Wait, how much were the posters? And could you link a photo?

I remember it, but maybe showing it in this post will remind people to buy buy buy it.

It's gonna go on sale a little late for me (4AM), but maybe I'll be able to catch one in the morning. :)

Yes, Spelunky is absolutely essential.

I also had a massive backlog before I jumped in but 60 hours later I'm glad I did. And the more I play of it, the more I think it's the best game ever made. It looks, sounds and feels great; it rewards skill, strategy, patience and perseverance, which together with the randomly generated levels makes for a highly repayable game.

I've been playing it almost daily for the past few weeks and I can't see myself stopping any time soon. Once I beat Hell I'll probably slow down but the daily challenges will keep me coming back for more.

You know, what you write there sounds really enticing... but all I see when I watch videos is a little dude carrying around stuff. I guess it's really something one has to play for oneself, because just based upon what's happening on screen, I can't see the fascination.

It's 7 bucks. So what the hell! Against my better judgment, I'll invest in a future with Spelunky in it. Hopefully it will be better for it. I'll hold you accountable personally, if it's not! If it is, let me thank you right now. Friend.

heh. That's like describing Super Mario Bros as "a little dude jumping over little mushrooms and stuff."

Though, glad you're giving it a shot. For $7, even if you don't end up liking it, you'll better understand a great game. Just give it time, and it will likely eventually click with you. Have fun! :)

Does he possibly offer the hottest new soccer matches for free online? Can I buy Ryan Gosling's Drive jacket from him?

@bigjeffrey: To me, these comparisons don't really do the game much of a service. Sure they look good, but they really just remind me that MGS V is a last gen game being shined up for newer consoles.

Still, just because it doesn't have eye-popping "next gen" graphics doesn't mean the game can't be amazing in every other way. Here's hoping. :)

Um....no? The Fox Engine was made with Next Gen in mind. I think its way more logical that they are porting down the next gen versions and scaling them.

Sorry, maybe instead "remind me" should have been "remind me of my impression". MGS V still looks like a cross-gen title to me, and these recent visual comparisons reinforce that. As you said, the game's engine is intended to be a next gen engine, but from what I've seen, the game itself still looks like a more shiny version of a current-gen game. That isn't necessarily bad, but I haven't gotten the impression that this is a "full" next gen title. Again, that doesn't mean the game can't still be great though.

Oh wow, I never realized how close this game is to coming out. Anyway, I dunno, I can never usually tell a huge difference in these comparison videos. PS4 version kinda just looked like a clearer version of the other ones imo.

Yeah, the PS4 does seem like the premier platform. I wasn't blown away by the differences, but it certainly seems the sharpest.

If only there was also a PC release... ha.

@golguin: Yeah, giving Earthquake to replace Tail Whip was a big stroke of luck. TwitchPlaysPokemon brought down the twitch chat servers, and then after a while, a few people started getting back in. So, only a small amount of people were able to get commands through. Then it was just a matter of inputing each step, and after hours and hours of struggle, it took a few minutes to do.

Boom. Red just beat rival Blue in the ghost tower.

And Blue is repeatedly walking into Snorlax.

In case anyone missed it, here's the Giovanni fight:

Also, @golguin, shout outs for the awesomeness on Blue yesterday! A really great time. :)

I think it's gross to announce your new studio in the same release that you mention all the people you're firing.

I'm all for Ken starting a new studio but he doesn't need to announce it in the same breath as this. Poorly done.

Completely agree.

It almost comes off as "I'm bored now. I will chose the 15 that will their jobs, the rest of you can fuck off"

I doubt it was really Ken Levine's idea; seems like more of a 2K move that he went along with.

It was more likely:

"Ken, you're the only one we really care about at Irrational; the rest are pretty disposable to us. So, stay on here, grab a few of your favorites, and release a statement to draw attention away from our big layoff."
