Okay, I haven't picked up Rune Factory again since my early grumblings, and I'm pondering selling it off (it hasn't been released in Europe, so perhaps someone will be happy at spotting it on ebay?)
I have found a title that sounds potentially more interesting to me - The World Ends With You
Key factor for being interested is that it seems to be a lot more touch-screen controlled, and I'm apparently really picky about that. I want my DS games to be stylus heavy. It's also full of funky Japanese stuff, and I am sort of a weeaboo. There are screenshots, which still don't entirely express how it plays, and the official website is still mostly blank. So I certainly can't say "I will be getting this!" Just that I'm curious.
