games Posted 2001-09-20 01:19:00 by Jim Crawford
I made an attempt to buy No One Lives Forever yesterday. I was thwarted by the Fox Interactive website, which has the most ridiculous user interface you can imagine (not me, though. I can imagine much worse). After repeatedly being sent and forth between a series of “Pick a platform” and “Pick a product” screens, I managed to get it to tell me that I can't buy the product I'm looking for “for free.”

I was, in fact, willing to part with some amount of money for the game.

I guess now I have to prove it wrong and get a copy from a friend. I hate to deprive the hard workers at Monolith of a sale after they've finally produced a decent game, but it's their own fault for picking such an incompetent distributor. Yeah. That's it.
