I can't wait.  February 20 can't get here fast enough.  It would seem that his origin story is going to be modified or changed judging from the Aztec warrior costume.

Coming out today is Kingdom Come : Deliverance.  The game is, as Kotaku put it "(A) Medieval RPG with no magic bullshit".  It started as a Kickstarter Campaign to create an RPG based around 15th century Bohemia.  For those of you like me that had no idea where that is I googled it.  It's the western part of the modern day Czech Republic.  It will be released to Xbox and Playstation.  Here's a video explaining some aspects of the gameplay;

So why the ginormous patch?  Martin Kilma, Executive Producer at Warhorse says:
