Heh, my manager has been talking about that game for a couple weeks now pretty much just because Gearbox developed it. I just don't see it, looks like early reviews are on my side.

Yeah I'm glad I didn't pay full price but I purchased it awhile ago, I figured gearbox wouldn't **** all over one of my favorite franchises.

WRONG.

I'm wondering if DmC will burn me out on hack n slash games and I won't want to play Metal Gear Rising.

What do you guys think? I wasn't going to buy DmC but I heard some good (outrageous) stuff that happens and I think I'd like to expierence it first hand.

But I'm really pumped for Rising.

Wonder what Valve's business manager leaving means. In addition to the 25+ people fired at Valve HQ. Maybe they decided to change the direction the company is going in and people are leaving or being fired because of it?

Maybe I should have made a new thread for it, but I doubt anything happens to steam. It's just a curious situation.

It will probably take a miracle for someone to spill whats happening behind the scenes at valve, unless you trust PR people.
