played up to the first real dungeon, & i'm liking it a lot more than i thought i would. nice to see all the main characters from chocobo tales (the best ds game hardly anyone's played) - i didn't realize the games would be so directly linked (having just played mgs4, the question has to be asked: has anyone ever seen cid & otacon in the same room? they look, talk, & even pretty much function alike. weird....)...

kinda glad the game's a little more forgiving than shiren, which i never felt up for. should be a nice break between sessions of ffta2 smile ...


edit: played thru 2 dungeons, & this game'll do just fine. the whole lost memory thing is a clever & nicely disturbing hook to center the dungeon exploring around...

I did get a big smile on my face when I realized the farm was the exact same layout as the one from Chocobo Tales.

Always up for more Wolfenstein, but the city thing sounds too limiting to me, personally, despite the open-ended-ness of it.  I preferred the story progression and the variety of locations.  Also, is it getting too supernatural now?

Too Human is going to be the Microsoft's Haze.  I remember when I had high hopes for Haze....then the demo arrived.

I agree completely, except for the part about having had high hopes for Haze.
I hope I'm wrong (i.e. that this is another Assassin's Creed and not another Haze),
but I have a feeling the demo will kill interest in the game completely.

the biggest killer is the game can be finished in roughly 10 hours. 60 bucks for 10 hours. mmmm, no.

And the great quality over quantity debate continues.

Let me give you my side:  You're wrong. icon_wink

Now, I'm not sure about the quality of Too Human, but I would much rather pay $60 for an amazing 8 - 10 hour game over a 60 hour game that I'll never finish that isn't very compelling.  Hell, 10 hours seems to be standard length these days.  Truth be told, I would probably have paid $60 for Portal, the most amazing game of last year, IMO.  That game was only around 4 hours, but it was pure gold (and I played it twice and may do so again).

  I will say "Comfortably Numb" got me psyched.  It's a pretty slow song, though.

"Comfortably Numb" came on in the car today, and there is no way that song would work for Rock Band.  It's a great tune, but it's way way way too laid back.  Glad to hear the list isn't real.

Of course, the Scissor Sisters version of "Comfortably Numb" is the exact opposite...

if anyone knows what im talking about though - how great was that? (and at least its an early spoiler, though like i said it would have been at least 3 to 4 times better in game smile)

well, looks like i'll be skipping that trailer.

I stopped pretty early into it.  I didn't find out anything too surprising, but it was stuff I didn't know.

are there more traps in a room than shiren?  it didn't seem like there were that many traps early on and most of them were not so horrible to nerf you too badly.  mostly just arrow traps and confuse.  oh well.  i'll still end up playing it as i did shiren.  play a ton of the early levels to build up a good equipment supply before trekking further in.



Never played Shiren, so I can't say.  They're not frustrating in frequency or effect, it's just that you either can't avoid them at all (unless you get lucky), or you have to kick with every single step.  Now that I'm talking about it, though, I do recall hearing that there may be abilities that help with the traps.

I picked it up yesterday and played for an hour and a half or so.  This is a very brief first impressions take.

I was underwhelmed at first, for sure, but it kicked in pretty quickly.  You know what you're getting, basically, if you've played this type of game before, but it does seem simplified.  I do like the idea of each dungeon being someone's blocked memory; that adds a certain extra level to the experience.  I've always liked the idea of these mystery dungeons, but they usually become too much too soon.  This one definitely eases you in.  I wish it would play close to the level where it is now, personally, only increasing slightly over time.  I think most mystery dungeon fans will be frustrated with the ease of it early on.

The graphics are nice, for the Wii, but the recorded dialogue is just awful.  Mostly because of these awkward, long pauses between snippets.

I'm not sure if this is common to the genre, but the invisible traps are incredibly irritating.  Basically, they're asking you to take a step then kick for every single square until you get the idea of the map's layout.

Overall, it is fun once it gets underway.  If the dungeons stayed the size of the first couple, it would be a great pick up and play game, but I have a feeling they'll become increasingly massive in size.  I will play it, but I have a hunch it won't be one I ever get around to finishing.

Golf: Tee it Up:

Pick up and play a few quick holes on your own or compete in a full 18-hole multiplayer tournament with friends in “Golf: Tee It Up!” Both beginners and experienced golfers can easily join the fun on beautiful, panoramic and challenging courses. With the unique Focus feature, you can read the green or control the ball’s spin in flight to achieve amazing precision! “Golf: Tee It Up!” features zany, customizable characters and a variety of game modes including stroke, cup, or match play with local or Xbox LIVE multiplayer modes.


Schizoid:

Quote
“Schizoid” is a fast and furiously paced action game with simple, intuitive gameplay. Billed as “the most co-op game ever,” reflexes and smarts are key but sharp teamwork pays off even more! Ram your way through waves of glowing enemies: single player with an AI bot helper; or co-op multiplayer with two players offline or online through Xbox LIVE. “Schizoid” features over 120 challenging levels of mayhem that will appeal to casual and hardcore gamers alike. For the brave player, “Schizoid” offers the intense Uberschizoid game mode, in which a single player controls two different ships at the same time.

Fun fun.

Both of these could be good.  The golf game looks nice, at least.

Read an article that said the guy responsible for Led Zeppelin's catalog (not the band members apparently?) isn't comfortable with the whole 'video game use' of their music. Of course they have no problem using it for bad commercials, etc.

