This is one of those games that’s been on my perpetual I’ll-get-it-someday list and I have to admit the temptation to purchase it and play it now is very high. If it weren’t for the fact that I’m down to under a $100 in the credit union at the moment I might even give in, but this is a trend I hope does well and leads to others trying it out. I wouldn’t be at all upset to purchase more games in the future when my income is a bit more stable if I could do it for $20 and the time it takes to download and burn my own CD/DVD of it. I’d be all over that like a crack whore on a dealer.
