Turok demo now due on Xbox Live [update]

We had our heart broken by Turok more than a few times in the past, so we were a bit trepidacious when he showed up on our doorstep again, clean-shaven and with a handful of flowers. But we decided, after dancing in our pajamas and eating ice cream with some of our closest female friends, that love, real love, was worth the risk.

So when we saw Major Nelson's post that a demo had hit Xbox Live Marketplace we'll admit we were a bit excited. We found one of the black dresses from our college days that still fits, put on our best perfume. And then hopped on to Xbox Live to find that he was nowhere to be found. We're sitting there all alone just listening to the violinist and eating breadsticks, waiting for him to arrive. What's worse, people in the UK say they've already seen him! We'll let you know when he gets here, but he better have a great excuse. Unless he comes in missing an arm and with velociraptor teeth marks on his head, we are finished. Again.

Update: Major Nelson has updated the post to say that two-timer Turok will be available in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan and United Kingdom. Or in other words, not in North America. Now, if you'll excuse us, we have to go buy a pint of Chunky Monkey and take a long bath.
