Regarding if Shovel Knight could be done on the NES, the programmer broke down what would and wouldn't work in their game if it were on an NES: http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/DavidDAngelo/20140625/219383/Breaking_the_NES_for_Shovel_Knight.php

This game seems similar in that 90% of it would work but they made it play better given that the technical limits are no longer there.

Trigger warning: Fixed-width font not actually fixed-width

And this is really NES-gamey and not hipster-pixelart so I approve of Jet Gunner. If this was on the NES the issue would have been cartridge size and sprites.

I really hope Dan ctually does get around to watching Band of Brothers because I feel the same way about it than Drew. I tend to watch it once (sometimes twice) a year and I still enjoy it immensely to this day. I watched The Pacific for the first time last year despite the fact I got the Blu-Ray when it came out and while it is well done and tells an incredibly different story, I didn't enjoy the characters and the sense of 'comradery' that there was in Band of Brothers.

I know this comment has pretty much nothing to do with the actual game itself but just had to give me thoughts on when Dan said he has never seen the show.

Oh my god that amazing Clash at Demonhead reference with the power up that gives you the man following you.

the explosions are ridiculous, that would cause so much slow down if it was a true emulation

The Drew/Dan combo is my new favorite.

Dan in the danger zone. Not a fan of the aspect ratio, Old school games are nice but this might be a bit too much.

Between this, Shovel Knight and that game that's basically Super Metroid, I'm pretty happy with where the indie games scene is headed

I like Jason. He's a cool dude.

The 'η' Dan refers to as an 'n' is the Greek letter 'Eta'.

The part of me that took six years of ancient Greek in school cringed, but was also pleased when Dan recognized them as Greek letters earlier in the quick look.

I picked this up a while ago on Desura, and I'm super glad it made it to Steam. Such a great game! It plays super, super well and is intense the whole way through. I'm really loving indie games at the moment!

It seems Dan is one of those guys who buys movies despite never seeing them...I will never understand people who do that.

This game most closely resembles the NES game Shatterhand, a game I only discovered recently. Pretty cool to see an homage to it here.

Yeah, a universally critically acclaimed miniseries about a subject he's interested in and might have gotten on a sale or for a deal. That's CRAZY!!1

@darro: Why did you put 'comradery' in quotes?

I really like the design choice of having sprites be all one color; it gives memories of forgotten "gems" like DynoWarz.

Also "The game is called Jet Gunner" is one of my new top ten Quick Look moments.

I had to google what cheese curds look like:

Seems accurate! Also apparently a Minnesota thing.

So because Jason hasn't been onscreen much, he kind of didn't feel like part of the crew to me so far.

Problem solved.

Is it just me, or does Jason talk a bit like Drew?

What I'm saying is that Video Guys all talk alike.

Edit: Oh, crap. It IS Drew. Apologies for my Video Guy-ism.

I preferred The Pacific to Band of Brothers personally, but they're both excellent. Drew if you haven't seen The Pacific you should definitely check it out.

Yea, this looks even more dedicated than Shovel Knight to NES hardware. I forgot all about constant sprite flickering.

YES, I was trying to remember the game with the greek letter power ups that add a robot that follows you. This game is clearly doing an homage to it.

I'm a little tired of all the nes looking games coming out at the moment. I know a game might be great even though I just don't give two shits about it's visual style, but I'm at the point now where a game has to get really great, and I mean great, reviews for me to check it out if it got a nes look.

Sometimes I wonder if developers limit themselves because they think that's what people want. I want diversity. Developers please go crazy with the look of your games. Please.
