Default Re: Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood Announced

I love announcements like this because they prove that new IP's can still survive in the industry. I enjoyed Call of Juarez immensely but the staggered EU/US release and shaky sales figures had me worried that we would have to wait another decade for another decent western themed first person shooter.

I think STEAM did a lot to build a following with several CoJ sales events during 2008. If there is one reason to love content delivery services like STEAM it's their potential to lift Indie or more obscure titles from fading away due to lack of exposure.
