... not cool. 2012 is the year of RIP wallet. I guess I'm way too interested in a lot of things.

I'm not sure why not many people talk about this series. The first game was great. It took me about 30 something hours to complete (if your playing minus about 5 hours because I'm slow). The combat was fantastic. Apocalyptic mode which was it's highest difficulty was / is INSANE I fought the first big dude on that difficulty threw a second play through and was getting owned I had to actually use strategy because 1 hit from this guy's special move and I'm dead. And a mere 2-3 hits from his normal attack I had to use all my moves and combos to kill this guy. That wasn't even a mini-boss either!

Add that to the fact I really like the story behind this game.

As much as I liked the first game, these pre-order bonuses are getting ridiculous. You cannot own the full game unless you pre-order it three times from three different retailers? What crap. Maybe an exclusive visual-only bonus like a costume would be acceptable, but locking users out of already-made missions, treasures, bonuses, weapons, armor, and maybe even a boss fight? Absolutely absurd. I wanted to pick this game up right away. Now I don't think I will. Maybe when a FULL version comes out a year from now. For $20.

Wow that Gamestop pre order bonus is disgusting not sure how they can get away with crap like that. Saying that I loved the first game and will definitely be getting this. I'm not really sure either why the first wasn't more popular as anyone I know who played it absolutely loved it.

Pretty much this.

This is why I don't pre-order most games (except GW2 whenever it comes)
