321  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii] Where to start for Rock Band/Guitar Hero newb on: May 28, 2009, 02:20:27 AM
DISCLAIMER: I AM IN THE MINORITY ON THIS ONE.

Now that the statement is over: I decided to go for World Tour and then pick up Rock Band 2.  I did it for the compatability issue so that I can use the instruments on both games.

Best advice I've heard: Check the available tracks and get the game that has the songs you want to play.

I didn't realize so many people disliked Superman Returns.  I thought it was pretty good.  Wha' happen'?

After the trailers made it look action packed it turned into a snooze fest. Luthor, while played well by Spacey, was a rehash if the Hackmans villain from the first film, superman junior, stalker Superman, he whole OKG he may be dead in what is supposed to be the start of a new franchise and Superman the speech giver are a few things I can think of off the top of my head. Heck, Superman 3 had more menacing moments in it.

The big problem with making a Superman movie is that it is nearly impossible to find a "challenge" for Superman. "Oh no, there's Kryptonite nearby...again..."

Smallville at least recognizes this and has found an ok way to deal with it. Clark wont kill anybody, and always looks for a different way to find a solution. Unfortunately the last few seasons have used this as a crutch, with all of the secondary characters standing on the sidelines screaming "Kill him/her/it Clark!" and when he refuses they call him weak...until he finds a way to do it without killing he/she/it.

/derail

There are 75 years of SUPERMAN stories around, some of them quite good without the use of Kryptonite.  There ought to be one good movie in all that. If they REALLY wanted to do the first Superman movie (Pre-Crisis and Pre-Byrne) again (without doing that movie) they should try "Last Son of Krypton" by Elliot S! Maggin.  The not-quite novelization from 1978. http://www.adherents.com/lit/bk_Maggin_LastSon.html

Oh, and btw the name for real fans is "Trekker" smile

Feh, I've been a Trekkie since before we were required to call ourselves Trekkers.

That's how I recall it; "trekkies" are TRUE fans... "trekkers" are TNG upstarts......     icon_lol

I really hate comic book 'deaths'.  It's so fucking cheap.  Why bother killing the character in the first place?  I know about the money aspect of it and all, but still.

I haven't read consistantly in a while, and I've given up continuity getting in the way of a good story.

We all know that eventually, Bruce Wayne will be back as Batman.  The question for his 'death" and "rebirth" is "Will it be a good ride until that happens?"

Those are great songs, but there's a lot of piano in them, especially in Golden Slumbers.  I don't know how you'd do that in a Rock Band setting.

Change the game a bit to tap out the piano ala GH?
326  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Speculating on track listing for Beatles: Rock Band on: April 15, 2009, 01:15:43 PM
No mention of "Golden Slumbers/ Boy You're Gonna Carry That Weight / The End"?

I think those (as a group) would make a great addition.  Seems to me it covers the 3 main struments + Harmonization on the last set of vocals. Plus the horns would give a break to the palyers for a few bars.

Differn't strokes.

I enjoy my Wii.  I think its more that I am so tired of button mashing to make different arrangements of pixels move.  I didn't even buy a console for myself between the Atari 5200 and the Wii.

It may also be that I am not an active person generally, so I enjoy getting up.  Most of the Wii action is GH:WT and DDR. Right now I'm looking foward to the new tennis games and boxing games that will take advantage of the wiimotion plus dongle.

RPGs, adventures, non-action oriented stuff is for my PC.  FPS -- goes either way.  Generally I like the mouse+keyboard, unless you're talking about RE4.

The best ending ever was the finale of Six Feet Under.  I've seen it at least five or six times, and I tear up every single time.

That was one in my top few.  Others

Newheart and the dream sequence

Babylon 5, right up there with Six Feet Under.

Jericho is up there.

What about customizing your band members?  Does either game allow you to customize what your band members look like and wear?  I have young kids and I don't want them watching skimpy dressed or tattoed band members on the TV.  Really it is the wife that is concerned with that.

I'm sure both games allow the band members to be customized.  Now, as to whether or not the customizing options are appropriate for your family, I can't tell you.

333  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Which old PC Game Developer would you bring back? on: March 04, 2009, 03:16:53 AM
Cinemaware --  I loved the Amiga versions of their games.  I am the guy who bought the New Defender of the Crown game, but I think they missed out in the last incarnation.  Keep the minigame/board game aspect and do the controls for the Wii!!


Rocket Ranger with motion controls!!

Add our family to the KR list as well.  I prefer the cartoon people to the vids.  Also, I like the Duets in KR better.

I'd love to see this work.. but then I'd love a Green Hornet movie much like the NOW comics of the 80's.. family dynesty and all that.

I always thought of Justice League: New Frontier as a Hal Jorden/GL POV story.

339  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Looking for Wii adventure/detective game suggestions on: February 04, 2009, 06:50:57 PM
I've seen a few adventure games on the Wii, not sure about the appropriate level for a 7 and 9 year old though.  Have you tried Lego Star Wars?

I know there is the Harvy Birdman game; at least two Agatha Christie adventures (And Then There Were None Evil Under the Sun); Zach and Wiki might fit the bill...

I'm waiting on the "Broken Sword" director's cut to come out

Been in, but it was 20 years ago (1983-1987).  I doubt that the experience would be the same.

Of course, I doubt the experience of High School is the same as 20 yrs back; first job; bar scene...... you get the idea.

What I like is the way states criminalize moving performances from one place to another. Here is a section of the code from Alabama:

 "Manufacture, distribute, transport or wholesale any article with the knowledge that the sounds or performances are so transferred without consent of the owner."

Since it says nothing about copies, I can't figure out how it works.

Hmm...   so close...

I guess "acquiesce" is what the citizens under that govt. would do.  But, what do you call what the government is doing in taking advantage of the citizens' trends to acquiesce?


Typical.

It's been available for Pre-order at Best Buy (BB - military conventions of listing acronyms dies hard) for a while.  $49.99 (I think).  $10.00 prebuy box gets you a T-Shirt.  I was tolled that BB expects to have the prebuy boxes until the game ships.
