Not seeing too much of this pushed about the media. Not necessarily a bad thing of course. I'll be getting it in due course on the 23rd. Enjoyed the last one to a point but something else pulled me away and didn't go back to it.

Reviews going live on the 19th. Always a good sign when embargoes are before the release date. :P

Maybe it'll be another HITMAN (all caps, no subtitle) situation? Weirdly quiet surrounding launch, yet the game itself turned out pretty friggin' rad? Square seems to be kind of awkward in it's marketing and promotion of late.

Well, I could certainly go for another one of these. If the reviews come in positive and it's just Human Revolution, only prettier, I'll have no issue pre-ordering this sucker.

Same mate. A prettier human revolution would do it for me.

I really enjoyed my playthrough of HR, but weirdly I never got very far in any replays. I always got to Hong Kong (or wherever that section is, I've genuinely forgotten) and kind of ground to an abrupt halt each time, I'm not entirely sure why. I even got the DLC section on the tanker but never replayed it far enough to get there.

Hoping for more varied locations that variations on futuristic open-plan offices, no bosses (unless they're clever and you can stealth them in some way)... but generally speaking it doesn't have to change too much to get my business. Am waiting for reviews, though.

I see the minimum memory requirement is 8GB. I think I need a new PC... And the preorder I had with Zavvi for Day One Edition DVD has vanished. Seems only Square(EU) are doing physical media. Better get a Steam key before the pre-load starts (oh, and find some memory).

EDIT: bugger, not enough GPU memory either; didn't have this problem with DOOM. Will it run at all with only 1GB? Any suggests for a "value" 2GB card? Cheers.

It's out next week I think Tuesday. Looking forward to this have a few extra days off over bank holiday to get some time in on it also. Only thing I'm not so looking forward to is the jensen voice actor. Soooooooooo drool much gruff.

With Medicine Man MIA, I'll point out that the game got a 9 from Edge.
Or at least that's what a person in the position to have a fly glance before the mag hits news stands has said.

I couldn't even wait for the reviews to hit. I preordered the damn thing on Monday. I'm part of the problem. :P

Same here. Like nails on a chalkboard. Might be the reason I never finished Human Revolution. Might be why I hesitate to buy this one.

It really did give me momentary pause for thought but he hopefully doesn't have to deliver too much :)

That didn't last long, went to buy it last night and it was back up to £29.99.

Aye that reads like a well written review but I'm a bit disappointed to read that the story let's it down. I still don't understand why developers put a huge effort to make the game play in a story driven game really good but then drop the ball on the story in a story driven game.

Sounds interesting to play but it won't be a Witcher 3 beater for me most likely.
