Narrative adventures have come back in a big way over the past few years, with Telltale legitimising their existence again with a string of fantastic series. Square Enix got into the game last month, with the first episode of their own Heavy Rain styled adventure, Life is Strange. The first episode seemed to be pretty great, setting up a tale that would be fleshed out every six weeks with new episodes. It’s too bad then that the next chapter has been delayed.
GTA V has been a on long road to PC - and taking wrong turns at nearly ever junction possible. Just a few short days before the game was set to launch in January, Rockstar set back the PC version back to March, along with a window for the eagerly anticipated Heists mode. Heists are still on track for launch, but GTA V on PC has been delayed yet again.
Dying Light is easily my favourite game this year so far. It’s got some story and pacing issues, and a great deal of that open-world bloat – but they’re issues that can be easily ignored because it’s just so much fun. It’s been available digitally for about a month now, with its physical release delayed until this week. Unfortunately, it looks like that local release has been delayed again.
Project Cars may just be the racing game that everyone has been waiting for. It's promising gorgeous graphics and design, plus realistic driving. While this community-based experience may be awesome, we'll have to wait a bit longer to know for sure.
January is usually a month that is deader than disco when it comes to new releases. This year however, it’s getting at least one high profile release in the form of zombie survival parkour title Dying Light. At least digitally, that is. Because you’re going to have to wait a while to get your hands on a physical version of the game.
Well, physical copies of the game have been, it seems. Dying Light won’t be arriving in store shelves for a January 30 release, for unknown reasons.
The game that nabbed the title of the most anticipated game of 2015, has been delayed. Yes, The Witcher 3 has moved from its February release date, to somewhere ion the middle of May. In an open letter to gamers, CD Projekt RED confirmed the delay.
Exclusives help sell specific consoles. Some help more than others - I'm convinced that Bloodborne will be great for PS4 and when the next Halo releases it will be god's gift to Xbox One owners. There are a few other exclusives in the works, but one has just been delayed out of the Holiday launch window, into 2015.
Bloodborne is one of the most anticipated PS4 exclusives coming next year. It appears to build upon all the lessons learned from Souls games, and will harness the power of the new generation console to bring us the most impressively horrifying game to date. But it needs a bit more time for release.
Well that’s certainly not the way you’d like to kick off your weekend if you’re a racing fan. Project Cars, one of the most anticipated racing titles ever, isn't going to be launching this year anymore. Instead, it's suffered a bit of a delay.
Assassin's Creed Unity was delayed by two weeks. After originally announced a launch date of 31 October, the game is now coming 14 November. I know that I can only get so much done in two weeks, so what will the crew at Ubisoft be busy with in that time period? Mostly bug fixing and balancing.
Since eXCheez has been asking me to cover the Pillars of Eternity news beat for a while, I thought that I’d oblige him today. With bad news. Heyo!
The third and final DLC installment for Dark Souls II was due out this Wednesday. Unfortunately, locals won't be able to spend their public holiday playing it - it's been delayed on all platforms.
Are you ready to rumble? Well, you might have to keep those rumblings ready for a little bit longer, at least if you're planning to play WWE 2K15 on PS4 for Xbox One. The game has been delayed, making October even less of a launch window battle royale - but cementing November as the main event.
Oh how we love to hate EA. Sure, we have good reason considering the broken and money-grubbing games they've put out recently. However, they are trying to shift their priorities, hopefully resulting in better games for all of us.
