Personally I've been looking forward to P.B. Winterbottom for months now, so psyched to see it finally getting a release. An independent, humorous puzzle game with a brilliantly unique art style and innovative gameplay mechanics? A game that IGN compared to Portal: Still Alive and 1UP compared to Braid, two of my favourite games of all time? Colour me excited! Pretty sure that'll be a definite buy for me!
