The library thing is a novel idea (no pun intended), but seems kind of strange in a game like this. I could see it working in a "find it" type game or, of course, an educational game. I'll be interested to see how it works -- and even if it is restricted to the US/Europe is any library location going to be available or only "select" libraries? I'm assuming it has to do with scanning an ISBN number.

Even though it doesn't require as much effort, I hate games that require you to use any social networking site (foursquare in this case) to do things.

Still willl await some more feedback on this one. It sounds great and E-P's mention of Blood Roofs certainly peaks my interest as it's currently my favorite game.

Only thing with this and Amazing Runner's releases tonight is that as much as I love runners, I'm starting to have too many of them and like to keep my 8 GB's catalog diverse with other game types I like.

Impress me....and I'll still bite.

Still no impressions on this one? After watching some of Sanuku's video, I'm not sure if I'm sold on the gameplay.

yessss! graphics reminds me Rodney Matthews artwork, in fact some progressive and hard rock bands from 70s and 80s, like Eloy, Magnum, Diamond Head, etc, use his paintings in their album covers... i had all his books and most of those bands lps...

Hmm.. I guess I clearly don't get why people are so hyped up for this game and praising it so much. I watched Sanuku's video and I got bored after a few minutes because all that was happening was: *hit* *run, run, run* *hit* *run run run* etc, over and over again. It just looks so repetitve, maybe thats just me, I don't know. Can anyone please tell me why this game is so good?

However, I do love the artwork and backgrounds in the game but I personally do not think that itself is worth $2.99.

It is? Can't really tell from the video because all the gameplay is is just running and hitting..
