Looks to be a decent game.

Not necessarily a great game, but a decent one nonetheless. So I plan on buying it.

Of course, I'll wait. I have a feeling this'll be a $20 bargain bin game in a month or two after release--just like Nier.

It definitely looks like its going to be a sleeper hit. It may rise above your expectations, I don't guarantee that but the pedigree working on this game "should" shine through in El Shaddai.

Sadly, I wish the $20 bargain analogy did not become true and this game lives off the cult following it deserves.

I somewhat doubt that. I think the Nier analogy was a pretty good one--it's a brilliant game, but a few glaring flaws keep it from being "great."

El Shaddai evokes that same feel to me.

Of course, it could end up being just absolutely awful. Time will tell.
