EDIT:  GB wiki release date is faulty.. its May 10th. 

 
After a quick peek at the games released this month, i saw The First Templar (for the PC and Xbox 360) is released March 30..  
It looks interesting, and im a sucker for Crusade-themed games (which is why i think Assassin's Creed 1 is a masterpiece)  







  
 

So is anyone buying this game? are we expecting any coverage? im pretty interested

Mount and Blade has all the 3rd person medieval swashbuckling I could want. Also the crusades didn't involve trolls in dungeons. That screen sorta makes me think of God of War.

That's what the Pope wants you to believe.

Everything I know is a lie! We need Ezio in here, now!  
 
And supposedly this game is made in Bulgaria, is that east Bloc enough for Dave to do a quicklook?

Where the hell is Bulagaria? Is that near Latveria or Ruritania?

Didn't seem like anything special from that video, might pick it up when it becomes super cheap though, I've always been a bit interested in that time period.

This is the first I've ever heard of it. Looks interesting.
I'll have to do some more investigation.

@Ahmad_Metallic: Where did Giant Bomb's March 30 release date come from?
 
Gamspot and IGN have listed as an April 26, 2011 release, while Kalypso's site and Wikipedia have May 2011.
 
(Edit: I'm changing the date here as everything else says May 10, 2011. From two days to two months just like that.)

"  http://www.gametrailers.com/video/gdc-11-the-first/711260 Here's a video of the gameplay. Visually, it's a complete mess. Don't know about the gameplay.   "
woah.. alot less interested now :( i appreciate Dragon Age: Origins but i kinda cant stand it, and this game is totally copying everything about Origins (not executing it nearly as well though) 
i thought it would be more actiony and less RPG-ish . dang
