When will Harmonix wake up and put some LIVE on RB.  Anything from Throwing Copper would be awesome.

Yeah, that would be nice.  Although one of those guys has the same exact name as me, which would either be cool or distracting.

One of the band members is named Bullwinkle? Weird.

No, no.  It's my secret identity.  Bullwinkle's the name I fight crime with.  Like this:

Holy crap!  I randomly called Target today about the Eye of Judgment (the newly announced Hero game got me wanting a PS Eye).  Turns out it's on clearance for @ $35!  That's 50% off and less than the camera by itself.  It's still listed at $69.99 on the website for some reason, so if you're interested, call your local store!

This from Kotaku:

Quote
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.

Same. I'm not a fan of console controls to begin with. Give me a mouse and a lightsaber anyday.

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.

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.

Aw, now that's a bit of a bummer.  Once you get past Kansas and Steve Miller, the only tunes I care about are "Ramblin' Man" and "Bodhisattva."  It seems to be extremely Metal heavy toward the end there.  There's always a risk of that, since instruments seem to be played hard and fast in that genre, but I feel like they did a slightly better balancing job last year.  I don't know all of the songs, so I could be misjudging.  Of course, not knowing all of the songs is it's own issue... icon_wink

what i love is that this kid, who loved gears of war, apparently forgot that the sequel is coming out in a few months.  maybe when he sees it in action he'll bounce back to the 360 and sell his ps3 and one game.  

I'm sure she'll have an article that day about how she has proof that the 360 is making a comeback.  Tongue

More likely that he'll end up going blind from playing his Wii into the early hours of the morning, and then we'll have a 1:1 ratio of kids playing video games to kids going blind.

(and yes, Wii was a double entendre)

No, we won't have the 1:1 ratio until the Motion Plus comes out.  Right now, it's a slightly delayed wank.

Yes, I know they were "optional", but if they are there and keep presenting themselves to me I have a pathologic need not to fail and miss out on the content/options they present. 

I agree that Mercs 2 is not an A+ game but I guess I enjoy it despite its flaws, whereas some other games' flaws (like GTA4) drive me away. 

You can turn your phone off and not even be bothered by the calls.  That's generally what I do.  Or I'll say, "Sure, I'll go bowling with you" then call back a half second later to say, "Sorry, I can't make it," which apparently keeps them happy with you.  Still, it is a PITA to have to keep switching that "feature" off.   The dating gameplay is easily the worst thing about GTA IV.  And it's a big thing.

If you haven't seen a 35 year old classic, then I say too frickin' bad.  The statute of limitations has run out for your sorry butt.  Tongue

But this is the interwebs where people bitch and complain about things they should already be plain aware of but aren't, often because of their own faults. I'm just not anxious to see a flame war start because I brought up Michael launching the nuclear warheads against California from his boat before they faded to black. Spoiling that just seems wrong.

I realize we've moved on from this, but the recent grumbles here make me want to amend my post about the albums announcement throwing off the stink of the failed Rush album.  Although I am pretty sure the two go hand in hand, I personally think Harmonix has done a fantastic job with DLC.  Everybody wants different things from this game.  Party game, personal challenge, way to discover new music.  They're hitting everything and everyone's tastes.  OF COURSE, that's not going to happen every week.  It's been clear that they love music and love giving it to us.  I'm not going to begrudge them things slowing to a trickle (even though DLC is still coming fast and furious, really) to prepare for the Rock N Roll explosion of awesome that is sure to be Rock Band 2!

Didn't do much for me.

It looks insane.  I immediately got a DiRT-vibe from it, but kicked up a notch.  The really high drops felt...really high.  They nailed the look of the game.

It felt, to me, that the game was somewhat driving itself.  Sure, I moved the stick, but I never hit the brakes, was constantly on the accelerator...

The tricks were cool, but you're standard fare, I guess. 

People are going to really dig the game, but it's not my bag.  I'd download just to witness the graphic engine, woweeeee.

Did you try both levels, TML?  I had to hit the brake a few times in the non-tutorial one.  I got the impression that there would be some tighter turns later on, too.  There are also plenty of last minute route changes to be made.  However, I will admit that I prefer simpler racing and usually look for a minimal-brake style game, so that may be an issue.

The demo hit XBLM and PSN today.  It's an ATV racing game from Disney.  Yeah, Disney.  No, you don't get to pretend you're Goofy, ears flapping as you laugh, "A-hyuh-hyuh" on a big jump.  It's pretty straightforward racing.  Pure, they would say.  It's pretty well done, too.  It's by Black Rock Studios who used to be Climax who made the MotoGP series.  This seems to be a little easier to handle than MotoGP, but there is some challenge there.  It's also clearly about insane stunts.  There seems to be a lot of emphasis on pre-loading your jumps and pulling off the right moves.  At first, you can only use the A button and left stick for stunts, but as you do, you fill up your thrill meter (or somesuch), which lets you progressively use other buttons for longer and more challenging stunts. Of course, the thrill meter can also be used up with turbo.  The graphics are sharp and the controls seem pretty tight.  Honestly, I was surprised, but I'm not a racing afficionado, so YMMV, but apart from the fact that it doesn't do anything incredibly different from other racing games, it seems pretty damn good.

