I love fantasy settings so I am not too burned out on them. And they have changed it up a bit by creating their own universe. I think it will be a great game, though I am with most of you in anticipating Alpha Protocol more. Also I am a huge Baldur's Gate guy so if this lives up to the title of spiritual successor then I will surely love it.
