    Noice. I can’t wait to buy this and never play it because I’m a massive wuss.

      oh cmon, man up and get this and Alien Isolation before I come over there and scare you in your sleep wearing a Darth Vader mask and a Hasmat suit, putting really loud headphones on you and turning them up full blast

      Play it via remote on vita. For some reason, it helps the tension when games are on a small screen (for me least)

    October 14??? But that’s one day after my B-day!!

    Why not October 13!?!?!

    Still i’m glad i’ll be able to play this on my B-day, i just hope Shinji Mikami is satisfied with the results he wanted.

    Don’t want to rush this game just for some early sales or anything.

      The game wants you to have a jolly good birthday party. It doesnt want you to split your time with birthday, it wants your full attention

    I’m glad it’s a bit earlier, October is starting to look ridiculous for me. I’ve got this pre-ordered for Xbox One, Alien Isolation also for Xbox One, Smash Bros for 3DS earlier in the month, plus Sunset Overdrive towards the end of October. Somehow I have to pick up an Xbox One either before then or with the hopeful Sunset Overdrive bundle (which might get announced at Gamescom or Comic Con), it’s going to be another crazy ride for me.

    Bayonetta 2 and The Evil Within are my big purchases for October. Can not wait!

    I can’t tell if this looks good or boring.

    I wonder if it’s any good, I’m going for Shadow of Mordor, DA: Inquisition and Lords of the Fallen though, this will have to wait, the horror genre rarely bring good games so I don’t exactly feel safe regarding its quality. lol
