but I'm just wondering why TTT, videl, and PS3fan all voted lame with no reason why?....oh thats right videl and PS3fan are all Sonyfanboys and TTT curiously has no other post history....not one comment, hmmm??...just a mysterious new member from Asia? lol

I downloaded the trailer last week and watched it on my 50" plasma HDTV so I have to agree that its visualy stunning and the music was a perfect match to help create the "feeling" of a desperate man/soldier in a ruined world.....the combination of the two definitely made you want to know more. Just a few more days and it will be the day before "E-Day"!

Song doesn't fit the game. Do something exciting next time, guys.
