    I've kind of grown out of the whole cutesy platformer mindset but I think I might give it another go if this game can deliver the goods. How could I pass up the chance to play in the **cue the mad scientist** fourth dimension.

    Blinx: The Time Sweeper

    [image=http://xboxmedia.ign.com/xbox/image/blinx_052102_460a.jpg]

    >>>Master of time
    What makes Blinx revolutionary is its use of the Xbox hard drive. Play is recorded onto the hard drive to allow the use of Blinx' various time-control abilities. Each level is sprinkled with different colored time crystals. By collecting time crystals you unlock the ability to manipulate time. You have four crystal slots to fill. Each time control command (record, rewind, fast forward, slow, and pause) is associated with a different time crystal color.<<<

    >>>Of course, the real innovation is being able to control time. In the demo we played, there were several instances where the use of time was critical to gameplay, and many more where it enhanced gameplay. The best that we saw was the teeter-totter. You need to get Blinx over a high wall with nothing to assist you but a teeter-totter. To solve the puzzle, you need to record Blinx jumping on the teeter totter. Then move to the other end of the totter and press play. A yellow ghost of Blinx does the exact movements recorded, jumps on one end of the totter, and sends Blinx flying over the wall.<<<

    It's being made by the same guys who made the original Sonic and the guy behind Nights. The whole concept sounds kind of cool.... despite the happy big eyed characters. And using that vacume to move things around or shoot things out might be a bizzare change of pace, I've always wondered what it would look like if I vacumed up a park bench then put it in reverse and shot it out at someone. [face_mischief] Wonder if you can suck up ghost with it. ;) :p

    Sounds very interesting. As strange as it may sound for a 17 year old male, I don't find those cutesy platformers gay or anything, but rather quite fun. I'll keep an eye on this one.

    The use of the term "gay" as a derogatory adjective isn't allowed.

    So far in this thread its use has been borderline, but possibly passable.

    Well, not counting Cigam Ritah's use for trolling of x-box users.

    Please try not to use the term "gay" in a negative connotation.

    Thanks.

    Why did you put a semi-colon at the end of your sentence?

    would it be all right to say that's positively gay?

    1. fat fingers.

    2. Depends on context. I would advise showing common sense and more appropriate synonyms then there's no problem.

    It's not a flame, jp. It's the same thing if Bib or PB calls me gay... I know the guy. He's my SPECIAL buddy.

    And anybody wanna check out my site? I'm so cool.

    Are you referring to Cigam's post? I didn't edit that because of comments directed at you, I edited it so that a console war wouldn't erupt. It was baiting x-box owners.

    Regardless of whether if it's a friend flaming you in a good natured way, it looks bad from the outside if visitors to the forum don't know about your relationships.

    Anyway, everything is dependent on context and circumstance. Just makes my job easier if certain word usages are avoided.

    You took it the wrong way because it wasn't said to incite a console war. But I see your point from a moderator's point.

    I don't like the X-Box. I like to make fun of people who have the X-Box.

    Gasp... the horror. Does that mean you also don't like Acclaim, Atlus, Bioware, Bungie, Capcom, Crystal Dynamics, EA, Edios, From Software, ID Soft, Interplay, Koei, Konami, Ubi Soft, Namco, Tecmo, Westwood Studios, Sega, Siera, Smilebit, Neversoft, ect... You must be pretty bitter. ;) It's a good thing your opinion is insignificant otherwise no one would be playing any games.
