Shellshock: Nam '67 Gold and Delayed

This Eidos Profit Warning (thanks Frans) shares Eidos' concern about their margins for this fiscal year, combining the contradictory news that ShellShock: Nam '67, their upcoming Vietnam shooter is both complete, and delayed. That's right, in spite of pronouncing "ShellShock: Nam '67, has been approved on PS2, is completed on PC and Xbox approval is expected imminently," the article goes on to warn not to expect the game's release until September, citing a soft market and a traditional summer slow season as the reasons for this unusual move:
On May 20, 2004, the Company reported that the recent and unexpected softness in the games market, particularly in the US, was negatively impacting unit sales of Hitman: Contracts even though it was charting well in Europe and the US (and continues to do so). Since that time, this market trend has not reversed and the industry is about to enter the traditionally quieter summer period for game sales. Given these circumstances, and notwithstanding that the game is now ready to release, the Board has decided to hold the release of ShellShock: Nam '67 until September so as to provide this important new franchise with a better opportunity to deliver its true potential.

Done but not released? Can you HL2 will be out in September 2003? Can you say WMD in Iraq?

These guys are all liars. You might think that is harsh. Listen to this story.

There is a show called last comic standing on TV. The judges were drew carey, brett butler and 2 other people I forget. The show was them judging comics to go live in a house and do the survivor bit.

The show is held and the occupants of the house are picked. When they are done, Brett Butler says "This is bull%%## and walks off camera. They show her go to the losing comics and say "We did not vote for those people on stage. You guys got shafted".

Then they show drew carey talking to the shows producer. Drew carey looks at the camera and says the people chosen are bullshit. The producer then admits that it was not just the comics voting. He says that the production people were voting also. They just "forgot" to tell Drew and Brett and the other judges.

The comics chosen were chosen by the producers, even though all the hype for the show said "Panel of 4 judges starring drew carey will chose the comics". Drew was angry they had paid him to be a face while the producers made the decisions.

The producers chose about 3 good comics and 7 people for fireworks. 3 or 4 ho's, a black man bragging about the size of his penis, 1 guy who is a jerk and guaranteed to start fights when the house is filmed.

Everyone is a liar. Most of what you see in the press is a lie.

Growing up us really a disappointment.
