Good to see things are still on track schedule-wise. Next letter Yoshi writes will include the starting date of the Beta. He will conduct a media-tour starting on Feb. 10 and upon the conclusion of that he will show us the next LIVE from the Producer event. Looking like the benchmark will be ready to go soon also. Pretty soon we will start to see what this game really has to offer, for better or worse.

Hi. How ya' doin'?

I remember how serious it felt the first time I read one of these. Like the company was publicly acknowledging it's problems and publicly addressing solutions. Now it just feels like another marketing trick to boost interest. I don't know what has changed but I wish I could go back to being reassured.

George Lucas had some IPs he didn't feel like developing. He sold them to a company that would. There is a lesson here for Crapcom.

Of course, I had to add another benchmark screenshot (again, pay no mind to the scoring). We're running our final tests using various PC specs.

This is literally right above the picture.

I think people were expecting the beta to start earlier or at least to get a start day this week.

Not much of interest concerning content in the game in this producer letter either.

Oof I just wanna start Phase 1. Just give us a date. I'm so impatient!
#7Stink_SlingerPosted 2/6/2013 5:07:31 PM
My uninformed, just for fun, guess would be feb 24th as depending on how long his tour takes (probably a week) then another vid then release like a week later. Again, just guessing as "mid-february" doesn't seem probable.

another disappointing letter. waiting for a start date will make every letter disappointing unless it includes that date.
