rocked out....

wow. after inviting a few guests over last night, i can honestly say Rock Band gets my vote for best local multiplayer game of the year. we got through the first 3rd of the world tour mode, after getting warned that we coulden't progress any further unless we stepped up to medium difficulty. (those fucking drums are HARD!!!!) the one knock on the game is how much repetition there is. for every venue or city you unlock, you get only one or 2 new songs, and your sets get filled in with songs you've already played. i can't remember exactly how many times i played Maps or Creep, but it was easily over 12 each. my brother played bass, my wife sang, and our friend Ellen rocked the guitar on expert. she made a few observations on the arrangement of the notes, saying that on some songs it was harder than Guitar Hero 3, but on others it was way too easy. She's pretty hardcore though, so medium or hard are just fine with me. after playing for about 7 hours, we were beat and ellen wanted to try her hand at Guitar Hero 3's online multiplayer. she joined a game with some dude, and the song he picked was Through the Fire and the Flames......




yeah, the Dragonforce song at the end credits of the game. unbelievable, but she held her own against that guy and lost by a few hundred thousand points. she picked Bulls on Parade as the second song, and even though she lost that one also, it was really really close. the guy activated Star Power at the end, and just squeaked by and won.

the best part? she was playing on my Xbox Live profile and the guy she was playing was a developer from Red Octane, so i got the Meet Your Maker achievement.

yeah!!!!

holy crap, my face melted off!!!!


just got Rock Band, and i'm loving it!!! my nephew of 7 years and my non-gamer brother just got through the first leg of our world tour. i can't wait till SnifflyFlunky gets here, we need a REAL drummer cause i'm horrible at it. the drums are by FAR the hardest instument to play, because even at easy difficulty, you use all the colors and the foot pedal. in contrast, playing either guitar or bass on easy only require the green, red and yellow buttons. i didn't have anyone available to sing, but that will change tomorrow......

mass effect, not so much.......

Amazon Black Friday


Amazon's Black Friday vote thing from last year is back, with a kick-ass deal on a $79 Wii, $139 PS3 or a $99 Xbox 360. vote for the winner, and buy it at a ridiculous price!!!!

happy kid makes me laugh


slow to post, Galaxy, hacked Surfer Girl, and assassins.

I've been a real lazy ass for the last 2 months, and Halo 3,& Guitar Hero 3, and Call of Duty 4 are to blame. if i have any free time, ( or time at all) i'm usually playing one of these. so the posting has fallen to the wayside, and i apologize to all 134 regular readers. it's a sincere apology, but I'm not promising anything like a regular schedule. that being said, Super Mario Galaxy is awesome!! it follows the Super Mario 64 level design where you unlock new levels after collecting the stars in that level, and the pseudo-2 player element is perfect for that annoying little brother-sister-cousin-son-daughter-who wants to play. good stuff.

Surfer Girl reviews Star Wars is a blog that's been around for a while, feeding the gaming press rumors and insider info that's been accurate. who this person is (man or woman) has been a mystery to everyone, but that hasn't stopped a wiley hacker from messing with the site. i wonder how easy it is to hack a Blogger site.......

i've been messing with assassin's creed, and am not impressed so far. way to spoil the story, by tossing the most interesting part AT THE BEGINNING, before any gameplay has begun. thanks alot. someone at ubisoft should really hire a writer.

endings


is is me or has this been the best year ever for gaming? i just got through with Call of Duty 4's single player campaign, and it has to have the most satisfying ending i've experienced in a long, LONG time. the flow of the game is so much better than COD 3 or even Halo 3. the final level beat out any FPS I've played this year..(with the exception of Bioshock which i have yet to complete....i know.....) with the awesome multiplayer and the most solid single-player campaign, it's a serious entry for Game of the Year..... i think i like it more than halo 3 right now.....
