I don't know how it happened, but I read two reviews of Cave Story and still have no idea what kind of game it even is.

 

 

 

There ya go, should be the same version.  Even though I have it on PC I think I'm going to get it while it's on sale because it seems a much better fit for the 3DS.

That's what I said when I bought a 540 MB hard drive for my Pentium I computer. 

Did that PC ever need more space?

Picked up Mutant Mudds and Witch and Hero.  I am pretty sure I am done with this sale.

Played the Witch and Hero demo last night and that right there is the definition of a grindy game.  Took me at least an hour, maybe two, to beat the extensive demo so I think I'm pretty satisfied with that and won't sink who knows how much more time into the full game.  Still think they should have put it at $2 instead of $3 and it would be an easier impulse purchase.

Bought a 32GB Sandisk card from Amazon. It'll be here Tuesday. Jumping from 2GB to 32 - I can't imagine I will ever need more space.


I wonder when ill run out. I have a 32gb card with 60,000 blocks left. Retail games can be up to 10 000 blocks and will only get bigger. I'll probably run out in a year or two

Yeah, I have a 32GB with 30,000 blocks left.  :(  I wish they had built-in support for higher GB cards without having to format it a certain way and trick the hardware.  I've heard it can lead to losing data.  So, unless there's some way to work around that, I'll just have to delete stuff when I'm not playing it.  Not a big deal, but when SD memory is as cheap as it is, I could just have everything on there, all the time.

I'm just grateful the memory situation the 3DS has is way more flexible than the Vita's. I still believe the proprietary memory card that the Vita has is one of the main reasons it doesn't sell well. I will never understand why Sony doesn't get with the times and just adapt the SD memory card as it is the industry standard.

I won't ever get close to using 32GB.

 

Even if I did, I wouldn't need that many games, demos, pictures, etc on my console at the same time. 

 

It's not an issue for the 3DS imo.

The main ones i want to try to get are attack of the tokyo monsters, tanks vs bugs, and ikachan even though i have the free PC version for 1.99 why not right?

picked up the following, some double dip either with having either physical or digital elsewhere but still neat!

arc style soccer3d
swords & soldiers 3d
Sweet memories black jack
project x zone
ikachan
cave story


How is arc style soccer. The dearth of sports games on the 3ds has me considering it.

wondering the same. The trailer makes it look god awful but it has many positive reviews. The players move so slowly and there doesn't seem to be any physics system in place for the ball...it seems like the ball just"sticks" to the nearest player.

graphically, it looks like the artist ate a bunch of white and green pixels then shat them out in 3d.

still, I can't wrap my head around the 4.5/5 user rating and 120+ positive reviews.

The only people that will play the game for an hour and then do the rating on the eShop are those who enjoy it, so that whole system favors good reviews over bad ones.

ok, I have not spent much time on it and have not done tournament, only exhibition but   well...  I think the trailer is true to the gameplay.

 

the ball stick to the player, you move the player, button to pass/kick/steal etc.  maybe you can hook the ball etc, I have not figure that out (haven't read manual if there is one).

 

it's sort of like the old arcade type sports game. (no physics) . think it would be kick of fun to pass the time, but there is no modern gameplay to speak of so far...    seem like there is some character/team management element that may be fun but I have not play the tournament, only enhibition where you can chose between 4-5 teams.   

 

not too worry about it for $5, but if you are looking for soccer, you will probably be disappointed, even at that price.

It seems like a few posters haven't heard of Cave Story and therefore might not realize the original PC version can be had for free at http://www.cavestory...nloads_game.php . There's no gameplay differences between all versions but retail versions have updated graphics and music and some have an extra area (I think Cave Story 3D is the exception, iirc it doesn't have the sky temple).

 

So for those on the fence for this amazing platform adventure game, try the original. If you like it, buy it (or if you're a PC gamer maybe pick it up on steam).

 

Edit: Actually here's a list of all the different releases and differences right on their site. Convenient!

It did, around the time Diablo came out, I ended up upgrading to a 1 gig HD for that beast, it still runs too. Run old DOS games on it.

Touche. Speaking of upgrading for Diablo I remember getting more RAM for Diablo II. Ran so much smoother afterwards :D I kept that PC around to play old Win 95/98 games too. I played Resident Evil 2 on it actually. It was awesome.

It's a shame the 3DS version doesn't have the upgraded graphics like the Wiiware/PC version. Oh well. Never played any version of this game anyway, might pick it up while it's on sale. Getting a 3DS Xl and a 32GB card so feel like I should download a few games besides virtual console. Only picked up The Starship Damrey so far.

The credit itself can now be joined under a single Nintendo ID for one WiiU and one 3DS.
