As this game is set to release next week, I figured we might as well start discussion now. Who else is excited? Will it be better than the first game? WHO KNOWS?!
Also, in a strange show of complete honesty, Gaijin just posted about the build differences. It kind of sounds like the Wii U version might be the best version? Unless you have a good controller for your PC? The PS3 version is missing some stuff and the Xbox 360 version has the worst load times, apparently.
I wish the leaderboards were separated by difficulty. Either that or playing on easy gets you a x 1 score. On medium x 3 and on hard x 5, to keep things fair. Leaderboards should never punish you for playing on harder difficulties.
Also, how cool would it have been if you could unlock the ability to transform the graphics into the style of the first game?
I have a lot of mixed emotions about this game. On paper, it sounds like the perfect sequel to Runner but in the quest of giving variable scores for leaderboard purposes they messed up some thing along the way.
As many of our Wii U players know, we asked the Runner2 Miiverse community to work together and create a cool story about CommanderVideo over last weekend. And as they likely also know, we promised to read the story on camera! Here's the first-ever installment of Miiverse Storytime!:
I got this on the sale (along with Steamworld Dig). Unlike that 3DS gem, though, I'm not too crazy about Runner 2 just yet. I'm still early on right now (mostly done with the first world), but a few of the mechanics don't really sit right to me. I like kicking stuff, but I'm not crazy about the loop-de-loop. And I like how everything's tied to the music, but the music itself feels very manufactured--just amelodic notes to a set beat, for the most part. What do you guys think…am I a crazy bun?
