    You know, I had always wondered what a person with absolutely zero sense of rhythm looked like. I mean, there's plenty of satire of it, but I've never seen a real-life example. Now I'm just one step closer to knowing all things knowable.

    The colorblind metaphor seems incredibly on-point, by the way. It's just something that you either "get", or you don't. No shame in it, it just is what it is.

    I'm not a nice guy, I just play one in real life.

    1) Missing the beat just means you lose that turn. It's actually sometimes useful to skip a beat in order to better line up an attack. Unless you're going for a high score.

    2)There was a huge missed opportunity to see Mike/Jerry trying to play this on a DDR pad.

    3)If Mike just wants to experience the art/music, Bard mode takes out the rhythm element and makes it turn based. It takes out 90% of the game's challenge & replayability though.

    I've been meaning to suggest this one for a First 15 for a while. Glad to see it wasn't necessary. :)

    I'm happy to see this game get exposure of any kind, but they just finished a free-to-play weekend on Steam so the timing is unfortunate =(

    Still an awesome game though.

    I think Mike is about as good at the game as I'd be. "Feeling the beat" is just not something I can do. At all. I can do something at a fixed rate to some degree, but deriving that rate by listening to music is not happening (always makes it worse). Interestingly, I was always decent at Rock Band, even on drums. Because you can play those games by doing what the screen tells you too. In fact I found turning off the sound often made things easier since it wasn't there to distract me.

    People like watching extraordinary success and comical failure. I really want to see Mike play Iridium Studios game Sequence, which is basically DDR RPG combat. It's super fun and he will hate it, so much so that I don't think he would finish 15 minutes (whithout Jerry anyway).
    Mike met the designer Jason Wishnov, and he'd dig their other game, There Came An Echo.
