Doom 3/Halo 2/Half-life 2 - Why Tuesday releases?
As I'm sitting here of a Friday night, waiting for a last minute process to finish so I can sign off work for the weekend (I am at home, thankfully), and I'm realizing it's going to be a quiet weeking because I don't have anything ready to play.
I've finished Doom 3, I didn't buy Halo 2 cause I didn't like the first one, and never got excited about FPS on consoles (except for Metroid, for some reason) I do have Half-life 2 preloaded and pre-purchased on my system, so I'm ready to play, and I have to wonder, why in the world do all these major video game releases come out on Tuesdays? Why not Thur, or Friday, or even Sat, when you can hunker down, and really enjoy it, and not have to stumble in to work or school bleary eyed the next day. Especially all these big 1st day (0 day, as crackers would put it) releases...
I've never understood it... It's not like Video Games have consistent street dates, like videos and music do (which is Tuesday) When a new Harry Potter novel comes out, that at least comes out on a Saturday so no one has to play hookey...
Ah well, see everyone next tuesday (or maybe not), maybe I'll play a little of the original Half Life since I've got it with my Half Life Silver Package (Even though I'll have Half Life: Source in a few days) Or maybe just read a good book
