I love my fake plastic guitar games, but yeah, it doesn't really seem sustainable.

All those games, and still no dedicated Megadeth game. *sigh*

I have a feeling Activision is going to kill the market with all their flooding.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Harmonix isn't helping matters with Beatles and Lego.

Yeah, there are some new features and the Beatles wank aesthetic for Beatles fans... but there's no reason why the songs can't just be available for RB2 for people who don't really care about any of the trappings.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Well, i didn't buy the Metallica game because i don't like their music that much and i might get the Greatest Hits game if/when it gets marked down...
Right now Guitar Hero 5 and Lego - Rock Band seem to be the 2 games i'm most likely to get full price, maybe The Beatles one as well...
Band Hero depends on the tracklist, Van Halen, maybe...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Some news about Guitar and Band Hero:

Guitar Hero 5 will feature a pretty sweet set list of 85 new songs when it releases in September, but if you're still in the mood for some older jams, the good news is you want have to swap discs to play them. IGN has reported that "some" of the disc-based songs from Guitar Hero World Tour and Guitar Hero Smash Hits will be importable into Guitar Hero 5 (and the upcoming Band Hero) for a small fee, and 152 out of 158 of World Tour's DLC songs will automatically be compatible in 5 as well. On top of that, IGN also revealed that a playable model of Johnny Cash will appear in the game.

Following in the footsteps of Harmonix...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

God, 1up needs a copy editor... want have to swap? Really?

You know, I didn't even get through the career in GH4. I suppose if I ever get GH5, I could at least just skip the career mode crap.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

With the imported songs Guitar Hero will only be lagging Rock Band by a good... year as a platform. But hey, maybe GH5 will have a good engine, and I'll actually be able to get some mileage out of the WT on disc songs. This is also more incentive for me to pick up Smash Hits at some point.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Well, if Lego, RB2 and Beatles become three separate platforms... then Harmonix is just as jank nowadays.

No reason not to. All songs are available to play in Quickplay from the start in Metallica and Smash Hits and this will continue with GH5.

Just skip Band Hero. Lily Allen = AUTOFAIL.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Does anyone know when RB2 comes out for the Wii in Europe? The release date seems to be pushing further and further back... and I don't really trust wikipedia's dates.
