I hope it's good w/ solid co-op, a nice fun jaunt.


I hope Akanbe will get it so I can loot while zombies munch on his brains

Not much to munch on.

So... is everyone getting this for console or for PC? I'm a bit torn between getting it for PC or for the PS3....

It seems like the experience is going to be centered around you shooting the shit with friends while killing things. Why must you have an xbox!?

Here's the first review I've seen. From Team XBox. VERY positive review.

Damn guys... I hope you guys allow links on here? Never thought of it. If so, you can delete them all.

In the video review in one of those review links it says the game has a few graphical glitches, whihc are worse on the PS3. So if you had to choose PC or PS3, I'd go with the PC version.

I'm getting the PS3 version, so I'm hoping its not too bad. As for the game itself, hopefully it doesn't get horribly repetitive and boring after a while. Had a great time with Borderlands, so if its anything like it I'll probably enjoy it.

Our review will be up by the end of the day, hopefully.

There is some pretty significant texture pop-in and some bad clipping.

I can live with that, might hurt the mood a little but its hardly game breaking.

I was all set to buy it today but the various things I've read about the graphics scare me a bit. Don't get me wrong, I can live with some issues but not for $60 I don't think. So real question becomes how long before it gets to say $40 and can I wait that long...

Sounds like a thing that will be awesome to get in a Steam sale, Not necessarily just to save the money, but to have it stew a few months longer and get several patches applied.
