Band Games
« on: April 14, 2007, 12:05:46 pm »
Ok, this is a thread dedicated to games made by bands. . . or affiliated with bands.  I'm sure it will be short-lived, as I can only think of two:

Ed Hunter ~Iron Maiden~
    A horribly lack-lustre rail shooter. . .  Never played it. . . saw it for $17.99. . . but the graphics suck, the gamplay is supposed to suck. . . and. . . well. . .  the music is awesome, but I have it all already.

Kiss Psycho Circus ~Kiss~
    Played the demo. . . honestly, it was pretty good. . . Not only that, it got good reviews.  If I saw it for cheap, I'd def. pick it up. . . although it's based on a comic which is based on the band. . . That's a lot of bases to cover (oh-ho-ho, so funny!). . .

Any others that people can think of?

LoL. . . Killing pedestrians, everyone's favorite past time.

There were also Iron Maiden songs in GTA3: Vice City. . . specifically Two Minutes to Midnight.

Don't forget Qliphoth - Path of chaos made by The One! I think the link doesn't work anymore, but if you ask One I'm sure he'll let you play it. :)

Yeah, as I can see, the download links are not working any more.
I currently can't upload anything, cause my bandwidth and connectivity are very limited, the local server's got some trouble. But no worries, I'll get it fixed. :wink2:

No worries Cretin, it's only about 5MB.
About the limited conectivity, I really don't know what will I do about it, I guess I'll have to call to the internet company to get the problem fixed.

Well, the good news is that it downloaded and unzipped ok. . . the bad news is that it won't run. . . it says the file may be corrupted. . . or some such nonsense.  It also seems to have unpacked the Credits movie. . . but nothing else. . . Do I need a patch?  Perhaps a lobotomy?

I'll check on it today, don't worry. I hope I can fix the problem if it's something with the file.
Now, what it could be is that your computer is the problem. :unsure:

This looks... interesting. I'm always for a good postapocalyptic RPG. The Diablo part is what worries me - I was never a Diablo fan. Fallout, on the other hand... eh.

Still, looking forward to this one. I mean, it's got snow! Lots and lots and lots of it!


...


Oh, and Sonata Arctica. Which ain't bad. If it's as good as the new stuff, I'm buying this fucker.

LoL.  Wow. . . I agree. . . looks. . . interesting.  LoL.  The screenshot is pretty budget looking.  I haven't really heard ANY of Sonata's music, but a lot of people seem really into them on this site.  Diablo was ok. . . but Fallout is one of the KINGS of gaming. . . I mean, Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics. . . not a bad game in the bunch!  Of course, I neglected to mention the console Fallout. . . which was the stupidest marketing idea EVER.  Almost as dumb as Starcraft Ghost, or whatever it was called.

Sorry to go off topic, but I own only one Sonata album - 'Reckoning Night' - and I find it to be pretty bland power metal without anything to separate it out from the other billion and a half bands churning out this kind of stuff - not exactly bad, but... well just not exactly good either.

I'd be pleased to hear (from anyone) what it is that people like about this band - coz I don't get it.   :unsure:

I mean, if someone likes power metal, then sure they fit the bill - but what makes them better than other PM bands?

I actually have been asking myself this very same question for ages. *Sits next to Sirus to hear anybody's explanation*

I always found Sonata Arctica... cute. It's that special something something you feel for no apparent reason. I was turned off for the same reason as you lot, though - admittedly, I *did* like Ecliptica, 'cause of a few songs. Alas, the genericness of their music turned me away from Sonata.

Until, at least, this new album. I've opened a topic under Other bands, but don't bother going there or something. *profoundly stirred*


They pulled a Blind Guardian on the music industry - Guardian was generic speed power for the first two albums, when they started to evolve and create their own distinct, slightly proggish sound (as heard on their latest A Twist in the Myth). Sonata now did the same - I think they're searching for themselves right now. The albums so far were just a warm-up exercise, I guess.


Anywayz, I gave my answer in the first sentence - I find them cute :) That something something. Now, with their newfound approach to power (or bizzaro power, as I like to call it), they're something more than just 'that cute band'.
