The Ides Of March

7th January 2007

What?

Ok, a little over dramatic but I liked the title and the associated image. Three games are scheduled for release on 30th March 2007. (yes I know the Ides of March is the 15th, read the first sentence!)

What are those three games? Bioshock, Crysis, and strong>Timeshift. Just like Ceaser, one, maybe two will be assassinated. (Again over dramatic but that’s the kinda mood I’m in!). Assuming that they are actually released on time which would you buy? This would probably a good poll but since I have already done the most anticipated game it’s a little repetitive.

It does seem odd, don’t you think, that they schedule their games for release at the same time? If I was the TimeShift guys I would be working my employees to death to get it out a few weeks before the other two. It’s certainly behind in the promotion stakes but at least it released a Demo, previewed here on PlanetPhillip.

The prices are all very similar too; Bioshock – £29.99, Crysis – £26.99 and TimeShift – £24.99.
For me it doesn’t actually matter when they are released because I normally wait a few months to buy the games anyway, simply to let the patches be released and the price to drop. What about you?

    For me, it doesn’t matter since I never get games when they come out.

    I am a cheap whore. I admit it, :/.

  4. I would buy Bioshock forever.

    I can’t configure Timeshift demo to use the directionals keys to move; the turning function in them CAN’t be disabled :S. (played it in Spanish).

    Timeshift will be my third for that.

  6. Well, at least you can get your demo to work. I installed mine, clicked on the desktop shortcut & nothing happens at all. I’m starting to get very very discouraged with gaming altogether. Except for HL 1 & 2. Have no probs with those games.

  7. Ezequielhl see if you can edit the config file in the game folder located in program files.

    Goddess what operating system are you using?You seem to having many problems the last few days.It’s not win 98 is it?

  8. Windows XP. I just sent you an e-mail. I think it’s my crappy graphics card. 🙁

    Very probable: the demo adjusted to my PC, and all was in MINIMUM STANDARD 🙁
    My graphic card is an NVIDIA with 256 MB XFX 6200.

    AGHHHH!
