I loved Shank, I actually forget if I've picked up Shank 2 or not yet though lol. Great side scrolling fighter though; excellent animation and artwork, bit of humor and a solid story, and extremely fluid and viscerally rewarding combat.

Wasn't too easy or too tough either. Played on KB/M but I think it'd be more enjoyable on a controller.

Of course EA is, no business does anything without it benefiting them somehow.

Bought. I've heard good things about Shank and Deathspank, not so sure about the other two, but those four are probably worth it alone.

EA can suck a lemon.

Then choke on said lemon.

Haha. Good old EA attempting to cash in on a popular phrase that doesn't relate to them whatsoever. Doesn't surprise me at all though, sadly enough.
