yes! it's portable, has more soundtracks (ridiculon and famitracks) and also controls better with the joycons/pro controller/gamecube controller (i use gamecube controller lol)It seems as though Cave Story's release on the switch has brought in some new features, such as new soundtracks and levels, but I wanna know whether $30 is worth buying the game when I already have the freeware version and the steam version.
It's not interactive at this point right? Very cool, but you can only follow along and play your own separate instance while seeing where the other player(s) are in the world. And chat.2 player? Just get CSE2O and play online with people all over the world
That's not the same thing with the moving graphical filters, slight fluid physics, etc. It could be coded eventually though. (Not to mention the lighting changes.) Geobox probably already supports something similar.Water physics? again, get CSE2E and make all the water textures transparent.
True. But, we wouldn't even have some of these soundtracks without these releases. And I say more choices the merrier.2 extra soundtracks? Get original CS with Clownacy's mod loader and the soundtracks you want to hear.
If you have a Switch, then why not try the best looking commercial version to date. It also gets the word out when other Switch users see you playing it.Portability?
It's a small price to pay for the amount of advertising and solidifying it has received due to repeated decent releases. For example, I wonder how many people nowadays know of Iji. Loved that indie game as much as Cave Story. But, no commercial releases leave it to becoming lost to only the indie enthusiasts who happen upon it.Getting this for 30 DOLLARS is just BLOODY FUCKING STUPID, especially since there are some alternatives that are on par, or even better than what the switch version has to offer. Most of which are free. Worst part would be having to control the game with those bloody small joycons.
Clownacy's mod loader allows you to use most of the CS remixes. (I say most because it doesn't have Dynamiteman.EXE's soundtrack. Or the sega genesis soundtrack, but that soundtrack sucks.) It allows you to use all the soundtracks in the switch version, alongside the DM Dokuro OST, and Vince64's SNES soundtrack. 6 alternate soundtracks for modloader, 4 for switch.True. But, we wouldn't even have some of these soundtracks without these releases. And I say more choices the merrier.
It is available for download by Dynamite Man.EXE himself, in the CS+ ogg format, too! You can just download that and manually configure the ogg player for it and hand those settings to Clownacy, if you'd like.I say most because it doesn't have Dynamiteman.EXE's soundtrack.
