In the CE team's defense, this leak made it out of the beta testing pool well before the C&D occurred. Probably before February 19 judging from circumstantial evidence. That's beyond the CE team's control now, but as long as the real 98% beta that existed on May 8 didn't leak, it should blow over. The CE team did everything in its power to make sure that all known copies were destroyed, and that good faith effort at full compliance should be enough hopefully.

By the way, Faust, What's the name of the music played?

Hell yeah, That's good news. I was going to do something like this when it was released...

Anyways, I subscribed and gave all 5 stars as well. Awesome, awesome work.

It's a Sonic 3 boss theme remix.

odekam, that would be "Scrambled Eggman" by BrainCells and SnappleMan. It was an OCRemix completed for the Sonic 3 and Knuckles "Project Chaos" album. Definitely a great listen.

All of the diggit, reddit and/or w/e stuff should probably wait until more/all of the vids are out.

Anyways, good to see these go up!

There is a topic on something awful about this. They think the leak is the 98% version.

Anybody with an account or $10 wanna talk to them about it? (I don't have one)

http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3145716

The conversation turned to how much they hate the retranslation quickly

Yeah, we're 'Woolsey haters' apparently. Hopefully this is being read, 'cause the retranslation was done by Khwazit and Z out of curiosity and a sense of completion. We don't hate Woolsey in the slightest, he did a great job. It's just very interesting looking back and seeing so many differences in the scripts. If anyone could redirect their attention to the first post in this thread and the videos it'd be great.

If one of those bottom-feeder sites is trashing you, you must be living right...

I think these videos are going to generate more positive energy in the gaming community than pursuing a hopeless legal battle ever would have.  It's a pity that most will never get to play CE, but this is really the best outcome given the circumstances.  Again, really good job!  I'm really happy to have something worthwhile to watch over the next month.

I've one suggestion on the commentary, though, and that is:  When presented with choices (such as Crono's response in video 2 I believe), could you comment on the other possible outcomes?

So would we have naturally started with Crono/Magus/everyone at level 47 at the beginning? I'd assume we'd get deleveled after a certain point.

Guess it wouldn't have been fun to show you getting your butts kicked or having to level grind XD

But now we don't get any epic boss fights!
