I'm someone who loved the idea and execution of the Bit.Trip. Runner games but I just knew I would get way too frustrated and end up hating the game. I'm someone who hates bad checkpointing more than almost anything and while I'm not saying the original is that at all, I knew the style wouldn't mesh.
With the second game I was excited and again applauded the game's quality and effort but coverage at the time still left me with teh conclusion I wouldn't enjoy it. Recently when they played it on a live show I saw mention of an easy mode (which I don't know when that was implimented) and I'm curious, how easy is it in comparison? I've having a hard time finding concrete comparisons between easy and normal and want to know what it is that's included. Does it just throw in a second checkpoint or does it slow down the game or both?
With this and hearing that Pid had a rework and easy difficulty mode put in I'm starting to reconsider some games I skipped on because of their difficulty.
