It really surprises me that it's not higher in Steam's sales list. I wonder if a large number of Steam customers now just buy through GMG and thus aren't counted in the list.


I'd blame it on how little information there has been about the game, compared to other games coming out on the same day (XCOM), and a crowded market with BL2, TL2, and the WoW expansion.

Anything's possible, but I wouldn't say there's been "little information." Their marketing campaign has been pretty all-encompassing, and they've had quite a lot of previews on most of the major sites.

I guess there really aren't that many fans of the Thief-type gameplay...


Oh right, there's a game to discuss too.

This is effectively the first I've heard of this game. Past references have passed me by, largely because I've managed to start avoiding pre-release stuff to avoid spoilers and getting my hopes up. I thought it was like The Saboteur, which I didn't think much of, so this may be a nice surprise.
