Calm down, morons

The amount of whiners I'm seeing regarding the Wii's U.S. release date (Nov. 19th) and price ($250) is bordering on excruciating. While all these guys have a right to complain, they're griping about how it is launching a few days after the PS3, which is odd since they've been shitting on that system and shouldn't care about it. And the price? Nintendo had said many, many times it would be "no more than $250", and a rule of business is that the maximum promised price is likely the closest to the final one.

I just wanted to get that off my chest quickly. There are some really idiotic posts I've been seeing.

Character Test 1

The first batch of basic poses for some of the main characters in my next series. They're still going to be tweaked here and there, and the one on the very right is actually a one-time-only pose that won't be seen often.

If the Wii's release date isn't announced during this Thursday/Friday batch of press conferences, I'm going to get a bit nervous.

New Stuff

Despite how this has looked throughout summer, I haven't totally forgotten about this blog. College has just gotten in the way of things.

Besides working on Wario Ware Tooned 5, I've started work on an entirely original Flash 'pilot' that I intend to expand into a series. Scriptwriting and casting is done, and character designs are nearly finished and just being polished a bit. I'm trying to come up with a better style for backgrounds- possibly have everything handdrawn in Photoshop and imported in as picture files. Because I'm alternating between both of them, WWT5 will probably take a while to be released, but only about 20 people really seem to care so it won't affect the Internet as a whole.

Random game note: Star Fox Command is actually very addicting and is a worthy entry in the series. It makes up for Assault and almost for Adventures, but the fanbase will have to fix their own problems.
