Is Cave Story+ worth buying?

Everyone keeps telling me to just dock my Switch and play on LAN. I get that it is much more reliable, but I play my Switch exclusively as a handheld. I don't have a place to play it as a console, and if I did, it means I would have to share it with my aggressive brother. Well, thanks anyway. Apparently you can still get the rage quitter error message even if your wifi disconnects in earnest, so I guess I'm not getting this.

@Reginald I live up in the mountains where wifi by default is kinda crap and every time I payed Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, or ARMs online it was always a super smooth lag free experience and I never got disconnected.

@Samus7Killer Cave Story+ in general is worth it. But I'm not sure if paying the full price for the Switch version is, especially considering its lack of certain features (the original graphics are only available in an update). I would personally just get it off Steam as it is so much cheaper there and you essentially get the same complete package.

The Steam version's challenge mode is bugged though, and cannot be completed. They never fixed that. I don't know if the Switch version is the same or not.

Depends. The original freeware game was one of my favourite games back in the day. The + version on steam is half the price and has more features at the moment, so if you've got a PC (and maybe a gamepad for it) go get that. Hell, if you want to play the game without spending a cent, google for the original freeware version and go play that.

If you really, really want it on Switch (like I did, by the by), well... retro graphics are on the way, as is local co-op (big selling point for me). If you can get the physical version, the instruction booklet is really neat, too.

Version comparisons aside, Cave Story is still a brilliant, timeless game with some of the tightest, strongest gameplay around that plays perfectly on the Switch, has tons of replay value, multiple endings, a few tearjerking moments and a boatload of charm.

Personally, I'd say it's totally worth it.

@Samus7Killer The physical version may hold its value in the future (in the UK its actually dropped in price at 365games to £25). Therefore it may be worth it in that case. Also comes with mini soundtrack CD and full colour manual.

Digitally however, I don't really think so.

Great game but everything has a value and its digital price is excessive.

I ended up picking up the physical version at BB for $25.
It came with the extras except the neat little keychain. So I'm a little sad but assuming that was for preordering. Idk
Game is like a Metroid+Contra game. Kinda like Axiom Verge but cute.

Anybody got any early thoughts on Overcooked?

It's my birthday in just over week, so a good excuse to treat myself to some new games! I've been looking at a few indie titles as a way to further bulk out my Switch library & Overcooked really stood out to me when I saw it in the Nindie Showcase - would be really interested to hear some of your impressions!

@NaviAndMii If you're drunk and are with at least four people it's pretty fun.

@NaviAndMii It helps if at least one of four people is incompetent. Make sure you aim for three stars on every stage, chaos assured.

@Octane Nice! Are the controls simple enough for a complete novice to pick-up? From the gameplay I've seen, it looks like its just an action button (pick up, chop etc) and move with the stick? Maybe a dash button too? ..anything more complex than that?

@NaviAndMii Nope, that's it. Three buttons; dash, pick up and a generic action button. And of course the control stick.

You can even use a single controller (at least on PS4) and have two people use it at the same time. One controls their character using the left side, the other one uses the right side. I imagine that's going to be a lot easier on the Switch though.

NaviAndMii

@Octane Oh nice, thanks for that! I've not been able to find any Switch-specific reviews for the game yet - but, unless I hear that somethings gone majorly wrong with the port, I think it seems like a pretty safe choice

Want to play 3 player co-op game but can't decide between Minecraft or Overcooked. I've never played any of them. The players are my son (4, beaten Lego City and snipperclips co-op with me), wife (casual gamer, but has beaten borderlands co-op with me), and me of course(typical gamer).

Just unsure which is better for the casual crowd.

@UNSOLUTEDSALT Minecraft is quite a deep and complex game - I have no doubt that your son would be able to pick it up (I have two young nieces who really seemed to have mastered it - kind of mind blowing to see them handle the complex mechanics with such ease!) ..but it's the kind of game that you'd all have to really invest some time in to.

I always think that the best couch co-op games for the truly casual crowd are ones that are simple, fun, frantic and easy to pick up - on the Switch, the ones that really seem to stand out to me are Snipperclips, Death Squared and Overcooked...all of them seem to have quite a simple premise, with quite basic controls that are really easy to pick up - meaning that anyone can just jump right in and get to the fun straight away

I bought Namco Museum and Qbics Paint. I like both of them. Namco Museum is slightly overpriced maybe but it is very enjoyable I think it was worth it. I hope that Sega will release a collection too.

Hi there guys. Not sure if anyone is using this at the moment but I'm at a bit of a tricky situation. I was planning on getting splatoon 2. And my first thought was that I wanted more joycons because I wanted to play with friends. But the more I talk to people the more they say that I should get the pro controller . what do you guys think?

Hey guys. I've been looking for a fun multiplayer game to play with my siblings (I have 7 siblings, ranging from 16 to 2) and I was wondering what I should get. We recently got a Switch, and all we have is Splatoon 2 right now (And don't get me wrong Splatoon 2 is a great game) and I want a really fun game I can play with some of my siblings. We have overcooked on PS4, and we have the original MK8, so I don't think we would get the DX version right now. Does anyone have suggestions?

Mario Kart 8 or Snipperclips.
I like Ultra Street fighter 2 a lot too but the fairness of its price is debatable I guess. The game itself is absolutely worth its price, the work Capcom did to release it is not.
