Went into the game knowing for sure I wouldn't buy it since I'm just not as good at platformers as I used to be and I don't tend to have as much patience for crushing difficulty anymore... and I ended up buying it. There is so much charm to the game to draw you in and the package as a whole is quite impressive with an excellent visual style, solid controls, and a meaty experience.

Seeing the mass amount of meatboy clones showing you all your attempts (endless deaths) after beating the level is simply just pure awesome btw.

I spent most of my weekend trying to beat my Super Meat boy.

I tried the demo and got to annoyingly frustrating difficulty even there, so I guess this game isn't for me. :) I really liked Mega Man 10, though only on "Easy" difficulty (and didn't like MM9 because it didn't have that), but I think that's probably enough uber difficult platforming for me for a while.

All free time this weekend was also lost to super meat boy and I still managed to stay up until 1:30 last night playing it.

The demo is a cross sections of levels, so some of the levels should be hard. I am about 90 percent through the light world nothing seems impossible yet and I would not consider myself a great platformer gamer, but this is more of a puzzle game anyway, a very precise puzzle game.

so I didn't think I'd be getting this game, but I was bored and queued up a couple of demos. Ended up saying Fuck it and purchased super meat boy. pretty fun game, sucks when ya die but whatever haha, we'll see how far I get, but at least it's not as frustrating just b/c maybe it's so goofy and because I can start up right again after dying.

Anyway, now I figure since I already spent 800points, I'll go ahead and try to spend another 1600points (makes sense doesn't it lol) to get the additional 800 points back. Thinking a 1200 point game and probably the L4D2 DLC even though I got it free on PC... hmmm

Picked it up after playing the demo. Reminds me of a weird indie game called "I Wanna Be The Boshy" that is played by some German kid on JTV. Difficult as all hell, but rewarding in the end.

I doubt you'll see that. 560 maybe but not 400.

600 is more likely, seems like they did away with the 560 price and replaced it with 600.

I don't like hard games, especially hard 2D platformers.
I didn't even get halfway through N+.
I'm still struggling with New Super Mario Bros Wii.
I beat Super Meat Boy.
Some of the levels are incredibly difficult but doable.
The game entices you to play just one more level.
Then you cannot stop until you beat that level.

My problem was this hoarder took all of them including my one copy as I helped her.

It is called "I wanna be the guy" (free - kayin.pyoko.org/iwbtg/) and it is a pretty challenging platformer indeed - favorite level: the computer is "playing" tetris and you have to avoid all of the blocks, climb up the blocks that have been laid down to get to the exit of that level.

I've been thoroughly enjoying super meat boy as well.

That's from IWBTG? lol I always thought it was just some guy trying to make a artistic and creative video!

Man, I wish I had a X360 to play this. So tempted to buy a X360 just to join in the madness!

What's the chance this thing would come out on the psp? It'd be so FREAKEN SWEET!!!

It will come out on Steam. The PC version should have an exclusive level editor :hot:

"Crazy Ass Game Collector" o.O

How can you be a crazy ass Game Collector without having a 360?!
(Super Meatboy on PSP would be pretty awesome.)

Last night was probably one of the most exhilarating moments i've had gaming in the past few years.

I got hit with the save bug twice in a row on this level (5-11x), so i had to run through it 3 separate times and get the bandage. Needless to say, I got pretty good and by the time i finished it and it saved, I put up a top 50 global time. I was chatting with a friend of mine at the time, and it quickly became apparent to both of us that The Kid was the character we needed to use to get higher on the leaderboards. I put up the #9 score, and shortly after, he tied the #1 time. 7.41 sec. He said to me, if you just get a little closer to the saws you can make up a few ms. My next run I did that exactly, and put up 7.39, putting me at #1 (really #4, but there are 3 0.00 sec times which are either cheaters or glitches on there) I fucking love this game.

True. But it won't have Teh Internets, with its exclusive bonus chapters. And since the level design is kind of the star of Super Meat Boy, I'd frankly rather have more developer-created content than a whole bunch of user-created stuff.

Don't get me wrong: Level editors are a wonderful thing, and I'm all for openness and user-generated fun. But in this case, Teh Internets excites me more.

I'll probably get both. Btw its funny to me that some want developer made levels of Teh Internets rather than levels actually made by Teh Internets :lol:


If i can make bosses then the steam version would be pretty cool

Yeah IWBTB was played by Michael_1985 on JTV. Supposedly the game is a tribute to IWBTG. I truly can't say which is harder though.

I dont know guys

Yes you can. IWBTG is obviously harder. In SMB you can actually see what is coming. In IWBTG it's trial and error period. You can't advance without knowing that an apple will fall from a tree or that a specific spike in the wall is what you'll have to shoot to turn into a platform. It's pure masochism.

Buy everything! QUICK!

Or to put it another way: Super Meat Boy is too well-designed to be as hard as I Wanna Be The Guy.
