Playing through Episode 3 today. Absolutely outstanding game, one of the best adventures in recent years. I haven't felt so swept away by a game since Alan Wake and The Wolf Among Us.
If you like story-based games and/or that weird, attractive "Twin Peaks-like" vibe, picking this up is a no-brainer.
