It's certainly a QUIET game. No soundtrack or voice acting help keep the price down, I suppose. It took five years for Psychonauts to drop to $10 on line (disregarding the total randomness of various stores' bargain bins.)

It's a bit like playing an interactive comic book, really, but with a bit more motion. I love starting a new DF game, there is that DF magic and it's like Christmas and birthday all rolled into one except this is a hat trick because it is Halloween, too. I haven't played much, just up to the first intersection with the cop, the jack'o'lanterns and the ghostie boys (or are they zombie boys?). Lot of housework, just because the landlord's rep wants to come in (not an inspection, she's new and just wants to familiarize herself with the properties) but man it puts a crimp in my sloth.

The first battle seemed a bit easy, after two normal volleys and an akagayama missle attack it was over. Doesn't really count, I suppose, being the intro battle and it kept saying wouldn't you like to do this? Hit the square, the triangle, the square, go on. Eh, ok, bit of handholding never hurts. This isn't Fallout:New Vegas. Which I wouldn't play, anyway. Maybe after the housecleaning I'll have time to get obsessed with CQ as I did with PN and BS.

And Reynold, especially when he smiles, is starting to look more like Ornery Boy than Chum Chum.

The script is precious DF as ever, especially with Reynold leading Wren around followed by her acerbic comments on his intellect and leadership abilities.

I do hope a lot of people are buying this. Double Fine QA, when do you guys get sales stats from PSN/XBL?

PS--what it lacks in soundtrack it makes up for in vibration. Made me laugh, and I'm trying to figure out how to play it with my trousers.

So I don't have my own account right now, but I downloaded the demo on my friend's Xbox. I really enjoyed this exchange towards the end:

Random Character: This party is reserved for people who bought the FULL VERSION OF COSTUME QUEST!

You: Woah. That was Meta.

Buddy: I hope the full version of the game respects the fourth wall more.
