    You sure you will get to see reviews? Will the 4 pack deal remain after it is released?

    I haven't really paid attention, only 4 pack I ever did was Borderlands, but I don't remember if it remained. The bonus content that comes with pre-ordering this looks good, although I assume that extra mode stuff will be some cheap DLC you can buy, otherwise it would suck to own since no one new would ever get it and the modes would die out.

    The -prepurchase "DLC" provides an "arena mode" in which you can gather items and such for use in the actual game. Don't forget the game is listed as an RPG, so there should be plenty of reasons for gameplay outside the main story line that will work great for DLC. Think L4D, but with all the maps connected together and available all at once, like Just Cause with zombies. Should turn out good for short or long play sessions. I'm hoping it'll replace minecraft for at least a while as my go-to game when bored.

    4 players. It's kind of like LFD but waaaay better... In coop you can from what I hear... earn XP, complete quests, and it's sandbox (nonlinear)

    Man I was going to make one of these threads but for some reason though I couldn't...

    I went ahead and bought mine full price.

    Game looks great, just hope they don't hold out to much on the PC.

    Now, here is the thing.. will it allow you the "pre-order" status that Steam gives you?

    Wiki says release date is Sep 6?

    Also Even though Steam says Sep 5th the count down ends on Sep 6th.

    Kind of disappointed now that I realized this. I was looking forward to playing the game on labor day, no school or work. Lame its the 6th and not the 5th like I originally thought.

    Any chances we get it early :p.


    EDIT:
    Also does steam know what timezone you are in and give you the right time or does it give a release date based on one timezone and leave it up to you to figure out what the actual time will be for you?

    Review for the PS3 is out: http://au.ps3.ign.com/articles/119/1192319p1.html

    Looks like the console versions will run into some performance problems and if they weren't present I am assuming IGN would have given them the good ol 8.5 rating lol
