Interesting.  I'll wait for the demo to decide, though.  I like the mix of retro and new games coming out and this one is both!  The only one left I'm waitin for is Catan.  Hurry up!

I'm just bitter waiting for Catan to hit.  I was never a NES kid so platformers and shooters aren't my thing.  If you'll excuse me, I have to go decide between firing up Cooking Mama or Harvest Moon on the DS. smile
