A recent Square Enix press release
has dropped some rather unfortunate news in our laps: Just Cause 2
won't be hitting North American store shelves until March 23, 2010 (or March 26 for Europe, Australia and the Middle East). That's quite a ways past the title's original Q3 2009 launch date
-- in fact, that's two whole Qs
later than we initially hoped.
Oh, well. It's difficult for us to get in a huff about the game's distant launch date. See, as soon as we feel the huff approaching, we simply watch a bit of Just Cause 2
's grapple-and-parachute-centric gameplay
, and then we feel inexplicably soothed
to our very core.
