I've also been working on my beat-em-up project, getting the background scrolling working.
I've been following the E3 stuff pretty closely, playing the demos(Ace Combat 6!). I was little upset by the news of Gears of War for the PC. I wasn't upset because they're making it for the PC, I'm upset because of the exclusive single player levels for the PC version. I'm a really big fan of Gears of War, and I play the game alot online, so I'd really like to play those new single player levels. Oh well, I was cheered back up again by a release date for the new Smash Bros[grin]
