That's right. After a long and hard effort...
I have achieved the highest rank on Elite Beat Agents.
Umm.... no, I did not mean that... you dirty, dirty peoples... you read too much into my deceptive words...
I must say that I spent two nights which I should have been doing a take-home final for a class that I might be getting a 'C' in - playing this game instead. I actually haven't reviewed a game in who knows how long (I think at least a month) but I think I just found the one... if I can find the time.
Between the next two weeks of hell - aka finals and final projects - I hope that I can at least have a moment to breathe.
Anyway, back to Elite Beat Agents. m0zart was right. 'Tis amazing-ness. The only thing I can really fault it for is making a beat chart for "I Was Born to Love You," and in that vein, making things almost intentionally American. Whatever Japanese quirkiness the original version had been thrown into the fire. And I don't feel any warmer.
Still, my hand is now cramped thanks to this game and, okay, I admit it, me. Nonetheless, I blame the stylus. The stylus, you hear!
My favorite song has to be "September." Maybe it's because I have a groovy soul. You know, like a ninja.
Ninjas have groove.

I still have 3 weeks of hell (finals and a final group project). I've segregated myself from my PS2 & FF12 to get my work done. I hate the end of semesters.

Wow, maybe I should put my PS2 & FFXII in the closet somewhere. It's just sitting next to the TV and bending its will upon my peasant mind.

Man, that's awesome. I can't see myself ever achieving the highest rank. I'm about 28 million away from the second highest with only three stages left to clear. What are your highest scores? I need to know what's possible.

Let's see what the highest scores I have are... hmmm.... *opens DS*
I guess a run-down would suffice. I'm going to display the highest score between the three-star and four-star difficult, because the beat chart is essentially the same - as you probably know, the four-star difficulty is just a faster, mirrored version of the three-star difficulty.
"Walkie Talkie Man" - 1902310 - S
"Makes No Difference" - 2048650 - S
"Sk8er Boi" - 1593110 - A

Awesome stuff. At least I can get up with some of those on 3-star. Overall, I still have too many B's, though. Actually, the only S ranks I have are on the lowest difficulty. But HOPE IS RENEWED.
