    So much for those who were hoping this would be a GwG title.

      That would be cool but I assure you, this game is damn worth the asking price.

        I didn’t say it wasn’t. I was merely mentioning the speculation that it would be included due to it’s staggered release for the consoles.

      Those people should stop listening to stupid rumors. There was never any chance that this was going to be free on day one. Why would anyone do that? No one would ever buy the game if they did that. They might as well just take all the money they spent paying people to port this and to microsoft to allow them to put it on here and burn it.

        I don’t think that it was ever a “rumor” anyplace. I think that many looked at the staggered release between platforms and tried to read into it to much with a mix of wishful thinking thrown in. With GwG titles like Guacamelee, iDARB, Pool Nation FX and Chariot going into the program on day one, it is not unheard of for an indie title (even one with a established fan base, ie iDARB) to release with the GwG program. I don’t think it would have hurt Shovel Knight to much to to have released GwG since MS got the last of the releases. And if you think that a game in the GwG program doesn’t give devs and publishers money, you need to think again. Personally, I think that there is far to much expectation for indie titles to launch in the GwG program.

        I could have sworn that Guacamelee and etc. were on there before they were free, but looking into it further, apparently you are right and they were free immediately. My mistake and my apologies.

      This game is too good to be a GWG title.

        Too good? I never speculated it would be a GwG title, but lets be honest “too good” is a bit much. Shovel Knight is a good game, but GwG has had better offered on it.

    A backlog means I don’t have to jump on this right away, but the hype and love for this game means that I’ll grab it at some point! The style of game always seems weird to me using a joy/thumbstick as opposed to a d-pad.

    This needs a demo. It looks just as hard as Rogue Legacy, and I just can’t play this super arcadey 8-bit gameplay. Way too difficult. Yeah I was a gamer back then, but I was playing RPGs on computers.

        Oh yeah, but things like reflexes and response time start to degrade as you get into your late 30s, I think. Someone needs to do a study on that with respects to gaming.

      I wouldn’t worry about that. As far as I’ve read the difficulty is not like you would expect from a game that pays homage to the 8-bit era.

      These kind of games typically require you to play through again and again to master the section you’re trying to beat. Shovel Knight almost feels too easy in that aspect.

      If you die, you can get your gold, which you can use to be revived at the last checkpoint. All you need to do is get back to the same screen you died on.

      There are a few reviews out for this game and it’s said that it’s not as hard as one would expect.

    Hmm, good game, great even, but still 14,99? You know MS, I’d actually say to a developer that launches on your platform last to just accept the fact that their game will come with a launch discount.
