Wary about the new songs, but the others are good. I'll pick those up, at least.

Wow, it's like they hired someone with the specific job of going through Ozzy's catalog to find his worst songs.


Here's 5 songs that should be there:

Diary of a Madman
Bark at the Moon
Flying High Again
Perry Mason
Over The Mountain


Learning those songs on real guitar back in the day made my hands bleed.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

RB3 details revealed. Now the reason why RBN songs have new rules becomes a bit clear - they are doing their own Six String guitar controller.

Also, drums are getting cymbals and the keyboard will be a 25 key midi keyboard.

I can't even imagine how much this will cost. 500 bucks?

http://www.usatoday.com/tech/gaming/...and10_ST_N.htm
Second link has a video - http://link.brightcove.com/services/...id=90946364001



Also, PowerGig is now officially dead. I kind of feel bad for them...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

What do you mean Power Gig is dead? Someone pulled the plug on them? Or they're toast because of Rock Band 3?

Your YouTube link stopped mid-clip. I hope they were talking about being able to export RB2 songs into RB3.

Some songs revealed for RB3:

"Combat Baby" -- Metric
"Dead End Friends" -- Them Crooked Vultures
"Get Free" -- The Vines
"Lasso" -- Phoenix
"Me Enamora" -- Juanes
"Oh My God" -- Ida Maria
"Portions of Foxes" -- Rilo Kiley
"The Hardest Button to Button" -- The White Stripes
"Been Caught Stealing" -- Jane's Addiction
"In the Meantime" -- Spacehog
"Plush" -- Stone Temple Pilots
"Walkin' on the Sun" -- Smash Mouth
"Crazy Train" -- Ozzy Osbourne
"Here I Go Again" -- Whitesnake
"I Love Rock and Roll" -- Joan Jett
"Just Like Heaven" -- The Cure
"Rainbow in the Dark" -- Dio
"The Power of Love" -- Huey Lewis and the News
"Sister Christian" -- Night Ranger
"Bohemian Rhapsody" -- Queen
"Break On Through" -- The Doors
"Crosstown Traffic" -- Jimi Hendrix

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Yeah, PowerGig can't compete with RB3 if they're basically doing the exact same thing. Maybe if you really like Eric Clapton or Kid Rock, you'd buy their game... but that seems like madness.

And yeah, that's the only YT video that I could find. The link above it should have the full thing.

I think if they announced that they would be patching old songs to work with "Pro" mode, I'd run out and buy the guitar. There are probably some songs from RB1/2 that have piano parts that could be patched as well.

^ Well Baba O'Reilly with piano would allow someone to actually do something during the first 45 seconds of the song.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

There are only two songs on the confirmed list for RB3 that I know and love already. This is looking more and more like a rental for me instead of an automatic buy.

speak for yourself. "Power of Love", "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Here I Go Again" alone are so full of awesome that they justify the purchase for me.

I hope and pray they allow for track importing in the Wii version. I know since there's no HDD you can't do it the same way as the PS3/360 versions... but maybe there can be some way to register your copy of RB2 with Harmonix, then the RB2 songs appear for you to DL in the store?

I know, I know: wishful thinking....

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Lots of info here, too:

http://www.joystiq.com/2010/06/11/ro...ds-on-preview/

I love the sound of a lot of this, especially that Harmonix has given consideration to the fact that a lot of people out there have TONS of DLC that often takes forever to sort through. I love the idea of being able to rate songs I don't care for so they won't show up in random playlists (I tell you what's not fun at all, going through a setlist and doing pretty good and then getting slammed on some shitty death metal song at the end).

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

102 button guitar. Jesus Christ.

Right now, they have to sell me on the Pro mode. I'm willing to shell out the money for yet another "real" guitar, but the game has to actually be a good instructional tool for it to be useful in any way.

I feel bad for all those Ion Drum Kit people though. Their 300 dollar kits are now useless.

Some more details:
http://www.plasticaxe.com/2010/06/11...e-peripherals/
http://www.plasticaxe.com/2010/06/11...functionality/

For peeps who like drums, it seems that they've been adding cymbal support into ALL previous RB2 DLC. It looks like none of the old songs will be compatible with Keyboard or Guitar Pro though.

A couple of videos showing the madness that is pro mode.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

A picture of the keyboard, the full guitar and the guitar hybrid controllers...



http://www.joystiq.com/2010/06/11/yo...ents-revealed/

And the official teaser/trailer...



Set list creation and song selection has been completely revamped. It’ll be easier to find songs you want to play via advanced filters, which we knew about from the USA Today story. But did you know you’ll be able to hide songs you don’t want to play? And find songs you may not know about via a song-recommendation system that will “suggest tracks from Rock Band’s colossal music library, based on personal fan preference”? You’ll also be able to save set lists and share them with friends, both in-game and via RockBand.com.

Everything’s integrated. We knew about the new, all-encompassing career mode that tracks your progress no matter what you’re doing in the game. But did you know that career mode will have over 700 “goals and rewards”? And that online leaderboards will be integrated into the career mode? And that you’ll be able to share your progress via in-game integration with Twitter, Facebook, “and more”? Well, see? Now you do.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Just when I think I'm out, they keep pulling me back in. The keyboard sounds awesome!

One of the pics of the guitars showed what looked like a real guitar with a 1/4" input jack... I wonder if they will sell an adapter to allow me to use my guitar with RB3.
