Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I ordered mine from Amazon - saved 16 bucks - but of course, I have no idea when it'll arrive.
I'd also need to grab a hard drive to do the Rock Band song transfer... although, I'll probably keep the disc for the three songs. Well, unless they're going to do a non-cover version of Paranoid sometime soon.

How much HD space did the song transfer take up?

Closer to 1.5 I believe. I can't believe how many songs are in this game. I decided to not use the unlock code and so far I've gotten 43/84 songs playable.

Some of the early songs suck IMO, but they have been getting more and more awesome with each tier. Having the crowd sing "Anyway You Want It" is pure win.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

That's my favourite undocumented feature. If you FC a section, the audience sings with you.
In fact, that's probably the worst aspect of the DLC... they don't have time to mix that into the track.

Me too. I play "Wanted Dead or Alive" just for the audience singing.

"Saaaaay it ain't soooooOOOOooooOOOO, my life is a heaaartbreeaaakerrr!"

Amazon says my RB2 is shipping on the 17th... gaaarg.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Breakneck speed really makes this game for me. It made the Grateful Dead song a lot of fun to play and really gives the guitar parts a GHII feel.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Sleater Kinney!
Anyway, whatever happened to the 20 free songs?

Amazon has delayed the game for a month for me... which means I'll have to bite the bullet if I want it now. Unfortunately, no stores seem to have the damn thing.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Since it's game-only and 360-only, I have no problem coming across RB2 at stores.

The 20 free songs probably won't come out until the game comes out for the rest of the consoles in addition to the full instrument bundles. Speaking of which, bundles are $159 (PS2) and $169 (all the rest) at Deep Discount.

I caved and bought it. Don't know why Harmonix thinks they should keep songs away from less skilled players, they did that with Guitar Hero II as well. Sod the achievements, I want to play Won't Get Fooled Again but my fingers just won't let me play on medium so unlock code it is.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

It's not a big deal, I just can get through the WT while unlocking songs. I think I've played all the songs and nothing has given me as much trouble as GG&HT from RB1. That song took me months to beat the end.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I guess the problem is that having more songs in RB2 actually makes unlocking new songs that much harder.
I'm really surprised that quickplay doesn't feature all the songs unlocked, even now.
