For those that haven't tried, this game also has an awesome 2-player coop mode (split screen). If you have enough room and an extra chair (as well as 2 gamepads) it's really fun.

Holy ****, this game has sold over 130,000 copies... that'd be almost 2 million dollars in sales!

http://ve3d.ign.com/articles/news/41...al-Copies-Sold

Quote:
In the last Top Secret podcast we had all the members guess how many units we would sell in one week across all 3 skus. While I have to admit, throwing out a number like 100,000 seemed pretty overzealous after seeing how hard digital titles are to sell, I still hoped we could reach that lofty goal. Boy, did I miss the mark.

7 days -- over 130,000 units.

Holy fiddlesticks!

That may not seem impressive compared to package titles that sell in the millions but compared to other digital titles that is a friggin JUGGERNAUT!

And while, it's great to have my first title be not only a critically acclaimed one but also a financial success, there is a bigger picture at play here that we need to look at. Consumers voted with their dollars. They basically have sent the message loud and clear:

We are tired of meta-emulated crap.
We want the titles of yesteryear to be paid the proper respect.
We want them done right.
And if the price is right, we'll buy.

Basically, we have set a standard in digital gaming. The bar has been raised and you have let developers around the world know that if they invest the time, money, and heart into making (and remaking) some great games, you will support that initiative.

That's the way it should be. I can't wait to see what the future has in store...

Code? You need to go to the communications building to open the second door, if that's what you mean.

Just played the first couple of levels and WOW!!! Insane blast from the past.. the physics of the swinging and the grappling characteristics are SOOO perfectly done as far as being true to the original. I swear its like riding a bike! You never forget. After the training area I was 5 starring all the virtual simulations..well... almost all of them.. some are HARD.

do you really need sli? why not use just one card? just wondering because i'm pulling 350-400 fps on the specs below at 19x12. I can't image your rig is that far off.

No idea I must have some sort of bug problem then because I am getting stuttering regardless of what I try. I have no idea wtf is going on. I even tried a different set of drivers. I am simply confused...

I think you are right, I am one of those guys who just can't go back to that style of game. I get 'claustrophobic', so to speak, when I go back to a sidescrollers. The lack of freedom of movement bothers me.

They remind me of when I was young and happy, but I'm still horny. So I love the game.

I still love a good 2D game... side-scroller... what-have-you. Castle Crashers just came out and it's AWESOME. There's a lot of personality that comes off in that style that just doesn't in 3D, with the right developer.
