Yeah, yeah… I'm late to the party.

I finally bought Shovel Knight (for Wii U), after only looking at a few reviews/previews for it (one of which came from GBD and TimeHacker).

Before the previews that both TAY and Kotaku put out, I hadn't really given Shovel Knight any consideration. I'm not a particularly big "indie" gamer, so I didn't have any initial interest.

Then I saw the previews. Interest piqued. After that came the reviews. Wow, this game is looking pretty cool. Finally, Game Grumps started playing Shovel Knight. Sold!

I'm surprised that it took until just around the release date for me to even bat an eye in the direction of this game.

So my question is: Are there any games where you just don't feel interested all all, but then you finally see it in action and it completely changes your tune?

If you don't want to talk about this, then feel free to talk about anything else!
