: Most Dorky Videogame Thread Ever

Preface: I am well aware of the level or dorkitude that one must possess to find this so awesome.


That being said, the new Rock Band 2 for XBOX 360 and PS3 just got the most wild feature ever added to a videogame- linking your forum account to the game itself.

Why is this cool, you might ask? In the game, you make a custom rocker to jam out as from thousands of parts (face, hair, shirt, pants, gloves, tattoos, glasses, etc..). It's fun either making someone that looks like you, or just someone who looks cool as hell. That part is neat, but by linking your forum account on Rockband.com to your XBOX Live account you can access a character gallery on the web site. You can arrange them in bitchin' poses in front of several different backgrounds, then download them onto your PC as wallpapers and such- but that's not the end.

In a moneymaking scheme that eclipses the coolness of anything ever seen before, once you have made a totally awesome picture of your rocker (or entire band, if you made one), you can click a link to order custom made T-Shirts, buttons, posters, keychains, bumper stickers and even 6" figurines of your custom characters- right down to the exact clothes and hair that you designed them with.

I'm not going to be running around sporting a Rock Band shirt with my dude on it or anything, but anyone who is impressed by technology and innovation has to agree with me that this is cool as hell. They're going to make a mint off all the 12-16 year olds buying this stuff. Check it out:

But does Little Big Planet have AC/DC, Megadeth, Lacuna Coil and Muse?

Yeah- I didn't think so. :sneaky:

I spend maybe an hour a week playing my XBOX360. I play mainly GTA IV and Forza Motorsports, although when I had Perfect Dark for 360, I pretty much played that nonstop for a month.

Forget 12-16 I'm pretty sure this is going to be all the rage with the 18-30 y/os lol

We used to rock out to rock band in virtually all of our free time, but my hands down, without a doubt, all time favorite video game that I just can't get tired of (even after over 300 hours of gameplay) is Oblivion for the 360 OMG :drool:

Completely agreed. Oblivion was unbelievable, I can't wait for the next game. It's so immersive.

Although if you're going to do Rock band, you should do it....

The hubby's work put on a demo to try and bid for a job on some video game, and they set up a stage with a 16' x 9' screen and projector as the back drop, then 4 LCD screens for the players to watch, they did full stage lights and smoke and all of that, it was crazy.

Fallout 3 is Bethesda's next game. Think Oblivion meets Mad Max. :drool:

I'm only in if I can have full chameleon, 100+ sneak and some enchanted bows & arrows.... *cough*

Actually I've really been trying to get bored of Oblivion and start something new. We got Assassin's Creed and while it's cool and all, I'd still rather play Oblivion.... although after watching that full trailer I'd have to say that might be kinda cool....

It's still 1-1.5 years out, but when finished I most likely will be lost in the Star Trek Online MMORPG. :D
