    I played the demo now just waiting for Gamestop to open so I can get my copy unlocked. I love this game and can’t wait to keep playing. Although it would have been cool if online co-op was available. I also love the fact that it’s a game where you can’t die The Cave won’t let you so to those who enjoy games like that then this game is recommended it also has great humor! Try and see what you think!

      So no online co op just local? or no co op at all

      • Dustin

        I know there is at least local co-op. I’m not sure of online co-op though.

    • Dustin

      Why are you waiting for Gamestop to open? To buy MS points? You can get them instantly online.

        I preordered the game so I went there today to pick up the redeem code.

        • Dustin

          I didn’t know you could buy XBLA games from Gamestop.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=516951649 Justin Stewart

            yeah, Basically it’s microsoft points that you can use towards the game you preordered. OR if you change your mind you can just keep the 1200 msps in your virtual bank.

      From what the demo said, The Cave wont let you die, at least not yet. Makes me think that there’s a point in the game where you CAN die.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=516951649 Justin Stewart

        I think you can’t because I watched a video from Game Informer of them playing and they said you can’t die since you played the demo you see what happens when you try to kill the characters The Cave saves them.

    A co-op 3 player game designed to be played by 1 person. This is good game design nowadays? Tried it but waiting for a sale.

    • silentazure

      Have you ever heard of The Lost Vikings kid?

      • fsdfg dsfds

        Awesome game!

      • ElektroDragon

        Yeah, I just never played it. And thanks for the compliment on my age, I turn THIRTY SIX soon. *eyeroll*

          Well grow up and stop playing videogames then. You do know they’re toys, don’t you? For children?

          (I jest, of course. I should make that clear, this IS the internet after all.)

          • ElektroDragon

            Well it did not stop my ex-father in law from calling me a teenager because I happened to own a Dreamcast at 25. But then his house got flooded by Sandy, so I had the last laugh.

        hey you can’t talk to ElektroDragon like that. he comments on here all the time so his comments carry more weight than yours do. you say kid like some old guy from the 20s.

        • http://twitter.com/SamboTaylor Sam Taylor

          Yeah, cause the crazy guy constantly yelling in the corner has a more worthwhile opinion than others…

  • Thânia Santos

    2013 start with few, but nice arcade games!

  • Russell Gorall

    Judging by the Metacritic, I would just wait two months for a price slash.

    Not exactly a smart move tying yourself into DLC for average games less than a year away from the next Xbox.

    • http://twitter.com/NAVARiN BENNiJiN

      Who says they won’t work on the next one? There are plenty of reasons not to pick up XBLA games and DLC (#saynoto1200) but this isn’t one of them.

      Dunno about the rest of you but I’m in no rush to join the next generation anyway, there be plenty of gems to be plundered from this one.

      • TheRequiem95

        I hope they still work on the next system. I’ve seriously cut back on my XBLA purchases recently for just that reason.

        • kingcrusher

          I have to agree. I’ve got over 200 arcade titles and TONS of downloaded content. I just really hope they make all that stuff transfer over or I’m gonna cry.

  • Xbudz

    This with IllumiRoom please.

    This is one of the best arcade games in last few year, right now I´m playing it for 4th time and still is great as hell :) I love this one.
