Square-Enix seems to be having trouble these days...
Looks like we'll have to wait a bit longer for this game, as Square-Enix needs time to remove its head from its ass.
Square Enix said in a statement it is delaying the rollout of the latest installment in its "Deus Ex" game series until the financial year starting in April. It had initially planned the launch for the January-March quarter.
The company is also postponing the launch of "Final Fantasy 14" for Sony's PlayStation3 game console for an unknown period. The game was originally slated to hit store shelves in March in Japan.
The trailers for this game looked cool, for what little gameplay they actually show.

As expected, some games will have complications after the Tsunami and Earthquake. - UPDATED-
Most of you may know what happened in Japan, it was truly horrifying and continues to leave many of problems. Ofcourse this leads to news about what happens to some games.
DISASTER REPORT 4 by Irem for the PS3 was cancelled after the events in Japan. The game actually starts with a massive earthquake and you must help people out. Ofcourse this would be a extremely touchy subject to anyone ; too soon. With that being said, the company simply cancelled the game without reason and apologized to fans awaiting.
MOTORSTORM 3 Japan release has gone from the 17nth of this month to TBA. "Various Circumstances" are the reason of delay. But ontop of that, Sony's repair and information center has been halted because some services work from Miyagi Prefecture which was damaged in the Earthquake. PSN will still work, but minor issues may occur like content updates not showing or problems connecting.
FINAL FANTASY XI AND XIV are unavailable this week. Square Enix shut the services down to reduce power consumption due to many energy shortages. Because of the stop, April service for final Fantasy XI will be FREE. After the first week of suspension, more info will be posted on whether they will continue having it offline or not for XXXXX ammount of time.
METAL GEAR SOLID ONLINE is also being suspended, by Konami. This is another attempt to cut back on power. The restart date is still not known for the servers.
YAKUZA 4 was supposed to be released March 17. Sega announced that it is now TBA for " various reasons"
Many wishes to Japan on getting back on their feet, it's going to take a lot, but it will happen :) Leave your comments and thoughts below.
Portal 2 release dates slips. Valve thinks it okay though, claims the shortest delay in the history of the company.
I just received an email from Valve stating that Portal 2 will now be released on April 18, 2011. Valve claims this shortest delay in history. I think they are trying to be lol. But some gamers may not be too happy about it. I'd rather a good game be delayed then a shit game be released. And it's only two months. Here's the email I received.
"VALVE ANNOUNCES SHORTEST DELAY IN VALVE HISTORY
Valve today announced that Portal 2 -- the sequel to the ground-breaking title that won over 30 game of the year awards, despite missing its original ship date -- will now be available the week of April 18th, 2011. This two month slip not only marks the shortest delay in Valve's proud tradition of delays, it represents the approaching convergence of Valve Time and Real Time. Though this convergence spells doom for humanity, it will not affect the new Portal 2 release date."
Until then, enjoy some of other Gouki.com Portal 2 stories.
Now June 14th in the US and June 10 everywhere else.
A special message from Randy Pitchford
I hesitated in labeling this "news" as we are talking about Duke Nukem Forever here.
According to ME3's Facebook page, don't expect ME3 until the first quarter of 2012
We're still a month from E3, but already we've got our first major release date "adjustment" of the season. I fully expect to see a few more of these "TBA 2011" games slip into next year. This is a little dissapointing, but the last Mass Effect slipped into January too, so not entirely unexpected.
KOF XIII has been pushed back :(
KOF XIII was originally supposed to be released on October 25th 2011 but plans have changed. It has been pushed back to November 22 that is a whole extra month fans will have to wait. I feel that this is a bad move from snk/atlus because they put this low profile game in with high profile november releases. Games like MW3, UMVC3, Uncharted 3, WWE 12, Zelda Skyward Sword, Assassins creed revelations and Elder Scrolls V skyrim are all being released in november. I think this move REALLY hurts KOF XIII's chance to make an impact which i feel it really needs to do. This game is a underdog among giants and im pulling for the little guy so with that being said i'll leave you with the newest trailer released today to help hype you guys up. Let us know what you think and don't be a jimmy!
The second Bioshock Infinite delay is for "extra polish and bug fixing".
Originally scheduled to be released in October 2012, Bioshock Infinite was pushed back to Feb 26, 2013 a while back to make the game "into something even more extraordinary". Well, I guess it's about to get even more extraordinary-er. The game has now been pushed back one extra month. This time the delay is for "extra polish and bug fixing". Here's hoping they live up to that extra level of polish!
Bioshock Infinite will now release on March 26, 2013.

