I search and was surprised to not see a thread for this already.



Looks beautiful and Amazon has it for preorder for $37.

Don't forget if you preorder at Gamestop you get a Blob stress-reliever doll. .......

I have fond memories of playing this game as a kid.

I really wish Amazon would get some of these pre-order bonuses, I really hate paying taxes at GameStop.

Probably was made in Paint.

I look forward to the game. Here's to hoping I have the ability to purchase it around release, but if not, oh well. Some point or another I guess.

Just a quick bump to remind everyone that it is only 11 days until the official ship date. Gamestop has it listed for 10/6, though I do not know whether this is an error or not. They're selling it for $39.99 with a pre-order bonus (Blob stress ball). Amazon has the official date, and they're selling it for $35.99 with no pre-order bonus.

Yeah, I saw somewhere else that it was supposed to come out next week rather than the following week. Either way, I'm excited.

I'd like to get this game, if it comes out on tuesday as gamestop lists. The following week both Brutal Legend and Uncharted 2 come out, so then boy and his blob will have to wait. Any word yet why gamestop has it listed for next week? Are they getting it early or is it a mistake?

That trailer is pure Disney.

I'm planning on picking it up. Hopefully it won't be as nerve-wracking as the original. I think this one tells you on screen what the jellybeans do.

Nintendo Power gave it an 8.5. I think I'll request it from Goozex when it's live. Looks pretty great. 80 levels is amazing.

Majesco should have commissioned a bigger Blob for the GS bonus. Not enough to sway me from Amazon discounts!

Agreed

$30.xx > $39.99+tax

I could just order a white stress ball and draw the face myself.

They need to record better next time. The frame skipping is not a good way to promote your game. Unless that's the actual in game camera, then we have an issue here.

Love the art style on this or really anything that looks like the hand-drawn style you might find in stuff like Odin Sphere.

Tempted to either get this Gold Box + ECA for ~$30 or just pre-order at GameStop and get a potentially cool little blob stress doll to go with my Little King's Story stress doll.

IGN gave it a 7.6. I find their reviews to be a bit more positive than other sites so it's a bit of a concern to me.
