    Maybe there is a Star Wars link here, maybe they were saying "Admiral Akhbar!" and they were going to follow up with "IT'S A TRAP!"

    It could be true.

    I think you could be onto something here. Although if that is the case I think it would be most offensive to members of the rebellion and should be removed from the game.

    I was right!
    I did some debugging of the game and found THE ORIGINAL SCENE!

    Admiral Akbar!

    Hah! You can even see The Trap on the right and everything.

    I am confused.
    The comments thread on the news story is turning into an 80-post rantathon, and the forum thread is relaxed and calm...
    I suspect it may be a trap of some kind.

    anyway, there was a sound clip in there that sounded like it might have been someone going "allahu akbar". Not sure if it was or not, but it certainly sounded like it could have been. It didn't help that it was the vicious little cannibal mokey-bear things making the noise.

    It was brought to our attention, we realised it could have been offensive to some people, we mentioned this to the dev team and they took it out of the game. Not much of a story really, is it?


    Also, please stop photoshopping ackbar into the game, or George Lucas will sue us.

    ... must admit I an image of Admiral Akbar always jumps into my mind every time I hear Muslims say "allah akbar". Raises a smile, but an inward one in case I get burned or minced or something as a result.

    @OCG: Any chance of you guys changing the title to something slightly more palletable before launch? Otherwise I can see this game being one of the "greatest titles with the worst title"...

    Just a thought! :oD

    Still, as I take it, it's just a nonsensical phrase that is not plot specific? Therefore no biggy. Still a bit pathetic on the Islamies' part though.

    What, EXACTLY is pathetic?

    That they asked for the phrases removal? They didn't create a massive uproar or anything. Gamers seem to be reacting more furiously than the Islamic council did.

    From what i've read it all seems to have been settled quietly and without too much fuss. I was quite happy with the way both parties seemed to be acting. It's nice to see simple things resolved without fuss especially in such a contentious area. Well done to both says i.

    I agree. Both parties has acted in a very nice fashion. I only wish some of us could do the same. Could we just leave it at that. And if anyone wants to get into a shouting match please keep it on the front page where it belongs.

    In my own quest for japanes sales charts I found this post with links to a new video.

    Worthy attempt to resuce this thread and get it back on track Tonka- I'll pick up the ball and stumble with it;

    One comment on the youtube vid mentioned that this is to be a budget title- anyone know if that's the case?

    Some guy on the fron page article comments begged for a sub $40 release. From what I've read it has around 40hrs of gameplay and a ton of items/enemies.

    That plus the fact that it looks gorgeous makes me wonder where that rumour stemed from.

    It would seem the rumour started from wishful thinking then. :)
    When i first saw it i thought full price and i'd buy it at that but budget would be better. :)

    Shame but, that said, it certainly looks well worth full whack.

    Low price is always a good thing. I think games nowadays are ridiculously over priced. Especially since they drop about 20% in 2-3 weeks. Well, at least non Nintendo games do that.

    groovmeister: could you please start your own topic specific thread for that? I'm not saying sweep it under the rug. Just keep it out of the game thread. Talking ethics/politics/religion/right/wrong on an anonymous basis is pointless and can only lead to misery. As I mentioned before there are threads where ypu can discuss the right or wrongness of it.

    Link for groovmeister

    In other Zack and Wiki news. Spoilerific gameplay video.

    Article discussion board would be a good idea, so 'post a comment' goes straight to the forum itself.

    But do we really want all the frontpage pixies to stick their nosesd in here?

    That's what I was thinking, back then, before the "incident"...

    It would be pretty cool to have periodic challenges to download from WiiConnect and have a vote channel like feedback on how others did.

    Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2 on the DS had custom level downloads, Elebits had at least player-shareable levels, so why not Zack & Wiki?

    As nice as that would be I think it's unlikely. MvsDk 2 is "just" a 2D platformer so the only data you need to send is an array.

    ["platform" "space","space","DK", "mini","mini"] etc.

    To make a nice 3D puzzle the editor would have to be fairly advanced. Then again, there has been open editors for far more advanced games.

    I think the only WiFi functionality will be highscore boards. I hope that I will be proven wrong.

    Any right minded individual knows that it's a "gambole", roli poli is how you get a paraletic Polish man home from the pub.

    A lot of screens are in 4:3. Don't tell me this game wont support 480p 16:9.

    Reading the mouthwatering Zelda Review on the frontpage made me think.

    What would a true Wii Zelda play like if it was made in a similar fashion? Have Capcom pre empted Nintendo with Zack & Wiki?
