A good use for those $10 coupons that we are all stockpiling like firearms:

For all of you who don't already have this game, get it. It's easily the most addictive game this generation. You'll be amazed at how much gameplay you get out of it.

Argh I would totally be in for this with a $10 coupon if I didn't have it already.

What's the difference between this and the first one? Gameplay videos look similar

Same question, I've played some of the first one, and it's great, but the first one is hard enough for me, I'm not sure I'll ever get through it to be ready for another one.

"Currently not available online."

Pre-owned copies are only 12.99 and are still in stock. Damn good deal.

They should be factory sealed, but I have received a few that had been gutted & rewrapped (they were all older titles, so they probably didn't have many left). If they're resealed, you should be able to exchange at a local store for a factory sealed copy (if available) or return in-store.

Not available online? Means I can't use that coupon code I got from buying one of those other games from the email then, huh? :(

It's MUCH easier and harder at the same time but not as batshit crazy in the first one. Cannon doesn't level down anymore, tons of 1-up opportunities if you know how to pull them off, soundtrack is loads better, and you don't have to do the whole stage over if you get a game over at the boss.

Also, this:

I still haven't finished the first one on the DS. I might get this eventually.

How come there wasn't a PSP version of this game?

The rounds in this game take place on the top screen simultaneously with what's happening on the touch screen.

Yes, and the game's online mode will actually let you filter for paddle-only players.

Moe-themed stage 5 (which is completely random and unrelated to the rest of the game) clinched it for me.

Yes, I'm a sucker for anime-themed stuff. :D

I hope this comes to XBLA eventually. Not that I wouldn't mind getting it for the DS, but I picked up the 1st one when it hit XBLA. I like to try and keep series on one platform is possible. Though I almost want to buy it now for stage 5...music was stuck in my head over the weekend.

She's in every final stage although that themed stage makes it more blatant than the others.

Just called a local B&M Gamestop. It's the same price in-store too.
