    Ok, so I had a strange but pleasant experience with the Haarp SE dvd last night... I had tried watching it twice and despite my selecting 5.1 sound in the audio setup menu, it would always play in mono, which sucks...

    Well last night, I wanted to watch some of it with my girlfriend (who also digs muse) and I just fire up the DVD, and hit play right away, without going into the audio menu at all.

    Lo and behold, the dvd then proceeds to play in DTS sound, which is not only full-surround, but also, not listed as an audio option in the menu (or on the DVD sleeve for that matter).

    So it all comes down to don't select anything in the audio menu... needless to say I was puzzled but pleased :D

    Do you remember when the EU exclusives were leaked and this forum exploded with the wrath of Americans that wanted those songs and Europeans who wanted something special because of the crap they've had to go through to get the game? If they bust out some Muse, or worse, Hysteria itself, as DLC int he States before the EU release there will be an uproar like you wouldn't believe. We should be patient. The Muse will definitely come. I'd rather have to wait a bit than have it and feel even crappier about my friends in Europe and their RB situation.
    Well, I think that's stupid. Does it help Europe if the Americans have to suffer waiting for something although they actually must not? It doesn't bring Rockband out earlier if HMX is not giving the Americans the Muse DLC. At the time when Europe gets the game, Europe will get the whole DLC that was released in the US so far and at that time America will get the Europe exlusive tracks.
    On another note, I want to say that the current discussion is exactly why I like posting in this thread in particular. Here, I feel like you can say what your opinion is and not have to worry about getting flamed by people who fly off the handle as soon as someone says anything negative about what they like. So thanks Coldplayer and thanks everyone else!
    You're welcome. :)

    Oh, yes, sorry, my mistake. Down is the new up! That's even better! Because that means he should like Radiohead as much as Muse, since Down is the New Up!! ;) :D

    I think its more of a philosphical thing. They want the PAL release to be "Special" since it was delayed so long. So they include a bunch of bonus tracks. Of course we get wind of this and thow a fit because we want Muse, and we want it now.

    But it would undermine the "uniqueness" of the PAL version to give them bonus tracks that have already been avaliable for a while. So the principle of the thing is to not release them until after May 23rd.

    Edit: I guess my post about why Radiohead and Muse sound alike did get lost. But I still intend to go through your HAARP criqique Coldplayer, as soon as I get a free evening.

    Well, I think it's gift enough to give Europe those songs for free. America definitely have to pay for those songs.
    I still think HMX will release those songs in the end of May, probably on the same day when Europe gets all the American DLC.

    Sorry! I really missed your last post! I have to agree with what you said. You said it more detailed. I just said one is power, one is feeling. :p

    And yo, take your time. I hope I could explain good enough how I feel about Muse's music. Looking forward to what you have to say!

    I can't agree with you when you say the musics are alike... specially those two you mention!!!! I can say from the 4 albums the BH&R is the one I like the least (that doesn't mean that I don't like it), it's the most "Commercial/Pop" Muse album and it's very easy to see that from how many people that never heard of Muse before are in to the band since this last album, specially from songs like "Starlight", "Supermassive Black Hole", "Invincible"... So that's probably why you are more into this last album...

    what you say about the songs sounding the same is exactly what I think of Radiohead... songs without "force", songs too mellow and that seam to drag themselves in agony... It's hard to understand what Tom is saying in a lot of songs... I fell that music from Radiohead lack "power", "Strength"... and I fell the same about Coldplay...

    I really don't understand why so many people say that Muse and Radiohead are very much alike... I don't see any similarity... Muse as Power... Radiohead doesn't... Muse is uplifting, makes us want to "get up and change the world" but radiohead makes me want to sit down and fell depressed...

    I see Radiohead much like I see Coldplay... those two to me are very alike...


    And I don't mean no disrespect... it's just my opinion... I like some Radiohead songs a lot, like "Creep", "Idioteque", Fake Plastic Trees" but I think they are overrated... like U2 is the most overrated band ever!!! (but that's another discussion!! :p)

    Muse Rocks my Socks Off!!!!!!!
    I guess we can agree to disagree... I personally like Muse, Radiohead, and U2 almost equally. Everyone has their opinion, and I respect it, unless they listen to Soulja Boy. But that doesn't belong here.

    I'm with you on that. The day it comes out I'm gonna play it on bass, drums as well as sing and play guitar at the same time, pretending to be my favorite rock stars in all roles :D

    For a minute there I forgot it was actually May now. (Standardized tests, never having to write the date down, etc.)
    Oh, it seems so much closer now. Hysteria's less than a month away!

    I suppose that makes Wii users redheaded stepchildren, but eh. They didn't have to import to get Rock Band earlier. (We actually got a 360 for Rock Band. It was expensive as all hell, but it now sees more play than all the other systems we have combined. In retrospect, a PS3 might have been a better investment, but the 360 was more immediate and we didn't have to use Stratocasters.)

