    This quite literally brought tears to my eyes. I have loved this franchise so long, and have immersed myself in all the lore. This is like a renaissance to me.

    You know that time when you see the concept art, and you think, "Wow, if only it looked like that in the game"? This is DEFINITELY not one of those times. I was surprised at the amount of detail they kept on things like the shadows and monsters. This game better win game of the year.
