This can't be reiterated enough. It took them five *years* to get MTGO 3.0 out. Five years for a major version bump that didn't really have any new functionality, and was actually missing a lot of the old functionality at launch. Half Life 2 was made in less time than that, with a compelling narrative and excellent graphics. MTGO is a 2D card game with e-commerce bolted on. I don't even know how that's even possible. Did they only have one programmer? Did they hire a team that had to spend the first four years getting a CS degree?

It's obviously a long, long way from being even beta quality but fans are rejoicing that they finally have something of the cancelled project to see for themselves. Bethesda have also given Fallout fans something to look forward to by announcing that a teaser video of their own interpretation of Fallout 3 will be released in 33 days time."
