I read a lot more than people think I do!

The game is made with C++. I had previous experience, but Flash and C++ have become more and more similar over the years. The big thing to note is that one person doesn't code every aspect of a console game. I might know how to write the code to make characters run, jump, shoot, etc. etc., but I don't know how to write the code to make a PS2 render out those characters on the screen in the first place - other guys on the team take care of that stuff. It's cool because I just focus on THE GAME. :)

That was a pretty cool interview! Very in depth. It was nice to see the place where they work on the game when Tom and Dan are out in San Diego. It's impressive to see the positive reaction from these guys who are big time game reviewers. Hopefully AH will be a big hit. Congratulations Tom and Dan! :)

I'm going to go stuff some stickers in some envelopes now...

Poor neglected Wade...

DAMN YOU TOM FOR TAKING ALL THE GLORY!!!

On another note, you KNOW Gamespot loved it since you were on their front page for well over 4 hours.

Ah yes, Iv already given my two cents but still, something needs taken care of. For a while now yoou've been saying AH is 1-2 players, am I right? Well, on gamespot, It says now that it is 1-4 players on the AH info page. Have their been adjustments or is this just a "typo"? Thanks!

The flash game sucks. It's cheap, stupid, unfair, boring, pretty much anything bad you could say about a game, and they decide to make it into a real game? Stupid as hell.

wow fuckin sad to bash a game and his aim is Ulyaoth01

The main game is 1 or 2 players, but the "PDA Games" mini-game is 1-4 player. It appears they based it on that.

Actually the xbox is the lowest selling system, get your facts straight next time you dumbass. And it's a smart decision to not release it on the xbox, not the right audience for the game.
