    Game looks awesome and I'll be picking it up on release. Anybody else have any interest in this. It's a hybrid FPS/RPG style game that looks mucho bitchin. Procedural generation of weapons for a possibility of 3,000,000 combinations. System specs aren't available yet but if you can run UT 3 than you'll be good.

    I was keeping an eye on this, Dragonage Origins, and Torchlight. I am not sure if I will get any now due to DDO being a blast.

    I'm getting it. I'll probably end up playing it more than mw2 if all the bullshit that came out saturday is true.

    Dragonage origins looks pretty sweet too.

    I'll be getting it for 360, not sure when though, enjoying Brutal Legend atm :D

    From what i can see it's a better realised Hellgate London, which was awesome despite it's failings.

    Well the single and only problem with the game is that they switched to console matchmaking using a steam setup. It's called IWnet. With no dedicated servers it reduces the game to a glorified console game with better control.

    There can't be any real competitive league with this system so they will lose the entire competitive market which is about 140k+ people($21mil). Their PC units have at least halved in numbers at this point.

    I am guessing that means you aren't going to try out DDO?

    I might get Borderlands at some point. Will XoO members please post a review after they play it for awhile.

    I got Torchlight, and it's freaking awesome. And I'm getting Dragon Age next week, and I'm trying to figure out how to fit this game in, with COD Modern Warfare 2 coming out. I really want to play borderlands.

    Borderlands = one of the best games I've ever played, and I've only just started.
    I got it on Steam because I have other friends playing it there in 4-person co-op. (you can get 4 copies for the price of 3 and give them to friends). I've heard/read a few sources that say the xbox 360 version has some texture mapping issues. Its sort of a fallout-mad max genre with a cool cel-shaded art style, similar to Crackdown.

    And the commercials are hilarious :D
