Yea I did too, played for an hour then uninstalled and said I need to get some money in my paypal because that game is awesome. I want to wait until it's 10 though I think because I can see myself blowing through the game in a sitting or two.

Is the fish apple thing a meme yet? If not when will it become one because that thing is awesome.

Ditto, but I didn't find all of the music pages and I'm looking forward to New Game+. Also there seems to be a lot of neat, free updates coming down the line.

I'm on the first half of the tower, pretty difficult. Should be done on my next sit down with it. Quite excellent.

I've played a few levels so far and really enjoy it. This is coming from someone that really doesn't play many platform games. Totally worth it. Got the PC version. Planning on getting it on 3DD too unless I see news of a vita version.

Shovel Knight >>>>>>>>>> Fez + Bastion + Cave Story + all other "indies".

I didn't care to beat any of those. I know I'm picky with indie games, but Shovel Knight was perfection. Seriously might be my GOTY.

oh that's GOOD to know. Seriously I didn't like any of those indie games, and since we have so similar taste in games Xeogred I'm even more pumped for this now :D.

God damn it release it in Europe already. I'm thinking of buying it both on gog and 3DS :lol:

Got it on Wii U and have been having a blast. I know there's a lot of indie 'retro loveletters' but I'll be damned if this isn't one of if not THE best I've played.

This is something you could truly imagine playing as a kid 20 years ago on the NES.

It looks perfect.
It plays perfect.
It feels perfect.
It sounds perfect.

PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't stop listening to the final boss theme, I kid you not dude, it was like my kid self reaching the end of FFIV the first time or something. Classic Final Fantasy boss theme feels for me. It'll blow your mind.
