Yeah I got that on the Wii U the other day. Paid for it though.

Looks great but I'm yet to play it.

Yeah I had a look for it on the eshop but I couldn't find it :(

Bought it on Steam though :awe:

Just played the first level and it's ace. 360 pad sucks though so I'm going to play the rest on the VT4 cab :D

I'm kind of disappointed I bought and didn't play Guacamelee instead of buying and not playing Shovel Knight.

When it does arrive on Wii U I'll be sure to buy and not play it then. Maybe I'll write a review of the icon.

I'm on the verge of picking it up. It looks pretty fun, just wish I could try a demo of it first...
Besides, I need more reasons to use my Pro Controller :shifty:

At first I wasn't interested in this at all, because I'm a grumpy git etc, but after some persuation I gave it a shot. I've only beaten the first level but I seriously wasn't expecting such a polished game. Get it even if you're unsure. You won't regret it.

Loveing this game atm. You guys should also check out Freedom Planet, took them 3 years to make from a kickstarter, runs at 60fps and handles like a dream.
