According to an MTV Multiplayer Blog post, August is the most painful month to be a gamer. Historically speaking, that is. For starters, two megaton Legend of Zelda games were apparently delayed in the month of August: Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess. Lair was recently pushed back a few weeks, and if your memory is sharp, you'll recall GTA 4 has been delayed until sometime next year. All in August (or nearly in August, as the blog is careful to say).
Paranoia, or is our collective gamers' horoscope destined to bring us pain every year? At least we have Metroid Prime 3: Corruption to shine a bit of brightness on the gloomy August doom parade.
