I want to experience this. But a I’ll wait until I can get it for $20.
I'd say thats smart. I have it via gamefly and i'm definitely glad I didn't pay full price for it. I've played it for probably 30+ hours and still can't even tell you if I like it at all or not. I don't exactly dislike it, but I kinda have to make a conscious choice to play it, it's never a given that DS is the game I'll be popping in when I sit down to play something. I'm forcing myself to at least finish it but then I'm sending it back and never playing it again. The game is hard for me to categorize... I enjoy some things about it and can appreciated the intent, but it's just not something that I find myself having a desire to actually put the time into, I have to force myself every time.... Once I'm done with it I'm going to play through RDR2 again to enjoy playing games again...

It is absolutely a game that is not for everyone and it won't even be a 50/50 split on who actually enjoys it and who doesn't I wouldn't think. I beat it, and I've played it some since, and I've come to realize I don't love it, but there is something about it that can keep me playing. I think the story is a bit pretentious and just gibberish for the most part though, hahaha

Although I ain’t seen much gameplay and don’t know much about it, it feels like one of those pieces of art in an exhibition where it’s too arty for its own good.
meaning you know the ones I am talking about, a messy unmade bed, a dolls head stuck on a carrot with spiders legs sticking out of its ears etc etc and most people thinking “that’s s**t!” But the too cool for school cats going “omg this is amazing and I can totally see what the artist was trying to envision”

They're not zombies, they're freakers, he said that. hahaha
Who said that?
I'm split with this semantics.
Personally prefer the Romero zombie and consider that the only pure zombie... but... then you have to draw the line somewhere, can they walk fast, run, semi run? Biohazard, disease, voodoo/magic, meteor origin? Do they have to be clinically dead?
I'd put these freakers in the zombie genre of monsters.
Last of mushroom heads aren't though

Haha, I's just joshin' ya, I think it was the creative director who said that in an early interview when asked what sets the game apart from other zombie games. The freakers are totally in the same 'type' of enemy as zombies, but because they are not re-animated/ formerly dead people but are still alive they don't consider them zombies, but I don't care what they say, zombies is as good a term to describe them as anything else. If I were to try to describe the game to someone who knew nothing about it I certainly wouldn't say it's a "freaker" killing game...
