Tugging on my heartstrings already man. Seriously.

This is looking like Toy Story 3 for the video game generation. Will be on the lookout for this.

Christ, touching and a little cruel, just like the lifes of many of our generation (43 here). Straight lines of draw, but how heartfull. Like it and going to buy (hope is in digital format too, since i live in Italy). Two thumbs up!
