I never used the wired one with 2, but the GH3 controller is fantastic!
11603  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Some 360 demo impressions! on: October 29, 2007, 11:58:32 PM
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!!

Ok I just tried the first song on Medium and it kicked my butt!  It said 83% of notes hit, but added that 4th color really is a doozy!  I think the notes came faster, too!

How do most of you play? Standing up or sitting down?

This question has probably come up before. I play standing up, and after playing for about 5 hours today my legs are sore. I tried playing while sitting down but found I did not do as well.

I've been playing standing up in rocker pose!!! headbang

not sure if this has been answered..but will there be a GH3 game on its own,without the new guitar and you can play with the old guitar?...just that if i did get it,i wouldnt want all these guitars everywhere in my room
(been playing GH2 today...im still shit at it)

the game by itself is available at any store that's selling the bundle.  i picked up the stand-alone 360 version and have been playing with my GH2 Xplorer all afternoon...works great

now i'm curious to see if they go back and release GH2 for the 360 on its own so people who have the GH3 Les Paul can go back and play it if they haven't already.  as of now, you can only buy GH2 360 with the guitar.

I hope they do!  I'm having such a blast playing this I'm going to want 2 also!
11609  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GHIII impressions thread on: October 29, 2007, 01:36:04 AM
I've been playing for about 5 hours and I totally love this game.  I'm playing on easy and I've done about 11 songs.  I keep going back and trying to do better.  I'm scared to try Medium!!!  What a blast!!!!

Hey guys, when you say HO/PO what does that mean in-game?

Hammer on/Pull off.

What does that mean in-game?  Is it just using the whammy bar?


Also has anyone tried to link their account online?  I get invalid slot token when I try and enter mine.

Can a local second player not earn achievements? My brother is over here with me and is signed in on his local profile on my 360, but he can't get any achievements to unlock in co-op, like we could in GHII.

Anybody?????????

I dunno man, I'm only playing solo.

For people who suck at GH like myself, I lost to Tom Morello a couple of times (on Easy) and after 3 losses it said that I was getting owned and did I want to skip him?  I kept on trying, but it's nice to know that it won't block you if you just can't do the battles.
11614  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GHIII impressions thread on: October 28, 2007, 07:36:32 PM
Well I've never played a GH game before today, but I'm playing the first song on Easy and I'm head banging with a sh**-eating grin on my face.  What a fun concept this is!!!!

Hey all, I was looking at the Best Buy ad for today and I see that there's some Best Buy exclusive code to unlock the Medal of Homer level.  Is this really what it sounds like?  You cannot play a whole mission from the game unless you buy it from Best Buy?  Does anyone have more detail on this?

Hey guys, sorry for the thread Necro.

I've been back on the Dead Rising kick lately and I have a question.  I get my ass handed to me by most bosses.  Did most of you play through a time or two to build up your stats before really killing most of the bosses?  I'm wondering if my character is just too weak to handle them on the first play through.

Thanks much!

I'll be buying this for sure when it's released.  I doubt I'll be getting Mass Effect though, at least not for some time.

It's definitely arriving now.  Best Buy had a mountain of big shipping boxes marked Red Octane, so it's in back rooms.

Anyone check their local Sears yet or is this an isolated incident or a viral marketing ploy?

I just went to the Sears by work and they don't even carry video games.

Do those licenses come with any extras, like HL2 Deathmatch or something?

Just the actual HL2 game and Ep1 game.

I have gifts for both if anyone still needs them.

wait a second....

it seems all of the uproar is over quickplay co-op.

Curious why it is such a big deal when you can just go with multiplayer co-op....

My understanding was that my buddy was mad that when you do co-op you can only do so at the difficulty level that the song was unlocked at.  So if someone is expert and the other guy is normal, and the expert guy unlocked the song, they can only play on expert instead of selecting a difficulty level for each.

This doesn't affect me, I won't be playing MP at all, but it was something he mentioned being upset about and it made no sense to me.

If there's money to be made, resources will be found.  The bad news is that doesn't mean that KOTOR 3 would be any good.  Hell, we saw how they screwed up the ending in KOTOR2.  I think the only real chance of us seeing a KOTOR3 is through the success of this MMO, assuming it is real. smile

Right, but KOTOR 2 *was* a success (at least financially) but, three years on, and no sequel is in sight while Lucasarts has pumped out numerous Battlefront and Lego Star Wars sequels in the mean time.  I'm guessing that they asked Bioware to do KOTOR 3 single player, Bioware countered with an offer to do it as an MMO (giving Bioware a step up on their first MMO foray) and Lucasarts decided to just let that stand as KOTOR 3. 

I'd almost say that a KOTOR MMO failure would be more likely to get us a new KOTOR single player game.

I thought KotOR 2 was a bust at the end because they rushed it out the door, not because Obsidian wasn't a capable dev.

BTW, still looking for an answer to #6!

One more.

9. I remember reading reports about some 360's eating discs. Is it still not a good idea to have the 360 stand on its side? (like the Wii) Is there any cooling benefit/detriment to doing so?


I am not sure what you mean by 6.  If you have a wired connection to the Xbox, it should work just fine.  The only wireless adapter you can use is the MS one, but it's rather expensive. 

As for 9, I lay mine down flat, but not because of disc eating fears, but because when you stand it upright, you completely block off an entire side of vents.  For a machine that's prone to overheating, it seems foolish to even think about standing it upright and blocking off more ventilation.
