Hell YES!
Episode One is going to ROCK!

EDIT:
I would actually buy it, and play it right now, but I have too much of a crappy computer.

Maybe when DX10 arrives...

EDIT2: holy crap that was fast:
"Today, 19:38 #1
WilHarris"
"Today, 19:39 #2

1 minute :P

Dammit, I didn't pre-load it, and the website to pre-order has been dead all day.

However, I do have a lot of imminent exams so this is a good thing.... or at least thats what I have to convince myself

The horror of getting a decent inernet connection in a 3rd world country... I have a few hours of Pre-loading left even though I've started last week.

Nice style Wil, keeps us that don't have it (yet) in the picture.

Interested to see how long it does last - and the screenshots make it more and more enticing.

This looks quite good - the graphics are certainly a step forward. What sort of FPS are you seeing on the 7900?
