How long has it been since the last time we've been able to control inch-high spacefarer Captain Olimar and his army of sentient plants? Almost ten years? It's almost surreal that the third game in the Pikmin series is finally almost upon us. If you simply cannot wait any iota of time longer than necessary, you may want to get to a GameStop (or EB Games in Canada) on July 20th or 21st, where demos for Pikmin 3 will be made available to the public.
Then, if you truly cannot contain your anticipation, you can pre-order the digital version from GameStop and start playing it on August 3rd, while your friends and neighbors will have to wait a full day before the official release on August 4th. How much do you love Pikmin? How much do you want Pikmin? How much do you crave Pikmin?
Of course, the answers to those questions are irrelevant if you don't live in the United States or Canada. Sorry Europe! As consolation, you get the game before us anyway.
