601  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Pursuit Force sleep mode? on: March 14, 2006, 07:51:18 PM
You can only go into sleep mode right before the mission starts when it says press start to start mission or when you are in a mission you can''t sleep while in the menus.
602  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero question... on: March 14, 2006, 03:43:00 PM
I do enjoy it more because I am a guitarist but anybody can get into this game.

I recently started playing with headphones and it really changes the game for me.  I really do feel like I am playing.  If you play it without headphones you hear the click of the strum bar but with headphones that goes away and gives you more of a guitar like feeling.


Get this game,  they are going to keep releasing more games so your investment in a controller will be worthwhile.
603  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter Impressions Thread on: March 09, 2006, 03:03:24 PM
The multilplayer last night was awesome had a really great time, it just stunk that we couldn't get more than 4-5 at a time.  If we set respawns to 1 or 2 that would really make us use teamwork alot more, but we do need the time to get used to it.  Being able to see what the other teammates was looking at is awesome it adds so much to the game.  

After multi I tried a little single player and I died like crazy.  I have a hard time finding out where to go and my teammates died easily as well.  It will definately take some time to get used to it.

Yes I finally beat the game on Expert mode.  Took me a month to pass BATM but it has finally been beat.

606  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Fight Night 3 impressions on: February 22, 2006, 03:14:24 PM
I've played about 3 cpu and about 6 online fights.
I have noticed lag on about 2 of the fights but it was only for
about 10 to 15 sec long then back to normal.  

Vs the cpu there is a difference between medium and hard the
boxers are more aggressive and do fight better.

Online is where it is at though.  I've had about 4 knockdowns and one
decision.  My last knockdown came in the last round which I really
needed.  There are not a lot of haymakers landed which is good and
it is really hard to flash ko as well.

I am enjoying this game.

Picked it up and lunch.

Tried medium and hard and they are different. Duran was more aggressive in hard mode than on medium.  I also just stood there and
Duran really put it on me.

611  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I just finished Resident Evil 4 (NGC) - No Spoilers on: February 07, 2006, 07:31:09 PM
I have finished both Eternity and Resident 4 they are both good games.

I hadn't finished a game in a while and I had a day off so I decided that I was going to finish a game so I started and finished that game in one nine hour gaming session.

Resident Evil 4 took me about 4 days but that game is superb.

Good Luck.

Are you guys using a pick.  I can' t imagine not using one on the fast songs doesn't your thumb get tired.

Everyone who comes to my house and plays GH leaves saying they are picking this up.  I also read an article claiming this game is flying off the shelves and is hard to keep in stock.

Keep rocking.

Big week for Guitar Hero fans.

You can finally get your second guitar this Tuesday.  I can't wait.

I had my nephew and his friend over and they loved that game so I am excited I will finally be able to multiplay.  I had actually thought of buying 2 copies of the game but didn't have that much extra to spend.

Whose with me=========== biggrin

621  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: December 07, 2005, 07:49:55 PM
Two weeks ago I had some friends over for an Xbox 360 game night.

It was 3 guys and one's wife, she probably thought she was going to have a boring time because she brought over some college homework.
Well I got them to play Guitar Hero first and the wife ended up playing for about an hour.   She was better than her husband which was pretty funny.

Well now the husband ordered Guitar Hero and it got here yesterday and he spent about  8 hours playing.  The wife had to do homework and was pretty upset she didn't get to play much.  He has ordered a second guitar(RED) but it won't ship until the 12th.

This game is definately GOTY.  It is the funnest time I have had with a video game in ages.  Once you move up to the harder difficulty levels you really feel like you are playing the songs.  

I have played GH more than I have my 360.  What an unbelievable game.



  :x Waiting , Watching :shock:  for the sequel.
622  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / M and L: partners in time! on: December 01, 2005, 05:36:16 PM
I've played about 2 hours and it is great.  

The use of the 2 screens is really good.  The humor is there too the voices they use crack me up especially Baby Luigi.

Battling with all 4 is great but you really have to be on your toes to nail the combinations.
623  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: November 30, 2005, 02:18:15 PM
I finally beat Crossroads on Expert took me about 3 days, I had to play about 4 songs just to get warmed up enough to play it.

The last 5 songs on expert are really going to take me a while, I last about 5 seconds on BATM.
624  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / M and L: partners in time! on: November 29, 2005, 02:22:58 PM
Most definately a pickup.  I haven't beat the first one yet but will go ahead get it.

