    I hope this date is legit now. I really want to play it. I kickstarted it, but I keep forgetting about it.

    Seems legit to me!

    Wishing I'd dropped $50 for the box. It's quite elegant.

    Wow, hadn't paid much attention to this title before. It looks incredible.

    Also, the music. The music! It's not just me, right? It's really good? Because I think it's really good.

    Oooh, the instruction manual is nice. Really does remind me of the old days of instruction booklets.

    Man, this game will keep you on your toes at points. Definitely has that oldschool mentality; some are definitely going to think it cheap, but it walks that fine line where paying attention and adjusting your strategy can see you through. Definitely keep that in mind if you're thinking of buying.
    Screw Spectre Knight.

    One full glorious weekend with the wife gone to enjoy this game. Good timing for me.

  • manwiththemachinegunmanwiththemachinegun METAL GEAR?! Registered User regular
    Launch trailer is on YouTube! Dang that music is great. Rockin castlevania style.

  • ViskodViskod Registered User regular
    I think it sounds more Mega Man than Castlevania. But the castle in the distance of the first level is totally a Castlevania nod.

  • Blood DriveBlood Drive Registered User regular
    Anytime I see pics of this game I start hearing the Megaman 2 start screen music run through my head. I don't know why and more importantly I don't care.

  • ViskodViskod Registered User regular
    I think there's a serious chance I'll end up buying this on both my 3DS and Wii U.

    Because I can take my 3DS to work with me and I'll be sitting there Thursday, and no way I don't download it at some point to play in my downtime.

    But when I get home well, of course I'll want it on my TV!

    If only Nintendo didn't have an ass backwards account system I could buy it once, download it twice, and move my save data.

    We are on the verge of Shovel Knight. It will be out tomorrow.

  • ZythonZython Registered User regular
    I still need to decide between the Wii U/3DS version. I'm probably gonna go with Wii U, since I doubt I'd get too many street passes.

    I've got 3DSbux all ready to go, but may buy it on Steam as well.

    I cannot wait for tomorrow.

    I'm getting it on Wii U. I may get it elsewhere, but Wii U is where my key from the Kickstarter is going.

  • KrathoonKrathoon Registered User regular
    Debating on getting the Deluxe. Might as well give them a little extra.

  • PinfeldorfPinfeldorf Yeah ZestRegistered User regular
    Maybe this game will replace Spelunky in my daily sidescroller drug injection.

    I can hope!

    This game is amazing. Already one of my favorites. I hope more people pick this up tomorrow. This thread needs more love.

    eShop doesn't think it's the 26th yet for me. :(

  • manwiththemachinegunmanwiththemachinegun METAL GEAR?! Registered User regular
    Just got through the first stage. Oh man, my 8-bit feels, they are present!

  • ViskodViskod Registered User regular
    I still can't buy it. I thought the eshop always had releases ready to go at midnight.

  • Blood DriveBlood Drive Registered User regular
    SO much tasty flavor! Loving it!

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    Oh man, these subweapons. These subweapons are so good. The game gets more like Castlevania by the minute.

  • The WolfmanThe Wolfman Registered User regular
    It's probably way too early to tell, but does it hold up? The problem I have with some "retro" games is that the designers sometimes get "nostalgia" and "bullshit" mixed up. There was a lot of really good stuff back then. There was also a lot of really dumb bullshit too, we just put up with it because we were young, dumb, and didn't know any better.

    Just wanted to pop in and say how glad I am that I kickstarted this, it's really fantastic. Easily an 8 or a 9 so far. Just the feel and the music alone are super choice. Very polished.

    That being said, kind of mad that my favorite designed knight Spectre was pretty much a push over.

    So....Wii U vs 3DS? I'm still not sure where do I want to play it...

    A quick tip, if the question is, "can you shovel it?" the answer 99% of the time: yes.

    At least you'll get to play as him.

    Spectre took me a few times.

  • ViskodViskod Registered User regular
    So, for everyone who is playing this or was able to buy it last night, did you kickstart it? Because the eShop still just shows it as "Coming Soon"

    That's because it hasn't been released yet except to those that Kickstarted it. We'll get it later today, have patience

    edit: Steam says it will unlock in approximately 5 hours so use that as a general guidline as to when it'll be available.
