I'm glad, gives the game a far greater chance than if launched at the height of the Christmas season.

I'm glad on one hand, but on the other I really wanted it as soon as possible. Smilie Oh well, means I get to play the other stuff out around now and give them the time of day without worrying about another game!

Thats ass.

My first though was oh noes, but after giving it a few seconds this is not such a bad thing at all really, not for the title to do well anyway. I am going to get this game for sure regardless to when it comes out.

Good move honestly. I'm not too bummed. Will help me save up more. Kind of a relief actually.

Damn, I wanted to play it bad. But I have a lot of games to buy in November alone, so I have to play some anyway!

But with doing so poorly (I heard), it's great that it's being advertised. But it's made a bit too childish, which it isn't at all. So they have a hard time convincing core gamers or people considering themselves as not too childish and taking games by its covers instead of its content.

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

Just added the full press release now, since the embargo has lifted (yes, Wiiz broke it by a few days :sarcySmilie.

Anyway, hopefully this will get a good advertising push in the UK, unlike Phoenix Wright, which always just slinks onto the market Smilie

Yeah it does seem like a game made for kids untill you play it. Then as you pass each level the difficulty slowly jumps from ring the bell and grab the snake to use your mind like you were in that movie "Cast Away". To tell the truth I can't think of any games that can compare to it which is a good thing. Seeing as there are so many titles comming out this month you UKers shouldn't be to dissapointed.

I am bumping this thread up for the added promotion of the fact this fine game will be out next week across Europe. Soz if you thought the game was delayed again but it was the best way to get peoples attention Smilie.

It was such a shame it did not come out in time for Christmas, I was left playing nothing on my Wii having not bought GH3 and Links CBT. (still have not found a copy of that)

I just really hope it does well in Europe in contrast to what happened in Japan and the U.S. Games of this quality deserve to do well on any platform. It's imperative that third party titles of this calibre do well on Wii for future such games on the platform.

There is a whole load of footage out there if your stupid enough to watch it. I think with a game of this type you really need to stay well away from all spoilers. When a official Thread is created I hope people respect that when discussing the game.

Cannot wait till next week!, I hope I get sent my copy early as per usual Smilie

Are you getting Zack and Wiki?

Yes, I think I will be getting it. I'm going to take the risk and try something new. Personally I'm worried by the whole "point and click" genre, it sounds like some boring PC game.

But from what I've heard, it's not, so I'm hoping it's not just me that usually finds those games boring, 'cos if it is, and this is the same, then I won't enjoy it. Smilie

Yeah I'm going to get this. I like games that make you think and it's good to have some games where the pace is a little slower if you want it to be. It's got great reviews too, I've not really read many as I didn't want to spoil the puzzles, but have been keeping up with the scores and summaries.

I also love games that drive you a little crazy with how ingenious puzzles are. I do genuinely like being vexed that I cannot work something out initially because it forces you to be creative. I have always loved the classic point and clicks in the past, games like Monkey Island were the stuff I was raised on and I have fond memories of the fun they gave. I think it's great to see the genre return with this new twist that provides so many more possibilities. I think this will have many brain racking moments and many talking points in abundance. It will also be topped off with what looks to be to be some great quirky humour brought to life with fantastic animation. Those praying bunnies in the temple level crack me up, I like how they only stop chanting to their god when waiting for grub Smilie. (seen in clips)

I think this game will make you bang your head on the wall with a smile, I cannot wait Smilie.
