Resident Evil 7’s free story DLC delayed

The free Resident Evil 7 [official site] story DLC ‘Not A Hero’ is delayed, Capcom have announced. The end of RE7 teased that Not A Hero would arrive in spring 2017, but now it won’t. Capcom say it wasn’t shaping up as good as the rest of the (great) game but they want it to be, so they’ll work on it a while longer. No firm word yet on when it will arrive. For the benefit of folks who’ve not yet played RE7, I’ll not say much about Not A Hero before the cut. Speaking of… Read the rest of this entry »

Post-asteroid survival RPG Impact Winter delayed

Post-asteroid survival RPG Impact Winter [official site] was due to launch next week, but it won’t. Publishers Bandai Namco have announced a delay of six weeks to give developers Mojo Bones more time to make it all shiny and awful. Which sounds peachy because Impact Winter sounds interesting. It’s a survival game with a definitive end, for one thing, as help will come if you can only survive 30 days – fewer, if you complete certain tasks. And helping you are are a small group of survivors with their own skills and stories. And it has some near-future scrappy shenanigans going on. Here, watch: Read the rest of this entry »

Gotta go slower: Sonic Mania delayed into summer

“I live my life a quarter-mile at a time,” Sonic the Hedgehog famously said. “Nothing else matters: not the mortgage, not the store, not my team and all their bullshit. For those ten seconds or less, I’m free.”

But when you look up from the asphalt, oh boy, life comes at you fast. As recently as last Friday, Sonic was telling everyone that his new throwback 2D adventure Sonic Mania [official site] would arrive in spring. And now spring is but three days away, whup! He’s pushed Sonic Mania’s release back into summer. Sonic, come on, you can’t keep living this furiously. Live fast, sure, but the fury is gonna catch you. Read the rest of this entry »

Laaag! Strafe delayed

Bloodsoaked faux-’90s FPS Strafe [official site] has been delayed a touch, publishers Devolver Digital have announced. It was due later this month, on the 28th, but is now slated to arrive on May 9th. Strafe, to refresh your memory, is a roguelikelike FPS with procedurally-generated levels, a throwback style, and so very much gore. I find the wacky exaggerated xtremeness of everything surrounding the game more obnoxious than endearing but our Adam played a bit last year and said it was good stuff. Read the rest of this entry »

Slowly, quietly: Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 delayed again

Patience is key when sniping so if you aren’t prepared for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] to be delayed time after time then it’s probably not a game for you anyway. CI Games today announced they’re bumping the stealthy first-person shooter back from April 4th to April 25th. Why the delay? Because they want to make the game better, obvs. Following feedback from their beta test, they’ve decided three weeks of tweaking would do it good. In the meantime, hey, Sniper Elite 4 is quite fun and only came out a few weeks back. Read the rest of this entry »

Tea break! Constructor HD delayed into April

Given that I once waited two years for a kitchen repair that still hadn’t arrived by the time I moved out, I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised that the Constructor remake [official site] has been delayed again. Tch, unreliable builders! With their blue jeans. And their tea. Have you noticed they drink all that tea? [Didn’t get that writing gig on My Family, eh? -ed.] Anyway, point is: the silly estate build-o-managing RTS is now scheduled to arrive on April 28th. Assuming developers System 3 aren’t too busy drinking tea and scratching their bottoms, yeah? Ha ha yeah! But they have rummaged up Boycie off Only Fools and Horses to explain the game in a new trailer. Read the rest of this entry »

Star Trek: Bridge Crew delayed again but getting TOSsy

A long time ago in a city far, far away (E3 2016 in Los Angeles), Ubisoft announced virtual reality spaceship command ’em up Star Trek: Bridge Crew [official site] for release in autumn 2016. Well! A fair few Kessel Runs later, it’s been delayed again, this time to May 30th. Many Bothans died to bring us this information but, on the bright side, they did also bring word that it’ll have an option to fly aboard the USS Enterprise from Episode IV: The Original Series. Jump to hyperspace! Read the rest of this entry »
