Yeah, I just realized it is probably a bad idea to joke about something like the release of G3 in this forum... :P

Just be happy that Jeff doesn't fall in with other software producers and say the game is due in 'Q1 2005' or some other crap like that. If he says March, it means March.

Or early April.

I may come across sounding more official then I actually am. Or not.

Today. That way we have the weekend to play the demo and Monday to make tons of orders and the whole week to play and not do any work (must start to think of excuses to skip work, btw.)

Or. . . Monday/Tuesday so during the week, where free time is more difficult to come by we can play the demo and the order it before the weekend and do a marathon, play it all the way through so we can finish it up by early April and then start clamoring for G4 when will it come out!?!

Or, it's actually been out for about a months, in pirated places. These people are packaging the game under a different name and selling it like crazy in Nambia where GF (actually under the assumed name it has there) is not only a national pastime, but the government there is using it, seriously, as a pattern for their future state.

I just don't know.

But I'm fairly certain that before I get to see Monsieur Vader rising I will have seen the answers to all these questions, many more, and quite a few new new unaswered ones.

(I also think "Kingdom of Heaven" is going to spark certain controversy which will help it get a strong first week (maybe two weeks) until it completely plunges down. Critics will love it, though. They sure dig that Malick fellow.
(Icshi: Hah! Another person likes Monk Hah! Although I liked it better with his old assistant. I hate SG. Shivers)

Well, it didn't come out today. As is the case with real elections, I cast my vote for nothing.

According to something I read somewhere on this board, when the forum for the new game comes out, it's two days or less until the game comes out. I'm betting that's probably work days, so since the forum apparently appeared today, we can probably expect GF3 to be out by Wednesday of next week.

Well, here the forums generally come into being at some point during Mac beta-testing, and in this case, close to the end of it.

Yes, my mental heatlh has already begun taking the turn for the worst. I was really expecting GF3 today. :( Now it'll be Monday at the earliest. Soon the graemlins ( :D ) will complete their conquest of my posts, and my communiques will be rendered nothing more than bad immitations of Marcel Marceau. :P

Doctor's note: This is Icshi's personal physician. I apologize for any ungeltmanly behavior on my pateint's part. Be assured that we have him under close observation, but recognize the good done by letting him give occasional vent to his feelings in order to prevent any unfortunate incidents here at the clinic. We're on a tight budget as it is, and any unpleasantness such as walls being punctured, matresses set on fire, etc., would adversely affect the amount of my Christmas bonus. (I'm depending on this bonus to pay off my heavy gambling debts and finance my escape to Barbados.) We all expect the situation to imrpove some time next week. Until then, just humor him and don't maintain eye contact with him for longer than 5 seconds. Thank you for your cooperation.

Icshi: Ah.. Well, my conclusion was based on the fact that most of the postings occurred today. I figured the small remnants that weren't had been transferred.

And if you're going to kill me, first you're going to have to find me. I kinda just moved away from my old home. If you manage that, kindly kill me quickly. No dismemberment or gutting allowed.

I bet GF3 will come out Wednesday, because I'll be out of town Thursday through Sunday. :( It's a conspiracy, I tell you.

And no, Silver Shadow, I'm not going to hurt anyone. All this waiting and despair has sucked the lifeforce out of me. :o Besides, my mom won't let me use those knives for anything but slicing up blocks of spam.

Well, faithful believers, don't lose your faith on Forge Friday yet. We still have a few hours until Midnight.

Tweet tweet tweet.

And just think, we could be talking about Venus days here. :P

For the record, Jeff is in Seattle, Washington, where it is currently 6:36 PM. Do your calculations-to-midnight based on that.

Also, early next week is looking likely.

Not me, man. I live far from Ohio, but I like the Pretenders song about as well as Neil Young's if that's any consolation. And I've known a couple of people who spent time there. I've also driven through the state. But that's as close as my contact with Ohio gets. Sorry.

Next week it is, then. I was hoping for a weekend thingy, but week day works just as fine.

Man, the screenshots look cool indeed. I love the way the island looks. And the fact that we have some islands will make the game, I think, flow more nicely than the other two (though I liked them too).

I also noticed there are new graphics for the areas, I mean the little square thingies on the island.

"Ha, double-ha, with knobs on!" Icshi laughed bitterly.

In other words, not likely. Monday at the earliest. :(

I feel like stabbing something, but the last time I tried that, my Swiss army knife closed on my finger.

That hurt like a motherhumper. :eek: Therefore, I shall stab no more forever. :(

Monday... I estimate that at least half of this forum will be institutionalized by Monday. The rest will be in jail for attempting to stab people who make jokes about Geneforge 3.

Thank you, Ornk of Death, for one of those perfect poems the internet occasionally serves up. In its honor, I too pledge to leave all stabbing to the professionals who know better how to handle their Swiss army knives. (The Swiss army, for example.) Preach on, brother.
