Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I liked all of them well enough upon listening to pick 'em all up next week.

I love having so much variety in my library, but it's a bitch to perfect very many songs when there are so many. It is kind of funny watching the gf play through the tour when the mystery setlists pop up though (Hmmm...don't know this one. Hmmm...don't know this one. Hmmm...don't know this one...).

When it comes to RB, the biggest surprise song for me was getting whacked with Visions out of the blue.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

They really need a way to tag songs to remove from mystery setlist.

I like to play on expert guitar but the final tier songs are pretty much impossible for me. I really don't want to play GGAHT either.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

A lot of people would like that. The counter argument is usually that people shouldn't be able to disable all the hard songs to get around some of the difficulty. I don't see the harm in having a limited ability to block songs from being used in mystery or random setlists. Say 5 songs or so.

Yeah, the final tier of RB2 is pretty much a massive bitch to me on anything besides vocals. Even on Hard. I could at least muddle through the final tier of RB1 most of the time well enough.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Tried the new no doubt dlc at someones house and I found them surprisingly fun to play. On expert it really felt like every note was accounted for on the chart.

You know what I could go for, but will probably never happen?

Pink Floyd's The Wall on Rock Band... I can dream.

I wouldn't care, except that they removed the option to grind through songs as in the first game.

So if they really want this to be a "casual" experience then why not go all the way? It's just a pain that the only way to make money in the game is also not fun for me to play.

Here's the part where people throw stones at me and call me a heretic, but I'd rather have A Momentary Lapse of Reason or Delicate Sound of Thunder

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

There's supposedly big hype around next week's DLC. Harmonix will be annoucing in their newsletter tonight and those who don't subscribe to it will find out about it Friday morning.

Rumors are going around that it's Texas Flood, but that's yet to be seen. I hope it's something good.

One of the greatest guitar players of all time. Suffice it to say, the whole album will be incredibly difficult. Difficult and awesome!


I think "Pride and Joy" was on one of the Guitar Hero games, I don't remember which one though.

Oh man, it'll be like the Dragonforce track pack for one of the games a while back? Hah.

Not that fast. He had a song on GHIII (and Texas Flood was in GHI) called "Pride and Joy". Hard songs that are fun to play, like most the difficult stuff they put in RB,
