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.

    GriftGFX Well I guess it rests on the BR beta for COD. It could turn some heads. (10 minutes ago)

    droezelke I'm pretty sure if Spiderman or Tomb Raider would have released this month (they are both gold status), it would have been a good launch. Why didn't they though? (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke So the conclusion is: the BR mode is not a selling point :-) (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm super skeptical of COD BR too though.. there are so many hurdles there. COD is not designed as a large scale shooter. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think the hero shooter stuff is its weakest point. They should just forget about it. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I feel like COD has an identity crisis. It doesn't know what it wants to be because it wants to be everything. (7 Hours ago)
