Upcoming Releases

Because people have been asking me about these ones, and are apparently too apathetic to trawl the web themselves:

* Spore is coming to PCs in September, but the Creature Creator tool is being packaged separately and will be available from June 17. No firm word on whether those are US or Australian dates but, as the publisher is EA and it's a Western-developed game, a simultaneous release is not out of the question.

* There's a new Prince of Persia on the way for Xmas 2008, slated for 360, PS3 and PC, possibly entitled Prince of Persia Prodigy. It's the Ubisoft Montreal team involved (who did the previous games plus Assassin's Creed) so chances are it'll live up to the good name of its predecessors.

* Australia should finally be getting Super Smash Bros Brawl on June 27. If you're one of the maybe four people who haven't imported it yet then this is your chance to get in on the awesome.

* Ace Attorney: Apollo Justice reaches Australia on May 9. I've had an import copy sitting on my shelves for a few months already, even though I haven't played Trials and Tribulations yet.

And for your information, no, I don't care that I could be playing Grand Theft Auto IV right this moment.

Yeah. I don't see how the game could possibly live up to the hype at this point. The packaging of the creator tool separately sounds like EA is expecting the game to substantially underperform after what by all accounts has been an incredibly costly development, and they're trying to pull in as much cash as possible before the reviews start hitting the streets.

Pish posh, you cynic. Spore is (probably) not going to become the next DNF, even before DNF stops being the current DNF, and for this we should all be thankful. :)

I think you're overlooking the "Forever" part of Duke Nukem Forever. DNF will NEVER stop being the current DNF. That's just how awesome Duke Nukem is.
