    The release date on Wikipedia has always been 'Q4 2007' and I'm just wondering if anyone has heard anything (rumors or articles) about the release date? Any predictions?

    December 4 2007 according to Gamespot, which is most of the time truthful [​IMG]

    December 4 2007 according to Gamespy also, so im pretty sure its December 4 07

    There's a homebrew named Geo Wars that is a lot like Geometry Wars. Check that out to tide you over.

    Also while pulled by the maker due to a kind request (not sarcastic) by the dev'rs of Geometry Wars, you can easily still find it online by checking out the 'World Of Stewart' and doing a +Grid Wars v5.4 (or something of the like) in google.

    That sucker uses dual analog or whatever you wish and hits the gameplay damn nicely true to form, a bit too true hence the 'pull it please' request.

    Its one of my fave homebrew games, they did a nice job on it, music is good and graphics are ok. I just wish they'd spent more time on the sprites though. (wish I'd been there to add some extra tunes too)

    Well worth a look.

    [on topic] I hope Geowars gets a budget release on the Wii (unless they've added tonnes of extra stuff) Does anyone know if the DS version plays over the 2 screens (dual screen arena) or is the bottom for the controls?

    I don't think the DS version plays on two screens [​IMG] still should be an excellent game. Looks like they've come up with quite a few new ideas to keep it fresh.

    GW on DS is $30 and Wii $40.

    They're justifying the price by adding in outside of the standard mode people know a large pile of new modes and challenges to do. I have no idea what they are or if it makes it even worth the cost, but I've been told they do. Personally, I would more care unless some new mode is that damn good just to play the straight shooter so either on that price is a bit high for my tastes. And the DS one has been shown in pics/clips to just use 1 screen.

    To the guys with R4 problems try this:
    Delete sav file
    Delete nds file
    Copy nds file onto microsd again
    Start the game
    When it asks you to make a save file, say yes.

    It worked for me

    From the unknown
    In the website it saids m3 and r4 users not to make a sav. file for the game
    it would do itself.


    Hope this helps.

    I didn't even know this game was coming out for the DS! The Wii gameplay video looked amazingly fun, I can't wait to get the DS version~

    Far as I know it's delayed into December. I may not like the store, but they're the only ones with daily updated release dates... gamestop/ebworld.com

    Yeah, I also asked in Gamecrazy, and the guy said that it was pushed back to December. :\ I didn't see a paper with the release date on it or anything like that though, so I'm not 100% sure.
