My initial thoughts exactly, but no fear. If your game is half as good as GoW it's still awesome.

But on PC! I love these kinds of games, I'm just not a console gamer at all. Annoyed me when Dante's Inferno didn't come out for PC.

Looks amazing, great to see progress. :)

It's great to finally see a game that is made in Iran. I am born in Sweden, but my parents were born and raised in Iran, (I speak Farsi too) I don't want to sounds like a huge patriot or anything but I am proud of this game.

Go Persia! :P
