Not sure if I'll pick this up or not. RUNNER was kind of the definitive BIT.TRIP game for me. I have FATE and VOID, and I've played BEAT. They just don't do it for me like RUNNER did.



HipsterDashie said:


FATE and VOID are much less rhythm-centric compared to RUNNER. I would at least give BEAT or FLUX a go at some point. ;D

This is what I'm going to buy a 3DS for.

I have all six from the wii shop. I found RUNNER and FLUX to be the best of the bunch. Ideal to have on my 3DS too!

I never did get around to playing a BIT.TRIP game now I have no excuse with a physical cart coming out, on my to check list.



CapedGodot said:

@1 Don't judge the series until you've played Core. It the most rhythm-based (more so than Runner, even). Runner is my second favorite, though.



Samholy said:

this looks weird. never had a chance to try something like this.

im not too much into beat games. i got bored of elite beat agents and guitar hero, i fear this one will do the same :-/



Capt_N said:

@VincentV: Maybe I will too.

Actually, no the sale is over today. This will just be meaning that if I choose to get all the Bit.Trip games on my 3DS, I will go to cart instead. Probably the same for Wii.
