It's kind of shocking to me in retrospect (considering how into RB I was at one time), but it's gonna take a lot to get me to buy anything more than the game disc this time around. I've got enough plastic instruments.
It was the loveliest party that Ive ever attended
If anything was broken Im sure it could be mended
My head cant tolerate this bobbing and pretending
Listen to some bullet-head and the madness that hes saying
Yeah, sadly this. I saw my guitars behind the sofa the other day and thought "I haven't played Rock Band in ages!". Then I realised I've had my PS3 replaced so I'd need to install and import RB1, install RB2 and download 8 million tunes. So I said "fuck it" and I doubt I'll ever play it again.
It's funny how the 'hot new thing' can become so horribly dated, so quickly.
The Walmart-exclusive AC/DC track pack (bombed), track packs in general, Lego (it's terrible for everyone) RB, RBN only accessible from RB2 and nothing else, and soon: Green Day:RB (I love Green Day btw; no band has 40 good songs, NO BAND)
Still, I was hoping RB3 was actually going to be good. No gimmicks, just a solid upgrade to RB2 (like 2 was to 1) that would keep my friends and I playing.
The introduction of a keyboard smacks of desperation (new gimmick). It also pretty much ensures a bad setlist. The focus on RB3 should have been to make the ultimate band music game, not send the company into financial ruin.
