i forget, was there a mono/stereo option for this game? if you've got it set to stereo with a TV with only one speaker, the missing sound FX could be being routed to the speaker that isn't there.

i don't recall this game having separate volume controls for BGM/sound FX, but if they're there, that could be something to check as well. same for your sound setup, make sure all your cables are attached securely depending on what kind of sound system you're running from your TV :3

So in your eyes, it's not the same as sending the game?

sending the game itself, whether via gift or a physical review copy... it's not money. i think that's where CB was going with it, anyway, lol. even having them send you the code for a points card probably would've been preferable to them sending you the money to purchase one, y'know?

for some reason, Z never worked well for me. I just had to settle down and get a hang of doing it on my own. crossing off the names of those special enemies from the lists and some of the longer sequence brushstroke events were absolute hell, lemme tell ya D: but it gets easier with practice.

i will say that if you're sitting too close to the TV screen, it'll screw you up almost every time -- if you find that you keep having issues, try taking a step away from the screen and seeing how that works for you.

@SKTTR: some companies provide review copies of games for free. not all, but some. why should them essentially giving out a review copy mean that you should turn around and give their game a better score than a game from a dev who was unwilling or unable to provide a review copy (or reimbursement for one)? that's not fair to anyone.

that said, he brings up a good point -- you do have the option to deny a payment, don't you? or you at least had access to their paypal e-mail address to refund them the extra money. why did you keep it in the first place? and why continue to keep the extra after they filed a dispute? keeping what it took to pay for the game is one thing, but keeping the entire amount... i think that's what bothers me the most about this ordeal. :/

this.

on perhaps a more forgiving note, however, you could allow them to try and play the game on their own for a while. let 'em sink or swim without the pressure of having to defeat friends in multiplayer, y'know? :3

you would not believe how common it is for devs to put shills out to trash a middling-to-poor review and talk up the game everywhere they can. it's kinda hilarious, really.

Agreed.

I despise Coldplay, though, so I'll just spread the rumor as often as I can that they intentionally stole it.

considering that they already stole it from one person, that dude would have to have stolen the Starman theme, not them. i'm not up for slinging mud at the one dude over this, lol; he's had enough problems thanks to this song :/
