    It's a good game. Not my favorite Zelda. I'd say it's worth playing but keep expectations low.

    When is Shovel Knight coming ouuuuuut?

    At the very earliest, after I'm done w/ Golden Sun. Metroid might get dibs, too.

    Capcom developed it and did a great job with it. Worth a playthrough. I'm getting it again.

    Ehh Minish Cap...I already have that on 3DS and played it the other year.

    Call me when Zero Mission hits.

    I feel like I should want Tomodachi Life...but at the same time I can't bring myself to actually go through with getting it.

    Hopefully some people on here get it and post some impressions

    I feel the same way. I still have NO CLUE what the heck it is.

    It's awesome and charming and crazy. It's one of those things that don't sound appealing on paper, but in practice it's great.

    Kind of like how Animal Crossing sounds so dumb when you explain it to other people, but is actually a very engrossing and addictive game.

    @ploot

    So basically your Mii (and others you create or import from the Mii Maker) go to live on an island together. The different Miis will have different personalities that you can manipulate, and you can interact with them as you watch them live out their lives. You can see the Miis meet each other, watch how they build relationships, do various activities, and stuff like that. The more Miis you have on the island, the more complicated and layered the relationships will be.

    Oh, and the game runs in real-time, like Animal Crossing. So stuff happens when you aren't playing, and if it's morning time for you, it'll be morning in the game...same if it's night, etc.

    I've had an idea to make a "Negative World" island and throw a bunch of Miis on there based off of you guys (and girls) and base their personalities off of everyone's posting style. It'd be interesting to see how the game would interpret our little community here and how the relationships would go. And whether or not I'd be able to keep a lid on all the drama, ha ha.

    Anyway, that's what I got out of the "demo" thing they sent out. It's really charming, I'm downloading it tonight.

    EDIT: Also, there is a thread dedicated to this game, so check it out if you want to learn more!

    I bought 1001 Spikes almost entirely because of the price being $10.01. Good thing it is pretty entertaining as well.

    Minish Cap is a wonderful game, one of my very favorite Zeldas.
