My yellow pad arrived with packaging scuffing/dents on the yellow pad and the cymbals are less sensitive (likely caused by the brain) then I would like, but the pads work like a champ and it misses far fewer notes then my RB1 set. The notes I miss are almost always my own screwups. :lol
I don't think it's the cymbals that are causing the trouble. I swapped out a cymbal from a friend's Edrum set and it had the same problem when going through the ION brain. When using the ION cymbal with his set it picked up extremely light taps and rolls on the cymbal without any trouble. That led me down the road to thinking it was either the software or brain. I was hoping the cymbal problem was tied to the software velocity sensitivity, but after hooking it up to my PC and also trying GHWT and still not getting the light hits I'm thinking it's due to the brain not passing the signals.(I still need to try out RB1 on the set) To rule out the software completely though I'd have to use a USB port reader or something but I hadn't had any luck filtering through the massive amount of messages.
message of the day and floaty skelaton message of the day works fine for that. honestly, I can't think of anything different between the PS3 and 360 version except that the instruments connect differently and the online is seperate. they really are exactly the same game.
That's a tough decision as most of the songs on that are absolutely terrible. I'd say there are one or two songs on it worth buying so getting them for $0.99 is nice, but you also have to put up with introducing a lot of crap into your system so that's an issue as well.
Oh and why didn't anyone tell me that we got not only Dead Kennedys, but Mission of Fucking Burma?!? OMG. Pavement is almost a possibility now. I can imagine that we might really get Pavement. What's next, Husker Du?
I still can't believe that I had to suffer through Disturbed and SOAD and all that other crap on the disc instead of getting something awesome like this though. It's just not right. But it almost makes up for the Killers. Almost.
Bank refused payment, call the bank, turns out ShopTo are being wankers, got it approved, ShopTo say they'll ship it tomorrow, call them up, wait, call them up again as they only have 1 phone line, get them to ship it tonight.
I wouldn't say that so much. It is a bit sad that since Jello was apparently a total dick about profits (I can maybe see how it was an honest mistake, but I don't know that I'm buying that) and the rest of the band got the rights they've been whoring their songs out all over the place to make some more cash.
