The official DJ Hero Thread!
 
Hello all! I thought it would be an idea for fans of DJ Hero to have a place to congregate to chat decks n mash'ups or even arrange to play online!!
 
So firstly, to the early adaptors, what do you think of the game? What you expected? Better or worse than you thought? Do you like the style of mash-ups the game uses? Do you think the price will put off the casual punter, or do you think word of mouth will sell it?
 
Lets hear your views on it !

I'm loving the game loads.

 

However, I have a problem or two. Anyone notice that the game will jerk on occassionmaking you miss a hit? I've played a lot over yesterday and today, the problem has only occurred about 8 times, but still, it happens. I'm guessing this has something to do with being connected to PSN? I had the problem once when a friend came online.

 

The other little problem I have is that me and a friend cannot see our friend scores on the leaderboards.

 

Other than that, great game.

Hello DJ fans!! :D

Yes I have had the game since Friday and already loving it!

The game is just something different to me. I am into all the electronic music, but wasn't going to buy this game as I didn't think I would like it so much due to never really being interested in that sort of thing. Well how wrong was I... The game is amazing, you really have to pay attention as one look away from the screen and you have lost it. The game is very multi tasking, you have to look after the cross fader, the effects dial and the Euphoria button which is your star power. Then of course you have the scratching, directional scratching and so on!

I am a big fan of Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Now yes they set a challenge on the guitar say, but once you get to a certain point I feel as though you have mastered that. With DJ Hero I feel it's only just the start!

I do feel the price is maybe a bit to high, but for what it is it's amazing!

By the way the Daft Punk set is worth £90 on it's own to be honest :D

I have had little freezes in the game as well, not often but have noticed them, maybe a patch soon then?

But that's the only thing I have noticed!

I hope this post has helped with your decision!!

I haven't had any freezing on Single Player yet, but noticed it twice whilst playing online. Nothing bad though. :)

Oh right ok. I have only noticed it in Single player. It's like the song just stops but then suddenly comes back, by then you have lost track of where you are!! :D

Yeah, I've only played the game in single player when I've noticed the jerky freezes. I will try again later without being signed in to PSN.

I'm playing the game through on medium so I can get used to the controls etc first.

 So far, I think the game is brilliant!!

I paid £80 for it from sainsburys, which I feel is a bit over priced, but if you love your electronic music. You won't be disappointed!

I feel it is worth every penny!!

But if you don't want to pay that much. You can always wait for the January sales. Fingers crossed, there should be some good offers on it by then. 

 

Overall, the game is amazing! If anyone would like to play some online games, then just say :)

It's too pricey for me, doesnt have the same appeal as Guitar Hero. I'll get it when it's £50 but not paying £80 - £100! That's asking too much.

Now then, for forum events for this game I have 2 idea's

 

  • Tournament - Get 32 players that play 1v1, loser get knocked out until there is an eventual winner

 

or

 

  • Song Challenge - I pick a song and Difficulty setting and everyone has a week to get their best score on it, taking a photo as evidence.
 

Any preferences?

Maybe just need a picture of the score and post it here? EDIT: See you posted about the photo, sorry dude! :D

Awesome :)

I feel it will let everyone be involved then, rather than waiting for there turn.
It will be great fun trying to beat the scores and that :D

Will it have different tables say for people who are playing on medium then people who are playing on hard say?
