If you haven't played Beatmania IIDX, you should check it out. Those of you that know what it is will respect it as a game with one of the steepest learning curves ever.

This topic is mainly about IIDX (7key+scratch), as opposed to the older Beatmania series (5key+scratch), although you can talk about both of em if you like. IIDX arcade is up to 13th Style (DistorteD) and 14th is about to come out soon (IIDX GOLD). PS2 versions is still at 12th Style (Happy Sky), although DistorteD is due out soon.

I know that Zetsu, Waddles and Shin have played it before; anyone else?

Hooo yeah this game is not very easy to pick up. If you want to get good at this you either need to be a natural OR you have to practice a shizzatload.

Has some of the most awesome music evar though. Like STRONG JAEGAR!!! WHOO~~! And Xepher and SigSig. It has some mean backgrounds too.

Yeah, the screen not dedicated to the keys in the original Beatmania games were mostly used to display the score and the count of the keys hit with a small gif-like animation. I suppose players didn't like that too much, so all the IIDX songs have their own unique background animation. Most of them are really high quality, and definately one of the ways people get into the game. (Other being their epic collection of great songs.)

I can't even pass the Normal difficulty of Mei... the only version of it I passed was the lv3 Beginner version, and the lv5 version on 5key. I'm still a lv4 player right now, cause I can't pass some of the lv4 songs.

Edit: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=UbOHTvhhm88 : >

Edit again: I found a place to get the controller for cheap...ironically, it's straight from the manufacturer.

http://www.konami.com/Konami/ctl3810/cp201...h_dj_controller

Shipping is only like 8 bucks, really good deal. Only problem is that it comes with the crappy US version of the game...guess you can play that, it has some classic songs from the original beatmania series.

Of course, you can always get it from Play-Asia for $70, or make Sho really, really, really happy. : >

Managed to pass all the lv3 on Hard today, the Hard Clear icon is neat, it glows white. The Full Combo indicator is funny, it flashes in random colors really quickly, lol

This ebay auction for a Beatmania with 2 dj controllers just went for 85 bucks...pretty cheap stuff, I bid but was quickly pwned. ):

o_O wtf are you talking about, the DistorteD arcade image has all the songs ever made since 1st Style. The PS2 version is just that, a PS2 versison. Which is better compatible with the KOC and more ready-to play.

arcade version is not only better because it has more songs, keep in mind that the arcade style controls are perfect. there are ASC ports for the ps2, but they're like $300.

haha yehs, thanks for that Zetsu.

Also, I'm taking a break from IIDX cause I had to return sharpmouse's ps2 dj controller (KOC). Mine's on the way tho... :3

bump...

first things first, DistorteD has a set release date. It's August 31 I think, and I'm looking forward to it :3

Secondly, I was looking forward to playing the arcade machine when we went to Oahu this past weekend...but... THE MACHINE WAS OUT OF ORDER. grargh!! /emo but I suppose it's okay, because the reason why it was out of order is because they were upgrading it to 14 GOLD, which is the next style. : >

lol Remember Mike told me the day before you checked the broken machine was that he waited 3 hours for them to start it up, realized it wasn't going to start, and left. XD He told me how he can start it up again but to the point of actually plugging in and turning on the screen.

I got my copy of DistorteD last Friday! woohoo, it's fawesome. So many good songs with a kickass interface.

found some vids of 嘆きの樹, the hardest song in DD (like Happy Sky's 冥). Here's a Korean guy getting an A on 嘆きの樹

and you thought that was hard, here's a guy passing it on [A14] (double mode by himself)
http://youtube.com/watch?v=gSX__m7GuJw

oh yeah Zetsu, I fixed that b0rked ps2 I had from forever ago. It works with burned games, so if you gimme $40 I'll get you a swapdisc thing.
