“Taz is one of the most popular characters in the Looney Tunes family, and with Galactic Taz Ball kids can have fun for hours with action, exploration, platform challenges and puzzle solving,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Development and Production, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “This creative game packs all of the wild fun that everyone loves about Taz into a handheld experience with two unique modes of play.”
Thanks to Ross M for the news tip!
Edit: I know a lot of you are going to try and pick up the demo as soon as you can, but I think it’s only fair to warn you that most (probably all) Gamestop locations are requiring you to pre-order the game in order to receive a demo. At my location, they assured me that if I didn’t like the demo, I could get a full refund, but I’m not sure if that applies everywhere.
As many of you already may know, demos of Monster Hunter Tri have been distributed to many Gamestop/EB Games a few days early, with many locations already having them in stock. When I heard this, I called up my local Gamestop and asked if they had received their copies. Much to my delight, they did, and I immediately headed out to give it a shot.
When I popped my copy into my Wii and got comfortable up on the couch, I got a little excited. I had never played a Monster Hunter game before, and I had heard a lot of great things about them from fans of the series. Unfortunately, my excitement waned a little bit when I looked at the instructional poster that came with the demo. There were 8 classes represented on the sheet, and each one had a very different style of control. Now, maybe I’m a minority here, but I prefer my games to be kept pretty simple and straight to the point. I’m not a big fan of having to learn long strings of combos or complex controls just to be able to play my game’s tutorial. Regardless, I shoved aside my preconceptions about how much I’d enjoy it and let the title screen roll.
