PAX '09: Bit.Trip Void impressions


When you ask a normal person on the street what they think of when you say "Rhythm Game", 9 times out of 10 they will probably say Rock Band or Guitar Hero. Not enough people know that the Rhythm Game can be something other than plastic guitars and drums. This is why I love Gaijin Games' Bit.Trip series, they take the simple Rhythm Game concept and turn it completely upside down on it's head.

I play the first two games in the series all the time, I would probably have to say that they are some of my favourite games of this generation so far, so when I found out that the new game, Bit.Trip Void was going to be playable at PAX, I was fucking ecstatic.

Right when the doors opened on Friday, I sprinted over to the Nintendo booth to get my hands on with the game (well, right after Scribblenauts lul), and the WiiWare guy was happy to show me my way around the demo.

As far as I know, the version playable only had one finished level, but I don't think anyone is absolutely positive of this because no one actually finished the whole level. Trust me, this game is tricky.

I kept finding myself going back to the WiiWare booth multiple times a day just to play the game. It's seriously so fun and addictive, I totally could have been the first one to beat it, if the Nintendo people didn't make me go to the back of the line every time I died >:( I still feel resent towards those cheeky bastards.
