So the demo and the fact that this can be had for less $50 on Amazon was enough to get me to pre-order this game which I only even started looking at after I added it to this poll.

Yeah the demo was pretty badass. I'm thinking of picking this one up on release even though I have about 20 games I still need to play.

All glory to the hypnotoad.

If you like stealth, this should be great. The combat was incredibly smooth as well. And the Detective Vision is almost **** worthy.

Badass. I'll be picking it up via Gamefly.
I like my water with hops, malt, hops, yeast, and hops.

Marvel got pushed back too, a long while back. I don't care so much as to update it, though.

Soooooo, after you hit 5,000 posts again, are you retiring from MacNN, or just keeping this user name going?

Forza 3 is a definite for me: I'm a "proper" car enthusiast!

I'm always disappointed that most console racing games are too "arcadey" or casual...Forza has always had substance.
