    It's called Up Beat, here's the link:

    It's fun and may even help develop finger coordination! But there's one rule: never, ever, turn the sound on. The music is absolutely Horrid with a capital H.

    So, what do y'all think?
  2. Pretty good as far as crap games go, i am terrible at it and hope it isn't a very good guage as to how my bass playing is :p

    honestly it's fun- if your computer can keep up with it. i missed a lot of stuff simply because of those stupid animations of "GOOD", "EXCELLENT", etc. almost challenged my computer to a beat-off.

    :D (yea, i remember the "beat-off" thread.

    kinda cool. not really that great if you have any rhythm though. It rewards you for being early, but if you are even a little late, it either counts as a 'miss' or goes toward the next 'note', plus the 'miss' effect obscures and slows down the music. So you can't really listen to the beat and follow along, unless you are content on rushing the beat all the time...
  6. ya that missed thing got annoying..
    i think my typing skills came to play in that game
    and it would be easier if the squares coming down had the letters on them :D

    I sucked at first, then I got really good and slightly addicted, now I wish there were more songs. Where's the keyboard solo from Light My Fire, dammit?!?

    It's like DDR with the keyboard. Less frustrating, because my feet keep going off center with the DDR pad.

    Anyways post your scores. 155911 on the 'Weekend' one with 138 max combo. First try, I felt I could have done better.
  9. Not that hard when you've spent as much time on Guitar Hero as I have. :bassist:

    It's not worth listening to the music.
