I logged on to check for any news of a release date (Christmas adverts reminding me that December creeps ever closer) to see that the general view is that we will not see C3 until next year. I do not disagree with anything said above about the desirability of running a development blog or giving more information about the game because silence and the repetition of basic information that has not changed since June simply fosters enmity between developer and fan base. Given that the idea of C3 appears to be to facilitate fan involvement in future development and mod making it is not helpful to leave fans guessing. It would, perhaps, make better sense to announce the game only when important dates such as release date and pre-order dates have been negotiated and finalised and then we would not be left in the dark worrying that C3 may not see the light of day. That having been said it is, after all, only a game so nothing to get stressed about and normally when I post something along these lines there is a sudden flurry of activity and screen shots that leaves me a little red faced for having complained. Hopefully it will happen again!
