Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

After several weeks of metal, it's good to get something else this week. We'll definitely be picking up the Devo/Duran Duran tracks. I think that will leave us just five songs short of 200 in our Rock Band song library.

I was excited for Devo, until I listened to the songs and realized I had no idea what they were. I did get the two Duran Duran tracks. "Rio" is a super easy song for most of the way through and then out of nowhere it totally kicked my ass!

Don't have any details about price, but the download for the week of Aug. 24 is the complete album of "Moving Pictures" by Rush. It includes original versions of Limelight and Tom Sawyer, not the already-existing covers in the game.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

It looks like the 5 dollar price for the RB1 import is confirmed. And you can just rent the disc and do it if you're getting RB2.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Hopefully that\s still available a couple of weeks from now.

I find it odd that the Rush album failed certification though...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Just wanted to bring up the fact that the best song ever, "Charlene" by Stephen and the Colberts is available for free now! And I thought it was going to come out next week. It's too bad that the song is so short though.

  • "Wake Up Dead" (160 / $2)
  • "The Conjuring" (160 / $2)
  • "Devil's Island" (160 / $2)
  • "Good Mourning / Black Friday" (160 / $2)
  • "Bad Omen" (160 / $2)
  • "I Ain't Superstitious" (160 / $2)
  • "My Last Words" (160 / $2)
Rock Band Tour Pack (320 / $4)
  • "One of Those Nights" - The Cab (80 / $1)
  • "Hands Down" - Dashboard Confessional (80 / $1)
  • "She's a Handsome Woman" - Panic! At the Disco (80 / $1)
  • "Natural Disaster" - Plain White T's (80 / $1)

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

After some tinkering, I got my drumset working again. I was looking for replacement kick pedals online when it struck me how much some of those kick pedals looked like my high-hat control pedal for my drum kit. Lo and behold, it works as a trigger for Rock Band as well, so now I've got a really, really sturdy pedal for the game. I also purchased the silencing pads, and so far it is much quieter while still getting the same response.

I am all set for RB2! Though the Force Unleashed will be taking up most of my free time for the near future.

Ugh. I wish the whole bundle came out tomorrow, I'd buy it no questions asked.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Picked my copy up today and imported the RB 1 songs. Now I can sell RB1 towards The Force Unleashed. Since we can do the campaign on line, anyone want to do a TBBS band?

We could do a Kirk, Spock, Bones, Scotty line-up.

I messed around with it for a bit and I am glad that Hyperspeed is back! Plus they now made chords into hammer-ons (which feels great).
