As the Piranha Bytes phoenix once more rises from the ashes, a warm fuzzy feeling tingles through my bones, i sense gaming ecstatica on the horizon.

Why wait for the console version when you can get mods for the PC version.

Another game system with a different developer at a later date does not mean what you specify. It could be reverse or even the same.

The Euro XBox360 versions are also gold.

The PC versions (UK and US unconfirmed) will include a soundtrack CD.

Can I ask where you live because I have been checking in my gamestop for the past month once or twice a week to preorder my copy, but they say it's not in their system, so I'm hoping it will be there on release day.

Last I heard, Australia was going to ban this game (for drug references). Are they still?
