Another look at Rayman Origins.

Seriously, you guys, this game is great. It's easy to be a cynic and cry "what full price for a 2D platformer why release it now nope not gonna buy it." But seriously. Don't be a cynic. This game is great. It easily has enough content to justify full price, it's super creative all the way through, and it plays amazingly well. This is the best platformer in years, and yes, I am counting Nintendo's recent offerings. If you're standing in the store looking to spend some money on a game and trying to decide between this and, say, Saints Row, then get this. Saint's Row will be there later, and doesn't need the support this game does. We need to buy more games like this at release and send the message that, yes! we want more games like this! It's not a risk to make a game without guns in it! We want more games that are this gleefully celebratory of the medium. Well, at least I do...

I'll probably get this now because it's $40 at Gamestop. I was never going to get this at $60 when I have other bigger games to play.

I've paid full price for 2D platformers (*counts*, NSMB, Epic Yarn, Return to Dream Land, Donkey Kong Country Returns, FlingSmash, LittleBigPlanet, LittleBigPlanet 2), at least 7 times in the last 2 years, so the whole "lol 2D nope" thing has baffled me for ages. Those aren't even counting the DS games I bought new either. Glad to hear yet another good 2D platformer (seriously, they've been on a huge come back in case no one noticed) has landed, but let's not pretend it's the only full price worthy one.

I think I'll wait for it to go on sale.
