Quite the understatement.

I have to say, in regards to the "it's not SotN quality so it's bad" kinda mindset, when did SotN suddenly become THE spriting standard of the universe? It's good, no contesting that, but you'd think everything before and after is invalidated by its quality and anything less somehow ruins everything else about the rest of the game, with how much this mindset gets tossed around.

I also think it says a lot about the fandom that a third of us are varying degrees of hyped or anxious, another third is calling that third gullible/easily excited or calling for skepticism, and the final third has become so jaded about the series that even a direct confirmation announcement wouldn't please them, about all of this.

To be honest, my skepticism is more of a defense mechanism at this point. After all, once bitten twice shy.
It is precisely because it never cared, that people do care.  It's something which it's lacking, because that which it has, it has lackluster of.

I prepare this word for that case.

@D9: We old folks have gone through hype and back again several times.
I shall remain skeptic until the announcement is real. Same case as VladCT.

And if it's not, Koutei's quote of Nagumo would be a good start.

Either way, we still have to wait until the full moon is over.
Now, which time zone are we talking about?  ;)

If it's a hoax I'll be disappointed but not surprised. I do however think that it could very well be true! The only thing that's holding my enthusiasm back is the fact that it wasn't long ago that IGA said that the project had been put on hold. It seems kinda sudden if it pops up now. He must've been working a bit on it in secret if that's the case? Though maybe he just veeery recently got a couple of people on board and decided to go ahead with it anyway. If this turns out to be an actual game I think it will be AT LEAST a year until release, possibly more. I highly doubt they have been able to do much, if any, real work on it.

But in order to do a succesful a Kickstarter you need to have at least something to show. IGA may get the most passionate fans on board by just putting his name out there, but it takes more to convince others. IGA is not Inafune, after all.

Though there were those screenshot from the flyer, obviously. They were either taken from some kind of prototype or they're nothing more than concept graphics.

I agree with you, if they launch a KS campaign like the one for Mighty no.9, basically showing nothing but concept art, probably the end result will be not as successful but it will be funded for sure.

Is already 3PM in Japan, I wonder if this supposed announcement is going to be done taking into account JST or USA time.

I know. It's not just you guys. Newer fans get excited and get called gullible by the older fans who were once no different, that seems a bit of a cruel irony to me.

This of course isn't to say I'm not skeptical, but the evidence to support this possibility seems fairly reasonable, I think. I wouldn't be surprised if it wound up being a cleverly-marketed fanwork (not sure how, considering it tends to be difficult to use someone else's email practically) or gets revoked by the big dogs yet again, but I'm certainly not adamant that either is the case regardless.

@Little Dracula: If the US folks are handling the announcement, it will most likely be on PST.

@D9: Well, that's basically called life. We gain experience as we grow older. Calling others gullible comes from a place of wisdom hoping to spare the young ones from disappointment if and when it happens. Of course no one listens and the cycle begins anew. hahaha.

And this forum topic is gaining a lot of activity. Even from anonymous bots/people.

I dunno, I'm sure there are folks out there who harp on younger generations just for the sake of it.

Either way, though, whoever's actually pulling these strings has done their job and done it well; for better or worse, we're all talking about it. Even the amount of online members at this time of night is way over what it usually is.

I understand concern, but seeing as IGAVANIA has been linked to the Quarterwomann account, which was linked to the original tease in September, this is very likely legit. This is not some wishy-washy journalist making claims, like how Mirror of Fate was to be led by IGA and his Castlevania team; this is linked to the same bunch of folks that helped market and promote Mighty No. 9.

The reveal of the game seems to be planned on some level for Monday the 4th, at least by limiting it to EST and PST. I do not believe it's all going to be one instant fire of a game name and even a crowdfunding move, but a slow tease until a later time. Potentially the 11th, if the tweet by Jonathan Holmes on a KickStarter game is in fact this project.

https://twitter.com/TronKnotts/status/594689137023787010

Couple this with Quarterwomann's most recent tweet which also implies a trickle down: Lots to report, but one thing Your Qrrespondent can't nail down is the timing—what arrives with the moon, and what comes later?. https://twitter.com/Quarterwomann/status/594768145711140867

Ok I haven't been here for a few days and I have no idea what this is about. Someone fill me in please

I made a thread on NeoGAF that attempts to summarize the current confirmed events. Hopefully it'll help you out.

This is unfortunately true. A great lack of wisdom on their part. But by doing so they risk making their beds out of broken glass, rusty nails and razor wire. In short; Karmic retribution for dishonorable behavior and a lack of tolerance to the next gen. Everyone was that young once so I really can't see why they don't understand or sympathize the younger crowd.

I call that ego-tripping.
I believe those people who love doing that are not supposed to be considered as adults. They are still living in the playground mentality.
