Default Super Meat Boy

Anyone else get this game? I've been interested in it for a while and picked up the PC version.

I played it for a bit yesterday. Only got to world 2 so far and I love it. Using a 360 controller.

I love the replays. There's something mesmerizing about watching all of your failed attempts run through the level at once.

Love the music too.

I was contemplating buying it. Played the original on Newgrounds, and it was really fun.

I just wonder if its worth the $15

It's a huge step up from the Newgrounds game. There's loads of content, just depends on how much you value platformers. It's in my top 10 of 2010 for sure.

I love this game. I've got it on the Xbox though and it has a stupid save bug that hasn't been fixed yet so if you want to buy it, buy it on Steam.

I love the nostalgia of playing it. All the great 8 bit homages and the soundtrack is great too!

You will get Carpal Tunnel from crushing the run button though. (Three hour play session makes my hands into claws)

Do you use X or RT for run? I used X at first but it would hurt my hand a lot after a while. Switched to RT and I don't get pain or cramped anymore.

I have to switch back and forth depending on the jump style needed. The Claw definitely happens worse with the RT though.
