I'm half convinced that the value of Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ
shot up simply because of the bizarre and hilarious title name. The name is just too good. It should be illegal. It's even better than Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland
, and that was a strange one.Edit
- Realized that the title is actually Freshly Picked: Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland
I gotta say, that title is perhaps just as bizarre as Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ
That Tingle game, though, been on my to play list forever.
