EA and Lionhead Descend onto Store Shelves with Black & White 2 for the PC (thanks Frans) has word that Lionhead's god game sequel is headed to stores in the U.S., while this press release says the U.K. version is due on October 7. Also, the Black & White 2 News Page offers a link to a new community update, both the news page and that update referencing plans to release the first minor patch for the game on October 6. Here's a bit from the announcement:

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 4, 2005--Will you be an evil or benevolent deity? Electronic Arts (Nasdaq:ERTS - News) and Lionhead Studios today announced that Black & WhiteŽ 2 has begun to ship to retail outlets for the PC. From the creative minds of god game developer Peter Molyneux and RTS-creator Ron Millar, Black & White 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed hit Black & WhiteŽ.

"Everyone at Lionhead is very proud of what they have achieved with Black & White 2 -- it is a monumental task these days to complete a mass market game. I'd like to thank the whole team for all their hard work and EA for their support," said Peter Molyneux, Managing Director, Lionhead Studios.

Nope, tomorrow Creston, tomorrow, today is the ship date, just another fucked up EA press release. Just read over at Gameguru.com that in a snippit of a interview, tomorrow is the US, UK and someplace else Shelf date, and the 14 for the other people heh.

I know
I had already invaded my local EB, to hear that it was tomorrow. FUCK those misleading press releases.
Oh well, I "pre" ordered it and got my free Tiger creature, and my wife's picking it up for me after work, so no real harm done.

Ofcourse, he already HAD it in the store, just wasn't allowed to sell it yet. I still need to get more familiar with the guys in this new store, I couldn't persuade him to sell me one already.

So far I've put in at least 10 hours (not hardcore mind you) and I have a major feeling I'm nowhere near halfway though the game. But then again my curiosity was killing me so got a trainer and figured out how to make the character age and be a 'light side/dark side' person. And I must say to speed up the process and watch your characters face actually transform was pretty interesting to watch. That and I'm trying to figure out how to get my first wife, then as many more wife's as possible


Yeah, I'm having a huge amount of fun with Fable too. Great game

I've recently taken to running around in a full suit of Plate Armour with a big Chicken hat on my head. Dressed like that, I basically look... well, like a giant armoured chicken.:)

Best part is that I'm so renound that all the women in town instantly fall in love with me as I stroll past!

Funniest damn thing ever.

After Black & White shipped some two years late, I still have a bad taste in my mouth from the awful gameplay. It remains the most overhyped game ever.

Suffice to say, I'm not buying Black & White 2. They burned their bridges into my wallet.

Ships today, out tomorrow.
Only those in immediate proximity would receive it today.
Wishing they would make a BW that was more god/creature than RTS,
Ray

Ok, so I went by BB and Fry's, neither had it. So is it really out today, or just shipped today?

Shit I don't know now, I can't find the titles and systems other than SNES (which I didn't have so that ain't it) and PC. Oh well, all I know is I put a hell of a lot of time into that first Populous game.

I remember a cartridge version, I'm pretty sure was for the Genesis...

/edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Populous There ya go. I probably played it first on Commodore then on Sega.

/edit2: Looking at screen shots makes me miss surrounding the opposing populous with quick sand and death marsh. hahahahahha That game is the sheeeot.

Yes, I mentioned SEGA because I believe I first played Populous on the Sega Master System. I may be wrong....

You know that Molyneux made Populous, right? Back in the Bullfrog days.

Reminds me of Populous. I had the first B&W and lost interest after throwing people and animals in the water to fend for themselves.

A new populous game would be cool. I still remember playing the original on SEGA?

Save your money and buy Oblivion instead.

Just got done watching its 20 minute gameplay video and all I have to say is "HOLY SHIT!"

Glad I just bought that new X800 card.

Well I was itching for something nin, and I had the money to blow (damn drug dealers never around when ya need them), sooo picked this up.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm not picking on ya. I'd (really) like to play it. But every review talks about how short it is, so $30 or under is my limit...
