    "Evil Link Does Demons in Hell" sounds like some f*cked up fanfic anime porn imho. Made me chuckle a little.

    Nevertheless, this piqued my interest when I saw it at Steam, I'll give it a shot once the price comes down a little. So thanks for the review.

    Edit//:So this is available for consoles as well? I'll see if I can get it for my PS3 then.

    Edit2//:16,99€ for PS3 from play.com delivered. Nice.

    I just might have to give this ago.

    Oh and Windwaker is so much better than Ocarina of Time!

    ...I may actually grab this soon. Huh. Looks pretty cool.

    I assume a 360 pad works natively, or at least is easy to configure?

    Works natively. It's an outstanding game.

    Brilliant game, enjoyed it on the 360 earlier on the year.

    I quite liked the Voice acting (Mark Hamil reprising his Joker voice for the Watcher, and Liam O'Brien who voices Gaara in Naruto / Captain Ukitake in Bleach in his typical monotone voicing War).

    Looks like a kickass game, I'll put it on my list of games to buy / play when I actually have time. I'm still playing through Torchlight for the first time ffs, WoW and my other current mania - hand sewing new thermal lining into all the curtains in the house - are taking up too much of my time right now to finish it ;)

    Sleeper hit to me. I never considered even getting this till I saw reviews for it. Now its a must buy.

    Get the PC version slowmotionsucide. I just read this comment from a thread over at hardforums.

    Actually, the 360 version sucks. PS3 version was the best one before PC came out.

    Oops, sorry!
    An error was encountered while processing your request:

    This item is currently unavailable in your region.

    I don't mind that much that they do this, but at least let us get to the store page for the bloody game!

    EDIT: Aw, ninja'd.

    Apparently it's a Steamworks game, so you can add the physical box to Steam.

    Although i can't confirm that, it's just been thrown around on the internet when i was searching for it.

    I'm confused is this out or not yet? I'm pretty sure I've seen it in Game on the weekend.
    Although most sources claim it to be out on the 8th.

    And Amazon says its in stock ready for dispatch when ordered.

    I've got it on PS3 and PC. I wouldn't say the PS3 version plays poorly at all, it's just the typical diff you get between 720p console games and super-high res many people run their PC games at. The textures look to be the exact same res on PS3 and PC as well, so I was a little disappointed there. You get the odd slowdown on the PS3 and that's about it.

    Yep can add cd key to steam (says so in the retail cd-keys support bit) :) so I'm getting it, odd how you can't buy it through steam though eh.
