  1. Dandy_Sephy has got it spot on - it's a totally different game to the last one. The Guitarcade games are much, much better as well. And the Session mode is just brilliant. Best moment of last night - playing with the 'dark electronic' band for a while, which sounded like Portishead, then seeing there was a spare instrument slot. I had a browse through the available instruments and added a kazoo. I'm having some oddness with the tuner though, it gives wildly different readings all the time. Very odd, as I didn't have that problem with the last one.
  2. It's £6.75 on Xbox. It didn't even need the Rocksmith 1 disc, it just detected a R1 save, asked if I wanted to buy the licence and then downloaded the tracks. I haven't checked to see exactly which tracks aren't included, but it looks like the Eric Clapton and Cream tracks are the notable ones.
  3. I struggled with that at the start too - I was trying to play it like Thief but the shadows in Dishonored don't work like that. It all clicked for me when I realised that the equivalent of shadow is actually height. There are a ton of stealthy paths placed through the levels that are above the line of sight of the guards and other NPCs. Sometimes they are ledges, pillars or actual raised pathways, other times they are just pendant light fittings that you can blink between, but there's usually something high up that can get you quietly through the level.
  4. My Fruit Ninja code is also still available for anyone who wants it. I guess that's empirical evidence that you can't even give away Kinect games.
  5. I've got codes for Fruit Ninja Kinect and the Toy Soldiers Napalm DLC pack if anyone still wants them. Drop me a PM and let me know which one you'd like. Edit: Toy Soldiers DLC has gone. Fruit Ninja still available.
  6. I don't know, I do tend to buy a lot of Arcade games...it's a sickness.
  7. As with other people here, it turned out that the code was for Shadow Complex, rather than Uno Rush. I've already got that, and my mate didn't want it, so it's yours if you haven't already got it? (I know this should be a PM, but you need more than 50 posts to send a PM. Curse my lurking)
  8. I've already offered it to a mate, but if he doesn't fancy it, it's yours. (That's assuming codes aren't locked to accounts of course. Would seem a bit harsh if they were)
  9. Cheers for the info. That explains why I got a prize for being "in the top three", even though I was 8th. Shame I've already got Uno Rush.
  10. After battling through the crash-fest on Friday night, last night was much smoother. Overall I think the changes have made it much better - and having proper themes for the Extended Play questions is a big improvement too. And I've unlocked what looks like the Arrested Development chicken dance. Does anyone know what the rules are for prizes this season? The rules on the official site still refer to Season 1.
  11. I did exactly the same. Mine turned up on Monday and I'm really happy with it so far. It's very solid and can be set up\taken down with the flick of a single lever. Much better than having to drag the dining table through to the lounge whenever I wanted to play.
  12. Kuchibi's got Leaderboards: http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/games/of...502df?cid=SLink They're implemented really well too, as your high scores are updated on them even while you're still playing the game (some of the game modes can go on pretty much endlessly, over multiple game sessions). Looking at the Leaderboards is a bit depressing though, as it reinforces how few people are buying these indie games. I'd highly recommend Kuchibi btw - very mellow puzzler with 4 game modes that play very differently to each other.
  13. There are a quite ridiculous number of different cameras in each category. I didn't try the X button, but by highlighting the "camera" icon, pressing A cycles through all the cams in the category, while holding A then moving left and right changes category. The ones that pan across the car were particularly lush. And you can definitely switch off the "Press < to rewind" message; it's right at the bottom of the HUD options. That got on my wick after about half a lap (I'm not very good at avoiding the other cars), so I hunted the option out.
  14. Have a look in the Help screen; it explains how to do them and good places to practice. Doesn't make them much easier to actually do though...
  15. I contacted the developers about this last night and you can do it at the moment, it's just a bit fiddly. If you're both logged in on separate controllers, you just have to button out to the main menu when you want to switch controllers\players. It's not ideal, but the menus and loading are so fast it's not a major issue - and it's better than writing the times down on a bit of paper, like I was doing. There's a separate 'session' leaderboard for each track too, which shows your times just for your current play session, complete with gamertag.
  16. The Flash game on Miniclip is by the same team as Trials HD. They did the flash ones, then did Trials 2 in 3d, updated that as Trials 2 Second Edition and have now done Trials HD. The company's called Redlynx.

    Rock Band!

    That's the one. Thank you, I couldn't remember his name. I should have thought of Bod.

    As well as keeping your foot down by default, you might want try a higher chair. I've had to play on a sofa around at a mate's house and my leg hurt much more than when I was on my own dining chair. In the end I bought a proper drum stool so I could raise myself even higher still (I've got quite long legs) and I've not had a single problem since then. One of the youtube drumming tutorials, that someone linked to on here, said that your thigh should be just off horizontal, so your knee is slightly lower than your hip.
  19. Holding the Back button temporarily removes the 3d cities and stuff, just leaving the tiles, IIRC. That's meant to be a "strategic view" and it also lets you toggle between the farmers, showing the extent of their farms, which is quite useful when you want to muscle in on someone else's territory. I wish they'd made RB zoom in and LB zoom out, rather than having them both toggle through all the settings. I was very impressed that it remembers the different players' zoom settings if you're all playing one machine; very nice touch that. But my main real issue is that there seems to be a bug that stops you moving or zooming the view once final scoring has started, so you have to remember to zoom out before placing the last tile. And it doesn't even work if you view the game board once scoring is complete, which makes that feature totally pointless. Still, minor quibbles really, it's still a good version of a classic game.

    Whew, I was worried there for a second. Not being able to invert when running around and shooting would have killed this for me. Dodgy vehicle control I can live with, even though it's an odd omission. Cheers for the info.

    You mean there's no way to invert the controls in this game? "Push up on the stick to look up" only? Even if you've got inverted controls set in your 360 profile?
  22. My HMV order arrived this morning too! Pretty slow, I've had orders from VG+ arrive quicker than that, but as it was cheap as chips and had free delivery, I can't really complain. Now to convince the wife that she really wants to be a rock god.
  23. Excellent news! Bargains all round.
  24. Wahey! My HMV order's changed to "Completely shipped"! Thank you so much for spotting that Rev, you've saved me a mint! Well £18, but that's a lot to me at the moment. Odd that yours has gone to "Special Order", Kelthink. Perhaps HMV have taken more orders than they got units in? Bummer.
