Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

GHWT vs. RB2? [Also, all bundles 50% off at HMV Canada!]

    Saving each other is practically half the fun at parties.

    Yeah and also if you put on no fail after a while everyone just stops giving a shit entirely and hang out by the fridge with easy access to moar beer.

    But seriously, random setlists should not have overtly difficult songs on as a default. Those fuckers are almost guaranteed every time. I've got 300+ songs, but when playing bass, the frequency with which Ace of Spades '08 comes on over every fucking playlist just takes the piss man, and I love Motorhead <3.

    Edit; Also soz swearing too much 'coz drunk.

    No, not really.

    There's only a small group of people that I can play RB with failing on. The rest have a better time with failing off. It's pretty obvious they would have 'failed', but it spares them doing it in front of people and lets people finish the song and move on.

    I actually agree with Ketar. Saving each other is half the fun. I play with a ton of people who actively hate games and yet most of them can muddle through on easy. I mean to each their own, if that works for you cool. But there is an awesome feeling for everyone when you manage your way through a song you had no business passing. Drunken high fives and all that.

    Like I said, awesome for you, but some people get too embarassed about it and never want to play again. No Fail lets them have fun.

    The people I play with failing on are people that have no problem getting through Expert. These people have issues with Medium.

    Heh, if it's my friends over, most need a few songs to work up to medium and never get to hard. When it's my wife's friends over - pretty much none of whom are gamers - they all play on easy the entire night, with the exception of a couple of people on the drums. They still all prefer to play without no fail. Once enough alcohol has been imbibed that even easy starts to be too difficult, we switch to SingStar.

    I can see where if you have friends that get that embarassed that easily you would want to play with No Fail on. I just wouldn't assume that everyone else's parties are going to have the same issue...

    Plus as stated earlier, random challenges are specifically designed to throw the worst song in.
