Yeehaw! Our second ‘lil ole game done gone public Beta;
Get yer dogies over! Thar be gold in them thar hills.
(Yep, I need to work on the Cowboy thing)
Grats! We downloaded it and played it at work this morning, need to find the beta feedback forum to give you guys our impressions. Good luck with the cowboy thing, I think the stereotypical monocled english gentleman in a bowler hat and black jacket wielding dual pistols might work just fine.
Not confusing Pirate and Cowboy speak will be my bane. Though I’ve decided the one word that does not need conversion between games is, ‘booched.’ It just works so well.
P.S. I created a syndicated account on Livejournal for your blog so even the lazy ones of us that don’t use RSS readers can keep up with ye.
Arr, I reckon my steed has come down with scurvey, pardner.
We’re number 5 most anticipated and number 1 PC game on 1up! Woo!
Apparently folks are playing for 91 minutes on average. Very encouraging!
Well a few comments ago I wrote something about “You’d better impress me with Bang!”
And now the conclusion: I’m proud to say I have something like a dozen badges so far as well as both Shotgunner and Sniper (which I earned, rather than purchased). The game was absolutely nothing like I expected it. The business model for it is so Asian inspired… That should play out interestingly.
Of course, I am a hex/square Turn-Based fan like any good industry vet is… so beating people up at this game comes naturally to me… but it is definately more complicated and ‘twitch’ than I had anticipated.
Good luck with it, I’ll be hangin round back with my buckaroo named Danglin Bob (a great name) and my hero Johnny Charmsly (Another great name).
