Final Fantasy X, Warcraft III and Rayman
Final Fantasy X flies off the shelves, Warcraft III is taking it's time getting to shelves, EA snags a big name for it's games and your fave worms are hooking up with Rayman and going 3D.
It's a busy week in the world of games. Games are flying back and forth, deals are being signed all over the place and everything is busy, busy, busy. Here's a look at what's going on.
Final Fantasy rocks. The movie kicks butt and the game just took over in Japan. The very first day the latest Playstation 2 version, Final Fantasy X, went on sale it was a big blowout. People were snapping up copies of the game faster than you can super-size your fries. By the time the stores were done for the day they'd sold almost two million copies of the hit game.
While Final Fantasy X was flying out of stores Blizzard announced that Warcraft III isn't gonna make it out in time for Christmas. Their latest and greatest Orcs vs. Humans war game is behind schedule and you'll have to hold tight until early 2002 to get your copy. This isn't a big surprise. Blizzard did the same thing to me when I wanted Starcraft. It rocked but I had to wait until April, how long do you thing this'll take?
Electronic Arts (EA) isn't slowing down, they're picking up speed and a ton of new big name games on the way. They're working on making Harry Potter video games and rumor has it that they've just nailed down The Lord of the Rings for a game based on the movie. This means that EA is gonna be one busy bunch of brainiacs with all of it's new games.
Coming from way out of left field is news about Team 17's worm warriors from Worms: Armageddon and other games. The aggressive annelids (worms) are teaming up with Rayman and taking to the high seas in 3D. Ubi Soft is working with Team 17 to bring these funny fighters to life with Worms: Blast for the Playstation 2, Computer, Game Boy Advance and GameCube. These guys are invading everywhere.
