Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Yeah, the price of entry is just way too high. I'm still waiting for price drops before picking it up.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

For DJ, I just don't know about that one. But I will play any new RB and some of the GH's.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Does Rock Band II have the same censorship issues that world tour/band hero has? I just found out that RB II is compatible with my BH equipment. As much as I love Guitar Hero, I'm gonna jump ship for Rock Band II if this is the case.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

There are some songs that are censored, but that might be more of a case of which version they got to use from the record companies...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Do they to stupid things like censor the word whiskey in American Pie? Honestly, it was very distracting hearing a major word of the song cut out. It went, 'and good ol' boys drinking _____and rhye singing this'lll be the day that I die.' The even edited any part of a song that had the word high, or higher. Even if it didn't mean what the censors thought it meant! What is this, 1963? If they're gonna do that at least give us the option of hearing both versions. Imagine if they did Guitar Hero: The Doors edition. When they get to the Whiskey-a-Go Go the word whiskey would be pix-elated on the marquee.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Only curse words like the f bomb are silenced on the Rock Band vocal tracks. Thematic material is still very much present.

Not really...
The censorship in RB is a bit spotty...
References to a hookah pipe in a No Doubt song; censored, in a Bangles song; allowed...

The censorship in RB is not as bad as it is in GH, but I do like RB more now then ever.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Launch the Polaris, the end doesn't scare us
When will this cease
The warheads will all RUST IN PEACE!

FUCK YEAH!

The best metal of all time, coming to Rock Band on Feb. 9 (11th for PS3 suckers)!

For those of you who don't know, the tracklist is:

1. Holy Wars...The Punishment Due
2. Hangar 18
3. Take No Prisoners
4. Five Magics
5. Poison Was The Cure
6. Lucretia
7. Tornado Of Souls
8. Dawn Patrol
9. Rust In Peace...Polaris

Personally, Tornado of Souls is my favorite, but the whole album is balls to the wall awesomeness.

I'm actually looking forward to the Superbowl Who track they are releasing. Could be really cool.

I want it, and I love that album... but I'm not sure I should pay $15 to break my own hands...
