Post if it ships tomorrow Jeff, I'll be ordering if it does.

Will do. I got an email confirming my order, but I haven't been charged yet, and I'm fully expecting an email tomorrow stating that the guitar is on backorder. I'll be extremely surprised if I get a new RB2 guitar for $59 that ships tomorrow.

Any word yet?

Thanks guys.

I kinda wish game devs would not do this. I'm buying the game and I feel like if I want to play Battery, right out of the box, I should be able to.

No doubt. I've been championing this concept in gaming for a long time. All you're doing is adding time to your game. Like playing through a level of an FPS, and then having to play through it backwards again to get to the next level. Music games should not feel like work. They should be fun.

The other major reason I despise this... after playing for months, my wife and I went to Arkansas to visit a friend of ours for July 4th weekend. Well, they had rock band so I didn't bother schlepping my system down. They hadn't unlocked most of the songs and they also had no DLC. Hooray for a fun evening of playing In Bloom, Learn to Fly and Go with the Flow! Later, about a month ago, a good friend of mine in town got Rock Band. About two weeks ago they had a party and naturally busted out the Rock Band. Fortunately, they had about 20 DLC tracks. Unfortunately, they also hadn't progressed through BwT or single player enough to unlock everything.

There is one good reason to keep the option on - so that a player has to give every song a listen - but most of the casual gamers and party gamers I know won't have the time or interest to just play through single player. Having to 'go online and find a code' - every time you start the game - simply isn't good enough, and the one I grabbed for RB1 when I googled for it simply did not work. There's too much misinformation floating around out there. Also, it neuters the game.

I did get to play Shackler's Revenge last night - as part of a score duel on expert guitar. It has some of the craziest HO/PO sequences yet.

It does more than add time to the game or make you listen to every song.  It is a big part of the gameplay.  Unlocking things are what keep you playing.  Not in a forced way, either, but in a more Pavlovian one.  The satisfaction of reaching a new tier is heightened by finding out what you've unlocked.

That said, I do wish they went in the direction of the most recent Smash Bros game, where playing in MP mode for a long enough period also unlocked things.  However, I enjoy the single player aspect of RB2, so I'm fine to keep playing, too.  Plus we have enough DLC and all the songs from the previous game to keep us going.

So, I'm playing the "Sound Guy" Challenge in Amsterdam, a 4 song set. Beforehand, the folks at Pearl at give me the "Do a harder drum song" option. I agree, since  it's not much of a risk to me as I'm playing guitar. The song listing:

Foreplay/ Long Time
Anyway You Want It
Pinball Wizard
and
Pinball Wizard

I don't think I've ever seen it the same song randomly twice in one set before, let alone right after another instance of the same song.

The crowd must really, REALLY love Pinball Wizard. biggrin

Or need to wash the taste of Journey out of their mouths with a double dose of Who.

I'm thinking about getting GH:WT since there will be downloadable songs. I'm not sure if RB2 will have that on the Wii. If RB2 also has downloadable songs it could be a tough choice.

RB2 is a full-fledged version this time according the publisher.
So, yes, it has DLC.

I was trying to remember if GH:WT was going to or not.
You guys sure on that? I've been thinking about GH for Wii, myself.



When I heard that news, it made me think the magic "not a hard drive" solution Nintendo's been teasing would be out kind of soon.  We'll see, I guess.
Well the system can already read music files off the SD card in game, granted only one game did that, Excite Truck, but the functionality is there they just need to expand it.

Aw, dammit.  I forgot about that.

Of course, that solution is going to require people to buy an SD card of at least 2GB.  That can get expensive.

I just cannot get excited for this game even after playing the demo and I'm a huge Star Wars fan.  I simply cannot get myself to play a "bad" character in a game.  No how, no way.  When playing the demo I could not kill the rebel soldier guys.  I had no problem with the stormtroopers.  I'm very funny that way with games.  I know it's just a game but for the life of me I cannot be bad in games.  Never have, never will.  I was secretly hoping that the story would in some way allow you to turn against the dark side and become good but everything I read about the game points towards that not being the case.

