Legendary To Launch This Week

Although it slipped from the last launch date of September 30, we haven't been able to determine a new and concrete release date until now. According to GameSpot, Gamecock Media Group, fresh from being acquired by SouthPeak Interactive, has announced the new release dates for Legendary.

Originally revealed as Legendary: The Box, this atmospheric shooter is now scheduled to release on November 4 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The PC version launches a couple weeks later on November 18, and we're fervently hoping this one lives up to expectations, despite the stiff competition. You'll be facing a mythological set of enemies in an "alternate-present setting," and you're gonna have to think quick and fire fast. From what we've seen so far, Legendary has a ton of promise, but unfortunately, it has to do battle with the guaranteed blockbuster known as Resistance 2, which is set to launch on the very same day. In our opinion, it would've been better to either hit that September 30 date, or delay it into the first week of December, or something. Throwing down with R2 is a tough proposition, especially when Gears of War 2 follows only three days later. November isn't quite as stacked as October was, but the first two weeks ought to be very impressive.

Keep it here for our Legendary review, and if Spark Unlimited did their job correctly, you may have to add yet another title to that already-loaded holiday wish list.

No kidding. Atleast, Duckhunt came with a gun.

This one might be cool, guns and mythological stuff abound. Sure seems like everyone is making these "alternate universe" titles lately though.

Has anyone already read the reviews yet? The Xbox 360 version has a 50/100 on metacritic?

I'm with WaR_KiD on this one...

I was also hoping for this to be good but as soon as I saw the gameplay I was disappointed. Looks very amateurish.

I too was pulling for this title when I first heard about it. Then, I saw the videos on the PSN. The development videos looked very poor, but I still held onto some hope because early videos and betas do not always tell the whole story of the game, but the more I see about the game the more the hope is slipping away.
I really wanted this to be a good game and it still could be in all honesty, the story has great potential, but I will be waiting for PSxextreme to do a hands on review befroe I let go of 60 dollars that could be better spent on a stellar game.

i cant afford any more games, aHH!
but i will prbably just get COD5 (i know its WAW) and Resistance2. Along with motorstorm 2 and Mirrors Edge,and i might get LBP. i know its amazing, but it doesn't attract me. i'll rent it first and if it is good then i will most definitely get it.
