What is going on today?! Nintendo and Sony franchises, PC ports and Warhammer, loads of soft launches...going to be a busy weekend playing through all of this!

Edit: A few short impressions. This is stunning, more than just a cash-in or "interactive advert", it's actually one of the nicest runners I've played in a long time. It feels like LBP as well, with the sounds, characters and stickers to collect. Initially I was concerned that it would get repetitive but as soon as I thought that the environment changed so I'm pretty impressed. It's also absolutely beautiful, really captures the essence of the console games. Needs more Stephen Fry, though I'd say that's a fair criticism of everything that doesn't have Stephen Fry in it.

IAPs: Currency doubler, should be $4.99 so not that cheap. All the usual consumable currency packs are intact as expected but at least there's only one currency. Earned enough in the tutorial and one run to buy the first costume that adds a multiplier so it's not too shabby.

Hurghhhh omg more interesting games. Though it seems a bit big. I'm tempted. But it's free so why not I suppose. I feel like I'm installing everything I see once I got 128 GB :\ Bad idea.

I'm impressed, this is one of the coolest endless runners I played in a long time. Great visuals, many missions and upgrades. The best thing is that you can run different paths. First I thought that it's way too easy but as soon as it speeds up a bit, it gets challenging to avoid the obstacles.

Now lets hope the dev adds Game Center!

Colour me impressed- an endless runner from a large company that, dare I say, doesn't look half bad!

Today is the first day of the rest of my life...but so is tomorrow...

Looks really good! I hope we see this in the Australian store when it's released. I'm worried if it's Sony that we might not get it 😥
