Just another game about a time-traveling detective who deflects knives by spitting bubblegum at them as they fly through the air at full speed. Yep, just another game...

I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

The Last Story Coming Out Tomorrow, July 31, August, What?

The Last Story
confounds me once again. Remember that this is the Wii RPG that came out in Japan almost a year and a half ago to critical acclaim, and then for some reason skipped a North American release and launched in Australia and Europe in late February this year.

We're not completely certain why it's taken this long for the title, created by former executive producer for the Final Fantasy series Hironobu Sakaguchi and composed by Nobou Uematsu who shouldn't need any introuction, to arrive in the States. It was supposed to be July 10, or at least that was the target date. There was no official announcement, but the days kept rolling along as if tomorrow was going to be itthe veritable swan song for the Wii would be sung.

I played it at an Xseed event just a few weeks before E3. I wanted it then, and I still want it now.

But now it appears that the release date has changed to July 31. At least that's according to Amazon.com and GameStop. However, there have been reports of customers calling into GameStop stores and being told that July 10 is indeed the date. (Or is it August 1st, as orangeflame88 reports below?)

And then of course, there is the issue that there has been no official announcement of the July 31 release date, either. So is this just speculative? Is it really coming out in August or some time this year? I hope not, because July 31 is the same release date as Kingdom Hearts 3D and August is chock full of distractions.

Let's hope this confusion don't *cough, cough* last.
