Rock Band
« on: June 24, 2007, 06:39:11 pm »
Because I already own GH II for the 360 I was sorta not interested in Rock Band. But then I saw a a new picture of the drums and it got me thinking, "maybe I could get it?" I've heard that they want provide a ton of DLC for the game (something GHII said they were going to do) and the guitar from GHII will still work with the game. My girlfriend likes karaoke games and I always wanted to drum, so it's something we could do together.

A couple things holding me back is, do I really need another clunky controller for my 360? I already have one guitar and the racing wheel, I don't know if I have room for a drum kit? Also will the game actually have songs my girlfriend will actually want to sing? That last one not such a big deal, I have no problem druming it up by myself.

What are you're guys thought on this new contender in the music game genre?

It could be interesting provided the cost of all the different peripherials isn't too high.

But honestly, I can't see myself playing on a guitar controller while my friends play the drums, bass, etc. It's just too much to get and setup. I think I'd have more fun going head-to-head with someone in Guitar Hero.

It's a neat concept, but I think EA/Harmonix are trying to do too much.

It looks fun but the money needed to buy all the equipment is too much. GHII was too much as it is on my wallet. A mic, guitar, drums, and the game itself. It's crazy.

Given that you can actually play over the internet and that therefore you only need to buy one peripheral (which if you're a GH2 owner you already have) it's not that expensive.

If you're playing with friends, make them buy the rest of the kit, the cheapskates.

After Guitar Hero II, I'm not interested in paying $90 for a game, when I can save $30 and buy....umm.....generic shooter or racing game?

Ok yeah, I'll probably get it. Not immediately though. Just as soon as the price drops and I get tired of Shadowrun.

That is indeed awesome, if it is the video I saw earlier today.

IGN has a hands on immpression, they seem to like it. Some good things: 100 songs palnned so far to be downloable in the first year! User created avatars are always cool... alright not as cool as 100 songs as DLC.

and also: rock band is not online

This is a lie. It's definitely going to be online, because there's band matching.

But this needs to be in a/the Rock Band thread.

Wish granted. Sign up for the band here. I'd love to get in on this no live for me as of yet but I'm currently in plans to change that maybe. Until then the Gaming Steve Experience needs members.
