But then I'm still a bit confused as to where the gameplay is in this - apart from just watching various things burn. I'm hoping to be proven wrong...
Some things don't fit in a category. This is a console/Wii U game and carries that price. Actually, it's 1/3rd the price it was on the Wii ($15) and we are getting a stupidly awesome deal. Even on the steam sale, it's $10.
This isn't a $0.99 game. Look at the quickly produced dollar games out there, this is well more than that. For example, many console games at $60 are only 5 hours long, does that make then poor games? Not in any way. World of goo was $10 when it launched and was a more defined and clear game, with more play time... But it's a different game with different gameplay and it's just... Different.
I don't know how to explain it. The whole "meh it's only worth a dollar". It just really frustrates me, no one says this stuff about the same games in any other game store. The App Store mentality needs to change, or these games will cease to exist.
