    Hasn’t had much marketing… usually not a great sign.

    Hoping this’ll be great fun though.

    Extremely small company. Its not going to have the money for marketing. There are plenty of gameplay footage over the last few months and for 20$, it is pretty solid.

    @2, I’m not talking CoD sized marketing, I just mean I haven’t heard alot regarding this game for a while now. I should think it’ll be good seeing as though it’s Jeff Strain and I love Guild Wars 1, but still don’t know enough about this game to have high hopes for it.

    Microsoft Game Studios does in fact publish it but they are only going to give money for development. Its up to the studio if they want to use the money for development on marketing.

    Very much like EA partners does marketing only this is for an Indie studio so even less money is involved.

    Check out part1 of 3 IGN play videos and judge by yourself, but I think it’s totally awesome for an XBLA game and worth the steep 1600points. Seeing that my 360 must last a couple of years more, I’m in.

    I really wonder why MS hasn’t done any marketing on this. It’s a pretty beefy game purchase and at that price you have a lot to lose if you can’t make your self apparent to an audience. This isn’t Minecraft XBLA, and can get away with such a price tag because of the name, studio and marketing done.

    It’s an interesting title but I would of liked to hear more. As one who follows gaming news I haven’t heard about this game for awhile.

    It looks rather clunky, the animations and the combat and 1600pts is still quite some points. It depends on how long and how good the game is of course, otherwise it could be worth those 1600pts easily. Will definitely give the trial a good spin.
