    I would, but I own a Wii and Harmonics are lagging.

    I've played it on PS3 and it's a lot of fun...just like Guitar Hero. Like Guitar Hero, still not sure if I want it as it gets boring as hell and I prefer to play the actual instruments.
  • anyone?

    I've heard about this but never really looked into it too much. I just did some searches on it, and I have to admit, since I can not play drums in real life, it would be so much fun to play drums on Won't Get Fooled Again [or all of Who's Next, which will be downloadable.] :D

  • What is the drum set-up like? Snare, hihat, crash, and bass? Seems like that would cost a fortune.

    if you buy the bundle with the game, guitar and microphone, it's $170. it's $200 for everything if bought separately.

    Wow...that's like the opposite of real drums.
  • Ahhh another music game how wonderful. LOL


    Do the hookers and drugs come with this game? :D

    Ok after looking at that site and another site about this game. I just don't get what the point is. Instead of forming a real band you pretend in a video game? I don't really play video games so I'm out of the loop.

    yeah, you're right. instead of playing madden, i should go out and form my own pro football team.

    But that's different. Anyone, if they put enough time into it, can learn to play the guitar...even is not so good. Not everyone can can play pro football.

    Am I getting sarcasm from a video game player? :D

    I wasn't even talking about Madden anyway. And that's a little different.


    I think they used to be called garage bands.

    LOL!

    Great episode! :D


    I think the whole Guitar Hero/Rock Band thing has gone far enough and is just silly. Yeah, GH is fun for like 5 minutes (while drunk) and Rock Band is sorta fun for like 10 minutes (while drunk)...I just don't see the point in spending all that money.
  • Pretty fun. They had one set up at walmart last night and I messed around with it a bit. If I had a lot of money to waste I'd get it.

    Exactly! For about the same money people spend on Guitar Hero + the guitar you could easily buy a real acoustic guitar (squire). Hell, that's how I learned! I'm a decent REAL guitar player and it was one of the best things I ever decided to do. It's so rewarding sitting down and playing...and playing the real thing. I also play piano, drums and saxophone...all of which I thoroughly enjoy.

    I opened this thread with the specific intention of seeing who would be the jackass to post something about "just join a real band" comment. Congrats, you win Patrick! If your not a gamer, why read and put down those who are? I mean I'm not homosexual...but I'm not gonna call you a fag.

    Aww thank you for understanding what I mean. :D

    I wish I had thought of these games. Cause whoever did is laughing all the way to the bank. hehe

    It's just for fun like any video game

    You can still play video games and play a REAL guitar and learn how to play that

    I've done both

    I did some thinking of how to respond to your comments. So here it goes.


    First off I take my hat off and thank you and everyone for this award of being the ''jackass''. It means so much. :D Something told me I was gonna get hit with shit for my remarks in this thread. But I went ahead with it anyway. With the month I've had nothing anybody says will bother me right now. So why do you take so offense to remarks about a video game I made?

    I asked what's the point and really went easy on my remarks. If I remember correctly sarcaism always makes it interesting around here. So if I ruffled your feathers so sorry and get over it.

    Nope I'm not a gamer and that's fine with me. When I babysit my nephews and niece I'll play video games with them. I just grew out of that faze of playing video games. You and everyone else that enjoy it have a great time. Just cause some of us don't play don't get bitchy when we have a little fun with you. I can't tell you how many times I've waited on freinds cause they are finishing up a game. Oh well I guess. LOL


    Say whatever else you want to say. I'm washing my hands of this and moving on.

    peace
  • I have played guitar for 11 years...and GH fucking ROCKS...loads of fun. Doesn't matter if you are a gamer/guitar player/or whatever...this game is fun and Rock Band looks sweet as well. Not trying to be a pompous asshole, but video games can be fun every once in a while...plus it gives you the opportunity to play with your friends who dont play the "real" guitar. Overall good times!
    I'm trying to drink away the part of the day I cannot sleep away...
  • My room mates and I have been playing Rock Band all evening. It's the most fun we've had in some time. You can play at your own skill level even within the band, which is awesome. so i'm not bored, and they aren't horrible. The drums were tricky at first, but a few songs in and I was golden.

    Very fun, glad I got it. Having some friends over tomorrow night also.

  • We got it last night...it's so much fun! I've been doing the singing; my husband's been doing the guitar (he's a guitar hero vet).

    So far, I like "Maps" the best on touring mode. We have a little baby, so once 11pm rolled around, we had to quit! I miss being able to stay up all night!

    Some songs are so much harder to sing than others & I had no idea that "Mississippi Queen" actually had lyrics! Also, I like when you use the mic for mini percussion like cowbell (woot!) and tambourine.

    Haven't played with the drums yet...they look cool.

    Another vote for what this guy said...

    I have played guitar for the majority of my life and currently play in a couple of different real bands. These games are a ton of fun and offer a unique twist on traditional video games. Of course my wife wasn't thrilled when she saw all the "instruments" scattered all over the floor in front of the TV when there are real instruments occupying the other side of the basement... lol
