Not focused lately

These last weeks were slow. I had a couple of work issues that kept me occupied and unable to work on AM2R, and whenever I got the time to open up Game Maker, I was blocked.

In the meantime, HyruleSwordsMan finally got some spare time to start with the Omega Metroid sprites. Hopefully, he´ll find more free time between work and study.

AM2R is now affiliated with Metroid: Coven, an awesome looking top-down fangame. I suggest you check it out. And this blog´s RSS feed is also available at RetroInvaders, a great site with retro gaming news, it´s one of my new favourites.

Things will be better for me these days, I´ll be spending time with the project right after my birthday party (It´s tomorrow). Have a good week!

Not sure what cyberkid thinks he's talking about. Maybe he doesn't know about the delay.

Happy Birthday !
Nice job man, the demo is awesome and i can barely wait for the final version but there's one tiny problem. You can't use the speed booster in diagonal using the L Button when you do the shinespark trick. Can you fix that little problem? It's just that i played and finished almost all 2D metroid games and you can do this with the L Button. I already told all my "Metroid Maniac" friends about Metroid Confrontation, they played it and loved it (duh).Keep up the good work !

You rock.
You are my hero.
Take your time.
Again, you are my hero.
I love what you are doing.
Very excited.
Keep up the fantastic work!

Wow, all this time I thought it would be released in June, great now another two months to wait x(, and sorry about my earlier post, I guess I read wrong.

purplecowadoom said...

Yeah. I think everyone here is a bit disappointed with Nintendo's game-delaying tendencies. But it's even worse for me. Now I'm probably going to have to choose between Metroid: Other M and Dead Rising 2, as they're now set to get released on the same day. As a fan, I want to get Other M, but as a gamer, I know Dead Rising 2 would keep me entertained for a much longer period of time. What's a guy to do?

His birthday has been over and done with for almost a week. If you're all going to demand his posts be more frequent, you should all very well be able to read them in full, including WHEN they were posted. I find it thoroughly strange that the first part of the post I take notice of is the last thing everyone else seems to notice.

purplecowadoom said...

I didn't mean "bring the thread to a complete standstill." Come on guys!
