Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I thought it was really kinda chuckle-worthy seeing male characters singing with female voices and vice-versa.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I beat the Endless Setlist 2 on Medium yesterday with 5 stars on each song. It took me 7 hours with a short break every 12th song. While I do feel a sense of accomplishment, I find myself angry at the game design decision to make the Endless Setlist the way it is.

For one thing, it takes up pretty much half a waking day. That's not a good thing either socially or physically. The alternative is to manually break it up with pauses, causing unnecessary power consumption and preventing the use of the TV until it is finished.

Why couldn't they put in a temp save feature? Even real bands seldom play for more than 2 hours in a set without a break, and I've never heard of any band playing for over 6 hours straight. Allowing a save every 20th song would be a nice compromise between stamina and reality.

I don't plan on doing the ES2 on Hard or Expert. As Han Solo said, "No reward is worth this."

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Is it really endless if it can be beaten?

It's 84 songs, but it sure seems endless.

Wow, impressive. We actually held a party to do the ES1 on hard for the first rockband, that got pretty grueling by the end. I thought that ES2 didn't allow pausing? That's the only reason we haven't done it yet.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

There's an Iron Bladder achievement for beating the game on endless without pausing... which is just insane.

So anyone playing the Beatles game? I'm not in to the beatles but I still enjoyed the game. Most of the songs are really fun to play, and the little animated sequences were really cool.
Yeah, I'm a huge Beatle fan and am loving it. I haven't played Rock Band in awhile, but me and my friends are (and my dad, who's a big Beatle's fan as well) are loving The Beatles Rock Band. I never liked singing in Rock Band, but I am singing my tail off in this one - mainly because I already know the songs inside and out already anyway, the harmonies are really fun to do too. I am just having a lot of fun with it personally.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I've been perusing the official Rock Band forums...
What a bunch of whiners when it comes to what they want for DLC...
Worse then GameFAQs posters...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

When Rock Band network comes out, it won't matter. They can just pester the bands instead.

I have been wanting to attempt the endless setlist for awhile now, but just haven't. Most of the time it's just me playing though, I double up drums and vocals, which is why I haven't done it yet - I figure it would be more fun with other people playing with me. It's just hard to get anyone motivated to do it, once they see how many songs that are involved, they say forget it. One day I may get the drive to do it, but I doubt it will be anytime soon.

They'll find something to complain about. It's the Internet, after all.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Oh, speaking of Rock Band Network, it appears that if you are in XNA Creator's Club, you get access to the backend.

And here's a free XNA membership if you're a student - https://www.dreamspark.com/default.aspx

Ah, doh, it looks like the trial only lets you deploy games to the 360, not test them. Too bad.
