I played a few times last night, finally figured out my headset.  Even got to the point where I wasn't being shot out of the sky immediately at every turn.

I will say, it seems like the people who are playing this game have been playing since Day 1.  It's not noob friendly at all.

I read someone's tips earlier (don't remember who, sorry), and they helped.  Any other tips for someone just starting?

I definitely feel bad in a snobbish kinda way for people who don't give music they aren't familiar with a shot.  I pretty much download it all and have been pleasantly surprised that I enjoy either listening to, playing or both almost every song I've downloaded.  (didn't like Cherry Bomb, that's about it)

Trying out new music can be very nice, and it often takes a few listens to appreciate a new style or band that you aren't familiar with.

I don't think that's fair, really.  I am more than happy to try new music when buying CDs and such, but the unknown songs get very, very little play in Rock Band.

I was in love with "Maps" when I first got the game.  I'd heard the song before, but it really opened up for me in the game.  I tried numerous times to get my family or friends to play it and have met with, "Meh, let's do Dani California again" every time.

I played a whopping fifteen minutes of the first one and never touched it again due to the aforementioned control scheme.

That's the same for me, but it might be upped to more like 45, because I tried to get through the first level.

Quote from: kronovan on April 18, 2008, 04:09:10 PM

I only played 1 and 3, but Onimusha 3: Demon Siege is by far the best of those 2 and IMHO 1 of the best games on the PS2. The 3rd game also features Jean Renaud who does a very good voice acting job. If you decide to play the 1st I'd skip the PS2 game and play Genma Onimusha for the Xbox instead, which was really like a Director's cut of the PS2 game; it's also BC. Be warned that the 1st game is deceptively easy for much of the game in that you can choose to avoid certain battles that make it more or less impossible to defeat the final boss if skipped. The controls in the 1st game are also very much like the moving human tank controls in RE games. I was able to adapt to them, but some friends of mine gave up.

I really just want to go to the third one, I think.  Will I be completely lost, story-wise?

[Edit] Sorry BW, I missed your last comment before I posted. You'll be fine playing 3 without knowledge of the earlier games. In fact in it might be better to not have played the earlier game in ways in which I won't state in fear of spoiling it for you.

Thanks, kronovan, I'll be picking it up today.

Yep.

I fired off an email to all my friends who join me at my place for regular Rock Band parties and so far every response has been negative ("Why can't they release anything that's not over 20 years old", etc). We're all in our mid-twenties. I was actually born in 1982 and thus have no familiarity with this Priest album at all.

That's completely understandable, and it's how I felt when I saw them release several garage band types of modern bands I'd never heard of. I just skipped those weeks. However, Judas Priest for me was in the very midst of my high school years, and was extremely popular during that time. There is a huge chunk of RB players that are in their late 30's, thru early-mid 40's who will buy this.

I completely agree that there's a whole demographic of late 30's thru early-mid 40's that needs to have their fix. But since the beginning of March they've released Blondie, The Police, Skynyrd, Boston, and the Grateful Dead. The other two packs were the Thrash Pack (very niche) and the Harmonix Pack which includes very obscure bands. Nothing wrong with lesser-known bands, but I wouldn't call them first-class DLC releases.

Speaking as a member of the mid-twenties crowd, we feel neglected. And then they go ahead and announce three albums today, all of which are tunes that appeal to the over 30 crowd again. It would have been so much better if they would have announced the Priest album, Nevermind, and then (just for example) a 10-song collection from Stadium Arcadium. Something for everyone there and I think it would be hard to argue that they're catering to only one particular audience.

Well, they may be catering to one particular agr bracket, but I don't think they're catering to one particular audience.  There have been a lot of styles of music available. 

I think there are two basic reasons why they've gone further back for most songs.  A) They're trying to get "classics" and as such, newer songs don't fit that bill.  I know, I know there are a lot of not so known songs on the list, too, but that leads to the second reason: 2) The guys making this are probably all in their 30s and 40s as well, and they're picking their own classics and working in the genres and with the songs that they are familiar with, because that will let them get the most out of them.

Thanks for the preview (and posting about it here). 

Since you said the two versions aren't too far from each other (though the 360 version is maybe not as sharp), I'm definitely going 360 to avoid that ridiculous install size.

I remember it looking nicer when I upscaled it on my PS3, but I haven't compared the two directly now that I have the Wii version as well. I only did up to the 'cut down the fruit' part then stopped last night, but I didn't have any issues with drawing. Only took one attempt for the rock, barricade and fruit. Don't paint the slash slowly, I think speed counts more here then perfectly horizontal.

Only problem I had was with 'restoring' the stardust river, only got partway across because I hadn't "painted" far enough over. Had to turn back, paint more and try again. Twice.  icon_lol

Thank you.  I was trying to be too precise, it seems.  Speed and less ink are the trick.  I have no problem at all now.

