 The website has been updated with a shitload of stuff.

Guitar Hero 3 seems so bland after watching some of those videos.

Two weeks!

They have demos of guitar / drum up at Best Buys now. The UI isn't as flashy as Guitar Hero's but the animation looked a lot better (actual lip-synching yay) and the drums were obviously pretty fun to use.

I think in terms of feature set and whatnot Rock Band is a much more attractive package, but I have 3 problems:

A) Cost. 170 dollars as a fucking lot for one game, no matter how you look at what you're getting.
B) Setlist. It just isn't very good. I know that the DLC will offer tons of new songs, but it goes without saying that you'll have to pay for it. Having to pay for songs because they couldn't get good ones on the disc sort of irritates me.
C) Space. I live in a cramped dorm room already, I have no idea where I'd fit all this shit.

Honestly, there are enough other games out there I'll probably just skip them both and make my decision as to which, if either, I'll get over the summer when there are no games coming out again.

Yeah, I like the set list for Guitar Hero III a lot better.  But Rock Band's gameplay looks far more interesting.

I'd get this just for "My Sharona".

Actually, though, a real guitar is just $20 more expensive, and I have a drum set.  I would also need a console to play it on.  So, no.

Zomg. It's so much fun to play at Best buy. Even the vocal-portion works really well, which I didn't expect. The guitar is all wonky though, but I'll just use my GH guitar instead. And the drums are SO MUCH FUN. Especially if you're a drummer (which my g/f is). I have a feeling she's going to put it on her christmas list, which gives me a really sweet excuse to buy it.

I heard the demo guitars are kinda crap because they're pre-release demo/prototype guitars. Apparently the guitars that ship with the game are of much higher quality. Although I suppose it will take some time to get used to the buttons on the guitar.

Zomg is Rock Band awesome. The drums work perfectly. The bass and guitar parts are almost exactly GH3 with sort of better songs. (well, it's close)

Unfortunately, the vocal portion doesn't work at all. If you sing, you lose. If you hum very loudly throughout the song, you win.

I'm so sad right now. I finally set up my Rock Band set today and my neighbor got angry at me because he can hear the drumming through the floor. I'm not sure what to do prevent the transmission of drum noises through the floor!

I'm sort of using the coffee table as a riser, but I think I'm gonna need something soft in between. Also, the pedal still needs to go on the floor.

I'm solving this problem for the time being by playing in my friend's concrete apartment.

I have had no difficulty with the vocal portion. The only issue that I take with the game is that I have sung "In Bloom" more times than Kurt Colbain himself before he offed himself.

My father plays guitar, as in real guitar, and I honestly think he'd murder me if I spend the inordinate amount of money required to buy either Guitar Hero or Rock Band. He'd bash my head in with the Guitar Hero controller while I sleep. I think he'd enjoy the appropriateness and the closure the murder weapon provides.

Well, see the thing is, not everyone is skilled or talented enough to be able to play a repertoire of 59 rockin' songs with more songs added every week right off the bat.

Also, everyone hates you when you pick up a real guitar at a party and start playing Weezer. (usually)

Finally, somebody gets it.

The only time the two come into conflict are with the people who think that guitar hero counts as playing a real guitar.  It is not.

This, however, does not distract from its rawk factor.

I love this game.

Me and my friend want some Breaking Benjamin in it though. The 360 version of GH3 got the Halo theme, Rock Band should get Blow me Away.

Also, there needs to be more ballads. The drum parts would (probably) suck, but get a power ballad going at a party, and I imagine good times to be had, what with the lighters, and possible flashing, pending on how much alcohol is consumed.

I'm also kinda pissed (though barely) that the track listing doesn't take into consideration your "attitude" (metal, rock, punk, so on and so forth) My guys were metal, therefore, they would not sing/play fallout boy. Ever.

My brother and I played a bit with drums and guitar at a Best Buy today.  I really like the Stratocaster-esque controller.  It reminds me of the Squire I have at home.  Only it felt like I was going to break the controller where the neck met the body.  I thought it was awesome that there was  a second set of buttons on the highest frets too.  I thought it was for finger tapping.  But then decided that it was just for aesthetics, really.  So if you want to arse yourself to move your hand all the way up the neck to play a solo that sounds like it's way up on the fretboard, you could, and look like you're really doing it too.  Or, if you think you're funny, play the low notes on the high buttons, and the high ones near the headstock.

/rant (Sorry!  I'm tired!)

Anyways, it was fun.

Like anyone in their right mind, I desperately want this game, but it's just not worth the near 200 dollars. I bought myself Guitar Hero III as an early Christmas present and enjoy it immensely. Plus, from what I've seen and heard, the guitar parts for Rock Band are significantly dumbed down from what you'd find in Guitar Hero and can be downright boring at times.

man i hate guitar hero. not because it's bad but because i can't play it at all. i have bad blood circulation and very poor dexterity in my fingers and i just cannot move my fingers fast enough to play even the easiest song on the easiest difficulty. i can't even roll a fucking cigarette because my hands are so shaky. houses of cards are out of the question as well.

however, i play drums and would like to check out how the drums work for Rock Band. i hear good things.

I finally played it today. The guitar feels weird. As in, it would randomly miss notes, even though I know I hit them. I do like the shape of the strum bar now, because I can play bass like an actual bass.

The drums were fun, but I think I underestimated them by playing Hard on my first attempt.

I never played the Best Buy displays, but I should try it, because the retail version doesn't feel very "solid" compared to the GHIII wireless.

If the GHIII controller had the Rock Band strum bar, it would be perfect. Maybe I could mod it or something, but I was never really good at that kind of thing.

I've been playing this since release and am loving it.  The game is very polished on world tour mode (the solo is practically non-existent but who cares), although there are some glaring design flaws in the peripherals -- as you're probably aware if you've been reading a video game blog over the past three months.

My drum pedal snapped at the spring within a week.  I can virtually guaranty this will happen within a year to at least one of two people who buy this product until they fix the incredibly stupid design of the pedal that puts virtually no reinforcement over the part of the plastic pedal that takes the most pressure.  Happily, I have a drill and am not completely useless with it, so I reinforced the pedal myself with metal braces screwed to the top of the pedal (following instructions off the internet, natch) and it now feels and plays better than before it broke.  The incredible thing here is that prior to fixing it myself I had the company send me a replacement and the replacement piece has exactly the same design.  I mean, Harmonix, baby, we're talking about two pieces of metal worth about 3 cents attached to the bottom of your freaking pedal.  It's not rocket science.  The fact that they made the drum heads so well and then screwed the pootch so horribly on something so simple is almost funny.

As for song selection, I agree about the repetitiveness of the beginning songs (In Bloom, Creep, Train Keeps on Rolling, etc.) but once you get out of New York you rarely hear them again and you get to lose again and again on The New Pornogapher's Electric Version (am I the only person who finds this song somewhat challenging?  It doesn't sound challenging, what the hell?)  My brother has already emailed Arts & Crafts and Harmonix demanding Broken Social Scene, and apparently someone from A&C emailed back saying they'd love to.  The ball is in your court, Harmonix.

I've already gotten used to the hammer-ons. Just look for the smaller notes. It can't be that much harder than looking for the absence of a tiny black circle via Guitar Hero.

But I understand the problem with the guitar itself, seeing as it malfunctions 5 out of every 4 times.
