    Mentioned it in the game thread, but Yumi's Odd Odyssey has also permanently dropped its price to $20 (from $30).

    Huh. Nintendo didn't mention it this week...

    Yeah, it's weird, they only seem to call out sales and not permanent price drops. And they call sales "price drops" in the eShop itself.

    Nintendo has no idea what it's doing.

    SteamWorld Dig has been on my radar for a while. Worth picking up on sale?

    Omigod, I'm SO excited! It's like surprise Christmas!

    If I were Christian!

    Now to investigate the differences between the different versions of Mr. Driller...

    Hmm, what's Comic Workshop? Is it a make-your-own-strip type of thing?

    Little Inferno isn't a very good summer game, but if you want a buy it now and play through it this December...

    Which is the best game of those three?

    I had so much fun playing this game during the Christmas season when it first came out. All dark and cozy with just this game and my tree all aglow.

    Cuddling up with a blanket and this game on a cold winter night was perfect.

    @anon_mastermind

    Haven't played any of them. BUT I know this:

    - Devil Survivor Overclocked is more like a tactical RPG. Grid-based movement like Fire Emblem, etc.
    - Soul Hackers is more like a traditional SMT game: move around in first person view, random encounters, turn-based combat.

    @Zero

    Yea, those games have been on sale for a couple of weeks now and unfortunately, if you did not bite, its too late, they are no longer on sale. Though, I'm sure given enough time, they'll be on sale again in the future.

    Now, Yumi's Odd Odyssey is on sale for $19.99, actually I believe that is the new price from here on out. It used to be $29.99. Has anyone played this game, is it any good and most importantly, is it fun?

    Get Code of Princess so we can play together online!

    @gamewizard65

    I think that @Guillaume is qualified to answer that. He's played it and talked about it on RFN, I believe.

    Picked up SteamWorld Dig because I was curious about it before, and $4.49 was too good a deal to pass up. I'm about an hour in, and I like it so far. It's very Metroid-esque, and the art style is nice.

    I enjoy it, but it's really hard to control. You have to have a certain tolerance for deaths that you'll feel are unfair.

    Hm, interesting. Is this a dungeon-crawler or something else?

    Maybe this series is something worth paying more attention to...

    @Mop it up

    Sadly, that's all I know. Also: it is a game originally released on the Saturn, so it's a little bit more dated than more recent SMT releases. And even SMT 4, the latest title in the series, had its share of weird design issues and some player-unfriendliness.