So, I picked up Okami for the Wii (can someone tell me what Okami means?  It's not the name of the character, but they list it when the character appears).

It's a play on words.  The word "okami" (with a line over the "O") means "wolf."  The word "kami" means "god," but you can put an "o" honorific in front of it to get okami.

Ah, that'll do it.  Thanks, WP, it felt like Toshiro Mifune was giving me that tip, himself.

I never played the PS2 version.  It looks very nice on the Wii.  Not what the system is capable of, but it is widescreen and it will work.

For the most part, the controls are good.  I'm having a real problem with the horizontal slash brush stroke, though.  The game seems to be incredibly picky about making it just right (I'm assuming "just right" means 100% horizontal).  Even on the very first test rock, it took me a dozen tries to get it.  This doesn't bode well for what seems like a technique that'll be used frequently. 

Anyone else have this issue?  Was it a similar problem on the PS2?  Man, it's irritating.

I liked Spider-Man 1 and 2.  3 was pretty bad, and Friend or Foe, the demo anyway, was a complete joke.

I actually enjoyed FoF, but I understand it doesn't scratch most people's Spidey itch (especially when the only other game released at the time was Spider-Man 3).  I thought 1 was okay, but I liked 2 a lot and Ultimate Spider-Man was very good.

And if they add only one more Bowie song . . . it must be "the man who sold the world" . . . that would even make some Nirvana fans happy.

Nirvana's the only one they've mentioned, so I'm sure that'll happen.  Of course, they only have to release one more song off of Boston's first, but that would feel like a gyp.  Personally, I'm hoping we see Bowie's Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.  Probably not right away, but what a great album.
13418  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSN Store redesign unveiled...but no updates until then?? on: April 17, 2008, 04:40:56 PM
My biggest issue with the store isn't really an interface one.  

I find it ridiculous that I have to download something, then find that thing in the XMB and install it (and wait for it to install).  That's ridiculous.  I also wish there was a way to group everything in user created folders, organized the way I want to do it.  I'd like a favorite game to appear in the folder, not just the latest I've downloaded.  And I want separate folders for demos and games.  Knowing me, there's probably a way to do that, but I haven't found it.

Overall, though, the redesign is a huge step forward, but it's not as polished as XBLM (which not only downloads something that is immediately useable, it gives you the option to find and play that item right away).

Thats what I thought. This may sound stupid, but how should i sit. i mean outside of the straight back. Should my ass be on the whole chair or hanging off a bit? Main reason I got a throne is because my computer chair would hit my thigh while playing. So it made fast kick pedal parts really hard at times. So I'm use to have my ass on the whole chair. I tried to google videos, but all I found didn't show how to sit, just about keeping the back straight and elbows close.

edit:I came across this link
http://www.drumsmylife.com/tips-for-a-healthy-back-vt8857.html

Suppose it depends on the size of your ass.  Tongue  Never thought about it before, but I suppose I sit with my butt smack in the middle of the chair.  I play the bass pedal with my heel up, so sitting too far forward on the throne throws off my balance.



I always felt that the pedal should be able to go further back into the drum set.  I'd love to be able to sit back while I play.
13427  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Any word on that Lair patch? on: April 15, 2008, 09:16:33 PM
I will give that a try tonight.  Good news, if so.

EDIT:  The right D-pad key is like a boost while the left one does the 180.  Fantastic.

I played another mission tonight and had a much better time with it.  However, there are still some problems that make the game seem unpolished.  For example:
Spoiler for Hiden:
I was making an assault on a laser-eye rotating multi-headed base and had to fly into a mouth, attach myself to a counter weight, then shake the controller up and down.  Supposedly, this told my dragon to claw at the chain of the counterweight until it came loose and, I guess, seal up a vent of some kind.  Problem is, my dragon just kind of sat there looking menacing and not moving.  The chain still got released, though.
  There seem to be a lot of instances where I'm not really sure what's going on, just all of a sudden I'm supposed to be hitting buttons or shaking the remote.  It doesn't help that there is no way for me to tell the dragons apart at all.  Basically, if I see a red targeting icon, I start shooting.  The lock on feature is a little odd, too.  I'm unclear how it kicks in, exactly.  Some times it seems to work, others not.  Sometimes it seems to put me in a one-on-one fight with some other dragon when I really just wanted to flame it.

There is fun to be had, for sure, though.  When the game looks nice, it looks really nice.  And the dragons are pretty cool.  It may be worth $20 to check it out.

I played a few more.  Flying is great, but you still have to use the sixaxis for things like locked-on attacking and doing a 180.  Those don't work well at all.  Especially the 180.  I was flipping the damned controller all over the place, hoping I would turn around.  Grrr.


I found it easier to relax and sort of over-exaggerate without overdoing it...it would work pretty regularly using this method.

