games wishlist

There are a lot of (mostly Wii) games coming out this week that really interest me:

Deadly Creatures (Wii) --got it June 2009
House of the Dead: Overkill (Wii) --got it May 20 2010 ($14.99)
Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers (Wii)

LocoRoco 2 (PSP) --got it Feb. 10, 2009 ($24.99)


Out of that list, the only definite pick-up this week is LocoRoco 2. With the budget-price of $24.99 CAN, it's a reasonable price-point. Both Deadly Creatures & House of the Dead: Overkill are like $60.00 CAN each! That's just way too much for me to spend at once. I'll probably be waiting around for a long time for a price drop..... although Onechanbara is also budget-priced.... but I want to know more about what the gameplay is like before I rush out & pick it up....

In Ottawa, you may even find Locoroco 2 for CAN$19.99 at Loblaw's (ironmically, just next to copies of Locoroco 1 for $29.99...)

I live on the other side of the country, way aways from Ottawa.... but man, I scoured every store I could think of that might carry LocoRoco 2 hoping I'd find one for $19.99 (didn't try Costco tho...) so I caved & picked it up for $24.99.

You shouldn't regret any penny by the time you finish it :-)

BTW, how did Sony represent French and English language options for Canada on the North American version?

Awesome, I've only played a bit over an hour so far, but I'm liking it.

There were separate French & English manuals included of course, but at startup the game always asks you to select your language by picking a flag... there are a bunch of flags but they only have the U.S. flag to represent english with the French flag for french... so Canadians who speak either official language can feel equally under-represented hehe...
