    A few more for 20$ or less.

    Spelunky. It's been around for a while and is Free like the original cave story. Randomly generated platform/adventure levels. Get the treasure and get out.

    Dust: An Elysian Tale. It's coming out on PC next month, keep an eye out for it. Its one man's passion project like cave story but with a little more action than adventure mixed in with its platforming.

    Fez. Just released on PC today; Fez is a puzzle/platformer with devilish depth and great presentation.

    Braid. Puzzle platformer which uses time mechanics to twist your mind.

    There are also some Cave Story/Metroid esque games currently in the pipe on kickstarter. You might want to check out A.N.N.E. and Chasm.

    I made a new character a few months ago and ran through the game with the sole intention of building a Shrike character (from the Hyperion series), based upon the Kirk encounters/drops. It wasn't all that difficult, but when I got both my claws (yes, dual claws) to +14 and +15, and picked up his last spike armor piece near the daughter of chaos...I was pumped.

    I've just recently discovered the joy of Monster Hunter. I know I'm late to this party, but holy shit, this game grabs me in a way that only Dark Souls was able to. I started MH Ultimate for the Wiiu and just picked up the 3DS version to play on the go. Fucking awesome game. Shit story line, but rewarding as fuck. The DS version syncs up with the Wiiu, so the saves get transfered back and forth. Amazing feature considering the nature of the game. I havent checked out the multiplayer, but I imagine that is fun as hell hunting in a party.

    The idea of a fee to pay for use of a used game is not inherently a bad thing... If they find the sweet spot that makes sense, and used game retailers adjust their pricing strategy in a way that adjusts for this (cause let's face it... the return that outlets like Gamestop get on used game sales is ridiculous) it could be a reasonable way to ensure that the developers still get some compensation for the secondary market that minimally impacts the end user.

    The used game model of the disc/DVD is dead anyways. Cloud based. Game prices will drop in a few months anyways. They are just putting the nail in game stops coffin. I'm good with it.

    then they better give us a 3TB HDD option or something because that thing is gonna fill up fast if you need to install every game.

    The cloud server idea gets to me, I just don't agree with not having a physical copy of a game I've purchased on a console. I spent $60, give me a stupid booklet to read through and inserts for your shitty console exclusive magazine.

    Now the used game fee? That's strange to me, because what if the fee is always $30-$40? I like used games as they usually drop under $20 after a year of release. I would find myself less inclined to explore more games, which causes less developers to make new concept games over franchises. I feel strongly too that most franchises suck in video games, usually the next version is only a slight slight upgrade that becomes a new time sink. CoD?

    Blu-ray? Bout fucking time. This fee idea sounds about as good a choice as HD-DVD over blu -ray.

    Hopefully microsoft will revamp their release after this initial reaction.

    500gb is a joke.

    How that's something that would upset people is beyond me.

    From what I've seen, there hasn't been any indication that it's going to be limited to proprietary external hard drives (like replacing the hard drive on the 360). So it's a step forward from what they had offered previously.

    How is it a step forward? The system is 500GB (which was fine when all their games came on dvds). They use dual-layer blu rays which hold 50GB. They force you to install every game now. You can't replace the internal hard drive with a larger hard drive even though it would be incredibly easy to do so as the PS3 has demonstrated. But if you need more storage then you can use an external hdd. It's not the cost that is an issue, it's just a fucking inconvenience when something like this could be so easily prevented.
