    Bit Trip Beat is freaking impossible once you get about 10 minutes in, holy shit.

    (Which I could have some traditional controls, that would help.)

    Are you talking about the first stage? If so, I look forward to your reaction to levels 2 and 3.

    I think the only way they could improve on the controls is by making an actual paddle controller.

    NyxQuest is awesome. As people have said there is not much variation in graphics or enemies, but what is there is very well executed, and there are many moments that are beautiful. It's another game that would only work well on Wii or PC, where you similtaneously control your character and a pointer that interacts with the environment. You have to work out some tricky maneuvers that are satisfying to accomplish.

    I would say the main gimmick of the game thus far is the ability to move blocks with the pointer. They use realistic physics and at times it has vaguely reminded me of Boom Blox (which it isn't quite, the blocks often can't be moved very far, it's just reminiscent).

    The game is doled out pretty evenly across the stages, I'm up to 5 or 6 of 12 and each one has had something slightly new. It's not a rollercoaster of amazing like World of Goo but it too has a knack for not wearing out its welcome. Smart introduction of new elements followed by more difficult incarnations. And at this point I've fought one boss and a miniboss.

    Hidden stuff is well hidden most of the time but not unfairly so, which is the right sort to make you feel good about finding it. I don't know if it unlocks anything yet.

    Music is very pretty and atmospheric.

    One complaint is that revive points are a bit far apart, so you may have to replay large sections of the level over again. Explorative types will find enough health along the way to keep them going though. Overall I am only mildly annoyed by this, because after all I do expect to be challenged a little and don't mind the game lasting a little longer.

    All in all it reminds me of good homebrew games like Knytt or An Untitled Story, where the focus is just on enjoying yourself in an atmospheric environment.

    And level 3 is the worst. I have a feeling that there's no way I'll clear it.

    I think Bit.Trip Core is easier, even though I had assumed I'd have a harder time with it. Then again, I haven't beaten stage 2 in that game yet either.

    Stage 2 in Core is ridiculously difficult. Stage 3 is actually easier. It took me well over two dozen tries to beat the 2nd stage in Core, while it only took me two tries to beat the 3rd stage.

    Stage 3 in Beat is also ridiculously difficult.

    In other news, the translation for Cave Story WiiWare will be truer to the original game than the fan-translated game on PC. And it should be coming very soon. Link

    "Truer to the original" almost always makes me roll my eyes, in gaming and beyond. Does changing "Grass Town" to "Bushlands" or changing "Please respond!" to "Answer back!" really affect one's experience? It's nice to know they're in touch with Pixel and have his approval, though.

    You can always download the PC version and play it. Can't beat the price! If you're like me, though, you'd probably rather just wait for the WiiWare version.

    La Mulana is a game I've not played yet, but I figure waiting for the WiiWare version is better than playing the PC version.

    Yea, I figure he's put enough work into it I'd rather give him some money for the game. Plus why ruin and spoil the story for myself ahead of time...so yea, I'm waiting for WiiWare before I experience Cave Story. It can't show up soon enough.

    My brother and I downloaded and tried out Bit Trip Beat the first night it came out.

    The two of us beat the whole thing on our first try...


    It was tough but we're both shmup fans and it's a tad easier with 2 people. I found it noticeably harder playing Solo, but I still didn't have too much trouble beating it (I beat it the second time through after having played it the night before with my brother).



    I just didn't think it was that tough. It tapped into my shmup skills and I felt that it was easier to play if you listen to the beat, though. Also I thought the controls were perfect for the game, especially since they 'feel' more like the old twisty paddle controllers.

    I didn't bother with Japanese releases when I did the thread and I don't think anyone else did either. I think just having a link to the Japanese releases wiki would be sufficient.

    Okay, Flipnote Studio is really charming. Classic Nintendo: Simple, unthreatening, intuitive. A five-minute tutorial shows you all of the basic stuff you need, and then it points you to "Advanced Tools" to learn more. I'm trying to post my ghetto 8-frame waving animation, and because it's all sketchy my terrible drawing skills don't matter! :)

    EDIT: Okay, my animation should show up here eventually. I wonder if there's an easy way to make them into inline GIFs.

