I'm been itching to play The Legend of Legacy after playing the demo. I put about 5 hours into it and I really enjoyed what it had to offer. Filmia practically sold me on the game through his dialogue alone. Anyway, I'm waiting for the physical release, too.
The demo I played a few months ago was fun, so I'll buy it eventually. The controls felt great and trying to find real world snacks and other in-game collectibles added some substantial enjoyment to the levels I explored.
@GameDadGrant Mine arrived in the mail. $15 back from Dell was too good to pass up. (Actually, if I seen the deal in time, I could've gotten $35 back... ON A $30 game. But they fixed the error. I DID get $35 off of Triforce Heroes, though. Score!)
