The surprisingly awesome Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay video game, which was released in 2004 for original Xbox is being shoved back in the womb, and let sit for a bit longer so it may be shot back out for the Xbox 360, PC, and Playstation 3in the spring of 2009. And it’ll be even more awesome.
You don’t believe me that it was awesome? Just read this testimonial:

Reset Oh, yes? Me?
BurnTheBlueSky: Uh yes, you sir, game of the year, 2K4?
Reset Oh that’s definitely The Chronicles Of Riddick: EFBB.
BurnTheBlueSky: Really? Even better than Doom 3? Silent Hill 4? Fable?
Reset Oh yeah, no doubt.
BurnTheBlueSky: Even more mind blowing than Halo 2? Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal? Half-Life 2?
Reset Oh for sure.
