I remember my first time getting a first............

Looks neat. Kind of reminds me of Quack for some reason.

I really don't like how it looks. Also, feels really weird paying for a freeware game. Works A-OK as it is now.

I do love some Spelunky. Prettier graphics and achievements is more than a good enough excuse for me to actually pay something for it.

FINALLY! Fuck, I thought this would never be released.

I've been playing Spelunky using the comfy couch method, but I'm really excited for this console version.

The only parts which bug me are the main character (particularly his nose) and the choice of music.

Been watching this for a long time. Day 1 purchase.

Never heard of it before. Like the style though.

Finally! So two XBLA games in July for me... and afterwards it will collect dust again...

Posted by TheMartino

I will happy pay $15 for this.

Posted by Sumdian

@The_Nubster: The co-op is why I'll be buying it.

Posted by Praise_the_sun

This looks INCREDIBLE. I am so excited.

Between this, THPSHD, and Dust: An Elysian Tale, this is going to be a great couple of months for XBLA.

I really loved the original release of this. It's a shame that they got rid of the nice looking pixel art though =/

Posted by Village_Guy

Ha! I'd never forgotten about Spelunky, and I'm so happy it's finally coming out!

Posted by Mr_JPeps

Been waiting for so long for this. CANT WAIT!!!!

This game looks awesome!!!

Posted by shodan2020

Great! I was wondering when Spelunky was coming out.

Edited by Razputin

@DennisTM: That would be 2011 with Dungeons of Dredmor, The Binding of Isaac and other stuffs.

Posted by TwoLines

I've played a lot of Spelunky. So I'm pretty stoked.

Posted by Goblin

Looks neat... but does it have 6 player online splitscreen like Spelunker HD? :P

Posted by vinsanityv22

You guys care about this, yet completely ignored the PSN release of Spelunker HD? Lame. If I were a troll, I'd be shouting, "Xbox 360 bias!" right now.

Edited by Chemin

This looks rad as shit. Too bad it's for XBLA. No friends there...

Posted by gexecuter

I'm so buying this, i don't give fuck if it's 15 bucks i'm so in.

Posted by YoungBuck

Looks refreshing.

Posted by MeatSim

Nothing is more American then Spelunky.

Posted by Zero_

I've played this at the IGF. It's kind of fun, but the music is so great.

Posted by Kratch

This looks awesome, plus, it's coming out on my birthday!

Posted by prestonhedges

You guys better do an effin' Quick Look.

Edited by RetroVirus

Big fan of this on the PC, but I think I prefer that art syle to the newer one.

Posted by TheAwesomer

My body is ready

Posted by RedFive

Game of the Year 2012. Can't wait!

Posted by GeneralBison

I never forgot about it, I've been waiting for news ever since it was announced. Now that it's being released on my birthday I'm thrilled, best gift ever.

Posted by DSale

So it's like a bomberman platformer? Why hasn't anyone done this before?

Except for the obvious similarity in the name, I think that these games are completely different.

On a scale of 1-10, I'd rate that jump to conclusion about an 8.

Well this game is obviously inspired by the original Spelunker along with La-Mulana and Cave Story, among other games. And no, people did not ignore that game (which is pretty different) it is just a 2+ year old game, where as this version is being released in five days. Though I believe Giant Bomb never covered that game sadly, because it is a gem.

This is a timed 360 exclusive anyway and will be on PC eventually.
