So do you know what the one-cymbal, two-cymbal, three-cymbal add-ons are each supposed to offer?

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I imagine the idea is that you can use those in lieu of hitting the pads. As far as I know, Guitar Hero: World Tour won't recognize them.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I'm happy. This is like their bonus song section I guess.

Any idea when they're supposed to be available?

Ah, Nov 4, along with the Presidents of the USA pack... and technically, the AC/DC pack.
Still no word on whether or not Canada is stuck with Walmart when it comes to the AC/DC thing though. Yuck.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Aw man. I finally did it! I beat "Won't Get Fooled Again" on Expert Drums! I am sweating and my bass pedal leg is sore, but I did it!

Woot!

I suck at "Won't Get Fooled Again," How do you play an instrument while constantly taking off and putting on sunglasses while saying bad one-liners?

Awesome! I can muddle through the song on medium, but I still love it.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Is Rock Band 2 "easier" than Rock Band 1? I unlocked all the songs on RB1 on Mediaum, then when I learned how to play on Hard I went back and am getting my butt kicked by two songs on the second-to-last set.

I'm starting out on Hard for RB2 just going through the songs on first glance and haven't failed any songs. In fact, almost all of them have been four or five stars with a few threes here and there.

Well, I use the Hyperspeed option which improves my play dramatically. They might have also loosened up the hit window a bit. No song has given me as much trouble as Green Grass and High Tides on RB1.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

At least on "challenge" mode, all the metal songs are stacked towards the end. I can beat them on hard but I can't even imagine doing them on expert.

Only thing worse than long idiotic solos are just metal songs where you need to masturbate all over the fret board.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

RB2 is easier in some respects, harder in others. I think the top tier stuff is a bit harder myself.

The free stuff isn't great, but there are a few songs there that seemed ok when I checked 'em out. Most of it I don't even want for free. I like most everything on the DLC list for this Tuesday. Siouxsie is a definite win. Can't wait to be playing some AC/DC next week.

Having tried the RB2 drums, I've pretty much decided that I'll just go with the IONs, and pick that up in the next month. I already have the Rock Pedal and it's a huge improvement over the stock pedal.

Since the gf has all but stopped playing RB2 with me these days, I've gone back to doing vocals again (she always does vox when we play together and I play guitar or drum). I'm up at #5 on the Xbox leaderboards for vocals on "Flirtin' With Disaster" (there are three tied for the top spot, and I'm tied with three others after that). Woo-hoo!

Seems like some of the people I play with online are all playing Fable II or Saints Row 2 this week. Until today. Now some of them are playing GH:WT. I have several games stuck in mid-completion thanks to my dedication in playing Rock Band over the other games.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

For me the biggest hurdle is the lack of a single song mode in the single player career. Sometimes I just want to play a song for fun and it's kind of a pain to do that in career mode because a bad performance means you lose fans.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Well, you can always sing in Quickplay and throw up a set of songs for fun. The scores will still count towards the leaderboards if you have a great run in a song. I've played a ton of the challenges, too, but I have a lot of really long setlists left there (including some of the "infinite" ones. At least you can save part of the way through the set.

On the BWT, I've been doing a mix of things. Playing drums some, playing guitar/bas and singing...whatever I'm best at for the venue/set that I'm working on at the time. I sold out to Hot Topic and lost fans. Of course, I went back to that song and tried to do better later without recalling that it was the Hot Topic set. Didn't mention it until the song was over, then I suddenly lost 700,000+ fans. Bummer!
