Cool, it's a summer game! I get a bit irritated when all big games are pushed for winter because of Christmas season. Which makes sense business wise, but still...

I expect every single one of you who's ever cried and moaned for "new IPs" from "AAA development teams" with "big budgets" from "third parties" to go out and buy this game.

Three times.

I'm not 100% sold on this game, but on paper, it sounds fantastic. It looks like Square is giving n-Space the time/money/help to make it live up to its concept.

I don't think I would have released this so close to Diablo 3 coming out.  Probably do it before myself.
