Ah right, that makes sense. Gotta show the game off at it's best :) It does seem like they didn't really play the game that much, and they used cheats as well (some of the better guns on early levels gave it away) which probably means they didn't get a true feeling of the game anyway. It just doesn'...

I think the Keycard thing is a valid point, however it in no way overshadows the good points of the game. After all, in this kind of game the levels and objectives are merely ways to get the player to find lots of aliens to kill with big shiny weapons, not for exposition or to further the integrity ...

I've just added a mini-review to Amazon.co.uk. Full of praise, naturally :)

The game's rating is really high, shame the sales ranking isn't quite as good :?

Hopefully that'll change though, good luck!

If you have a P4 then at about 85C it automatically slows itself down to avoid burnout. Obviously you don't want it getting that high in the first place, and your idle temps do seem quite high. I don't know if AMD processors are the same, but with all the problems the Athlons used to have with burno...

I guess we won't really be in competition (apart from maybe for 'Best Shadowgrounds Mod' :P ) as ours is based on the story, whereas your doing a SmashTV mod iirc. It's great a few people are producing mods tho: hopefully it'll continue interest in Shadowgrounds and get Frozenbyte more money to crea...

That's what we thought as well :)

Btw, Baxter vocals would be great! If it's possible then we'd definitely like to use them.

The current plan is to have a few missions against humans (from Baxter's career before he goes to Ganymede), then against aliens later on when the story merges with the original one.

Don't worry - there'll be plenty of aliens :D It wouldn't really be Shadowgrounds with them!
