View Full Version : Countdown to the game's release: 7 Weeks.

Okay, I'm going to start a 'countdown to release' thread, hehe. I'll post a countdown week-by-week, based on the official word on the release date. Currently the most specific official release date is February 2005 (according to the back cover of the Pacific Fighters manual) - the German site is the least specific (it just says '2005'), while the French site says Spring '05 (which I guess could mean as late as June 21st), the US site says 1st Quarter 2005, so that could be anywhere from January to the end of March, while according to the English site the game was released nearly two months ago (but I don't see it anywhere).

So let's take the most conservative date based on the PF manual: February 28, meaning we have exactly 14 weeks and 2 days left to wait.

I'll update this whenever new info becomes available. Anyone is welcome to post here if you find new official info, and I'll check it out and update the countdown.

The official and most specific date is 'February'. Thus the most conservative date would be February 28th, while the least conservative would be February 1st. I'm not sure what calendar has April and May falling in February, but if it works for you, I guess that's fine.

Official date is February - it's on the back of the Pacific Fighters manual. February is the most specific officially-endorsed date.

As you yourself have pointed out, that's only 1 of many 'Official' release dates. How many are there now? 5 or 6? Why is the date on the back of a manual that was printed over a month ago any better than any other?
There is 1. It's when the game is done. DUH

Let me make it perfectly plain for everyone, by which I mean Hauitsme (who seems to be on a religious crusade in terms of criticising anything I write): this is my thread, and I say it's February because that's the date I'm choosing to follow right now. When a new date comes along, I'll decide (that's me - no one else) when to alter MY THREAD's criteria. If you don't like it, too f#$%ing bad.

Is that clear enough? Should I use shorter words with fewer syllables?

If you think it should be another date, start your own thread.

P.S. Thanks for the bump.

I agree with Beeryus, not because it's his thread, but because though the "official release date" has changed a couple of times, the latest is the one on the back of the Pacific Fighters manual, and it says February 2005. It may change again, but that's the latest word we have now.

This is YOUR thread? Since when did you purchase the rights? For someone that has been posting here for only a few weeks(religiously, just like the fanatic you seem to be), you sure do take a lot for granted.
It's not a 'religious crusade' I'm on, but perhaps it could be seen as that way in a fanatics eye. If YOU don't like it, too f#$%ing bad!
BTW, do you feel better now that you've ranted and raved? If not, try asking your psychologist for some Prozack during your next daily visit. I hear it will work for your condition.

I'm hearing rumblings about February 22nd. Since it's not really an official date I'm a bit skeptical, but since we haven't heard anything official to contradict it (and since it's still within the official date of 'February', AND because I'm seeing multiple independent sources (including Amazon.com) publishing it, I'm going to go ahead and give it my unofficial endorsement.
