Depends on what its like. If its fresh and new and fills a hole that the appstore needs, then people will go crazy for it. Sometimes, games just look like a hit (Aralon for example). If it also sets the bar for something (Infinity Blade for graphics, ME for longevity) it will get a lot of recognition.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm pretty damn excited for the upcoming Bug Heroes update. It's practically going to be a brand new game with the amount of content packed into it(new heroes, levels, enemies, turrets, etc...).

Been looking forward to Final Fantasy Tactics as well because I know it will play better on the touchscreen opposed to the PSP version. Really have my fingers crossed for an iPad version release the same day as the iPhone/iTouch version since it's most likely not going to offer universal support. Other than that, I guess whatever is intriguing until then...

Uh a good game?
Please don't tell me you thought that hype over something like Minigore was actually worth it, and you want the same thing to repeat over another unworthy game. O_o
This entire last month, or last two months, has been so slow for new games coming out. Barely anything great came out at all. The only game that I still play that came out over the last two months is Drawn: The Painted Towers on iPad. Other than that I'm still stuck with SFIV, Gamebook Adventures, and Sad Princess.

The underhyped: JuBeat, Drawn: The Painted Tower, Beatrider, Phoenix Wright, Broken Sword, Cut the Rope, Paladog, Isotope, Crystal War, Scarlett
