Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Hm, apparently it is confirmed by a HMX developer:

Hey everyone - happy Friday!

It's awesome that you've all been discussing the little surprise we snuck into the GDRB demo. Some of you have posed questions about what that little surprise means and right now I can answer one - we are very excited to confirm keyboard support for RB3.

We know you've all got a TON of other questions but sit tight - we'll have a lot more RB3 news in a few weeks at E3. (Trust us, you'll be amazed).

If you haven't gotten to see the RB3 teaser screen for yourself yet, the Green Day Rock Band demo is still available. Download it to check everything out for yourself.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

A Mad Catz keyboard is incoming then?

How much do actual keyboards cost these days? If they can do a peripheral that's as functional as a real keyboard but have it come in at a reasonable price... it might be yet another piece of plastic junk I end up buying.

I agree with what most people are saying in that thread, HMX is probably holding onto Cemetary Gates for RB3 and they'll release the rest of Cowboys From Hell after that.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Anyone see the videos about PowerGig?
http://www.giantbomb.com/powergig-gu...orial/17-2594/

They're really pushing the "real guitar" controller... I'm almost interested.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Yeah, but the game itself looks like shit:
http://www.gametrailers.com/video/e3...wer-gig/100989

It looks like Rock Revolution...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Hah, yeah, the note tracking looks kind of awkward... I'd just hope that the promise of actually being able to play the song in real life if you're able to master it in the game holds true. At the very least it should teach you the muscle memory that you need to pull off certain chords and whatnot.

This seems sort of late to the party, even if they can promise even half of their "game changer" ambitions. The name brands Guitar Hero and Rock Band are already out there. They're like TurboGrafx when there's already Nintendo and Sega.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Oh yeah. I hope they don't have completely unrealistic expectations for the game and certainly this may end up being like Rock Revolution, but I think they might have a decent niche product here.

The genre is already in a downswing, which is why Rock Band 3 will have a keyboard of some sort. Any change might be good.

On another random note, new RBN rules were released - all songs have to use all the fret buttons on all difficulties now. I have no idea why they'd do that, but there it goes.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

The Power Gig game also has a strange, although kind of interesting, drum component: http://arstechnica.com/gaming/news/2...-wait-what.ars

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Just listened to a segment on the Giantbomb podcast which kind of shat all over the game. It seems the "real guitar" part only really teaches you chords if you want to use it as some kind of training tool. Oh well!

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

And Joystiq says the drum peripheral is a massive fail. Looks like this game is gonna turn out like another 'Rock Revolution'.
