X or RT to run?

I'm wondering how many people use X to run and how many people use RT to run? Personally, I use X mainly because it feels a lot more natural and easier for me to fine tune control when it's pressed.

I started off using x but now i find it easier when doing boosted wall jumps to use RT. Some of those jumps are damn tricky when you're trying to use two buttons next to each other.

Yeah it's way easier if you use the right trigger.

My vote is for X, but that's only because I feel like my reaction to flatten my finger to press A/X is much quicker then my reaction to pulling the trigger constantly and trying to press A.

Same, the only problem is that my finger is killing me now from holding in the RT lol.

RT,

In mario i always change tghe controls so the bottom button [A on 360] is run and the right button [B on 360] is jump. so i can hold A and rock my thumb onto the jump

you can't change it in SMB so its trigger for me.

as for finger burnout. bruised thumb anyone?

I thought about this at the very beginning of this great game and I think the better way is using LT, because you will hold your controller easier in the moments of great tension...

LB would be the best because it responses faster, but unfortunately it's not possible...

Try LT, my friends!

I find RT is easiest to use, using X to boost feels to cramped right next to A.

For those saying that their finger aches from pressing RT to much, I find my thumb actually aches a lot more from repeatedly pressing A lol.

RT.

Has anyone else got into the habit of just holding down RT/x constantly?

i kinda use both, depends on what type of level it is, and if my finger / thumb / whole hand is cramping up

unfortunately i suck no matter what i use

i can't do half of rapture (5 - _) so i can't finish the light world
shame really, i was doing quite well until the rockets turned up (and ignoring dark world after world 1, christ, like the levels needed to be harder ... great game though, i like being made to feel useless. got bored of breezing through nonsense games these days, apart from 3rd person hack n slash games which i've found i'm also terrible at)

I started off using X, but there was one of the Bandage Girl levels that started to irritate me, so I switched it up. First time using LT on that level, and I succeeded.

I guess it depends on the level.

It's easier to double tap A when you use RT which I've found I've needed to do a fair amount in the later levels, especially if you want to max the times out. The only downside is because I always hold it down my finger gets cold after a while...

I use RT. I tried X for a while and it didn't feel right to me for some reason. I do better using RT.

Yeah, way easier to hold the button or trigger down. There aren't many occasions when you need to let go.

X all the way. Back in my day, controllers didn't have those fancy-pants "shoulder buttons" so we had to do everything with our thumbs.

I tried using RT when my thumb started getting tired, and it started to hurt after about a minute. Unfortunately, I think my X button is starting to wear out from this game...every so often Meat Boy will just drop into a walk for a second.

I use left trigger because it comes more natural to me. I find myself holding it down a little too often and getting myself into trouble though. Honestly, I've never really tried using X, so I might have to give it a try and see if I like it better. I used to be a big Mario player back in the day and some have mentioned that is more natural for them. So that may actually feel more comfortable to me as well.

Honestly, I think it is a very fun and enjoyable game. Team Meat (who made the game) are really cool as well and are updating the game every now and then with new and FREE levels. I would definitely grab it if you can, especially now that it is on sale for only 800MSP. However, I wouldn't get it if you don't like platformer games. I say download the demo just to make sure you like it.

Back on topic, I use RT to run. It just seems more natural to me.

LT for me. In my head I like to think that using both hands gives me double the reaction time, but considering how hard of a time I've had so far that might be a bunch of bologna.

I use X because it's carved into my brain from years of Mario.

I used to only use RT because for some reason I thought X would be too difficult despite my years of playing Mario. Now, however, I alternate between the two.

For Jill, however, I have to use RT because I feel the need to constantly be holding down the run button which makes flying with Jill awkward to keep pressing A when I'm holding down X.
