This deserves its own thread. It made a bit of an impact at last year's E3 but the viral campaign is pretty impressive.

Wikipedia page. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remember_Me_%28video_game%29)

The game is set in the year 2084, in a futuristic version of Paris called Neo-Paris. In the story, Mega-corporation MEMORIZE has invented a new brain implant called the Sensation Engine (Sensen), which enables roughly 99% of the population to upload and share their actual memories on the net.[/URL] This gives MEMORIZE an immense degree of control over the population and enables them to establish a surveillance state. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remember_Me_%28video_game%29#cite_note-MemoryTrailer-4) This, in turn, leads to a small group of rebels forming under the name "Errorists": their mission is to bring down MEMORIZE. The invention of the Sensen has also resulted in the creation of Leapers: formally memory-addicted humans, they have absorbed so many memories through the net that their Sensen has degraded and they have mutated into a subhuman form, now living in the sewers of Neo-Paris.

When the game starts, Nilin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remember_Me_%28video_game%29#cite_note-MemoryTrailer-4), a memory hunter employed by MEMORIZE who specialized in stealing or altering memories, has her own memory wiped by her employers. Now on the run, Nilin allies with the Errorists and, with help from the rebel leader Edge, sets out to recover her lost memories and bring down MEMORIZE.

I've kept up with this enough in interest but I'm still unsure if it's worth a purchase at launch. Shall wait and see.

not holding my breath.. but also kinda curious about this one. Will at least read a few reviews as, unlike Fuse, this really could be a nice sleeper hit. It certainly looks interesting and the art style looks lovely

I want it but don't wish to drop $59.99 on it at the moment. Gameplay looks pretty cool to me, even though most critics are dashing it rather stereotypically.

Apparently the gameplay is super clunky and you can kind of see it in footage - I really like the premise, though, and it's always nice to see a female protagonist these days. I'm hoping I'll get lucky again with the price drops at work and pick this up at a slashed price; as much as I've been wanting to play it, I'd rather not blow €54 only for it to turn out to be underwhelming.

Looks a little clunky, but bearable. I'm going to hold out for a little bit. But, i'll get it eventually.
