    I find it strange that so many Wii U games are belated sequels to franchises that were never on nintendo systems before.

    I mean, I can see getting AC3 having never played the others before, the overarching story kinda sucks. But who wants to start at Mass Effect 3 for the same price the trilogy is on the other systems? Even Arkham City you’ll be missing a bit of info.And if you played the prequels on other systems before, it’s a safe bet you’ve played the Wii U entries on PS360, and they are still charging full price?

    It’s nice that Nintendo is finally getting on the nextgen wagon, but I wonder how many people will really want to start in on these series so far in?

      And to stay on topic.  Trine 2 is a terrible game.  Beautiful game for sure, but one of the most boring games I’ve played this gen.  Stay away Wii U owners.  Stay away.

        I found Trine 2 to be a pretty fun game. I beat it fairly quickly but at the same time I think I got it for €7 on the PS Store so I hardly didn’t get my money’s worth. Can I ask why you found it so boring? It seemed like an innovative platformer to me and as you pointed out it was beautiful visual wise.

           I’ve played the game and it’s far from terrible, it’s actually really good and the game is a blast with other players and not only that but it’s playable in 3D!

        To each their own. I love Trine 2.

        And even if you *don’t like* the game, that doesn’t make it terrible.

        Not sure why you say its boring. The game is a visual treat and co-oping with friends is all sorts of good fun.

        It’s Trine 2, as in Sans one.

        I have no idea if the two are heavily connected, but it is on topic.

    Wow, this looks REALLY good. Why is it worth only $20? Is it really short or something?

    • Zack Bentley

      Most Digital/Indie games are 20 or less. 

      20 is actually on the high end for a game like this.

    God, I love this series. And I see that Trine 2 is even better than first one! This game has some kind of magic into it. And this beautiful music is pure pleasure.
