    Caslte Crashers YAY!!! GW, no thanks, BC.... I've enjoyed Commando and 1949, so I'm stoked about this one.... But Castle Crashers... Hell yes.

    edited by Smangerbot: Wait, there is one problem with Castle Crashers. August 27th may as well be next year. Fuck August 27th. How about July 27th? How about Yesterday?

    No body going for Braid?
    Don't blame you since it doesn't look that good.

    However, this screenshot had me giggling.

    Castle Crashers looks sweet, as long as it's not like Alien Hominid
    Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 will probably be a buy as I liked the original
    Bionic Commando Rearmed is another buy.
    Not so sure about Galaga Legions. Demo probably.

    The Mother-f@#4ing FUN we'll have with this game can only be compared to the initial Halo 3 days, only watching things catch on fire and taking out monsters will be a different kind of crazy fun.

    Galaga is the insta-buy on that list, with BC being close behind.

    Like running around with your head on fire while drinking tequila.

    Mark your calendars, gentlemen. Oh, and in the meantime, I rented Lost Odyssey, so I will force my 360 into red ring, so it can be ready by the time CC comes out.

    Actually, I think it looked pretty clever.
    It has a nice style and the nods to classic games are great.

    The problem is it is coming out when all that other great stuff is, too.

    If you can stay awake through the first disc it will be worth it.
    The first disc is painfully slow.

    I refuse to pay that much money for a downloadable game. $10 (oe less) or I don't buy it. MS got carried away by pricing Braid at $15. By pricing the stuff that high they are really only hurting the developers.

    The only game I've come close to paying that much for (well I'm going to even) is Siren on PSN, mainly because I have played the demo and it is a NEXT gen game and looks like a Next Gen game, as does the new Wipeout, so in essence, it's not an arcade, rather a Next Gen game that's not going to be on a disc.

    I will still buy CC because I've been looking forward to it for a long time and i think it would be a great "veritable nexus of culture and refinement" for us here to get together and play, but damn, that is pretty pricey for a 2D arcade game, no matter how good it is.

    I'll see how much it is.
    1200 points is the max, anything above that and they can wait till it gets reduced.

    Or I breakdown and whack a whole load of points on my account and go on a spending spree.