    You didn't look at your profile? That infraction doesn't expire until in two months.

    The Wii shop channel being completely seperate for the different regions can be extremely annoying. I'd like to get Bit.Trip Core, but it's not out in Europe. I guess it's nice that we got Majora's Mask first, though.

    Nintendo Download

    Fun Keeps Popping Up, From Slot Cars to Rock Stars, Sudoku to Ninjutsu

    Choosing a game to download from the Wii™ Shop Channel or Nintendo DSi Shop™ can be a little like taking a personality test. Do you like mystery and surprises? A new WiiWare™ game offers elements of magic and pop-up excitement. Are you an extrovert who craves the spotlight? Try a Nintendo DSiWare™ title that turns players into rock stars. Do you crave competition and fierce action? Choose from a new car racing game or a bona fide martial-arts classic. Or maybe you’re more of a brainiac? Check out the sudoku-themed installment in the popular Brain Age™ series. This week’s new downloadable games offer something for players of any disposition.

Instead of simply rolling dice to move along the map, you’ll use cards (which can help or hinder progress) and coins (useful for buying more cards, but don’t forget about your Coin Bonus at the end of the game). Spaces on the map play an important role in the game’s outcome, and your computer-controlled opponents exhibit different personalities and behavior. Occasionally, the mysterious Book of Magick will be opened, causing an event that may change according to how you play. This mixture of exciting game play and charming, artistic atmosphere give Pop-Up Pursuit high replay value and unique depth—even if its characters are flat.

In this sequel to the arcade favorite Shinobi, traverse through various districts – from the bamboo forests of Japan to the streets of New York City – and fight incoming enemies by throwing Shurikens, performing special ninjutsu moves and slashing a katana sword.

    Revenge of Shinobi is pretty cool though.

    NEW YORK, August 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Gameloft, a leading developer and publisher of downloadable video games, today announced a multi-year licensing agreement with Interplay to develop, distribute and publish Earthworm Jim, a popular run and gun platform video game featuring an earthworm who dresses up in a Super Suit to fight evil. The game will make its way to mobile, WiiWare(TM), PlayStation Network, with an exclusive one month run on Xbox Live(R) Arcade.

    "We are delighted to partner with Interplay to bring Earthworm Jim to multiple downloadable platforms," said Gonzague de Vallois, senior vice president, Gameloft. "The game, with its humorous and edgy style, is a great fit for today's gamer who craves a fully immersive experience that is fun and easily accessible. We look forward to delivering a fantastic game."

    "Earthworm Jim resonates with millions of people worldwide and we are excited to have one of the best developers in the industry create this game for a new audience," said Herve Caen, CEO, Interplay. "Gameloft's creativity coupled with its innate knack for innovative games, makes us 100% confident that the result will be nothing short of stellar."

    Initially released in 1994, Earthworm Jim's games garnered such a cult following that the character's popularity took him far beyond video games into an animated TV series, Toys and Comic books. Earthworm Jim centers around an ordinary earthworm who engages in normal worm activities- eating dirt, crawling and fleeing from hungry birds- that is until he comes across a high tech indestructible space suit. Jim takes refuge in the space suit while fleeing from hungry birds. The suit's powerful atomic particles cause him to grow and obtain newfound powers.

    The game will be available in the last quarter of 2009. For the latest information on the game, follow Gameloft on our Twitter feed: http://www.twitter.com/Gameloft

    Found this on Gaf today...it's interesting.

    It sounds to me that Interplay is finally ready to make a new Earthworm Jim game that is due to head to all downloadable fronts for new games.

    I'll reserve Judgement as new games in old series can be awesome (Mega Man 9) or horrible (Adventure Island WiiWare).

    I thought there was already an Earthworm Jim sequel that sucked.

    I wonder if Doug Tennapel will be involved. Probably not.

    Man now I want the Neverhood ported to Wii.
