So apparently, the new GF/DM is mutated.

5-button GF (experience the reverse ripoff), DM has two more drums (AAAAAAAAAA) and double bass.

Errr. I guess I'd have to play it to know what to think, but DM was plenty hard enough...

I like the idea of double bass and more drums; it might be harder, but it might actually make drumming just like the real thing 8D

Yeah I might as well go out and buy a drumset at this rate.  I am mad that GF moved to 5 buttons though, I'm pretty sure everyone is thinking "damnit Americans, you just HAD to go and make a 5 button guitar game, and now Japan is like WE CAN DO THAT TOO."

Yeah, in any case, it's about time DM had double bass. 7 drums... well, that's gonna be hard as nails, but oh well, now we're up to the number that a "real" drumset has. Given that the AC used to use a modified DTXplorer, I guess we'll just get a more-or-less stock unit, and so you really could learn to play drums off this thing.

Anyway, the interface looks super slick, and people are saying it's basically IIDX for GF/DM. GFXG might be a little dumb, but I'm pretty hyped for DMXG.

Wow, that makes the drums look hard.

5-fret guitar in theory isn't harder than GH/RB, but... in reality, they could make some really nasty pattern that requires too much fret switching.  Not sure what this really means for GF, though, since I never played it.

But yea, it does seem like a IIDX upgrade...

GF isn't known as the hard game of the pair (although I'm pretty bad at it, personally), so I doubt they'll get too crazy with it.

I saw the news on this and kinda facepalmed at the GF news but the DM news completely made up for it. I wonder how much an ASC will cost now  D:

DTXplorers are still about $700 (less if you buy used), for what that's worth.

I've heard that it's a hi-hat pedal, not a second bass.

At this point that's what I've heard too, which makes the game 9-lane. What fun 8D
