Mafia 2 gives us the blues

Mafia 2  gives us the blues

Just delayed to Q4 2010 at best, Mafia 2 comes back with this new trailer edited with a John Lee Hooker song. And the least we can say is that it makes it even harder to wait until its release!

This game begins to be like Alan Wake. Delay upon delay. Not saying I've lost my interest, but I'm not going to follow the game anymore untill it's only 10 days away from release.

What's up with the quality of the vid, or rather, lack thereof?!

cool, with all the ps3 exclusives and other multi plats at the moment, i can do with this getting delayed, cannot wait for when it does get released though

i don't know why people complain when games get delayed!
i would much prefer to wait, and play a solid game, reather then playing half finished games, like SC-DA or PES6,7,8,9 only few companys wait for the game till is ready, so that they don't dissappoint the fans, others thing about money, that was ea strategy on the old generation gaming.

It's a fiscal quarter, which means September at the latest.

There's always a chance it will slip, but I doubt it. Out of Take Two's projections, seeing Max Payne or LA Noire slip seems a lot more likely.

the delay doesnt bother me. you get a better game at the end of the day...

whether i'll care about the game by the time it's released? who knows.

Max Payne will most definatly be a 2011 game. And i cant see them releasing LA Noire the same year as this..especially when rockstar have Red dead hitting this year too..but who knows

I just really want to get my hands on this game. The first Mafia was a prime example on how to create an engrossing story around an open world - loved it (pc version)

The whole thing is getting laughable though. Last year in August in Germany i spoke to one of the developers and he said Mafia II was definitely coming out at the beginning of 2010. I have no problems with waiting for a game, but don't make promises you can't keep. For Mafia II it's just getting ridiculous now...and i also noticed a graphical downgrade in this video. In terms of gameplay it looks great, but as for the graphics...it's nowhere near what i saw at GC in Germany last year.

That was smart, why did you do that?

About the game


What's up?
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Even if you have the money, if the place where you're gonna put your TV and the viewing distance should always be taken into account. If you don't have a big room, don't buy a very big TV. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: If you do any basic research into TVs, you will find out that viewing distance and display size are very important factors when deciding to buy a TV. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (5 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks ooo Pyre on discount and it comes out next month! I didn't even realize it was coming so soon (15 Hours ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril @Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (18 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (21 Hours ago)
