On September 18th 2002 MiGMan interviewed Scott Lee and checked out the beta.
MiGMan: Cross platforming? Any plans for an X-box release?
Scott Lee: No. No plans for that. This is a PC title. It's an important franchise for Microsoft. It highlights the graphical capabilities of the today's PC systems.
With the ATI and the Geforce cards.... the lighting effects, particle effects, they just make the game sparkle. Also we're running at 1600 x 1200 resolution... compare that to a television!
MiGMan: What about the difficulty settings for newcomers? We've already seen the 'invulnerable' setting.
Scott Lee: You can change the realism settings, set 'black-outs' or 'no black-outs', give yourself unlimited weapons...
MiGMan: I always do that!
Scott Lee: Yep sometimes you're in the mood where... noone can conquer you.

MiGMan: 3 rockets is never enough!
Scott Lee: Well we don't even have radar in these!
MiGMan: We need all the help we can get!
That leads to another question...
