  1. On a related note, I'm sick of people who claim that all rappers are "destroying the english language in front of recording equipment". You listen to fucking video game music, people. Have an open mind. Sure, Soulja Boy is terrible, and is arguably destroying hip-hop, but to use him as an example of rap and hip hop culture is short-sighted and ignorant. Today, rap is less about ego, and more about pointing out issues with black lower-class culture in an almost sociological way. Listen to some Nas, some Scarface. Sorry to rant, but it peeves me when people say things like "that whole culture has an ego problem". It's just ignorant and untrue.
  2. oh no son I know you didn't just diss the most important band in rock and roll history
  3. completely disagree. If anything, I think they're overrated. I dunno, it just seems to me that they get off on their own "prog-experimental-whatever" style too much instead of actually making decent music.
  4. Re-discovered the Verve Pipe a couple weeks ago. Love post-grunge.
  5. exactly- what I meant by my comment wasn't that I'd be interested in a game with a lack of a soundtrack, but in a game where the soundtrack lacks music. but again, this is obviously augmented by the feel the game wants to create. This wouldn't work in a game like Sonic or Mario.
  6. This is pretty much what I meant. But you said it better and more clearly :3
  7. The more I think about it, the more I feel like soundtracks aren't necessary for video games. In the 8-bit era, the music was there to help bring the player into the game, because the graphics sure weren't gonna do that. Now, with the rise of, you know, GRAPHICS, and especially the genre of art games, I would really love to see and play a video game designed to be silent, relying wholly on graphics, design, and gameplay to hook the player. That said, I do love my video game music and sill freely admit that it is an integral part of the video game as it exists today. I guess I just don't think it neccesarily HAS to be?
  8. emailed harmonix a week or so ago- was told that the request was sent to the higher-ups, and told to "stay tuned". Will keep you all posted.
  9. i love how you can't continue at like wily's stage part 2 or 3 or whatever. Awesome.
  10. d'awwwwww btw I don't hate you purplemanofspoon, i just think you can do better than this. It's really not that hard to come up with an engaging question- look, here I go. How about... The New Nostalgia: What was lost between mario kart 64 and MK: wii? In my dorm, we have an n64 and an Xbox. The n64 sees much more wear and tear than the Xbox, even though the games library for the 64 is sparse and we only have 2 controllers. Why is this? See? That only took like a minute. And notice it's open ended- this question could have any number of answers, perhaps not even relating to video games. Hopefully some would share their views and opinions on the cultural impact of nostalgia as well. It's not that hard, man. You can do better :3
  11. I apologize if it was unclear, but my post was meant to be parodical of the inherent nature of these threads, and was not entered seriously. :3 EVERY SINGLE SPELLING MISTAKE was calculated to display the kind of childish, dumb, and simplistic nature of threads like these. It actually pissed me off to read this thread- at least it's one of few of its kind. Purplecowofdoom, get some damn imagination. Perhaps this thread would be acceptable if you were a game designer or moviemaker looking to brainstorm ideas for unique weapons to put in a game. As it is, it's a giant circlejerk(odd, considering you're the only one who still takes this thread seriously) brainstorming session with no end to work towards, and no brains to feed it.
  12. what a bout a gun wher if u shoot it u are on fire but the fier dosent hurt you then u can run into enemys and meake them on fore but tihs time the fore hurts them too and they bunr to deth or mabey a gun whger it shoots a base ball bat at your enemys and then when it hits you can sat "homer run"
  13. sure they are. I saw them at best buy. the SPECIAL EDITION isn't out yet.
  14. So I wanna buy a 360. I have some contacts I'm looking intp at the mo', but assuming they fall through, I'd be happy to relieve one of you of your microsoft xbox 360, RROD'd or not, so long as I can send it in and get it replaced. Be warned, I'm poor. I can't pay much more than 150 or 180 dollars, and I'm looking for the system, a 20 gig hard drive, the cables, and atleast one controller. I'm not really expecting y'all to jump at the bit, but if any of you want to sell, I'll buy! I'm in MD for the next couple weeks, then shipping off to Chicago for school.
  15. 'sgood enough for me. The setlist is at the heart of any rhythm game, so if you dig GH's more than RB's, more power to you.
  16. Dude, the ion drumset is a very optional thing- its draw is that it's a real electric drumset with RB compatibility, not that it will add functionality to the game. It's something for people who like play drums IRL and want to heighten the experience. Personally I can't understand why someone who doesn't play drums would want that set now, much less "later down the road". Also, @ Pure-Evil, true, Rock Band hasn't been very portable, but that's prolly because Activision is HUEG and MTV games/harmonix aren't (that big) yet. Plus, don't you think artist exclusivity is kind of a dick thing for Activision to do?
  17. Well, yeah- the RB drumset apparently is gonna have add-ons which is nice, but Ionno, largely beside the point I feel.
  18. malaki- I don't think the RB DLC is back-compatible. Also, have you seen the setlists? This is prolly a personal thing, but I can't stand about 50% of the songs GH:WT is putting on there. Personally, a guitar with a silly touchpad and a needlessly complicated drumset won't make up for the fact that I don't like the song I'm playing. It's kind of a shame, because, you know the song creation is great and all. IMO, the GH frill looks great, but the core game has yet to impress me.
  19. I totally disagree. This song, given my glam/hair metal tendencies, really gets me thinking. It's nice to have a track like this, you know, one that leaves a spot for the vocalist to do his or her thing, not you know, feeding the singer his or her melody line. You may or may not be hearing from me.
  20. Man, I really hope guitar hero: WT comew out with a track listing as good as this one. Seeing bands like Korn confirmed for it give me the willies. With bands like Ratt and Judas Priest making the cut, I'm starting to wonder if I should give up the better guitar controller and music creator for an awesome setlist...
  21. you do realize that world tour is gonna be priced 10 dollars more than the original rock band was, tops, right?
  22. Neko, I'm a tenor who can sing baritone and fake bass. Although my voice fits squarely into the hair metal style and not the death metal style, I'd be happy to try and help in any way that I can. I'm not sure what the melody line that I'd sing would be, though- PM or E-mail me if you're interested in having me help!
