      I guess that's mostly because of how big the indie market on PC is. Also, pre-ordered on Steam, cant wait!

      Yeah, I find it kinda annoying that we don't get Gish for example, although I suppose Goo Balls and Headcrabs are cuter and generally more awesome.
      And then we get Captain Video who isn't even from a 360 title let alone PC (Not originally anyways, I do suppose he's on PC now) as well as Jill.
      And none of the versions are getting Quote (which would've been a whole lot better than Alien Hominid). That makes me so angry.

      Not that any of this should stop someone from buying the game, mind you.
