Play-Asia
  • Lara Croft

    February is starting to get crowded.

    • Budgiecat

      February is for lovers so an orgy is expected…

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    Joins The Order: 1886, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and Dying Light..

    I’m sure more will come to further fill in February, too.

    • MrFinalgamer

      Isn’t Arkham Knight coming out in February too? I think these developers are forgetting the existence of March, and April…

      • Anime10121

        May, June, and July would like some attention as well, as I think the last “major” summer console release was Metal Gear Solid 4 in 2008:(

        • Unretributed

          Destiny incoming!

        • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJG980wYNJwltAB3JeT5euA SegaSaturnSNK

          Hope Phantom Pain comes in the summer. As for Batman, hopefully Jan because that seems empty or at least March.

          Also, out of topic, this summer sucked giant balls. There was no major released games this summer. I’ve been so damn bored, all I’ve been playing is Marvel Heroes on the PC.

        • Zackasaur

          Wrong. :P

          The Last of Us released on 14 June last year. That was huuuuge.

          • Anime10121

            Whoops, forgot about that one… sorta makes you wonder though, both MGS4 and TLoU were summer releases and sold over 4 million copies… so why the HELL or publishers so afraid of the summer season :/

            • Zackasaur

              A game needs to be able to seriously sell itself without gifting to help propel it. It also needs to be finished in time. :P

              Even a game like CoD is frequently associated as a holiday gift from parents.

    • Anime10121

      Good thing I’m only getting one of those games! Wonder if anyone can guess which one :P

      • Solomon_Kano

        It better be The Witcher…

        • Anime10121

          We have a winner! :D

          I havent even played the prior two games in that series, but there’s no way in hell I’m missing this one! That game looks amazing in every way possible!

          • Solomon_Kano

            I have the first, which I need to finish…

            From what CDPR’s been saying though, you won’t need to play the first two games to understand 3’s story. It’ll obviously enhance it, like watching TLA before Korra, but it’s not a necessity. I’m still hoping to have finished the first and moved onto the 2nd before it comes out though.

            • Anime10121

              My PC wont play either…so I’ll have to start with the third XD

              Hopefully its true about you not needing to play the others though!

              • Solomon_Kano

                Alas. My laptop actually can run the first one, surprisingly. I don’t know about the 2nd yet, but hopefully it can play that as well.

                • Anime10121

                  Bought it a couple months ago (for like 5 bucks), installed it, and it ran at an unbearable framerate, ended up giving it to my younger brother :(

                  • Solomon_Kano

                    Damn. I got it for free. Gifted by Tyveren from the OT, so it would have sucked to get it from someone else and then not be able to use it.

                    • Anime10121

                      Well, it was only 5 bucks so I bought it just to test the limits of my crap integrated graphics, and it ran pretty much how I expected :P

    • Sky

      Grrrreat… *sigh* just love making my wallet empty. At least i can say up for a ps4.

    • Zackasaur

      Definitely prioritising The Order: 1886. <3

      But I'll probably snatch The Witcher III, Dying Light, and Arkham Knight that same month.

      Evolve would lose my interest too quickly.

  • shogunknight

    Mark my words, a lot of these ‘delayed to february titles’ will be delayed again. February seems like an early next year statement. Battlefield Hardline is also February 2015 right?

    • Infinity

      Developers are going to have no choice but to delay their games again. Allot of AAA titles coming out February, if the developers don’t want their games to be over shadow by other competition they will either need to push the game up one month or down another month.

  • DarthBrian

    This is probably my fault. I was talking to a nice young lady who works for Turtle Rock while in line to get into the exhibit hall during Comic-Con and I mentioned that October is really busy and I probably can’t get Evolve when it comes out because there are too many other things coming out the same month and can’t afford everything. Clearly she went directly to her bosses with this news and they changed the release date to accommodate my needs. I apologize. T_T

    • TheBlackRabbit

      -salute- good job son

    • Invisbin

      I blame you

      • DarthBrian

        :(

  • Invisbin

    I’m actually not upset. I’m already planning to spend at least $1,000 on video games this holiday season :(

    • http://zefhar.deviantart.com Zefhar

      USD?

      • Invisbin

        Yeah…half is going to the Xbox One, and the other half for Ps4, Ps3,Wii U, and 3ds games =/

        • Budgiecat

          and the extra $71 goes towards getting me the Godzilla game..

    • Budgiecat

      $1070

      • Invisbin

        $1,071*

  • Sky

    I’m okay with this game being delayed. I just hope it isn’t being released on the same day as The Order. Seems like another game will get delayed. Don’t know which one tho..

  • Solomon_Kano

    I’m not really surprised by this. I always felt like fall was kinda soon on a release for a new current-gen IP that was just revealed earlier in the year. Taken alone, 8 months is a good while, but in a year that has a juggernaut like Destiny a month before the original planned release, it seemed dicey.

  • Budgiecat

    I’m okay with this mainly because this game looks like poopoo

  • SuperLuigi

    Played the alpha on pc. Believe it or not but this game is too slow paced for anything fun to happen till the last form.

  • Torbjorn Olsson

    Are you kidding me?! If another game gets delayed I want to scream. It’s not “ok” anymore, it’s poor planning and very unprofessional.

    I played the alpha and loved it. Was really looking forward to October 21…

  • Lightthrower

    Good! I didn’t like what I saw in the Alpha last weekend.

  • $117141671

    I want to assume it’s going to be a flop, but people said the same thing about Borderlands.

    2K desperately needs another successful IP, because I can’t imagine investors are happy with them posting a loss every quarter a Rockstar sandbox game doesn’t come out.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Six no more?

      • $117141671

        I’ll force the next bitter weeaboo who wants to fuck with me to be a little more creative.

        • Solomon_Kano

          inb4xaltmass

          • $117141671

            I’d be disappointed if they didn’t find a way to shoehorn “Xbot” or “Xboner” in there somewhere.

            • Gustavo Rosario

              This conversation confuses me…APOLOGIZE!

            • Solomon_Kano

              Xbotmas, perhaps. Though that sounds like a console warrior themed holiday…

        • Budgiecat

          “Karas” woulda been cooler…

    • 罪罰

      They should kill Gearbox so there can be less loss.

      • $117141671

        That makes zero sense.

        They don’t own Gearbox, and Gearbox owns Borderlands, which is the biggest IP Take-Two/2K publishes outside of the Rockstar stuff.

        It would probably be best not to drive them off.
