Thanks!

OKay, that does look awesome.

It does seem to borrow from other games and films (Aliens anyone?) but looks terrific. I would think it might also get old after awhile...

And hey, what's with the ability to shop while fighting? You can just "buy" a different weapon?

well its not designed for replayability, its a 12 hour long game...

as for buying other weapons they are not weapons persay

you are on a mining space station... technically what you are using are weapons used for demolition and mining etc... not actually army weapons... so what you are doing is buying heavy duty items out of "vending machines" or at least you can think of them as vending machines... makes sense when you think about it being a distant and remote mining colony, wouldn't make sense to have an actual person stationed there just to sell stuff.

Any other questions?

The game has a few pretty cool tricks...One is the action queues. You do something or walk past a point that triggers one of those jumping scares from movies. The other (which would scare the living bejeesus out of me) is audio queues. You may not see the Nercomorphs, but you'll hear music/sounds that let you know they're somewhere nearby. Much like horror movies (chick is walking around the dark, all of a sudden you get the movie's theme...and then, wham! Stabbed from behind!).

I'm trying to get it from Gamefly before Halloween, but I'll probably fail.

Unlikely, for one. Last time I went to the BB near my place, all the new and "good" games were all rented out on PS3.

And why would I spend $8 to rent a game for a week when I'm already spending $16 on Gamefly? That's more than a little stupid.

Are you going to jump on every comment I make to be snarky and sarcastic from now on? Should I wait with bated breath?

That really does look cool. I'll have to check it out when at a friend's with a PS3.

I wish there was better stuff for the Wii :-(

At least we have Raving Rabbids to keep us company. I never get tired of those games.

NO but I want to! I was suppose to hop up to Oakland to play both this weekend with my friends husband (I like scary games, he likes scary games, wife hates scary EVERYTHING) but they're both sick and as fun as staying in a hotel with no real plans sounds, I'll probably just reschedule my weekend ;_;

What? You were being sarcastic, I was being wry. It came off bitchier than intended. That seems to be happening a lot lately. I had the joy of making my friend cry tonight. *sigh*
