I've heard some things from sources and videos about certain games in the Bit.Trip series, but I never got around to trying one of the games on WiiWare. Honestly, it was a hard sell to download one of the games by itself to me, at least without some kind of playable demo, so when a complete collection was released last week, I took a shot with it.
Some of the games are neat to play, like Runner, which is a platform game that forces itself forward with your running avatar. It's pretty basic, but hard to master when you're trying to collect all the gold in each stage. Memorizing some of the longer stages is difficult, too.
... porn when you immediately recognize who the nurse is in Black Dynamite. Just saying.
So I come home from work, see the mail man walking around, and he sees me. I grab the mail, put it inside without looking, and head back outside to take something off my car. The mail man sees me again as he walks inside his truck, which happens to be parked across from my car. He drives away. I go inside to check the mail and notice one of them was a pink slip saying I didn't receive a package because I wasn't there to sign it.
Now I either have to drive to the post office to pick it up or have it redelivered. Thanks, mail man, you lazy bastard. :D
I'm going to bed.
So today I was looking through the System 16 site for some research on what game ran on what hardware and such.... and I got sidetracked. Ended up looking at hardware from other companies and seeing what games ran on them.
The following discoveries blew my mind:
-Namco made a Counter Strike arcade game.
-Konami released a fucking Lethal Enforcers 3.
-There's a Sega game called Giant Tetris involving the use of GINORMOUS joysticks. That seems to be the whole gimmick.
-Taito came out with a new Elevator Action title in 2009. It's a light gun game. -__-
-They also released a new Darius called Dariusburst. It's widescreen like the old games and features more fish.
