Oh, I've been meaning to say, I had this terrible premonition that, when GH: Van Halen sees commercial release it'll have better graphics and/or more songs.

I mean, the only other option is that Activision seriously thinks that people will pay $50 for that game.

And they'd be right.  Really hate that I missed the freebie.  Wanna send me your free copy?

Nah. It's fun, it's just very crudely done.

But hey, maybe it'll be $30-$40... and maybe I'll stop making dirty jokes.

The ultro-classic "Cheat on the Church" hit RBN. Nostalgiofun to the max!

The impending release of TTFAF has me booting up RB3 and checking out some of my backlog. I just played "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" by Meat Loaf and then "Airbrushed" by Anamanaguchi and was almost crying from the awesome. This is why rhythm games are #1 in my heart: they can deliver that feeling over and over again whereas it's an extreme rarity in other games. The only things that ever come close are Shinji Mikami games and Shu Takumi games (particularly Ghost Trick) and I suppose the endings of SMRPG and FFIX and maybe the FFVI opera scene. That's ten or so times in my entire life for non-rhythm while in Space Channel 5, for instance, you feel that way through the ENTIRE GAME.

Extremely good matches in fighting/FPS/RTS can feel very good too, but that's sort of a different feeling. More adrenaline and less tingling.

From which component of rhythm games do you get that feeling? Is it from the musical aspect, where you're enjoying the actual song so much it makes the experience so special? Or is it the technical part, that you're nailing difficult rhythms through a full combo? I understand both sides, I'm curious which one's driving you more.

GTR SOLO D of "Operation Ground and Pound" is the hardest motha****in' sequence of notes I've ever seen in an electronic guitar rhythm music videogame. I haven't been this flummoxed by a chunk of a song since "Jordan" (accounting for skill inflation).

Harmonix just said this:

"Next Tuesday we'll be releasing the single most requested song in 3+ years of tracking"

So, I haven't kept up with the songs released, but what would you guess it is? I would figure smething classic, hit the widest audience. Something like Bohemian Rhapsody, but I feel like that's already been done.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" is in RB3, yeah. There's an achievement for getting perfect harmonies throughout the entire song, too.

I need to play more RB3.

Also, rereading this thread, the bit about the effects pedal port on the 360 Guitar Hero controller is funny, because the beatmania IIDX home controllers have the same thing for the same reason (though, it would've been used for beatmania III, which never got a home port).
