Blockbuster refuses to rent the Xbox version, saying they aren't allowed to for some reason. If it's the publisher that is preventing them from renting it, that doesn't give me much hope in the game. Guess I won't be playing it. I rarely buy games anymore, besides I've heard it has a ton of bugs so I won't be taking any chances.

Play have now got the pc version listed for release on 24/02/06.

Might pick up the box version though as it's only £17.99!

Ooh I can't wait to play this one. It's on my GameFly.com list. It's gotten excellent reviews!

My roommate is playing it and as I watch it there are a few things that strike me as very good. The non-existent interface is one of them. The creepy, unique atmosphere is another.

What really struck me was how the NPC's and human baddies seem really distorted and caricatures. Even their voices are gruff and unrealistic. And yet, it feels totally realistic to be there and not cartoony at all. Kudo to the design of this game!

Umm, I wouldn't trust what Play.com has it listed for. They (as in: all stores) just make up a date if there's no official info.

So, the release dates for the PC version are here, and it's out 23rd/27th March in Europe/NA respectively. Who's getting it?

Sorry about that. By "here" I meant "officially announced both on the website and by way of press releases and what-not" .

Just pre-ordered Oblivion collector's edition (which is strangely enough thesame price as the regular version on Bol.com) Oh man that and Dreamfall are going to cost me so much time

One thing that is crazy in 2006, is the amount of interesting games coming out before summer, it's KAHREIZZZII I tell you.

Dreamfall, Oblivion, Call of Cthulhu, Phoenix Wright, Metroid Prime: Hunters, New Super Mario Bros... and many more.

Holy crap...

This game made a big, aggressive sportsman friend of mine scream like a cheerleader at one point.

Spoiler:
When in the grocery store, we were trying to get through the trapdoor. We turned around to descend the ladder, and standing right there was one of the messed-up-looking cops, just staring at us. My friend leapt out of his chair and covered his face, making a sound like a pig being slaughtered.


I can honestly say this is one of my favorite games of all time.

Excuse my initial, er, scepticism, but it's been so (no actually: SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO) long.

That's OK .

I'm trying to decide whether to crack over this. I'm not a huge horror fan (ok, I admit it, I'm a chicken), but this looks interesting.

And if that wasn't enough, later this year we will possibly see:
Gothic 3 (which I wait more for than Oblivion, which I also preordered), Dark Messiah of Might & Magic (from the Arx Fatalis team!), Nintendo Revolution (including the new Zelda).

And... In the movies Xmen 3, Superman...

Crazy year for time killing.

Yeah, I can't wait to see Superman Returns. I have waited Superman's return for so long...
