Guitar Hero/Rock Band Discussion thread

Recommended Posts

I take back what I said about when Danny will FC I'm the One. I didn't realize that the strumming was almost 40NPS. I have no idea when he'll FC it.

 

40 NPS? There's no way. There is a physical limit on how many of the same note the guitar can strum in a second, and it's around 30 IIRC. I thought that strumming was like 23-ish NPS.

 

WMG axed my End of Heartache FC vid. I'm a sad panda. Sony also flagged my Best Of You one, but it looks like they're not as douchey as WMG.

Haven't bothered to post in this thread in a while (if at all). Got the Wii copy of VH about a week ago, have done roughly 50% on both bass and guitar, mostly on expert (I think one bass song and about 3 guitar songs weren't on expert).

 

I like GH5 much better for the reasons stated above. The loading screens take forever, the game as a whole has a bad structure to it. Also there's no Converse Chuck Taylors in the game as far as I know (which makes me the most angry, there's a pile of rip-offs, only decent shoe a rockstar creator [or whatever] character can wear) how hard is it to get the license agreement again if you already did?), although the guys in Van Halen are wearing them. Has anybody finished the game and unlocked them?...

 

Plus most of the songs aren't that great. Not a huge fan of Van Halen to begin with. But I did enjoy Stacy's Mom, I Want it All, and Space Truckin' (so dumb but so fun to play since it's so repetitive)

 

Are the World Tour drums compatible with the current version of Rock Band? LEGO Rock Band comes out at some point soon, but I need a set of drums first (and a mic) and the Band kit is only $100 at Wal-Mart... game, mic, drums, guitar (which we have 2 already)... Then get the rock band game for Christmas.

I use the World Tour drums for Rock Band 2 if that's what you're asking. They work fine, although some rolls are a bit more difficult.

 

I don't really pay attention to the clothing unlockables. I'll take a peek for you next time I play.

I have Rock Band 2 and I play the drums on Expert... I just got an HDTV today and the lag sucks. Even though I calibrated it as well as I can, I still miss a few notes here and there... :|

I know how you feel. I have the same problem with World Tour on my TV, and no matter how I calibrate it, it always feels off. I also got a sorta messed up guitar <_<

BTW is there a way I can get Rock Band in HD or something? The graphics don't looks so good on a big TV and I'd like to make them better. ;)

If you are playing on the XBox, then yes. There is a little switch on the HDMI cable you flick. If you have already done that, I don't know.

 

Oh, and randomly yesterday, I FC'ed Get Clean on Expert Drums! On video too! I'll upload soon, after I'm done no lifing Aviansies.

Pretty awesome TBH.


So don't let anyone tell you you're not worth the earth,

These streets are your streets, this turf is your turf,

Don't let anyone tell you that you've got to give in,

Cos you can make a difference, you can change everything,

Just let your dreams be your pilot, your imagination your fuel,

Tear up the book and write your own damn rules,

Use all that heart, hope and soul that you've got,

And the love and the rage that you feel in your gut,

And realise that the other world that you're always looking for,

Lies right here in front of us, just outside this door,

And it's up to you to go out there and paint the canvas,

After all, you were put on the earth to do this,

So shine your light so bright that all can see,

Take pride in being whoever the [bleep] you want to be.

Superkowz, do you even have an HDMI cable? I wouldn't think so if you just got an HD TV... you need an HDMI cable, any one will do, although they're a bit pricey.

Yeah, don't buy an official Xbox HDMI cable, they are completely overpriced when you can just buy a really long one at Best Buy or something for $15-$20

Even if it's a dumb story, telling it changes other people just the slightest little bit, just as living the story changes me. An infinitesimal change. And that infinitesimal change ripples outward-ever smaller but everlasting. I will get forgotten, but the stories will last. And so we all matter-maybe less than a lot, but always more than none.

Downloaded GH III demo today, already got through the easiest song (lol) on Expert with about 85% with a normal controller (with a slightly broken right bumper). Trying to get that to at least 95% during the weekend. :D

Ordered GH III with two guitar controllers for 42.90, getting it next week. Can't wait. :lol:

Did you but it from Best Buy or something? Because they overprice theirs by $50+.

Thought this might be worth bumping for the fact that Green Day: Rock Band has been announced.

 

Harmonix went from The Beatles . . . to Green Day. WTF, seriously.

That was a terrible idea to do Green Day. I mean, the band sucking aside -- who is going to have fun playing their songs? They just aren't made for fun gameplay. The only reason the Beatles worked, gameplay speaking, is because of the unique vocals sections.
