Insecticide released! (DS version, anyways) 12 Mar, 2008, 20:53 / 23 comments

I know you have it marked on twelve different calenders and that you've been camping-out at your local gamestore for three weeks now, and that this is completely unnecessary because you're so excited about this a small hospital staff are continuously walking around you and reviving you as your blood vessels blow-up with excitement and drown you in a pool of blood, but it feels like I have to: Insecticide, the cradle of all that is awesome, is released.

Plus, I'm pretty sure I don't have to remind you again that it is mathematically and scientifically proven by world-renowned scientists in Zürich that this game will make you the most desirable chunk of male (or female, if that's what you want) since Casanova himself, do I?

Update: Larry Ahern has set this straight, saying that:
1. As Mojo previously reported, the DS version of Insecticide was finished and handed in to the publishers a while ago, so this delay is all down to Gamecock, and 2. the PC version should be available "soonish," which is becoming a trend. Thanks Larry!

Several Mojo staffers have had their preorders shipped already, so the DS version's definitely around - let's just hope it's in the shops too!

    Hehe, Gamecock.

    I went out and couldn't find it in shops, so I'll give it another try on Thursday. I hope they release the music on the web so we can listen to it in its high quality glory.

    My game and art book arrived just today. The book itself is a little bent worn at the edge thanks to being shipped in an envelope barely accommodating the package... but overall I am happy! Now to actually sit down and play the game.

    And I didn't know the bug blasters were limited to 1000. Here's hoping I get one...

    *bent AND worn

    That's what I get for backtracking and editing half-heartedly.

    Wow, good! So the game DOES exist!
  • The Tingler on 12 Mar, 2008, 16:36…
    I've edited the post slightly to remind everyone that we did report the DS version was finished and handed in to the publisher ages ago.

    And me and Jason can gloat about having our preorders shipped.

    Hey...sorry, gang! I know the DS is supposed to be today, or Thurs, or something. :)

    All I know is I already handed it in, so it's in the hands of the pub and retailers, who are still getting their signals straight. But it's gotta be soon!! We appreciate your patience and support.

    Also, we're putting finishing touches on PC part 1, so that'll follow soon (again, quoting me on dates obviously doesn't work, but you can quote me on "soonish").

    I'm looking forward to the PC release

    Hey Larry, thanks for stopping by!

    I've left things in the pub too, and they've gone astray so I feel your pain...

    I know, I usually spill my drink down my trousers too...

    Okay, something's really messed up.

    Gamecock's website says it's out today, yes, out NOW.

    But all the advertisements say "in stores 3/13". I might attribute this to a difference between being "released" and being "in stores", but it's a fine difference indeed, and shrivels in light of new evidence: a new trailer that says "in stores 3/15".

    What is actually going on, and has anyone actually played the game yet, except the press?
  • Udvarnoky on 12 Mar, 2008, 13:22…
    Somebody at least had it on the 11th because that's when my Gamestop pre-order claims to have shipped.
  • Kroms on 12 Mar, 2008, 03:40…
    I think The Tingler's has...
  • The Tingler on 12 Mar, 2008, 16:27…
    Yep, my preorder shipped yesterday (11th). So it must be out SOON.
  • The Tingler on 11 Mar, 2008, 16:57…
    And well done Kroms, I think you're the first person (at least this week) to post a news story without mentioning the game the story is about at all! (outside the title)
  • Kroms on 11 Mar, 2008, 18:18…
    Awww :( I thought I edited that :(
  • The Tingler on 11 Mar, 2008, 16:56…
    My preorder's been shipped from the fastest, cheapest and best importer around - Videogamesplus. And so's my copy of Super Smash Bros Brawl and the Wii Freeloader from Datel. Sweet!
  • neon_git on 11 Mar, 2008, 16:14…
    Bah humbug! When's the pc version coming out?

    *grumbles about not everyone having a ds*
  • jp-30 on 11 Mar, 2008, 17:25…
    February 2008!
  • Kroms on 11 Mar, 2008, 16:20…
    No specific release date, sadly. I want a PC version too...
  • neon_git on 11 Mar, 2008, 17:01…
    Well I guess it can't be far off now :D

    I'm actually a little glad it's not out yet because I'm getting well into my overdraft. I need my next student loan installment - horay for debt!
  • Udvarnoky on 11 Mar, 2008, 04:35…
    Looking forward to my preorder coming in!
