I know mine won't.  Yah, this is all very odd for me: this is the first time I've been excited about a game that I'm probably not even going to be getting (for a long time anyways).

Anyways, shouts to all my countdown fans!:



Hey does this prove Assymetry?
I'm not even sure if those were made in the editor.  They look more like marketing art.

If I make a creature named Bob, it will actually bob -- violently.

Weird, they billed mine... but that's probably because I used a temporary mastercard to pay.

What was it before/after that? A Visa? An American Express? :P

Temporary as in, I don't have a credit card, so I have to go to the ATM and create a temporary virtual credit card with a certain value that I can use for online shopping  8)

Hehe, the things financial instances create  ... those kind of options almost don't exist here.

Belgium is generally scared and reserved towards antyhing that has "credit" in it, except to build houses. Belgian leaders that is, not the population: we're seem to be overall more progressive than our leaders nowadays.

Any given population, on average, is bound to be more progressive than it's leadership. Leaders desire power and fear losing it.

Why is it they never release these things before the weekend when most people have 2 free days to play.

When it comes out next week most people will be in work and only designing creatures in the evening.

Yeah, I'd love virtual credit cards, because real credit cards are just plain suckage. I wish more sites add paybycash so we can use a wally card to pay stuff.

Because if there are any problems with the Servers or and Critical Issues that need immediate attention (like some missed glitch/bug that causes the game to be unstable on most systems or to not work right), there would be no developers working to fix it as quick as possible. It would have to wait until Monday morning, in which case a lot of people would be pissed. At least in theory, that's one reason it gets released in the middle of the week. Another is because it's an attempt to get people into stores during the week, as it's generally quiet on weekdays and weekends can be insane.
