This should be awesome!

Great to see this back, at least if only for this one video. I don't really have an interest in Binding of Isaac and I missed that Spelunky music, might have to fire it up again, but I am sure I'd be as rusty as Patrick looked haha.

Whoooooo!

The OG Spelunky mines music sounds so familiar.... like Daft Punk - Harder Better Faster Stronger?

Thanks. For doing this. I have been addicted to OG Spelunky for a while now. It will be very interesting to see how you adjust after having watched you play NEW* Spelunky.

I am so glad to see this back, if only for a short time.

Patrick shares my sentiments on MMOs, I'm usually playing too many other games to devote so much time to one single game.

Posted by Sergotron

Nice. Gets me in the mood to go back to it again.

The music in OG Spelunky is so good.

My vote for the next series is still Dungeons of Dredmor. It might not be fast paced, but I think it would still make for a perfect fit.

@liquidsnakegfer9: I'm kind of the opposite. I always have a pile of games to play but never get around to finishing any of them as I too often just get sucked into a single game (Dark Souls, WoW, Spelunky, Dota, etc) for hundreds of hours.

Huh, I wonder why they removed crawling from new Spelunky. The ability to just slide down on to a ledge would be extremely helpful.

@draxyle: Uh that's still in new Spelunky?

Oh this is just fantastic. A great treat. Thanks Patrick. Tried Binding of Patrick but couldn't get into it. Spelunky though, never stop!

like this feature on the site, Spelunky is fascinating.

Good job Patrick.

Note: I sugest, Shiren the Wanderer is a good game to check

I do hope that Spelunky doesn't stick around too long. I'm kind of sick of seeing it.

Edit: apparently it wasn't a turrican track, I guess I'll have to dig deeper

Man, only the journal? I thought speedlunky would be the difficult thing. At least, it is for me

Posted by chinery

I highly recommend people don't try to get all the achievements... filling the journal wasn't too hard. Trying to complete the game without picking up any gold has absolutely ruined the game for me.

Posted by Y2Ken

Yesss! Love me some OG Spelunky; that caves music is wonderful.

I remember accidentally finishing the first level with like 200 gold. I was like, "hmm... this woludn't be too difficult." I was wrong. Super annoying. Dying is one thing, but "losing" due to picking up flying coins and gems? Not fun at all.

Oh dammit, you're right. I don't know how I played so much Spelunky without realizing you could crawl. I don't think Scoops realized it either.

Posted by Mento

A well-deserved admonishment.

Holy crap, the music for original spelunky is FANTASTIC.

Edited by johnLongview

@draxyle: I'm pretty sure that Scoops knew about crawling:

I played soooo many hours of OG Spelunky. Then the remake came. Then I played sooooo many hours on the 360. Then it came to the PC. Then everyone started to play. Then I stopped playing and started to watch people play instead. Man, so much spelunking! Love it! (I also played insanely many hours of The binding of isaac and FTL, my kind of games I guess) :)
