    Your Stupidest Deaths in Cave Story?

    There's times I enter a half-awake state playing games where everything's either oddly clear or somewhat muted, so either I do eerily well or fail spectacularly It's almost tradition to run facefirst into the spikes in the first cave, and let's be honest, we've all jumped into the spikes in...

    Your Stupidest Deaths in Cave Story?

    Took me a few tries on my first run through the game Once you know where to stand (far right upper platform in front of where the Core comes from) and know which weapons to use (Sword, Polar Star, Super Missiles) it becomes a much easier boss Meanwhile Monster X has consistently continued to...

    Your Stupidest Deaths in Cave Story?

    Yeah, I can get through the first two areas easily enough I just lack the hand-eye coordination for everything else

    Your Stupidest Deaths in Cave Story?

    I've gotten to the point where I can clear Wind Fortress well enough, but I still don't have enough skill to keep track of the utter insanity that is the Sanctuary Always fun to run out of booster while panicking and trying not to get hit Probably for the best I did my run through Cave Story...

    Did Pixel ever draw Quote?

    Just goes to show I haven't done a lot of exploring of the main site Really should fix that Inconceivable~

    Did Pixel ever draw Quote?

    The only gripe I'd have about said beta art is that it's not that common to find I know a few of the older OrgPlayers have some Quote art in them, but those are rather small in size

    Why didn't Quote steal the key from Jenka?

    Anything that can hurt Quote can and will be brutally rendered into their base components through excessive amounts of firepower Consider me slightly disappointed that you can't destroy spikes, because that'd make the Sanctuary so much easier...

    Your Stupidest Deaths in Cave Story?

    Been trying my hand at the various challenges that come with Cave Story+, and my biggest reason for dying repeatedly is impatience, and the Booster never having enough boost when I need it - especially in the three challenges where it plays a vital role (Sanctuary, Nemesis, and Wind Fortress)...

    So, How did YOU find out about Cave Story?

    I think the most danger they'd be in is from the Butes flying wildly around, but they'd probably splatter like bugs on a windshield, so... "Come to the Floating Island, a beautiful paradise filled with giant frogs, bats, an evil eldritch piece of headwear, giant bugs, an iron-masked fish, and...

    So, How did YOU find out about Cave Story?

    Curly mentioned that negative energy had vanished once you kill Ballos, so... Definitely one of the odder aspects of the game, but as has been mentioned before, floating islands are a dime a dozen in fiction...

    The Littles

    Clearly the Littles are merely the shortest giants who ever lived

    The Littles

    Quote and Curly are scout robots, so their smaller size makes sense, so they can sneak around and surprise enemies Mimiga are sapient/sentient animals, and humans are humans The Littles are just that: little The island is home to many things, ranging from a giant cat (Monster X), living...

    So, How did YOU find out about Cave Story?

    High enough to make getting to it difficult and falling off of it fatal Low enough that the exterior isn't frozen solid and humans don't require oxygen tanks or thick clothing when outside Also above most clouds, if the exterior backgrounds are anything to go by, which muddies that question...

    who wrote the note by the map?

    Whomever found it, I guess To whom it may concern... There's a lot of silly questions that really don't need answers, like: How and why do enemies drop energy and ammo for Quote's weapons? Why do weapons need energy to function better? How does Quote throw King's Sword and get it back without...

    So, How did YOU find out about Cave Story?

    I'm now imagining Quote and Curly taking a leisurely stroll through Hell and enjoying the sights, arrows and rocks bouncing off their reinforced umbrellas They defeat Ballos and the island skids to a halt an inch from crushing someone's house or something

    So, How did YOU find out about Cave Story?

    I call it such because you follow Sue to get it; as for legitimately beating Hell, extremely unlikely - I can get through the first two rooms well enough, but then things get difficult and my health gets eaten alive

    What stopped King from killing the pignons?

    The 'shrooms weren't initially a problem and it's said that they'd only recently appeared, hence why you can't go into the graveyard until events conspire to draw Jack and King away from that. Maybe it's usually the Gravekeeper's job to cull them if they get out of hand?

    who wrote the note by the map?

    Probably Arthur, who seemed to have explored a fair part of the island before his death

    So, How did YOU find out about Cave Story?

    Was on a road trip with my family and we spent the night with a cousin, and he was playing it to pass the time, so I sat with him and watched him play through the Labyrinth; I fell in love with the artstyle, music, and gameplay and when I got back home, I hunted it down and played through it...

    Good point I do not know why my mind leaped to Zelda first Probably because she doesn't get kidnapped as often

    The Doctor is quite allergic to having missiles and swords shoved down his throat. And Quote can also fly, depending on his equipment.
