Rhythm Games?!

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

Does this warrant its own thread? Maybe not? I tried to find one but didn't get any results.
I love rhythm games a lot and if anyone has any recommendations, I'd love to hear.

I did DDR for a while at uni but that's not important.
During my early years on the Internet I met someone who was really into PoMu, so I got somewhat familiar with a surprising amount of music from games I've never played. Recently I've been going through all the songs I liked from tooling around Bemani in years past and showing them to people.

Oh hey, it's my thread.
I looked for one of these too, but I couldn't find one and wasn't so sure there was enough players on the forum to make one.

Controller collection. Not pictured: second FP7 which I lent to a friend and my svse5 which is on its way here atm.

The DDR controller is a PDP which is so low quality it makes me want to neck myself, but I'm really happy with the others.

What was their handle, Vi? I might know them.

The name I knew them by was LuminescentSword, but I feel like it may have been abbreviated or otherwise different elsewhere.
This was the better part of a decade ago, so they're probably not current.

also that is quite the collection
OMG the DDR pads are made for Captain Falcon :o

I've always wanted to try jubeat. The setup has always seemed like it would be satisfying to play with-- kind of like a launchpad.

You'd be better off with a launchpad imo, Jubeat is complete memorization. It's kinda fun for a while, but the better you get the more of a grind it becomes. I should play it more.
One of the best foreign jubeat players is australian!

If we're talking about carousel music...

(Aren't all of these games memorization-based? I mean you can shuffle if you're bored after all the memorization to learn things the first time...)

I used to play loads of DDR and I play guitar hero/Rock band from time to time. Mainly Beatles.

Depends on both the game and on your definition of memorization.

Yesterday I had the great opportunity to go to an arcade and play some rhythm games there. It was a first since there are none in my area.

pros
It was really really fun. I would want to go back.
10 dollars for roughly 2 hours of gameplay was worth.

cons
Very loud. I noticed some machines had a headphone jack which would be helpful and if I return I will be prepared.
I can’t read Japanese and that made it hard for some of the machines, especially since I have to navigate the menus on a timer.

games
In order from most to least fun:
1. Groove Coaster: I loved this game. Each beatmap has its own feel and gameplay is super satisfying too.
2. DDR: I’ve played pad stuff very few times but I picked it up pretty quickly while I was there. A lot of fun.
3. Sound Voltex: I had the most trouble with the menus, and nothing really stood out to me. Still a fine game.
4. Project Diva: I dislike that button placement on the machine is not intuitively matched with the beatmap (theres no intuitive way to know where the X button is on the machine, for example).
5. Beatmania: 7 key fits really awkwardly between my fingers and that was a big hindrance to my enjoyment. The DJ spinning is not satisfying enough to not be annoying.

Me and some friends are planning on going to a (different) arcade at some point.
I still want to play the Taiko game, jubeat, and I want to get better at beatmania so that I can actually pass hard songs.

it is good to hear you enjoyed yourself
the unintuitive nature of iidx is a large part of its appeal
it's not for everybody though
the dj turntable is something that becomes second nature eventually
the game is a lot about making things that are initially obscure and unintuitive instead homely and second nature, like brood war or smash brothers melee

do you have access to pump it up
it is like ddr but better

I’ll keep an eye out, but I didnt see it there.
I can see how beatmania would be appealing and definitely want to get better at it. But dedicating that much of my energy doesnt seem like the right move considering I dont own any of these games and would have to spend my limited amount of credits into it.

if you are looking for games with a good return on money and/or time investment I would recommend ddr, piu and popn music
they use large muscle groups and are quite intuitive so you don't rust too much from not playing and learning is fairly straightforward and enjoyable

unfortunately popn is quite rare in the us I think

I played the DS version and thought it was a lot of fun. I've always wanted the Wii version.
