Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Konami's Rock Revolution drum kit. They haven't decided whether or not to allow interoperability with other guitars, although at their demo they were apparently using Les Pauls. Either way, three drums this holiday season... yippie!

I just played it for the first time at best buy today. I just purchased it on amazon. Enough said.

FYI, for you 360 owners who buy a lot of the downloadable music (I'm wondering if I've spent more on DLC than the actual game at this point), Circuit City is selling Xbox Live 1600-point cards for $15 this week.

^ You can buy them online. Get two of them and shipping is free. Use something like Ebates and get a small percentage back.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Too bad US cards don't work in Canada... and points are still more expensive up here than down there.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I had a go on this last night with some drunk friends and really enjoyed it. I've never played any such thing before.

I didn't like the guitar but that is probably the snobby guitarist in me, but I loved the drum kit. OK it only lets you use one foot, I think a 2 pedal setup would be great for the really hard settings, but apart from that it is a pretty good introduction to rhythm basics, it's a lot like playing a real electronic kit.

My friend had downloaded Interstate Love Song as well which was great fun to sing.

Yes! A7X!

Know what would make a great song: "Hall of Mountain King" by Savatage and "Hail and Kill" by Manowar

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

18.99?
It costs more than the other albums?

Red Album stuff. I'm a new Weezer fan and I really just like stuff from their first album. Figures.
