56k... The game is no bigger than 60 megs. It won't take too long to download, even on 56k. (60 megabytes) / (56 Kbps) = 2.44 hours. Assuming a pe...

Feel like the rest of y'all. Uplink kept me captured for several hours a day, several days a week, several weeks a month. Still, once in a while, I pick it up, and play a couple of missions. Although I haven't tried Darwinina yet (problably gonna play the demo tomorrow or the day after that), I have...

And since you have missed that: two posters in this thread are beta. Perhaps we need dog tags like in the Darwinia forum. :P Yes, please. Would make it alot easier to know "normal mortal" people from the beta-tester, developers and moderators. Although developers are pretty easy to recogn...
