    The long wait has been due to id having to completely scrap an older version of the remake and start over. Closed-door demos are always to keep the critics happy. It actually keeps them alive and kicking, gives them something to write about and sell mags/pull-in site visitors. In an age where every video preview is posted on free streaming sites, you can’t blame the game critics for making sure they get their scoop…and you can’t blame id for helping them out.

    After supporting them we get slapped in the face by having to wait months for a beta and then reveal for attendees only!?
