Sega's squad-based shooter Binary Domain was originally scheduled to arrive on Valentine's Day, but the game and its release date have split up.

Now you don't have to decide between flowers or Binary Domain for Valentine's Day.

A new trailer for Binary Domain reveals that the game is now scheduled to arrive on February 28 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America. No mention was made of a European release date, and as of press time, Sega had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.

Binary Domain is set in Tokyo in the year 2080, a time when humans are locked in battle with robots. In the game, players take control of a human peacekeeping team set on regaining control of the city. However, as the peacekeepers continue their fight against the robots, they begin to ponder whether or not they are becoming robotic or robots are becoming human. The game is the latest project from Toshihiro Nagoshi, who is best known for his work on the Yakuza and Super Monkey Ball franchises.

The game looks a bit more challenging than Gears on Hardcore, but can't say I'm not charmed. Well, just wandering why all the good games have to be released after my semester starts.

Not saying it's impossible to have a good Japanese squad/cover shooter, but looking at games like Quantum Theory and Mindjack, the odds aren't great. Why waste time making games in a genre that a Japanese audience won't care much about and that American and European devs have more experience with? I mean, there are plenty of genres that Sega has a better chance with. Japanese and Western developers have got to realize that they don't need to reinvent each others' wheels when they both have different, equally good wheels that they should stick to.

A console exclusive shooter? Can't say I care.
