"Rock Band" Worked for Me. [Dec. 9th, 2007|03:30 am]

"Rock Band" . . . pretty sweet video game.

I can't understate my level of tired . . . didn't get much sleep Friday night. Yet, I was over at Art and my cousin's place on Saturday. I watched my Heidi and my cousin Michelle bake cookies. Okay, I lied. I didn't actually watch them bake cookies. I did travel with my cousin Tom to a local Kroger's to get them eggs, peanut butter, and powdered sugar, though . . . so yeah, I did help in some way.

Tom and I terrorized Michelle and Art's cats with our wicked abilities on the game.

For some reason, I can't really do the guitar parts that well, but I seem to have potential to rule the vocals. I did a few of the tracks I knew well, like "Say It Ain't So" by Weezer, "Vasoline" by the Stone Temple Pilots, "In Bloom" by Nirvana, and "Sabotage" by the Beastie Boys (of which, the latter - you just scream. It's all about the rhythm).

Most of the vocals . . . on Medium or Hard . . . I hit at least 90-95 percent.

We couldn't do the drums because the cats apparently went extra-crazy to them.

So yeah . . . that game ruled. I wouldn't buy it, but I'd certainly say that I enjoyed it.

Also, I can't get this song out of my head. To boot . . . after doing 2-3 hours of making myself hoarse with the vocals on Rock Band . . . I came home and hit this song pretty well in a male range.

PS - I can't stand The White Stripes version.

PPS - I refuse to sing karaoke in bars. I hate that shit. So this game got mad praise by my blurb.

WTF? That song is terrible.

I never bothered to try Guitar Hero and I probably won't bother with Rock Band. And I definitely will never buy it. The price is outrageous. About as much as buying a whole new game system, right?

I guess I just like my games to be played with a controller. I was never good at the arcade games with the guns and I'm certainly not a DDR player. No, give me Madden or Halo any day over these games that let you do something you could easily do on your own.

I'm not good at games w/o a controller, either, but I just learn to get awesome at them.

Price is outrageous. I didn't buy 'em, heh!

And I love my 1 player gaming, too.

But you're DEAD WRONG on that song. It's chicks from Calgary, man. And unlike Comic Sans, this song rules. You just need it to get in your head, muahahahaahahaha.

I love Guitar Hero and I played this game at my sister's house a few weekends ago. It's really fun especially when you got alot of people so you can have the whole band play, I plan on purchasing it after the holidays.

One of these days, I'm going to have to actually get an Xbox 360. When that happens, I think I'll borrow a guitar controller and like maybe an idle Guitar Hero II and learn how to do the stuff better.

I just can't get past a 'medium' setting without getting crushed . . . I've never actually had practice time with the thing. Most of my ability . . . improvisation.

Apparently, I noticed there was a 2nd guitar ability for bass on there . . . drums . . . lead guitar . . . singing . . . seemed like a 4 player game with that Rock Band game.

Yeah, it's easier on Rock Band to play guitar and there is the bass setting. You can use the wireless guitar from Guitar Hero and use it on Rock Band also. I can barely go to medium but my brother has to use hard, he says that medium is too slow.

The easy seemed easier.

On a good day I could do medium in GH II.

I dunno - there's downloadable content, and I don't know what add-ons are available..

They weren't on my cousin's version. I was just in a sing-y mood and sang-along to the video.
