Woolly World looks like a charming gem of a game and Good Feel has done me no wrong yet! That said, I'll probably wait until Christmas for it so I can have a big holiday game. Would make a nice alternative to a sweater...
I said I would hold off on Woolly World until Christmas, but...we'll see if I have the willpower to do so. I kinda want it now, and I'll wait on Xenoblade Chronicles X for Christmas (since I haven't finished the first one yet and all). Decisions...
@TriforceBun My Christmas game is Tadpole Treble! Amiright!?
But seriously after Wooly World I'm cutting myself off, I've barely touched Mario Maker, and I want to play more Splatoon, and my PS4 backlog is getting massive because I keep buying games but ignoring them in favor of Dark Souls 2 (I've put like 300 hours into that game I don't even want to think about it... ).
@TriforceBun @ludist210 I'm just happy you guys will give it a chance! It was a good game when it came out over here, and it'll be a good game this Christmas.
I'd taken a break from Woolly World for a while, but revisited it a couple of days ago to start working towards getting all the collectibles, and I had an absolute blast trying to beat levels at full health and hunting down stray yarn balls. What the game lacks in difficulty at times it makes up for with pure fun.
I saw Yoshi twice at Best Buy demo station, god it looked good. Kinda wish I'd just waited til tomorrow but it just excited me more because it made me realize I really know very little about the game. Kept pretty close to a blackout for this game. I'm not even sure of the mechanics yet. The demo surprised me. Love that feeling.
