I can still play al those games online and get the chievos? K, I'm cool then


The only game that will have it's achievements affected is Midnight Club: LA. While you'll still be able to race, the "Rate A Ride" feature will be disabled which affects the "submit a vehicle to Rate My Ride" and "rate 25 rides" achievements.

I've mentioned this elsewhere, and I'll say it again here considering Microsoft ending 360 support in 2016. Everybody is misunderstanding what this means.


When Microsoft claims they'll end support in 2016, I'd have to imagine that this refers to new releases. Remember the original Xbox and it's servers? They were still live until just three years ago or so, five years (approx) into the 360's lifetime, and by that point, people weren't really playing much that wasn't Halo 2.


I personally see 360 servers being up until at least 2020, giving us a solid six years into the X1's lifespan. Whether at that point servers will be shut down entirely or will be made downloadable only remains to be seen, but I wouldn't worry about it for now. Heck, in five years, most of us will probably have next gen consoles and our 360s will be collecting dust.

#11546327 What Tracks Work with Rock Band Blitz

Posted by JStryke on 21 February 2014 - 02:54 PM

Been a while since I played Rock Band, but I'm 99% sure on this.


For exporting Rock Band 2, on the back of the manual, there should be a code to download 20 bonus songs. That code should also allow you to export your RB2 tracks into RB3. If you don't have a manual (or the code was redeemed), you can instead purchase a downloadable key for $10.


That said, To export from RB2, you have to own RB 3 since in the menus there was an option to export songs from 2.


RB3 is worth it however. Since you own Blitz, you can use those songs in RB3 as well. The reverse is not true in the sense that RB3 songs do not work in Blitz (since there's no way to export RB3 songs).


For any of the other Rock Band titles:


Rock Band 1 - Requires the disc and $5. There's no free code for the first game.

Rock Band "Track Packs" - Requires a code which is in the case. Discs were findable in the past (new) for roughly $5.

Lego Rock Band / Green Day - Never owned these, but I presume they work the same way as RB2.


Also of note, there are a few songs from RB1 and RB2 which will not work in RB3. Wasn't any more than 10 songs and mainly consisted of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soundgarden, covers of two or three bands (although I believe the real versions of all those songs are available as DLC). Only other one I recall off hand was Hier Kommt Alex by Die Toten Hosen.

#11318354 360 - Dodonpachi Resurrection $17.09 on Amazon.com

thats what i was gonna ask.. which versions work with US machines? xbox is bitchy about that unlike ps3


I will confirm that the PAL version is the one that works with US consoles well. NTSC-J version will only work in Japan.


That said, I remember paying $50 for this a while ago and was worth it for that price if you're into shmups. Crazy to see some of them getting these reprints and/or drops in price. If only Bullet Soul and Ginga Force would do the same.

Really wishing I had the hard drive space as Resident Evil Revelations next week is tempting. Granted, I haven't checked disc prices in a while so that may be even cheaper now, not 100% sure off hand.


Haha there's a blast from the past.  A lot has changed since last time you've posted.  Any chance you're able to come back and take over the reigns again?



So after Bobby's recent death, you're now admitting to wanting Necro dead as well. With Microsoft forcing you off your throne, I can't help but wonder.


Joey, if you take the reigns again, watch your back. I think there's a murderer afoot.

#11189585 Pokemon X and Y Announced!

Posted by JStryke on 04 November 2013 - 02:09 AM

That Hitmantop video is pure gold.


Also, going through the spreadsheet and will be messaging everyone for A) awareness for those who may not be as active on the forum and B) to have more people add me as well to their 3DS. The more friend codes, the better. :D


Also added a Battle and Trade column a couple days ago for anybody who wishes to utilize it.

#11168631 The CAG Pokemon Trading/Discussion Thread

Posted by JStryke on 28 October 2013 - 03:16 AM

Made a spreadsheet of everybody that has posted thus far in this thread and in the main pokemon thread.


Added all the forum names and friend codes. Any other information such as names or safari pokemon I added as well if it was mentioned.




Said this in the other thread, but feel free to make suggestions for other possible columns to add as well.

Hey, we due for new OTT? 25 pages?


Someone else start it. Make it New Years themed because it should last until then.


It'll last until New Years of this year or next?

Straightforward? :whee:


Someone forgot about the multiplayer acheivements. :whee: Good luck finding someone to play this with. :whee: :whee:  :whee:


I have two friends with this game, they don't even want to boost it with me. :whee: I'm sitting at 750G (I beat it on Cherokee).


The multiplayer is pretty quick though. Did it a while ago and I think myself and another got it done in three hours give or take.


Also, technically speaking, you can die in Prey. Granted, it's only for the first 4 chapters or so. Just throwing that out there.

Having seen the majornelson update, I see that there's nothing on sale this week or next. Wolf Among Us is tempting though so may pick that up whenever I'm ready for that game. Anybody know if it's going to have monthly releases like The Walking Dead did?


Also, missed all the farewells and intros this time around, but good to see the thread is still in gold hands. If it was me, it would probably end up like Bobby's dad's paper birthday cake. :P


As for Tyler, sucks how everything went down, but you gave it a good run. I shall do for you what I will refuse to do for David Carpenter. Seriously, that man needs to be fired yesterday. Thank you Tyler. *clap clap clap clap clap*

That said, sitting at 166,375 myself. Hoping to hit 200k by the time I hit 25 early next year.