The DS is really outdoing the PSP in the game department I think I need to change my sig.
625  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: November 29, 2005, 02:21:44 PM
That one Idie song by Artillery is brutal, the fastest song on the game.
I can't wait for an expansion and hopefully they will deliver one soon.

I bought the X360 but none of the games have me really wanting to go back and play like GH.  GOTY for me.
626  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So what did you play over the holiday? on: November 28, 2005, 04:48:04 PM

629  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HDTV on: November 20, 2005, 04:27:03 AM
I wanted an HDTV 2 years ago but they were too expensive so I went and found a DLP front projector the Infocus X1 and couldn't be more pleased.  It does 480p/720p/1080i and it does very well.

If you can't afford a big HDTV right now this maybe your best opportunity. I paid about 950 for everything and have a 100' wide screen tv.

631  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mario Kart DS review [ign] on: November 15, 2005, 09:36:44 PM
Just bought the game at lunch and can't put the game down too bad I'm at work also but there are no patients involved so I don't feel so guilty.

The tracks are wonderful along with the music that goes with them.  My fav so far is the Pinball track it is a lot of fun.

Can't wait till I get home and try multi.

PGR3 who needs it when you got Mario.
632  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Cheap video card? on: November 15, 2005, 12:25:29 AM
I just bought the 6800 GT OC and it fried my 400w power supply.

I played about 5 minutes of Call of Duty when my machine shut off and wouldn't come back on till I replaced the PS.

The 6600 is a good card though.

634  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: November 11, 2005, 02:26:11 PM
I put electric tape on the strum bar(I use a pick) and on the first and last buttons because of losing my place.  The spacing is very different from the guitar so I am having problems because of it.  

I am glad that y'all like it hopefully more and more will buy this game.  I just wish you could by another guitar at the store instead of online.
635  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: November 08, 2005, 07:47:46 PM
Well I beat the game on Hard mode and started the extreme mode and that is going to be impossible.  I haven't earned one 5 star rating yet on any level, I guess I need to go back and get those.

I first tried the extreme level after playing many songs on the medium level and thought there is no way I will ever play any song on extreme.  But since I've beat hard mode I have gotten to the second stage on the extreme.  I just wish you could practice the solos in slow mode because I can't get my hand to move that fast yet.

I hope on the next Guitar Hero they will let you just hit the strum bar as a note and that way you would have six strings to work with.  Now that would be awesome.
636  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: November 03, 2005, 04:00:17 PM
I can only get to the 3rd batch of songs on hard level. The only way I got through those was that I  saved my star power till it got to the solo then used it there so it boosted my level till the chorus started again.  I can't imagine playing these songs on extreme.  That is going to take a lot of playing time.

I agree with IGN's review, I wish it had a practice session where you could slow down the solo because at full speed it is almost impossible.

Hey shon, quick question -

I have a sort of left hand "handicap."  If speaking in terms of an actual guitar, I can't physically wrap my left hand the fret or whatever the hell it's called.  I even really wanted to play the violin and had the same sort of deal where I couldn't properly grasp the fret-thingy very well at all.

Would this also hinder my ability to play Guitar Hero?  Are the "buttons" easy to press and such?


You don't have to press the buttons as hard as you would strings on a guitar or violin but you do have to press 2 buttons at once and they can be far away
so you would have to put your thumb behind the neck at times.  You might
be able to do it without using your thumb, I will try that lunch (maybe) and let you know.
638  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: November 03, 2005, 05:33:59 AM
Well I have played about 3 hours now and my hands are tired.  The game is good but gets hard quick.

I beat the medium difficulty without any problems, but as soon as I got to hard I have barely beat the first 10 songs.  In hard mode they use the fifth button and that is giving me all kinds of trouble.  I am not sure how to use my hands with the buttons.  I play guitar so maybe I am trying to use my pinkie too much but I find myself not knowing were I am on the buttons.  I wish they had more bumps on the buttons, the one on the middle is not enough.

I am having fun with the game and it is a blast to play.  Some of the songs I didn't think I would like are really fun, the Ziggy Stardust song is really fun.  

Hopefully the price will come down so more people will be able to buy.  I can't wait for Guitar Hero 2.

If you never have played guitar it can teach you a little bit.

You won't be learning the actual chords or notes but you will be learning to do rhythm with your right hand and note placment with your left so you will get used to doing different things with each hand.

When you move up levels and actually get to do chords you will be doing some of the basic chords (fifths)  that guitarists actually do.

So no, it won't teach you guitar per se but it can help you with some of the dexterity that you will need to play guitar.
