beatmania

i got a copy of beatmania recently, but i don't have the controller just yet. Since i'm just an impatient guy, i started playing it anyway using the default configuration on the standard PS2 controller.

it feels like learning bad habits. especially because i've tended to be a "one hand deals with the keys, the other with the scratch pad" kind of guy. i tell myself that i'm just getting myself familiar with the vocabulary of the screen, but i'm starting to associate it with muscle memory on the ps2 controller. it's like learning how to piano scales with wrong fingerings or only using three fingers, and then having to relearn them again, fighting the urge to do it the way i already learned it.

I'm just impatient. if i don't hear back from gamebaz about bargaining for a lower price, i'll probably buy it from them anyway on friday because their price is already pretty decent. maybe i'll wait until monday. we'll see.

i apologize for the avid readers of my LJ that it seems like over half of my posts these days have been about bemani. maybe i should create a separate bemani journal.
