Does anyone else feel some sort of guilty pleasure whenever bad news regarding this game comes out?

Sorry backers.
While I think this particular finding is probably just the date thing mentioned in other posts, I do sorta find the bad news stream fun.

It's like a slow motion train wreck...you feel bad, but you can't look away, and deep down you want the spectacle to keep going and just hope no one get hurt in the event.

Since it's the US page, the format would be MM/DD/YYYY, so on that front, the December date would read correctly. Still, the date being a match for international date formats is a bit suspect.
Isn't EEST Eastern European Summer Time?

I completely forgot about this game. Sad that it keeps getting delayed. It's not exactly a complicated kind of game so I'm not sure why it's taking them so long given how passionately people supported development with their money.

I almost donated and I'm so glad I didn't.

I'd doubt it. If there was going to be a delay again they wouldn't have a very specific date in mind that's so far away. There's not like a single notable game that's got a confirmed December release date yet this year. Heck there's not even anything really dated in November yet.

At this point, I get this strange sick feeling of laughter in the bottom of my throat. Like I am vomitting while laughing.

Is that a guilty pleasure? I DO NOT KNOW

I'm a backer, and I feel the same way as you do, the delays are more entertaining than this shitty game.

Don't retailers online normally change the date of a product to default to December when they are unsure of the release date? I could be wrong.

I'm a backer and giggled evilly at the news. We all need that one buyer beware Kickstarter, Inafune delivered that much at least.

Can someone with access to the store confirm that this is a non-event before I lock this thread up? Thanks.

Yes. I guess it's just some journo not knowing how dates work.

Back to waiting until the game comes out whenever.
No, I'm more convinced now that whoever loaded up the details onto the Marketplace screwed up, since games in Australian time zones aren't rated by the ESRB.

I'm no backer and I have no particular love for either Inafune or Megaman, but... Isn't the schadenfreude about MN9 too much at this point?

GB store has the same date format as the US store. As does the NZ. 12/2 for everyone.

It's a copy error on the US's side, and an outdated date for everyone, basically fact.

Remember when people thought backing this was actually going to make Capcom 'wake up' or some other gamer fuckshit that they used to justify backing this game?

lol

Okay, at this point it's pretty clear this is a pre-existing outdated date and not news. When Inafune crawls out of his hole to say something about the game for real, we can have another thread. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
