Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Oh, I know you were just bustin' me. I do really like playing Enter Sandman, but that one was one of the three you couldn't export into RB2 (figures!).

I'm really curious as to how the Beatles game will play out. The fact that they're not tying it to RB, and wanting to follow a storyline should make it at least somewhat unique. Can't wait to find out some more about the game.

I just played guitar for the first time in two months today. Much of it came right back, but there was definitely a lot of sloppiness involved. That's the problem with enjoying and wanting to play all the instruments, AND having a ton of DLC. It's hard to really work on much in one segment of the game without ignoring the others. Damn you, Harmonix!

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I know this is the Rock Band thread but...

Have Guitar Hero World Tour? Then you'll want to log on to the PlayStation Store next Tuesday or Wednesday for a surprise FREE DLC update. The Bruce Springsteen pack will feature two songs: the classic "Born to Run" and his new single, "My Lucky Day." The surprise Tuesday update coincides with Bruce's latest album release, "Working On A Dream."

Make sure you grab it as soon as possible. Put it in your calendar so you don't forget, because the DLC will become a premium pack on Thursday, February 5th, and it will cost $3.99. Don't let your tardiness cost you $4, okay?

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Does anyone know if the Guitar Hero 3 controller works with Rock Band 2 on the 360 ?

The guitars that came with GH2 and GH3 both work with Rock Band and Rock Band 2 on the 360.

Coolness.

I am getting tired of Guitar Hero and want new songs, the Aerosmith version was a bit of a let down and far too easy.

I may treat myself to Rock Band today.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

So far, I have found the GHIII controller to be the best IMO, so you can't go wrong. Make sure you get Rock Band 2 and then get Rock Band 1 used, import the songs, and then return the game.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

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.

The GHIII controller doesn't have the solo buttons though.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I guess, but I never really used them on my RB1 guitar. Was a bit too much of an adjustment to jump to the solo buttons quickly when I could do the same thing near the neck.
