    I’ve had ps3 and 360 since launch and only just bought a gaming pc in the last few weeks. Bar L4D, I haven’t seen any game worth buying on the PC until this one (exlcuding those I’ve already played on the consoles). I’m looking forward to it. THough its looking more arcade like with every video I see.
