    In AUS we have to wait until the 19th (18th in the states), so reviews will be out beforehand and will influence my decision - but god, I'm kinda tempted to buy it just for the XV demo.

  • selfconfessedcynic posted a message in the forum topic So are you getting DmC Definitive Edition?. on the DmC Devil May Cry board

    I really liked DmC and the re-imagined universe. Heck, I'd rather a follow up to DmC than see DMC5, though Ninja Theory has pretty much put up a billboard saying this won't happen :(That said, I boug...

    Hi5 to all of you guys, I'm a massive Sanderson fan, though to be honest I haven't bought into the whole cosmere thing. IMO he has to prove it's compelling to me via the continuation of the Stormlight...
