Was Nicalis a mistake for Pixel?

I might be beating a dead horse here but as I said before I don't really get hyped for new CS ports mostly because I don't feel like paying for mostly the same gameplay, especially not for four times the price of a port I already own.
I mean hey, Nicalis could have possibly looked at SEGA's business model and said: Hey, a lot of people own multiple copies of Sonic 1, why not have our customers do the same with Cave Story?

So, I don't blame you.

Care to explain? When it comes to SEGA's stuff i kinda live under a rock.
So, SEGA likes to re-release and port Sonic the Hedgehog 1 very often. Most people I know of that like Sonic have like 15 different copies of it, all on separate platforms and/or in different Classic SEGA collections.

The only flaw I can see in this is besides when it comes to what specific platform can be considered as bad (Wii port *cough*, eShop port *cough*), there isn't really much of a variation on Cave Story ports. I shouldn't exactly say the Master System/Game Gear ports of Sonic 1 are the same as the Genesis port, but they do differ by a lot. And that case can try comparing to the Mega Man games on the NES/Game Boy, except the Game Boy games are named as Mega Man World 1-5, making them completely different from Mega Man 1-5 (stardroids, anyone?). This whole case is just weird.

I guess that's a fair point. Although, I was only joking when I said that.

That kinda is how I felt about the original after playing the Wii version for so long (well, not the paying part of course)

Well damn, didn't know they were THAT bad. Although, I'm taking it with a grain of salt, because, well it's the internet.
Given everything that I've observed of Tyrone, this barely surprises me. It's more amusing than anything.
