I loved this game.  What amazing characters and story.

New demo for the demo junkies like me.  I am not sure what this is, but I'm downloading now.

Sucks for the guy who's selling his early release copy on eBay.  Hopefully the folks who are going to bid will read about that first.

That's good to know about GH2 and the controller. Shame it's still $50 though otherwise I'd grab it.

Yeah it was too expensive new for me, so I just ordered it on Amazon marketplace for $27 shipped!

Hey guys I have a Q about MP.  Do I get to select the difficulty level to play at?  I suppose there's no way for some expert to login and smoke you, but at least I would be able to participate at a difficulty level I feel comfortable with.

I think Battle Mode and Faceoff allow each player to pick their own level when you play.  Pro Faceoff's level is determined by whoever created the game, I believe.

Thank you!

Hey guys, does anyone have any insider dirt on a game-only version of GH2 for the xbox coming out?  I'd like to eventually get that to play those songs, too!
11329  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: The Half-Life 2 Steam Giveaway! on: November 01, 2007, 02:33:55 PM
Ok Ep1 and HL2 back up for grabs.  Please is you PM me, make sure to send me your steam email address.

Edit:  EP1 taken

Well at one point it looked like I might get the stepping razor achievement, but alas, I did not.  I got a couple new MP medals.  I think it was a neat idea.  Hopefully they'll do more stacked games like this for future events.
11332  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GHIII impressions thread on: November 01, 2007, 02:27:19 PM
I have moved on to Medium now and it's not as bad as I first thought!  Some of the songs actually seem easier to me since the notes hit more realistically.  I'm really enjoying playing through the songs.  I tried a song on hard last night and I got through 4% before I failed.  I don't know if I'll even be able to play at that level.  It's the first time I failed any song at all.

I have a question for the people who don't like this game.  What is so much better about GH2 that you all dislike GH3 so much?  This is my first GH game and I find it to be super fun.  I see a lot of negative comments here about how bad GH3 is and how Rock Band is teh win.  I'm curious why that is.
11333  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The next 'Hot Coffee' - Manhunt 2 on: November 01, 2007, 02:24:09 PM

I was able to get the 2 for 1 achievement thanks to this game type.  They really are geared towards getting those really hard ones.

I decided to finally get this game today.  I haven't ever played GH before.  It IS fun - but oh so frustrating!  This thing has a steep learning curve for me.  I can get through some of the easy songs ok, but when a chord comes up with notes that aren't next to each other I'm toast!

I'm new to the game also and was a bit worried about even being able to handle it on easy. Fortunately I've been able to 5 Star most songs on easy and started practicing last night with Medium songs, which is a little tougher but I think I'll be able to get the hang of it. I honestly couldn't imagine ever playing this game on Hard or Hardest. It is a very fun game though, and I'm definitely looking forward to them adding new content and grabbing that Union Jack faceplate when it comes out. smile

+1 my thoughts exactly.  Except for the faceplate thing slywink

Network. Talk to work friends, personal friends, particularly older people who probably have done some estate planning. Find out who had a good experience at a reasonable price. Seriously word of mouth works best here.

the game only gets better as you develop your skills...feels more and more like you're really playing the songs as you work your way up the difficulty levels.  it's pretty amazing how the motions that feel so awkward and impossible at first become second nature with a little practice.  as for the hand cramps, i actually felt like those go away after you get  yourself conditioned a little.  just try to relax your grip on the controller and take breaks if you get really sore.  you'll be able to play multi-hour marathons in no time

I just started in earnest in Medium tonight and while very tough, the songs are very enjoyable and the notes seem to his more realistically with the song.  This game is so much fun!

Come on Giants.  You know what you need to do.

You cannot afford him. Even in your dreams.

They paid Barry $15+ mil last year.  They have over 25,000 season ticket holders.  There is no more Barry (Bonds).  They have almost as much operating income (in 06) than the Cubs.  They have the 7th largest revenue in MLB.  Despite everyone (including the Giants themselves) wanting to paint the picture of them being a small market club... they are in fact making mad cash.  That ballpark helps immensely, since Bay Area fans want to go there even if the team sucks.  A-Rod would bring in more money than he cost.

The Giants can easily afford to pay him what he wants.  It's just a matter of whether they want to.

The Giants stadium is fun to go to and I don't even like baseball.

I thought it was interesting that both games have some of the same songs.  Quite a few, I think.

Filters should be easily fixable in a patch, amirite?

Also, when you guys play MP, do you have to play the same difficulty?  Is there a way to only play people at the same difficulty you are?

I'm running the demo at 1280x1024 with everything on High and no AA or AF and it's smooth as butter.

Rig is 2.4 GHZ Core 2 Duo with 2 GB Ram and 8800 GTS.

Wow looks awesome and the vibe is killer!

Just finished playing a best of three pro face-off against some dude.  After whooping him on the first song, he proceeded to tell me how it was on for song #2 and that I didn't stand a chance against him.  No one had ever beaten him on Cult of Personality yet.  After I stomped him by nearly 100k, I found out that I was apparently a cheating faggot, my wife was a dirty whore, I was a fucking douchebag, and I had no business bringing my sorry cheating ass on XBL.   I'm still not quite sure how one "cheats" at GHIII, but that's apparently irrelevant.  I'm suddenly remembering why I've steered clear of multiplayer...

However, me and The Grue tore up a couple Expert co-op songs, including one 5-star.  Now that was fun.  smile

The best thing you can do on XBL is mute all voice coms.

Dead rising is simply awesome, I really like that game.  It's a platinum game now, too.  So you should be able to get it for cheap. 

I didn't like either of the Kameo demos.

I liked the Rainbow Six: Vegas demo a lot.

From a long term PC gamer, I just liked downloading any demos for a console.  I pretty much download it all and delete as needed!!
