It’s Drew Toal’s turn in the second Digest chair as he swoops in—as much as Drew Toal ever swoops—to talk about Bit.Trip Runner 2. For me, Runner 2 was an interesting counterpoint to yesterday’s featured Digest game, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Runner 2 has a rather different relationship with the player, treating you as another member of a duet rather than Metal Gear’s on-again, off-again control scheme. Runner 2’s isn’t inherently better, but between these two games, I did find the “duet” approach more invigorating.
Our snack today is Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs, which are like Reese’s Pieces with gigantism. They remind me of peanut butter M&M’s, which I don’t care for. Is there anyone out there who prefers peanut butter M&M’s to Reese’s Pieces? If so, speak up in the comments so I can scratch my head in wonder at the impossibility of accounting for taste.
