    Cave Story is out on Wiiware today. You must all get it! Do it now!

    In case you don't know, Cave Story was originally a freeware indy pc game, made by a Japanese guy named Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya. It took him 5 years to make, and was first released in 2004. It is considered one of the top freeware games.

    The Wiiware version has redone graphics and music, with the option to switch either one back to the original. There are also new areas and items. Upcoming DLC will add additional game modes, like Time Attack and Boss Rush.

    I've got the pc version (which remains freeware), and can say with certainty, that this game is very much worth 1200 points. Even if you already have the original yourself, buy it and show support to Pixel. He deserves it.

    A friend of mine was talking about this game to me and I had see the video on it from this past week. It looks good but for 12$ wow thats a bit of a increase from the useal 10 bone on Wiiware.

    I just found out that the extra modes aren't dlc anymore. You get them off the bat.

    Well, it is the publisher, Nicalis' first game. It's not a big company. $12 is still totally worth it.

    My buddy picked this up yesterday, and was very disappointed in the numerous dialogue changes, especially to Balrog. So keep that in mind, I guess.

    I can't believe people are getting upset about that. If Pixel is fine with it, why should anyone else not be? Besides, "OH YEAAAAAAH!" is hilarious.

    Oh so thats why its 2$ more then. Makes sense I guess considering they are hoping for mass DL.
