Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Also, the pre-order guitars seem to have universal codes...

"The Amazon Video Games team thanks you for your pre-order of Rock Band 3. Now it's time to get you your bonus code.

Here is your bonus code: BLUE-ORANGE-ORANGE-BLUE-ORANGE-ORANGE-BLUE-BLUE

This code will give you access to the Rock Band 3 pre-order bonus guitar.

How to Use Your Code:

Step 1: Insert Rock Band 3 software into your console.
Step 2: From the main menu, enter the code using your Rock Band 3 controls."
The Best Buy one should probably found as well...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Having trouble downloading songs from RB2 (Wii). It says to contact EA. Can anyone help?

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Hm, no release date delivery from bol.com...
Hopefully i will get it tomorrow or Saturday so i can get the free songs...

WTF?!?
Now it says release date is next week?!?
Looks like i'm going to see if it's in stores here and cancel my online order...
Although it seems like both the Doors DLC and the export aren't up and running for the EU PSN...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I played RB3 all afternoon. Got the three free Doors tracks, had fun playing those. I like the new menu system, the way players can drop in and out quickly and easily. I like the new challenges (go into overdrive as many times as possible, get as many streaks as possible, etc) and there's a lot of great tracks. Failing out of 'Freebird' got me all nostalgic for 2007.

I'm still sad about losing some of the tracks that won't make the song export from RB2, because a couple of them were favorites, but I'll deal. Overall, I'm really pleased with this game. I can't wait to dig further into it and eventually check out the pro-mode.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I like that there's a No Fail mode that lets you finish a song and still record a score. I can finally play expert guitar and not worry about the solos kicking my ass (Smoke on the Water, damn you).

The ability to instantly switch instruments on the fly is a god send too, since before I'd have to log out and log on and blahblahblah. I'm just disappointed that they removed headset support, because that's how I would play the vocal and guitar sections.

I was all ready to upgrade to a RB2 guitar but it turns out all the stores around here got rid of them ages ago. I tried a GH guitar and I just can't play with it. The neck is way too thick and the clacky strum bar is just off putting.

Oh I definitely prefer the GH guitar. That mushy strum on the RB guitar is off-putting for me, and the whole thing just felt flimsy. The GH guitar has more weight to it, feels more solid. To each his own, I guess.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Yeah, it's really strange. You either like one or the other. I don't mind the GH guitar, but it hurts to play for a long time and the clacking can get a bit distracting.

I'm wondering if I should even bother though, since I'm going to buy the Pro Guitar... I don't think I'll ever play drums, but I almost want to have a drum set to replace my old RB1 drumset that is "upgrade ready" in case I ever want to do Pro Drums.

The only reason I'm worried is that it looks like this whole scheme of plastic instruments is basically dead - especially since Warriors of Rock bombed. It might actually be hard to buy these things down the line outside of special order.

In Rock Band 3 is there a way to unlock all the songs for quickplay?

When I went to the in-game music store, it showed up as the "Rock Band 3 Free Launch Pack"
