I'm trying to decide what's worse : Having your wife make that comment, or posting it in a forum afterwards.

I wonder what the 6/15 game will be if the "2012 Core Set" isn't out until 7/15.

It would be awesome if it at least brought forward all our decks and unlocked cards from the first DotP.

Then what exactly will the game have before the 2012 core set gets added?

It's supposed to be Crazy Machines: Elements:

In grand Crazy Machines tradition, players must create wacky chain reactions using different parts and accomplish the tasks set out in their mission, from knocking vases over to blowing out candles. Players can also use lots of new parts besides the elements, including cloud machines, pinwheels and flamethrowers.

Crazy Machines Elements has three game modes. In Puzzle mode, players must finish 100 partially-built chain reaction machines using the parts specified to accomplish the various tasks. Inventors can create true chain reaction marvels that obey the laws of physics and not only satisfy the requirements of the task, but also demand some serious brain power, inventiveness and physical out-of-the-box thinking.
Sounds like The Incredible Machine.

Anybody have an idea how frequently Battlefield 1943 goes on sale? I played the demo on the recommendation of a friend and enjoyed it. He said he managed to snag it for ~800MSP some time back.

Major just tweeted that there is no XBLA this week, no matter how incredible.

I read that bumper as if the video game comes out 6/15 and the 2012 Core set game will be released tabletop on 7/15.

That was my first thought. And it would make the video game give MtG addicts a first look at cards new for the summer.

Ah, that could be. I do know that the "Gideon" guy is definitely a 2012 introduction so the VG centering around him without him existing yet would be kind of strange

Found this on another site:


Crazy Machines delayed, so no XBLA game today
Posted: 01.06.2011 17:59 by JonahFalcon Comments: 0

Something that hasn't happen in a very long time has occured: there's no Xbox Live Arcade game release today. There was a game due to be released - Crazy Machines - but it was delayed, and no game will be taking its place.

In a tweet by Xbox social marketing manager Graeme Boyd: "Just heard that there will be no Xbox Live Arcade release this week. I mentioned Crazy Machines the other day but it's been delayed. Sorry!"

However, there's still new goodies on Marketplace to sample, including the Dungeon Siege III demo. Check it out!

Makes you wonder about all the machinations of the approval system.
