    All I can say is that I was really, really impressed by it.

    I can understand how it may look graphically inferior to most games out there now, but frankly in the grand scope of things, that doesn't matter. The demo was pretty funny, the controls worked real well, blending a mix of hack and slash with zelda, and what they showed in the game so far was artistically awesome. Even the driving section I enjoyed, which I didn't think I would.

    I really, really hope you all pre-order it. It looks awesome and plays awesome in it's own awesome way.

    I didn't know this demo was up, and I will be downloading it either tonight or tomorrow.

    I can't wait for this game. A huge incentive for buying a PS3 for me.

    It's only available for those who pre-ordered it. So if you want it early, pre-order it.

    Isn't the purpose of a demo to encourage more pre-orders and sales? I think making people pay to put down a pre-order just to play the demo should only be done by established IPs.

    I wholeheartedly agree with this. It's just a lame cash grab by companies like Gamestop/EB, Best Buy and the like...And of course the publisher of the game.

    You do realize the game demo will be out this week right? The week early was the reward for pre-ordering it.

    So if you didn't pre-order it, download the demo this week. And enjoy.

    I dislike Jack Black's comedy, but I still would try this game out.

    You do realize that while this is true it doesn't mean it still isn't a cash grab technique right?

    Some call it "reward" others call it cash grab. I'll stick with cash grab.

    oh, nice. So that makes the demo "bonus" even more pointless.

    I have been hiding my eyes to all of the info on this game for a while now. I haven't seen any videos, cutscenes, secrets, or even trailers. I've been pretty good about it. I finally downloaded the demo and played it twice. I must say it's the funniest game I've played in years. The demo propelled it to a must buy for me.

    I'm the same. I've heard nothing about it. But now that you've said that, used. I'm going to have to try the demo.

    I realize it's for Xbox as well, but I didn't make the transition to current-gen until this month, because I was waiting until it was actually worth it. This game will help that cause.

    In the other copycat topic that Lethean went power-mad and closed, someone mentioned a nod to Psychonauts in the opening video. What was it?
