BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien Review (Nintendo Wii U eShop) (9.5)  by  

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.

25% off on the Wii U until May 30th.

What does that work out to? Around $3.75 off? So... $11.25ish?

Yes, it's $11.25 until May 30.

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!:

That's scary.

I was checking my Wii U Daily Log and it claims that I played over 16 hours of RUNNER2 on May 1st. No friggen way is that possible. Must be a glitch.

...in other news, I'm now ranked 100th place worldwide for the Wii U version. And I'm only 4th out of NWers (at least, those on my friends list.)

We rule!

I'm still working at my scores, so I should just keep climbing and climbing...

In other news, this still isn't out in Australia.

Gaijin just released a free web-based endless RUNNER game

It's basically based off of the more simple "retro" courses you can find in the RUNNER games. Pretty fun stuff.

I'm #9 on the leaderboards at the moment...

I think I may cave and make a UK eShop account just to get this game. Getting incredibly bummed that I have yet to play this.
Posted: 07/04/13, 05:40:43

Fun! I'm so used to Wii controls that it's kind of hard to play. Cool little marketing move for them.

Maybe it will be playable on Negative World soon...?

Action figures! And not even at total ripoff prices!

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?

The later music is better! There are more mechanics added in later on too, so I'm interested to see what you think of those.

Commander Video figures are on sale for six bucks, by the way. They're clearing them out. I'll pick one up.

I recently got back into playing Runner2. It is weekend, I finished it in Easy, got about half done on Medium, and knocked out a few hards.

I now have all 40 treasures and am trying to get all the Retro levels. I have about half. I've decided I'm going to stop caring about scoring and getting the Perferct+.

That's the way to do it. It's a shame because the dancing mechanic is so genius, but the cannon is too frustrating.
