Yeah, Gamepad is totally essential to games like this for me. I did give the keyboard a try just to see how it would handle, and it seemed to work well enough. But I definately always use gamepads for things like platforming, racing...  and... other stuff..?

It has gamepad support, and even then, the movement isn't analog.

If people followed your advice, this game would not exist.

um, what's wrong with a keyboard for this kind of game?  lol guys we're not talking about analog sticks or triggers here, we're talking about a directional pad.  my keyboard has directional keys and a spacebar, so I think I'm good.  and this game started out on the PC and worked just fine then.  it will be fine guys.

I have an Xbox 360 gamepad for games that aren't FPS games. I wouldn't think keyboard would be good for this type of game.

I'm at 95%, only 15 levels left to A+ and a few bandages. I'm slowly getting sick of it :F

I'm wondering how the controls will work on a keyboard. It might get a little awkward if you have to use shift or another key as the run button.
 
Regardless, it's a great game. I've died over 8k times and I keep coming back for more.

I tried the XBLA trial again today, got me even more psyced for the PC version.

Super Meat Boy is incredible, I really should go back and finish the last 80 or so levels I have left, but all of them make me want to kill myself...

Wow it comes out tomorrow, I can't wait! 
 
@LordAndrew:  but this seems to be the thing with SMB, you will scream at it and hate it, but you can't stop playing it and you always apologize to it later.

I look forward to playing it for an hour, getting angry, and vowing never to play it again.

Me too, I gonna 100% this game even if it's the last thing I do.

Just seeing a lack of the play button on my Library for that game is driving me mad.  Thankfully this madness will end tomorrow or so, so that a different kind of madness can begin.

It is an awesome game, i bought it and played solid for 3 days, now i occasionally go back to see if i can beat some of the harder levels.

If you pre-order today you get it for $10. It will be $15 tomorrow.

It looks like a hell of a game.

Just know that if you do this the controls are much slower than the actual game. On 360 at least. I've played the 360 version and couldn't stand the newgrounds one.

Can't wait for this game to come out on Steam.  Hearing all the things Brad said about the game makes me jump with glee!  Been waiting for a challenging platformer.
