We sit down with the team at Xbox's first-party studio World’s Edge to talk about the journey to bring Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition to Xbox.
Age of Empires 2 on Xbox - The Big Interview
One of the most visually stunning and immersive science fiction games we’ve experienced.
Dead Space Review - A Remake You’d Cut Off A Limb For
Forspoken is a game that consistently fails to deliver, despite some lofty ideas, and manages only to impress in the most obscure moments.

Unless you are planning to VPN Steam so it thinks you are in the States (it unlocks there later today) to allow you to unlock the PC version you wont be playing till 10am Friday.

Honestly Steam has had the release date of the 19th for a long time and the timer counted down to 4am this morning and once again just before it got to zero it reset and 3 days so many hours were added.

It's release date in stores here is the 21st but unless you are planning to buy the console version you wont be able to play the PC version till Friday the 22nd as it uses Steamworks.

I pre ordered the GF a copy for her B-day so I will be in 2 days. Or I'll be watching her play, either way I'll get to play it at some point.

The Australia Post tracking feature says it currently at Underwood Business Centre. That being said, their tracking feature is a little vague.

Think I'll wait for a couple of reviews before grabbing this, I'm still not too sure about Obsidian's handling of it.

DLC has just been announced and apparently it will be "exclusive" to Xbox 360...no other details so far except expect it this holiday season.

If the game is on 3 platforms they should all get the DLC's FFS.

Aren't a lot of people on the New Vegas team original fallout/2 DEVs? IMO this indicates a potentially better game than Bethesdas take on the fallout universe.

Pretty sure it's private, I had to enter a 'comp' to win tickets and the comp has since closed.

I don't think this can be a bad game. It'll either be excellent or just more fo3, which would be fine really. but let's hope it breaks into 'excellent' territory :)

Based on the reviews it sounds like it'll be a good game...especially after a patch or two.

If anyone is desperate to go to the special release event that HeardY mentioned above, ive got a spare ticket for you and a friend to go tomorrow. its in sydney and you both must be over 18. message me if you want it :)

I also heard that new vegas is gonna be great!, i cant wait to try out those new weapons and do the quests. Im very picky at doing everything and everything in a game, especially one as big and open like new vegas.

Heh, I remember that. 20MB patch just to get the game to stop crashing, that took a while on dial-up.

That actually s**** me. Are Australian fans less deserving then those of other countries? I've never been able to get my head around it.

Make a world wide release date or gtfo
