      i like that you guys are still tweaking the formula, but maybe killing the music altogether after the title card makes it a bit too quiet when there isn't any talking. how about keeping the sound from the game footage, but down low so it doesn't drown out the speech?

        That music is our new Grim Fandango coming to PC, Mac, and Linux too.

      The only complaint I have is that Joe looks like he's sleepy and talks way too fast!

      I'm pretty sure Xbox Live will be so swamped with people on Halo day, that no one will be playing online, patch or not. ;)

      Does the level creation mode in SSBB not count, or is the level creator in SSBU all that different?

      Maybe it'll be on the level of a Halo Forge mode.
