    The obvious joke they could've gone for would've been the Activision guy saying they even fixed the spelling mistake when making "Guitar Hero: The Beetles" because that's just how dedicated they are to their craft. :p

    So anyone playing the Beatles game? I'm not in to the beatles but I still enjoyed the game. Most of the songs are really fun to play, and the little animated sequences were really cool.

    I must say, one of the funniest things i ever saw in video games would be Johnny Cash getting down when singing "Play that funky music, white boy" in Guitar Hero 5...
    :lol:

    I thought it was really kinda chuckle-worthy seeing male characters singing with female voices and vice-versa.

    I beat the Endless Setlist 2 on Medium yesterday with 5 stars on each song. It took me 7 hours with a short break every 12th song. While I do feel a sense of accomplishment, I find myself angry at the game design decision to make the Endless Setlist the way it is.

    For one thing, it takes up pretty much half a waking day. That's not a good thing either socially or physically. The alternative is to manually break it up with pauses, causing unnecessary power consumption and preventing the use of the TV until it is finished.

    Why couldn't they put in a temp save feature? Even real bands seldom play for more than 2 hours in a set without a break, and I've never heard of any band playing for over 6 hours straight. Allowing a save every 20th song would be a nice compromise between stamina and reality.

    I don't plan on doing the ES2 on Hard or Expert. As Han Solo said, "No reward is worth this."

    Is it really endless if it can be beaten?

    It's 84 songs, but it sure seems endless.

    Wow, impressive. We actually held a party to do the ES1 on hard for the first rockband, that got pretty grueling by the end. I thought that ES2 didn't allow pausing? That's the only reason we haven't done it yet.

    There's an Iron Bladder achievement for beating the game on endless without pausing... which is just insane.

    Yeah, I'm a huge Beatle fan and am loving it. I haven't played Rock Band in awhile, but me and my friends are (and my dad, who's a big Beatle's fan as well) are loving The Beatles Rock Band. I never liked singing in Rock Band, but I am singing my tail off in this one - mainly because I already know the songs inside and out already anyway, the harmonies are really fun to do too. I am just having a lot of fun with it personally.
