Keep this in mind ...
Well, it's nearly April, which means it's nearly my birthday again -- but that's not why I'm writing now. No, I'm writing because of an even nearer date than April 3 -- indeed, a very dangerous date for we ROBOTECH fans: April 1.
The folks at Robotech.com, on a typical April 1, will post up some outrageous and silly news story in celebration of April Fool's Day. Some years, like the year where on March 31 -- not April 1 (I think April 1 was Easter that year) -- they posted up a phony preorder for a Robotech 3000 box set, they post up honest yet remote possibilities, ticking off some people, who still hold small grudges, royally. With Shadow Chronicles looming so soon, I hope that's not the avenue they take. Usually, however, they post up a story that's obviously ridiculous, like the time they claimed they'd fired their internet staff and replaced them all with a supercomputer. Either way, my point is, take any news story that appears at Robotech.com this weekend with a grain of salt.
You know what would be funny? It would be hilarious if they posted the real, honest-to-god release date for Shadow Chronicles this weekend, then had to spend the next week assuring everyone that, yes, that's actually the real date. That would be golden.
