No but I really want to try LostWInds. It looks really good. Cave Story too. I'm not into Mega Man, but possibly Runner as well. I haven't played any of the BIT.TRIP games other than the demo of FATE, which I didn't like.
Oh and NyxQuest. Man I wish Nintendo had demos of these games up so I could try them. Boo!
About shake-to-jump in Fluidity... it's not like you need pixel perfect precision, it works well enough and even if you lose a bit of water, no big deal. That is your beef right, not that you just don't want to shake the controller?
@Secret_Tunnel I might take the bait on Runner and buy it, but the two most highly recommended WiiWare titles, World Of Goo and Fluidity, I didn't care for much so I'm a little hesitant.
@anon_mastermind No, it is because I don't want to shake the controller. It's not accurate and the 2-button is sitting there completely unused that could have easily been used to jump. It makes basic platforming a chore and it's poor game design that goes back to 1st generation Wii shovel-ware of mapping a basic button function to waggle. It's stupid, lazy, and completely pointless and I refuse to play it just as much out of principle as out of frustration. I hate that crap.
@Jargon To me, having a basic button function mapped to waggle doesn't fit any game's design. Especially when you have unused buttons on the controller that you could use that would work infinitely better.
@WrathOfSamus777 RUNNER and FATE are two completely different games. In general the BIT.TRIP series is more just a loose label, like the PixelJunk series or Art Style or whatever, although they do all have similar graphics and sounds and some vague connecting storyline. Gameplaywise though the only two that play alike are the first and last, BEAT and FLUX.
Anyway wasn't trying to put you on the spot, if Fluidity isn't doing it for you it isn't doing it for you. It's easily one of my favorite downloadable games though, on any platform.
I'll say this though, about "having unused buttons on the controller" by the end of the game this is not so true anymore. You get a LOT of power-ups in this game.
@Zero I've heard nothing but good things about Runner and I heard it's very addicting. Radio Free Nintendo has championed that game like no one's business so I may have to try it. They described it in pretty full detail so I'm pretty sure I know what I'll be getting. And I know there won't be any waggle-jumping grrrr. Hopefully, Nintendo will eventually put up some more Club Nintendo games for download too so we'll see.
I may give Fluidity another shot down the road. It's not like I can trade it in or anything. I'm not a rage-gamer at all so when a game starts making me want to put my fist through the TV after repeated attempts, something isn't right.
I'm now re-playing NSMB on DS and all is right with the world. :)
If you're going to check out RUNNER you may want to just get the whole collection on Wii (COMPLETE) which has all 6 BIT.TRIP games plus additional content for all of them and leaderboards. FATE was one of my least favorite to be honest, some of the others are better. And I have found the collection for as low as $20 already, probably could find it even cheaper if you keep an eye out.
