Irrational Games announced today that their highly anticipated title, Bioshock Infinite, was being delayed yet again, but not by much.  The game is now scheduled to release on March 26th, exactly one month after the game’s previous release date of February 26th.  According to a report on IGN, Creative Director Ken Levine said the game required some additional polishing and bug fixing to deliver an experience worthy of our hard earned money (thanks Ken).  This delay is the second one to beset Bioshock Infinite as I am sure most of you remember its original release date of October 2012.

I don’t believe this delay will diminish anyone’s excitement for the upcoming game, but Bioshock Infinite has now entered a fairly crowded month for games including Tomb Raider, Gears of War Judgment, God of War Ascension and a little game called Grand Theft Auto V amongst many other high profile titles.  So while excitement may not be in jeopardy, time and money may become an issue for gamers deciding which titles to commit to come March.

What say you reader?  Will this delay affect your gaming in the month of March or will you not skip a beat?  Let us know in the comments and for everything Bioshock Infinite and gaming keep it tuned to The Gamer’s Abstract.

This game just can not catch a break.  The Last Guardian has been the victim of many delays and last month it was rumored that the creator of ICO (and Shadow of the Colossus) Fumito Ueda had left Sony to pursue other ventures.  Since that rumored surfaced things were looking pretty bleak for The Last Guardian.  However it has since been confirmed by many news outlets that Ueda will finish The Last Guardian and that the title is still in production.  Great news right?  I’d say so, until today.  According to a report on Gamasutra the game has lost its Executive Producer Yoshifusa Hayama to the social gaming company Bossa Studios.  The attrition rate of important figures surrounding this game is absolutely astounding.  Who are they going to lose next?  Hopefully no one, but at this point it is hard to tell.  With so much ambiguity surrounding this title to begin with it begs the question; is there something wrong with the production of The Last Guardian?  Is there trouble in paradise over at Sony?  These questions will be answered sooner than later I suspect.  Until then stay tuned for more news regarding The Last Guardian and as always you can follow us on Twitter @GamersAbstract and like us on Facebook for more content.
