NOTE: I thought you were asking about the release date of the game, but after I wrote a bunch of stuff realized you may have been asking about the Watch It Played video - which I know will happen, but not when... I am going to go ahead and include my explaination of PHGs communication/preorder changes, as it may still be interesting to those that haven't heard...

After the fiasco with Mice and Mytics (promised a date and shipping woes and distribution via fulfillment agency slowed delivery beyond their control), PHG has drastically changed how they update the status of their games (as well as handling all preorders directly to assure they treat the hardcore fans the best they can).

The new production timeline communication system is a series of icons that tells you where the game is in the pipeline: concept, prototype, printing, on the boat, shipping, etc. (or something like that). The exact catagories were explain in the PHG newsletter that just started, although I couldn't find a link to the information or newsletter on the website (Joe/Colby can that info be more accessible/easier to find?).

It is a much better system then promising/guesstamating a date that people will EXPECT the game, as the production chain is to tempermental to accurately calculate this. The icons are similar to those used by other quality game publishers and I think will help people time their purchases/expectations without creating a sense of loss if the schedule stretches.

However, if you preorder direct, they are going to airship the game from production for preorders only - so preorders will be filled significantly before retail/online...

If you hold your cursor over the icons in the store it explains what each icon means. Right now it's the orange Manufacturing icon, which means "The product is currently being assembled by our manufacturer. This product will take 2-5 months to become available."

I think PHG is wisely avoiding putting out specific dates, but this is a game I'm very keen to get a video up for, so when we know something concrete, we'll try to keep you posted.

This likely means, I'll update the day it shows at my door.

Which can't come soon enough.

I think running some gang warfare on our channel with the viewers is going to be a lot of fun.

After the costumes from Marvel, I am expecting gold chains, baggy jeans, and a convincing alien mask.

In more than a couple, but usually just at the start of the episodes (didn't want to overdo it).

Episode 2 I'm especially fond of, and episode 6.
