Beatles ROCK BAND

I dont know if this is a thread yet, i cant see it anywhere, but are any of you (especially our British friends) getting the Beatles ROCK BAND expansion? I am...i can't fricking wait. I am not really into "rock music", the heavy stuff, but THIS will be fun.

I actually think I can drum better than Ringo, then again, I'm sober when I do!! JUST KIDDING...mr. Caveman is a gread drummer...

It's not an expansion, it's a complete independent game. And no, I'm not buying it. I'm a huge Rock Band/Guitar Hero fan but I've never been in to the Beatles.

yes..i stand corrected..it isn't an expansion. I guess the beatles are more from my time, so I could see why some wouldn't care for them, like my kids don't.

Is there any reason this isn't in games?

I'm absolutely getting this game first day. I can't wait.

Also, this probably belongs in the games forum/

I'm no young kid myself - of that era I prefer The Who and the Rolling Stones.

A Rolling Stones Rock Band/Guitar Hero game I would buy day of release, a Queen one I would break in to their publisher's offices and steal.

The Who/Rolling Stones are more 'pure' rock to me...Queen was always more "rock opera"....nothing against Queen, but Mercury's voice made that group, not the so called 'rock muscians' around him..sorry..just calling it as i see it..

True. I think a Queen: Rock Band would be the one time that my friends and I would fight over who gets to do vocals.

If money was no object, yeah I would get it. I will probably wait for it to go on sale. I do love me some Beatles, though.

Re: Beatles ROCK BAND

The Rock Band games are fun to play for half an hour at a friend's place, but not worth much more than that to me. I'm a huge Beatles fan though, so I'll definitely be singing at the top of my lungs helping a buddy unlock the next song or however it works.

For once I'll be able to actually sing along accurately; unless I know the song going in (which is rare given the stuff they've used in the previous games,) it's almost impossible for me to follow that wacky "line that goes up and down" routine. I have the same problem with the guitar or drum parts, where the dots being vaguely between the lines could mean eighth notes or triplets or something else. They should just use real musical notation and teach these kids something!

As far as my young nephew is concerned, these games are all about 1) the posing and 2) pwnage of the song. The manliness of the stance is of utmost importance to him, also.

Re: Beatles ROCK BAND

I just picked it up along with the John Lennon style guitar. As soon as the kids go to bed the wife and I are gonna rock out. The Beatles are cool, but I'd love a Rock Band The Who!
