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?

    MrWhite Could you imagine back when arena shooters like Q3A were very popular, and the cunts introduced pay to win bollocks like EA, 2k, Activision et al are doing? Imagine what that would have done. (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite meanwhile on the other end, some kid who just bought the game is playing as Wigan, but they're playing like Real Madrid and giving your superstars a tanking. Time to dip into your pocket to buy packs (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite Online play is so heavily scripted, your team inexplicably feels like a bunch of fat pub players in a sunday league side, and you're supposed to be in control of world class athletes (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite I mean, if you look at Fifa online, I've been saying for years that thing is a fix and my mates looked at me like I was mental. (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite @GriftGFX: But you know it will in some shape or form. It hurts the game by default just by being there in the same way microtransactions and all that other shite does. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX My foremost concern is the quality of game design and user experience. I don't actually care about the exploitation of whales much if it doesn't hurt the game. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX So then top players stop wearing their loot so that they don't get matched with noobs? Sounds like a bad plan. Hopefully anything that implements this stuff leans heavily on ELO first. (3 Hours ago)
