The Weiner is crying. Squeenix has confirmed that the Japanese version of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 has been delayed until an unspecified “Spring 2009” release. Add at least 6 months to that for a North American release and you’re probably looking at holiday 2009 for more Disney/Squeenix fun.

 

Achievement Whores Rejoice!

Can you achieve your way out?

Can you achieve your way out?

From Armor Games comes Achievement Unlocked, a deceptive puzzler platformer where the achievement is the game.

We played it for a while and were really entranced. It’s more than just a fun comment on achievements. The first half or so are easy to get, but after that you have to puzzle out what the game wants you to do to complete the level. It’s a Flash game, and 100% free, so check it out.
