Shame it will be more than 1000-1500 points in Europe (Damm Retail Release). I don't care for the game much though so it doesn't bother me but i can understand for European gamers who want it.

Man, WiiWare and the VC have so much good content coming out right now, it's hard to pick what to get. I've just spent a lot of points on Mega Man, Mega Man 2, Art Style: Orbitals and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. I really want to get Mega Man 9, as well as Earthworm Jim when it hits the US and World of Goo has been my most anticipated WiiWare game since WiiWare was announced. Also with Animales De La Muerte coming out this month and Eternity's Child coming out soon, it's knd of making me freak out a little bit.

That's great, especially with the possibility of it costing less than 1500 points, especially when the company previously stated that it could cost 2000. If it was on its way to WiiWare over here, ifor me it would be a must buy, but since it's coming to stores instead, I think it'll only get a rental. Other games I'm looking forward to instead of this though are Tetris Party, Alien Crush, Eternity's Child (mainly because of the 500 price point), StrongBad 3-5, LIT, Liight and Fun! Fun! Minigolf.

I really wasn't interested in this one, but it is great that those who are interested (and there seems to be a pretty good number) will get a chance to play it very soon.

Can't we all just play with goo in real life?

Oh, we can? Great, this will probably be the worst WiiWare game to date.

I'll be getting the homebrew out for this one (Starfall for region free channels and AnyRegion Changer for access to US shop*) as the retail release is stupid.
*-And in the extreme scenario, US firmware...

@KnucklesSonic8
Yep, same here. Gonna stick with my prediction of 1000 points however.
@x.SuperMario.X
Eww. Good thing no goo is near me right now, otherwise I would have to build bridges with it! :)

@ Corbie- I can't slip anything past you! :P

@ beastman93- I'd build some stuff too if I had some goo.
No rhyme intended.

I'm not criticising but, why all the fuss with this game? Is it really that good?, well, It's not on my list yet, I'll wait for the review.

@x.supermario.x
Your sarcasm is already poetry. :P, actually you're pretty good at it.;)

Its clear to me now, anything Corbie says is true.

Alright, thanks for the price point info! 1500 is steep but I think it'll be worth it. Can't wait for Mondays now, a complete sin usually!

Eh, 1500 points. I'm ok with that as the long as the game gives me enough to make it worth it.

Wow 1500 points. Well unlike Plättchen I have a good feeling that this will be worth it. Plus at least the WiiWare price costs less than the PC version.

Well I'm about to sit down and play through World of Goo. I've been waiting for this moment since I first read about the game. Here's hoping it lives up to the hype. :)
