Our Switch videos of Cave Story +

If you own a Switch, you must have seen that the Nintendo eShop gets new content from the indie scene on a regular basis. Cave Story + may not be new to you if you've owned a DS, a 3DS, a Wii or a PC, but it has been released recently on Nintendo's new handheld and we have captured the first 40 minutes or so of the game. In case you have never heard of this title, it is a platform-adventure game in which your weapons can level up provided you collect the yellow triangles the enemies drop when you take them down. Much like in a shoot them up, you can gain more and more firepower (up to level 3), but every time you lose health, your weapon level gauge also diminishes, which means your equipped weapon can eventually level down. With power-ups to increase your health or the number of missiles you can carry, exploration is rewarded, which comes in handy when having to deal with the regular boss encounters. An excellent title if you don't mind its retro gaming style.


What's up?

    Seth Also it doesn't help the fact how zoomed out is the camera. You barely see shit most of the time. Deleted it after 4 hours. -_- (47 minutes ago)

    Seth @Nietzsche: Below is the most monotonous game i have played in last years.The game want to be DS and survival game at the same time and fails at both of these things. (48 minutes ago)

    jmd749 @MrWhite: It's good free marketting for the game though. (4 Hours ago)

    MrWhite Basically, it was a hatchet job of a review, awarding it a 3/10. They realised they fucked up and pulled it sharpish. Damage was done, though. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite of course, he was talking bollocks. Had he played it for more than 5 minutes, or spent more than 2 looking in the options for the settings, he could have sorted everything out, but he's clearly inept (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Basically what Korn said, only he went further in saying you couldn't strafe, jump properly (or at all) and the pace of the game was gimped in favour of the VR mode. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @asdfg: Some idiot freelancer they hired. Never heard of him in my puff, and seemed like he's not even an avid gamer, nevermind someone attuned to VR (4 Hours ago)
