Default Cave Story coming out on Wiiware tommorow in NA (also, a way to win a copy)

I don't know if anyone is anticipating Cave Story's release in the US on Wiware Monday like I am, but Nicalis is giving out free copies of it as you'll find out here. If you have a Wii, you really need to play the game, especially if you've not played the PC version, though it has a bunch of new modes as well as the remixed music and higher res artwork, so I feel it's worth it either way.

That's why I'm mentioning it here since I love the freaking game. If you haven't heard, it's a great little indie action adventure game that many have compared to games like Metroid (with the looks and music to match...it's somewhere between a NES and SNES game). You play as a boy who wakes up in a cave with no memory of who he is or what he's even doing there...the answers and more will be revealed to you as you blast through a bunch of enemies (with awesome boss battles) and explore your way through the floating island you find yourself on.

Trying to avoid spoilers is hard. Anyway, here's this video too (you can find tons of gameplay video of the PC version on Youtube as well...this one uses footage of the PC version):



I'm probably preaching to the choir with all of you, but I want to get as many people playing this game as I can. :P For anyone wanting to check out the PC version, you can find an easy download of it here on this fansite. It was translated by Aeon Genesis, they did some great work. I have to thank Gideon Zhi and ShihTzu for this one, since without them I have a feeling this game would not have had a chance to become as well known to some of us in the English speaking world as it has.

It's out now, and very awesome. If you have a Wii and you're reading this website, you have no excuses at all not to go buy it.

So many cool wii ware games these days. I needed to use an SD card to fit them all on my wii. Maybe I'll get this when I get paid.

Cave Story is worth hooking your Wii up for. NO excuses.

Eh, I may see about giving it a go after the HL series then.

I'm not even too sure how many points I have left. I may not be able to afford it, haha.

It's worth the $12 to be sure. I know how you feel though....I have so many games to play right now, heh. I count Half Life among them actually. Thanks to Steam sales, I accumulated quite a backlog while my computer was nigh incapable of playing games without crashing. Then I have several games on the Wii I want to play through as well, then Red Steel 2 has just come out...

It's kind of a nice problem though. lol I will definitely say it's a damn good time to own a Wii. This year is turning out to be a hell of a year.

Metroid: Other M!!

I am too excited to even worry that the gameplay may or may not work out.

Looking forward to that too...I recently saw a leaked video of what was evidently an intro cinematic...it was like a love letter to those of us who remember Super Metroid.

Then there's Mario Galaxy 2 coming out, and I've heard there's a possibility of Zelda Wii this year too, though I'm not absolutely sure on that one. Sin and Punishment 2 is coming out as well. Hell, even Endless Ocean 2 is surprisingly good. I haven't had a ton of experience with the first but it already seems like the second is way better (much more to do, to the point where it even keeps a 'quest book' for you so you don't forget everything).
