I got bored of Rock Band a week after I bought it, worst $170 I ever spent.

Just curious if you were playing with a group of people or playing by yourself.



I've played more with a group than I have solo but I honestly have a better time playing alone. There's no advantage to playing with others in this game, it's not like the computer AI is dumb and fucks up the notes so having human players doesn't provide an advantage. Not only that but during play you are so locked into what's happening on your own screen that you hardly notice what the other person is doing. The Rock Band experience, in my opinion, is highly overrated and I wish I hadn't fallen for the novelty of it's gimmick mainly because the price of admission was so steep.

I have a much better time playing Marvel Ultimate Alliance with 2-3 friends than I do Rock Band and that game was about $110 cheaper.

Well, one advantage to playing with other humans is that they can save you when you fail.  Playing solo, if you fail, you're just done, whereas in multiplayer, someone can bring you back.  The stacking multipliers also lead to player interaction as everyone can save up their overdrive so that everyone can activate it together in order to get a full 8x multiplier.  When I play MP, I'm constantly watching how everyone else is doing.  If someone's having a hard time, I'll save my overdrive so that I can save them when they fail, or sometimes deploy it when they get into the red to bump them back up faster.  If everyone's doing fine, then I hold it until we can deploy it together and go for score.

It's certainly possible that you're simply more interested in action games than rhythm/music games.  If you and your friends all feel that way, then no, I wouldn't think that Rock Band is the game for you, and that's totally fine.  However, I do believe that you're definitely in the minority on finding it no fun and totally overrated.

Not just that, but playing with others allows you to have a real party experience.  If you are playing with other people and not having more fun than playing with yourself, you either need to find new people to play with or you have problems having fun slywink

The one thing that I dislike (and it'a a minor dislike) is the walking controls.  Has anyone tried any of the alternate control schemes, and is there a way to make the walking controls more like the older games?

I know there are a few alternative controller configurations in the options menu, but personally I despised the previous GTA controls so I definitely would not want to go back.

Quote from: Arkon on May 05, 2008, 01:21:42 PM

So that there is no further derail to the werewolf game that is likely over at this point anyways...

How exactly has this situation been handled?  All I have seen is a statement from a mod that the half hearted apology was accepted.  While Dark El is not a Moderator, he has admin priveledges and clearly crossed the line.  Actions like this can kill a community very quickly.

Arkon,

I have not heard anything yet from Ron - although I know he has been notified. That's all the info i have at this point.

I do take a little offense that you call my apology was 'half-hearted', because it wasn't. I did make a mistake. I thought what i did was okay at the time but once I realized that it wasn't - I gave an honest apology and have both made promises to never do it again and offered to remove myself from the situation.  So there's really nothing more I can do, but to insinuate that i'm being insincere is a bit much.

Obviously if Ron chooses to discipline me that's fine.

what made me have second thoughts about the apology was the fact that in the first apology you also included that you thought Grund was annoying.  Insulting someone while apologizing kinda ruins it for me.

Good question from a friend who I watched this with last night.  Plot Spoiler.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Plot line question.  Why was the terrorist going through all the trouble to have Stark piece together the new missile when he was buying from Stark Industries in the first place?  I realize he didnít originally know it was Stark he was supposed to kill, but it just seems like a lot of trouble for what would probably be an inferior product (being pieced together in a cave and all).  Is there a good explanation, or did they just need a reason for Stark to make a suit?

Spoiler for Hiden:
They didn't know that Stark was going to build a suit, however, the only reason that I can think of as to why they would have him build it instead of purchasing it would be to save money not having to buy it...?   icon_confused

BTW, the cameo by Tom Morello was awesome.  For anyone that missed it, he was the first terrorist to go in the cave after Tony Stark donned the Mark I suit.  Great stuff...  biggrin

Spoiler for Hiden:
I'm not sure the weapons were part of the deal originally.  Maybe he was just paying them cash to kill Stark.  When they found out who it was they were to kill, they tried to get weapons out of it on both ends.

Guys, have you tried pressing down on the Dpad while in multiplayer?

Not only does it make the minimap larger, but it also brings up a player/team list in the top left.  I think that list tracks who is talking, so you can mute using that.

It shows who's on and what color they are, but it never lit up to show who is talking when I've seen it.

Hark, regarding your complaints about the graphics, it just occurred to me that you haven't touched single player.  Aren't the graphics turned down a bit for multiplayer?  I'd be curious if your complaints still stand after a longer visit in the solo Liberty City.

My complaints were based on SP.  In MP there is usually so much action I don't notice the graphics until I'm standing alone.

By the way, are there any ways to take out a helicopter besides ramming it with your own helicopter?  They seem move too fast to take out with bullet weapons (with lock-on disabled, at least) and since the RPG has no homing ability and is a bit slower moving than other video game rockets it's fairly impossible to use it on a heli that's not stationary or moving very very slowly.

Since helicopters are pretty useless at actually killing anything it's not that big of a deal slywink

Basically the only way for a heli to kill someone is to sit still enough to get killed.  So if you can't kill it, it probably can't kill you either.  When it can kill you, you have an equal chance of killing it.  Works out for me.

They aren't very useful imo, but I have so much fun flying them that I don't care.

If I had any decent weapons on it people would bitch.

just remember when shooting down a helo coming towards you that the thing still has momentum even as a charred hulk......

I had a burnt helo about to crash into me and broke it into two with a second shot of the RPG and the tail passed on my left and the fuselage on the right by mere feet.  Was wild.

ATB: STOP GOING TO B!
rattatatatatta whole team goes down (ATB captures A)
ATB: YOU RETARDS! STOP GOING TO B!
ratttatatatatata whole team goes down (ATB re-captures C)
ATB: <mutes mic>
rattatatatatatata whole team goes down (ATB disconnects after 5 straight losses and vows never to try that mode again without a team of people he knows)

 

This is one of the main reasons I don't play it either.

In addition, on some maps NOT taking a point is just as important as taking one.  Overgrown for example, you want to avoid taking B because you'll start spawning really far from A AND C.  This one has been trouble even in a team of all GT'ers though because people can't shake the thought of 'if the point is unguarded I should take it' which isn't always true.  One person takes point B and the whole team starts spawning a 20-30 second walk from the action and we lose.

I was considering writing an in-depth review about my initial impressions with both SP and MP but have been dealing with yet another nightmare of a day at work.  

Even though it is greatly out of character for me, due to time constraints my thoughts on the game so far are:

This game is absolutely amazing.  I love the depth of characters, the dialogue, the storyline, the gameplay, the attention to detail, Niko, I love it all.  Just the 3rd-person next-gen action/adventure game I've been waiting for.  I liked The Godfather, but I think GTA IV surpasses it in every respect.  Niko is a complex, deeply-troubled character in a situation he cannot control but has to endure in order to make a better life for himself.  He may be forced to do things he may not approve of, but it is all in order to move on from his troubled past.  

I love this game.

OMG!  Shortest PETE_POST ever!
