of course there's an influx of 3DS-related coverage at the moment, all building up to the eventual western release of the console, but if not much is happening Wii-wise, not much is happening. it'll all go back to normal again after a while, i'm sure.

And yes, I'm aware that store credit isn't cash, but I'm planning on putting the money towards the 3DS, so store credit is fine.

ah, okay. in that case, if i were you i'd give it a couple days and then trade it in just in case someone on craigslist actually bites at your offer — i'd probably even change the ad and require that it be paid for in full and picked up by the 5th. that way you know you've definitely got something for it and no one'll back out on the agreement a day or two later and make you miss out on GameStop's deal.

from the sound of your post and subsequent comments, you're making it seem as if you need actual money for something... you realize that $100 from GameStop isn't going to be cash, right?

@Tbd
We're honestly not complaining just to complain. I'm not that kind of guy, and as someone who absolutely adores Cave Story, I want to like this game. I see potential, but I don't see anything that should/reasonably could be released to the public by June.

and again, i'd be genuinely surprised to see this game hit before next June, much less within this year's launch window, haha. there's all kinds of stuff that could go down within that timeframe. still gonna give 'em the benefit of the doubt. :3

also, Corbie informed us in chat this morning that Tyrone told him those screenshots were from a couple months ago. take that as you will.

Riddles don't always follow the logic. Just bear in mind. You confuse yourself by going in-depth, all logical and calculative, when in reality, it's just a simple right-in-front-of-you answer. Of course, I may be totally wrong, but I'm just saying.

i agree with this -- you're getting too in-depth. it might not be wholly correct, but if you're talking 2D shapes, the teardrop fits the general 'one corner, one side' description (if you ignore Chicken Brutus' suggestion of inside and outside, lol) :3

@QubicGames: we get that you're here representing your games and all, and that's great, but yelling at our users for calling it as they see it isn't kosher. just relax for now, and if your game's actually as different as you say, it'll speak for itself when it hits. :3

what's the matter with those screenshots? a shader or two or an added texture is all they'd need to pop, and remember -- a 2D shot of a 3D anything is going to miss one whole dimension of visual information. i'm starting to think you guys are complaining just for the sake of complaining on this one.

Fair point, but I'm not sure why they'd be releasing screen shots if they weren't at least somewhat happy with them.

i was thinking that perhaps they're trying to show that the game is actually being worked on, and those screenshots are kinda where it stands so far. i keep thinking back to WindWaker and the in-progress shots that showed up before they finalized the style they wound up using. i can't speak for the devs, though, and idk what kind of PR department troubles they may or may not be having at the moment, so we don't know what the deal is for sure, i guess.

There has definitely been a thread about this exact topic before.

And it's a Starfox Thread of all things.

meh, it's been almost a year. depending on the thread (and the OP) in question, a year is about where i draw the line with regards to turning a blind eye to a dupe thread. can't wait for the eventual NL forum upgrade, hopefully complete with merge function.

that said, it took me nearly a decade to finally sit through The Rocky Horror Picture Show without falling asleep halfway into it (usually i'd conk out after the 'touch me' song). it's not that it's a bad movie -- it's certainly a cult classic for a reason -- but my mistake was always trying to watch it alone. it took a movie marathon at a friend's house with eight or nine other people yelling stuff at the screen to keep me awake through it, haha. it's a helluva good time with friends around :3

as for seriously bad movies, though... The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was horrible. I swear to god i fell asleep in the theater and completely missed the second half of the movie. wound up reading the book afterward, and it was much more interesting.
