2000 Games: MIA
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Wired has posted their annual article listing, in ther opinion, the top 10 'vaporware' items missing in action from the year 2000. As the year closes, four games made it onto the list, including Tribes 2 at #10, Warcraft III at #6, Black & White at #3, and Duke Nukem Forever at #2. All of these titles have the possibilitiy of making it to the Mac, though only Warcraft III has been announced as an official Mac title. Here's a clip from the article:

The salivating hordes at E3 were told B&W would be out before the end of the year. But B&W, already a couple of years behind schedule, isn't going to ship this year after all.


"I've developed a simple algorithm for calculating the B&W ship date," wrote Hayden Schultz. "Ship date = current date + 3 months."

While each of the games surely does have good reasons for being delayed, it's a humorous piece and worth a look. Apple's Mac OS X is listed in the #1 spot as the biggest peice of vaporware this year, but you must remember this is coming from a magazine that declared Linux to be the only OS with a future...
