No big surprise here, but according to IGN, Deadly Creatures has been delayed until February.
Considering how much potential this game has, I'm glad they're not rushing it out the door just to cash in on the Christmas rush. I'd hate for a game that sounds as cool as this to hit the shelves unfinished and broken.

Triple post! 3-hit combo!!!
Here is an interesting article about the research the developers did for the game, including bringing a lot of spiders and scorpions into the offices, handling them (one of the developers got stung), and even eating them.
I'm glad the game got delayed - it shows THQ has some patience to not shove things out the door, particularally one of their more promising games in a long while. I hope it turns out as well as it looks thus far.

UGO has an interview with Rainbow Studios' Jordan Itkowitz. In it, he mentions that the big influences for Deadly Creatures were God of War, Metroid, and Castlevania. He also says that he thinks the direction the Wii is going in, as far as software is concerned, is "completely random and chaotic."
He also says that his favorite game on the Wii this year is World of Goo.

IGN has a new devloper diary video that focuses on the combat and the differences between the tarantula and the scorpion.
It sounds like they made some good use of the motion controls. For the scorpion, button presses are used for quick attacks while gestures are used for power moves. The tarantula uses the pointer to line up stealth kills.

Deadly Creatures got an 8/10 from frickin IGN.
Copy pasta'd from teh wiki:
IGN scored Deadly Creatures an 8/10, praising the game's refreshing premise and its "uncommonly provocative" storyline, tight controls and impressive soundtrack and graphics, but noted occasional framerate and camera problems.
An 8 from IGN is a buy in my book.
So hey, I tweet sometimes. @e107combo is the man to follow.
I tend to not rely on other reviews by their score for that very reason - each reviewer is telling their experience, and depending on what they get hung up on about, they may give a game high or low marks. This is coming from someone who writes reviews - that's what I do. If I liked or disliked something to a noticable degree, I make a point about it. I don't give scores to games - I want people to know exactly what delighted or bothered me, and a score doesn't do that. *shrugs* I'm planning on picking this up, but it will (unfortunately) be some time before that happens.
