i am not very good at guitar hero...but,i am a big fan of Aerosmith,went to see them here in manchester,UK in 1997(just before 'dont wanna miss a thing' was released i think),i have most of their stuff(one or two compilations havent made it into my collection,because i had all the songs)...so i will prolly pick this up...be good to see which version of 'walk this way' will be used...Aerosmiths?,or Aerosmiths with Run DMC?..or maybe both,they both have the cool guitar riff

...still,i hope they have an 'easy' setting,so i can at least see/hear/play the  majority of the songs..the easy setting would be for people like me,Aerosmith fans,but not so much Guitar hero fans,LOL

GH games are more for the casual crowd I think than the ubers who make the youtube vids.  There will definitely be an Easy setting.

Maybe Neversoft is learning better note charts.  Dream On was fun to play even on Hard mode and it was not too difficult.  I got 5 stars and I think I've only done that with a handful of songs in GH3 on Hard.

Do you have Rhythm? hehe. But seriously, you could try breaking the songs down in chunk. I never count or anything in these songs, I go solely by muscle memory. But i hear this helps people out. is it offbeat kick pedal notes? I find myself wondering what's up until I noticed that im hitting the kick pedal at the wrong time. The timing window is no more harsh than that of the guitar.

Well I am a 30 y.o. white guy, so as much rythmn as my body can carry.  But seriously, easy is really easy, even if you've never played drums.  I don't feel like I cannot keep up with what the notes are, it's like I hit the pad but the game registers a miss.
11205  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rock Band Impressions! on: February 16, 2008, 06:53:13 AM
After playing with the drums for about 3 hours tonight, I am frustrated to all end.  I messed with calibrating for quite a bit tonight in hopes it would help out, but the damn drums are punishing.  There's barely a millisecond sweet spot to hit the note and the dual notes are ridiculous in their leeway for hitting them on time.  There was at least 5 times in each song I wanted to snap my drumsticks in half wondering how that note did not register.
11206  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rock Band Impressions! on: February 16, 2008, 02:33:57 AM
According to Joystiq, here's next week's DLC because of the Monday Holiday....3 buys for me!!!!

Individual Songs

    * Sex Type Thing - Stone Temple Pilots (160 MS points/ $2)
    * El Scorcho - Weezer (160 MS points/ $2)
    * Why Do You Love Me - Garbage (160 MS Points / $2)
11207  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rock Band Impressions! on: February 15, 2008, 11:01:22 PM
How hard do I need to his the drums to get them to register?  Are you guys smackin gthe crap out of them or tapping, or..?


EDIT:  Ok it looks like the drums are hitting properly, so that means I'm just drum stoopid.  Any one have a suggestion for where I can read a good drum tutorial?  The in-game stuff was not helpful.

Do you think the PS3 ourselling the 360 had anything to do with the 1st party or 3rd party exclusives?  It definitely did not.


I think it was Blu-Ray.

If I get a BR player, you can be sure it'll also be a PS3, so that I can also play the exclusive game on it.

Also, ATB your avatars scare me.
11209  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Game over? Netflix goes Blu-Ray Exclusive (Walmart Too) on: February 15, 2008, 05:50:56 PM
Of all the signs, I'd say that Walmart one is the most telling.  Get me a BR player, STAT!

You know, if Neversoft is doing this Aerosmith game and GHIV, does that mean IV is automatically at a disadvantage?

11213  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Guitar Hero: Aerosmith Edition on: February 15, 2008, 04:19:39 PM
Not my favorite choice of band, but Aerosmith has some fun songs and I'm totally hooked on these guitar games, so I'm sure I will get it.

And the GH series isn't going anywhere.  What are you guys going to do if Neversoft learns form the critique and releases a game you all liked as much as Gh2? 
11214  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rock Band Impressions! on: February 15, 2008, 04:15:10 PM
Well I tried to manually do it, but after teh side ways test, I couldn't even tell if the up down test was even registering. frown

There's a hack and slash game on there.....Arcadia or something?

There's also a new RTS game that just went online this week I believe.  Sorry, I can't recall the name.

Quote from: Chaz on February 14, 2008, 06:21:03 PM

Actually, I've found the vocals to be slightly more sensitive to calibration than the drums, it's just that the vocal calibration issues only stand out on songs with a lot of short words like Here It Goes Again.

When you calibrate, I'd also use a controller's face button to do the "strum with the beat" phase.  It always winds up more accurate than strumming or even hitting a drum.  Then, once you've done that, note what the offset is, and write it down.  Later, you can adjust it up or down to fine-tune.

Sorry if this is a dumb question Chaz, but do you mean the ABXY buttons on the middle of the drum kit and not the skins?
11220  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rock Band Impressions! on: February 14, 2008, 05:51:38 PM
Thanks!

I also wanted to say again for emphasis that El Scorcho RULES!!!  I hope that list is legit, there's multiple buys on there for me.
11221  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Question on 5.1 sound on: February 14, 2008, 04:45:30 PM
Hey guys, I got a q on a 5.1 setup, or more precisely, a 3.1 setup.  If you have a speaker system that is a center, two fronts, and a sub, but you set your source output to 5.1, will you lose the rear surround audio completely, or will some of it come from the fronts?

Also, if you put the source audio to stereo, will any sound come from the center channel or is a center useless unless you use the full 5.1?
11222  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rock Band Impressions! on: February 14, 2008, 04:06:24 PM
Thanks guys....I'm going to try recalibrating.  I knew I wouldn't be Animal or anything but I swear I'm hitting those notes and I'm missing like crazy...it's silly.

So do you guys have to recalibrate every time depending on what instrument you are using?

Also,  there's  rattle inside my RB guitar, right out of the box.  Do you think I should send it back already? =\

Hey guys is it normal when you first play on the drums to miss tons of notes even though you feel like you are nailing them?

Also that DLC stuff looks HOT!!

I'll believe it when I can get more confirmation.  Rumors...

I don't think this is rumor...it was revealed in a chart in an EA analyst meeting.

(not highlighted, but look for Bioware)

Last night I completed my 5 star of all medium songs after finally slaying Raining Blood and Knights of Cyndonia.  I owned One, also, that was fun.  I am on tier 4 or 5 on Hard and the songs are so difficult now, I fail them all at 10%.  Pretty happy about the 5 star on all medium though biggrin
