I've been using the white xplorer GHIII model, but after hearing a friend rave about the Rock Band 2 Wireless one, I ordered it.

I'll see how much I dig it when it arrives tomorrow.
Ok, I just got it, and started playing immediately, Wow, huge difference from that white xplorer model I've been using. This thing rocks, it doesn't feel cheap in my hands at all. The buttons are so much better and the strum bar is fantastic.

But, I must say, the best part of it is how sensative the tilt sensor is for overdrive. no more jerking the hell out of the thing and ending up screwing the song up, just a slight tilt and bam!

Overall opinion? Awesome!

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Man, I need a lot more Dream Theater DLC stat!! I don't feel like buying GH:WT just for Pull Me Under. I honestly have a hard time going back to any guitar hero game after the awesomeness that is Rock Band. More Dream Theater please.

Of course, it'll be another year before I have 100% Expert on Constant Motion and Panic Attack, but I still want more!

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Three Fratellis tracks were announced today ("Flathead," "Henrietta," and "Creeping Up The Backstairs"). Nothing too exciting, but there's a lot of bitching and moaning on the RB forum about the selection. This past week's DLC was great. I've had fun playing some classic Thin Lizzy.

Can't wait to pick up the coming soon wireless P-Bass. I was holding out with the wired version, but they announced the wireless version before I finally cracked.

As for the mentions of GHWT - I rented it, played it one night, then sent it back. Despite liking a number of the songs that RB doesn't have (including Wings!), I have no interest in playing that again. We have Lips, and it's fairly fun and simple, but their DLC choices have been sucking really hard lately. I still find myself playing RB far more than any of the other music games.

So, I'm not the only member of Portnoy's message board that posts here I always figured...

Speaking of DT, hope the next album is better than the last one. If ever a band needed an editor... Love the guys but...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I just got the "southern rock pack" or Guitar Hero: World Tour. Creedance Clearwater Revival's "Commition", Ram Jam's "Black Betty" and ZZ Top's "Gimme All Your Lovin". Black Betty and Gimme are covers, but they're good covers. Lots of fun playing these tonight.
