1.) The game is also no BETTER. I hate how it gives such inadequate feedback on how you play and you never seem to be penalized enough.
2.) You think so? I suppose it's all opinionated, but I switched the vocals to beginner way too often just because I never was too thrilled with what I was singing.
3.) Yeah, you have a point, and maybe it will be better next go around, but for now it is atrocious. Video game music covers constantly get removed by mods.

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

Yeah, but it's easy to find video game music vids on YouTube, and just recreate them yourself. I'm sure there are also websites set up to help you create it, if you don't want to do it by YouTube.

If you download a created song, and a mod deletes it from the download list, does the copy on your system get deleted as well?

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

My mate who is a Guitar Hero adict just got World Tour on 360, and after playing it 3 times, I loved it. Even the singing. (and I'm not the greatest singer around )

So, should I get it for Wii? Will I love it as much at home? Is it worth the money to get the full pakage with drums, etc? I need answers!!!!!!

Edit: I read that rant up there, and there are good songs on there!!! From looking at the tracks on previous installments, they seem to be tryign to keep it fresh. Hence, not a full set list of amazing songs.
Besides, you can download tracks, so it shouldn't be a worry.

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

The Wii is probably the worst console to get any Guitar Hero/Rock Band game. No downloadable content really effects the lasting appeal of the game. I'd get it for the 360 or PS3.

Actually, World Tour for Wii has downloadable content. You can even download custom songs from other consoles. I have the game, so I know this.

Oh, was it World Tour he was talking about? My mistake then. I thought he was talking about a previous installation of the Guitar Hero franchise.

Insizor, if you like Guitar Hero, get it for the Wii or whatever you own. It's not any different besides worse graphics.

Going on a trip. What DS game should I bring?

Next weekend, I will be leaving the state to visit my aunt.
Since I will be in a house with 3 chatty women for 3 days, I figured that it would be a good idea to bring a new DS game along.

I'm looking for an RPG, since I have a few weeks of for Christmas and I don't have to worry about work or school (ie. lots of free time).

Here are my choices:

- The World Ends With You (I've heard nothing but good about it)
- Chrono Trigger (I've played it a long time ago, but I don't remember it all)
- Dragon Quest IV (Never played it, but it looks really fun)
- Final Fantasy III/IV (Same as DQIV)
- Anything else you think is good

I'm not exactly well-versed in RPG's, so some help would be appreciated.

Please tell me WHY you would choose whatever game you would choose.

Also, what's fun to do in Phoenix Arizona?

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

I was in a similar situation a few months ago; I was going on a long, boring trip and needed a timesink to pass the hours.

I chose The World Ends with You, and let me tell you, it was the highlight of the trip. I recommend it especially if you're not a big JRPG fan, since it tends to avoid many of the typical JRPG elements, while the other games on your list thrive in them.

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

Hey there, guys.

I'm a Gamecube/DS/N64 owner -- and I'm looking for a decent RPG to play on them. I haven't got that many, and I'd like to know if there are any real shiners (such as Tales of Symphonia or something else as ridiculously famous) for these systems.

I have gaming-capable computers, but one is technically school's (Would had to run direct off disk) and the others run off Fedora. I was thinking of buying Assasain's Creed -- but I don't know if it works on Fedora.

I'm looking for something second-hand, or at least cheap. Any ideas?

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

Off the bat, if you haven't already purchased these games already, I'd suggest getting The World Ends With You or Final Fantasy IV for the DS. If it's popular games you're looking for, you should get Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles, Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II, and Skies of Arcadia Legends for the GCN.

Also, have you installed Wine so that your Fedora OS will run Windows-based applications?

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

I know I'm not directly answering anyone's question about a game to play, but if you have a PS2, and want a good JRPG to play, choose Digital Devil Saga. It's slightly more difficult than many other JRPGs, but that's why it's good. Oh, and it has a really good story as well. BUY IT.

Which Animal Crossing Game?

My sister and I are new to the Animal Crossing series and are wondering whether it would be to get Wild World of City Folk. We like how you can bring Wild World anywhere that you can bring your DS and also how you can use the stylus to draw patterns. In City Folk, we like how we can live in separate houses and see designs made by other people in the Able Sister's shop. I also like how I can give my character a Mii head. Is there more to the differences in the games that we should know about? Please give me suggestions on which would be better and why.

So that's what happened.

Anyway, while I'm here, I'll also suggest The World Ends With You. Even after I played through it and got all the items, I'm still not tired of its music. It has a good story and artwork too.

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

Hey guys I just got a Wii. The only games I have are Wii sports, wii play and LCT. Now I have some gift cards and money to use to buy more games. Which games would you recommend I should get (at most 3 games)? Obviously I'm a hardcore zelda fan and I love, action, shooting, rpg and adventure. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Lots of fun, especially for groups.

I'd say it mostly depends on how often you're going to be using your Wii/DS. They're both a lot of fun. The city aspect in City Folk gives it a little more variety, instead of the everyday normal town business. So I'd just go with whichever you play more often. If you play them both around the same amount of time, I'd go City Folk. It's newer and it has a bunch of new stuff.
