hahaha nice.

i downloaded it for ps2 and zipped through the guitar career on expert quite easily. im interested in trying out the other parts, but i was pretty bummed out about how easy the guitar career is.

It would have been better with the proper guitar, which has 5 more buttons.

not really. they're the same buttons, but you have the option to use them during "solo sections". I also imagine they'd be used for the "bass groove" section on the bass parts.

slightly more fun, but would it have the changed the fact that the songs and charts are garbage? nah, not really.

Well you didn't mention that part...lol.

I like guitar hero for fun factor, can pick it up and put it down after a few songs or a few hours, for me it's very relaxing....

ya it's way better to play with other people, i have two guitars for guitar hero, and you can use the headset as a mic, so i was missing drums, but we still had a blast. But solo, especially solo guitar, is super boring and ridiculously easy. I might pick up the drums by themselves so i can try it out, supposed to be the best part

yeah thats what im hearing too... vocals could be fun, but with a few drinks could easily become a disaster, lol.

from what i know, the drum peripheral wont be sold individually for a few months. but it'll definitely be something im interested in.

still a crappy setlist though. On the other hand, its gotta be a lot harder to pick songs that are somewhat equal for all parts.

I told my brother might not be bad if I had some alchol in me.. but def a great game and nice family design.. and the guitar he had for his rock band came with it .. and it had 5 buttons on top.. orange. blue green yellow and red. and then again the same 5 buttons on the bottom. and whammy bar...

Yeah, picked up the new OXM magazine tonight that has 3 exclusive songs for Rock Band, and also got the rest of the DLC I was missing. Over 100 songs now, love it!

the DLC really looks like it's got some potential,a nd thats where my interest would lay, but im not a console gamer, and the ps2 is incredibly lacking.

Speaking of Rockband.....My husband and kids are playing it right now. LOL It is an excellent family game as well as getting friends together to play. I am definitely impressed with it. Hey i am even giving it a shot. LOL I am sooo not good at it. No hand eye coordination what so ever. LOL But good fun!!! As for the songs, at first we did not have many but my husband got some awesome ones last night. Metallica, The Police etc. Anyway just want to give my opinion. Fun Fun Fun.

well, i finally got the chance to play the game with the extra peripherals. Drums are insanely fun. i dont like the feel of the guitar, but im sure thats something you can get used to.

Did i mention i was up until 10am playing the drums?

The Drums are excellent after you get use to them, I like the guitar better actually once I got use to it and went back to the GH guitar I noticed the RockBand one more comfortable and the fact that it doesnt "Click" is excellent

Very true, except that I really don't like the magazine and would only ever get it when they add in songs. I made my money back for the mag anyways... lent the disc to two friends for $5 each.

I played Guitar Hero 3...it's the most retarded game I've ever played /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/rofl.gif

And it's not because I sucked because I actually did pretty good /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/lol.gif It's just not my idea of a good game lol Others seem to enjoy it and it's ok to watch...just stupid to play lol

I have both Rock Band, and Guitar Hero 3. I personally prefer Rock Band, not only because of the Drums, but because of the setlist. Im right onto most of that kinda music. Coheed And Cambria, Crooked X, Bon Jovi, The Police, Metallica, Fall Out Boy, Red Hot Chili Peppers .... come on ... PIMPIN!!!

fall out boy's song on the game LICKS HARD, and i dont mind fall out boy so much, but it's a weak song
the drums are coming out soon by themselves, ill prolly pick them up cuz as of now rock band is pretty easy/boring

let's just go with "Trial", as i dont have any of the peripherals which make for full immersion into the game's experience.
