The only problem I see with RockBand is...
... that noone I know want's to sing while not beeing drunk.

I mean, it's no problem playing guitar and su*king at it in front of friends.
But singing and su*king at it in front of friends is only possible under heavy influence of alcohol. :)

Mic costs only 40 bucks, the rest 60+. And since you can play through the game with any controller a lot of people are going to use the mic. :)

10 Fret Bar FTW!

after reading the preview for this game in the latest Game Informer, I think I will be passing on GHIII and just be picking this game up.

well yeah if you buy everything available...

or you just buy, you know, one instrument and play with that. It does have up to 4 player Co-op over live(vocal, drum, guitar, bass).


But then again, I don't know the official pricing and bundling info, since Harmonix hasn't announced it yet. So I'll just be quiet :p

I dont know why, but when I first looked at the first picture I thought the guy was wearing one legged pants.
Commented on 2007-06-19 19:20:17
I assume the rest of you know that this is the true continuation of GH, right? GH3 is not made by the guys who made GH 1 and 2. They are making Rock Band. Thus, GH3 and on will suck. This game, however, will rape. Don't be a casual gamer n00b. Don't buy GH3.

p.s. That Fender looks like my real one! Sweet. I wonder if those new buttons allow for lead tapping or maybe just some variation between regular notes. Either way, FRIGGIN SWEET. The drum and guitar versions are the ones to look out for.

And I see they didn't ditch those.... "stylized" faces. They make my head hurt...
Commented on 2007-06-19 19:22:53
There's absolutely no reason to assume that GH3 will suck just because Neversoft is making it. Nope, no reason at all. Plus lets not forget that our GH2 controllers will almost certainly work with GH3.. so it's not like we're talking another $90 investment.

I'll wait for some rhythm fan reviews of GH3 before I assume that it's trash, thanks.

Still.. this game will be better :P

I still say it's a bit of a tall order for a non - rhythm game devloper to follow up to GHII, which was a monster sales wise. There's something about Guitar Hero that just works and that may be something not easy for another studio to encapsulate.

I'm certainly not writing Neversoft and GHIII off, I'm just cautious about it as opposed to quietly excited for Rock Band :)

All I know is, as a metal musician who plays double bass drums and metal guitar personally, I'd rather play a music game created by ACTUAL heavy-metal musicians than some skate boarders. =] Maybe that's just me....
Commented on 2007-06-19 23:09:21
Because playing Guitar Hero is so much like playing a real guitar and double bass drums have so much to do with GH3 :P

It's a game and lots of rhythm games have probably been crafted by people who aren't necessarily skilled musicians. Plus.. how do you know no one on the Neversoft team plays?

This certainly sounds better.. and the controller looks much better.. but Neversoft deserves a shot at making whatever type of game they'd like.. and I don't automatically expect it to suck.

I got my Magazine so you can ask your questions lol, i just dont have a scanner to show you the drum set or the HUD.
Commented on 2007-06-20 03:28:10
so..is this game like guitar hero with playable drums and bass?
Commented on 2007-06-20 05:16:56
EA had a tendancy of ruining franchises and good ideas...
Commented on 2007-06-20 05:48:14
I can guarantee you right now that RockBand will be way better than GH3, as long as the setlists are comparable.

I think that's a safe bet. The controller looks fantastic.

And vocals as well..
Commented on 2007-06-20 09:44:34
Well, the good thing about Rock Band is that no one HAS to sing... and I think that's how it's pretty much gonna go down in this garage
Commented on 2007-06-20 11:02:34
At some point - though I appreciate the differences aswell of course - you just gotta ask yourself why you're standing around with three friends with plastic instruments, memorizing insane *codes* that you slap on those plastic instruments instead of simply playing music for real.

I play some guitar and it really isn't that much more difficult. Sure, chords and stuff may be tricky, but still not vastly more so than nailing these crazy button combos either. At the end of the day you haven't really learned anything you can build on, but rather just memorized a crazy button combination down to split second timing.

But I suppose in essence that is what a lot of games are about.
