EB has this listed for release this week.  Anybody plan on picking it up?  Looks interesting and throws in some neat old school side-scrolling action.  I'm still not sure how/where the RPG elements come in, but from the little I have read so far it sounds well done.  I will probably pick it up when I can find a copy.  Still, I hate paying $29 for a GBA title frown

I also saw that Rebelstar Tactical Command was priced at $19.99.  Can't wait for that one!

I've got in pre-ordered.  As far as the RPG elements, it plays like a standard action-RPG.  You traverse different planets, attacking enemies with your gun, and get pulled into random battles.  When you trigger a random battle, you enter a side-scrolling space shooter segment.  Killing enemy ships gets you experience, but I'm not sure if it's your ships or your character that you level-up with the experience.  I love RPG/other genre hybrids, and early reviews are very positive.  With this and Dungeon Siege 2, it's going to be a very fun week for me smile

i've also pre-ordered both, &, what with the now-steady barrage of negative death jr reviews (andrew, you were right!), i'm depending on them to be good enough to get me through the rest of my 'portable' summer (i was surprised by the rtc list price as well - & the fact that my pre-order was the only copy my eb was planning on getting in?)...