A message from Ken Levine details reasons for pushing the game back a few months to add extra polish and make the game "into something even more extraordinary".
Originally slated to release this October, Bioshock infinite has now been pushed back until February 26, 2013. This isn't too big a surprise, the original Bioshock was released late too and given that I'll still be playing Borderlands 2 when this was originally scheduled to come out, I see this as good news. By all means, make a perfect game! Just don't get stuck in that Duke Nukem mode, LOL!
Here's part of what Ken Levine has to say (read the whole thing at the source link):
When we announced the release date of BioShock Infinite in March, we felt pretty good about the timing.
Since then, we’ve come to realize that some specific tweaks and improvements will make Infinite into something even more extraordinary. Therefore, to give our talented team the time they need, we’ve decided to move the game’s release to February 26, 2013. We wanted to let our loyal (and very patient!) fans know this as soon as possible.
I won’t kid you: BioShock Infinite is a very big game, and we’re doing things that no one has ever done in a first-person shooter. We had a similar experience with the original BioShock, which was delayed several months as our original ship date drew near. Why? Because the Big Daddies weren’t the Big Daddies you’ve since come to know and love. Because Andrew Ryan’s golf club didn’t have exactly the right swing. Because Rapture needed one more coat of grimy Art Deco.
Well, one less game I'll be seeing at 2K's booth at E3 this year.

Up until a few weeks ago, early March was looking extremely crowded...
And another one bites the dust...
Ghost Recon Future Soldier has fled the March 6th date as well leaving us with only two games that week, Mass Effect 3 and Street Fighter X Tekken. I can't say that I'm shocked... I was shocked initially that so many games were picking the same date to begin with.
You can now expect to pick up Ghost Recon Future Soldier on May 22nd in the US. (Or just order it from Amazon and have it delivered to your door the day it comes out, release date delivery FTW!)
Originally slated for March 6th, Max dodges the ultra-crowded month and makes us wait another two.
It's officlally getting less and less crowded this March. First XCOM gets sent to next year, and now Max Payne pulls a quick bullet-time dodge into May.
Today we're proud to officially announce that Max Payne 3, the highly-anticipated dark and gritty action experience that continues the tale of former New York City detective Max Payne, will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation3 on May 15, 2012 in North America and May 18, 2012 in Europe, with the PC version launching on May 29th, 2012 in North America and June 1st, 2012 in Europe.
Another Arkham City PC delay. Yes, another.
Deja vu? I think so. According to Steam's page for Batman: Arkham City, the game has once again been delayed. First it missed the simultaneous launch and was pushed back to November 15th for "optimization", and now it's been delayed another week. Missing the October 18th launch was bad enough (although PC gamers should be glad the developers are actually taking the time to not throw out a half-assed PC port), and I know another week isn't a big deal, but I hate delays - especially these one-week delays that can't possibly amount to much in the way of changes or optimization. Maybe it was pushed back to be a bit further from the launches of Skyrim and Modern Warfare 3. I don't know, and I don't care; Arkham Asylum was amazing, and I don't feel like waiting. So here's to hoping it's worth the wait.
XCOM was supposed to be released March 6th, now it's delayed... all the way to 2013.
This is a weird one. We first saw XCOM at E3 2010. GoukiJones saw it again at E3 2011 and reported it was basically a different game. Then, last week, 2K comes out with the news that they're making another XCOM game (Enemy Unknown) which is more like the series' original roots as a strategy game.
Now comes the shocking news that XCOM, scheduled for release on March 6th (less than two months away) will be pushed back a whole year to 2013. At this rate I wouldn't be surprised if XCOM gets cancelled. WTF is going on here, 2K?
