+1 to Kimgturn. Gemini Rue is a great game to be beaten by though. At least we didn't get beat by the crab game ! (No disrespect to it, it's just not my cup of tea!)

It's utter blasphemy that Blendoku could lose to 1800.

Hey Connector, sorry don't have the time for the wall of text on HDMI and iCade regarding DH4 LOL. But since you voted for it, surely you've got to have some patented tips for avoiding falling into the atrocious IAP system it has. I've been waiting for the Connector playbook like you had for RR3 .

Yeah, well, I'm not too crazy about the trend toward freemiums and wait timers that is for sure. Games like RR3 and DH4, sure I would have liked a whole lot better as a premium app that is for sure.

But I gotta give props for both games in that they are close to console games, and since I pretty much play mainly as a hdmi tv and icade console ipad player, I like games that play well as a console games.

One problem though as of late is that it is kinda hard to be an early adopter as of late due to all the quick 3 day sales, freemium converts, frees, etc, so I am sure this is playing alittle bit in just picking and choosing games to play on release nowadays, which is a little sad.

But nonetheless, all 3 games that I played this week, Blendoku, DH4, and Mr. Crab were all enjoyable. Can't say I really had a favorite really, so picked DH4 cause it rocks on tv with sound pumping loud.

But yeah, I agree with you, would have loved to have seen a premium RR3 or DH4, they could have been TA's Game of the Year. But the reality is, freemiums are probably here to stay, and the constant freemium flamewars in game threads are getting to be a headache to read nowadays. Makes even the chatroom look tame, even with all of our funny picts.

Tips:

1. Don't buy any inapps if you don't wanna.
2. Don't download freemiums if you don't like them.
3. Don't expect Apple to refund $100 inapp cars (Ferraris) when your child buys them.
4. Cry to your mama if you are mad about video games.

^^ NP. I wasn't trying to get into the whole freemium thing. Just remember you had some pretty good tips with RR3 (hence, the "Connector playbook"). Thought you may have figured out how to play DH4 without going into major debt too, so thought I'd ask.

Just like RR3, there's a great game beneath all the timers and BS.

Edit: just saw your tips. Guess I'll just go home and cry.