I'm sure I just haven't found the sweet-spot yet, but it's pretty frustrating.

Quote from: Destructor on April 15, 2008, 05:44:30 PM

So, here's the question - I avoided Lair simply due to the forced Sixaxis gameplay. Is the game worth grabbing now (at $20 or whatever it goes for) or not?

I've only played a handful of missions, but I will say I was planning on playing little else but this game today, and I think I'm done for a while.  There are other problems than just the sixaxis controls.  There are framerate issues aplenty, for one thing.  There are also weird hiccups in jumping to cut scenes.  It's WAY too dark on my TV.  Sometimes the graphics are stunning, and at others they're pretty unremarkable.

Most of my frustration is with that 180 move, though, so maybe after I calm down, I'll give it another go.  I still wouldn't pay full price, though.

On a more serious note some analyst has been tossing around some unbelievable numbers today. Apparently he's claiming the Wii did 700K last month; gotta see it to believe it. I also read his claim that the PS3 did 365K and the 360 did 310K, which is  a damn significant jump in sales too! Probably just another asshat analyst with a broken calculator, but I'll eat crow if the predictions are true.

If they count used sales figures in there (which I know they don't), then I'm added to the PS3 list.  Honestly, though, I think the death of HD DVD is going to have those PS3 numbers climbing, especially after refund/economic stimulus checks arrive.

I gotta say no on that for me.  This is a huge improvement over what was there, but it's nowhere near XBLM.

how is XBLM so much better?  I mean, it might still be a little better (haven't decided yet), but it's certainly not a big difference anymore

I find it clearer to read and easier to navigate.  It also loads much faster.  Part of the reason for that is the clean layout.  Yes, the alphabetical grouping is nice, especially given the massive amount of content on XBLM, but if I'm looking for something specific, I can use the shoulder buttons and scroll to it in a matter of seconds. 

I also like that XBLM is designed for my widescreen HDTV.  The size of the PS Store still makes it feel like an afterthought.

"Rock This Town" - Stray Cats

"Goldfinger" - Tribe

"And She Was" or "Psycho Killer - Talking Heads (or anything)

"Sweet Home Alabama"  - Lynyrd Skynyrd

"Blue Jean" - David Bowie (I also support more Bowie - "Ziggy" would be phenomenal - just no more covers)

Anything - Eric Clapton (though I'd especially love to have the endurance testing "The Core")

Anything - The GoGos (for the goofy fun factor)

Anything - INXS

Anything - Sly & the Family Stone (or Paliament or other funk)

BEATLES (don't let GH get 'em)

LED ZEPPELIN (see above)

Hi, everyone! Just wanted to provide an update about the PlayStation Store. The store for both the PS3 and PC will be unavailable starting early morning Monday, April 14 through early morning of Tuesday, April 15. You will not be able to access either store during this maintenance window.

As you know, we are preparing to release the revamped interface of the PlayStation Store for the PS3, which will be available on Tuesday. Regular weekly updates of the store will resume on Thursday, April 17, along with the release of GT5 Prologue.

Thanks for all the positive feedback about the upcoming store design!

So that means, what, the store is unavailable now (and started sometime after midnight), and the new one will be up after midnight tonight (but presumably before I get up)?  Right?

I might be getting Rocky & Bullwinkle for XBLA.  I love the WarioWare games and there aren't many games of this type out there.

I didn't realize that was this week!  Woot!  I hope it doesn't suck.

I am all over Okami.

Maybe Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis.  I liked the last one.

If you're not into GTA type games (as you mentioned), this one still might work.  It's on a much smaller scale (at least it seems so to me, I have only made it into the town).  The only thing that's mildly ridiculous is the class schedule and making sure you get to class.  It sounds worse than it is, though, especially because once you pass a class you don't have to go again.  Then it's easy to focus on collecting and the story.

Absolutely worth $40, if you have a BB near you.

No problems since the patch for me, either, BTW.

Isn't the wheel just a plastic thingy to hold the remote? It doesn't actually improve the controls of the game besides making it easier to hold on to right?

True, but how it's designed can make all the difference. Consider the Wii light gun attachments as an example. They're just pieces of plastic that hold the wiimote and nunchuk, but it's how they've been designed to encase the controllers that makes all the difference. Case in point is the difference between the Wii Blaster and the Nyko Perfect Shot. I've spent a lot of time with both and I can confidently say the Perfect Shot is much superior to Big N's design. In fact the blaster design makes some gameplay mechanics quite ineffective.

The shape and size of the Wiimote wheel could also be quite important as it going to have to be able to accommodate a lot of different hand sizes.

I heard in some video hands-on a while back that the wheel does make a difference in control.  Apparently, without it you have to tilt to extremes, while the wheel makes things feel more natural.
