Alpha Protocol Delayed?
« Reply #15 on: September 28, 2009, 11:14:43 AM »
...

If it makes for a better game, that's great and everything... it's just become something of a joke how many titles have been pushed back to 2010. I was looking forward to playing a great game between now and then. For me anyway, one of the things that Alpha Protocol had going for it was the early release date. I mean, if you're talking about Alpha Protocol getting lost in the shuffle... i can't imagine it's going to do any better up against titles like Mass Effect 2, Bioshock 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction, and Red Dead Redemption among others.

If i hadn't preordered it already, i could see myself completely forgetting about Alpha Protocol in early 2010. Of course, even if i still get the game when it's released... i imagine it'll be on the back burner as i work my way through some of those other awesome titles. I tend to play completely through one game before starting another.

Anyway, the delay is still just a rumor for now. And i'd rather have a great game than a fast and dirty one that was released just to meet some deadline. Still kinda' sucks though... if it's true.

I read on the Giantbomb forums that the delay might more in the region of 8 months, pushing into the summer of 2010.  I think it could do better numbers then, and probably benefit from having some more time spent on it.  It's a shame, but the main game I want this winter is still tracking for this year: Dragon Age!

This game is FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINALY coming out tomorrow (May 28th) in Europe and June 1st in the US.


Considering how long it delayed I have a feeling its going to be disapointing so I'll wait for reviews and comments.

Same here.  Haven't seen too much in the way of that yet though.

My buddy who does game reviews just let me borrow his copy, so I'll be playing it tonight. I'll let you know if it's any good. I've been waiting for it for quite awhile as well. Hopefully it doesn't bite too much. ;)

There's a half hour Quick Look of the game at Giantbomb:

I know the reviews for it have been mixed too.  I think I'll rent it.
