I think some of the comments in this thread are a bit harsh. Xmen, as it stands today, is a great game with great code. Sure it could use a little polish, but its code is as good as most B/W games with a lot more to do. The code in that game is no longer holding it back. Yes it was a hard road, and yes it would be great to see it polish up. But there are much worse games to complain about. I think most are soured up on xmen due to the early code drops and how bad they were. Really, all its missing is some polish on a wizard mode most will never see and a speculated but never promised dead pool option that's been in the menus - where the menus themselves could have been the issue.

TAV is fine as is even if its never updated. Same with every game out there except WoF and Metallica. Star Trek even seems quite decent now with its current code and we know they're not done there.

This thread is pretty nuts. It started out ok with good intent. But when you have complainers about acdc code, which is freaking awesome. And people citing how fantastic woz code is, with its ridiculously incomplete code, its clear that most are just hating to hate.

Quoted from Rarehero:

Stop saying that. Wizard mode doesn't have any dots. That's not fine. Also there's a bug with Thor's backpanel flasher...that should be an easy fix.

I don't care about dots in the display during wizard mode. I'd be too busy watching and hitting the balls to be looking for various animations on the off playfield Dmd. Sure it would be great to have some dots just like and LCD would be great with colors. But it really isn't critical. Neother that nor a buggy flasher grounds for public outrage at what is reasonably decent code in TAV otherwise.

Quoted from iceman44:

But you could sell those two to get a 100% all Jpop creation, and have some cash leftover, just sayin IF of course he actually gets these projects done and out the door as you doubt will happen

These games aren't 100% JPOP. He has a team working for him. He isn't writing all the code, drawing the art, etc.
