    Of course you should, dude! Especially if you're getting it from a place that'll have a pre-order character.

    What system you thinking of getting it for?

    I'm going to be pre-ordering it for the PC too, but I want Activision to lock down a definite release date first.

    You're probably much better off with a PC version than the Wii.

    And Demolishor is the fucking boss. Just look at him.

    I'd wait to see how it performs and how its received. It might be hard to ignore the hype-wagon right now though.

    Ah crudders, My PC isn't going to be powerful enough for the game, It's graphics card and hard drive are to outdated...Oh well I'll just try the Wii version and if I like it I'll buy it, Thats a bummer though.

    i've got a terrible GeForce7800GT and it's played Batman, Dragon Age Origins, L4D2 at perfectly respectable FPS/res - as long as you're prepared to turn off some of the eyecandy i reckon you should be alright...

    although it does need a reboot and a cooldown after a 10 hour marathon gaming session ;)

    $39.99?! Amazon.com? Seriously? Link, please. The one I've seen is nearly double that.

    If you're still on the fence, I'd say you should hold off until you find something in the game that makes the deciding part easy, but until then: DO NOT BUY. Regrets suck. Big time!

    Ah, the PC version of the game. ...sure wish the PS3 version was that cheap, I'd buy another game to go along with this one, too.

    Where are people getting the idea that the PC version won't have DLC exclusives? The link you sent me shows Demolisher in the pics down below.

    Yes, but the page for the PC version doesn't say,

    Pre-order Bonus: Unlock an Exclusive Character--Demolisher

    Only the XBOX360 and PS3 order pages have that caption.

    So yes, the PC crowd is **** out of luck in terms of getting any exclusive goodies. Yes, we don't have to pay as much as the XBOX and PS3 guys, but it still kind of sucks. Which, as I've said before, I'm hoping and praying Activision and High Moon release these characters in a DLC pack post-release.

    And on the subject of pre-ordering, now that Activision has set June 22nd as the official release date for the game I will now be pre-ordering it.

    Ouch. Sorry bout that. You may want to look into getting a PS3 or XBOX 360 if the game turns out to be good. I dread to think what other 'changes' Nintendo might have made to their version.

    You guys need to hit Amazon.com up on false advertising, as the pics in the PC side of things shows Demolisher as a playable character ;)
