Topic.




I enjoyed shantae and metroid fusion(gba) a lot. I have 10 bucks on the e shop, but mega man 2 is coming soon(bought and enjoyed mm1), and i hear good things about gunman clive... not to mention ikachan and bloody vampire are coming out, and should both prolly be about 5 bucks each. Alternatively, i could throw another 20 down once i get paid n get unchained blades. Thoughts?

It's not an action platformer, its a puzzle platformer. More like Pushmo than Shantae.

EDIT: Read it as Cave and not Cave Story, never mind.

I wouldn't, if you have a computer you can use you could just get the freeware version, or wait for steam to have a sale.

The game is 100% legally free on the PC, paying for it is a waste of time.

Hm. I prefer pc for all fps, but for every other genre i prefer console(rpgs are playable on pc as well as console tho imo).

That being said, i might just follow ur guys advice. Im watchin a video of ikachan rite now n im fallin in love lol. Thanks fellas!

get Cave Story Plus for PC it has a LOT MORE to do, although not 3D at all...

This. The only reason to have Cave Story on your DS is for portability.

...Wow. Apparently that whole "support the developer" mentality has passed.
