The Daily Hotness: Delayed Assassin (09/09/08)

On one hand, I’m glad that Velvet Assassin has been delayed. It means more time to polish the game and it won’t get lost in the sea of triple A titles coming out this year. On the other hand, it means I have to wait even longer now for the game … unless you count the fact that I’ll be getting my hands on the game later this month for a preview. The blogging life, it’s so hard.

Tiff says farewell on Podtoid, we show you the characters of Pure, BioShock is going to have a 5GB install, the first two Monthly Musings get promoted and plenty more happened on Tuesday.
