Man this game is lookin sharp

Here is the stage demo from gamespot if you haven't seen it 
 Man, thanks to the podcast and the gamespot demo I just realized how incredible this game looks. It looks like a hybrid between Hitman, Assassins Creed and Bioshock, not a bad combo. It seems like they just throw you into a wide area and say "hey, go find this dude and kill em," and leaves everything up to you.  It seems like you have so many different options on how to take out your target and even full on combat seems to be really well done. On top of this, the guy mentions that the placement of these targets is randomized, meaning everytime you play you may have to devise new strategy on how to proceed. Also the visual style looks great and story seems interesting. I also like the "black death" sub-plot going on (I don't think it's actually that but they play it has a horrifying disease). 
 
This game has moved on my radar and I encourage you guys to check it out also!

I'm really looking forward to this game. I was afraid they wouldn't allow a non lethal playthrough.

Yeah, after that demo it moved right past Far Cry 3, The Last of Us, NFS: Most Wanted and Beyond as my most expected game from the show, it looks amazing.

Damn, I didn't really like the first trailer I saw but I'm glad you posted this. It looks so awesome. A mix between maybe Assassin's Creed, BioShock, and Hitman. Pretty sweet.

Mucho thanks for posting that link. Seeing the mini interview Patrick did spiked my curiosity a bit. I really like the ability to tinker with how to do a level. Seeing the Gamespot video was very cool as well. I doubt I'll be one of the people who play through without any bloodshed, but still very cool to know it's possible.

Yeah it really made the pain of losing Prey 2 sting a little less to have this game coming out.

I don't know if you read my post but this is my second sentence.

Heh, I skimmed through it but didn't catch that sentence.

You're right, I saw a video of it on IGN earlier and this is now my most anticipated game of the year, a title which, as always, is subject to change but there isn't much else that I see it changing to.

Really glad to see this game will have leaning in it. It was crucial to stealthing in Dark Messiah and looks like it is here, too.
