My copy of GH2 that I bought used from Amazon arrived and I have that to compare now.  I like the look of 3 better.  Note that 3 was the first one I played.  I also find that 2 is much easier so far than 3 is.  I started on Medium right off the bat this time and I got a 500 note streak on the first song.  I think my best in 3 is around 350.  I've gotten 5 stars on just about all the songs that I've tried on Medium.  I have to really try hard to get 5 stars in 3.  I also beat the first song on Hard mode in 2, where in 3 I failed the first song on Hard after 4%.

Either way I'm glad to have more songs to play...I'm really enjoying this game-type!

Is COD4 MP like Halo where you can get shot 10 times, or is it a more realistic 1 shot-1 kill type of game?

That's it. I have cash money (thank you mileage reimbursement!) to get a 360 (the pro pack, with the 2 games). I won't have an HDTV until my current 40" standard RPTV gives it up. It does have component video, though, so I suppose it's not a total POS.

I plan on heading to BB today, getting that pack, with the extended warranty.

I'm wondering how I'm gonna manage the cables now, with the Wii and PS2. Hmm.

I bought one of those cable switchers at one point, I think it was from Pelican?  It was only ~$20 at amazon.

Turtle, the issue is if you want to send audio and video to separate locations,
Like audio to a receiver but video directly to a TV.

That's an issue?  WTF?

gellar

If you buy MS' cable then it has a dongle that allows you to split audio and video.  Otherwise, the hdmi port is too close to the audio-video port and if you use a regular hdmi cable, you cannot also use the audio-video slot.

That's bloody STUPID.  Marks up another reason why I will not be purchasing a replacement 360 once MS decides to stop repairing my broken ones.

gellar

wait hold on, I think there is some misinformation here...I really don't understand what some people earlier in this thread are complaining about.  the new 360s *come with both an HDMI cable and the audio adapter cable/box that has optical out on it*

there is no problem using both the HDMI port and the A/V port.  my friend has a 360 Elite and this is exactly what he does.  there is no need to buy anything extra whatsoever, except for an optical cable if you don't already have one

Hmmm, my hdmi pro came with a dongle that allows you to use the component cables and the optical out, not hdmi and optical out.  I don't have a receiver, but I tried to connect both my regular hdmi-only cable and the pack-in audio-video cable and they can't both be plugged in at the same time.

EDIT:  the Elite comes with the hdmi dongle, but the hdmi pro models (at least when I got mine in August) only come with component cables.

That article states that the game will also be sold seperately and that the GH3 controller will work with it.  So, I can just buy the game and just play guitar tracks solo?

You can play a solo guitar campaign, a solo drum campaign, and a solo singing campaign.  If you're asking what you can do with the RB standalone game and a GH3 controller, yes you can play the solo guitar stuff. 

Thank you!

I'm thinking of jumping into the whole Xbox Live Arcade and getting a few games on there as well as the DLC for Marvel:UA. With the high probability that my 360 will eventually fail me, how do you get your downloads back if your system has to be replaced? I assume you wouldn't have to buy them all over again?

I just want to make sure that what I buy stays "bought" regardless of any issues that might come up with my system.

The content is tied to your gamertag, and if you had a 360 go belly up, all you would have to do is sign in again, on the new or refurbished console, and download your stuff again. You will NEVER have to rebuy it.

What about your gamer score?  Does that get populated if your console dies a horrible death and you need a new one?

cool...means you either played against one of the developers, or someone who has beaten one of them in the past.  if you play online enough, you're bound to come across someone you can beat for the achievement eventually.

Ah, I didn't know you could get it from a player who had got it before.  The guy was playing bass on co-op and I just had more points that he did.  A neat surprise, for sure.

Played the demo some tonight at Bestbuy though I need to put more time into it to make sure it doesn't make me motion sick like the Guitar Hero 3 did. But if I do get it I'm relying on Costco, they had tons of Guitar Hero 3 on the day it came out.
Wow...motion sick?  Really?  That is the first I have heard of that for GH.

I don't get sick but there is one thing that really screws me up...it's when the angle is from the strum bar and you are looking up the guitar at your toon.  I miss notes every time it does that.

By the way, for those complaining about not being able to play the coop only songs, you can use a code to unlock them in Quick Play mode.  Doesn't affect your career or anything, so I don't really consider it cheating.  The cheat is:

(YO)(RB)(RO)(GB)(RY)(YO)(RY)(RB)(GY)(GY)(YB)(YB)(YO)(YO)(YB)YR(RY)RYO

The colors in parentheses need to be played at the same time.


Thank you!  I was upset about not being able to play these songs either as I'll never co-op.

I think it was KD or th'F that was saying the demo was the worst possible snip they could have released.

I am also a huge Simpsons fan, but $60 is too much for this during this holiday season.  I'll be renting it for sure though.

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!

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.
