I'm interested in how quickly fatigue will set in with Kickstarter. People get excited about things when they first hear of it, but complacent after a while. I'll be surprised if games are able to get much out of the service after a year or so.

I think that's happened to all of the indie bundles. They used to be a somewhat rare occurrence, but now there's seemingly 2 or 3 going on every month, and I've stopped paying attention. They've oversaturated the market with them, and the overall quality of the games in the bundles seems to have gone down as well.

Heh, it was the Humble Indie Bundles that I had in mind when posting that. I also have basically stopped paying attention to them because of the frequency.

@DarkDude: I agree, I now wish I had played it this way from the beginning.

I just finished playing it again. This time i made sure to stay with other players. I lost my partner twice according to the stats at the end. I have to say it's much better sticking with someone, although I still don't feel its 'one of the most amazing games ever', simply very good.

I'm gonna play it again and try to stay with another player. If they go off like they did my first time, I'll just follow them this time and see how that goes.

@Spoonman671: I dont' want my OP to make anyone think its bad, its quite good and I don't regret playing it. I just don't see why it's being touted as one of the best games on PS3 or a GOTY.

@AhmadMetallic: which is the part where it fell short for me. I think the journey part of the game wasn't as interesting as the word of mouth would have you believe.

I just finished the game in one sitting (which seems to be the proper way). While it looks good and has great music, I don't see where all the 'best game on ps3 ever' type of comments are coming from. Going from beginning to end of each chapter wasn't difficult and I didn't get any emotional feelings about any of it. I also found the coop to be pointless. I ran into (it said 10) players but I didn't find they added to the experience and most of the time I had no idea where they went after a few minutes. All in all, I liked it, but think its being way over-hyped. I feel like Flower was a better game from TGC.

I guess that's a no. I'm not sure I can wait until the Wii U to play it, might have to try to borrow a Wii.

So I really have the itch to play some Rhythm Heaven. I no longer have a DS and I don't own a Wii, so I'm hoping that someone knows of a good clone or something in the same vein as RH on either PC or IOS. So...do ya?
