You know what? I don't doubt it one bit. I guess if they have to wiegh a sure thing against a not-so-sure thing, then they'll go in favor of the sure deal every time. For instance, the local Gamestop actually drove to Pheonix from Tucson to get some copies of MGS3 yesterday, whereas they still can't tell me when Alien Hominid will be available...

I'm still waiting for the Gamecube version at the local mall. From what I'm hearing is that the ps2 version sells out pretty quick, so I must grab one fast before I have to fight my way through the crowds for the last copy.

I went to Electronic Boutique today and this is what happened.
Me: So do you have that game Alien Hominid?
Dude: Alien Hominid? isn't that a flash game on newgrounds? i'm not sure..
Me: Yea.. well i've made flash games before.
Dude: Oh yea? are you an established author on there? what was your last game?
Me: well. kind of.. it was Right Of Way.
Dude: What do you do in that game?
Me: You run people over and collect points.. but pot-holes and trucks will destroy your health bar.
Dude: That's cool.. well anyway, i couldn't find Alien Hominid but there are several boxes in the back full of games.. that need to be sorted still.
Me: So when will Alien Hominid be ready here?
Dude: Well, according to the computer.. it should be in here by today sometime... as soon as possible it should be here.
Me: cool, i'll just check back in a week.

I ended up buying GTA: San Andreas instead.

I also went this morning to EB, in El Paso, TX. They told me that they didn't know when it'll arrive... something about that they deleted it off the computer or something because of the delay, and told me that it'll probably arrive the 23rd. I also went to ToysRus , Walmart and still nothing. My only hope is to drop by GameStop in the evening to see if they have it.

I think you may be able to sue the distributers for finacial damages, since advertising and reputation was placed on a certain date.

Since it wasn't there, some people may not have bought the game, or thought it was cancelled. They should have to pay reparations for this.

For great justice!

Tell them to check their overstock, then if it's not there, have them check with the distributer

You know what would kick some serious amounts of ass? AH on a handheld. PSP or DS preferably.

I know someone up there mentioned that there was a "GBA" Alien Hominid thing on Gamestop.com but Im just kinda thinking about how awesome it would be on one of the newer systems.

Well here's some good news. I just recieved AH PS2 from Gamestop.com here in Kyoto, Japan.

The bad news Im currently boxing up my stuff as I am heading back to the states in a few days (been here a good 2 years... wish AH had come sooner ;( )

Anyhow when I get to Washington i'll toss it in and grab a friend.

Cheers

Dear Tom and DAN!!!!!!! >.<!

I will now tell you how I got alien hominid!

1. I read online about people getting it from EB games.
2. I sent my brother out on this wild goose chase, expecting him to return with nothing.
3. He braught back the game. I was shocked.

He told me that the man just walked away for a second, and came out with the game in his hands. =|

And to prove to you two that I got it from EB games.. I will post a picture when my batteries charge up!
=D

I'd support the team by ordering online, but I don't have a credit card, and I don't wanna show my dad how much money I owe my brother.

It's really difficult for me to even begin to think about playing your game. Even though it is very cool indeed. You are competing with half-life 2 whcih just came out. So I won;t be playing your alien hominid game anytime soon? In addition is there a PC version of the game. i have not touched my PS2 in almost a year. I got too used to playing great looking games in a much higher resolution on my PC than on some toy on my TV. I have only played the newgrounds verion of Alien hominid what is it a 3rd person shooter or a side scroller? I love Your website and I would love to see more sexual games and movies with less cencorship. and less Advertisements. Especially pop ups they are just plain annoying.

At 11/17/04 06:12 PM, TomFulp wrote: Well... We're as disappointed as everyone else who tried to find AH in stores today. We spent all afternoon driving to various stores looking for AH, and none of them had it. Like other users observed, EB has it scheduled for Monday the 22nd. Gamestop said it is active in their system, so they expected to have it today - but I don't think they did.

So basically, it looks like the game didn't ship on the 16th, and none of us were notified. Yeah, I'm very bummed out right now. I'm sick of not being able to give fans a solid release date, and I feel especially bad about fans who took time out of their day to go hunting for the game, only to come to the same conclusion we did.

However, AH WILL HIT SHELVES, dammit! Nothing can stop that now. Some users said it was out in their areas - if anyone actually sees it on a store shelf this week, please let me know! I'm as confused as you guys are right now... I'm dying to see it on the shelves. Sorry again to everyone who went looking for it and couldn't find it. I'll post more updates when I know something.