Still holding vigil for the next true Star Wars game:  Knights of the Old Republic 3 (and not the lame MMO  Roll Eyes).   

STARSHIFTER!!!

Back from the dead, I see!

I feel the same way about playing the baddie, usually.  I enjoyed the demo for this one, though it may be because I was a) able to create the idea that I'm secretly a good guy in my head (though there's a lot of rebel killing going on) and 2) holding out hope that there will at least be revenge against one of the big bads.  Surely, things don't go smoothly as a secret apprentice.

I'm still in on Star Wars: Force Unleashed and very in on DQ IV.  I may do Pure, if the reviews are very good.  If the reviews are sort of good, I'll wait for a price drop.  Otherwise, out.

When someone finishes Y2, I'd love to hear how long the playtime is.  I'm actually hoping it's kind of short.  I'm still working through Y1.  It was moving at a fast clip until I hit the first free-roam, then the side missions bogged it down a bit.  Still fun, but I'm trying to get through it quickly.

Also, any word or guesstimation on when Y3 might hit the States?

I am still not that happy with the sorting.  There is no quick way to get to the middle or end of a list.  You can cycle type of lists but I wish there were more.

You can hold down the (I think) yellow button/pedal, and that brings up a list on the left hand side with the different catgories in it, and then you can select one to jump to.  So if you want the Fleetwood Mac song, you hit Back until it's sorted by band, then hold yellow, go down to F, and there it shall be.

THAT was a great thing to stumble upon while playing yesterday.  One of my favorite new features. 

The no-fail option is the godsend I expected.  I only wish there was a way to have the original track be up louder for the person who is, say, a five year old flailing on the drums to a song she doesn't know.  My wife kept looking at me during "Hungry Like the Wolf" and saying, "I thought this song was faster."  I told her it was the drums, but she didn't believe me until we played it without my daughter a little later.  Then she said, "Wow, that really makes a difference."

Speaking of the wife, she really enjoyed the Career mode, which she's never ventured into before.  She didn't even mind singing the few metal songs we had to hit.  The little additions to that mode are great, IMO.  The whole thing has a different feel.   Different venues in a city, set lists geared to that city, charity events, earning your ride.  Very nice.  We played the Wicked Awesome set list in Boston last night.  Playing "Where Did You Go?" was a lot of fun.

However, I just about had a geekgasm last night when "Still Alive" came on in one of the set lists.  First of all, I love that it went through the entire catalog, not just the RB2 songs.  But listening to my wife sing GlaDOS was strangely exciting.  Made me want to play through Portal again.  I've been trying to get her to do it, but it's a hard sell.  She liked the song, though.


BTW, how are people liking the new guitar, for those that have it?  My Best Buy couldn't find their guitars, which was supremely annoying.  My favorite GH guitar is acting wonky in the neck, missing notes because of it, so I need a new one.  The RB clacking is distracting, to say the least. 
13134  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] Resistance Fall of Man on: September 13, 2008, 06:19:58 PM

Quote from: Jeff Jones on September 13, 2008, 06:00:47 PM

I just picked up Resistance today, used, and there was no game manual included. So I have a few questions:

* How do you heal?

* Is there a cover system?

* anything else I should know?

* Is there a PDF manual out in the wild anywhere?

The first thing I noticed was how great the sound was in the game. I just saw a video on PS.com where the Insomniac guys said they put great emphasis into the audio quality, and it definitely shows.

You heal by hiding.  However, you can only heal to the top of whatever section your health bar is in.  It's broken up into 1/4 sections.  Once you go past one of those sections, you can only auto-regen to the top of that section.  To fill empty sections, you need to pick up the glowing yellow vials on the ground.

You can go into cover by holding the left trigger (L2 = crouch) or just slipping behind a wall.

The main trick is to keep the health system in mind.  Pop out and into cover frequently, or you will drain everything and it becomes much harder to survive.  Also, don't wait to use health.  If you're down a section and you see a vial, use it.  No sense in holding off.  It's different than most other shooters and requires a slight brain shift, but it's slightly more strategic and interesting.

