Yeah, of course there will be no spoilers, the game isn’t even out yet! HAR HAR HAR!
Oh wait, one minor spoiler: There are dead things. In space.
Anyway, I’m getting all excited for this so had to start something. Especially nice is that it’s evidently passed Sony and MS certification and got moved up two weeks to 10/14 ship date. Woo! (Learned this from the protagonist’s Twitter feed…)
Also, if you haven’t checked out the festive online Ben Templesmith comic, do so. (Main site, click “COMIC” in top nav, slide over bottom nav until you find issue zero, work forwards from there.)
I think what put me over the top was the Game Informer preview that mentioned there are some decent character / weapon upgrade options in the game. Hooray for lite RPG elements in with my Carpenter-like hideous gorefest!
