I just went through the achievements for this game. Very creative and funny. I'm not looking forward to collecting those hero dolls. After playing through this game like 25 times, I've still never found all the dolls.

This week is like the calm before the moneyspending storm for me. This month I've got Lightning Returns, Tales of Symphonia Chronicles Collector's Edition, and Rambo pre-ordered, and mostly paid up already. Also picking up 3 new Vita games launching here this month: Ys: Memories of Celceta, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, and Toukiden: Age of Demons.

Good thing I save my moneys and live within my means.

@grin89  yes. Exact same game, but with new models and HD textures. All running on a new game engine and on the 360.

@grin89  It's like what they did with Halo 1.  It not renders in HD now but they have updated textures and models and effects.

@themc_7 @LhomityYeah, I'm not expecting anything special. But it's a Rambo game, with a budget price, and a cool little Rambo figurine preorder bonus. Good enough. *shrug*
