@frostyryan: Yep, they just renamed it for the rerelease. Playing Mother 1 isn't really required since it's less refined and barely connected to the other games. Still cool that it finally came out, though.

@sparky_buzzsaw: Yep, at least 10 bucks off, on top of the free shipping. Nice while it lasted.

@ares42: Yep, that's pretty much how I felt about Hollow Knight when I tried it. I know a lot of people love it, though. The sequel looks cool, but probably not for me.

I used to pre-order more often when Amazon offered discounts for doing so. They've since taken that away, so it's back to scrounging around for deals on pre-owned stuff. I did pre-load Smash Bros. Ultimate since I figured the eshop would have a lot of traffic when it came out.

If you know the game's your thing, I think pre-ordering is totally reasonable. Maybe I just need a big letdown to change my mind.

Here's my "pro strat" to the Fugitive, I got silent assassin both times around.

Camp out in the bathroom near the security room. Subdue everyone in there and pile them in one of the stalls. Don't dump them in the closet, though! Hitman 2 now has working mirrors, so don't get in view when you're choking. At least two of the potential targets will walk near the bathroom, so coin them in when they get close. Drag them over to the closet, and the game won't let you dump the real target. Snap his neck and you're good to go!

This raises more questions than it answers. What was Retro working on until now? Surely it didn't take them 4 years to finish NEW FUNKY MODE. I take the Star Fox rumors with a heavy grain of salt. There were also rumors that Retro was experiencing some huge troubles internally. How bad was the original product if they are restarting with Retro?

However, I am really happy that Nintendo made this decision, and made it publicly at that. I don't even like Metroid Prime that much, but series fans were put through the wringer for so many years. It seemed like Nintendo didn't care about this franchise that spawned a massive genre of games. That Nintendo probably would have put this original game out because it won't do Zelda or Mario numbers. Starting over and addressing the public shows they care about this series again.

Hopefully this move pays off, and Prime 4 is everything it can be. Though F-Zero fans still have no luck.

@omgfather: Yeah, I'm sure a lot of people - including me - thought the same thing. I'm happy to support the studio, but some clearer communication would have been appreciated.

Into the Breach for sure. Might pick up Obra Dinn as well.

Really enjoyed reading this. At some point before release I decided this game wasn't what I'm looking for right now, so I passed it up.

My brother just got it today. Our tastes have diverged lately, so I'm really curious what he will think about it.

And of course, the GOTY podcasts next week...
