Looks like a fun cartoonish Heavy Metal FPS/RPG.

Have had my eye on this for sometime now, the game looks ridonkulously awesome. Looks like everything I wanted Fallout 3 to be and wasn't so I am totally psyched. Will probably be my other day zero purchase for 2009.

Wow, lots of good games coming in this year. This one is added to my list. I like the multiple inspirations (seems like a mix of Halo, CoD, WoW, Fallout 3, XIII)

Glad to see people liking the cell shaded style. The game was originally going to look more like Fallout 3 "realism". I am really gald they changed it up. Just adds another level of interest for this game, well at least to me. Many people did not like the change.

Hm, PC version is delayed a week (Oct. 26). Not too bad a delay considering though. Will give me more time to mess around with Batman I guess.

Steam has 10% off as well for pre-orders.
I think I am going to wait for the box and pay full price for this one. I love the cover art so much I feel like it needs a space on my shelf. :)
