Cave Story

A potentially great new game is coming to WiiWare. Cave Story. It's a 2D side-scrolling adventure. The graphics are classic and beautiful, and they talked about using sound synthesis instead of samples. It looks right up my alley.

looks nice so far. i'm not sure what is meant by "sound synthesis". is there analog hardware in there or something?

geez. i've completely neglected the WiiWare platform since i got XBL. i know i've missed a TON of cool stuff, though.

i'll just be happy if i can play Bob's Game some day.

No, there is no analogue equipment in any video game consoles. Video games emulate oscillators to synthesize sound. Samples are more natural sounding (because you can record real instruments), but I have a soft spot for synthesizers.
