Loco Roco 2 coming

Oh yeah.... I'm getting psyched for it now.... after watching it come out in Japan & Europe and having *NO* North American release date at all for awhile... Loco Roco 2 is (finally) almost here... The N.A. release date is set for Feb 10, 2009.

The release price is also pretty great: $19.99 U.S. Unfortunately, Future Shop has it listed for $24.99 Canadian... which is to be expected given our dollar has sunk so low in value in the last 2 months... it's still a price that will probably have me buying it on day 1....

I think I've pretty much run dry the entertainment value of Secret Agent Clank... the final boss battle is all about fighting and being able to take tons of hits. The problem is, the *entire Clank campaign* is about AVOIDING fighting & using stealth. He's not as tough as Ratchet, and his weapons aren't as strong. Yet they throw in a final boss battle that basically looks like it was meant to be played with Ratchet since Clank is so ill-equipped to do this stuff properly. It's really frustrating how the devs got so lazy at the end here. Basically they took an outtake of a Ratchet level, maybe from Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters, and dropped it into Secret Agent Clank. I never get why devs don't want people to finish the final levels of their games. Even if I do manage to finish it, I know it won't be particularly satisfying for all the effort.

So I could use a new PSP game... Loco Roco 2 should hit the spot nicely I hope.

About 2 weeks left.

Reading your comments about the final SAC fight, I fear you won't like the last 3 stages of Locoroco 2 once you unlock them, especially Fort Buibui3...

Really? Interesting.... we'll see, I guess. I do suspect the difficulty level of LocoRoco 2 would be higher than the original LocoRoco, because the devs probably assume we've already played through the first one....
