I've been in on this beta for ages and not been able to talk about it (I am allowed to say I'm in it though). I'll try to have my thoughts on the title up early tomorrow.
Also, according to ve3d.IGN.com the release date is set as October 19th for sure now, too... thoughts to come on that notion to come as well tomorrow.
As for other games and their NDAs... still no lifting. :( So much to chat about, no right to say anything.
