Showing Slips: Dragon Age, Sims 3, Godfather II

Slipping through our fingers.

Early 2009 seemed awfully soon for Dragon Age. Especially when the console version wasn’t set until the other end of the year. It was nice to have things that way around for once, making us think of Bioware as friendly uncles who hadn’t abandoned us for our younger, more noisy cousins. Well, huff, as now they’re both set to come out together in the fourth quarter, which according to our calendar is “ages away”. Sims 3 was also due for this month, which didn’t seem realistic with the lack of hubbub, and turns out not to be. That’s now set for June. And Godfather II has been bumped until around April. Blimey, February suddenly got less interesting. Shed-load of Godfather II videos below, just for the heck of it.

Interestingly, during one of EA’s infamous financial conference calls last night, bossman John Riccitiello explained that Sims 3’s delay is to allow for more time to build the promotional campaign, Eurogamer reports. Which is a bit odd, as if the game snuck up on them.

Regarding Dragon Age, you try and figure out what this means:

“And Dragon Age, frankly, this is going to sound almost upside down but sometimes too much quality can make you reassess your options. So with Dragon Age, this is truly an epic game both in scale, quality, and innovation. And we felt that we could mount a better campaign consolidating Dragon Age PC with console later in the year. And yes, that will allow them to polish it even more. So each of them had their own story.”

It was just too good to be released!
