    Hold down 2 buttons next to eachother and let them sustain.

    That's what we call boring. Also, neither game took that approach. I guess Rock Band is closest with their single fret sustain.
    Looks great. I'm not keen on the lack of export to RB2, but playing a full on Beatles game should be an experience, so I'll deal with it. Might have to buy a mic stand for the voxtarring :)

    Possibly the worst band ever
    Don't know the songs, Kiss is often fun on Guitar even though I don't particularly like them as a group.
    Instant buy. My Name is Jonas was fun in GH3. Probably 3 sightread full combos but still worth it.
    Who? What?

    Blink is fun on the drums. And I totally agree on Weezer.

    Has there been any word on Lego Rock Band having some kind of export or import song feature?

    Or is it like The Beatles, where they're following Activision's model of crappy segmentation?

    And "younger" music.

    To be honest, I just want Song 2. I'm a sucker, but oh well. :p

    I did get Dammit, but that's the only Blink 182 song I can stand. The Weezer stuff ended up being pretty fun. Pork and Beans + Undone were sightread FCs, but My Name is Jonas was pretty tricky and required some work. The more precise engine compared to GH3 made it a lot harder, and it took me a while to adjust even though I think the chart was pretty similar.

    The Kiss pack was ok, but the live tracks are a little too 'AC/DC' in that the charts are kind of random and sloppy in places, and they stop in the middle of two of the songs for a couple of minutes for the drummer to go solo and let the crowd work into a frenzy about how awesome Kiss is. I guess it's cool if you're at the concert, but if you're in a plastic guitar game... not so much.

    Should be pretty fun, though probably overpriced. If nothing else TIGRYT will help continue rebuilding the Guitar Hero 2 setlist in Rock Band.
    I have Alive, Evenflow, and Jeremy... I even picked up the bonus 3 pack with Alive(Live), and a couple of other tricky guitar songs (Brother, State of Love and Distrust(?). That's probably all the Vedder I can handle!

    Don't forget "The Final Countdown" :)

    But yeah, I'm hoping for exportable, probably wait for it to come down in price like I currently am with Metallica, Smash Hits, probably GH5, and maybe Beatles. Otherwise it's too much money on fake plastic instrument games even for me!

    I'm just glad the GH3 controller works with all the games...

    The music, and several gameplay features are skewed to make the game more child and family friendly. I'm not too sure of the specifics, but building your 'rock power' can do more things in the Lego game than just up your score multiplier - you can use it to alter the landscape of the venues in humorous ways or some such.

    I love my fake plastic guitar games, but yeah, it doesn't really seem sustainable.

    All those games, and still no dedicated Megadeth game. *sigh*