Flaws aside, this is now my six-year-old son's favorite game. He adores it, and seems to be having less trouble with the controls now.

I want to spend some more time with it before I render final judgment. At the moment, I'd say it's a good game, but not deep enough to warrant a $50 purchase. $30 seems to be a fairer price.

Depends on what you're looking for in a baseball game.  Personally, I found MLB a little overwhelming.  This is good, light fun.  And something my five year old could enjoy.  But you're probably right about the $30 price.

I caved and bought the game.  Ten minutes of play, and I got the viral achievement.  Also learned that I don't want the game set to link up with strangers anymore.

I really enjoy it so far.  The humor is phenomenal.  I LOVE the Devastator.  I'd read other comments about it, but didn't know what to expect.  Blowing stuff up is more fun than I remembered from the first game (I, too, never got far past the first deck, though I enjoyed it - I'm actually glad this one seems shorter).

I'm glad the forum effect got me this time.

I still have to slog through the rest of GTA IV out of some sadistic need to date men.

Pathetic, trade in GTA 4 now while you can still get a decent amount for it... I actually made it to 51% complete in this iteration of GTA before selling it back...amazing.

The only two sandbox world games i've ever FINISHED are Mercs 1 and that new GTA clone series on 360 which name i can't recollect atm.

Crackdown or Saints Row? Crackdown is awesome. biggrin

Saints Row is also awesome.  I actually just dusted it off yesterday to try to finish it before the sequel hits.

Ubisoft announces that if you pre-order they will automatically bump you to the LE version. 

Quote
The FREE Limited Edition Upgrade is only available by pre-ordering and will include in addition to the regular SKU:

. Collectable Limited Edition packaging
. An exclusive look at the making of Prince of Persia
. A Prima® digital mini-strategy guide full of developer's secrets to help players master the year's best action-adventure game
. A digital art book that chronicles the game's journey from concept to winner of Best Artistic Design at E3 2008 . The original soundtrack scored by master composer Inon Zur
. And much more.

Mini-strategy guide?  That usually means the first level.  Lame.

I've been thinking for years that they need to start including the strategy guide in Collector's Editions.  I would mostly buy them then.

There's a third game coming to XBLA this week - Gin Rummy.

If Gin Rummy is any good at all, I might get it, believe it or not.  It probably will suck zombie balls, though.

I have to say, the graphics are far more off-putting than I thought they'd be.  Still enjoying it, but that was surprising.

Hmm...I think the graphics are quite good for a SNES game. Were you perhaps expecting something with the visual quality of DK Country? Other than DKC or LoZ:LttP I don't have any SNES games that look this good.

In my mind, I had been comparing this to Paper Mario.  Unfair, I know, but it happened all the same.  I guess I knew it was for the SNES not the N64, but I was expecting more when I loaded it up.  As I said, it put me off.

Turtle, if the two quotes you pulled are one and the same, if the "gameplay" is the construction, then that's just not a game to me. 

And, semi, I feel I've been very clear and on point.  Yes, I would like a clip like the Super Mario Galaxy one you showed.  I don't need for them to pretend the editor doesn't exist.  I get that people want that, and I get that those people will put out some levels.  However, though the game looks beautiful and the physics look fantastic, what I've seen so far is an engine.  A framework to put a game on.  Yes, I know there have been some levels.  Yes, I even get that what they showed in the editor video was a level you can play.  However, they didn't show anyone playing it, they showed how you can build it.  Which makes me think that what they are trying to sell is not the game or the gameplay but the engine/level editor.  Which makes me believe that, out of the box, there are going to be a handful of levels showing the types of things you can do, not a bunch of levels to play.  I don't need a story, as I've already said.  But I do need gameplay.  As I've also said, I'm a big platformer fan.  I would love for this to be hours and hours of level jumping fun.  I'd settle for a mere 6 - 8 hours of actual gameplay.  All the marketing I've seen point to far less than that, until people start messing around with the editor.  I'm sorry if my point has been confusing for you. 

By the way, as I've also also said before, I really want to like this game.  If there is enough platforming, it seems like the type of thing I could really enjoy.  It's the reason I keep coming in here, despite starting to feel like Starshifter every time I do (straight down to a suspicion that I'm being mocked in the subject header).