Also, the weapons get interesting and there are definitely right ones for a given job or based on what ammo is handy.

Closing Comments
Rock Band 2 improves in several areas over the original. The track list is better, the difficulty has been bumped up, it's more accessible, all previously released DLC works from the get-go, and Battle of the Bands is a brilliant online mode. But there's no getting around the fact that almost nothing was done to the main mode, World Tour. This is still the primary feature of Rock Band and yet it seems to have been neglected. It's hard to notice the newness when there's a big chunk of game that is just the same as it ever was.

That said, music game fans would be absolutely crazy not to buy Rock Band 2. Even if you hate a few of the songs on disc, you are still getting an incredible deal. It's less than a dollar a song, with an extra 20 free DLC coming in the next couple of months. That's just too good to pass up.

Street dates are for housewives and little girls! Rock Band 2 thumbs its nose at such restrictions and, as reader "Lancellot" shows us, gives a virtual high five to anyone who managed to finagle a pre-release copy of MTV Games and Harmonix's latest.

"Welcome to Rock Band 2!" the congratulatory splash screen reads "Nice work on scoring the game before it comes out!" So refreshing to see someone not be so uptight about the occasional retail leak.

Now, that doesn't mean the street date is broken, but it is a good sign that it may be possible.  Assuming you believe anything from Kotaku.

Either way, it means I'll be calling every store every day until Sunday, unfortunately.

Asctually, with a lightsaber, I feel like a controller is a better fit.  The mouse doesn't move in the right way.  Granted I'd love to see a stick lightsaber (or, of course, a 1:1 wiimote saber) versus buttons, but the mouse always felt odd to me.

Honestly, the G4 aspect was the one thing that screams FAKE to me the loudest.  Does anyone honestly think any network would give up 5 hours of TV time and not be hyping the shit out of it a mere two weeks before the event?  Especially G4, who run ads for nothing multiple times each commercial break.

Yeah, G4 is not one to sit on hype.  They really need to get viewers for their 2 hours of new programming a week.  I would guess that if any of this is true it would come before the big dashboard update in November, not now. 

The rumor was saying the big dashboard update was part of this.

Honestly, the G4 aspect was the one thing that screams FAKE to me the loudest.  Does anyone honestly think any network would give up 5 hours of TV time and not be hyping the shit out of it a mere two weeks before the event?  Especially G4, who run ads for nothing multiple times each commercial break.

You can buy the rock band 2 stand alone drum set this week too if you're just interested in playing that instrument.

apparently buying it any other day than on a tuesday is verboten around these parts...

For me it's the fact that by the time I can buy the game on Sunday my weekend is nearly over.  I do the majority of my gaming on Friday night and Saturday.  If the game isn't out until Sunday then that means I basically have the game for almost a week before I can devote a lot of time to it. 

It would just be nice to have a standard release day (I don't care if it's Tuesday or Thursday) so you don't have to guess "Will this store have my game in today?  What about that store?  What about that other game?  Who frickin knows."  And it's not like stores don't already have policies in place to handle music and movies like that, so why should games be so difficult?

I agree with that idea completely.

However, my whole family is looking forward to rocking out for several hours on Sunday.

EGM's reviewers gave it C / C / B-. Rethinking my preorder now.

The text of the EGM review was most worrying to me. On the first few levels you're introduced to the awesome force powers, but then you spend a lot of the game fighting guys who have anti-force gear? Sounds like the "Force Quite Leashed" to me.... I was IN after the demo, but now I am OUT until I hear more reassuring impressions of the game proper.

Yeah, this was a big bummer when I read the EGM review.

Seriously.  Force/energy shields?  That's never been in any of the movies, or any of the books I've read.  What's the point?

This game is going to be just a rental for me.

[pushes geek glasses up nose] Actually, there were the lizards in the first set of books, the Ysalamir, which could block the force and were pretty powerful.  Snort. [/geek glasses]

Bad idea in the books, too, though.
