@Raylax: a 'series' in terms of a TV show is only used interchangeably with the word 'show'. For example, 'House' is a 'TV show' or a 'TV series', 'I think House is a great show' or 'I think House is a great series', either usage is acceptable. the term 'series finale' is only ever used for the very last episode of a television series, and depending on how popular the series in question was ratings-wise it may be a major TV event, lol. that's why i say i get what that particular user was trying to say with the analogy even though he was factually incorrect, to an uninformed person it may seem like a running in-joke whenever Jeremy says something about it being the 'series finale', like they're pretending to expect the show not to be picked up for another season (though it's so awesome none of us can see that happening :3)

As for seasons, a 'season' can be a full 20-26 episodes, it can be split into halves of 10-13 episodes with a month or three hiatus in between, it can be the first few episodes that were released in the same year and then followed by full, regular seasons after the show was picked up by some random network (Mythbusters is a show with a strange first season like that iirc). a normal 'season' is the year's run of episodes for a given TV series, though, and during the season they'll be shown at the same time each week except for the occasional special event (like during the Olympics, other channels may just show reruns or recap shows so that first-run episodes aren't trying to compete, lol). :3

Nintendo is probably my favorite. I grew up with Nintendo consoles, and though I've dallied with the competition, I always wind up going back to a Nintendo console. It's nothing personal, just that my financial resources are limited and if it's my money being spent, i generally prefer what Nintendo has to offer in the long run.

There, now I've said it too. This isn't the first time I've watched the same group of people dogpile onto the same user, and I'd appreciate if that behavior stopped — debate him all you want, but the macros and snide remarks are not necessary regarding the topic at hand.

@emaan: Depending on which ending you go for, it's entirely possible for there to be a sequel :3 if they do go that route, i'd hope there will be some way to connect your data from the original game into the sequel so that you can maybe unlock some special scenes or characters :3

I didn't even know you could rename weapons.

This is going to be great.

btw just in case anyone else didn't know you could rename weapons, at the 'forge' screen, you can select the weapon's name and it'll give you the option to change it. :3

btw, idk if anyone else has ever tried it, but did you know that if you try to rename a weapon something naughty (e.g. featuring profanity, for example), the game will warn you that the custom name will not display on someone else's 3DS if you StreetPass them and ask you if you want to still name it that anyway? I thought it was kinda neat that Nintendo chose to do it that way instead of having the same old 'you can't use that name, pick something else' line. :3

This is probably like Jermemy saying this is the end of the series at the end of each season of Top Gear.

actually, TV show 'seasons' are known as 'series'es in the UK. If you hear them talking about something that happened in 'series 1', for example, they're talking about something that happened in the first season of the show. i get the point you're trying to make, though (and that also confused me quite a bit before i looked it up a while back, i love me some Top Gear :3)

Saw it today (had actually forgotten it'd hit iTunes already). I liked it, but I feel it kinda went off on a big fat tangent and then right at the end they had to be all 'oh snap let's pull it back together guys' and it didn't quite work... i know the big moral was supposed to be about being okay with yourself and liking the person that you are, but it felt like they rushed through a lot of that process just to cram it all into one movie or something. Definitely no 'Up', I guess, but it was still a lot of fun — Pixar always puts out a damn beautiful movie, and I loved all the cameos (game and food alike, haha, i had not expected Beard Papa at all but it made so much sense). :3

I'm afraid I will have to scrap it and use the assets for a different project, which off course is on hold. I'm sorry that I am not able to commit to this, but I'm sure Emmy will do the better job in making a true sequel that is actually an rpg. In other words, Madness Man is Cancelled. not even a 100,000 men petition over at Facebook can save this.

It would have been cool if ToM 2 and Madness Man were both released, it could start a branching timeline of Madness.

exactly! and then we could've argued about where on the timeline which game fell, it would've been great D:
