Grr!

Installing now. 

Should be patched up by this evening.

Pretty sure I have close to a full  roster on Virtue but I mainly played on Victory.

Villians or?


Villian for me?

It was permanent marker!

It's too hard to believe that someone would go through that much trouble to erase the signatures.  I'm putting my money on someone swiping the case and adding those permanent marker removal smudges to make it look like it was just accidentally cleaned.

Well, I'm patched up and will be on tonite.  Will make a  Mastermind I think on CoV side.  Not sure on name.  It was good seeing my CoH scrapper Forge this morning.   Looking forward to hooking up with you guys tonite.

I get so involved in maintaining the rhythm, I kind of forget about the little guys

Not sure if I like it or not yet, but I certainly applaud them for the effort of trying something different and I'm glad I bought a copy to support that.  smile

I think will turn out be one of those titles that will become rare. 

If you don't play with a head set then I suggest you try a pair as this has helped me in my gameplay.  I'm currently stuck on mission 10 vs a catepillar type Boss.  He takes out my spear guys pretty easily so I'm trying to figure out a different tactic with this guy.

Well, I installed and re-upped.  Thanks Hark for the 15 day free trial , so I'll patch tonite and grab CoV (it is free sinceI have the original client?)  and hopefully I will be online tonite.  Hopefully this will cure me of my mmo fix

Grrrr....haven't been able to find the game out in the wild.

I do have one concern I'm hoping someone can clear up. Since rhythm games are not my specialty (to say the least), is it possible to replay levels or areas to "power-level" your tribe in case you can't quite keep up with the beat consistently on a later, more complex stage? I'm really worried about hitting a brick wall that I'll be unable to pass. Rhythm games and fighting games seem to be like kryptonite to me.

yes to an extent.  You can keep hitting the hunting plain and farming bosses, but each time you beat a boss it will go up a level.  One of the tool tips even suggest leveling your tribe in such a away when you hit a brick wall

N00b question:


Do I have to do anything different once my guys go into fever mode?  I keep losing it after a few seconds.



Listen to the beat and your army response.  The beat speeds up slightly and there response  also quickens.  You need to match that response and beat.   Seems daunting, but once you get the timing it  becomes second nature

Sometimes it's better to just drop fever/combos/beat to regroup and avoid getting attacked, and to line up your actions with the boss' timing.

This last tip is important.  Defense is becoming more important with some of the higher level bosses.  Don't forget to practice the defense beat


Loving this game! Had me up til 1 am just trying one more time and it's been a long time since a game had that effect on me  thumbsup

I'll say this. $400 to play games = no sale, IMHO. So it plays blu-ray movies. Its still marketed as a game machine.

But $350 to play games = sale?

I can't understand this line of thinking. Is $50 such a huge gap?  That's less than the price of a game.  That's less (or the same) as a years worth of Live.

Why yes, $350 to play games = sale. That price made me feel better about spending my hard-earned cash to buy a next-gen console

That's right.  I'm always forgetting that the PS3 has no games.  Roll Eyes

You brought up the question about whether a $50 price difference is important. It IS for some people. There's something about a $400 price point that makes people say "OMG that's expensive" while a $350 price point makes them say "well, that's not too bad". I brought up nothing about the PS3 not having any games to play. In fact, I think it has some GREAT games to play! The $400 barrier is still a barrier to me and quite a few other people.

Just wait. When Sony drops the PS3 price to $350 or less you will see more people posting, saying "Hey, I just got my PS3! What games should I buy?"


+1  400 Is to much for me to spend on a console/Blu-Ray player.   If the PS3 hits a 299.00 price point I might make the jump, but at it's present price point  I can't do it.

Stupid question:

Do I need to complete the entire demo before I can save? Or can I save after each mission? Or anywhere? I'm hoping it's not the first choice as I've not the time to play through in one sitting... plus I'm currently sharing my PSP with my son until he replaces his lost/stolen unit.

If I can save after each mission, how do I save? I'm pretty sure I've tried every button combo I can think of.

it only gave me the option of saving once I bet the last boss.  So yeah I think you have to complete the demo before you can save.

I never want to hunt for torpedoes that are speeding towards my crippled carrier while it's preparing for warp jump (Starlancer and Freespace)

I never want to grind XP , reputation, or gold

I never want to deal with save points

I never want to deal with cheating AI

I shouldn't have to raid or be a dedicated PvPer to get gear that equal to either playerbase

Ok.  Me not smrt.  When I try to download the demo from the Playstation store (gellar's link) I download a 1kb .xpd file.  Also, I'm not seeing a link to a downloader.  I have also had little success accessing the playstation store from my PSP directly.  I apologize for derailing the thread, but would someone mind explaining it to me as you would to a child.  A not particularly bright child.  TIA.

Yeah, you need PS downloader to grab the demo. Took me awhile to figure it out as well.  Should be a link somewhere on the website to d/l the installer.

here it is  it stupid where they hide the link

I've been having intermittent "fever" problems as well. Mainly it involves keeping the fever once it first starts. I think the key is to keep imagining the same song that the patapons sing when in normal mode in response to your drumbeat. Use that to determine when to start drumming again

I.e.
normal mode
you on keypad: [] [] [] ()
patapons sing: pata pata pata pon

once they get into fever mode
you on keypad: [] [] [] ()
patapons: blahblahblahblah! FEVAHHH!!!
you in your head: pata pata pata pon
once your internal song is done you start pressing buttons for the next drum command.


I found that playing with a headset on helps me keep the fever alive that much longer.  psp speakers are poor for playing this game.   once, i tried the headset i was able to get alot of materials from the tree
