Hopefully they'll put in the 'analog controls optional' enhancement to Lair. biggrin

there's actually a very good possibility that they will be...

Would be nice if they just release that as a patch and not a pay DLC.  Then I can pick up Lair on the cheap at Amazon and get analog controls without having to pay extra for them.

Especially since, you know, the game sucked.

From what I hear, the controls were the problem.  You fix the controls you fix the game.

why buy it for the PS3 when it's coming out for the 360 too?  slywink

Yeah. I know.  It doesn't make sense. But I want High Definition Movies SO BAD.

Wait a minute. No I don't.

Huh. Guess I'm out.

I've played Gimme Shelter a couple times in solo tour (guitar), but for some reason it won't register on the leaderboards.  Still says I haven't played it.  Strange...

I don't suppose there's any way to correct that, is there?

Depending on your score, if you don't score high enough you won't register on the site.  Otherwise I've found it takes quite some time for the scores to update correctly.

But vegas 1 didn't really have any good unlocks at higher ranks unless you think pink armor is a great reward. 

I hear Hark loves the pink armor.

That's the only reason he was good at the game, he got cheap kills while we laughed at how stupid he looked.  I hope they nerf pink armor.  Nerf melons too while they are at it.

I never used the pink armor, I used the "cotton-candy clouds" camo and blended right in with the decor of your rooms you pussies.

Hey, I like Denon too, but to get HDMI 1.3a inputs, I'd have to go up to the AVR-5803CI.  That's very cool, but has a MSRP of $5200.  That's well out of my range.

Actually...

Tongue

That said I still think if I was going to get one now it would be one of the newer Onkyo series. They're the only affordable receivers that support all the new audio formats on Blu-Ray like DTS-HD and it's Dolby competitor.
Unless I'm reading that wrong, you can't output a non HDMI source through the HDMI connection and you can't use HDMI as the sound cable.  Perhaps I should have said "HDMI 1.3 a inputs with audio and video processing" instead. slywink

Ok my Onkyo 605 can output any video input to the receiver, out to the monitor via HDMI.  For example my cable box goes into my receiver with Component cables, but there's just a single HDMI cable feeding my tv.  I can also use my HDMI cable to pass audio through to the monitor if I don't want to output it to the external speakers.  If that's what you're looking for, then it's available starting at $400.

Ok Chaz, I know you've got all that confidentiality stuff to deal with...but please blink once if you think "Still Alive" is coming soon, twice if it's at least hitting us in April, and thrice if even April is too optimistic.

I cannot answer your question, even in blinks.  For this I am sorry.

The thrash pack is indeed for those looking for a challenge.  These songs, particularly Thrasher, are the most ungodly song in the game, and that includes the Metallica DLC.  They are definitely not for the faint of heart.  Even bass is hard, and the drums are serious too.

EDIT: Something I've always loved about the Harmonix games is including songs I haven't heard of, but that I wind up loving by the time I've played them a few times.  What GH3 taught me is that just because I love a song, doesn't mean it'll be fun to play in the game (Slow Ride).  I will admit that the flaw in that plan is that in a party setting, most people only want to play songs they know, which is unfortunate.  I was at one party where I put on a song I love, but isn't known at all, and one guy failed out within 30 seconds, declared that the song sucked hard, and refused to play it again, then made fun of me for liking it.  A party's a tough crowd.

THANK. GOD.


Also, how have you guys never heard of Paramore or Serj Tankanian(or whatever the spelling is)? I don't dig Serj, in fact I can't stand a lot of SoaD songs. Paramore gets played quite frequently here. Though a local radio station is independantly own and ran by some ex green bayer. So I don't have to deal with shitty play lists. If you even liked CCC a little you should really check out the rest of the album. It's pretty damn good. CCC wouldn't have been my first choice of song from the CD, but whatever.

Yeah they wouldn't know if they didn't listen to the radio.

so how do you like the Onkyo 605 so far?  i've had my eye on that receiver for quite a while now and might pick one up as soon as i get my 'economic incentive' check in a few months...

I'm no audiophile, but it's awesome so far.  I have my ATT Uverse box, 360, and ps3 all going into it and just 1 HDMI cable to the TV.  It's been awesome so far.  No loss in picture quality to my eyes.

it'd be nice if they added in the capability for the blu ray drive to remember where you are on a DVD/BD if you stop the movie and turn off the system so you don't have to skip/fast forward through a disc to find your spot again.  c'mon Sony, even my DVD player from 2000 had the ability to do that  icon_frown

leaving the system on doesn't seem to help either, as I tried it and when I went back a few hours later it started the disc at the beginning.

i have seen this in work just recently while watching farscape.  hit O to back out of playback, then restart fah.  next day, exit fah, select dvd video, and bam! episode starts back up where i left it.  you doing something different like hitting the off switch on the back or something?

I feel like this is a stupid q but what's "fah" ?

TV was 1400 when I got it August of last year.

The Onkyo 605 was on sale at Circuit City when I bought it...it cost me 399.99 + tax

The speakers and sub with associated cabling were $516 total

so minus the TV it was about $1k for the audio.  Again it was only 2 fronts and a sub (and receiver).  For my small room it fits perfect.  I think anything more would have been overkill.  One day when I have a bigger living room area, I hope to just add a center and two surrounds, but keep using the rest of my stuff.

I wanted to update with my purchases....I went with the Onkyo 605 and I got a pair of Level Two Fronts and a Level Two Sub from www.htd.com.  These were added to my 42" Phillips 1080p from Costco.  I'm in nerd heaven these days.

I've had my eye on their site for quite some time and I am not disappointed in the sound.  My living room area is not that big so I decided to just get a pair of speakers instead of trying to get surround sound.

I've gone back and played some games that I had gone through without a good sound system and I'm kicking myself for waiting so long.

The 360 and PS3 (DVD) are running through the system and everything sounds so awesome.  It's great having bass to your gun fights now!!
