GT writes: "I've had my eye on this game for quite some time now, but not for the reasons we gamers usually put stuff on our watch lists. I never played the original Sacred and to be honest, I'm not even sure it exists. I haven't been starved for an action RPG on the Xbox 360. Perhaps worst of all, though, is that if I weren't following this game's progress, I might not even be sure whether it was out, delayed or canceled. So why would I be so hotly anticipating a game that wouldn't otherwise thrill me? Two words: Blind Guardian. No, I don't mean the "What is your favorite color?" bridge guy in Monty Python and the Holy Grail; Blind Guardian is a German power metal band and one of my all-time favorites. I even got a chance to interview them and sit backstage during their show a couple of years ago. So, what does amazing German metal have to do with a hack 'n slash role-playing console game?"
