Less likely to buy - 1

Am I really the only one?

No, you can add me to that list. Rumble wasn't my thing. Quite uninteresting.

That is sad. I got great enjoyment out of the game without purchasing any of the DLC. It's challenging, but I like games to be tough.

I downloaded the FFCC MLAA Dark Lord demo. I didn't expect to like it particularly anyway and I decided NOT to download it after playing the demo. "Less likely to buy" therefore. The presentation was top notch and the gameplay easy to get to grips with its just that that kind of strategy game doesn't appeal to me.

However, OVERALL, i will say free downloadable demos will make me more likely to download titles. I'd love a demo of Magnetis for example as I still can't decide whether to download that or not.

The DS downloads available on the Ninty Channel have made me purchase certain games I wouldn't have previously eg. Picross

I have to say that Darklord becomes more interesting when you have aquired a number of powered-up monsters and different floors to use. Sure the gameplay will be the same but there's more variety later on.

Aye, and to be fair its recieved very good reviews pretty much across the board (eg. 90% from ONM). Just not my kind of bag I guess. I'll give it another go though.

Your poll results are very misleading Chicken. For instance, I assume I was counted as "more likely to buy" Pokemon, which is true... my odds increased from 0% to around 1% :p

Nope...yours was among those disregarded as it didn't pull strongly in either a positive or negative direction (at least not that I could discern...I'm fundamentally unable to pick up on shifts of 1% or less. :) )

This. It gets quite challenging too. That will make some people run to the shop channel to get upgrades, but I'm making my way through. Sometimes you fail a few times, but changing your strategy up will get ya through. I refuse to buy DLC. Great game though for $10 even with whats included.

World of Goo is my next purchase! Didn't give it a thought before getting the free demo. Actually thought it would be lame! (Shame on Mii) I have a young gamer in the house and he was into it too! Mom actually had to boot us off!
As regards Bit.Trip, I got into it... into it... into it... into it... into it... (<-- dude, this guyz trippin')... Exactly! I used to dabble before I became GAMERDAD, so this game will not be in my collection... Although I really got into it... into it... into it... into it...
You get the point right? LOL
No longer into the Pokemon bit (<-- UH OH, there's that BIT thing again... and again... and ag- WAIT?! Am I spamming? LOL)

Stay tuned for Sig Update!

Those stats seem to go well with what I have seen. Played three demos now (Nyx, Darklord and Rumble) and the Pokemon Rumble demo was easily the best. I wasn't at all interested in it before but after... I am slightly less not at all interested. I still won't get it but the demo certainty exceeded my expectations.

Some anecdotal evidence. I gifted a friend Bit Trip Beat and when I was later talking to him he said that it was a very "twitchy" game but had a lot of potential. He said that he was fairly impressed until it was pretentious enough to take him to the "buy this game now" page on the shop channel. On a different tangent, looking on the sales charts the Bit Trip Beat demo is easily the least popular of the first lot of demos but it seems to have improved sales the most. Something to think about I guess, I'd love to be the dude looking at the actual sales numbers right about now.

I am more likely to download Pokemon Rumble having played the demo. At 1500 points though, it won't be at the top of my list.

It's ironic how the Darklord Demo gets the most negative responses, but is the only game that came back into the WiiWare TOP 20 after the demos were released.

Just played through the Pokémon Rumble and the World of Goo serie. I'm probably not getting any of them.

Pokémon Rumble was ok, but it was repetitive and with only one move per character not that fun. I like the look but felt no connection with the Pokémon. There is no levelling up, evolutions, learning new or extra moves. You just play, get a Pokémon, switch to the powerful one and so on and so on. I started as Ratata but as soon as a stronger Pokémon comes along, he gets dumped to the bottom of the list. That's no way to thread a Pokémon. I even dumped my favorite Pokémon, Bulbasaur, because he only had Leech Seed, which was useless and slow. I also don't like that when you switch Pokémon the game don't pauzes. Very annnoying in battle. But it was ok, but I'm not getting this for 1500 Wii Points.

I liked World of Goo, but I don't understand the high praises and marks it gets. A 10 on NintendoLife. Really. I loved the music and the graphical style, but the gameplay was difficult to master. Mostly thanks to control issues. This get painfully clear in the last level of the demo (frog and balloons). It needed quick response to add a balloon after adding a Goo. But when I went for a balloon, I got a Goo, hence losing the level and restarting it. And the thing just keep moving so much, it's just difficult to try and add a Goo very quickly. I just keep throwing them away. I like the demo of World of Goo but I'm not getting it for 1500 Wii Points.

Oh I am in total agreement with you on this. I am working my way through the game right now without any DLC and I love the challenge too. Just with this site and other forums that I post on I have seen a lot of comments where people believe that some of the DLC content is necessary and when others see that comment, I believe it prevents them from giving the game a chance. That and I thionk sometimes people run to the easy solution sometimes and SE capitalizes on that lol.

I never thought of those houses at the bottom. But it's silly. My Bulbasaur can do a move that only Rock Pokémon can do.That just doesn't make sense. And it's just getting stronger Pokémon and playing as them. At the end of the demo, I got a level 100 Pokemon (so the demo ends). I assume that beyond this point the enemies get stronger, so why even bother with my Level 28 Bulbasaur (even though he knows two moves).

Lets see:

NyxQuest - More likely to buy. This one surprised me the most, so far, with the way it plays.
World of Goo - Less likely to buy (Not my kind of puzzle), but this was based from playing the PC demo.
Bit Trip Beat - BOUGHT IT because of the demo. Hard gameplay, but in a good way that will keep me coming back to try and try again.
My Life as a Darklord - Haven't tried the demo.
Pokemon Rumble - More likely to buy, but the cost is killing me. >.<
