Jim Sterling is pretty much a douche, I'll admit. I like his Sonic reviews because of the time and thought he puts into them, but that's about it.


LOL. agreed. I will on occasion, read his reviews on titles, but I have never based a purchased on anything he wrote. I get the impression he, like other writers, attempts to get more looks-hits by trolling. I get the impression he is the type that will beat a dead horse until it is a rotten, fetid, sloppy mess.

Just from looking at the Nin2-Jump screens, is it anything like Super Meat Boy? As in short, digestible platform levels? 'Cause I love SMB and will jump on this (no pun intended) if that's the case.


Yeah, it's all about short platforming levels, and getting to the end as quickly as possible (with some collect-a-thon elements too). It's much, much easier than Meat Boy though, since it feels like it was aimed at children (partially because the entire game is played in front of a peanut gallery of children who shout in Japanese at your ninja).

Got Karkland dlc since i just bought the game yesterday. I was actually going to hold off playing online until it went on sale so thats cool I didn't even have to wait 24 hours. I'm going to redownload some of the trials to the other games on sale. Meh on next weeks sale.

Went ahead and bought ninjump. I'll buy just about any game for 2.50

Yes, it is. The first retail disc included Yahtzee, Connect 4, Sorry, Sorry Sliders, Scrabble, Battleship, Boggle.


Yeah, I wasn't interested in the full game, certainly not at full price. I bought Battleship and Scrabble on their own on sale. Sorry Sliders was an accident. The wife seems to like Yahtzee, so I'll get that this week. Total price to me: $20

The disk still costs $44 on Amazon. If I get the other 'disk' games at $5 each as well, I'd have them all at $35 (but I won't)

Yes to the short, digestible levels. A few simple collectibles to grab in each level as well.

No in regards to the difficulty. Not even close to SMB. I mean, thousands and thousands of miles apart.

I am the same way, except I skipped out on some of the 200 point Genesis classics because I have them on disc already.

Bummer about next week's deals.

Microsoft does way too many of these "war FPS" deals.


I agree. However this week was encouraging in that were more sales than what Major Nelson mentioned.

Print run on the disk version was sparse. It was a fucking bitch and a half to corral at a lower price when I picked up my hard copy version (must-have-all-disk games crazy me). Amazon's price is pretty consistent. GoHastings and Ebay have had a few steals for it, but I don't anticipate the value dipping.

Sadly, I wasn't as smart when it came to NCAA Basketball 2010. It's a sports game, why wouldn't I be able to get it for under $7?
