    It’s about damn time! I already 200/200’d it on Xbox, but this is a great romp around the old-school Castle days.. People don’t buy this for 15, it’s too small, unless they include all the extra characters and levels for 15. I’d wait for a 25%-50% sale.

    Saw this on Xbox forever ago. It looks interesting. No solid release date just this summer probably in August.

    Does anyone else have a say on this?

    I’m thinking 15 bucks might be more than I’m willing to pay for this game.
