Hi folks

This comment is really directed at James North, but it does include all
other programmers.

It is not meant as a personal attack, I'm just making some observations and
asking a few questions.

James? why do you release your games at the same time as someone else does?

I mean, when Phil released packman talks, you suddenly decided to release
reaction the day before.  and now, isn't it just a bit strange that for
months you've been
saying that your going to release dynoman, you set release dates then put
back.  you've done this not once but quite often.

now hunter has been released what a surprise you released dynoman the day

we all new when hunter was being released  but we had no idea over dynaman
because you kept changing your mind.

If I didn't know any better I'd swear you are doing this on purpose, maybe
to get attention?  yes James! your games are good but they are no more
important than any one else's games! so why over shadow them?

.  don't know about any one else here, but I'm sure getting sick of the
competition between all programmers.  I'd really like to have all of you
programmers working together instead of against each other, it's not as if
we have a huge community and thousands of games being released every week.
I personally feel all of our games are equal, there's not one which is
better than another, and no one programmer is better than another either!
yes, one person might like say, monkey business above say, troopanum.  and
they are entitled to say that as that is their prerogative.

I feel it very unfair of you James, to release your games right on top of
someone else who has had the release date set for months, like in the case
of Phil with packman talks and now Justin with hunter.

I appreciate that programming a game isn't predictable, in so much as
something can occur that wasn't foreseen, but couldn't you have held on with
the release of dynoman for say, another week at least?

I personally would prefer the release of games to be a bit more spaced out,
as we don't get that many new games to begin with.

and I guess the last question should be? James what has happened to genesis
and raceway?  you've been promising us those games now for how long? you've
been saying those two games will come out shortly for as long as I've been
on blindgamers, which is now one year, I've no idea how long before then
you've been going on about them.

I'm sure I speak for a lot of people on here, but we've had enough empty
promises James! don't tell us your going to release a game unless you really
are.  You've heard the story of the boy who cried wolf?  Well, don't cry
wolf too often Mr North or you'll find yourself being ignored.

Looking forward to any comments!
