@GameDadGrant I got it digital, so I know at one point it was there near launch.
For anyone interested, The Swapper is a really great game. Got it on Steam and it's a lot of fun. It's a puzzle game, looks sort of like Metroid, but it's got a real interesting twist on everything that comes together at the end (or doesn't depending on how you see it).
Yeah, it's kind of different for being different's sake.
I'd keep the volume on low (or off) while you play, but otherwise it's a fun spin-off of Super Mario Bros. 2. Whether or not that would be worth your $8 is up to you. Sorry if that's not much help, but as mentioned above, it really is a YMMV type of game.
Then I made the mistake of trying the 3DS demo for Sonic Boom, which almost turned the day back to normal again. Holy crap that game seems slow and clunky, and that first level just drags on and on. Gonna have to wash that down with some more Shovel Knight or Stealth Inc 2.
