That is very smart of you, save your beans,
and sadly, no I haven't got around to picking it up, but I will tell you..the story of RE:coded is very very weak.
But the gameplay is very fun, similar to BBS, and every world has a "twist" to it gameplay wise. So don'y go into the game expecting a deep story, although, the end cut-scene and the Secret ending give you a preview of the next game
but this game looks to be alot more fun then DAYS was.
EDIT: I bought it today! lol it's pretty fun, although the camera and lock-on system need some getting use to, and the level up system is more complex than it needs to be :/
