It looks fantastic, but I'm not sure if I can justify 3 bucks at the moment... >_<

It was approved only a couple of hours ago, it will probably take a few more hours before it's available everywhere.

I love everything about the game... except the controls. It's by no means unplayable I just didn't feel like it was responsive enough for all the chaos you have to weave through/shoot at