On the other hand Pete Townshend actually plays RB with his family and helped them pick the songs for the Who pack.

It's not the use of the songs, it's the use of the Masters, which is relatively understandable.  It also bodes better for Rock Band than GH, because at least the guys in Harmonix are real musicians with a love for music.  If anyone can convince them that they'll treat the tracks with the utmost respect, it's Harmonix.

Make sure you didn't eat bad or poisoned food or you don't have a leach attached (they drain stamina quickly).  Otherwise it should take quite a long time for your stamina to drain. 

AH, maybe I have a leech after trudging through the swamp.  Seriously, the stamina bar is dropping at a supremely irritating rate.

Should I have gotten a codec warning about leeches or anything?

And, holy shit (if this is true), now my two odd Rock Band wishes are coming true.  The Go-Gos and Steely Dan.  Sad that it's my least favorite Dan song, but hopefully it means others may follow.  Also, seeing Elvis Costello, Devo, Duran Duran, Talking Heads, Squeeze (!) added to Billy Idol, more Blondie and the aforementioned Go-Gos, and my 80's joybuzzer is going crazy.  Add a little Martha Quinn lead-in and I'll be in checkered-Vans heaven.

Honestly, there are so many surprising and awesome tracks on here, I'm looking very forward to this.  "Lump" will be awesome, along with "Float On," and so will "Carry on My Wayward Son" and "Aqualung."  They've also got Norman Freakin' Greenbaum on there, for the love of Pete Rock.  "You Oughta Know," "American Woman," "Holiday in Cambodia."

And the more Allman Bros the better.

But where the hell is "Radar Love???"

I wish we'd get more covers Tongue

I'd kinda like some covers that are actual covers and not covers that are trying to be as close to the originals as possible though.  I like to hear other artist's takes on music sometimes.

I'm not against covers in the real world, just in these types of games.

I don't know that skipping the walkthrough is always good advice.  There are definitely sections of MGS3 that I wouldn't have gotten past before getting frustrated with them had I not used the guide.  For me, there are games where I love figuring out puzzles.  MGS isn't one of them.  I'm playing an MGS game, the first time at least, mostly for the story.  Gimmick bosses are cute and all, but I don't generally love dying to them over and over again while I figure out what obscure trick you have to use to get past them.

Just hit Select.  Seriously.  The MGS games essentially have built in walkthroughs- that's what the codecs are for and they are generally very good at providing general hints before just flat out telling you what to do.  MGS3 is especially good in this regard (MGS4 unfortunately just flat out stated the solution via codec right off the bat too  many times for my taste). 

As to where to go, in MGS3 it's real easy- Go North (with one very brief exception that is more than spelled out for you). 

Yeah, I'm already getting that Go North strategy (I just got to the start of
Spoiler for Hiden:
the Snake Eater mission
, so now I can actually use the guide)*.  In MGS2, there was a lot of backtracking and while the rooms looked the same, the map of the structure didn't help much.  Though I will say, I also like to make sure I didn't miss any important pickups before moving too much further on. 


*I'm leaving that comma in there, but, man, those spoilers don't want you to be grammatically correct.

So if you want to, use the walkthrough, and don't feel bad about it.  Having finished MGS3 and 4 using a walkthrough where I felt I needed to, I don't think I robbed myself of anything.  In fact, since I finished them, I think I had a much more fulfilling experience than I would have if I'd spent a large chunk of my gameplay frustrated at the game, which might have kept me from finishing in the first place.  I would play with it closed, and open it up if you get stuck, then close it again.  But that's just me, you play it any way you want to.

That's generally how I play with a guide, though I also used it in MGS2 to figure out where I should be heading next.  I also use them for a bookmark of sorts.

I meant the Snake Eater mission.  That's where the crappy guide starts, skipping the Virtuous Mission entirely.  No mention of it.  The screenshots made it look more modern, so in trying to keep from getting spoiled, I misled myself.

I'm up to MGS 3, amazingly!  However, I bought the Subsistence guide to, um, guide me through it, and that guide is just god-awful.  One of the worst guides I've ever seen.  They completely skip an entire section, moving right to
Spoiler for Hiden:
the modern day section,
a surprise that was ruined for me, as I had to figure out what the hell was going on and what the guide was missing.

I bought the rock band drum silencers last night:

No noticeable problems yet. And a noticeable improvement of enjoyment of playing drums (because I can actually hear the effing song)

I've had the silencers for several weeks, big thumbs up from me.

I bought them last week too.  I just could not get used to them.  For some reason I lose my rhythm unless I can hear the drums being hit and the extra bounce really threw off my timing.  They are excellent noise reduction pads and they make the drums look nice.  But I could not use them.  icon_frown

I had a different set and bought these to replace them.  Hopefully, when my replacement drum kit arrives, I can transfer them with no sticky loss.

welcome the world of crappy pads! do you have a QM set? You can always penny mod it. that's what I had to do. Also socks and the rubber band works well I hear.

QM Set?  I don't follow...


I just found this out recently and just got off the phone with EA Support about it.

If you look on the bottom of your drum pads, you'll see a number printed with a set of letters. I have the old set, the EL set, which is the original set and has noted problems.  The most recent is the SL.  The QM is the middle set. 

Here's the link I used.  http://www.rockbandmods.net/drums/rock-band-drum-version-guide

BTW, EA just extended the warranty.  I'm getting a replacement pad within a week.
