The Darkness II slips to early 2012

The Darkness II has been pushed from its previously scheduled October 4th, 2011 release to February 7, 2012 in North America and February 10, 2012 internationally.

It's probably not the last game to move out of the crowded holiday season of releases. Instead of competing with games like Gears of War 3, Rage, Batman: Arkham City and Battlefield 3, it will now be up against Inversion in February.

Perhaps 2K Games took a look at the sales of some of Namco Bandai's last new IPs, like Enslaved and Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, and figured that it didn't have much to fear from the competition?

Armchair psychology: Why we keep playing bad games

Why I love The Last of Us multiplayer, in a nutshell

We're outnumbered, down to our last pair of lives. The clock is ticking, it's as much of a threat to my team's survival as the four armed men bearing down on our position. I don't like our chances, not one bit, but moments like this, they're the reason I play the game.more

I never thought Super Mario Bros. would make me so angry

In a cramped beachside arcade, sandwiched between Galaga and Mortal Kombat 3, sits my white whale. It's surrounded by restaurants, a roller coaster, churro vendors, and a carousel, this sad little Super Mario Bros. arcade cab...more
