Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Cave Story on the Wii! Huzzah!

    It is awesome.

    There's an mp3, but it's of the same thing. Page turning and all. Yuck.

    You know what could be awesome? If this version somehow had Samus as a playable version.

    So the new sprite for Toroko was put up on Pixel's Cave Story blog.

    I like the changes personally.

    I think I like it except that her face shape was changed with the cheek jutting out. I prefer the nearly-symmetrical look. Also...I dunno, it's just less clean. By adding the cat mouth and eye shine it's trying too hard to be cute.

    You're also seeing her sprite blown up to ZOMG HUEG. The eye shine pixel will look like eye shine at normal sizes.

    Thanks to those who suggested the sword for that tank boss. Although actually it was a combination of that and 5 beers that made it possible for me to beat it! Who says drinking doesn't improve gaming ability (or random luck)! Onwards to the rest of this glorious game!

    I prefer the old style graphics for toroko, but i'm a sucker for old school pixel art. I guess the new one may look better when not blown up to stupidly large sizes.

    I guess I might be seeing it wrong. This is basically what I see:

    And maybe some might prefer it that way but I like it simpler.

    Man no wonder you hate it. Pikachu always has to jump in and ruin the shot.

    Incidentally, has anyone posted the cave story remix project yet? It's not bad.

    It's definitely not trying too hard to be cute.

    God that water level is hard when you start with 3 hp. Got to the fish boss after about 10 attempts, and had him to half health. They really should let me refuel my health before doing such a level!

    The trick to getting the best ending is reading the FAQs because it makes no fucking sense. You need to start reading when you reach the Sand Zone. That's where you begin reading ahead.

    The action and exploration are pure gold though.

    Luckily, you can turn off either the new music or new graphics.

    Is it just me, or did they completely butcher that Grasstown theme. It's way too slow, and all my favorite bits are changed around.

    They just butchered the music. Did you hear Balrog's theme? It's like someone threw it into Mario Paint.

    I'm still hoping that the music is WIP midis that were thrown in to make the game presentable...I've noticed the "victory" theme is absent.

    Yeah, they definitely changed too much. All that's the same is the tune. The tempo and the feel of the song are way different, and while it's not horrible it's not Cave Story.

    Gametrailers has some gameplay footage up. They put up a bumper stating that the artwork is work-in-progress. The music is work-in-progress, too. There was also a strange bug where the music was playing at about 17-percent slower than it should. The sound effects haven’t been balanced and are WAAAAAY too loud in the footage you see here. Did I mention the music and audio aren’t complete? We promise the sound effects won’t make anyone’s ears bleed.

    Thank god. I thought something was off with the sound effects, especially the way the power triangles were INCREDIBLY LOUD AND ANNOYING when they were bouncing.

    Oh my Hell is difficult

    After getting through it, though, you can go through the rest of the game and have zero problems.

    It's too bad a Contra-like difficulty wasn't built in. Everything kills you in one hit!

    Though I guess that wouldn't work for that first room in Hell.

    I'd panic more about OHKOs in the SECOND room than the first room D:

    (edit) fuck I have the music from that area stuck in my head now :(

    It does not seem like that but enemy spawning is fixed. Take your time and kill huge groups before moving on.