    Down Is The New Up sounds familiar, which is strange, because I don't really listen to Radiohead (yet, that is). Maybe because one of my friends constantly goes to the piano in the commons and plays Radiohead songs.

    I guess I'm the only one who enjoys their use of feedback and the like. Maybe it's because I've been playing guitar for so long, but it just fascinates me. Personally, I can't wait to get my hands on some decent pickups and a few effects pedals so I can mess around with that stuff.
    Some of it is very impressive. Fuzz Factory is on my list of things to get. Matt has a midi pickup in his guitar too, which feeds into the digitech whammy. So many different effects, pedals, amps, etc. Plus the Kaoss pad in his newer guitars.

    EDIT: Matt can re-tune his guitar on the fly because his newest two guitars have a Tronical PowerTune Automatic Guitar Tuning System. It perfectly and automatically tunes the guitar in 1-2 seconds!

    If you're going to buy one effects pedal, go with the Digitech Whammy. That thing is awesome. $250 isn't even that expensive when you look at the other stuff that's out there.

    Another fun toy is the Boss micro BR. It's mainly a really tiny 4-channel mixing board but it's also got a buttload of digital effects, distortions, and amp simulations as well as a bunch of drum loops that are pretty convincing. Oh and it's got an Mp3 playback mode that lets you play back and slow down music files so you can learn to play them. Not bad for $230 I'd say.

    Ok, forgive me for just now getting on the bandwagon. I've known of Muse since around the time Absolution came out. Didn't give them much of a thought. Then when Black Holes cames out I began hearing the singles and what not, not much thought again. Then about a few weeks ago I heard this song on the radio and thought "Wow, this song is great. Sounds like Muse" Found out it was Map of the Problematic. When I got back to my place, I downloaded Black Holes. Let me tell you. That is one of the best albums I have EVER heard and I've been around a while and have listened to alot of music (I'm 31 though look 25 and act like 12). I have subsequently have gotten all their official albums and each one is brilliant. Anyway, just wanted to post my thoughts and support Muse for DLC.

    An interesting fact that I just discovered:

    Matt Bellamy stated in an interview with Colin Murray that he believes Invincible is the "heart" of Black Holes and Revelations.

    Perhaps the reason I love the song so much is because Matt really believes in it. I always said that I can really feel the emotion in the song, and now I know that he really does love to perform the song.

    Ohhhh, that's just not fair for people like me who can't afford all this amazing equipment. :(

    i wouldn't say its really bad news or good news.

    the bad = its on GH3

    the good = Muse is willing to give up more songs to these games.

    i would be more pissed about it, but since 1 of the 3 in the pack is SBH, and u can't buy the songs individually, i'm not worried about it. definitely would love to play Stockholm tho...
  • SveppiSveppi Road Warrior
    edited May 2008
    Still, I really wanted those songs, especially Stockholm Syndrome

    oh, if Hysteria wasn't already confirmed to be on its way, i would be a lil more pissed.

    a friend of mine just got GH3 this week cause it dropped in price. maybe i can convince him to buy this. i'm certainly not wasting anymore money on a game i never play anymore...

    I just hope they didn't sign any type of exclusive DLC deal.

    i wouldn't worry about that. i'm sure if they did, Activision would be letting everybody know about it.

    this is probably just a response to RB puttin Hysteria in the game. they know Muse is wanted by the GH/RB fanbase, and they have the resources to make this happen.

    seriously tho, HMX needs to load up their biggest guns ASAP.

    I'm looking at it like this...they obviously have no objections to their songs being in the music games, so that's a plus. Also, look at how many songs/bands are on both games...there's quite a bit of back and forth going on, so maybe if we keep our fingers crossed we'll see them on RB too.

    It does make me sad though to think of how overcharted they're going to be. If KoC was any indication, I'm expecting a lot of synth in Stockholm Syndrome to be included.

    And I want to sing and play drums too. :(

    Yeah, you guys are right. I guess I was just a bit overwhelmed. This is, well, almost a positive as it means, as stated before me, that Muse are willing to play ball for both teams.


    I think that Activision has spies in this thread....

    I see the side you guys are taking in saying that this doesn't mean we won't get any Muse for RB but I hate the fact that they are in such a terrible piece of garbage like GH3. ESPECIALLY because two of the songs are ones that were at the top of my list.

    I don't care that it's Muse, I for one will NOT be buying this pack. I'm not giving Activision any more of my money. They're going to ruin the songs anyway.

    I'll be picking up Exo-Politics at the very least, strictly to look at it from a technical standpoint. It's one of my favorite things to play on guitar, and it will be interesting to see just how over the top GH goes with their overcharting business.

    It's a shame that they got Stockholm Syndrome though. On the plus side though, GH got Peace of Mind from Boston, then RB released it in the six pack...so let's hope something similar happens here.
