      2. @scribus This song is in my Taiko no Tatsujin game. :) I like it because I can play it and not look horrible. (I kind of suck at Taiko) !rgp

        1. @ponybis The greatest thing; in two posts, we go from 1998 to 2001~2002 (or even 2007, lol)

        2. @ponybis Is that like a drumming rhythm game? I've never heard of it.

          1. @scribus Yes it is, it only got one US release on the PS2, but it kind of bombed so Namco doesn't really release it here, but it's very popular in Asian arcades. There are 3 out on the Nintendo DS and the Sony PSP respectively (all different to thankfully!) and I also have 3 on the Wii with a "Tatakon" controller which is a drum and some breadsti- I mean drumsticks. I have trouble reading the game because there is only one lane with different kinds of notes and no speed mods afaik. Controller looks like this: http://img55.imageshack.us/img55/4995/90587121lx0.jpg except it hooks up to a Wiimote. The game has a lot of Anime OPs, some classical music, some Namco originals, and occasionally licensed tracks like Mario and Monster Hunter tracks. Here's some Gameplay with Katamari. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=earHPtRGSGE

            2. @ponybis I love that game! It's amazing!

              1. @nvrrmbr If you want to emulate it on PC http://osu.ppy.sh/ has a Taiko mode and some Arcade original charts for it. You can even connect the Wiimote Tatakon via Bluetooth to play it! I actually haven't gotten around to testing that out, though. I did try it with a Wii emulator, but it caused too much input lag.

            3. @ponybis That looks like the sort of game that would be harder than it looks.

              1. @scribus Yeah, it is I guess. IIDX is way harder than it looks which is what I'm primarily playing right now. Here's an example of the songs I'm passing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgOaHWBwo34 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuFpJfDqQqA and I can only A these (goes up to AAA), but this game is HARDER THAN IT LOOKS. Like.. WAY HARDER. The scratching is the hardest part! 7 buttons, 4 in lower row (white in game), 3 in top row (blue in game), and a turntable (Red in game)! The turntable makes it so hard! And on top of that the timing is tighter than any other rhythm game and if you miss notes it's ridiculously unforgiving! I'm still better at this than Taiko, though, but mostly because I play it much more. !rgp

                1. @ponybis That's the medium mode on both of those songs, mind you! They get even harder! This is honestly the hardest game I've ever played. IWBTG and crap can be beaten if you dedicate three or four days to it. This game takes years to be great at.
