Cave Story looks well beyond most 8bit games with its original graphics, nevermind the redone stuff for the WiiWare version. Awesome retro type pixel art isn't necessarily 8bit people... MegaMan 9 and 10 are 8bit:

No comparison... Gameplay is more complex than most as well. I dunno why people make NES comparisons and not SNES at least, though it looks better than most of Super Metroid as well (more the environments than the characters which are smaller in Cave Story I guess, but really art style wins here, Super Metroid is crude by comparison), while your character is also more agile having a more modern feel to his movements (not quite Metal Slug agility, but close enough I guess) than such games. Why's it cool to say 8bit, not 16+?

I'm just still amazed that one guy made Cave Story in five years. He did everything, design, art, programming, and even the music!

If that isn't video game as art than I don't know what is.

That's art! I think it's a master piece, like Super Mario 3, Super Metroid, and Street Fighter II.

I am with you, gaming is as much an art form as any movie. When I finished GoW3 and watched the making of, seeing all the work that went into it, to me that was more impressive than watching a making of a movie. Just like in movies there are all types of games, big budget ones, smaller indie kinds. Gaming is an art form, anyone that doesn't agree to that is some old fart that doesn't know better.

Yeah. Totally.

But I think Cave Story is a little bit more special because it's done by one guy. It's his vision which he could call his own. Which is why it's so impressive to me.

I'm gonig to pass.  I think I'll get enough out of the original DS-Korg. Plus I don;t have a DSi yet.

If you've already got it and don't have a dsi then not much point. Like I said it makes the process a bit more streamlined, but without dsi doesn't do much else. If you're really serious about it what you'd do is get the dsi, korg+ and connect it with your DS. That would leave you with 6 sytnhs and 3 drum machines! Nyaa

bugsonglass said:

is it based on different korg synths/drum machines or does it just have more features?  i wish they would do DS versions of more of them. those things have become impossible to afford

Based on the same synth. The main feature is basically you get 4 synths and 2 drum machines instead of 2 and 1.

Also, it's just so amazing how a 16 year old game has a more immersive atmosphere than 98% of all the current gen games out today!

SMG 2 started as Galaxy 1.5, but too many unique ideas lead to the start-from-scratch SMG2

"As soon as we completed Super Mario Galaxy, we thought we weren't able to include a lot of the new ideas that we really wanted to.   As soon as the project was over, we started making something that we might call version 1.5. We did things like moving or adding stars to levels that were already available. As we made progress with this 1.5, we realized that there were too many things to fit into a version 1.5. That made us realize we should start from scratch and make Super Mario Galaxy 2. That's how we started working on the game.... Usually we wait until the advent of new hardware, but for this time around, because there were so many ideas we were not able to include in the first volume, we thought we should make a sequel to that." - Shigeru Miyamoto

PS3 + Move will succeed due to better visual experiences than Wii, less embarrassment

"The PlayStation Move is going to allow developers to immerse gamers into a world that simply is not possible on the Wii. The Wii is an impressive console, but it can never deliver lifelike graphics like those found on rival consoles. MadWorld and No More Heroes  are clear examples of how developers, who wish to target the mature audience, must do so at the limitations of the Wii, which typically result in cartoonish style environments. Unfortunately, as gamers we simply are not buying it (figuratively and literally).

I fully enjoyed Ping Pong with the Wii MotionPlus, but there was an additional element of excitement playing nearly the same game on the PlayStation Move. The PS3 version removed the Miis and had richer graphics, and it just felt more mature; it felt like something I wouldn’t be embarrassed playing when my friends come over, which is why my favorite feature of the PlayStation Move has nothing to do with the peripheral itself, but rather the console it is designed for. And that is one of the reasons the PlayStation Move will succeed, because it does evolve motion based gaming – maybe not from a technical perspective, but it certainly allows developers to introduce motion based gaming into environments not capable on the Wii." - Jesse Divnich, VP of Analyst Services at Electronic Entertainment Design and Research
