It may be a generic third-person shooter but it looks damn good. I mean look at that Hair Texture.

Greg Freakin' Kasavin.

Now I'm looking forward to this.

Hey look it's Greg!
 
[edit] With all the sand in this game, is that why it's called "The Line"? The line... in the... sand...?

John Connor? Seriously?
 
Oh, John Conrad. Yeah that's sounds too similar.

Did I detect a Heart of Darkness-esque plot? The guy you're trying to rescue is Conrad. He seems to have helped these people survive, and maybe they've joined his cult. And he doesn't want to be rescued. So... Apocalypse Now, but in Dubai? There better be audio logs.
 
Also... tango down.

What he said about "rescuing a leader who doesn't necessarily want to be rescued" sounds a bit like Heart of Darkness/Apocalypse Now.  Could be interesting.
 
Edit:  Oh, and the general is called "Konrad", so that's a pretty obvious Joseph Conrad reference.

Great to see Greg again. I'm very excited for this game. I don't know what it is, maybe that trailer had a bigger effect on me than I thought.

Keep this between you and me but >_> <_< >_> ... that's probably because it isn't a FPS game.

Yeah, boy! I was a little put off at first with the whole "third-person-shooter" moniker that was thrown around at first, but I have to say, I think I'll be watching this one. Story sounds interesting.

Lol. You know what I mean.  Compared to your average shooter, it looks a little more unique.

Buying this game just because Greg is working on it. One of the best reviewers on Gamestop, ever!

I used to use Gamespot as my primary source of game info, mainly because of Greg and Jeff. This game is now a must buy.

this looks like it could go either way right now. the previews have gotten me pretty excited, but it could still turn out to be yet another third person shooter with cover and tacked on morality elements. that said, the presence of greg on the team is pretty inspiring. he knows what's up. so i'll be keeping a watchful eye on this one.
