Okay... let me just try to quickly address something that seems to be a topic of discussion over the past couple days.

Garry Gaber posts over at TFN ... the other day... then gives an interview with SWS.Net ... and people are concerned that he is not paying enough attention to GB.Com.

First off, just because GB.Com hosts the "Premier Forums" ... doesn't mean that Garry won't be posting on other sites like TFN .. or doing interviews with SWS.Net, or any other gaming site ..etc... it's only natural to spread the word in different areas... just enjoy the new information we're getting.. no matter where it comes from.

Second, don't worry about Garry's involvement on here... or the rest of his team... you can expect Garry to start posting here more frequently in the very near future... as in multiple times per week... but we can't go into details on that issue.. just trust us on that.

I was told we were to get some new info this past Friday... and I know Garry was working on a post for you guys... late Friday.. but something must have come up... probably just ran a bit late over at the Skywalker Ranch.. and I'm sure we'll see Garry here Monday.. so just hold tight and enjoy the info we're getting. :)

Ok, we'll try to be patient. It's just hard seeing him go to other boards and not say one word over here for the longest time. :(
BTW Aristotle, I think you have some bounties on your head ;)

i think so kvan. ;)

Anyways, i guess we can wait another day, he doesn't even have to come here at all. It is just frustrating staying up really late and then him not even showing up, oh well. Thanks for the info Aristotle.

Yeah, I thought it would have been nice if SOMEONE came on and told us he is not coming :(

i hear you on that kvan. anyhow, i'm getting this feeling that the game is going to come out around christmas instead of thanksgiving weekend, so it's pretty tough to be patient about this.

Yup, I'm hearing them say BEFORE 2002 now, not Thanksgiving like they used to :(

well, Thanksgiving is before 2002, and they said that they were still on schedule so it may still come out around Thanksgiving.

Yeah, it'll still come out before Christmas unless something really bad happens like a bounty hunter got Garry Gaber.:) :fett:

BTW Gaming company always say they are on schedule, even when they know they are not.

Money, demand for the game, money, waisted time (some games) money, pressure from their publisher to get the ball rolling, and money.:D

Well it'd atleast be nice if they put a set release date on the GBG it supposed come out in a few more months.

I'd rather have it come out late, then come out early and be a horrible or unfinished game(or horribly unfinished). Look at Blizzard, the undisputed king of delays. All of its projects get delayed, but how many of them were great successes?(even if you don't like the games yourself). In the long run the delays aren't necissarilly bad things.

*whistles* Wow, that was uncharacteristically(sp?) lengthy and serious for me.....scary

Maybe, but how much can they screw up now? I mean, they are practically at Beta already. It would take alot to mess this one up now.

Once you get past prime time you can pretty much be sure he's not coming on that night. It just takes a little common sense;)

I'm pretty sure it'll come out before christmas. Whether it's finished or not....

Oh, yes, it WILL come out before christmas, probably in late-October. But I'd rather have a better game then a rushed game. For now, just be patient...:yoda:

I'm pretty sure Gaber has his hands more than full until beta-stage. after that, it's touching up the product and making it bug-free. which leaves him with a little more time to get the word out and 'hang' with us here at the boards.

I really hope that Gaber makes it this time. I just hope I have time to ask my questions before he leaves. Someone should definately ask when the demo is coming out! :D

Does Gaber really do any programming or artwork? I don't think he does. Doesn't he just supervise stuff? He most likely could easily take off 30 minutes to answer a few questions from his loyal fans. Don't take that wrong, he does alot of work i'm sure, but that workload is probably alot lighter now that the management stuff is done, and they are just polishing up the game, right?

Yeah, I would think that all the major stuff is done on the game. They didn't have to create a new game engine, so everything should be pretty much done (I hope). Lets hope he drops by soon ;)
