    Didn't see a thread on this. I remember seeing a thread where Twist posted a video, but I couldn't find it. Have you guys played this? It's funny that all these high-profiled games have come out these last few months and this is the most addicting to me. Simple but beautiful. I wish coop was online, but otherwise, it's bliss. I hope they release a PSP version since the game supports full remote play.

    I briefly played this on my friend's PS3 but didn't really understand it. It looked interesting though.

    Well the interesting element is how the elements react to each other. Can't get through a lava? Find a way to get water on it to cool it and then shoot through the newly-created crust. The physics are cool to mess around with. I fumbled on one of the level and wasted my water pod (a little pod that explodes into water when dropped) so I spent a few minutes splashing the water with my lasers to get it to flow onto the lava below.

    Yeah, I just heard that on a podcast this morning, that they have some DLC plans. But then again, I paid 10 bucks for it, and I've paid that for shorter games.

    WTF?!

    I haven't played it beyond getting it on its first day, and to hear we didn't get a full game is disappointing. What did they leave out?

    Don't worry, you're not going to be playing for 30 minutes. It has decent length. You'll still get your money's worth.

    Basically what you have is the tutorial.

    Think I'll wait and see if they put out the game with the DLC as one pack before getting this then :(

    There'll be an expansion, but the core game as it stands never really ramps up. It's like "here's this sections new thing..." and never really capitalises on it as a gameplay mechanic in an interesting, or challenging, way.

    I'd be interested in seeing what they do with further episodes. I found the main gameplay to be entertaining, especially messing around with water and manipulating it over Lava. I just made it to the ice level.

    Loving this game so far. Messing around with the lava is a blast.

    I hate when I shoot a hole through a pit of lava only to realize that it was right over a covered alcove and my men are in there. Poor little guys.

    Do you think it's worth it just now or better to wait?

    Just a heads up, High Frequency Bandwidth released their album which includes the songs in this game, so if you liked the music as much as I did, pick it up. :)

    *Edit* Bah, they all have extra vocals on top. I was hoping for straight games versions. :(
