Worms 3D? On Xbox?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Dammit!

 

I called up a local Gamestop on Monday, they said it would be out next Wednesday. No problem-o I thought. My Worms 3D itch would be scratched next week.

 

Well, my pals and I all really wanted to check it out last night, so one of them picked it up on the 'Cube. Good fun. But, the person who picked it up was told by the EBGames clerk that the Xbox version wouldn't be out until July 22. Sure enough, the EBGames website says the same.

 

Even though I'd rather have the delays than a buggy product, I was really geeked about it coming out next week.

 

Here's to hoping it ships in July!

I wonder what could be so different between internet play on the PC and Live play on the Xbox that requires so much extra time.

 

Certification by Microsoft. It's a seperate process to the regular QA process, and equally as stringent with a whole bunch of TRCs to meet.

You'd think maybe they could pick up the phone and give Microsoft a call saying, "Hey, we're having trouble implementing some Live aspects, could ya help us out?"

Yup, 8/2 it is (until they delay it again).

Now I'm not so sure I'll buy it since Worms Forts: Under Siege is due to ship only two months after Worms 3D (10/1).

 

Does anyone have details on Worms Forts (almost typed worms 'farts')? Will it have online multiplayer like Worms 3D? All I know is that it adds the building of defendable forts to the Worms 3D style.

That's it, I'm cancelling my pre-order!

 

With ESPN football coming out next week, and (hopefully) Rainbow 6: Black Arrow soon after that, there will be no time for Worms before Halo 2.

 

If you all swear it is totally awesome after it comes out, maybe I'll reconsider.

Pretty much - more team focused with the addition of buildings etc, capture the flag etc I believe.

 

Either it's going to get delayed or Worms3D will just quietly slip away from the US release list. Note that Worms3D came out a long time ago in Europe without XBL support - this was an addition for the US release...
