"Despite the pessimistic jeers of “Gears of War” and “Dead Space“, a lot still remains to be seen in the half year or more before the game hits shelves. Hopefully the disillusioned will be enlightened by a reassuring developer interview or convincing gameplay footage (and co-op). Me, on the other hand? Me, the eternal cynic bored of gruff marines, “dark, gritty” sequels, killstreaks and yearly cash-ins? Well, I can say with confidence that I’m seriously looking forward to playing a relatable character in an awesome open setting, and with giant DIY robots to boot."
