Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Dance based games? Hah. Konami must hate that.

The genre as a whole is dying in America - given that MTV Games is now gone and Harmonix is basically burdened with the debt associated with making games since Rock Band 2 (they also recently laid off 120 people).

Did that guy seriously call "I Wanna be Sedated" one of the hardest songs in the game?

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Through the Fire and Flames Pro Guitar on expert is instapurchase for the lol factor. For good ol' five button guitar I hope they kept the intro more or less the same as GH3 for the tapping factor. I wonder if I can pull it off on the RB3 engine. I remember people arguing whether it was guitar or keyboard anyway. Speaking of which, should be a great keyboard song. I need to actually learn how to play the damned thing. I've put very little time into RB3, mostly because it feels off with the lag calibration whereas RB2 felt spot on.

They uploaded the wrong video at first, but it's now on Youtube, probably the DLC for the week after...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I gave in and bought "Through the Fire and Flames." Parts of it are surprisingly playable, even some of the solos, on 'Hard' difficulty. But I still had to turn on no fail to get through the whole song. I plan on springing it on some of my friends at a party next week and see how it goes.
