The game was a mess and games would last ridiculously long. It would end up being long range stalemates because the Hammerburst was ridiculously OP and would 3 shot anyone. The game had a terrible netcode so host had an even bigger advantage than in 1.

I don't see how anyone can like Gears 2. While it does some things better than 3, it's not even close. 2 also had the worst maps of the trio.

Agreed with all of the above. This was a game that had all the polish in place for a sequel, all the "new" stuff, and almost all of it just served to undermine what was great about the first one. It's one of the best examples I can think of that shows how sequels always striving to be bigger does not always mean better.

Gears 1 was one of the best shooters I've ever played online. Not in terms of fairness, or eSports playability, or the most creative modes. It was a game where it was fun and intense to shoot people. It had all the ingredients to make you laugh and yell at strangers on the Internet.

Gears 2 is mostly defined to me as sitting around waiting 10 minutes for matchmaking to finish, then getting into a game where nobody was talking while we took potshots at each other or maybe tripped over a grenade that stunned you for two seconds and cut off all your momentum for no good reason. What a stupid game.

Alright, so that points us in a good direction for some of this other stuff.

KoF is what I have my hopes up for. I'm going to assume Halo is MS testing what they can do with Steamworks for the sake of exploring it. Another FFVII with no guarantee of showing up anytime soon on Steam, even if there is a PC version out there somewhere. KoF already being a windows PC game at least makes that seem realistic.

Dunno why these people use the real names anywhere. Hasn't the history of the registry as well as all the PartnerNet leaks taught developers anything?

Gears 2 was alright in singleplayer, Gears 3 was pretty awful. I'd play Gears 2 again on insane but have no desire to go back to #3.

Happens all the time, though some games take forever to actually come out and some still haven't been released yet.

I'm not sure what you could have done differently though. I imagine if it was as easy as submitting a false name into the registry other developers would have started doing so by now. Seems like even with a fake name the community links in this new registry site would have given you away.

It seems that this time wasn't entirely your fault, as the game was ValveTestApp on the registry, it seems that a bug(or feature) on the community was the problem lol

And it has happened to too many developers lol

I would love to play your game! LSD without LSD!

No, Dyad was actually in as Dyad. But the point is well taken that even if it wasn't, he'd have still had the whistle blown.

Sorry brother, but this particular leak would have got you even if you did the ValveTestApp thing :/

You should still do the trailer and big announcement thing, though! Get Wario64 to pimp you on Twitter, that'll generate some buzz.

Alan Wake, I am Alive and others were spotted like this. And Alan Wake turned to be quite a success. And a day one purchase for me. At least to me this kind of reveals actually build quite the hype.

I'm already locked-in to get Dyad day one on PC, having no consoles since like 10 years ago.

Not your fault but the peeps who are essentially glued to the registry file trying to unveil the future releases.

Not your fault. Leaks from the registry happen fairly often, but this time it was a new loophole because of the community pages being linked to registry entries.

You can still do the whole official trailer/announcement thing. I think your game will do fine on Steam anyway. :)

If MS properly supported PC gaming with games like Forza, Banjo Kazooie, and the Halo franchise I wouldn't be so ready to abandon the Windows platform all together. As it is I hope everyday for another OS to emerge that can replace Windows so I can be done with MS.

Nope, Tecmo doesn't like money. I think there was a DOS version from the original game though.

I'd pay full price for both if they release them on PC. And I already have all the console versions...

I'm kinda surprised nobody from Valve contacted you about the issue. I mean, you named it "Dyad" anyway, but the community page problem is what outed so many games (even those with TestApp titles) this time around.

Like I mentioned in the other thread, you could've just stayed mum. So many of these registry leaks have happened in the past, including on PartnerNet for the 360, and not all of the games have come out. So for most people it still would've had the same impact as a fresh announcement. So even if you somehow get outed on a future game, just stay quiet and announce it on your own terms anyway; after all, we're still waiting on a Steam release of Planescape: Torment and Final Fantasy VII. ;)

Sucks that the Dyad leak was legit and a full reveal was ruined.

As for Halo 3 PC, I don't care what he says, I still have hope. It just means they're not doing the port and it could be another developer. Microsoft had Gearbox do CE and had Hired Gun do Halo 2 Vista.

Elsewhere, Fez creator Phil Fish simply responded to my query with a simple, "no comment for now!" response, but given that Fish has said he'd like to make Fez multiplatform, the Steam version seems very likely.
