The problem I've always had with Bit.Trip Beat is that you could only control it by twisting the Wiimote. It's not the most accurate control scheme and, since the game is largely built on the player's ability to quickly and precisely move from one place to another, it was one tough experience. Howe...

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories I mocked this "re-imagining" of Silent Hill when it was first announced.
