Flixel has been changing a lot lately, that might be another reason why there aren't that many entries Tom. Although it's for the better of flixel, it takes a little while for people to get adjusted to the changes.

African kids with books...

It'll take me a while for me to figure out the main good things behind giving African children books.

In the writing forum, poetry battles are not the only battles being held. There are also short story battles being held in with a similar concept. Follow the links in my signature to find out more.

I think castle crashers deserved being rated 6th most influential game. Reasons for this being, while all the other game companies are trying to break the ice with something completely new that no one's ever seen, with graphics that make everything look real, castle crashers goes back to what made video games so popular, and that's playing, competing (points), and improving with your friends. it just goes to show that you don't have to have the most original idea out there or the best graphics in this business to make a good game, you just need to appeal to what people like.

which is what most game developers seem to forget these days.

Thanks for the mention in your post Tom, it means a lot to us at Mashin Studios. We forgot to mention that BattleBlock Theater (A.K.A. Game #3) made it into Tyler's Top 10 most anticipated games of 2010 at number #3 lol. Regardless thanks again we're looking forward to BattleBlock Theater, and we even have some impressions on the trailer and will have more opinions as more is revealed.

Dammit, why did you have to make it a 360 exclusive at first? Why not make it multiplatform from the start?!

Castle Crashers PS3

There better be some damn worthwhile extras for us PS3 users who have been waiting for such a fucking long time.

That's a question for someone at Sony who has probably been fired by now.

So, it wasn't Newgrounds that didn't want it on the PS3? It was some guy at Sony?

Sorry for yelling at you, Tom. Now I feel bad... :'(

PS3 and X-Box 360 are apposing companies, I'm pretty sure they are pissed at Tom and NG for siding with their rival corporation.
Besides, Sony is a big company. They own a lot of other types of technology, to the point where Microsoft buys their products (speakers, cd readers, all that jazz) for other things like a computer or so.
Or that is alteast of what I think it is, I could be wrong.

I don't have either system.

I wish Castle Crashers was for the PC as well, that be sweet. Oh well...

Heh, it would appear you forgot about the MWC competition that's running at the moment. HERE
We need the promotion, I think, especially considering there are five places for prizes this time around, and as of yet, there are only three entries. And I don't want to go to default prizes.
