Default Rock Band

Anyone ever played Rock Band? I want to, and I saw the Xbox 360 bundle in Wal-Mart today, and I wanted it so badly. Sadly, I only had $5 to spend at the time .

I hope to answer in the affirmative today. Mine is very nearby at least, according to tracking.

Looks like a rippoff of Guitar Hero.
I 'read' about it in the Official Nintendo Magazine. I put read in inverted commas (or whatever they are called -o_-o) because I mostly only look at the pictures and captions xD.

It's made by the people who made Guitar Hero. It takes Guitar Hero and adds drums, singing, and bass playing to it (well, I think even GH2 has bass), and is setup to be played as an actual band - 4 players at once doing those 4 things. Guitar Hero 3 on the other hand, is some garbage made by people other than the makers of Guitar Hero, which explains all the extreme lameness of it.

Also note that Guitar Hero 4 (and the upcoming... Rock Revolution?) is a ripoff of Rock Band, ironically.

Rock band is so much fun! I can't sing, but I can play guitar and drums on hard.

It is indeed! I discovered that Davedude is right yesterday! Of course, I can barely drum on easy so far. I can probably do hard guitar sort of, that's about where I was on Guitar Hero. I never finished hard, but I got through half of it.

It's wow awesome. Now if only I could coordinate my foot and hands.

I only have one kick pedal. A second one sure would help, though.

We dropped by Wal-Mart and nabbed this game today. It is PWNSOME! And that opinion comes from playing Say It Ain't So, In Bloom, and Mississipi Queen on Easy on Drums! BTW, I'm drums, my mom is guitar, and my brother is bass. We intend on getting my dad to sing the lyrics to "Wanted Dead or Alive" when he gets back from a buisness trip.

*sigh* Well, a day later, and we're at the point where we have to play on Hard, and my mom is having issues coordinating herself, and my brother is bored of the game already. And hard is hard. The only song we're capable of completing on Hard is "Say It Ain't So".

Yeah, I know, I think we all just needed a break at that point. So we switched our positions; my brother\my mom was drums, my mom\myself was lyrics, and my mom and I alternated guitar.

Hey Jamul, can we have an update on where you are? I can play lead guitar & bass on Hard (which I learned in GH3), a few songs for drums on Hard, and singing on Easy.

I'm struggling through the beginning of medium drums. I'm not concerned with guitar at all, I know that game, and I know how good/bad I'll do (barely surviving hard). With these games, I've never 'finished' them, I just don't see how I could ever get even close to good enough to pass a song on expert. But I'm still getting better at drumming as I go. I hope I can at least get into hard on it.

Mr brother has this game.

I only played it afew times(On the bass) but it was fun.
We just need some one to sing now....


Anyway, I haven't played in awhile because my brother got too excited and broke one of the drumsticks!

So now he plays guitar, and my other brother plays bass.

I could sing, but I really don't want too...


Do they sell replacement sticks?

You can use ACTUAL Drum sticks. That's what my friend (who plays percussion) does.

Yeah, the included sticks are just normal ones with Rock Band printed on them!

Yeah, I COULD, but I would have to go buy some first.

I COULD also just go into the woods by my house and pick up some dead sticks to use(Which is free, and probably less time consuming because I don't have to go to a store).

If they were to sell some, you would still have to buy them.

Yeah, that was before I got the idea of using sticks from the woods
