This thread will go to many places :D

Let me suggest a few things:

- Add a few pics/videos/previews
- Sort Setlist by Year (as officially done)

More to come when i clear my mind :)
Working on the former and it's already in year order, I just removed the headers saying as such.

I haven't really been following this game at all, mainly cause I already spend too much money on real instruments as it is, but that is a nice setlist.

I'm going to BB every day between now and 11/20.

Also, half the time I'm going completely shit-faced so I have the guts to sing in public.

Im a little bit dissapointed that you cant hear vocal players voices online due to bandwith i guess. I wonder if voicechat/headset will work. Hearing people sing is good for alot of laughs lol
Yeah, but considering what it sounds like just to hear people talk online, it's probably for the best.

I have a good feeling about street dates being broken since DEMOS were being sold to customers. Hopefully we won't have to wait 18 days to get our hands on this marvelous package. :D

For the record, I still demand that RB2 comes with a second kick pedal (I don't care how) for double bass and hi hat action. I wanna live MY Rock Band dream by wailing on awesome double bass patterns! I WANT PROSPICTER MCGOVERN SPEEDS DAMNIT.

Silver coin to whoever knows.

Original post rocks............great work BB and the banner creator. :D

Europe here, and it sucks. 1UpShow now has got me interested in this game, dismissed it before I'd watched this weeks show. Anyone know if the 360 version is region free at all?

Am I the only one who is thinking about rearranging his furniture to accommodate a Rock Band setup?

I'll be having a launch day get together, so I think I need to set up my 'stage' with a little more room. Also, I think I'll buy some roman candles for the pyrotechnics to spice it up a little.
