Talkback

OblivionJune 24, 2011

Holy shit which one do I take...now I know how Rebecca Black felt.

BlackNMild2k1June 24, 2011

Fun fun fun...

SilverQuilavaJune 24, 2011

3d visuals, or 120 new challenges? ....aahhh I've never been so torn between two games!

OblivionJune 24, 2011

For me, it's more about portability versus online leaderboards.

UltimatePartyBearJune 24, 2011

I sucked at Bit.Trip Beat so I never bought any of the others.  Now I'm tempted by the 3DS version.  Maybe touch screen controls will work better for me than jittery tilt controls?  I don't think more difficulty is going to be for me.  :-\

CericJune 25, 2011

Oh my...


I want the portability but I don't know about touch controls for the games if the originals didn't have it.  I haven't played the originals I figure I just get the 3DS collection but know that I now their is a Wii version as well I'm truly befuddled on which to get.  I sort of think this is a bad call by the publishers.

OblivionJune 25, 2011

Why?

Mop it upJune 25, 2011

I've played the demos of them all, and the only one I like is Runner. Void and Fate were okay, and I didn't like the other games. Still, I'm tempted to get this just for Runner, though I don't anticipate a low price on it. All six games on WiiWare would cost $42, and since this has bonus content I can see them charging $50 for it.

I'm not sure I want to play Bit.Trip on the train, it requires so much concentration/is infuriating enough as it is.
