I just want everyone to know that I bought this game for PS2 because Blockbuster sucks and refuses to stock good games. And that is what this game is. Good. Rent it, buy it, whatever, but I think you will like it.

Yeah, I got this game for Christmas, and it rocks. Hell, even one of my friends, that hates music games, loves it. I still haven't beaten it though. I suck
And yep, Blockbuster is really bad when it comes to what they will and won't stock. They only stock games that are sure rentals. They pretty much don't stock anything that can be described as "different" or "quirky." Meh, I don't want to spend $50 to buy Rez or Mister Mosquito, because they're both supposed to be really short, but no rental place in town carries them. Same thing with Sega Soccer Slam..and a lot of other good games.

Speaking as someone who works at Big Blue, we make REALLY messed up choices when it comes to games. What's the biggest game out this week? Gcube-Resident Evil. What do we get a bunch of copies of instead? Burnout, a forgettable car game.
Do you wanna know the weird thing though? Poo games rent really well. Kind of like how 95% of a wrestling audience thinks seeing Rikishi shove ass in someone's face is cool, 95% of people who rent games at blockbuster think that the Army Man games are good, and won't ever try out Fatal Frame or the Deception games.

Dude, my Blockbuster doesn't even HAVE any of the Deception games. I hate you and your store.

Of course, I own both 2 and 3, so it's not that important, but it's the principle of the matter. At least the Blockbuster near me got lots of copies of RE in(which didn't stop them from being all checked out when I went up there at 4:00 on Friday. Good thing I have a friend who works there. He *ahem* arranged a copy for me) with maybe 1 or 2 of Burnout.

Ok, I KNOW that's a goddamned lie. I've never met anyone in my life who likes Army Men. :)

Frequency is one of those games on my "I'll buy it when the price drops, as it looks interesting but I'm not blowing $50 on a maybe-I'll-like-it-and-maybe-I-won't game" list. Rez is also firmly on that list.

I'm not usually much for rhythm-action games, though I did pick up Dance Dance Revolution 2nd Mix as a DC import and it's slowly growing on me. Perhaps I'm not doomed to have the innate rhythm of Elaine Benes after all.

On the flip side, the Deception games are very easy but VERY fun. Winning is easy once you work out a few good combos (and trivial once you unlock the "special" vases), but hitting a solid double-digit-hit combo is a joy. Plus, you have to love how if you drop a vase on a zero-lifebar foe fast enough, you can reanimate the corpse for more punishment...
