Been reading a lot of stuff around Mytheon these days, and now, it's got a release date. July 13th. Sometimes I wonder why games get the release dates they get. It might be to coincide with a specific retail event (black friday), a major electronics show (E3 or CES), or just a random date set by a project manager with too many lines on his project plan. But I totally know why Mytheon got July13th; It's the day I get back from my honeymoon so I don't miss the launch.
