The Squeeball promotion seems to be in full swing. This is how the reviewers are being bribed in America. This promo seems like a good idea, but I would have liked to have had a tighter reign on the quality control over these chaps... and don't get me started on the website. The perils of being a character designer means that you can't get too attached to your creations as more often than not, you're only there for the birth.
A claim on a previous post that the game would be released simultaneously here and in the US, turns out not to be the case. We'll see it in Europe for Christmas.
