Has the game been fixed since then? Can anyone answer their concerns?

i think Ron explains why the camera is the way it is in the GB quicklook well. And i think it was the right choice

Really looking forward to play this epic adventure, DF games always have something special about them I just love.
Will it have some kind of co-op, like Trine 2 had?

Also, check out my post in Buy/Sell, where I have The Cave (Steam) for sale cheaper than GMG :)

Edit: Nevermind, just read in that IGN article that you actually can play co-op, awesome!

Haha, yeah. I got those last month. The paint on a few of them is a bit messed up and I can't get two of them to stand up at all, but other than that they're fine.

They gave them out at Eurogamer Expo when you completed the demo. I managed to get the Scientist, the Adventurer and the Knight. Wanted the Hillbilly, but sadly you could only get one toy a day and it was "blind box" stuff.

Shame there was no way to get them other than conventions.

This game just popped on my radar, and I just pooped myself.

Definitely gathering with the guys on the weekend for some local co-op

GB Quick Look sold me on this game, though I think critics will have a field day complaining about the camera and platforming, it's obvious that they consciously chose to have it that way.

The eShop usually updates around 12 eastern -- and since I'll be up, I'll let you guys know if that version is available tonight.

As for the QL, I love GB, but I don't want to get spoiled and I intended on using the knight in my first playthrough, so thanks for warning me to hold off until I get past the beginning areas.

AM or PM considering it does both depending on the release?

On the plus side it looks like a cool puzzle platforming Double Fine game.

On the negative, I thought Ron Gilbert's last game The Baconing was not very funny and pretty lame. In fact, I'm not sure I really find Ron Gilbert writing all that funny period.

Oh well, I preordered. Here is hoping The Baconing was just a fluke.

The game looks fun solo, but local multiplayer antics always make games more fun, IMO.

I'm not sure that he worked on The Baconing, only the first 2 DeathSpank games.

360 version for me(the demo at least). My Wii U needs games but I'll never buy digitally from Nintendo until they provide a real account system.

This is irrelevant. Just because they consciously chose to do something doesn't make it good, or fine. If it's shit, it's shit.

Obviously I've not played it, and I have no idea what the problem with the camera is even meant to be, but a problem is a problem if it exists, whether they designed it to be that way or not.

I don't think he actually worked on The Baconing.

Well that is what I meant. Actually I only played the first Death Spank (I thought there were only 2?). It wasn't very funny.

anyone know which TF2 items you get for this? might be worth buying it from Steam directly and selling the genuine items rather than GMG + coupon

I'm keeping an eye out for this one, but my renewed interest in Fire Emblem may hold me back from getting it in the near future. I like the gameplay concept of choosing a certain amount of characters per playthrough.

Why would you buy a console instead of a handheld or tablet if you didn't want to use a TV?
