    having played the game through to the end, i realize that hand cramps are actually a serious flaw. not with the game, but with the goddamn human anatomy. also, i died about 4000 times but at least 800 of those don't count because they were from the I Wanna Be The Guy warp zone. diabolical...

    I was a meh person before but after the soundtrack, everyone saying it's good and the tid bit of Teh Internets I grabbed it today. Oh the discounted price also helped!^^

    Picked this up after playing the demo to get it before they jack up the price. It's clear to me that the designers absolutely LOVE video games. Between the rock-solid gameplay, the recreation of 8-bit NES and 4-bit Game Boy environments (with authentic glitches and music!) and loving tributes to NES classics like Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden that allow this love to shine through, this game has the total package. Also, I have not laughed that hard at a game's cutscenes since Giants: Citizen Kabuto.

    Great review Hank. I've played this game a bunch these past few days and agree pretty much 100% with what you said. It's strangely satisfying, never cheap, and it really will make your hands hurt. Very, very fun and just a great deal.

    This may be one of the best damn games I have ever purchased on XBLA. Thanks for the awesome review, Hank!

    A buddy of mine showed me this game when it was still on Newgrounds, loved it then and loving it now.

    I'm pretty sure the hardest game I will ever love will be demon's souls...but yeah this might get close =)

  • Doctalen - October 21, 2010 1:13 a.m.

    I played the demo earlier today and it was awesome. It had some rather challenging levels, and I'm somewhat scared to see what it will conjure for later levels. I'll probably buy it in a week or two. Damn, why is everyone releasing so many awesome games so close together!

    Might get this when it comes to Wii. This is off topic, but where's your guys' new vegas review?

    you know it is good when a bad thing about the game is "hand cramps from playing too much.
  • vigeoman - October 20, 2010 8:49 p.m.

  • abbottfrizzell - October 20, 2010 8:40 p.m.

    psh I'm glad I didn't buy that shitty Halo Reach and saved my money for this. lol (my one "it's better than Halo" joke) I'll probably get this sometime or another but right now I have Vanquish, Fable 3, Black Ops AND VENTURE BROTHERS SEASON 4.. to much to do emblemata cotinge

    Screw anyone who thinks games are hard. They are supposed to be. Your being introduced to a new world with new ideas and new rules. You gotta learn through trial and error. Just like babies, you gotta fall a bunch to stand up. And when you finally overcome that challenge, its incredibly rewarding.
  • austinthebookworm - October 20, 2010 8:30 p.m.

    Does the deal also apply to WiiWare? I'm really psyched for this game.
  • StrayGator - October 20, 2010 8:27 p.m.

    Relax, guys, I believe your computer can run it just fine. Just hold another month.
  • hardcore_gamer1990 - October 20, 2010 8:22 p.m.

    Can I just point out another flaw - NOT ON THE PS3! I'm genuinely considering buying a 360 just to download and play this game without giving nintendo any more money.
