Is Mario & Luigi out in NA yet? I saw it in a shop here in Switzerland today and was tempted to buy it until I remembered that A. 3DS is region-locked B. everything is uber expensive here and C. I wouldn't have much time to play it and rub it in everyone's faces before it comes out in NA anyway.
@Mr_Mustache We were supposed to get one of the Spin the Bottle guys on the podcast but I think they have been busy getting it ready for release, maybe sometime soon?
As far as I can tell it is a TV-free, GamePad used only to tell you what to do game where you are in teams and stuff and have to do erm... odd / weird things with the Wii remote? They described it as somehow family-friendly and risque at the same time, depending on the crowd. No kissing or anything though.
I'd have to admit I think Ducktales should probably only be 10, but I think Disney stuff tends to be more on the expensive side in general. If the game is only a few hours long...I don't know if I could plunk $15 on it.
Yeah, supporting WayForward and Virt is a worthy endeavor, IMO. The "premium" doesn't seem that bad to me - but the value of an "extra" $5 can vary from person to person.
We also have to remember that there is all-new content in the game, too. New areas to explore and treasure to find, stuff like that. It's not just a better-looking and better-sounding version of the NES classic.
No one caved and bought SteamWorld Dig? That trailer really looks awesome but talk about launching at a bad time. There's way too much to play right now but I'm really curious about it so I hope I can get to it soon.
