Man, incredible amount of pictures. I so wish I could be there!

Yeah dude, it was awesome. I got some stories as well... here's one:

So we are standing in line to get our posters signed, and PXG and I are shooting the breeze, talking about the Wii, old consoles we've owned, relationships, our NeoGAF bannings... just chilling. Shinogu is in front of us, taking a 30 minute fucking video on his new Ipod Nano... and we see a girl go up to 5th Cell with a handmade poster of NeoGAF.

This is the conversation between me and PXG:

Me: WTF HOLY SHIT? A girl with a NeoGAF poster? WTF is going on?
PXG: Yeah there's a bunch of girls at NeoGAF.
Me: We all know there are no girls on the internet, much less on GAF.
PXG: Well Red Scarlet is a girl... and umm...
Me: Isnt Dragona a girl too?
PXG: Yeah... thats two. GAF has two girls, and they're both mods. :lol
Me: Well Kagari is a girl too.
PXG: Wut?
Me: Yeah. And she knows more about Final Fantasy than anyone i've seen. She's hardcore man.
PXG: I know this other chick on GAF who bought 25 grand worth of gaming stuff last year. She's got 5 screens in her room.
Me: o_O
PXG: o_O

Then we brought our attention back to the girl getting the NeoGAF poster signed by 5th cell. (The picture of the poster is on the previous page.) I gave her an incredulous look, because as we all know, there are no girls on NeoGAF. Then we all got excited that not only did we find another Gaffer, but that she made a NeoGAF poster and even got it signed!! We got our posters signed and then I went up and talked to her. This is our conversation, as far as I remember.

Me: Hey... are you from NeoGAF?
Her: No.
Me: Err... you have a NeoGAF poster?
Her: Yeah I have an account there, but I generally dont post there/dont go on it.
Me: Oh ok...

At this point I was gonna ask if I could look at the poster and maybe get a NeoGAF group photo with it, but at that point I had figured out that the conversation was pretty much over. :lol

So the nice lady in purple wearing sunglasses, if you are reading this, I apologize if I came across as scary or creepy. I just wanted a photo with the NeoGAF poster. :lol

I guess you were creepy. Why would someone have a neogaf poster and use neogaf? A better lie would be to say it's for a friend. lol. Whoever she is is sure to be reading this. OMGhi2u.

My solution for this is my favorite because it's so delightfully mid-century villainous.

I picked up the sandwich, then rode around in the air in a hot air balloon until time ran out.

Hey guys. Sorry I couldn't stick around longer, I had to go catch a bus... and to be honest, the store's atmosphere tired me out pretty quickly.

I have a few pics to post up tonight. Was great meeting you guys, although briefly.

(Sending from the Bolt bus. <3 bus internets)

Thanks for using spoilers on the solutions guys, this thread is dangerous to read now. :lol

And about girls being there, at least one girl posted earlier and said she'd be there wearing a fedora. And those pictures are cool, it's awesome to see so many hats. :D

Powered through the first 11 puzzle levels. Yes, it is quite a joy to just see how many words Objectnaut recognizes. For what it's worth the only word I stumped it with while actually trying to solve a puzzle was "tenderloin".

Maxwell is indeed a bit fiddly to control, but it's not that big a deal so far. Clearly the thinking here was to make the game playable entirely with the stylus, which I agree with. (You can move the camera around with the face buttons too, though.)

Amusing Scribblenauts anecdote #1:
Had to collect three flowers for a girl, one guarded by a bee, another by a pirahna, and a third perched on a high ledge. In an attempt to be kind to animals I summoned a beekeeper thinking he would, I don't know, keep the bee occupied. Well, he did, but only by running in terror from it until the bee cornered him on the left side of the screen and killed him. That is one angry bee. Then it went after the girl, who ran away and jumped into the water, where the pirahna killed her. Oh well.

Finally solved by summoning a cat to take care of the bee, a dolphin to kill the pirahna (hey, sure), and taking a jetpack to the high ledge.

Nuke for a fish ? talk about overkill ! Maybe try a

Congrats to Jeremiah and 5th Cell!

Waiting for it to come to europe, however ive been playing in a friends house...
Thought t was awesome and slapped him in the face for pirating it. Told me he used it as a demo and he will buy it. :lol

The last level I played was really hard, had the starite in the ceiling with lots of spikes and a megalodon in the water.
The only thing I could accomplished before returning home was
Glueing poison to meat and throwing it to the water, the megalodon ate it and fall to sleep, took a trident and went to the water to kill him but he woke up, however this time he stayed calm and I could ride him :lol

Also, generating a
teleporter in the playground zaps you to the inside of the university, where the developers are hanging out, along with a robot zombie and a rally car. Of course I ran them all over.

Post-launch party: It was phenomenal. More on that later. Marius of 5th showed me SO much. Talked to me a lot about their process and Objectnaut.

I'll post more later. Oh, and by the way, the game is absolutely fucking impossibly incredible.

Say you have to kill a fish. Can you just summon a shark and then delete the shark? Does that make it cheaper?

"Cheap" in terms of cheating? Kinda. But yeah, you can do delete anything you summon in iirc.

Anyways, what's our stance on "spoilers" in this game? I updated the OP to warn people to spoiler tag solutions until the game is released, but should it be common courtesy to do that even post-release? Everyone says the entire fun of the game is to discover things for yourself.

That's the exact technique I use:D

Also (and sorry if this has been posted) if you type in teleporter you get taken to
the 5th cell offices! With the logo and everything. Using the magnifying glass on everyone reveals a bunch of team members. "liz" has similar characteristics to a zombie though and she'll transform the staff if you let her downstairs
:lol

EDIT: sorry added spoiler tag.

Wait, did you just honestly admit to playing a pirated copy at a friend's house? >_____>

And thanks for spoiler-tagging stuff, people. I think spoiler-tagging solutions is fair enough, ESPECIALLY for a puzzle game for the first couple of months.

Please tag your spoilers, folks, so as not to ostracise us Aussies and Europeans - at least until October 9th.

I dont have one of those ds carts, but I had to play it, the hype beat me.
I will certainly buy it here when they release it day one. And I will sure beat my firend if he doesnt buy it also as he promised me, at least he has erased it.

We've already established in many posts that the game has the worst controls ever.

Bwaha, it's too late for you to cancel your preorder!

...I'm still getting it :(

*edit*

Wait a second. You said you were in the Netherlands? How do you have the game already?

A buddy of mine started doing the same thing. He discovered that "trick" in some museum level. He kept trying to do something and Maxwell would run into danger, so using a wall prevents him from being an idiot

Yeah, but for me they're more than tedious. I had to put the game down at one point because I was pissed. I had to go through the same setup 5 times with Maxwell running around when I didn't want him to. One of them involved that trip wire.

Just got home from NWS. My son and I had a great time. I'm the girl (off camera), holding the other side of ChuckyChick's NeoGAF poster. Got me and my son a copy of the game.

I found it funny to discover Jackson break dancing in the game.:lol

That sucks, that's the second impression like that.

...your last post:

According to the official thread, many stores started selling copies early. So, many people are, unfortunately, getting Scribblenauts early legally.
And you mentioned you didn't preorder, and I didn't know you went to the NYC launch...so how did you get it early? :X
