I respectfully disagree on the backstab mechanic; I'm glad it is making a return to a more traditional look and feel as from the first game. Love the ol' Bandit knife! Whilst I won't be playing at…

Thanks for the news-bit, HiddenX, I wasn't aware this had seen a Steam release, thus to the wishlist it goes. :)

Arcomage :) That was a genuinely fun distraction from all of the adventuring in MM7. Good times!
