So far my main crew has been Ashley and Tali (grrl power!  icon_lol), poor Liara, Rex, Garrus and Kaiden have been mostly bopping around the Normandy as those 2 seem to be an effective combination so far.  The weapons available after you hit a million creds are very nice, maybe too nice  icon_wink

That's been my combination as well.  Tali is the only one that has high enough hacking and electronic skills to open stuff, and Ashley is a freaking tank.  Haven't run into too many problems yet, although a little behind you level-wise (32).

I'm playing as a Vanguard and I use Wrex and Tali.  It's pure ownage!

Well after hearing all the chatter here about how the note charts in RB were much better than GH3, I decided to get the game-only version to get some more tunes.

First off, I take back my comments about how the game doesn't look good.  Once I got this home on my LCD TV I see that the animations and backgrounds are amazing and while the fret is simplistic, it actually helps a noob like me out to focus on what to strum next. 

Rock Band is much, much easier than the other 2 GH games that I've played (2 and 3).  I was able to 5 star a couple songs on hard and I can't even crack into hard on GH3.  It seemed like the frist few hard songs in RB were tailored for learing how to move your hands, rather than just throwing your ass in the fire and bringing down walls of notes.  I don't think the difficulty is a bad thing, I rather like being able to pick it up a notch and not be totally overwheled.  I was just surprised at how barren the note charts are in medium.

Depending on how pricey the individual instruments are when announced next year, I may even pick up a drum set to give that a whirl.

Overall I really like it.  I really like GH3 also.  Fun times to be getting into this whole rhytmn game thing smile

No encounter ever plays out the same and no two gamers will play BioShock the same way.

Do we need to set up a poll to see how many people used a CONTROLLER to play the game? That would be the "same way" to me. Tongue

Standard HDMI also runs the audio through it.  I would expect it to work that way on the Xbox 360 as well.

Only works if your receiver accepts HDMI.  However if you are using optical out, on the 360 is actually on the cable not the console. 

Or if you're a sad sap like me and use audio through the TV.  1 HDMI cable is all you need.

Get a $5 cable from newegg or amazon.  It's the same quality as the $100 at BB.  It will look basically the same as component, but it's audio and video in 1 cable, so that's nice.

and the one big one im really looking forward to is conan - though im not sure how far out this one is, and almost fully expect it to be delayed

I played the demo for Conan, and it just wasn't anything like I thought it would be.  The combat was over-simplistic, the animations were stiff, etc.  I was looking forward to it until I played that demo.  frown

I think he means the MMO...is that coming out for the 360, too?

Since this is an impressions thread.  I will say that I saw RB for the first time at BB tonight and I watched a couple guys play guitar and drums.  I can't believe how simplistic the interface is.  I definitely like the circle notes and design on the fret board that the GH series has.  I never played it and it looked fun enough, I was just shocked at how bad it looked.


So who is paying you to say this? Sorry but GHIII looks like crap compared to Rock Band.

No one, I just finally saw RB in action for the first time at Best Buy.

Yeah to add, that 5th button just ruins me.  I could deal with a setting between medium and hard that still used 4 buttons, but was faster or something.

I have a spoiler-ish question about game length.... 
Spoiler for Hiden:
I see there are 3 achievements for completing certain worlds.  I did Feros and Virmire and there's just Novaria left to do.  However, my way zoomed out galaxy is 3/4 empty....are there more worlds that will show up?

On another note....I've found that I've put my self into a position that I wish there was a more difficult setting in the first playthrough. Once you are at around level 30, well equipped and have a balanced squad, the combat is over too quickly.

I thought you could bump it up via the Options menu at any time. Hardened/Insane are locked at the beginning, but I thought there was a Veteran mode or something right off...

And the 1 million credit thing - Yes and yes. Just make sure you visit the Spectre Quartermaster (downstairs at C-Sec) as well as the one on the Normandy once you've hit it. The Spectre one especially. biggrin

Ah ok I thought that's what it was.  I visited the Normandy guy, I see it's time to go back to the Citadel!!
11632  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What is your GH/RB skill level? on: November 27, 2007, 09:21:47 PM
GH2 I can do some songs on Hard without missing 9/10 notes.  Medium is a good balance of hard and doable.
GH3 I can't do crap on Hard.  It's impossible.  Medium is tough, but fun.
Never tried RB.
11633  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect Impressions on: November 27, 2007, 09:20:04 PM

Maybe it was a smaller worm?  A Maw Thrasher?  I found one by a distress beacon, got out of the Mako, and owned it.  I don't know either, but I was wondering why I didn't try this the first time.  I figured my upgrades had something to do with it.

that's the situation where I encountered the worm.  there were a bunch of dead marines lying around and I got a quest to inform the Rear Admiral about finding them.

Yeah that was the second one I came across.  I got out of my vehicle and destroyed that one.  The first one I found ambushed me after I recovered some downed satellite.  It looked exactly the same as the one you listed above.

I also started fighting the real big Geth outside of my vehicle since I can take them down just as fast on foot.
