NintendoWare Weekly: Bit.Trip Fate, My Planetarium

It's new Bit.Trip day! Wii owners who enjoy trippy, pixelated visuals, dubstep music and tears can download Bit.Trip Fate today and learn a whole new way to be punished by Gaijin Games! In a good way. But if you'd rather substitute calm contemplation of the sky for rage, My Planetarium is there for you too.

Actually, the two might make good companion pieces -- when you can no longer handle seeing Commander Video fall out of the sky, you can read about the stars that have managed to stay up there for billions of years. And then you can go outside, guided by your DSi and Flashlight, and find a spot to look at the real sky. We're kidding, of course. Don't buy Flashlight.%Gallery-105917%
