N0T PENNYS B0AT - I don't mind the abundance of remasters. I sold my 360 to get a One. To still get a hold of Alan Wake and Infinite would be great.

My life doesn't evolve around Xbox, or atleast I keep telling myself that :)
SoiledDoughnut - I'm seriously considering trying out Neverwinter. I'm not sure if it's a good idea though.

I'll definitely try the Sine Mora game as it's from one of my favorite developers. The genre isn't really my thing but I still have to try it.

"Run, Jump and punch your way through the 2 first levels of the game battling the mysterious Hoodlums and their minions."

Read like the xbla version contains only the first 2 levels of the original game. I'm sure it's the full game but what does this phrase "2 first levels" mean in this context?
