Reset release date reset again, sad robots slip into 2017

We certainly have lost track of Reset [official site] since its just-about-successful 2013 Indiegogo. Overwhelmingly beautiful in screenshots and early footage, then even beautifuller in a second trailer, it sank into a long stretch of development with multiple delays. And now, two days short of its most recent release date, the huge project from just two people has slipped again.

Battlefield Hardline Slips An Awful Lot

Battlefield Hardlines, originally slated for 21st October this year, has now been given a significantly later release date. The Space Year 2015. "Early" 2015. On a slippy day for EA, which also saw the announcement of Dragon Age: Inquisition sliding into November, DICE's cops-n-robbers reinvention of the Battlefield series seems to have taken a much more serious hit. Apparently in response to what maybe wasn't…

Dragon Age: Inquisition Slips Just A Tiny Bit

Nobody expected the Dragon Age: Inquisition to be released on time. Nrrggh. The originally slated release date for what I imagine BioWare wish they could call Dragon Age 2 was 7th October, but as we all know, the Walker Principle states that original release dates will never be met. The slip, however, is only six weeks, meaning we'll now see the game on the 18th…

South Park: The Stick Of Truth Has Slipped, Again, Into 2014

Along with Watch_Dogs and The Crew, now South Park: The Stick Of Truth has fallen into next year. The game already slipped and slid when it was THQ's property, and it doesn't seem to be getting a grip on the town's famously snowy streets under its new rulership. Having previously been given the 10th December for console (although PC was conspicuously never announced, and naturally…

THQ Games Slip-Sliding About All Over The Place

Troubled THQ, as they must be sick of being called, have more bad news. Three of their biggest games have take a slip on this unseasonably early Wintry weather, with South Park, Metro: Last Light, and Company Of Heroes 2 all being announced as falling into the farther reaches of the future. But in better news - as Polygon spotted - it's confirmed that a…

XCOM: Release Date Unknown: FPS Slips To ‘Fiscal 2014’

I hope you're all now familiar enough with the Walker Principle to have assumed that XCOM wouldn't be released on its stated release date. As surely as the Sun rises in the morning and floats off into outer space, there was no chance the concerning FPS remake of the classic strategy game would appear on the 6th March 2012. And you'd have to be a…

No BioShock Infinite This Year, Not For You

Let's do this, okay: When a new game first announces a release date, let's just go ahead and ignore it. Wasn't it Einstein who said the very definition of insanity was filling a balloon with kittens and then severing off your own leg? So it is that BioShock: Infinite has declared it won't be with us this year at all. They're now looking at February…

Gotham City Impostors THWOCKed Into Feb

Gotham City Impostors, the bonkers-looking multiplayer from Monolith, has had a bit of a slip, presumably due to the icy weather. According to a press release (or "media alert" as a troubling number of people are now saying when saying their game has a new picture, etc), the 11th January release isn't going to happen. In fact, it now gets no more specific than "February",…

Trombone: Red Orchestra 2 Slips Two Weeks

Gosh, in the long gap since the last time any games were released I'd quite forgotten the ordeal of Autumnal slippage. (Those outside of the UK may not be aware that Autumn now stretches from May to November on this isle.) These long wet days leave the ground treacherous for games trying to stay on their feet. The latest project to need just a couple…

Crysis Release Moves Forward

So when is Crysis coming out? On Friday, those who had pre-ordered were emailed to let them know pre-loading was beginning on EA's online Store. It seemed to suggest the game would be unlocked on November 9th - a full week early. Well, that hasn't happened, and if you visit the Crysis site it states that the unlock will take place on Wednesday 14th. Which…
