Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Any Americans around, there's a deal at Old Navy tomorrow to get a free copy of Lego Rock Band. Of course, you'll have to line up and whatnot, but still.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

While it can lead to some hilarity, I think the next game really needs to be able to change the vocalist accordingly in the middle of a set. Seeing a male/female vocalist singing a female/male vocal part is funny, but wrong.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Bought Lego Rock Band on Friday...
About half of my RB2 DLC is available to me in it...
so about 130 of 260 songs...
Fun game, though there seem to be some problems with the export codes...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I rented LEGO Rock Band and Beatles Rock Band over the long weekend. LEGO Rock Band is much closer to the Rock Band 2 style that I love. Both games are entirely too easy on Medium, and there are few songs that are just pure fun to play. I love the LEGO humor and game structure, but the song list just isn't robust enough for me to buy the game.

Worst song in RB history contender: We Will Rock You

Sure, people besides the vocalist have parts before the ending solo, but it is the most mind-numbingly boring part imaginable.

Well, those two groups balance each other out pretty well, don't they

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Oh come on.

That's just silly - especially when people are already tired of the genre.

While Harmonix did lay off staff yesterday, it wasn't due to Electronic Arts (which only publishes Rock Band). Harmonix is owned by MTV Games.
