Big mouth Jones is his new nickname!

For me this isn't just good news, it's needed news. I was worried there would be a bunch more Tromas released which would have sucked so seeing this release is great to know.

It may be needed news, ust not news that should have been made public just now.

I'm also surprised Alan Jones and Stephen Thrower weren't subject to an embargo, similar to when film critics have to wait until a certain date before letting the thoughts known, as this has taken all the steam out of the official announcement.

It's great news, but it's a shame it became public knowledge this way.

They probably are subject to an embargo and have just chosen to ignore it. Well, actually, in my experience it's not so much an embargo in these cases as a "gentleman's agreement" that it'll be kept quiet until the official announcement.

I usually know about titles a bit ahead of time and don't find it hard to keep quiet. It's not that hard... Look at me, not saying anything.

Ah well, I would've looked forward to me or Kyle springing this one on you. As it happens, not so much fun now...

There's still all the specs to get excited about though, which come with the official announcement. But I agree, I don't know why he couldn't have kept quiet.

I was really toying with the idea of ignoring Jones' tweet and not saying anything but figured there was no way it wouldn't be picked up by someone on here or another forum

Is it really that much of a surprise Arrow are finally releasing it?
And in way, Alan has created a buzz for it, with fans waiting to see the specs, artwork etc.

I can't imagine Stephen Thrower letting this sort of thing slip.

That leaves a very short list of other suspects
